Apparently saying “I love you too” to h’s humiliatingly public confession is good enough. Let me make this clear, after ALL that, h was the one yo humiliate herself with grand gesture. Not him. And we as a reader do NOT hear from him telling the h that no, the OW wasn’t staying the night with him like he insinuated and no he no longer feels anything for her.

    I sat on this review for over a month, not sure what to do with my feelings about Awk-Weird. On one hand, I read this book very quickly (in less than 24 hours), and I enjoyed the writing style. Avery Flynn writes book that I like to read, and I found that I didn't want to put it down. But the couple... I wanted to pull my hair out.

But the couple... I wanted to pull my hair out. So much could have been solved with some very simple discussions between the two MCs. Yes, I know, that was part of their baggage and issues, but it made me want to bang my head against the wall numerous times. Also, if you've read a few Avery Flynn books, you'll start to notice a bit of a pattern... We get insta-lust, miscommunications, friends/sip-and-paint, and big love declarations at the end. I felt a bit like I've read this story before because, even though the plot was different, the formula was too familiar. I also struggled with the fact that the GUY messed up, but the girl ended up apologizing. No thanks. I need grovel-porn in my books, especially when the guy screws up in a big way. Three stars for readability, but I still wanted more from this couple. *Copy provided in exchange for an honest review* goodreads|instagram|twitter|blog

    I really enjoyed getting to know Tess and Cole. They came together pretty fast and resisted the fall as best they could but they fell together naturally in the end, as they were meant to be. Cole was stubborn and resistant to change. Tess was smart but apprehensive. For some reason, these two worked for me. Though Cole especially was frustrating at times, his development translated well in Ms. Flynn’s storytelling.

It was easy to set aside expectations and just experience the events with the characters. The book is not only well written, it had emotional moments, funny moments, and certainly happy moments. As someone who reads a few hundred books a year, I can tell you that some plots feel recycled. That is not my experience with Ms. Flynn’s books. Each, including this one, brings something unique or fresh to the table. Looking forward to the next book. Complimentary copy received and voluntarily reviewed.

    The title of the book is absolutely spot on. Awk-weird is adorably awkward and weird. Awk-weird was the perfect romcom. I couldn’t stop the smile on my face the entire time I was reading this book. It’s sweet and funny with the perfect dollop of charm and captivating chemistry. The characters are adorable!

Even Mr.Thor-lookalike aka Mr.Ice hockey player/ Mr.Everything has a system/Mr.Neat Freak is adorable. These two characters are the prefect example of opposites attract. They were both a shock to each others system and It honestly made for such an entertaining read. Special Shoutout to Kahn! hahaha This is my first Avery Flynn book and I really enjoyed it. I look forward to reading more from her.

    So, you gotta love the way Avery Flynn writes a RomCom. She knows how to make you laugh and have a good time while you root for the underdog and hope for true love. Tess and Cole were absolutely wonderful together. Weirdness times two just made this story special. Tess was a riot right from the beginning. Her attitude and quick wit just made her so enjoyable to read. She had a hell of a life and learned to take everything in stride. But, this time, there’s not much she could do with a hockey puck So, you gotta love the way Avery Flynn writes a RomCom. She knows how to make you laugh and have a good time while you root for the underdog and hope for true love. Tess and Cole were absolutely wonderful together. Weirdness times two just made this story special. Tess was a riot right from the beginning. Her attitude and quick wit just made her so enjoyable to read. She had a hell of a life and learned to take everything in stride. But, this time, there’s not much she could do with a hockey puck coming right at her. She’s either going to put the stick down and pass it or she’s going to score. Unfortunately, as she is trying to pass it, the roof comes down around her. Now, she has no choice but to suck it up and move on or, in this case, move in with someone she never thought she would see again. Cole was down in the dumps. His on-again, off-again relationship has been off for a long time. He has his whole life planned out and now it seems like Marti is throwing a wrench into all of it. He’s organized, predictable and knows just how he likes things. But, there was something about Tess that actually got him interested in something other than brooding. Now, his organized, predictable life is being thrown into a tailspin. First the new plays, then he finds out he’s going to be a daddy and now, Khan. Having Tess around is no hardship but, he didn’t sign up for Khan. Now, together they need to figure out a way to get over their insecurities. They need to learn to rely on each other. They need to learn that the old ways aren’t always the best ways. Tess loves the word temporary. Cole loves the word organization. She doesn’t believe he will stay. He just wants her in his life … and Khan too. Avery Flynn just knows how to tell a story. She knows when to throw in the drama and when to just let the characters go and be themselves. Maybe that’s what I love most about reading her stories. She makes her characters true-to-life. They are people that you could relate to and would love to be friends with. Everyday people with everyday problems. And, her supporting cast of characters are just as much fun as her main characters. All of them truly show what the word friendship means. I loved Ack-Weird. I loved the premise of the story and how they both came to rely on the other. I loved that Tess was able to get Cole to loosen up. I loved that Cole took the word “temporary” out of Tess’s vocabulary. Fun, sassy, sexy and weird … you can’t ask for much more from a story and Avery Flynn knows how to deliver it all.

