First time reading this author. Cute story, kept me interested.
How to Choose a Guy in 10 Days by Lila Monroe is the first book in her brand new series, Chick Flick Club . A Series of romantic comedies surrounding a close group of friends who spend some quality time watching, you guessed it, chick flicks. Told in dual POV, this is the story of Gemma and Bigfoot, also known as Zach, her jerk neighbor.
Gemma is a stylist who has been offered a promotion. One caveat, it's a competition between her and her catty co-worker. Her job is to improve the Bigfoot lumberjack of a next door neighbor in the next ten days. Her promotion depends upon it. If only he would stop slamming the door in her face...
Zach has been living like a college frat boy for a while now and he's fine with it. Why his neighbor won't leave him alone is another problem. But it turns out he isn't as annoyed by her as he thought. Besides it's about time he found out who he really is when he isn't hiding behind his frat boy behavior and actually starts adulting for once.
Funny, sweet, romantic and sexy this is yet another smash hit from one of my favorite authors. The secondary characters are wonderful and I can't wait to get my hands on the next book in the series, You've Got Male. Enjoy!
I am seriously going to have to start a Lila Monroe quotes or witty sayings log as there are some good ones in her stories to include this one. Ms. Monroe has grown in her romcom writing to be a must click author each time I see a new release from her. Her plots are comical with witty banter and her female characters make me wish I had their flair and pizazz.
Every single time I start reading a Lila Monroe book, I know I’m going to not only enjoy it, but think about it well after I’ve finished.
Every. Single. Time.
And her latest romcom, How to Choose a Guy in 10 Days, showcases the exact reasons as to why I love her books!
Fun, flirty, with the perfect amount of humor and sexual tension, this book’s enticing storyline and unforgettable characters make it not only entertaining but heartwarmingly romantic!
After the very brief glimpse of HTCAGITD we get at the end of Man Candy, I couldn’t WAIT to read it! Gemma and Zach’s quirky and antagonistic neighborly “relationship” was just downright delightful. Their combative banter and seemingly polar opposite lifestyles infuse the story with wit and playfulness. The energetic connection between them sparks off the pages, eliciting a powerful intrigue and intimacy that thoroughly engages the reader from start to finish. And the transformation their relationship takes from enemies to friends to lovers was entirely smooth and seamless, matching the progression of the storyline flawlessly.
This fresh and lively new Chick Flick Club Series is one I’m super excited to continue reading! If the next books in the series are even remotely as fantastic as How to Choose a Guy in 10 Days, then I know I’m in for an entertaining and laugh-out-loud treat. If you’re new to Lila Monroe’s books, then there’s never been a better time to start reading than NOW!
A definite 5 star must read that does not disappoint!
Once again, another classic from Lila Monroe. Aside from the interesting story (make over a guy in 10 days, aka BigFoot), I completely fell in love with the characters, their interaction, and the changes that come over them. Not to mention the legit laugh out loud moments. I will ALWAYS read Lila’s books for the fact that aside from good stories with lots of heart, she makes me just burst into laughter, no matter where I am. Can’t wait for more!!!
Another great RomCom from Lila Monroe. This is the start of a new series spinning off of Lila Monroe’s Man Candy. The book centers around three friends, Gemma, Zoey and Eve. This is Gemma’s story. Gemma is working as a stylist for an up and coming company. Her company is expanding and Gemma and her rival at the company are competing for a promotion. They set up a bet to see who will win the promotion. The bet, make over a mess of a man, that the other one chooses. Whoever does a better job, wins the promotion. Gemma’s rival picks Zach, Gemma’s neighbor. Zach is a tall, hairy, slob of a man, who happens to be a manwhore. This is the setup for a fun update on My Fair Lady/Pygmalion, where the artist falls in love with their creation.
