Blog Tour & Book Review: Long Shot by Kayti McGee

Long Shot 
by Kayti McGee
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Meredith definitely drank too much last night. Why on earth else would she have woken up without her purse, and the distinct memory of giving her number to a stripper? So gross.

The good news is, she never has to see him again. Except to get her purse. And to discover she did another terrible, horrible, very bad thing while drunk- she accidentally became a professional penis photographer.

Rob wishes more people would believe him when he says he truly is stripping his way through journalism school. It's the only way Millennials can afford school with no student loans. When Meredith quite literally stumbles across his path, he's super smitten. Sadly, she is less so once she sobers up.

Can he trick her into dating him?
Can she trick her mother into thinking she has a respectable job?
And can anyone recover once the internet picks up their story? It's a long shot for both of them.

My review:
I don’t know if it’s because I don’t do funny or if the book just isn’t at all what I thought it would be. I just didn’t get the charm of this story.

The Story:
Meredith wakes up with a massive hangover and realizes that she gave her number to a striper. Why did she do that? He may be hot in the dimly lit club and sexy in his g-string when you're drunk but in broad daylight it's just sad. She thinks herself lucky to never have to see him again though she realizes all too soon that she obviously left her purse in the strip club the night before. Now she can only hope that he won't be there when she drives back to the place where she just yesterday got a lap dance from this guy she gave her number to. Ugh!

Rob is a student working as a striper to pay for his bills. Though he can't wait to finish his studies to finally start a normal job and stop taking off his clothes for money.
Rob and Meredith think they know what they want and don’t want in life but when fate has different plans with you, just roll with it and open up to the things you enjoy even though your morals are going crazy because of it.

The story was okay but nothing great. I expected a lot more and I believe it had the potential for it. It sure could have been better.
I would have liked to read what happened before the book started, when Rob and Meredith met at the strip club. Maybe we missed out on the fun of this part. I felt like the story didn't go anywhere and I didn't like the characters that much either. Meredith was annoying, unhappy and unsatisfied with her life. She was drunk a lot and often woke up with a hangover. I didn't understand why she was so adamant to stay away from Rob when she obviously liked him. Just because he was a stripper?
Gabe was just weird. He kind of loved her from the beginning and it felt like he always just wanted to fuck her. I was missing the connection between those characters. And why did he always had to fill her up? Does he like her better when she was drunk? Okay, she loosened up a bit with alcohol but still. It bothered me. She had to acknowledge her feelings when she was sober.
There were some funny moments but just a few. As I said before, it was not as I expected and a bit disappointing.
It's a nice read but kind of ridiculous. I just didn’t get the fun stuff. I'm sorry. It may be a fun and hilarious read to some people but it didn't feel that way for me.
