Peek Inside Awk-Weird

There’s more to me than just being awk-weird. I own my own flower shop, have some great friends, and I have my eye on adopting the most adorable kitten. But sadly, hot guys don’t tend to be blown away by my trivia-spouting, dorky self.

So when a Thor-lookalike who happens to be a professional hockey player hits on me at my bestie’s wedding rehearsal party... You better believe I climbed that tree like a cat. And the fact that it happened not once, not twice, but three times? Yeah, that’s pretty much a once-in-a-lifetime experience for a woman like me.

There’s zero chance I’ll end up ever seeing him again...right?

Until the pregnancy test comes up positive. What happens next?

Oh my God, I wish I knew…

I really enjoyed getting to know Tess and Cole. They came together pretty fast and resisted the fall as best they could but they fell together naturally in the end, as they were meant to be.

Cole was stubborn and resistant to change. Tess was smart but apprehensive. For some reason, these two worked ...more

By Sentranced October 08, 2019

The title of the book is absolutely spot on. Awk-weird is adorably awkward and weird.

Awk-weird was the perfect romcom. I couldn’t stop the smile on my face the entire time I was reading this book. It’s sweet and funny with the perfect dollop of charm and captivating chemistry.

I have a mixed feeling about this book, and I can't seem to decide what rating should I give the book.
3,4 or 5 Stars

I made the mistake of starting this series without knowing there is another series that I should have started with before the one that I'm currently reading. I was so confused with th ...more

By Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews October 15, 2019

So, you gotta love the way Avery Flynn writes a RomCom. She knows how to make you laugh and have a good time while you root for the underdog and hope for true love. Tess and Cole were absolutely wonderful together. Weirdness times two just made this story special.

Tess was a riot right from the begin ...more

***Review can also be found at Jackie's Book World. :)***

Not having read other books by Avery Flynn before, I didn’t know what to expect before reading Awk - Weird. Needless to say, I was really impressed with the story and how well Flynn managed to develop the characters from beginning to end. The ...more

By sXe Punk Girl August 27, 2020

Five stars. Awk-weird the second in the Ice Knights Series, I found to be a hilarious must-read filled romp-com. I immensely enjoyed the characters of Tess and Cole (had a specific hockey player in mind while reading the book) far more than Zara and Caleb from book one Parental Guidance. Full review ...more

By TheEuphoricZat July 03, 2020

I think I need to say that I have a thing for books that include one of the characters getting pregnant. It is just my weird thing.
Tess has always been the weird (honestly in my opinion intelligent) girl who spews facts and trivia when she is uncomfortable or doesn't know what to do in an awkward si ...more

By Lindsay October 20, 2019

Florist Tess Gardner is the weird reserved one of the friendship group we've been following in this series. At the wedding of Frankie and Lucy (from Muffin Top), Tess gets "weddinged" with Ice Knights player Cole Phillips. They're both happy for it to have been a one-night thing, but Tess turns up p ...more

By Siobhan February 13, 2020

Awk-Weird is the second book in Avery Flynn’s Ice Knights series, but it works perfectly fine as a standalone novel. It also links in with The Hartigans, where we first met our leading lady. Whether you’re new to either series or have followed the progression of both, this is an addictive read.

As al ...more

By ❅ Karen ❅ July 02, 2020

This is a book I probably would have never picked up but I LOVED IT. It was like playing a movie in my head that I didn't want to end. I'm such a hopeless romantic that it was perfect for me! I didn't mind the point of view but sometimes it confused me. Also, it had too many sex details. I'm sure ot ...more

More like a 3.5 but I did enjoy this enough for a bit of a bump. ...more

By Jessica October 14, 2019

I’m not gonna lie, most of the time Avery is a hit or miss and I never really know which way it’s gonna go. So I read most of her books LOL because even when they’re a miss, they don’t miss out of the park. This was a hit!

If there’s one thing I know that Avery can do well is quirky. As soon as ...more

By 1-Click Addict Support Group October 27, 2019

At first sight you'd think Cole Phillips and Tess Gardner being very different- yet the more I read the more I realized they were somewhat the same but in different ways-if that makes sense. They were both quirky in their own unique way. And Tess's random facts about nothing and everything had me la ...more

By Maria Rose January 05, 2020

This was a fun read! Some trope-y goodness ( one night stand leads to unexpected pregnancy), interesting and likable characters, hockey bits and a sexy romance. Tess is definitely a spontaneous and quirky woman and she puts a dent in Cole's orderly life - they are definitely a case of opposites attr ...more

By dani October 14, 2019

frankly, the first one was okay, nothing out of this world but guys,,, this one right HERE!!!! the chemistry between the main characters was utterly earth-shattering. their scenes were the perfect quantity of sexy, cute, funny and lovely.
it was aggravating at several parts, both of them had issues t ...more

By Cassidy (cassidyreads) October 15, 2019

Slow burn and hockey! This book follows Tess, she is the definition of quirky and awkward (hence the title😃) she also loves to read and she owns her own flower shop. Cole, or should I say thor, is the hot hockey player who needs routines and everything to go as planned. Cole and Tess are what you wo ...more

3.5 stars
I liked this but man the hero annoyed me for a good part with his adherence to schedule and the blind belief that he was meant to be with his on-again/off-again ex as he was so used to her. I found that insulting to the heroine. But still he does start to loosen up and I started to like him ...more

This review was originally posted on my review blog Deanna Reads Books

I keep on saying that I don't really like "accidental baby" romances, but I keep on reading them so maybe I am a liar. Who knows! I really enjoyed Avery Flynn's other books about the Ice Knights (Tomboy and Parental Guidance), so ...more

By Danielle November 19, 2019

Awk-weird by Avery Flynn is a sexy yet emotional read. This is a romance novel, I can keep re-reading over and over again. The cast of characters is diverse. I loved the humor that spilled on the pages. The bros were all for siding with the leading lady, which I found sweet.

4.5 Stars / 5 Steam Fans

I thought I was getting a couple that was directly related to the first book in the Ice Knights series but oh was I wrong. Cole is a member of the same hockey team that appears in Parental Guidance but that is pretty much where the connection ends. Cole is the nerdy teammate ...more

This was great, did find it super predictable that obvs they lacked communication and that resulted in a complete misunderstanding, but at least they had a happily ever after at the end.

I did find it weird that Tess was often saying the word Awk-weird. I did also find it annoying when she's like it ...more
