Lovebug by Erin Mallon
How cute is this play on words guys? I was all over this like bees on honey. See what I did there. I can be punny! But for reals this was adorable on the next level. This is a first for me from this author but will certainly to be the last.
This adorable romcom is one that you won't want to put down with adorable character and a plot that is perfection. Truly this is the perfect romcom for spring. I loved the relationships that we got to see develop and the bug plot line with all the little did-you-know moments was perfect.
My name is Mabel, the girl who “wouldn’t hurt a fly.”
Of course I wouldn’t.
I’m an entomologist for goodness’ sake.
I work in a nature center.
Bugs are my jam.
It’s the humans in my life who are starting to get me down. I’m used to them calling me sweet and innocent. I can even handle them calling me naive. But when they lie and keep secrets from me? That's when my proverbial pincers want to come out.
Trouble is, I'm not the girl who fights back.
Not until a handsome groundskeeper with a dirty mouth and secrets of his own shows up and lights all sorts of fires in me.
In the bug world, the female is always the fiercest. The praying mantis doesn’t worry about being a “good girl.” Nope, she follows her instincts no matter how crass or crude they may seem to others.
Turns out I could learn a thing or two from her.
I’m not necessarily looking to tear anyone’s head off, but after decades of being nice, it's high time for me to return to nature and unleash my wild side.
