Bailey McMillan's life is a mess. The general public blames him for his former employer's nuclear pollution, resulting in professional disgrace. Humiliated, he takes a job as an editor at a science magazine run by his best friend, John. That part isn't so bad; Bailey is fond of John, who seems to find Bailey's abrasive nature amusing. Unfortunately, working for John also leads to writing an astrology column in exchange for getting free rein in some op-ed articles-and then being sued over one. The (totally coincidental) accuracy of the column offers opportunity for further professional disgrace if anyone discovers its author-and then Bailey digs himself a little deeper. In an attempt to prove astrology is bogus, he agrees to an experiment to date someone from each star sign. As if that wasn't bad enough, Bailey's got a stupid crush on John, who stubbornly insists on a detailed breakdown of every date-bad and otherwise. Bailey's luck has to improve sometime... right?

I dunno a whole lot 'bout this astrology business, but this book seems like it had some actual research put into it. I actually rather liked the characters and the way they interacted. And I love how the MC unabashedly complained about how much he missed sex.

Overlong, but gently paced, with moments of humor and hysteria both. A little pedantic and dull in patches—but just barely, and overall the slower tempo and repetitive date/dar complein/say-something-awkward-to-John vignettes establish a dreamy and hypnotic rhythm that was mostly mesmerizing and ple...

1,5 stars.I didn't hate it - and that is pretty much the nicest thing to say about that book. It was not funny at all and the "banter" between the two MCs was so lame it didn't deserve to be called banter at all. I disliked Bailey, the genius, tremendously. It just grates your nerves to constantly h...

Wonderfully cranky hero, friends to lovers, socially awkward genius and a HEA. Loved every word of it.
