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

Andie J Christopher has written a fun retelling of one of my all time favorite movies How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days The book put a bit of a twist on it, this time it is the guy that is trying to lose the girl and it is the girl trying to prove that she can be in a relationship This was just a Playful light hearted story Full of sass, Snark, steam, and four letter words Jack and Hannah meet one night at a bar, there is instant chemistry, but neither of them are looking for a relationship The Andie J Christopher has written a fun retelling of one of my all time favorite movies How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days The book put a bit of a twist on it, this time it is the guy that is trying to lose the girl and it is the girl trying to prove that she can be in a relationship This was just a Playful light hearted story Full of sass, Snark, steam, and four letter words Jack and Hannah meet one night at a bar, there is instant chemistry, but neither of them are looking for a relationship The night they meet they share an amazing kiss, exchange numbers, yet still they resist Then Jack s boss gives him and opportunity If he can write an article on how to lose a girl in two weeks, then he will be given the opportunity to write a political column Similarly Hannah who is an event planner is wanting to start planning weddings When her boss implies that she s not the right girl to plan weddings, because she s not even in a relationship, Hannah lets it slip that she in fact is now in a relationship SO now both Jack and Hannah are using one another to bolster their careers The problem is they both start to catch real feelings for one another Told from both Jack and Hannah s perspectives, I really got invested in this seemingly doomed romance Hannah was strong, smart, kind of a bitch on wheels, but she definitely had a sweet vulnerable side Jack was such a good guy, A little clueless, but so authentic If I had any complaint about this book it would be that Jack doing this was really out of character for him, but I guess it needed to happen for the book to work Loved all the secondary characters in the story Jack had the most amazing family even his mom who left him when he was younger was a great character Hannah s BFF Sasha was amazing, I d love to see a story where she gets her HEA This book just made me smile and feel all warm and gooey inside There is some definite sizzle in the story and these characters do like to throw around those for letter words, so if that s not your thing this might not work for you.This book in emojis Big thanks to Berkley for my copy of this book DNF at 37% chapter 11 I wasn t enjoying this as it was repetitive, childish and mean I haven t seen the film how to lose a guy in 10 days for many years, and don t know how I would rate it now, but I liked it then This book is way too close to that film, but gender swapped I do remember the film being very lighthearted, but this just felt wrong To make a connection with someone, know they ve been hurt in the past and have their barriers up, but then progress with dating them and romancing DNF at 37% chapter 11 I wasn t enjoying this as it was repetitive, childish and mean I haven t seen the film how to lose a guy in 10 days for many years, and don t know how I would rate it now, but I liked it then This book is way too close to that film, but gender swapped I do remember the film being very lighthearted, but this just felt wrong To make a connection with someone, know they ve been hurt in the past and have their barriers up, but then progress with dating them and romancing them for the advancement of your career And to assume once it s over she will forgive you HmmmThe character s internal monologues were so repetitive too.As always I appreciate a diverse romance, and Hannah s experiences of being biracial definitely addeddepth to the story However there are way better romances out there I was bored and didn t want to pick it up Sorry not for me Many thanks to Edelweiss for making this e arc available to download.

