⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Hysterical and ridiculous

The Event (The Creek Water Series, #1)

With a plot that’s equal parts ludicrous and hysterical, it’s hard not to enjoy this romantic comedy. It was most certainly never boring, and constantly keeping me on my toes. Well written and told exclusively from the heroine’s perspective, the reader is left guessing about our hero’s true intentions. Sure, there were a few things I didn’t love, but the story definitely held my interest from start to finish.

The story follows Emmie, a woman who has a work incident so embarrassing it can only be described as “The Event.” She goes out and gets drunk on tequila, waking up in a stranger’s bed with few memories of the night before. What she does know is that she’s now pregnant and unable to locate the father. After she’s let go from work, she moves back home to raise her baby. But her small town has some judgmental individuals, so her family makes up a story about the baby’s father and she plays along. Emmie keeps running into Zach, a guy she knew back in high school, who seems torn between being pissed at her and wanting her. As they spend more time together, Emmie still isn’t sure of Zach’s motives, but she does know that her own attraction to him refuses to go away.

I really liked the light-hearted, funny tone of the book. There’s a lot going on that seems a little too out there to be true, and not having Zach’s side of the story leads the reader to make a lot of assumptions. But I caught myself smiling or laughing many times throughout the story, and it seemed to fly by. There’s no explicit sex, but definitely some chemistry between Zach and Emmie. All in all, if you’re looking for a romantic comedy that doesn’t hold back on the humor, this is certainly worth a read. I received a free copy via Hidden Gems and am voluntarily leaving a review of this hysterical book.
