Then she meets Mac in the poetry section of the library, and she is smitten. Mac is heart-stoppingly gorgeous and showers her with affection, poetic text messages, and free hot chocolate at the local café where he works. The only problem is that he seems to be a different person in his texts than in his face-to-face conversation.
When the Franklin Library is threatened with closure, Greta leaps into action. She arranges for a "battle of the bands" book jam, hosts a book signing by a famous author, and finally, stages a protest that raises more than a few eyebrows.
Through it all, she slowly realizes that it is Will, not Mac, who she turns to for support and encouragement. Mac has the looks; Will has the heart. How can she choose between them?
Check Me Out is a contemporary romance--with just a hint of Cyrano de Bergerac--that reminds us that it is what's on the inside that matters most.
- When I heard this was a Cyrano type story at a library, I knew I had to read it. Sadly, I was a little disappointed.
- I didn't like Greta. She was selfish and shallow. It would have been nice if her character had grown a little.
- I didn't like Will either. I wanted to know why he was helping Mac. What were his motives in helping his cousin win over the girl he loved? It never explains. I don't think it was to get the girl.
- I wish Dr. Silver had a more prominent role. He was the most interesting character in the whole story, and nothing really happens with him.
- There were some fun moments, and it was an alright fluff book, but I was hoping for a little more.