One night stand later, there's a huge hiccup in their daily life plans. A baby - yup, she's pregnant. There's some push and pull between these two throughout the entire book. Yet, you can see that they have developed feelings for one another. Of course, there's endless drama and ugh, I just couldn't deal with it anymore. In the end, it was cute and reminded me of a hallmark movie.

Is is not love if you do not make a spectacle of yourself? And another thing, all the women have some oddness, while the guys are perfect examples of hot Male pulchritude. The women are tiny, fat, or funny looking, or prone to verbal diarrhea, or have the voice of a 10 year old, or are just some kind of oddball. The men are just hot. I guess it is more happily ever after if the average woman gets the beefcake...

Needless to say, I was really impressed with the story and how well Flynn managed to develop the characters from beginning to end. The story was sweet and entertaining, a definite must read for sure. At the beginning of the story we get to meet Tess Gardner, a flower shop owner who happens to love facts. She is attending one of her friend’s wedding rehearsal party when she overhears a group of hockey players playing a trivia game and answers the questions when she thinks that they are not looking. But she is noticed by one of the players and he invites her to play. Everyone has a good time and Tess immediately feels chemistry between her and Cole. They dance and soon things get carried away. It wouldn’t be until a month later that things would change their lives forever. Tess has always felt that she doesn’t belong. After growing up being shuffled from relative to relative like an unwanted obligation, she started to see things as temporary and made her feel invisible. She has a quirky personality to which people weren’t as accepting of and her love for facts began. Her priority changes when she finds out that she is pregnant and feels the need to give the baby what she didn’t have growing up. But it’s her connection with Cole that make things harder for her and the more time they spend together the more she begins to fall for him. She is afraid of getting hurt and doesn’t know if Cole has any feeling for her at all. Cole Phillips is good at what he does, hockey. He is the overachiever who happens to like structure and a routine. So when Tess shows up to tell him that she is pregnant things don’t go as he plans. His life is about to change forever and he doesn’t know how to react at first. He had a one-night-stand with Tess, yet his ex is all he can think about. What she is going to say once they get back together or so he thinks. Cole is hopeful that everything in his back goes back to normal, but the minute Tess moves in with her cat all hell breaks loose and he’ll have to decide if is worth giving their relationship a try or not. I absolutely loved this book! It was quirky and funny. Tess has been through so much growing up so it’s understandable for her to have her guard up. I loved her personality and how caring she is. On the other hand, Cole might love his routine but he has the biggest heart. They have a lot in common and facts is one of them. They have definitely found their match and they are able to help each other overcome their pasts in order to move on. They challenge each other and it just proves how they are meant to be together. I loved the interactions that she has with her friends, they are her family and they made the book that much funnier. All in all, the story was great and the characters developed as well. The ending is so sweet and it’s definitely one not to be missed. I would highly recommend checking out this book and I cannot wait to read more from the author in the future. :) **I voluntarily read an early copy of this title in exchange for an honest review**

    Skimmed. Boring Didn’t like hero. Not really memorable Heroine was fine Guy messed up, girl groveled and professed love. That took it from 2.5 stars to 1 star.

