My name is Calliope and "I bone for a living." Kidding. I am studying to be a paleontologist though. It's the only thing I've ever wanted to be, and I have finally landed the perfect museum internship to make all of my dino-loving dreams come true. 

Trouble is, everyone wants me to be a gentle, loving sort of creature, but I'm more of the T-Rex type by nature - the kind who is determined to stomp and tear her way through any obstacle in order to get what she wants. 

But when a sexy, rumbly-voiced astronomer plummets into my orbit and threatens to break open my hard little heart, my career and my whole way of looking at the world is suddenly on the line. 

The dinosaurs didn't see their asteroid coming. 

And I sure as hell wasn't prepared for mine.

    Calliope’s thoughts and interactions with people were ridiculous. I really tried to keep reading because I wanted to see where things went with Ralph, but I couldn’t get halfway through it. All of her conversations made me cringe. She would talk nonstop and actually cut people off like their thoughts didn’t matter. I think the author was going for quirky and cute but it was just off-putting.
  • Has this author ever listened to humans talking? Seems unlikely.

    Weird dialogue. And not “these characters are smart and they speak in an intelligent way that I don’t understand” but in the “six pages of pure back and forth dialogue cause me to question my own sanity and if this author has ever had a conversation with someone”

    I absolutely disliked Calliope’s character! I see what the author was going for, but she was rude and acted like the world revolved around her with zero sense of consequences. It just turned me off completely and I waited a few chapters hoping I could get into the story but I simply couldn’t.

    “And the kicker is they almost always do it for love. They meet someone and fall in love, then give up everything else they said they wanted.” Flirtasaurus by Erin Mallon was a fun debut novel! The characters were quirky, flawed, and relatable, and I love that it featured a woman in a science field. At times, I found myself laughing out loud at the awkward banter between Calliope and Ralph and appreciating the sweet moments between the nerdy characters. Overall a light and enjoyable read!
