Have you ever wondered about that girl at the edge of the crowd? The one who has dark, bushy hair that hides her eyes while she's reading, but tight shirts that don't even try to hide the size of her breasts? You've heard the rumors, you know the rude nicknames, and you wonder what she really does when she's not in school. She never comes to parties and she lives in a neighborhood where nice girls never venture. Everyone tries to ignore her...but there is something about her that's impossible to ignore. Especially for the star quarterback, apparently. Because he just asked her to the Homecoming dance, after dumping the head cheerleader.

Catchpenny tells the story from the eyes of "that girl," and Wicked Lover is just the beginning of this coming of age serial novel. The small town minds of Shirley County have underestimated Meg Shannon for too long. She’s even more fun than she is trouble…but maybe she has finally met her match.

My Review:
Catchpenny: Wicked LoverCatchpenny: Wicked Lover by Sarah Wathen

Catchpenny: Wicked Lover is a real, raw, coming of age story with a young woman that is already strong with who she is.

Meg, “from the wrong side of the tracks”, is asked to the homecoming dance by the recently broken up football star, Tristan. Tristan wants to explore his sexuality without the scorn of his past relationship and Meg is all too happy to oblige.

Meg faces ridicule from the “popular” crowd – mean girls but she doesn’t fall to their pressure.

While Tristan comes into himself and finds camaraderie with other kid that he would have never associated with.

My complaint would be the length, I wanted more and what they heck is on the cover, its eye catching but I have no freakin’ clue what it is.

Wathen wrote real people with real flaws that you could relate with.

I received this copy of Catchpenny: Wicked Lover from Sarah Wathen in exchange for a honest review.

  1. Thanks so much for your review, Beth, glad you liked it! You can see that cover morph on the next three covers of the serial novel: And now the entire book is out in its complete form, so you don't need to read each part separately. I'll send it over as a gift, really appreciate you giving Wicked Lover a read.