    One chapter more

    SPOILER ALERT I really wanted to give it 4 stars because I love me some secret baby stories, however the story line was too simar to the book no 1. They said some things, some other ice hockey players said things to rile each other up, they said sorry and we got a happy end. If you read the first book, you know what I'm talking about. Other than that pretty light and easy read.

Temporary would be a whole lot easier though if they could keep their hands off each other ... As I've said before, this series hardly breaks new ground., but they're all fun romantic comedies, often with a core of drama (in this case, Tess's abandonment issues and Cole's rigidity). They're also well written and characterized with lots of time given to the supporting cast of previous and future point-of-view characters.

    Awk-Weird is the second book in Avery Flynn’s Ice Knights series, but it works perfectly fine as a standalone novel. It also links in with The Hartigans, where we first met our leading lady. Whether you’re new to either series or have followed the progression of both, this is an addictive read. As always, Avery Flynn gave a book that had me hooked from the very first page. I was pulled right into the story and quickly fell for the characters and their story.

With plenty packed into the story, Awk-Weird was another great read from Avery Flynn and I cannot wait for book three of the Ice Knights series.

    I’m not gonna lie, most of the time Avery is a hit or miss and I never really know which way it’s gonna go. So I read most of her books LOL because even when they’re a miss, they don’t miss out of the park. This was a hit! If there’s one thing I know that Avery can do well is quirky. As soon as I saw this title, I was all in. I didn’t even need to read the synopsis LOL And it worked for both Cole and Tess! That’s the greatest part!

Tess has a lot of baggage. Baggage that doesn’t really allow her to trust that someone is going to love her enough to stay. I wouldn’t say that Cole comes into the picture with baggage, but boy does he come into it with some serious quirks(lol). They made a super funny couple and it was a joy to read all the shenanigans, especially Cole’s superstitious behaviors. And he has some serious one LOL, but that’s part of the world of any professional athlete, especial in hockey! If you’re looking for a fun afternoon read, then one-click away, this one will not disappoint!

    MY REVIEW This was weird, like I had so many high expectations to love this, but I unfortunately didn't. I thought it was adorably awkward and slightly cute. I found the main couple immature and annoying most of the times, I can see the appeal to others though, I can see why its potential for other readers to enjoy and love, it is though a continuation of her other series. Well I thought it was, as the main chick is bff with the girls from Butterface, Muffintop and Tomboy.

This is not my first Avery book, and it probably wont be my last, they are fun easy, some what angst/drama (ish) rom/coms. Tess and Coles story is very boy meets girl at said wedding they bang, she gets knocked up and then they fall in love, with a hell of a lot of miscommunication, they breakup well not really they are really ever together just boning. "Temporarily" I liked it overall 3 stars.

This book has already stolen my breath away and I don't know if I am going to survive the after-effects this book has caused me. Send help because I have a serious book hangover, ya'll. This is a story that spoke to my heart in so many ways. One of the things that I love about Flynn's books is that she has very realistic characters. You can easily find bits and pieces of yourself in each of her characters like I did with Tess and Cole in this book. With this book, Tess is a nerd and since I am a proper nerd I fell into pieces over her. I really connected with her in so many ways. Cole, while he had loving parents, had an unpredictable childhood since he had to move around a lot because of his father's job. Because of that, he is in constant need of order in his life. Right down to pre-prepared meals and bedtimes. Both Tess and Cole experience such incredible personal growth in this book. It was such a beautiful thing to witness. Tess throws Cole's predictable life into chaos and Cole makes Tess see that not everything is always temporary in life. Their journey to happiness together touched my heart. I love this entire cast of characters. I have read many of the other books that contain these characters and I have fallen in love with each of them along the way. I love the way that they pop up in other books within this amazing fictional world. I am seriously anxious for the next book from this world! When the author runs out of characters to write about I might just die. (Avery, please don't run out of characters. Pretty please? :happy face emoji:) Overall, this is by far my favorite Flynn book to date. These characters just got me and I got them. Their love story was beautiful and the growth that they experienced within themselves individually was inspiring. Flynn's books are always feel-good stories that have the right amount of emotions, heat, and humor. In other words, they are perfect and you will fall head over heels for them. Just saying. I can't recommend this one enough. It is definitely my new favorite. Thanks so much, Avery Flynn! You have done it again! More reviews on my blog: Novel Nerd Faction

