What do ice cream and Sadie Montgomery have in common? They’re both ice cold, but one taste is never enough.
I wanted to be friends — I would have even settled for her seeing me as anything but a nerd — but there was no getting through. So just like any hard-headed, red-blooded man out there, I made up my mind.
I’d make my coworker fall for me.
I’d like to say it was simple, but like every other epic love story, all it took was one drunken night and a lot of naked courage to get the girl. For a moment, at least.
Love with a coworker is never simple, especially since Sadie’s trying to keep us on the low. Not to mention her persistent ex-boyfriend who won’t leave her alone. But I’ve never been good at giving up, and I don’t plan to start now.
The whole thing is a recipe for a rocky road, but I plan to eat the whole gallon, no matter how bad the brain freeze.
Knowing I will probably regret this, I lift from the freezer, ice cream scraper in hand, and jerk toward Sadie just in time to slip on some melted ice on the floor shooting me across the fountain and straight into Sadie.
But not just Sadie; straight into her chest—her billowing, womanly chest. It’s a satisfyingly soft cushion for my head but from her instant outrage, I’m going to guess she’s not keen on me using her breasts as a pillow.
“What the hell are you doing?” she asks, trying to back away, difficult when I’ve got her pinned against the counter.
Fumbling to get some kind of grasp on my falling body, scraper still in hand, I give her a bit of motor boat—not on purpose—and muffle in her breasts, “I’m sowwy.”
“Get off me.”
“I’m twying,” I say, finally getting a grip on the counter behind her and standing tall. Glasses askew, hat on the floor, and a smothered feeling on my face, I straighten my apron and clear my throat. “My apologies.” Her friend is laughing, hand on her stomach, as I push my glasses back on my nose. “Although, I’m grateful for your sturdy bosom for catching my fall. It might have been a twisty straw to the eye, and I’m not sure my glasses would have held up on such an impact.”
Sturdy bosom? Shit, Andrew, don’t fucking say words like bosom. And for the love of God, don’t say a woman has a STURDY bosom. Say words like tits. Tits are more manly.
“Tits,” I mutter.
“Excuse me?” Sadie has the look of horror on her face.
Fuck, did I say that out loud?
“I think he said tits, Sadie,” her friend cuts in, thumbing through the straw holder. Yup, I said tits out loud.
“I heard him, Smills,” Sadie mutters under her breath.
Glaring at me, looking for an answer, I shrug my shoulders, because I have nothing. No way of digging myself out of this one. Funny how your brain can literally stop working the minute you need it the most. Come on, old fella, kick it into high gear. Come up with something witty, something snarky, something that will put a Band-Aid over this rather raw and embarrassing incident.
But, good fuck. I just had my face in her chest. What man could come back quickly from that?
“Well . . .” Sadie has her arms crossed over her bosom, waiting for an answer. No. Her arms are crossed over her breasts. Shit. Shit.
Nerves crawl up the back of my neck, igniting my ears into lava levels of heat. Crap. Just say anything.
Clearing my throat, I pat her shoulder and say, “Sturdy tits.”
And here I thought it couldn’t get any worse, at least my hand didn’t pat down her breast to see if her nipples were made of steel, or to see if her areolas consist of chain-link mesh. You have to look at the positive.

This is the second book I have read by author Meghan Quinn. Co-Wrecker is the fun, light-hearted story of Andrew and Sadie.
Andrew has just transferred to Binghamton University to get away from his “ordeal” at his previous university. He is the witty, hot looking nerd and he is funny too. To keep himself busy and earn some money before school starts he decided to get a job at “Friendly’s” as a fountain boy and this is where he meets Sadie, his co-worker. Sadie’s character is quite moody and a bit standoffish. She has a close group of friends who we get to meet later in the story.
I like the author’s style of writing. Reading Andrew and Sadie’s banter throughout the whole book made me laugh, snort and giggle at some parts. Their first encounter especially reminds me of a Mr. Bean moment and ends up with Andrew giving Sadie the nickname Sturdy Tits.
All through the first half of the book we can see Sadie’s slowly thawing icy demeanour towards Andrew. How can she not fall for this cute nerd who looks like Ryan Reynolds with a mind like Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory and apparently is also well endowed. He is all that and more!
Not everything is hunky dory for our heroine, Sadie. Her being aloof and closed-in stems from a sad childhood and a recent tragic event which leads her into keeping a lot of secrets from her friends and family. Her ex-boyfriend Tucker is part of her close circle of friends and he still carries a torch for her albeit one that Sadie is dying to extinguish when she gets involved with Andrew.
But when the basis of a new relationship is founded in lies, will it last or will it crumble? She needs to fess up fast or she might lose him. Is she brave enough to tell him the whole sad story? She needs to pull up her big girl pants or there will be no more walking-like-a-duck-the-morning-after courtesy of Mr. Cannon Cock.
Fluctuating body temperatures, that’s what you get when you read Andrew and Sadie’s story. Ice cream sundaes, steamy sex scenes and a funny love story. The first can give you brain freeze, the second makes you hot and bothered and the last will warm your heart.
I would have gladly given this story five stars but that darn childhood tale of the fat dog (I won’t go into details why) makes this a four star read from me.

A BLONDE AT HEART
Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.
Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.
Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!
