The Chronicles of Moxie by ZB Heller
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+
The Chronicles of Moxy on Amazon
Dawn's 4.5 BookMark Review
I have to give it to this author, she had a good foundation for this story. Add to that I really enjoyed the fact that the main character was NOT a size 4. Moxie is a size 16, sarcastic, funny, filthy girl. That being said the writing style reminded me of Tara Sivec, Alice Clayton and a dash of Kendall Grey all rolled into one. This book had me laughing out loud.
Moxie is a kindergarten teacher who has a two best friends, Ryan and Renee. She dates to keep her stepmother off of her back and has a list of past boyfriends with very humorous nicknames. While out drinking with Renee bemoaning her last nights date when she spots an "Adonis" whom she gets into a verbal naughty spar with right before throwing up on his shoes. Much to Moxie's chagrin her new student comes to class on Monday along with his father who is none other than her Adonis from the bar.
The rest of the book is about Moxie and Miles, their inability to be on the same page and how they overcome their fears.
If you are looking for a good book that will have you wiping away tears from laughing, you will find it in this book. I truly enjoyed the banter between Renee and Moxie, especially about their students in class (PP) and the sexual anatomy of animals.