    At first sight you'd think Cole Phillips and Tess Gardner being very different- yet the more I read the more I realized they were somewhat the same but in different ways-if that makes sense. They were both quirky in their own unique way. And Tess's random facts about nothing and everything had me laughing and taking some notes to use on later conversations 😉 "We got weddinged" were the famous words that Tess echoed and if she only knew that that would be the beginning of a rollercoaster of an ad At first sight you'd think Cole Phillips and Tess Gardner being very different- yet the more I read the more I realized they were somewhat the same but in different ways-if that makes sense. They were both quirky in their own unique way. And Tess's random facts about nothing and everything had me laughing and taking some notes to use on later conversations 😉 "We got weddinged" were the famous words that Tess echoed and if she only knew that that would be the beginning of a rollercoaster of an adventure that they both would be facing soon. Tess hasn't had an easy life and because of her past she has found it hard to allow people in her life and much less trust them with her secrets/life. But that is exactly what she is having to learn to do with Cole. As they both coexist in each others lives it's like trial and error and at times I felt like there was a massive wreck about to happen. I didn't know if they were going to survive to be honest and I wanted them to because they were so quirky and cute together. They were like apple pie and ice cream/whip cream. You couldn't have one without the other one. A cute/quirky/laugh out loud romance that will have you smiling like a fool at the end 😂😄 Kara~4.5 Stars

    Slow burn and hockey! This book follows Tess, she is the definition of quirky and awkward (hence the title😃) she also loves to read and she owns her own flower shop. Cole, or should I say thor, is the hot hockey player who needs routines and everything to go as planned. Cole and Tess are what you would say the opposites that attract. After one night together leads to an very unplanned pregnancy, a friendship blossoms between the two. This book was definitely slow burn but it was fun watching the Slow burn and hockey!

    3.5 stars I liked this but man the hero annoyed me for a good part with his adherence to schedule and the blind belief that he was meant to be with his on-again/off-again ex as he was so used to her. I found that insulting to the heroine. But still he does start to loosen up and I started to like him.

    Ahem, it was fine. I feel that the problem is more mine than the book itself. I needed more, but there were parts that really made me laugh and say 'aw' out loud. What I realized with this book, though, is that I'm not a blond-men kind of gal.

    3/5 stars I have really been crunching through the romance book this year. I've honestly read so many, so I feel like my expectations have risen for romance this year. This was a fun, quick and cute read, but it didn't feel like anything exceptionally different. The characters were interesting and loveable, and I adored their romance. It felt light-hearted, sexy and fun. But it was also extremely frustrating. I mean, I just wanted to lock these characters in a room together.

It felt light-hearted, sexy and fun. But it was also extremely frustrating. I mean, I just wanted to lock these characters in a room together. It was one of those instances in which it was so obvious that they loved each other, but they just kept denying it to the point of insanity. I mean, it wasn't devastatingly frustrating or annoying, but it definitely sacrificed the cute/romantic scenes for frustrating fights. Anyway, I still really liked the characters and had a fun time reading this book, so I'm definitely planning to binge this series! If you want a short and sweet book that is fun and addictive, but nothing too out there or special, this is definitely a good one to try.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. 2 stars... The on again and off again ex girlfriend of the hero ruined the story for me.. Marti is mentioned in every chapter that I am actually convinced that she and the hero will be together his constant! I loved meeting Tess with all her awkwardness and factiods but mentioning the ex girlfriend in every chapter as if she is an invisible person between them is pathetic and the grand gesture at the end should be done by Cole and not Tess.

