Review: The Hot Mess and the Heartthrob by Pippa Grant

He could have the world, yet he’s looking at me like I am his world.

You don’t know me, but you do know me. I’m your neighborhood hot mess single mom, doing my best to keep my head above water while running my little slice of heaven and keeping my youngest from shoving marbles up his nose, which is exactly what he’s doing the first time Levi Wilson, pop star god, world’s sexiest man, and my all-time number one celebrity obsession, walks into my bookstore.

Related: I’m writing this from beyond the grave, because I’ve died of mortification and am now residing in an alternate universe.

I have to be.

Because Levi Wilson came back.

And we had a moment.

Like, a moment moment. The kind that makes me remember that adult pleasure isn’t all about hoping the lock holds in the bathroom so your kids don’t interrupt on the rare occasion you feel like taking an extra-long mommy-time shower.

So when he proposes a no-strings fling?

Count. Me. In.

Thrill of a lifetime, right?

Surely, nothing will go wrong…

The Hot Mess and the Heartthrob is a rockin’ fun, sexy romantic comedy featuring a celebrity panty-melter who doesn’t know what he’s been missing, a sassy single mom hanging on by a string, three adorable children who would never burst in on a woman when she’s on a toilet (ha!), and shameless ovary-busting moments between a guy who never thought he’d be a dad and a family who thought they got along just fine without him. It stands alone and comes complete with a happily-ever-after.

My Review:
Title: The Hot Mess and the Heartthrob
Author: Pippa Grant
Format: Ebook
Genre: Romantic Comedy, Rockstar, Single-Mom
Stanalone: Yes
Part of a Series: Book 4 in Bro Code
POV: Levi and Ingrid
Steam Level: Slow burn to toasty at times

The Hot Mess and the Heartthrob is book 4 in the Bro Code series. If you’ve read previous books in this series then you recognize some of the side characters and see more of their HEAs and if you’ve read Pippa Grant in general you’ll love the cameo = which made me tear up. I loved Ingrid and Levi and Levi’s mom was the best. Pippa Grant shows that even if you’re a world-famous rock god, your mom can still be mad at you and get even by embarrassing you in front of the girl you like. Ingrid’s kids are hilarious and you can feel her love for and frustration with her kids. And their pet, which Pippa Grant always creates as a character themselves. I laughed, I cried, I bought the book – even after reading the ARC. Or maybe because I did. Pippa Grant is one of the few authors I one-click. I stayed up way too late on a work night and have no remorse whatsoever.

I received an advanced copy of this book. This is my honest and voluntary review.
