My Ridiculous, Romantic Obsessions by Becca Wilhite

My Ridiculous, Romantic Obsessions by Becca Wilhite

Synopsis from Goodreads:
Sarah Howard's first year at the university is everything and nothing she expected especially when a very cute boy named Ben in her Art History class starts to show interest in her.

Sarah feels like she's an average, normal, everyday girl. So, when Ben (to whom she secretly refers as Adonis because she thinks he could be a Greek god) begins to take interest in her, Sarah is in denial. For one thing, last year she was deeply crushed and humiliated by Jesse James a guy who she thought liked her.

She's determined not to get burned again. But in her heart of hearts, what she really wants is a Jane Austen kind of romance. Ridiculous, right? That kind of romance doesn t exist anymore . . . or does it? Sarah is smart and fun to be around and even pretty, despite her Medusa-like red curls. She even plays the guitar. (So does Ben!) Yes, Sarah is everything Ben has wanted. He's crazy for her, but Sarah is just not getting it. She's playing hard to get, and if she s not careful, she s going to lose a real hot gentleman -- her 21st-century Mr. Darcy.

My Review:
I enjoyed being in this main character's head.  She was laugh out loud funny.  So many of her thoughts were things that I would have thought as well.
This book at times was a little too sweet.  And sometimes I got tired of hearing how wonderful the love interest was.  And the main character was a little too self-deprecating, although, like I said, I have had many of those same thoughts about myself.
Overall, this was an enjoyable, quick read.  I read it in a day.

Warnings: None

I would let my 14 year old daughter read this book.
