Publisher's summary

My name is Mabel, the girl who “wouldn’t hurt a fly".

Of course I wouldn’t.

I’m an entomologist for goodness’ sake. I work in a nature center. Bugs are my jam.

It’s the humans in my life who are starting to get me down. I’m used to them calling me sweet and innocent. I can even handle them calling me naive. But when they lie and keep secrets from me? That's when my proverbial pincers want to come out.

Trouble is, I'm not the girl who fights back.

Not until a handsome groundskeeper with a dirty mouth and secrets of his own shows up and lights all sorts of fires in me.

In the bug world, the female is always the fiercest. The praying mantis doesn’t worry about being a “good girl". Nope, she follows her instincts no matter how crass or crude they may seem to others.

Turns out I could learn a thing or two from her.

I’m not necessarily looking to tear anyone’s head off, but after decades of being nice, it's high time for me to return to nature and unleash my wild side.

Such a great addition to this series.

I LOVE to see Erin Mallon narrating a book I want to read, so when I saw flirtasaurus was out I knew I had to listen to it. I thought it was cute and liked it a lot.
THEN Lovebug came out and blew me away. I didn’t realize that I needed this book! It was everything I love about romance novels and avoided everything I usually dislike in them.
Can’t wait for the next in the series.
I think Erin Mallon will quickly become a “buy anything and everything” author for me.

Hilarious Rom Com

I loved Mabel and Wally’s story, it had me laughing from beginning to end. Erin is an amazing writer, this book was a lot of fun and had a twist you won’t expect. This book was also narrated by Erin and her delivery of Mabel and Wally was amazing. I absolutely recommend this book and will be in my repeat listen pile. Also I would suggest not eating or drinking while reading or listening.

A Buger-ific Time

LoveBug manages to do the impossible....surpass the Flirtasaurus which is a pretty tall order. This is one of the best rom-coms that I have ever listened to. Funny, sweet, with a smidge of steam make LoveBug a true gem. Now, I must wait for the third book, which is killing me!!!!

LOL

Erin Mallon has a fantastic sense of humor and a true gift for writing comedy and dialogue. The back and forth with the friends is hysterical. Erin is a brilliant narrator and the fact that she is speaking the words she wrote took it to the next level. This is a funny, sweet, and unique romance but not particularly steamy if that is what you are looking for. Overall an enjoyable listen.

Giggle, Laugh, Chortle, Snort

However many synonyms there are for laughter, that's what I did while listening. There's magic in a narrator performing her own novel, I think. Keep them coming EM. Please!

Lovebug

It has taken me a few days to get my thoughts together after getting this wonderful book early.
Erin’s voice shines through in her writing, I loved it. Just as much as I loved the first book.
Mabel and Wally are fun and funny. I had a preconceived notion of who I thought Mabel was from book 1 but I was so wrong she is so much more.
I like that she knows herself even when she isn’t always confident in her choices she figures it out. Her love of all things bugs is pretty freaking great. I truly believe she grows the most in this book because she learns that she is a pretty cool lady and people will accept her for herself if given the chance.
Wally is AWESOME! I like that he just liked Mabel for who she is. Wally is probably my favorite character Erin has written so far.
Again the narration is phenomenal as always.

Outstanding!!!

This book is a fantastic follow-up to Flirtasaurus, we get to enjoy some of the characters that we met in that book and we see much more of Mabel and her positive outlook on life in general. I would love to have someone like Mabel in my life, she is a fun breath of fresh air who is finding her way her life and love.
