Awk-weird Summary

There’s more to me than just being awk-weird. I own my own flower shop, have some great friends, and I have my eye on adopting the most adorable kitten. But sadly, hot guys don’t tend to be blown away by my trivia-spouting, dorky self.

So when a Thor-lookalike who happens to be a professional hockey player hits on me at my bestie’s wedding rehearsal party... You better believe I climbed that tree like a cat. And the fact that it happened not once, not twice, but three times? Yeah, that’s pretty much a once-in-a-lifetime experience for a woman like me.

There’s zero chance I’ll end up ever seeing him again...right?

Until the pregnancy test comes up positive. What happens next?

Oh my God, I wish I knew…

Awkweird3 star

First time reading this author. This could have been a really sweet romcom BUT for the explicit sex scenes every few pages and so many F bombs. Guess that’s what sells books these days since so many authors have decided to write that way. The story really was cute and I liked the characters.35


Amazing5 star

Loved this book so much! Stayed up until 4am reading because I couldn’t put it down. Definitely a must read!!55


Nerdy hockey perfection!5 star

I loved the trivia. I loved the hockey team and her girl gang. I loved the cat (and I'm not a cat person). I loved the voicemails. I loved the story. But most of all, I simply loved Tess and Cole. Romance, sexy times, and just a whole lot of fun! A really great book!55


Laugh out loud fun5 star

A funny addition to the Ice Knights series by Avery Flynn. We first met Tess in the Hartigan series as a shy wallflower. Tess had a tough childhood and her coping mechanism was to try to stay as invisible as possible. When she gets any attention, she starts spewing useless trivia. Tess meets Cole, a hot hockey player, at her friend Lucy’s wedding rehearsal. A couple of drinks and one round of trivia later, Tess and Cole end up getting “weddinged” (a meaningless wedding hookup). Of course, their protected sex wasn’t so protected, and Tess ends up with a bun in the oven. Now Cole and Tess have to figure out how to co-parent. Cole’s OCD life will never be the same. Cole and Tess are a great couple who react to stress in different, often humorous, ways. I love this book and am anxiously waiting for the next book in the series.55

So glad Avery continued the Ice Knights series!5 star

So glad Avery continued the Ice Knights series! After her traumatic and distant childhood, Tess has guarded herself as an adult by being awkward and as invisible as possible. The last to be single out of her group of friends, she is starting to feel lonely and a seventh wheel to the group. At the wedding of one of her friends, she meets Cole and while she’s extremely attracted to him, she focuses on putting no attention on herself. But as fate would have it, they end up competing together against the rest of the crew in trivia, which is her specialty, and they have an epic one-night stand. And as one-night stands go, Tess ends up pregnant. With Cole thinking he’s getting back together with his ex since they have been on and off for years and his reluctance to change, he resigns himself to being involved with Tess for the baby, but still plans to get his life back on track and to normal. But after Tess has some bad luck with her living situation and the pair are somewhat forced together at his home, she inserts herself into his way of life and changes him for the better. But with both of them being resistant to change and being vulnerable, it’s a question on if they will end up happily together. I continue to love Avery’s rom-com storylines and also love that being it’s part of a series we get to see our other favorites from books past and updates on them as well. Can’t wait for the next installment in this series! I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.55


Bigfoot finds a permanent home!5 star

Tess and Cole were pure magic! Just what the other needed! Tess is pure chaos and Cole is pure routine. Their meeting is during a wedding where they have a one night stand with a surprise baby. What will Tess and the baby do to Cole’s routine? Can Tess find more than the temporary home she has always had in the past? Will Bigfoot find his place in their home? This book is filled with lots of laughter along with a kitten with a penchant for toilet paper! I really enjoyed ready this book! It left me with a smile on my face!55


Great Rom-Com!!4 star

Cole and Tess were so much fun to get to know! Tess’ ability to remember random trivia was awesome and I thought it was great that Cole was able to come back with his own trivia knowledge. But, Tess also touched my heart with her attitude that everything is temporary. Cole on the other hand, I wanted to strangle him at times. His OCD regarding chaos drove me nuts! LOL!! I did love that his heart was in the right place when it came to Tess. Somebody needed to show her that not EVERYTHING is temporary. Looking for a fun, sexy read with a great HEA this is your kind of romance.45


Adorable, Sweet & Funny!5 star

Big win for this new RomCom from the very funny and talented Avery Flynn. What a charming, adorable, funny, sweet, sexy and yup at times awk-ward/weird story! I absolutely loved everything about it!! Tess & Cole (aka Thor's twin) are so amazing together and I just love their characters so much. Their chemistry is off the charts! After their awkward meeting during trivia at a wedding, one steamy thing leads to another and life altering consequences follow. Tess is awesome, she is so quirky and awkward and just so lovable. Cole is a hot, sexy hockey player and is pretty smart except for his on again off again relationship that he can't seem to let go in order to see what is right in front of him. Neither of them is keen on relationships but they are both on board with the pregnancy, so there is that little problem to overcome. But they really do fit together perfectly and complement each other in so many ways; all they need to do is see it for themselves and work out their own stuff so they can be the couple/family they are meant to be. I definitely fell in love with this couple and their story!55

Love this series!5 star

Oh how I love this world that Ms. Flynn has created!
This is the awk-weird story of Tess and Cole.  An awkward meeting over a trivia game, random facts spouting and a hella hot hookup.
Tess is just precious.  I could sympathize with her go-to reaction of spewing out random facts.  I wanted to hug her hard after reading about her past and how she was shuffled along.  I too know how it is to make yourself small, to disappear into the wall to not make waves.
Cole, oh this hot mess of a man.  Such a stickler for consistency, but that is his "safe" place. I did want to shake him hard about his stubbornness with Marti, I mean come on! See what is in front of you!
Tess and Cole have sparks galore, but they also have insecurities and vulnerabilities that almost wreck their relationship.
With hilarious secondary characters and a spawn of satan cat, this story is one you won't be able to put down until the very end!
