Settling Up by Eryn Scott
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is my type of rom-com, I found the inner musings of neurotic Lauren, um...er... amusing! If a book can make me laugh out loud, I know it's something special and this book has many of those such moments!
30 something mathematician Lauren has a list for absolutely everything, a list of where she should be monetary wise, a list of where she should be career wise, and an extreme vetting list for prospective husbands! It's no wonder the stress of it all has caused her to start losing her hair, it's enough to make me want to pull mine out!
Lauren usually talks out her problems at the blackjack table of the local casino, but when her regular dealer is a no show, she starts up an unlikely platonic relationship with the tattooed new dealer Mack, it has to be a platonic relationship, because Mack has absolutely zero of the requirements on Lauren onerous list.
Instead, Lauren's relegates Mack to the infamous "friend zone" and uses Mack, a recent widow, as a sounding board for her dating life and in the process they start to share parts of their life outside of the casino, in essence becoming BFF's. When Lauren thinks she's found her perfect match on paper, she starts to question if perfection is what she's looking for, can Lauren look past her list and see the perfect fit in front of her?
Great story? Check! Great narration? Check! This book is awesome, start to finish!
