I love rom-com books. There’s nothing better than sitting down with a book that will make you laugh, gasp and get you hot and bothered, and Floored delivered on all of those and then some. I had a great time reading it and found myself smiling even after I’m was done reading it.
So what is it about?
Erin Upton has always been a good girl but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t indulge in some very naughty fantasy. One night while she was indulging in one of her fantasies, her house was burglarized.
Enter Charlie Dwyer, who is now a police officer. Charlie and Erin grew up next door to each other when they were kids. He was such a little shit back then, tormenting Erin and holding her hamster hostage, so Erin was quite flabbergasted when Charlie grew up to be hot, and worst of all, she’s attracted to him.
And it just wasn’t Erin who was feeling the sparks. Charlie was attracted to her too but he can’t offer anything more than a temporary fling, something that Erin isn’t down for. But as they spent time together, their attraction grew and so is their friendship.
I really liked the chemistry between Charlie and Erin. Their history coupled with their attraction as adults had me turning the pages. Erin was such a character. She’s the epitome of a single woman. She’s smart, funny, and ambitious. She sees her friends pairing up, and while she’s happy for them, she also wants what they have.
Charlie was the perfect foil for Erin’s rigid ways. Their differences are what made their relationship work. And Charlie, despite his statements to the contrary was slowly falling for Erin fast.
Their banter and Erin’s monologue were hilarious. The book was written from Erin’s POV, so the fact that I related to her, made this book a very enjoyable read for me. My only quibble was the conflict was a little ‘meh’ for me. But I did like the way they resolved their issues.
It’s fun, light, and sexy. Readers who are allergic to angst will like Floored as it is very light on the angst and leaning more towards romantic comedy, which I liked very, very much! 😀
