When I first saw the blurb and cover of Stirred, I was expecting a poignant story of two people bonding over their aging fathers. I didn’t get that exactly. I did enjoy the novel, it was just more cute and flirty then I was expecting. I loved the addition of the comics; I thought they added a fun element to the story.
Zoe is independent and spunky but she loves her father. I loved that she came home to fight for his health. It hit a little close to home since a pulmonary embolism is what caused my stepdad’s death. I could sympathize with Max on that one. Max was charming and sweet. And maybe a tad too soft for my tastes—I like my sweet tempered with a side of alpha. I felt like he let Zoe walk all over him. I loved the secondary story of Dominic and Bridget; I thought it was adorable watching them flirt with each other. I didn’t understand all the side characters but that could be because I’m just now jumping into the series.
Overall, it’s a solid and well written story. A bit quirky and while it may not end up on my top 10 for the year or my re-read list, I did enjoy it. If you like quirky, sweet romances then this one might be for you. -Peace and Love, Buxom J
