Getting the Goods by Elizabeth Perry – Review by Shannon Fowler

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Getting the Goods is a funny story that is a little sad when you think about it. Stealing sperm? What could possibly go wrong!? I don’t think I have read a funnier story. Gabriella and Conner are completely different types of people, however they want the same things; to have great sex with no strings and ultimately, to just be happy.

Gabriella and Conner are fun characters that learn a few things during the course of this story. Conner ends up being her boss but in turn needs her, first in business then in his personal life. Gabriella only needs Conner for one thing, his goods.

This story kept me laughing and hoping, because a story that starts out with the characters plotting to steal sperm has got to be good. Getting the Goods is the first book I have read by Elizabeth Perry and she did not let me down. I really hope her other stories are just as much fun to read.

I was supposed to go to the gym yesterday but I skipped it because I didn’t want to put this funny rom-com down.

I have so many funny quotes highlighted that I feel like I would just be quoting the book by putting them here. Oh ok, here are a few of my favorites:

(When talking about going to jail) “First of all, you’d be just fine as someone’s (b word). You were in a sorority in college, after all. It’s probably the same thing, just with less booze.”

“I haven’t had sex in so long that I’m pretty sure my vagina is dryer than the Sahara Desert. It’s quite sad, actually.”

“…I would rather get gang banged by a group of chickens than to have to touch David in that way. A girl has to have standards.”

See??? Funny Stuff!!!!

Gabriella and her bestie, Maria, are so funny together and the way they talk to each other had me laughing out loud. The heat between Gabriella and Conner was scorching. Their banter back and forth was as funny as the girls’. It’s a romantic comedy in the classic sense of the word.

This was a fun book to read and although it had a few grammatical errors, it was never enough to take me out of the story. The characters are quickly developed, we are able to know their motivation so there is never any doubt as to what is going on and it flows well from beginning to end.

I am hopeful that the best friend and brother get their stories told also.

5 stars.

Getting the Goods is a standalone contemporary romance novel that will have you laughing from the very first chapter. The plot is simple, yet completely ridiculous, which is what makes it such an addictive read. The characters are engaging and honestly, I just really liked this read. For fans of romantic comedies or classic miscommunication scenarios, this is a must read.

We meet Gaby during one of the most important nights of her life; the night she will finally steal the sperm needed to help her get pregnant. This sounds insane, but as soon as I read the blurb I new I had to read this book. The more crazy, the better, right? Gaby and the relationship with her friend Maria (who let’s be honest, has some questionable practices) is amusing right from the beginning and remains this way throughout the story. But things really get interesting when Gaby meets Conner/Carter and hilarity really ensues. Not only does Gaby find out her job is at risk and the man whose sperm she tried to steal is now her boss, she is also faced with his twin. Yep, there are two of them. Cue funny miscommunications, dramatic passing-outs and awkward encounters. What more could you want from a romantic read?

This is a feel-good read that has the perfect balance of drama, emotion and laughs. While the comedy level is high, there are some serious issues dealt with in this book, including Gaby’s issues with fertility. This may be a difficult read for some but I found it insightful and inspiring. The author dealt with these themes respectfully and it’s left me wanting to read more of her work. If you’re looking for a well-rounded and satisfying read, Getting the Goods is a must!

This book was so enjoyable to read!! I was hooked from the beginning and was entertained throughout the entire book. I loved the banter between the two main characters. I also really enjoyed the relationship between Gabby and her best friend, the situations those two get themselves in are hilarious. This book had more than humor, there are very connectable characters and steamy hot moments. I highly recommend this book it is a must read!!!

Getting the Goods is a must read rom-com by Elizabeth Perry. This was my first book by this author, but I can assure you it won’t be my last. I completely devoured this book, I read it in one sitting as I couldn’t bring myself to put it down. I was able to connect with these characters from the get go which made this reading experience so enjoyable!

