Description

How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days gets a millennial makeover in this romantic comedy by USA Today best-selling author Andie J. Christopher.

"The way Jack sets out to win Hannah back is really the stuff of true romance." (NPR)

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 pièce de résistance: "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.

Fun Premise, Good Characters. Monolgues Hurt Pace.

I really wanted to like this, as it was recommended by a favorite author. This has a good premise and characters. But I couldn't finish the audiobook because the characters would revisit their inner angst over and over, and it just slowed down the pace until I finally had to stop listening. When there was dialogue, it was interesting, sometimes funny, so I stuck with it through 15 chapters. If I had the book, I probably would have liked it more, since I could just skip the repetitive parts.

One other note - at the beginning of the audiobook, the author does an introduction about why they wrote the book. I personally don't want to know what the author was trying to do until AFTER I've heard it for myself. I like to travel the journey, then discuss it. If you are like that, you may want to skip the author's intro.

Great Book

What a cute story, I found myself laughing out loud at points, saying awwww, and smiling hard. This book is a good choice for romantic comedy. I really enjoyed this book and hopes the author finds the love she has written about.

How to lose a guys in 10 days?

The book was a fun and easy listen and it kept me entertained the entire time, however it was almost too similar to how to lose a guy in 10 days (from the reverse angle), but a more up to date one. I enjoyed the narrator and the content but I just wish it wasn't as similar to the movie!

If you’re dating in the world today, get ready for this book to read your mail

Goodness. This book got all up in my feelings about dating in the year of our Lord 2019. Dating is terrible and people are terrible and both of these characters are imperfect but still love each other. There’s a LOT of groveling. Well, the appropriate amount. And professional success as well as success in love. Absolutely recommend.

Perhaps another round of edits?

I was excited to listen to this book because as a woman of color, I love finding a new contemporary multiracial romance novel. The overall premise of the book was fun but the way race was presented felt a bit uncomfortable. The author does preface the book by saying she was inspired to write it based on her own experiences, and unfortunately I think that might of been a detriment to the book. I really wanted to like the main character, Hannah, as I identified with her personal struggle to fit in one box. But as I reached the halfway point of the book I realized there were no redeeming or “good” characters of color, whereas white characters like Jack and Hannah’s friends are written as saintly figures. There are “bad” white characters, but there aren’t any good ones who are people of color. I don’t think this was a deliberate tactic by the author, but it does feel a bit off putting as a reader. And as I got further along in the book, some of Hannah’s rants (especially about Black people) began to feel like diary entries that should be shared with a mental health professional. There was also use of problematic language such as “caught red handed” which is well known for being racists towards indigenous and native peoples, that was a bit concerning. I really wanted to like this book and I think the narrator did a great job, but perhaps a sensitivity reader would have eliminated some of these faux pas.

It was fine.

The story was basically how to lose a guy in 10 days with the addition of ‘cis-gender’ and ‘toxic masculinity’ references. It was fine, but nothing everyone hasn’t heard/read/watched before.
