Read Check Me Out Online Free - Greta loves her job as assistant librarian. She loves her best friend, Will, the high school civics teacher and debate coach. She even loves her mother despite her obvious disappointment that Greta is still single.
Then she meets Mac in the poetry section of the library, and she is smitten. Mac is heart-stoppingly gorgeous and showers her with affection, poetic text messages, and free hot chocolate at the local café where he works. The only problem is that he seems to be a different person in his texts than in his face-to-face conversation.
When the Franklin Library is threatened with closure, Greta leaps into action. She arranges for a "battle of the bands" book jam, hosts a book signing by a famous author, and finally, stages a protest that raises more than a few eyebrows.
Through it all, she slowly realizes that it is Will, not Mac, who she turns to for support and encouragement. Mac has the looks; Will has the heart. How can she choose between them?
Check Me Out is a contemporary romance--with just a hint of Cyrano de Bergerac--that reminds us that it is what's on the inside that matters most.

I got to meet this company this weekend at Book Con. I was lucky enough to win 1 book and I went up on Sunday to inquire after this one because I could not get it out of my head. So, I asked if I could have a copy of this ARC. They graciously gave one to me and told me more about their company. I...

My expectations were super high going into this one. I love Shadow Mountain's Proper Romance line and love Becca Wilhite. I enjoyed this story overall but it fell just short of being a full 5-star book. I think my issue was with how insensitive and blind Greta was with regards to Will. I felt a l...

Isn't that cover super cute? I love it! I also was excited to see a contemporary romance in the Shadow Mountain Proper Romance line. They have some great historicals and I'm glad they're included contemporaries now as well.
I've always enjoyed the Cyrano de Bergerac storyline, especially the old...

In all honesty I am so torn right now about this book. The cover caught my eye. I mean, look at that catchy title and books too. Then the synopsis, completely Cyrano de Bergerac storyline and it's about a librarian. Can we say I was so excited and couldn't wait to read it. The love triangle seeme...

This was a great story! Witty banter, check. Clever dialogue, check. Unique characters, check, check, check. And the best part? All of these things were told in Wilhite's easy-breezy style of writing, which is such a pleasure to read. This story made me smile, swoon, and even laugh. I loved snugg...

I appreciate that the publishers allowed me to review this book but it was not for me at ALL! I loved the cover and the concept but I will get straight to the point of what killed this story for me.
The main character and the story drove me insane with her shallowness! It seemed every moment that...

I'm glad I kept reading to the end, because the beginning was a bit rough. I loved the aged library setting and Greta's passion for her job as a librarian. Being in her head however, was a bit of a trip. There was a lot of random information passing through her narrative that showed her personali...

Cover love and a book about a librarian won my heart from the start. Greta has spent a good chunk of her life working her way up to head librarian at her charmingly old local library. She's good at what she does, but she lacks some social qualities. You see, Greta is a little superficial, oblivio...

Often the best things in life are those that we take for granted. Will and Greta are best friends. They have a bond that has not been broken since elementary school. There is a problem, Greta is not attracted to Will because of his physical appearance, he is not thin. She gets ups...

Oh dear. Oh dear.
Great concept. Gorgeous, well thought out cover. If I had been in the store, I would have picked this book up and bought it on that basis alone. However, I am so very glad I did not.
There is much I have struggled with as I read this book. To start with the story telling is flat...
