⚪️Blurb: Rule 1: Never ask him on a first date. Rule 2: Laugh admiringly at all his jokes. Rule 3: Always leave him wanting more.

. . . wtf?!

Have you heard of The Rules of Engagement? It’s a book that promises to teach you to find the man of your dreams in ten easy steps. Unsurprisingly, I don’t own a copy. What is it, 1892?

But I’m a journalist, and I’ve promised to follow it to the letter and write about the results. Nevermind that my friends think I’m insane, I’m stalking men all over town and can’t keep my mouth shut at the best of times.

My name is Cat Buchanan. I’m thirty-six years old and live with my daughter in Glasgow. I’ve been single for six years, but that’s about to change. After all, I’m on a deadline.

I Followed the Rules and this is what happened.

⚪️My Review: And she’s done it again!

Fast, sharp, and absolutely hilarious. I didn’t think Joanna Bolouri could top her debut novel The List, but I was so wrong. I Followed The Rules pushes boundaries and is brutally honest. It is excellent!

Have you ever read a book and knew the heroine could easily be your best mate? Well I am head over heels in love with Cat and her swearing ways, she so could be my best mate. (Sorry Becki). She’s un-fucking-believable! She is the ultimate heroine.

This book is just amazing! It really is. No, really, it is! You have to grab yourself a copy. 

I can not wait to see what Joanna Bolouri comes out with next. She’s fast becoming an author I have a huge crush on.
