Oh how I loved Beowulf for Cretins. It’s clever, witty and just a fun read. But that’s what I have come to expect from author calibre like Ann McMan.
After meeting the woman of her dreams on a plane, Grace never expects to see Abbie again but said plane ride is the first of many unexpected meetings. After one night of passion the two find themselves in each others presence time and time again and the attraction keeps growing but when Abbie turns out to be Grace’s new boss, they both know but two things… 1. Falling for Abbie could end Grace’s career and 2. It’s too late she’s already falling.
With secret meet ups and an adorable dog named Grendel, these two have their work cut out for them. But doesn’t love conquer all?
So here’s the thing, Beowulf for Cretins is possibly one of the best novels I have ever read so I am going to be straight up honest and say if you are looking for a racy romance read this is probably not for you, but if your looking for an intelligent love story that will give you the feels from the beginning, then this book is for you. Utterly perfect.
Beowulf for Cretins is written solely from Grace’s point of view and what a view of life she has. She’s not the most positive person but what she lacks in positivity she gains in her quirky, loveable demeaner and she’s down right hilarious (without knowing it), I had many a chuckle while reading her inner thoughts. I loved Abbie’s character and reading her was a delight. She was a little mysterious, but I felt like I was falling for her along with Grace as her feelings unravel and their relationship blooms. Also, I adored the candour used when Abbie tells Grace her feelings, I don’t think it could be written any other way or she would have been too much of a mystery.
All in all, this is a love story with a difference and I urge readers to give it a go. I can’t wait to pick up my paperback copy for my favourites shelf at home.
Unequivocally 5 stars.
