Publisher's Summary

Meet the Trellis family: They're a little bit psychic, a little bit empathic, and completely oblivious to their special gifts. 

Matilda's not your typical damsel in distress. Bold, decisive, and unapologetically disabled, she is a self-employed strategic consultant in the liquor industry. Her reputation for success has landed her a sales opportunity to make a new brand of beer. 

Tall, dark, and handsome, Jake Trellis is ready to play the role of a foul-mouthed Prince Charming. 

When Matilda shows up in his office doorway, late for a sales meeting, dripping wet, partially frozen, and babbling about a mishap, Jake is certain lady-tears are incoming. He was not anticipating getting snarked at and shellacked at eight-ball.

Between Matilda's outrageous BFFs and Jake's hilarious extensive family, this Midwest-based romantic comedy offers inspiration, laughter, and a sneaky bit of psychic, empathic magic. Jake and Matty's journey to love - screeching shrews, slobbering dogs, gifted dildos, unfortunate naughty public encounters, and family antics included - is the start of something bigger.

Contains mature themes.

Just WOW!!

I loved this book! Maggie M Lily is the best. I read this last year and was so impressed by the emotions you feel with the characters. I laughed, cried and loved this book. The audio book just brought it to life.

Hard read

I really wanted to like this book. I enjoyed Maddie until she turned into an insecure whining mess. I didn’t like her best friend at all. She didn’t seem like much of a friend throughout the book. I LOVED the Trellis family and they’re what kept me reading and why I’ll read the second one.

CLIFFHANGER!

But a great cliffhanger! Best book I've read/listened to in a long time. I have a daughter with c.p. her seizures started at age 8. I was so impressed the author wrote a book with the female lead having a disability. My daughters is much more severe but I loved the character in this book. The large family is great as well, I have 5 kids so I understand the craziness that comes with so many people at your house for dinner! I related to a lot of things in this book.
if you enjoy big family dinners and the chaos that comes with large families I promise you will like this story. if u need to laugh I guarantee you will have many opportunities with this story. the narrator also does a great job. stop wondering n get the book, you'll love it!

Good

This story was so different. I'm intrigued and will definitely listen to the next book. I did skip ahead. For me it took way to long to get to the character development. The ending with Sam and Luke explained the middle and I wish, they would have explained that earlier in the story. However, it is that ending that has me interested in the next book, although I suspect the last book will be predicitble.

Good, then slow with whiney hero and heroine, then GREAT ending!

My daughter warned me that the middle was a bit tedious with people’s insecurities but promised that the magic and story picked up. She was right. The book ended with me rushing to download The next book in this series. She also said that Book 2 is REALLY great!

Loved the book, loved the audiobook!

Laugh out loud funny, tears, characters that learn and improve. Lots of foul language and moderate stream. Excellent on all fronts!
