Sunny Shelly’s Review: Hot Mess by R. Linda



Title: Hot Mess
Series: Messy Love #1
Author: R. Linda
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: May 27, 2019
There’s always that one girl who has all these dreams, yet she can’t reach them because she’s constantly tripping over her own two feet.
That’s me. I’m that girl. The unorganized, chaotic, hot mess.
I’m the struggling artist who refuses to give up my love for pizza just because society constantly shoves thin, perfectly toned bodies in my face saying that’s what women are supposed to look like.
Oh, and I’m filthy rich. On paper anyway. I can’t touch my trust fund just yet, so to get those nasty debt-collectors off my back I rent out the snazzy mansion my parents left me. 
Of course it has to be Tate Montgomery who moves in—the super sexy celebrity with three million, five hundred and twenty-six followers on Instagram. And of course I have to be the paint-covered walking disaster who falls for said famous tenant.
The problem? Tate and I, we’re not compatible…at all. He’s arrogant. I’m stubborn. It’s a train wreck waiting to happen.
Yet, I end up kissing him anyway.
Told you I was a mess.



Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars

Hot Mess was a fun, flirty romcom that I easily read in one day, between my lunch break at work and reading before bed. Tate and Wren are adorable, and it takes a while for them to get together so there’s a nice build-up. Wren was quirky and fun and took no BS from Tate, even if he is a famous model. And the girl has a standing pizza delivery. How could you not love that?

I had some issues with Tate’s faux girlfriend Rachel. As a bigger woman myself, I hate fat-shaming in books. There could have been other ways to make Rachel a royal B without calling Wren names because she had a curvier body. And does the reader ever know what name Rachel had programmed into Tate’s phone for Wren? Did I miss it??

Overall, this was a cute story with zero angst that ends with a HFN. I’ve read some other books by R. Linda before that were misses for me, but Hot Mess was a hot hit. I really liked Wren’s friend Eve, and would love to see her get a story! I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
