Romantic Comedy | New Adult | College Romance
FIRST THOUGHTS: Kristy Marie had me rolling on the floor laughing with this one! I felt like Ainsley was my “spirit animal” and watching her slowly break down the grump was hilarious.
IOU is the first book I’ve read from Kristy Marie. It’s a laugh out loud romantic comedy, and readers are going to be giggling the whole way through! I’m always on the lookout for new romcom authors to read and if Kristy writes more books like this one, I’ll be a forever reader. This book was insanely funny, and the romance that buds between the brooding bad boy and his new, slightly eccentric roommate was refreshing! I’ve read the roommate trope time and again but this one had a unique spin. I adored it to pieces!
Ainsley is… Quirky. She’s got big old lady balls too and isn’t afraid to speak what’s on her mind. Her character is easy to connect with, and certainly the type of person anyone would want to be friends with. So, seeing her slowly break down Maverick’s walls was priceless.
Maverick is Ainsley’s polar opposite. He’s a bit mysterious (as we watch his walls break down from Ainsley, we get to know him at the same time as she does), a bit broody, and 100% alpha. He has no intention of finding love, especially with his brand-new roommate who doesn’t seem to fear him like he would hope and would rather brood in silence (life seems to be easier for him that way). But when he meets his match everything he thought to be true about love goes down the drain. Watching these two banter and slowly fall for one another is PERFECT.
One thing I wanted a little more from with this story is more information on Maverick’s health issues. There are a few moments where they seem to be BIG issues, but nothing is wrapped up with it. I didn’t need something big and dramatic and I’m actually glad Kristy didn’t make a big show of it, but a little more closure with it would have been helpful. As I reader, I want to know EVERYTHING about the characters I connect with and this was the only thing I felt lacking.
IOU is a refreshing romantic comedy and readers who want a good laugh should pick up this book! The characters are wonderful, the plot is fun, and the way the story unfolds is excellent! I can’t wait to see what Kristy brings with her next characters and I look forward to their stories!
