Dani can’t wait for senior year at college. A straight-A scholar whose anxiety is a daily struggle, being awkward, introverted, and studious has become a way of life. She vows this year will be different. It’s time to move beyond her comfort zone, but that’s not easy.
Dani’s wild roommate and handsome best friend hate each other; her crazy family won’t leave her alone; and a new job forces her to be social. Unfortunately, when college romance finally calls, Dani is unable to answer thanks to a stalker who has her all tied up.
Can she stay alive long enough to find love and graduate?
Twelve Months of Awkward Moments is a new adult romantic suspense by Lisa Acerbo. This book sent me on an emotional roller coaster ride. First, it wasn’t at all what I expected it to be. I knew there was a stalker involved, but I didn’t know too much more than that other than it was set at a college. I was expecting this to be a light romantic suspense story, heavy on the romance. And I have to tell you, this is a not what I would call a light read. It was much more intense than I was expecting. It took me a while to get my bearings with this novel, but I ended up enjoying the story.
The best part of Twelve Months of Awkward Moments were the characters. I absolutely loved Dani. I am going to be 100% honest with you. If I didn’t love Dani so much, and if I didn’t find her so relate able, this book would have taken me a lot longer to get through. I’m not even sure if I would have finished it. It’s not that the book is not good. It is good, it was just a lot heavier than I was expecting. But I had to know what was going to happen in Dani’s life. She pulled me in. Twelve Months of Awkward Moments is told from her perspective, which was a big winner for me.
The book does live up to the title as well. There are plenty of awkward moments that Dani faced in her senior year of college. And it was refreshing to see a plot that was not 100% predictable. Twelve Months of Awkward Moments felt unique in a really good way. Fans of romantic suspense, and books that tackle some serious issues will really enjoy Twelve Months of Awkward Moments. And I think you will fall in love with Dani like I did. She is a character that I feel will really resonate with a lot of readers. You can’t help but fall in love with her and you can’t help but to root for her.
