  • lighthearted romance

    Teddy Spenser Isn't Looking for Love is an entertaining lighthearted romantic comedy, and considering the stressful year 2020 has been, it's just what the doctor ordered. I needed something light, and Teddy and Romeo were just the couple. Sure, the story verges on ridiculous at times, and there is no way most of the situations these two find themselves in would ever happen, but it kept me smiling through most of the book, and once I warmed up to Teddy, I wanted to see these two together. I'll admit, I didn't care for Teddy in the beginning, but I did warm up to him as the story moved along. This one may not be my usual kind of read, but I ended up enjoying it much more than I expected in the beginning. I'd say if you're in the mood for something light and easy, Teddy Spenser Isn't Looking for Love is a good way to go.

  • All the love for this narrative

    Teddy and Romeo are colleagues and Teddy knows for sure he dislikes Romeo. They have to do an important job together and sharing time day and night it seems Teddy has a lot of misunderstandings and misinterpretation about Romeo. Instead of being a haughty guy like Teddy always assumed, it seems Teddy was the haughty one. Something sweet blooms and Teddy who doesn’t believe much in love wonders what is happening. The story around their job and the challenges they had was absolutely brilliant. I loved Teddy so much, his beautiful creative mind, his insecurities, so sweet vulnerable and Romeo gosh he’s soft, kind, a family man, the perfect boyfriend! Hiking, playing games, cooking, telling each other their dreams, it was everything! Teddy wants to win all contests but in the end, he wanted Romeo to win. Watch that balloon!! There are some delightful finest humorous moments to find! The author has a wonderfully engaging way of storytelling, the characters were lovable and the story was well developed. All the love for this narrative!

  • CUTE

    Thank you, Harlequin- Carina Press and NetGalley, for the chance to read and review this book! Teddy Spenser works for Reddyflora, he spends his days selling design ideas and his nemesis is Romeo Blue (real name, even though Teddy couldn't believe it XD) who is a software engineer. They are very different from one other, but when they are forced to work together everything changes, turning their worlds upside down. Sitting together on the plane, staying in the same hotel room, spending more and more time together means getting to know each other and while Teddy changes his mind about Romeo, he can't ignore the spark between them. And sometimes first impressions can be SO wrong. While trying to secure a deal for their company, between weird tests and eccentric and rich old ladies, Teddy and Romeo have to learn how to work together and discover something about one other. Teddy Spenser isn't looking for love is an absolutely sweet and cute book and it made me swoon and squeal since the beginning! The story captured my attention right away and Teddy is a wonderful main character and I couldn't not love him. He's funny and insecure and I love the way he and Romeo gets to know one other, getting past their first impressions and really getting to know their true selves. Joyce made me laugh so much and I loved the tests and the part they played in Teddy's and Romeo's relationship. I'm so sure Joyce started shipping them together right away! This book is full of cute and funny moments, sweet parts and I really loved reading it! It's about love and hope, happiness and trust and I loved everything.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Wonderful!

    Absolutely adorable! I was so in the mood to read something sweet and light and funny and romantic, and Kim Fielding's Teddy Spenser was just what I needed. A truly fun romantic comedy, with wonderful characters - I think I smiled the whole way through.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • problematic...b ut well written?

    My thoughts bit: This is my first book of Kim Fielding's. She has an extensive collection of books so if you're looking for an author that will give you some good reading material for a long time then Fielding may be a good choice for you! Teddy and Romeo work at the same company. While working on a digital vase they combine their different talents. Romeo is a buttoned-down programmer with a stark office and a brusk attitude. Teddy is dynamic and unapologetically himself. he's the kind of guy who would buy a unicorn pen and won't ever be caught in an outfit that wasn't worthy of a photoshoot. As these two men work on a project that needs both their talents, they finally get to know each other. When they are dispatched to another city to try and convince an investor to come on board - things get peculiar and amusing. The fashion icon they've been sent to sets up a really strange set of tests before them - that seem to have very little to do with their work - but the two men commit to doing their best. Turns out, their best is quite hilarious. There are a series of lovely failures that really bring out the quirkiness of these two characters and, in a way, bring them together. Even though I wasn't sure what the challenges had to do with designing a vase, I was amused by their antics. I really wish that the challenges had made more sense in terms of the business nature of the relationship. It was a bit out of left field and I got a bit sidetracked for a while, wondering why some rich person was able to treat two men as experiments. I feel as though it was an odd choice. Teddy's challenge is that he's convinced he's not interested in a relationship and at the beginning of the book he's dead set against being serious about anyone. shortly after he begins the challenges with Romeo though - that all falls by the wayside. I was a bit surprised at how quickly these two moved past their challenges to become enamoured with one another. We're talking days here! I'm not a fan of instalove so that aspect of this novel didn't work for me - but I know that a lot of readers really enjoy it! This novel is touted as a novel with a diverse character. Romeo is black and while he is a great character in some ways, I was uncomfortable with the way that his life was represented. The fact that he is a character of colour really only comes up when he talks about how poor he was growing up and how his mom's cooking was great and soulful. That was problematic for me. I didn't get an authentic feel for this representation. This book could definitely benefit from sensitivity reading. I have no idea how the author identifies so I can't speak to whether this is an "own voices" book. There were a couple of over-used tropes in this book but the author has a great writing style. The characters were original and well-developed. I enjoyed the interaction between the two characters despite the quick progression of their relationship.
