How To Lose a Guy in 10 Days gets a millennial makeover in this romantic comedy by USA Today bestselling author Andie J. Christopher.
Jack Nolan is a gentleman, a journalist, and unlucky in love. His viral success has pigeon-holed him as the how-to guy for a buzzy, internet media company instead of covering hard-hitting politics. Fed up with his fluffy articles and the app-based dating scene as well, he strikes a deal with his boss to write a final piece de resistance: How to Lose a Girl. Easier said than done when the girl he meets is Hannah Mayfield, and he’s not sure he wants her to dump him.
Hannah is an extremely successful event planner who’s focused on climbing the career ladder. Her firm is one of the most prestigious in the city, and she’s determined to secure her next promotion. But Hannah has a bit of an image problem. She needs to show her boss that she has range, including planning dreaded, romantic weddings. Enter Jack. He’s the perfect man to date for a couple weeks to prove to her boss that she’s not scared of feelings.
Before Jack and Hannah know it, their fake relationship starts to feel all too real—and neither of them can stand to lose each other.
This very funny and fast-paced romance is a retelling of ‘How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. Here, it’s the guy who is trying to lose the girl. Hannah has sworn off men, and Jack is portrayed as the perfect man who really knows how to treat women right. He is a journalist and is assigned to write an article on how to lose a girl.
This book is told in alternating points of view. It is a fast-paced, modern romance with tons of funny banter and some VERY steamy scenes. Although both Jack and Hannah are playing games, they are genuinely attracted to each other and actually neither one wants to lose the other. I loved that Hannah was biracial, and I adore seeing more diversity in my romance stories!
A very sexy contemporary romance, this book is mostly a romantic comedy but there are definitely some serious moments. I really liked the author’s breezy writing style and look forward to reading more books from her. If you are in the mood for a modern, very sexy romantic comedy, then you’ll love this book!