Getting the Goods is sweet, romantic, captivating, entertaining and laugh out loud funny! So funny in fact that I was so surprised at how emotional I became as the story went on! My only complaint about this book is that it ended, I could have read about these characters for so much longer!

I would definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for their next romance read!

Getting the Goods By Elizabeth Perry. This book is in my top five reads of this year for sure! I knew I was in for a good time when I read the blurb but it’s was even better than expected! I was completely hooked from page one and read it in one sitting because I just couldn’t put it down. The characters have a connection that jumps off the pages. I loved their banter back and forth. There were times when I didn’t think I’d stop laughing. Each character was my favorite, I honestly couldn’t pick just one. The author does a wonderful job of writing characters that you can relate to and love. It’s well written and paced nicely. The storyline is a fresh and funny take on a romance story. I can’t wait to read more from this author. I’m giving this book a five star review and highly recommend it to everyone.

Getting the Goods by Elizabeth Perry is my first book by this author and she has got herself a new fan. This book was a quick read that will have you holding your side from the laughing pains till the end. “Steal the sperm” may have got me to read this book but it was laughing at loud writing that won me over. Poor Gabriella sure knows how to make a first impression and a second one too. But it was her no filter – says anything attitude that had me loving her character.

Don’t take my word for how funny sweet and sexy this book is; I highly recommend you pick up this book for yourself and find out.

Getting the Goods by Elizabeth Perry is a quirky and satisfying tale that was shamelessly brilliant. It has so much on offer. Hilarity? Check. Elegant disorganisation? Check. Heart rate elevating passion? Check. Spine tingling, toe curling sesuality? Check. Battles? Check. Making up? Check. Perfection? Check, check and check!!! I loved these characters, adored how the story presented, loved the tenacious spirit of the leading lady, and swooned every time the leading man was mentioned.

I cannot remember the last time i was that invested in a romantic comedy. I didn’t know what was going on around me. I was totally under the spell of this wonderfully entertaining cast. Elizabeth Perry is an author I will be getting to know better as soon as I can. It was a hoot being able to rendezvous with this colourful collection of personalities. 5 stars.

Getting the Goods by Elizabeth Perry is a flawed romantic comedy that will have you swooning and laughing throughout the fables of her main characters. Following the story of Gabriella Martin, who while she is still a young’un at just 29 years old, she is convinced that if she isn’t a mother soon, she never will be. Coming up with a scheme to get knocked up, leads her on a hilarious ride and strangers who will way lay her best laid plans. Meeting the perfect stranger, tall dark and handsome, and the night is full of steamy oohs and ahhs, until the next morning when Gabie splits and doesn’t expect to see this man again having gotten everything she needed from him. But he isn’t too far behind her, because he happens to be her new boss. The ensuing story is full of awkward morning afters, steamy hook ups, and feelings that neither of them were ready for. Will these two be able to make a multiple night stand work for the long haul when a bundle of joy comes along. Perry is a new to me author, but I am so happy that I picked this one up. If you are looking for a great book that will make you laugh, cry and fall in love with each page. I can’t wait to see what else Perry brings to her readers next.

Ok so this was an awesome book, it was easy to read and I did it in one sitting. It was fun and had me laughing out loud in many parts and then proceeded to get a bit more intense allowing me to become emotionally invested in the story.

Gabrielle was just plain perfect and everything I love in a leading lady…Her sassiness totally floored me and her and Maria together…OMG awesome…In comes Conner and his and Gabrielle’s first meeting was to die for funny…and the dialogue during this first meeting coming out of Gabrielle had me rolling.

The scenes with Conner’s “Mother” had me all kinds of messed up and I won’t tell you why that is…You have to read it to believe it.

I wish I could go into more detail about this story but I just can’t..It wouldn’t be fair, just know that I highly recommend everyone read this book.

This is my first read by this author, and if this one is anything to go by then I’ll be reading everything she has available and that which she comes out with from here on.

Simply Loved this story!!!
