    help

    I wondered if there were ever times when Dad didnt sound like hed just escaped from a Jane Austen novel. It was weird to think of my superpractical mom falling for a guy like him. Shed never struck me as the type to go for a smooth talker.?? Of course, I never thought Id fall for a pretty boy who was secretly a Prodigium-killer, so what the heck did I know?

    Re: help

    she'd never struck me as = I'd never thought of her as/ I'd never realised she was/ it didn't seem likely that she would be

    to go for = to be attracted to, to fall for

    A "smooth talker" is a charmer. He's someone (it's usually a man) who knows all the right things to say to make people feel good ;) They often make good salesmen, or have a lot of girlfriends.
