This special paperback bind-up includes the first two books of the series, The Taming of the Dudebro and A Midsummer Night's Dudebro!

In The Taming of the Dudebro, Patricia’s dream is coming true: she is directing her own play, a one-act written by her best friend, Grizz, for the school’s annual Drama Festival. Everything seems to be perfect until her teacher assigns Kurt Minola, the biggest jerk in the school, to work on her play. Kurt is lazy, selfish and irresponsible. The only good thing about him is his attractive twin brother, Ben—but even he can’t seem to change Kurt’s attitude. Kurt’s presence turns Patricia’s dream into a nightmare... until Patricia and Grizz decide to take matters into their own hands, and subject this insufferable surfer-dude to some taming.

Then, in A Midsummer Night's Dudebro, with the theater festival behind her and graduation around the corner, Grizz Sheridan figured she was done with Kurt Minola. She wants to focus on spending time with her friends and enjoying her last summer before she goes off to college. No such luck now that Kurt’s crushing on her best friend (and his twin brother’s girlfriend), Patricia. It seems like he’s glued to her side no matter where she goes—class, parties, even Prom.

Grizz thinks her luck is changing when she begins working at Merry Mule Coffee Roasters and meets super hottie, Dimitri. That is, until a certain surfer boy starts working there, too—and suddenly seems to have turned his romantic interests elsewhere…

Will Grizz survive the summer?

The Taming of the Dudebro Volume 1 was a fun, exciting and delightful read! I loved the plot, the characters and the way the story was told.

There are two book in this volume. The first book; The Taming of the Dudebro is told from Patricia's perspective. Patricia is directing a play for her school written by her best friend Grizz. They unfortunately are stuck with Kurt Minola, the biggest jerk in the school, to work on her play. Kurt is lazy, selfish and irresponsible. Patricia and Grizz decide to make sure Kurt actually helps them with the play instead of letting him get away with doing nothing.

I really enjoyed Patricia's and Grizz's friendship. It was truly genuine and awesome. I also liked Ben, Kurt's twin brother. Ben was really nice and a great addition to the story. I didn't really like Kurt at first, but really started to warm up to him when he started listening to Patricia and Grizz. The play Grizz wrote was really interesting too!

The second book; A Midsummer Night's Dudebro is told from Grizz's perspective. It was a great follow-up to the first book! I really liked seeing Patricia and Ben grow closer, Grizz working at the coffee shop and just getting to know more about the characters! Kurt was so much more compassionate and friendlier than he was in the first book! Getting to see more of Patricia's and Grizz's friendship was also a bonus! They were always there for each other and I think that was a great part of the story!

I really loved reading these two books. It was filled with romance, humor and excitement! I would recommend The Taming of the Dudebro Volume 1 to fans of contemporary ya looking for something fun and and interesting to read!
