Awkwardland. It’s where I live. And I’m the president, mayor, and sole citizen.
Reese is living her safest life. This polymath is tired of trying to fit in with a small town that never knows what to do with her. Her absentee family may have forced her into dorm life for her own good, but she goes from her classes to her room and back—no parties, no dates, and no drawing attention.
Until one noisy night, when Reese gets kicked out of her dorm.
Fitz is living his okayest life. He’s on his own to pay for college, but he’s scraping by with an athletic scholarship and free rent with a friend. If he can keep it together, he’s on track to graduate with a useful degree, especially now that he’s finally said goodbye to his drama-loving ex-girlfriend.
Until one night, when she gets him kicked out of his house.
What happens when there’s one single room left for rent in the entire town and two people who desperately need it? A merrymaking, money-seeking landlord arrives and throws them into a series of ridorkulous challenges to compete for it, of course. It’s the dorky duckling versus the BMOC.
The winner will get a place to live—but the loser may just forfeit their heart.

I picked this one up because I thought it sounded like a cute and funny read. I love nothing better than a funny book.
This one is fifty-fifty. It has some really funny parts. And it has a really great cast of odd characters. I love a good cast of characters, that's for sure.
I enjoyed this book. It had some great moments and some not as great moments. Overall, I enjoyed this book. I'm glad I picked it up.
The biggest downfall for this book is the conflict resolution throughout the book. Everytime the main characters had a misunderstanding, the resolution was too quick. All was forgiven and forgotten with a simple sentence. This eventually got a little annoying.
The positive takeaway of this one is still the characters. I loved their interactions and their unique personalities and quirks. I will most certainly be picking up the other book in this duet so I can get more of them.
