Best read in order: Mostly, could work as a stand alone
“I’m a prick. A prickly bitter, volatile prick, destined to splat on the floor of life.” That quote from Paul about himself really sums up exactly who Paul is. He has had his heart broken and it has left him a bitter and sometimes very heartless individual. He has gotten so used to being a cynical ass that he doesn’t let the lack of people in his life get to him. To say Paul has trust issues would be a huge understatement.
In walks the new girls softball team coach Trevor. Trevor just happens to be the guy who broke Paul’s heart. Trevor was so easy to love and hate. What he did to Paul is horrible, but we are talking about the cruel things teens do to fit in and not be different from the norm. The grown up Trevor was so easy to love. He still wants Paul. He is willing to go above and beyond in fixing his wrongs to get Paul.
Paul does not make his road to a happily ever after easy. His personality quirks make for a very rough go at love. He literally turns the possibility of love into a disaster. Not being a Paul fan from reading him in Frat Boy and Toppy I was pleased to see that his actions made for difficult circumstances.
There is a scene that takes place in a bar between Toby and Paul. I do believe it was my favorite part of Love, Hypothetically. It allows Paul to be seen as a human with feeling who has the capabilities to care about others. It also lets readers see an incredible friend that Paul, Sebastian, and Brad have in Toby. I do hope that we get to see more of Toby. This is the type of person you want in your life as a friend.
I think Love, Hypothetically could be read as a stand-alone. I can guarantee that the moment you meet Brad and Sebastian you’re going to want to read Frat Boy and Toppy. If anything as a reader you’re going to want to know about the pancake reference. I was very pleased that Sebastian got as much page time as they did. I think I need to check out some of this Anne’s other books while I impatiently wait for the next in this series to come out!
