Author Gia Riley has been in love with writing romance since high school when she took her very first creative writing class. From the small but mighty state of Delaware, she’s a country girl at heart, traveling back to her roots in Pennsylvania as often as she can.
While New Adult and Contemporary romance have been her passion, she’s dabbled with more erotic plotlines lately, enjoying discovering the sexier side of love with each story she pens. After all, she’s a lover of all things romance – a firm believer that everyone deserves their
happily ever after no matter what it takes to get there.
When she’s not writing, you can find her roaming the aisles of Kirkland’s, up to her elbows in Play-doh, or trying to hunt down spoilers for her favorite reality television show.
I had extremely high hopes for Kiss Me, Stupid. When I read the blurb for Kiss Me, Stupid, I knew I had to have this in my hands ASAP, but in all honestly I am disappointed. I don't know if it is because my hopes were set so high or not. I honestly loved how Wirth and Chandler met. It felt real and authentic, but after that it was just okay for me. For the most part, I feel like this book was juvenile, considering both the main characters were in their twenties. The whole plot was overrated in in my opinion. It felt petty, especially because it was the plot was over something that happens when you are in high school. Not saying some shouldn't have certain feelings about the situation, because they should. Not only that, for the plot to be the main idea of this story, it was like everything was a-okay after a night thinking it over. Like if you blow up about the situation like so, why would you allow something to happen afterword? Clearly feelings wasn't hurt as bad as they were mentioned. I mean literally the book spans over a short period of time, so there really was not a chance for character development either. I really wish I could give a higher rating, but this book just wasn't for me. I hope to try something else from this author, because I do not want to base my opinion of her over just one book.
Chandler. Such a different name for a lead female character, but I love it. She is one for crazy rituals. Her mind is different than most. She is just an anxious person, with many personable traits. She is kind of introverted in some ways considering her job.
Wirth. Another different name, but it fits his personality. He reminds me of a social butterfly. There is not many people he trusts, but he is outgoing, and pretty much gets along with everyone. This guy is one, that is not afraid of his emotions, and will face them head on.
All it takes is one flight, with two strangers sitting next to each other, for fate to step into play.
