Received from the author for review.
OK, I have to confess . . . I am a HUGE fan of romantic comedies! Unfortunately, most of the rom-com books are trashy and full of risque scenes. That is why I am so devoted to my LDS fiction. And Melanie Jacobson is the queen of LDS rom-coms!
There is only one word to describe this book--HILARIOUS! I found myself laughing out loud in multiple places (good thing my newborn daughter is a sound sleeper!) It was delightfully funny right from the start. These are just a few of my favorite lines:
If you aren't laughing now, there is something seriously wrong with your funny bone. (My college roommates would have loved that last line; we watched way too many Lifetime movies!) And the whole book is packed with snappy dialogue and hilarious details. Melanie has an amazing ability to turn simple details into hilariously witty antecdotes. For example, I felt like my laughs were the equivalent of verbal golf claps [p. 177]. Seriously, how does she come up with this stuff?!
Along with the hilarious situations and snappy dialogue, there are also plenty of sweet and tender moments between Jessie and Ben. Can I just say, I'm totally in love with Ben (sorry husband!) He is a doll! I love his self-deprecating, confident, witty, and totally laid-back demeanor. The sweet gestures he makes, such as spontaneously dropping off a movie and burger just because Jessie mentions it, turn him into an irresistibly-delicious, (slightly geeky) and endearing hero!
If I were casting the movie of Twitterpated, this is who I would get to play the role of Ben:
James Marsden, 27 Dresses era (his character even reminds me of him a little!)
I loved this book and if you are looking for a cute, light, and laugh-out loud romantic comedy, then you should definitely be reading a Melanie Jacobson novel!

Also, if you enjoy Twitterpated, you need to read Melanie's first two books:
They are just as fun and were both nominated for the 2011 Whitney Awards!
