Adam James is a corn-fed, Nebraska raised, piece of man meat with a chiseled body and baby face. He is in desperate need of a paycheck and will do just about anything to get one, including stripping down to his skivvies and lathering up in baby oil. Solo Cohan is a quirky hipster with a strong work ethic,raised by two gay dads who are head over heels in love with Harrison Ford and Star Wars, hence the name, Solo. She works for Teeg Model Management, the same modeling agency that decides to book Adam as their next up and coming model. Sparks ignite between her and Adam the minute her baby oil soaked hand connects with his practically naked body. Even though Solo can’t stop thinking about Adam during photo shoots, she quickly and awkwardly, shows Adam her distaste for male models and her inability to engage romantically with them. Adam is captivated by her nerdy talk and peculiar tendencies and sets out to make it his mission to turn the Star Wars loving hipster to the dark side, where mingling with models is widely arousing.
★★★ 3.5 Stars ★★★
Geeky romances are slowly becoming my thing, I love a nerd and this one was right up my street.
Adam is a down to earth guy, he’s a country boy and likes the simple things in life. When he is in desperate need for cash to help out his mom, he gets a job working as a fitness model with the model agency Teeg Models.
He is completely out of his element, he is not used to being objectified and that’s exactly what happens when he steps into this whole new world of fake parties and being fawned over.
Solo is the social media expert at Teeg Models, she wears cartoon leggings and ninja turtle pj’s and doesn’t care what anyone things of her quirky sense of style. She lives onsite at the models house, and has a strict ‘no models’ rule when it comes to relationships.
Her and Adam hit it off straight away, with Adam needing someone as grounded as she seems to be, and their shared love of Star Wars it’s a match made in heaven. The trouble is, Solo has been hurt before in the past by a model, and so she is very hesitant to trust Adam, even though he has given her no reason not to. She made me wanna give her a slap at times, she was so determined he was going to cheat on her that she couldn’t see what was right in front of her face. Other than that though, she was a great heroine and I thought she was adorable.
I really enjoyed the banter, and I will be very happy if this turns out to be a series because Adam’s fellow model roomates are a interesting bunch of characters as was Solo’s best friend, and the bitchy agency owner Zia.
Slight case of the instalove, but not too much to put me off completely.
I would definitely recommend.
This is a new adult romance, told in dual POV.
ARC gratefully received from the author in exchange for an honest review.

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!
