Welcome back to the KU Sunday Spotlight, brought to you by KU Book Reviews + the One-Click Addict Support Group, where the romance is crazy, the feels are over-the-top, and the laughs are a-waitin’. Well, for this week, anyway . . .
RATING: READ IT
His shoulders could’ve been sculpted by a master. His abs are an ode to beauty.
Even his belly button looks like it could chomp a car in half.
If I told you that that was the most . . . traditional quote of all that I highlighted in Pippa Grant’s The Pilot and the Puck-Up, it might give you some semblance of how refreshingly off-the-wall this book is.
It’s over-the-top, ridiculous, chock full of curse words you won’t hear anywhere else, zany jokes and out-there references, and has a cast of characters that make quirky look like a Sunday School Teacher.
It’s also really quite fun. It took me a beat or two to get into Zeus + Joey’s story—there were times when I’ll admit to some less-than-flattering thoughts about Fireball—but once I was in, I devoured this book.
The Pilot and the Puck-Up is the first book I’ve read by Ms. Grant and is most definitely rom-com that’s heavier on the com than the rom. And yet, it still makes time for feels and swoons. It’s not traditional romance by any means, though it has its moments, and honestly, it’s all the better for it.
Looking for an out-of-this-world experience? Something that’ll make you smirk and cringe and giggle and, sometimes, cuss? Grab this book. It takes quirky to a new level and I’m guessing your TBR needs that as much as mine did.
“Can I eat your boobs?”
“I’ll fucking kill you if you don’t.”
“That’s the hottest thing a woman has ever said to me.”
