This might a tough one. Maria is looking for a book she really didn't like but can't get out of her head. (I have so been there.)
I need a HaBO intervention! So I went through a phase about a year ago where I realized I was basically Pokemon-ing the free romance books over on Amazon. If I'm being honest, I'm still not over that phase. The problem is occasionally I'll read a good (or good enough) one and then the hoarding starts again.
In the midst of my free e-book hoarding I read the book I am requesting help for. It was NOT a good book, in fact it royally pissed me off and I'm pretty sure I deleted it in a fit of rage but now it's stuck in my head and I need the title to get it the eff out!
So I beseech you, help a bitch out, because I'm going a little crazy over here and it's starting to disturb my dogs.
Our heroine is a college student who suddenly finds herself to be soooo poor because her parents have died and it is revealed they had poor estate planning and lived well beyond their means. So our girl is living on ramen and peanut butter when she runs into a Bad Boy!
His tattoos are sooo bad but his eyes are sooo pretty, what's a girl to do? We'll she rushes off to her job (spray tan place I believe) and gets fired and later, evicted from her apartment. Her BFF (a spunky blonde who rocks pigtails) suggests she waitress at this club that her boyfriends friend owns with his brother and they set up an interview. She goes to the meeting and lo and behold, it's our Bad Boy Hearthrob.
He ends up hiring her, they become buddies (although it's clear he wants to set up residence in her lady pants town) and eventually he moves her into his home, right down the hallway from the master suite. Everyone is super shocked because he's a fickle beast who allows no one near his private quarters, even his brother lives in the basement and dares not wander upstairs.
They live happily together and she teaches him about normal things like Christmas and brunch. He takes her on an outing/date where they make out in the snow, awwww so sweet. He tries to sex her up but she puts on the brakes because she's a scared little virgin but he throws a hissy fit and rushes off before she can explain her scaredy virgin-ness to him.
She runs after him only to find him banging a mutual acquaintance doggie style in his office at the club. She's horrified because he doesn't seem to be enjoying it at all and also because he's banging someone else. She runs off after a tussle with the security guard and goes back to their shared abode where she takes a sad girl bubble bath and totally blames herself for his philandering ways.
He comes in and she tells him about her virginity and he bangs her and everything is puppies and rainbows BUT WAIT!
It turns out his family runs an underground mma/fight club thing in the basement of their club with him as the prizefighter (it's a family legacy dontchaknow) and she HATES FIGHTING ( just because, no mention of nonviolence beliefs or brain injuries here, she just doesn't like it) so she throws a fit of her own and he's like “baby, that was my last fight” and she's like “ok, more sex now please”
Please let this book be called Lady Pants Town. Please. PLEASE.