Who knows! I really enjoyed Avery Flynn's other books about the Ice Knights (Tomboy and Parental Guidance), so I was excited to read this new story. You don't really need to read the other two books at all, but the hockey team is the same one. This book is more focused on Cole and Tess and the situation they have gotten into. Tess and Cole are both two people who are very set in their ways. Tess doesn't want anyone to help her because she is so used to them abandoning her. Cole likes to be in control of everything in his life. It was sad to see them be this way, but it was really fun to watch both of them slowly start to let go of their issues. I did like the slow burn thing they had going on, but at times I just wanted to knock their heads together so they would figure it out. I think my favorite part of the novel was Tess' kitten Kahn. Like, first the name is great! Second, he was so evil! I did love that he imprints on Cole so easily. It was so cute! I also did really like all the trivia facts too, and that was how Tess and Cole first bonded. I was disappointed that we didn't get to really know that many details about the sexy times that resulted in the baby, but Flynn makes up for it later in the novel when these two idiots figure out they are attracted to each other. I've read her other books so I wasn't surprised by this, but I do think the illustrated cover may not convey that there are going to be some steamy scenes in this book. Be forewarned if that is not the type of romance book you like. I am partial to them, so more please. I'm really loving this series so far, and I'm excited that there is going to be another one after this one!

    Awk-weird by Avery Flynn is a sexy yet emotional read. This is a romance novel, I can keep re-reading over and over again. The cast of characters is diverse. I loved the humor that spilled on the pages. The bros were all for siding with the leading lady, which I found sweet. Meet Tess, an awk-weird lady who stumbles facts as fast as one can blink. Her facts are random and embarrassingly funny. Like the ones that have to do with pregnancy. Tess kept building an intense cloud until the Thor-like-G Awk-weird by Avery Flynn is a sexy yet emotional read. This is a romance novel, I can keep re-reading over and over again. The cast of characters is diverse. I loved the humor that spilled on the pages. The bros were all for siding with the leading lady, which I found sweet. Meet Tess, an awk-weird lady who stumbles facts as fast as one can blink. Her facts are random and embarrassingly funny. Like the ones that have to do with pregnancy. Tess kept building an intense cloud until the Thor-like-God, Cole, broke her uneasiness. He seems to realize she gets really nervous and blurts our facts. Overtime, her facts are entertaining and expected. Tess's friends are all in love with their own guys. This left Tess awkwardly alone and playing bar trivia with the hockey dudes. This then led Tess to her ultimate journey... Now, meet Cole. He is the Thor-like-God that makes most women melt on spot. The one woman he wanted left him. Six-months and he's still feeling the sting. His ex is nothing like the bright, smart, and sexy girl next-door type. Tess is all that and more. He finds her interesting. Something is burning between them and that led Cole to his life changing goals. He never thought his life would end up like it would. Never thought he would need Tess like the air he breathed. Overall, this book was hot, hilarious, and engaging. I loved the characters. Their quirks made it more than just a story. I received this copy from the publisher. This is my voluntary review.

Cole is a member of the same hockey team that appears in Parental Guidance but that is pretty much where the connection ends. Cole is the nerdy teammate that has a routine and likes things done a certain way on a schedule. Tess is a free spirit that is always waiting for the other shoe to fall. During a wedding the two of them hookup and thanks to defective condoms Tess ends up preggers (this is not a spoiler, the female character on the cover is clearly pregnant). Tess then has some bad luck and moves in with Cole. Cole is also having struggles within his life and the two of them bump around irritating each other. There are so many laughs out loud moments, quirky knowledge bombs, smoking hot sexy times, and super sweet swoony moments that I was sad that this book ended. I had fun reading this and think in the cycle of illustrated covers this one got it right. This specific video review will be included in the October 2019 wrap-up.

    frankly, the first one was okay, nothing out of this world but guys,,, this one right HERE!!!! the chemistry between the main characters was utterly earth-shattering. their scenes were the perfect quantity of sexy, cute, funny and lovely. it was aggravating at several parts, both of them had issues they needed to resolve for them to be together and they kept ignoring that they were mistaken yet when they came to their senses, it was all worth it. easily, 4/5!!

    I don't know why I expected this to be better tbh. There was nothing wrong with the heroine, but the hero... I swear I'm not a violent person, I swear, but what an assh*le, I wanted to punch him since the first moment.
