Rory is such a nerd, but of course has that heart of gold. She is definitely the underdog, and don't we all root for the underdog. I think all can find a bit of us in Rory. So yeah Rory is a nerd, and hey why not have Rory a a Star Wars geek! There are quite a bit of Star Wars references, it didnt bother me and i'm not a Star Wars fan, infact, I don't think I've watched the whole movie before. Hunter is dreamy. I love that he's mature, but also flawed. He still stereotypes, but is growing as a person, and Rory is a big reason for his growth.
Secondly, there relationship had me giggling like a school girl. I love stories of love that feature two people who are complete opposites. So not only was I giggling, but I was laughing too. Yes, the story is predictable but you read the last page with a smile, and are completely satisfied at it's ending. I remember reading this book in record time. I was that glued to Rory and Hunter!
Yuck! The only reason why I touched this book was because I read someone else saying so many good things about it. I don't care for Star Wars in general, and all the references to it were just plain annoying, not cute, funny, or anything otherwise. There wasn't anything special about the storyline, you could tell the way it would end from the beginning of it. Learn from my experience, and SKIP IT!
I really loved this book, gave it five stars. It's excellent, sweet chick lit (a step up from the usual drug-binging, bed-hopping lead characters we usually see). It's about a nerdish girl who gets a second chance with her high-school (and elementary!) long time love. The thing is, the title threw me off. I thought it might be a dating memoir like "Dating Amy"- basically a recount of all the bad dates a girl got to before she hit "the one." It's not at all! There is NO dating in the book but for the girl's current boyfriend and her dream man. It's NOT a dating memoir, it's just fiction. If you're at all into Star Wars, you'll love the main character. It was neat to see a female portrayed so into the Sci-Fi. You'll love her for her quirkiness, funny family, and the things she experiences. (SPOILER) It has your typical chick-lit happy ending, but was a really fast read, and I find myself wishing the author would make a sequel about this fun, interesting character!
Rory Egglehoff is looking for her knight, but she seems to attract only nerds...until Hunter Chase touches down in the office next door.
Her high-school crush and quintessential dream man, Hunter sends Rory's pulse into hyperdrive. Now all she needs is to get gorgeous Hunter to notice her, take her to their high school reunion, and pledge his undying love.
But putting the Ultimate Jedi Plan into play is harder than it sounds. An unfortunate incident at the gym,a family straight out of "The X-Files," and some seriously suspicious pizza toppings all conspire to send her plan spinning outrageously out of control. And for one would-be princess, confronting the Dark Side is child's play compared with landing the perfect hero...
