The Chronicles of Moxie by Z. B. Heller
Posted by brriske
Moxie Summers is a curvy, twenty-six year-old teacher who has not had the best track record with relationships. In a drunken stupor at a bar, she meets Miles who turns out to be her sparing equal, until she vomits all over his shoes. Just when she thinks things couldn’t get worse, her dream man turns out to be the single father of the newest student in her class.
While fighting an attraction for Miles, Moxie’s conniving stepmother tries to advise Moxie she needs to get in shape if she’s ever going to catch the man of her dreams. To make matters worse a Girl Scout plans Moxie’s demise, a surprise party makes everyone blush, and then there was the skunk…
Can Moxie overcome all the Girl Scout cookies, food poisoning and a showdown at Costco to get to Miles?
Due to the hot, steamy scenes and Moxie’s filthy mouth this book is intended for 18+
Moxie is like many women, constantly aware of her size and always feeling self conscious even though she puts forth a strong exterior. She does her best not to let anyone know her insecurities and uses humor as a way of deflection.
Miles is a widower with a young child. He is resilient and ready to love again. He oozes sex appeal not only in his looks, but in his flirtations.
What can I say, all in all it is a great little story. I got annoyed with all the different ways she references the male goodies, but overall her cocky wit was funny. I wish more men were like Miles and could hang with a woman like this instead of going for those shallow twits. I hope the next book has a little less of the two of them second guessing each other so they can get to some real love and romance, maybe even a little more kink.
The Chronicles of Moxie is Z.B. Heller’s debut novel.
