Second First Impressions Summary
Dazzle (n): Brightness that blinds someone temporarily.
Position Vacant: Two ancient old women residing at Providence Retirement Villa seek male assistant for casual exploitation and good-natured humiliation. Duties include boutique shopping, fast-food fetching, and sincerely rendered flattery. Good looks a bonus—but we aren’t picky.
An advertisement has been placed (again!) by the wealthy and eccentric Parloni Sisters. The salary is generous and the employers are 90 years old, so how hard could the job be? Well, none have lasted longer than a week. Most boys leave in tears.
Ruthie Midona will work in Providence’s front office, and be at the Parloni’s beck and call, forever. That’s sort of her life plan. If Ruthie can run the place in her almost-retired bosses’ absence, with no hijinks/hiccups, she has a shot at becoming the new manager. She might also be able to defend her safe little world from Prescott Development, the new buyer of the prime site. Maybe after all that, she can find a cute guy to date. All she needs to do is stay serious—and that’s what she does best.
Until, one day, someone dazzling blows into town.
Teddy Prescott devotes his life to sleeping, tattooing, and avoiding seriousness. When Teddy needs a place to crash, he makes a deal with his developer dad. Teddy can stay in one of Providence’s on-site maintenance cottages—right next door to an unimpressed Ruthie—but only if he works there and starts to grow up.
Ruthie knows how this sweetly selfish rich boy can earn his keep—and be out of her hair in under a week. After all, there is a position vacant.

I know I’m not alone when I say that this year has greatly impacted my reading. Lately every book I pick up I can’t seem to finish. Life just has too many problems for me to get lost in another world. There are currently 6 books on my shelf that I haven’t finished and when I picked up this one I feared it would join my ever growing pile of books collecting dust.
Boy was wrong. I started this book yesterday morning and I finished it last night around 2 am. I carried it with me all day and read it in every spare moment. It was just what I needed. Reading this book is like catching up with an old friend. It’s funny, it’s real, at times it’s ridiculous, and every single page had me smiling like an idiot.
If your looking for a fun entertaining read this is the book for you. I can’t recommend it enough, will this book change your life? No. Will it fill you with joy and make you laugh to yourself in the middle of the night? Absolutely.
3.0 out of 5 stars I wanted to love it. But I was bored.

Hating Game 5 stars. 99 Percent Mine? 4.5.
I just didn’t love this book. I wanted to. It took to over the 50% point before I could get into it. I noticed several mistakes. Someone self published with a shoestring budget? I get it. Not a traditional published book.
I might not have noticed except Ruthie was so boring. Teddy was a man-child. The end was really rushed and felt a little unresolved. I want spoil by going into specifics.
I won’t pre-order next. But I might still buy the next book.

I almost didn’t want to read this book. The Hating Game is perhaps my all-time favorite book. Ever. I knew this wouldn’t be the same. I had vague disappointment after reading 99% Mine and so I went into this accepting it is not Josh & Lucy and that could be okay. Turns out it was more than okay. No, Ruthie and Teddy are not Josh and Lucy. I had no.sparks,no edge of my seat at their banter. But they were amazingly well written characters that were so fun and likable. Melanie was fantastic. But Renata (& Aggie) stole the show. I loved the outside character development, it absolutely made this book. While the ending was perhaps a little rushed, a certain element also thoughts to tears and books never make me cry. This was absolutely worthwhile and shows what an amazing author Sally Thorne is.
