This was both a heartwarming and funny story about two people who have had no luck with love. I was laughing out loud just a couple of pages in! Grace was a girl who thought she couldn't get a good looking guy (Bruce) because she wasn't pretty and thin. Bruce was a good looking guy who didn't think he good get a beautiful woman (Grace) because he was goofy. Factor in 6 cats, a funny cousin, a horrible boss, and you have the perfect recipe for a romantic comedy.
A clean read with a quirky fun dental hygienist, Grace Hart, who works for an obnoxious overbearing dentist for a boss, Dr. Beeth. Grace is a sweet, compassionate person who genuinely cares about the patients she treats. A new patient, Bruce Gardener, comes to Dr. Beeth's office and upon seeing Grace, wants to get to know her better. Dr. Beeth informs Grace that she may not see Bruce outside of the office or else he will fire her, but he enjoys threatening her about anything and everything. But love has a way of refusing to let a grumpy dentist get in the way. Bruce see Grace as beautiful, just the way she is, even though Grace sees herself as fat because of her family's view on size. This is a fun read with great characters and six fur babies too!
Flossophy of Grace is a great light and easy read. The book is fast paced and is packed with witty one line zingers between the two main characters Grace and Bruce. This book had me laughing throughout the entire book which made it a delight to read. It lighted my spirits as I chuckled at the numerous very corny, cute, and out-in-out ridiculous humor to be found between these pages. Grace is slightly unsure of herself having never really received any real encouragement in her life. She's great at her job and wonderful to her patients. She is however a slightly overweight, lonely dental hygienist who works for a horrid dentist - one of the very few in town. Bruce hasn't had much luck with the ladies due to his goofy sense of humor. While visiting the dental office where Grace works he sees her and is instantly drawn to her. He knows in his heart that she is the one for him. He sets out to get to know her and to somehow convince her that he loves her. After Bruce's first dental appointment with Grace they end up meeting at the same pizza parlor where they've ordered the same exact thing for lunch. They decide to eat together and spend an enjoyable lunch together. Hearing that she had lunch with Bruce, her employer Dr. Bleeth angrily tells her she is forbidden to see Bruce "socially" again or she will lose her job. Grace is greatly upset by his order as well as angry but see's no way around it. The way they find to circumvent her bosses edict is creative as they obey his order to the letter. Through several misunderstandings, confusion, and Grace's job loss they struggle to find a way to be together.
Such a heart warming book! This book really did leave me feeling all warm and fuzzy! I've enjoyed every book I've read by this author and this one didn't disappoint. It was full of fun, light-hearted, just the right amount of struggle and happy-the-villain-didn't-win moments! As usual, there were plenty of cats to keep us entertained and the secondary characters did add to the story in a very natural and fluid way. I ended up staying up late a couple of nights because I got so caught up! I love how well-rounded the story was and would recommend this book to everyone.
