Review: Oh Henry by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff

My name is Henry Walton, and though I’ve been called many things throughout my life—tree trunk, moose, walrus—I am now six foot five, solid muscle, and the hottest defensive end in the NFL college draft. This is the moment I’ve been waiting for: fame, women, and glory.

Just one problem: I’m suddenly in a bad slump. And it started the moment I got dumped by Elle, the nerdy goddess with thick glasses, a smokin’ hot body, and a genius IQ.
So what gives? We only dated for a few weeks, and it’s not like I’ve missed her. (Much.) Regardless, all the facts point to one conclusion. Elle is my lucky nerd-charm.

Call me superstitious, but I have to get her back before I lose everything. Even if she’s the last girl I should want and she now hates my guts.

Review by Jen Skewes

Oh Henry is the second book in the Oh Hell No series.  I really enjoyed the first book and could not wait for Henry’s book.  I always love the wit and humor that we get in Ms. Pamfiloff’s books and this one was no different.  But at the same time I think the author stepped it up a notch because this one was emotional and at times a bit angsty. I loved it and really enjoyed the relationship between Henry and Elle

Henry is in his last year of college, and hopefully on his way to signing an NFL contract.  It has been his dream.  He loves the game and he is good at what he does.  But lately things have been a little off and he realizes that Elle is to blame.  Henry and Elle have been having a casual fling but when it comes time to get serious, everything just falls apart.  Elle feels that they will never make it together because they are too different.  She has no desire to be the girlfriend of a pro football player.  But ever since they ended things, Henry has been off his game and he thinks it has everything to do with the fact that she is not in his life any more.  He misses her and wants her back. He will go through great lengths to win her back, no matter how embarrassing it is for him.  But it may take a lot for him to prove to Elle that they do belong together, that they fit perfectly.  Will it be too late?

I loved the two of them together, the sexy football player and the nerdy girl.  They were just so perfect together.  It was the perfect blend.  I loved the humor that Ms. Pamfiloff delivered, which is something that I always look forward to from her.  But this book seemed to be so much more than that.  There were issues and obstacles that Henry and Elle had to face.  There were decisions that needed to be made that could destroy everything.  At times it was emotional and also angsty, because I really had not idea how this one would play out.  There were people that I despised and felt so bad for Henry because he was the one that had to deal with them, and suffered because of it.  I think what I loved the most was watching the sexy jock fall for the nerdy girl.  It was sweet and loving and just adorable. 

There is a twist or two that was thrown in there.  And honestly there was one that I really thought I saw coming until I realized that when it did come, it was at the end and I now have to wait for book 3 to get answers.  Well Played Mimi Jean Pamfiloff, well played.
