I picked up How to Lose a Guy in 10 Dates as a free read and it was a terrific find The circle I belong to doesn t typically give a lot of detail on the books up for grabs, so basically it s like picking the grab bag gift during the holidays You look through the pile and try to judge your gifts contents based on the outside wrapping I have to admit picking out a free book, just like a Christmas grab bag gift, the pretty packaging doesn t always match the inside content However, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Dates was not a white elephant gift it was pretty packaging and perfect gift all in one.How to Lose a Guy in 10 Dates is a story full of heart, charm, and lots of horrible first dates Angela Hudson is a single, divorced mother with a seven year old son and her high school reunion is fast approaching Due to her most likely to succeed status a decade ago Angela is ashamed to show up with a dismantled marriage and a barely thriving business Desperate she sets up an online dating account and so begins the first of many extremely bad dates.Drew Scheffield was taking a break from NYC and working in his brothers coffee shop in Oklahoma He was there to witness Angela s first disastrous date, along with her second, and her third, etc He shouldn t be jealous of the men she was meeting considering he was only in town for a few months, but something about Angela and her son, Thad, drew him in over and over again and he was a goner even before he knew he was in the game.How to Lose a Guy in 10 Dates was funny, romantic, and enjoyable to read from start to finish Within the first page I was drawn in by Lacy s witty writing and unique charm By the end if the first chapter I knew I Lacy Williams would not be a one time author read for me I am looking forward to finding her other books. Such a great story about two vulnerable people who don t mean to fall for each other but do There are several nightmare dates Angela perseveres through in search of a decent date for her school reunion, but it s mysterious Drew that catches her eye, and the chemistry between them is great I loved how he interacted with both Angela and her son, and even though he has to process the standard fears of a widower thinking of starting a new relationship, the story wraps up with a sweet happily ever after. I was made aware of this book recently and decided to give it a shot It was a well written, engaging book that had depth and charm in abundance It was heartwarming, humorous and tear jerking all at once It was a real joy to read this The characters had depth and were charming, everything they dealt with was heartfelt and dealt with in a sensitive way I look forward to reading from this author. Cute, quick read You really feel for Angela I would have given up if I was her The book did a pretty good depiction of dating once you get older and or have children Your priorities change and you have to really look at a person before you become invested. A little too short for my liking but it wasn t bad It felt like a novella, so I didn t have time to really get to know the characters.
