Note: I received this copy of How to Win a Guy in 10 Dates by Jane Linfoot for free through the #SexMeUpReadathon from Jane Linfoot. The opinions and thoughts I share in this review are my own.
How to Win a Guy is a contemporary romance story, coming in at an estimated 200 pages – a rough guess going by the percentage bar on my Kindle. It is the story of millionaire playboy Ed and burlesque dance teacher Millie. Neither of the two characters are without their faults or secrets. Ed, a guy who relishes a challenge is bet by his sister Cassie and best friend Will that he can’t go through 10 dates with the same woman – something he has never done before. It must also include a weekend away and meeting families. After a month of looking for a woman to date, Ed finally comes across men-aren’t-in-my-life-plan Millie when her horse throws her after an explosion. Following through the dates, the two get closer and closer together until a weekend in Provence takes the relationship much further.
All in all I really enjoyed this book. It was an easy read taking only took a few hours to get through, but also not being a taxing read as some books are. I think I would have enjoyed it more had I not read another by the same author only 10 days before. The book followed many of the same lines a contemporary romance does, but was pulled up by the characters and writing style.
An enjoyable read for a rainy day – as this has been.
