Summary: Hazel Camille Bradford knows she’s a lot to take—and frankly, most men aren’t up to the challenge. If her army of pets and thrill for the absurd don’t send them running, her lack of filter means she’ll say exactly the wrong thing in a delicate moment. Their loss. She’s a good soul in search of honest fun. Josh Im has known Hazel since college, where her zany playfulness proved completely incompatible with his mellow restraint. From the first night they met—when she gracelessly threw up on his shoes—to when she sent him an unintelligible email while in a post-surgical haze, Josh has always thought of Hazel more as a spectacle than a peer. But now, ten years later, after a cheating girlfriend has turned his life upside down, going out with Hazel is a breath of fresh air. Not that Josh and Hazel date. At least, not each other. Because setting each other up on progressively terrible double blind dates means there’s nothing between them...right?

Review: This book has been raved about by so many people that I decided on purchasing it on my Nook. Holy cow am I glad I did! It was the perfect book to read after finishing a psychological thriller.

I don't think the question is if Hazel and Josh will get together but it's more like when and how. Hazel is a force of nature. She's a whirlwind of life and a bit on the over-the-top side but you really can't help but love her. She's the friend you know who will make you laugh and perhaps make you do some crazy stuff.  Josh is reserved but without being stiff. He's been part of the Hazel tornado and isn't sure them being friends it going to benefit him in anyway. When Hazel is determined you don't have much choice and she wants Josh as her BFF.

What ensues is some really bad blind double dates and the reappearance of an ex. It's apparent that Josh and Hazel have serious chemistry but when do you decide to cross that line and risk it all?

I will not be missing another book this writing duo does in the future and will be getting their backlog from my library as time permits. This one and I suspect their others are pure book candy!
