Good things come in extra-large, smoking hot packages. Things like pizza.
The very pizzas that I deliver for my dad’s restaurant, Peretti’s Pizza. It’s a temporary job, something to pay the bills until I graduate from school, but it does the trick. In fact, it’s working quite well until Ryan Pierce of the LA Lightning decides to order a pizza from me, and life as I know it turns upside down.
You see, Ryan Pierce doesn’t just open his front door. He opens it buck naked. And suddenly, I’m not the one boasting the biggest, hottest package in the room. However, it’s what happens next that makes my stomach flip upside down whenever my phone beeps. Ryan starts to call, and then text, and then fifteen pizza deliveries and one hot-as-sin kiss later, we’re friends.
So when he asks me to be his fake girlfriend at his brother’s wedding, I’m happy to help. But the longer we pretend, the more I worry that this is one package I might not be able to handle.
4 out of 5 stars
I’m not sure why I passed this book up so many times in my feed, but I’m really glad I gave it a chance because this book was great!!
Delivery Girl is the story of Andi Peretti, a college student who works for her dad’s pizzeria in Los Angeles. She’s asked to make a delivery and stumbles upon a house and hears people getting it on. When she rings the doorbell, a man answers in nothing but a towel – so she assumes he was the person getting busy.
The man in the towel is Ryan Pierce, professional hockey player for the Minnesota hockey team, who is in LA looking to play for their team. Turns out he’s staying at his brother’s house, and he’s instantly smitten with Andi upon meeting her. What would any normal person do to get another person’s attention – order more pizzas of course.
Can I just say how much I loved Ryan. As I sit here typing, watching a hockey game, I feel a certain way about him. I LOVE hockey, so the fact that he was a hockey player was a bonus. But he was such a sweet guy. A true gentleman. I can’t say enough about how great he was.
Andi was also great. She was a college student who dreamed of being a stand-up comedienne. She played several sets in the book, but they never covered any of her material, which I would have appreciated.
This was a great little read and I’m glad I gave it a chance. I would recommend it.
