Wes writes dating advice for guys, think Carrie Bradshaw. He has an assignment to find a woman, make her fall for him, and document the steps along the way, think the reverse of the movie “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days”. Wes, who has a job, college degree, and actually seems to be a great guy, meets June July (yes, her middle name is July....eye roll). June (h) is a wanna be broadway actress/dog walker/part-time doll clothing seamstress. She is 25 and apparently still trying to figure her life out....another eye roll. I have no idea why authors insist on writing about heroines being quirky and scattered. Basically, Wes and June have nothing in common. Maybe that is why I felt zero chemistry between them.
This story just drags on and on with Wes spending almost half of the book running into June, and asking her for her phone number. She doesn’t have a cell phone and I think somewhere around 50% of the book, she finally gives him her landline number. Around 70% they share their first kiss. If you are hoping for a sizzling sex scene, you will be waiting until 80%, and since I was skimming pages at this point, I don’t remember much about it. Also, this entire book, except for 2 chapters towards the end, are told from Wes’ POV. If you prefer dual POV, you will be disappointed.
This was a miss for me, but hoping Meghan Quinn’s next book will be much better!
This follows Wes, a so-called “Modern Gentleman,” who writes articles encouraging men to embrace a “gentleman on the streets, alpha in the sheets” mentality. But when Wes’ boss insists that he start infusing personal experiences into his writing, it puts Wes in a bad spot. He’s got to find a woman to date… and he can’t tell her anything about the articles. Despite the fact that Wes’ deception is destined to blow up in his face, he starts dating a woman who proves to be more than he bargained for.
I always love Quinn’s books but her comedy is what really pulls me in, and this has that in spades. Wes thinks he’s cool and sophisticated, but it’s all of the bumps in the road that make this a memorable story. There’s basically zero angst, just funny antics and a lot of lighthearted moments that make the pages fly by. And I loved the fact that it’s a slow burn, with a hero who isn’t a jerk (he’s perhaps a little naive) and a romance that focuses on the emotional connection. If I have one complaint, it would be that I wanted more of June and an ending that didn’t feel quite so rushed, but it was truly a fun, playful read from start to finish. I was lucky enough to receive an ARC via Candi Kane PR (then purchased it for my collection) and am voluntarily leaving a review of this rom com.
Wes writes a sought-after advice column called The Modern Gentleman, because well he is The Modern Gentleman, and he’s going to put his skills to the test. Enter June Lacey. All the skills Wes thought he had she blows out of the water. She’s quirky and hilarious, and not your typical girl. June has no idea that Wes is the Modern Gentleman, and when she finds out, let’s just say she is none too pleased. Can Wes make it right, or will June never forgive him?
Hilarious. I didn’t even make it out of the prologue, and I was laughing out loud and poor Wes. Seriously, every single book that Meghan writes full of laugh out loud moments that you can’t get enough of. This is a lighthearted rom-com and the banter is out of this world hilarious. Wes and June are a story I won’t soon forget. Meghan has an amazing ability to draw her readers into the story and make you root for even the secondary characters to get their own stories. Roman and Caden, I’m begging for them to get their own stories! Meghan rocked this book, and I can’t wait for her next release!
It’s easy to make rules or write out steps. But do those actually work? Soon Wes learns that he can’t lump the whole population in the same category. Not all rules will apply, really there are no actual rules to dating because you can’t predict how it will all turn out.
I loved Wes and June. I felt they did have that connection. And it even made it much better since they took it slow. They really got to know each other on a deeper level, just like all of Meghan’s books. You can’t help but love all the characters. The main characters, the secondary characters, and the animals. It all made this perfect little story of these two, who were meant to be together.
Overall, Five Boundless Stars.
