Beck comes into the bookstore where Joe Goldberg works and instantly he is in love. He Googles the name on the credit card she used to pay for the books she wanted. Her Facebook and Twitter tell Joe everything he needs to know - who she is, where she lives, and where she's going to be so that they run into each other (coincidentally, of course)
Beck loves attention, especially from other men and the more negative attention, the better. But Joe is patient. He does what needs to be done to insert himself in the role of boyfriend and to ensure that she ends up loving him as much as he loves her.
I didn't care for this book starting off, not because it was second-person narrative but because it seemed like Joe took one breath and away he went. But I came to really enjoy his candor and humour.
