Blurb: “I’ve discovered the secret to successful singledom. I’m acting like a man. And it’s working.

After breaking up with her boyfriend of, well, forever, Abigail Wood must learn how to be single from scratch. Her dating skills are abysmal, and she ricochets from disaster to disaster – until Robert, one of London’s most notorious lotharios, agrees to coach her.

With his advice, she learns to navigate the bastard-infested waters of the bar scene and practices the art of being bulletproof. The new Abigail is cocky, calm, composed…but what happens when she meets her match?

Review: Here we have a page by page low down of insecurities and dating dilemmas that many of us girls face. I read this in one sitting as it had me smiling, giggling and surprisingly adoring the cheesiness of it.

It was pretty obvious at the start of the book to me that Abi and Robert would get together, but it still had me giddy with excitement for the actual stages that lead up to it.I adored Abi’s naivety to dating, robs take the piss attitude and how friendship was cherished.

In my opinion, if you can put a book down after finishing with a sly smile then its a gooden.This, you will be putting down with that said sly smile. This is the first Gemma Burgess book I’ve read and I must admit I liked the easy manner in which it reads and the whole general feel to the story. I will most definitely be purchasing more from her.
