The Sexy Nerd's Review. . .
One day I was perusing Goodreads and Amazon for books I might be interested in reading. For some odd reason, this book kept coming up on my radar. It was one of those “because you read, blah, blah, blah, you might try this” speech. Immediately I’m thinking this isn’t the type of book I’d normally read, but what the hell. It’s a book and why not. Let me tell you something, I was shocked at how good this book was. I absolutely loved it!
What first grabbed me was the cover and then the title. I love diaries. I’ve been keeping diaries and journals throughout every phase of my life and it’s so awesome to go back and see where my mindset was at those ages and to see how much I’ve matured as a woman. It’s my true safe space for me to be me, so when I read the synopsis of this book, I was already sold.
Tye Gates was a newly entrepreneur living the life along side his best friend who was co-owner. Life couldn’t get any better for Tye. He was celebrating with his fiancé, family and friends. Even though life was good for Tye, he had a weakness. Women!
He saw one of the most beautiful woman he had ever laid eyes upon and he just had to have her. The two struck up a conversation and the next thing you know, they’re in a back alley getting it on. Once their brief sexual encounter was over, the mystery woman excused herself to go find a bathroom and promised she’d be right back. Tye sat and sat and sat waiting for this woman and she never returned. He took her purse and left it in the alley and got back in his car and headed back to his restaurant before his fiancé realized he was gone for too long.
When he checks his car to make sure there wasn’t any evidence of what he had done, he noticed a book lying on the floor. He picks it up and thumbs through and immediately realizes the woman he just sexed up left a diary behind. In any other story, this might not have worked, but Tye was an avid reader so having this diary was a true gift.
Once he got time to sit and begin reading it, the story of the woman inside had him so spent, he couldn’t get enough. His every waking thought was of the woman who described herself as ugly. He wanted to know her.
Suffice to say, the diary became a wedge between Tye’s reality and what he wanted to imagine were possibilities. As the reader continues on Tye’s journey, what soon becomes apparent is that the more Tye read about this ugly woman, there were things that felt too familiar, and he wasn’t sure as to why?
OMG! I could not get enough of this book! I’ve never read this author before, but she truly held my interest and captivated me. Wow! What a fun story to read and it was refreshing having the protagonist be male and a reader. That’s not something you read about all the time.
The Sexy Nerd gives An Ugly Girl’s Diary five additional pages to continue writing her story. This story is short and hot. The characters were fire! 🔥🔥🔥 If you’re looking for something different, try reading something different. Often times we find ourselves in a rut with the current genre we're reading. We need to switch it up sometimes. And the moment I did that, I landed on this jewel. Try it, you just may like it and find a new author to enjoy. I know I did. This book is it! Until next time, Nerds, you know what to do! 😉
