Review:

How to Win a Guy in 10 Dates was about commitment-phobe, doesn’t know what love is, Ed Mitchum, as he attempts to go on ten dates with the same woman as part of a bet set by his sister and best friend. With some interesting twists mixed in too, this book was really enjoyable.

The story flowed well – it was light hearted, fun, flirty and entertaining. Jane Linfoot writes the sort of books I love – fast paced, saucy and smile-inducing. How to Win a Guy in 10 Dates was exactly that for me and I found it hard not to laugh at some of the dialogue and scenarios the main characters were involved in.

I loved Millie – she was feisty and independent and it’s not often I’m that drawn to a female main character but Millie was a memorable one for me. Even from the way she was introduced, I just knew she was going to be a fun character. Ed, on the other hand… Damn him and his good looks because he was so frustrating! He could be extremely grumpy and full of himself and I wasn’t much of a fan of his. I did love reading the chemistry between him and Millie though and liked seeing him change throughout the book to the point where I was actually rooting for him, irritating as he was.

How to Win a Guy in 10 Dates was light, quirky and engaging. I’d recommend it as a great choice for fun-filled romance lovers with lots of chemistry and entertainment. It was impossible not to like.

Rating:
*I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

About the Author:

Jane Linfoot writes fun, flirty fiction, with feisty heroines and a bit of an edge. She lives in a mountain kingdom in Derbyshire, England, where her family and pets are kind enough to ignore the domestic chaos – happily, they are in walking distance of a supermarket. She enjoys writing romance because it means she gets to wear pretty shoes instead of wellies. She loves hearts, flowers, happy endings, all things vintage, most things french. When she’s not on facebook, and can’t find an excuse for shopping, she’ll be walking, or gardening. On days when she wants to be really scared, she rides a tandem.
