BLOG TOUR Oh Henry by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff

Oh Henry

Ohellno Series 

by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff 

Date: August 25, 2017 
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romantic Comedy

My name is Henry Walton, and though I've been called many things throughout my life--tree trunk, moose, walrus--I am now six foot five, solid muscle, and the hottest defensive end in the NFL college draft. This is the moment I've been waiting for: fame, women, and glory.

Just one problem: I'm suddenly in a bad slump. And it started the moment I got dumped by Elle, the nerdy goddess with thick glasses, a smokin' hot body, and a genius IQ.

So what gives? We only dated for a few weeks, and it's not like I've missed her. (Much.) Regardless, all the facts point to one conclusion. Elle is my lucky nerd-charm.

Call me superstitious, but I have to get her back before I lose everything. Even if she's the last girl I should want and she now hates my guts.

I did not know what to expect with this book. In Smart Tass, Henry could have been preserved as the dumb jock type, he didn't talk much and  his actions seemed very neanderthal-ish. In a way it's almost better to read this as a stand alone, in this one you see there's so much more to Henry. He is that one one sweet jock who is so cocky and full of himself but he's adorable at it you can't help but like him. What Henry doesn't let on is how unsupportive his parents are and how everything he's doing is just to prove his father wrong. Elle, I don't know what I think about Elle, she's brilliant and she's not humble about it. She never wanted to go to college she's been reading college type text books and basically everything she can get her hands on since she was little. The only reason she's at the college is that it is her mother's dying that Elle goes. Elle is a sweetie but she can be a bitch when her defenses are up. Elle is devastated her mother is going to die and the only way she can deal with it is to completely separate her home and school life. 

Henry and Elle are an odd couple who just seem to work. Of course they don't see that until it's too late. Elle thinks she wants one thing and ends the non-relationship they are in and suddenly Henry starts to play badly, and he can't afford that he in h is senior year he needs to play well so he can get drafted. Henry doesn't believe in superstition like some football players but it isn't until he realizes he played his best games when Elle was around. Thoroughly convinced that Elle is his good luck charm he is determined to get her back with three sisters he thinks he knows exactly how to do it, he really does pull out all the stops trying to win her back, but he goes too far when he shows up at her family's house and breaks down that carefully placed wall erected. The more Henry tries to win her back the more he realizes it was more than just sex with Elle. Elle can't fathom why Henry,  she eventually figures it out that he may not be what she expected or wanted but he definitely is what she needs. But then the unthinkable happens and Henry life turns upside down. Can Elle woman up and face it with Henry or will she use it as an excuse to bail?

Overall, it's typical Mimi, well it's not quite typical Mimi the MC hero isn't an asshole. The narration is first person POV that switches between Elle and Henry. It has that trademark snarky and humorous storytelling that made me fall in love with her books. IT'S NOT A CLIFFHANGER, not technically. Henry and Elle's story does have a conclusion but the ending is a teaser for the next book Digging A Hole.

From New York Times Bestseller Mimi Jean Pamfiloff comes SMART TASS, a new Romantic Comedy.

He’s the hot quarterback all the girls want.
She’s the smart girl he loves to pick on.
And now that they’re all grown up, things are about to get geekin’ ugly…

My name is Tass. I’m smart, I’m driven, and I am determined not to let prankster Hunter Johnson continue raining on my parade. When we were little, he’d pull my hair and call me names. When we were teenagers, he’d throw food and tease me for being a flat-chested virgin.

But now that we’ve ended up at the same college, he’s out of his hot head if he thinks he can keep messing with my life. It’s like he’s fixated on me or something. Well, guess what, Mr. Amazefootball? I’m not that geeky little girl anymore and you do not screw with a smart woman.

So what’s my plan?

It’s definitely wild, and he’s about to find out…
