My absolute favorite thing about this book is the narration Andie J Christopher s writing style is snarky, quirky and hilarious and it speaks to my SOUL More to come closer to release date DNF 150 pagesI wanted to DNF this after the first chapter, that s how bad it was And I am so SAD, because this was one of my most anticipated romances of the year because I LOVE How To Lose a Guy In 10 Days But this book is just bad and the only thing about this story that I liked is that Hannah is biracial, I appreciate that representation and I think books need of it, but that s about it Here are my non spoilery thoughts I had while reading this book The writing is terrible, it reads sooo juvenile and immature and reminds me of The Proposal by Jasmine Guillory but even worse She s using him for a promotion, he s using her because he wants to write about politics but first his boss assigns him how to lose a girl, it s a little too on the nose for a retelling with the genders reversed He calls her a sexy rabid raccoon What the fuck How many times did they bring up his dick in the first two chapters Both of these characters are annoying as shit They try to have this witty banter but I lost track of how many times I rolled my eyes Why are they using words like bozos And friggin I haven t heard those words since middle school haha Why does she keep using the phrase panties magically disappearing all over town or something of that sort whenever she describes how attractive he is it s so cheesy Why is he calling her Duchess he s called her that four times now and it s not cute They have no chemistry at all This is a lot vulgar than I expected it to be with the cute illustrated cover, it s kind of like Fix Her Up in that way They both feel guilty about hurting the other one and their thoughts are so repetitive, they keep saying the same shit like she s so great, too bad I have to break her heart or he s the perfect man, too bad I am using him for a promotion over and over and OVER again This isn t just a How To Lose a Guy In 10 Days retelling, it feels like a rip off because it s way to on the nose, except for the fact that the movie is way better and these characters are obnoxious I should ve DNF ed this after the first chapter I m gonna stop reading this and watch the movie instead because I can t deal with this any I m so sad I didn t end up enjoying this because I had such HIGH HOPES going in, but this is one of the worst of the year for me Thanks to Berkley romance for an advanced copy Find all of my reviews at StarsThere was part of me that was really having an internal struggle about rating this so high because it was clearly a remake of But then I thought how many freaking PP retellings have I read answer infinity and it never seemed to bother me with any of those that they were based on another story so this one is getting nearly all the Starzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz because it was exactly what I wanted it to be.As I said before, this was How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days and thankfully is being marketed as just that It s just been turned on its ear a tad where leading male Jack is the one with one final How To assignment in hopes of propelling his journalism career to the next level where he ll be writing some meatier stories Hannah is his female counterpart and is an event planner who gets told by her boss she might want to, you know, at least have a boyfriend if she thinks she s going to move into the wedding arena and make partner in the company Both have two weeks to achieve their goal him to do everything from sending dick pics and introducing her to the parents nearly immediately in order to make her dump him her to ignore his manbearpig and Stage Five Clinger tendencies in order keep him on the line at least until the firm s big Halloween party Oh, and there s one other little tidbit Instead of our leading lady looking like She looks like REFRESHING Another difference This is like the third time in recent history I picked up a book I was just suuuuuuuuuure was going to be PG 13 that instead ended up steaming my glasses Trust me, I m not complaining If you are anything like me, this little book will have you going I m just sorry you have to wait until November for it to be released ARC provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Fake relationship trope written by a POC author, yessss and like, the whole paragraph below is goals Christoper tells EW she was inspired to write the novel after rewatching the 2003 rom com and thinking about the film in light of shifting gender dynamics and dating practices I decided to gender reverse it because a lot of the things guys do are things that put women off now, and there s been a slight shift in millennial dating, she says Women aren t doing that as much They re not thinking that way, like, I have to be the cool girl to keep the guy We re likely to say, Hey, guys, please stop sending dick pics because we will never date you if you do this I wanted to play with how things might have changed since the early 2000s Source
