Publisher's Summary

One night and my life completely jumped the tracks. Actually, a pack of expired condoms did that - the rest of the night was pretty amazing. Open bar at a friend's wedding. Bad dancing all around. Stupid trivia bets with my fellow Ice Knights hockey teammates. And Tess Gardner. The factoid-blurting, fandom-T-shirt-wearing, no-I-don’t-want-a-relationship-with-you woman makes me forget for one night that I’m a man with a routine and my future all mapped out. Still, it sucked she left our room without giving me her number. 

Fast-forward to when she tracks me down and tells me I'm going to be a daddy. Jaw, meet floor. Now I've insisted that she and our little peach pit move in with me after her apartment floods. She agrees as long as there’s no funny business, no shotgun weddings, and no more nights spent naked together. Sounds easy enough. I was prepared for the late-night runs for more pickles and peanut butter, but I wasn’t prepared for Tess. She’s like a glitter rainbow sparkling in the middle of my all-neutrals house, messing up my rigid schedule and turning my world upside down. What the hell do we do next?

Adorkably brilliant!

AWK-WEIRD is perfectly titled. I instantly loved Tess and her amazingly unique personality. Cole is also weird, which is wonderful! Nobody is perfect, but life is all about finding someone who complements your weirdness. This book nails that connection. Add some self doubt, stubborn characters hell bent on protecting themselves my NOT changing anything and then sprinkle in some serious connections on a soul-bending level with some delicious sexual tension and you get something wonderful. I listened to this on audible and loved every moment. Tim and Kelsey are excellent and I will definitely listen to more of their work. Definitely worth the credit. Sweet, dorky, sexy, wonderful!

meh

I've really enjoyed this author in the past but this book packed sparkle, instead it felt pumped out and relied too much in basic room com tropes and specific ones to this group of friends. by the end, I felt like the h wasn't worth rooting for and the H was only slightly better. this is not up to the Lucy and Frankie caliber

Awk-weird

I was so looking forward to this book as the culmination of Gina, Lucy, Fallon, and finally Tess's story. The narration for the others was all done by the same narrators so I didn't think too much of it when narrators were switched out. It was so distracting that I couldn't concentrate on the story . It sounded so FAST, nasally and high pitched. I tried slowing down from 1 to .75 but that was too slow. Maybe it was just me... but I would suggest sampling and then sample again before purchasing.

One of the best audios I've EVER listened to!

Have you ever listened or read a book that you identified with the characters so much? Well, this was it for me. This book was exactly what I needed to listen to. Tess and Cole have an unconventional start to their relationship. Then poof! There is a surprise pregnancy to complicate matters. They both fight their attraction and feelings for each other that it hurts. This book seriously had it ALL. Comedy, hot guys playing hockey, hilarious animal and HOT scenes. Tim Paige has quickly become one of my top narrators and he does an amazing job on this book. Him and Kelsey have a great combination of voices that lend so well together. Kelsey is always amazing and captures the spirit of Tess perfectly. I really can't say enough amazing things about this book. Now I want a kitty named Khan too! Thank you Avery for writing a book about awkward characters. As a seriously awkward person myself, this book seriously hit home for me. And thank you to Tim and Kelsey for bringing it to life. HIGHLY recommend.

Fun. starts strong

I rather enjoyed the first half of the book. Despite not being a fan of failed condom plot plots, this one wasn’t terrible. We have two trivia fans with chemistry and some coping mechanisms that are becoming more hinderance than help. Wedding hookup with complication. The problem is, that’s the whole plot. After the very well handled “this baby is happening” scenes, things bop along well enough for a while. Two people like each other and have great sex, but keep convincing themselves to part ways despite a baby on the way and no real need to part ways. Halfway through, the push-pull with the coping mechanisms stagnates. The issues recycle a couple times without moving forward. It’s intensely shallow and without nuance. It makes for a breezy read, but I wanted an actual discussion about the ex. I wanted a path for not-Thor’s OCD to not go away, but be accommodated since she already knew it was, in many ways, helpful to him. Her issue, while deep seated, needed a less complex solution and got it, but only after beating her head against the same wall and not discussing it a few times. More discussion would have helped and added depth. I don’t really understand why they work. He has drunken rebound sex and… somehow she’s the one? I mean, she’s fine and all but he is an athlete who makes (presumably) millions of dollars and would be draped in available women but somehow doesn’t date. It’s just too simple. The friendships are the best part of the book. Both main characters have good friends who provide good advice and come to their aid and hang out and joke with them. The cat, Khan!, is enough of a character to be worth including, but if he’s still bitey when the baby comes, that’s unsafe. We don’t find out beyond an expectation that’s he’ll outgrow biting. Steam: Medium-low M/F. Starts off page, moves on page. There are a couple hot scenes but nothing particularly spicy. I never really understood how this guy who doesn’t date at all, even platonically, for months st a time outside the ex, got good at sex if he’s a basic guy who doesn’t like variety or trying new things. Narration: well done. good quality.

Very funny!💜

I loved this story! Charming and witty, but more than that it has heart!! This fun-filled RomCom will have you laughing out loud!! The ramblings of random facts are hilarious!! The narration was amazing! Kelsey was wonderful as always. This is my first Tim Paige book and he was absolutely perfect. They both really brought these characters to life. I highly recommend this book!! Sisters Spotlight 💜

ok story, but calling this a romantic comedy is a

I personally don't feel that this book, or any that I have listend to By this author should be in the romantic comedy category. There's not really much laughter and the girls are so stupid and act so ridiculous that I can't make myself listen to another story even though I really want to know about the other men in the series. I am also so over how the author also makes out the male lead to be the bag guy when it's always the girls being dumb and using their bs to push the man away.

Why is the blame always on the guy?

I was dreading the ending of this book and not in a good way. Based on the patterns of the author from her other books, everything is always the guys fault. I was sick of the men always having to be the ones in the wrong. I got Tess' issues, but hated how everything still spiraled into him having to do everything to make it up to her.

A Fun Romance

This is a fun and laugh out loud romance that hits the spot. Nothing to angsty or emotional just a good, clean fun romance with an adorable kitten name Khan:)

Really? These two?

Tess and her Thor look alike, Cole, couldn’t be more opposite! Coke has his routine everyday with no exceptions including breaking up and getting back together again with his ex Marti. Tess is a go with the flow type because she knows things are temporary. By the end of this book I really hated that word. Temporary is how Tess has lived most of her life. Her upbringing was a result of that. I wanted to hug her so bad and tell her life isn’t that way. But she developed her own family by choice. Cole and Tess got weddinged. They were in the same place at the same time with a very strong attraction to each other. As the cover suggests, they really got weddinged. How they react to the story made me laugh and swoon and want to bang their heads together. Cole’s carefully crafted routine will come into question throughout this book and I couldn’t be prouder of the man he becomes. Loved this story. Loved these characters. Loved how the narration made them come to life.

Strong start

This is one of those books I have found browsing through and then had to wait a long time till finding again. Wanted a giggle fest, Am let down sadly, the beginning of the story is good, but then ... Other people have said it here better.
