Put Me in Detention
by Meghan Quinn
“You got married on your divorce-cation?”
That would unfortunately be correct.
I was hanging with the girls, celebrating my divorce when I saw him, my crush, sitting in the corner of the bar all alone. Being single and looking for a wild night, I asked him if he wanted to join me. To my delight, he said yes.
Drinks were consumed, fun was had and then . . . one drunken conversation with a cranky gondolier in Las Vegas led to an Uber lift through a drive-thru wedding chapel with the incredibly hot, British bad boy, Pike Greyson.
On paper, it seemed like I hit the jackpot. And if I wasn’t fresh from a toxic marriage, I would have absolutely noticed the finer things about him.
But I wanted nothing to do with being married, so when I arrived back home from my eventful weekend in Vegas, the last thing I expected to see was a new doting husband already moved in.
I asked for an annulment, he pulled a Ross Geller and said no.
That’s right, he said NO! Instead, he asked for three months to prove we could be good together.
Insanity clearly knocked him in the head and the only way I could convince him to give up on our sham of a marriage was to show him just how wrong we were for each other. Only problem with that was, he saw right through my every prank, every trick, and every yearning emotion I attempted to mask.

My Rate: 4/5 (This was a very fun read, like most of Meghan Quinn’s works. We have two people who separately are already fun and sweet and interesting, but them together is just “chef’s kiss”. From a plot standpoint, I believe 80% of this book was a bit predictable. We knew the conflict, we knew what was gonna cause the whole fight at the end of the book, so I believe it could have been a bit more “original”, I kept waiting for a plot twist, but it never came. However the last 20% of the book was a complete surprise, an entirely new thing and I loved that part, and all the groveling, so, in my opinion, it saved the book (from a plot standpoint). I also want to point out that I didn’t see the need for both of these characters revealing at 60% that they are both millionaires, it honestly felt unrealistic and forced.)
Feminist rate: 4/5 (We have a strong woman, who is in search of her independence and her own life, without a man, and I’m all for that, she is a survivor of many things, depression, suicidal toughs and attempts, abusive relationships, that were not only with her husband, but other members of her family, so the fact that she is so fun and positive most of the time is amazing. And we have the almost perfect man, he is respectful, he is sweet, he is grateful for the things she does for him, and for the most part, he doesn’t seem to be affected by toxic masculinity (the vibrator talk), which is just amazing. However, I would have appreciated some distance time between these two characters, like I said before, I love that Cora wants her independence and wants to find out who she is outside of a relationship, and she doesn’t do that, so I would have loved to see her work on herself before going back to Pike. However, I love all the banter e “pranks” and their dynamic is just the best. And last but not least, I love his friendship with Keiko, I love that his best friend is a woman and we don’t have jealousy or any problems there)
Recommend this to people who love a rom-com, with lots of steam and a good Stern Brunch Daddy hero
This book was funny, sweet, and steamy, it had deep moments, it approached heavy topics, but with lightness and humor, while also giving a great role model and great examples of how healthy relationships (should) work (without the lying part). It was a mix of all my favorite things, deep character development, great secondary characters, lots of steam, lots of humor, and lots of fun. It was a bit predictable, but despite that, it was a very enjoyable read and I recommend it to anyone who loves romance, romcoms, sweet heroes, and strong heroines.
If you want to buy this book, it is now live on Amazon. You can also add it to your shelf on Goodreads and see what other people thought about it!
Well, that is all for today, I hope you like this post, hope you enjoy this book as much as I did. Feel free to leave your opinion about it in the comments and I will see you next time!
Bye sassy people!
- I know that some comments I make about decent guys on my posts are the bare minimum a guy should do, so no, they don’t deserve to be treated like gods for doing the minimum, but at the same time, I’ve read a lot of sexist books and I appreciate authors who make characters that can serve as role models and examples of how a decent guy acts and what a loving and respectful relationship looks like. I believe we should always encourage these authors and bring attention to the ones that still write sexist characters and stories.
- I make a lot of comments about sexism and healthy role models in books, but a lot of times these characteristics don’t make the book a bad book and definitely don’t make the author a bad author. Please never shame these authors and these books for these comments, I simply feel that we need to have awareness of the less than ideal situations some books bring us, and not use the romanticized problem as examples of what a relationship should be. Most of these authors are still amazing, and the content they write doesn’t reflect directly with their personal views and opinions. Always make sure to respect and be kind to everyone, even while criticizing their content.

One of my goals in analysing my readings was to talk about important topics, like feminist and consent, because literature, art and culture influence us, and I believe we should always encorage authors who talk about this topics.
