Kissing Ted Callahan (and Other Guys)
The characters are each unique but without it being in your face how each person is different. Riley is adorably awkward when it comes to romance. She does this thing where whenever she’s talking with Ted Callahan she can’t help but talk overly loud. I love reading about a heroine who is awkward at flirting and dating because that is totally how I am.
Kissing Ted Callahan is also seriously funny and all around adorable. There’s several pages throughout the story from Riley and Reids notebook that they pass back and forth documenting their endeavors. I’m not sure I really enjoyed these snippets as much as I could have but I can definitely see some people loving them.
There are an abundance of music references (Riley is the drummer in a band) which I will admit I did not understand for the most part. I don’t really listen to any of this music so I was just lost when bands or songs were mentioned but if you do listen to these bands I think you’d love seeing them referred to.
I don’t think I really explained just how much I loved Riley and the romance in Kissing Ted Callahan but basically they’re awesome and one of the best things ever!
Do I recommend? BIG YES
I consider it a must for contemporary fans and a definite try for others.