novel Not the Girl You Marry was a fun book to read, but one that ultimately altered too much of the central aspect to the original movie to work for me Still, there s a lot to enjoy here so let s dive in I think there are lots of readers who will and have loved this book, and there were definitely things I liked about it as well The movie is one of my favorites, and this book somehow managed to be almost exactly like it, and nothing like it at all It was fun to see what aspects the author wanted to re imagine But that brings me to my first point, and one I couldn t have anticipated until I saw how it played out The gender reversal of the original story is problematic it was a fun idea, but one that did not work for me When I read it, I didn t enjoy seeing Jack emulate the kind of toxic, misogynistic behavior that men treat their partners with all of the time It wasn t cute, or easy to stomach The original worked because they both in some ways pretended to be into one another but didn t realize that they actually were Here, I struggled watching Hannah pretend that Jack s bad behavior wasn t a problem I didn t like watching her play it cool when he did truly appalling and damaging things I also felt like I struggled to see Jack as the nice guy that he was, when he was treating Hannah so poorly I was left with the impression that he thought wayhighly of himself than he deserved.Let s talk about Hannah for a moment I loved her, and I loved that the author chose to make her biracial We saw quite a bit play out in terms of how some biracial women may experience dating, and I thought that as great to see in a main stream contemporary romance novel Hannah herself is tough on the outside, but vulnerable inside I also loved her friendship with Sasha, who was a really fun character as well And I think these two are where Christopher s writing really shone in this book I also have to say, the event planning space was a lot of fun, and I enjoyed the story of the wedding she was trying to help plan.Many of these scenes were almost exactly out of the movie, and I think that s where you see some readers saying this was too much like the film I thought those scenes were a lot of fun For instance, in the big party when everything comes to a head, I thought it was a fun re telling of the original movie and I was so glad to see that scene included The problem is, I learned through reading this that delving into the mindset of the two main characters reveals a troubling aspect that the film was able to gloss over Here we see chapter after chapter of how much these characters like one another and don t want to go forward with their manipulation And yet, they still do it And somehow, seeing how much they didn t want to do it took a bit of the fun out of the plot for me The movie worked because neither had real feelings at first They met because of their work assignments Here, they actually meet and form a connection before their assignments, and it bothered me.Let s get to the steam there was quite a bit of it I don t mind some steam in books, but this one had a vulgarity to it that just didn t resonate with me Maybe a bit too much bluntness about some private aspects of people s body parts that I just didn t need The sexual tension actually seemed to be the main driver of the plot here, and it left the whole book feeling like a fifty shades of gray fan fiction of How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days In the original movie, the sexual tension never felt like a key driver of their behavior.So what to make of this Here s my take this is a fun idea for a book and I think lots of readers will love it In every way that the movie put the com in rom com, this went the opposite direction, and I think a lot of contemporary romance readers like when the steam level is ratcheted up as it is in this book For me, I think because that was so different from the original story, it didn t work as well But that is just one reader s opinion There was also a lot that I did love about this book Thank you to Berkley for my copy Opinions are my own If you loved How to Lose a Guy in 10 days and decide to pick up this book, two things can happen you either going to love this hard edged gender swapped retelling, or you are going to quietly put itaside, get comfortable on the sofa and get ready to re watch Matthew McConaughey and Kate Hudson spin their magic tale As I am a kind of girl who always chooses a book over a movie and did not swoon over the original rom com, so I was actually quite open to whatever Andie J Christopher was going If you loved How to Lose a Guy in 10 days and decide to pick up this book, two things can happen you either going to love this hard edged gender swapped retelling, or you are going to quietly put itaside, get comfortable on the sofa and get ready to re watch Matthew McConaughey and Kate Hudson spin their magic tale As I am a kind of girl who always chooses a book over a movie and did not swoon over the original rom com, so I was actually quite open to whatever Andie J Christopher was going to make out of the original story The first chapter left me a bit perplexed Hanna seemed so angry and aggressive about the whole dating non dating issue and menfolk in general, while being understanding and supportive with her extra feminine friend Sasha Hanna definitely had the qualities I like she was fiercely loyal and independent, and yet, so confused about what she wanted Hanna s ex boyfriend Noah, who I never forgave until the end of the book despite the author s best attempts to give him some redeeming qualities, had an issue with Hanna being biracial not black enough to make a part of a power couple , Hanna being too spontaneous and honest not good enough to make a good wife for a lawyer or a politician Noah told her she was not a kind a girl a guy would marry, and Hannabelieved him Two years later Hanna, who has been on an extended dating hiatus I think it s a great idea for somebody who needs to clear their ideas , accidentally meets Jack Nolan in a bar They click, and even share a spectacular kiss and a few cute puppy pictures the day after that, but it s clear given the fact that neither of them wants to date at the moment, they are not going to give in to the chemistry and attraction they felt for each other Until Hanna s boss challenges her to find and keep a boyfriend for two weeks to prove she can do romantic if she wants to get out of planning sports events and start organising weddings Plus, Jack s boss gives him a new assignment to write a how to article on losing a girlfriend in two weeks Here is the thing The original movie already had the whole gender stereotype inverted It is usually us, girls women, who try to circumguess and please our dates to keep the guy, hoping for a white wedding sometime in a not so distant future, and it is men who still have an upper hand in the dating game That s why the movie was so funny Herewe revert back to the traditional gender role behaviour, no matter how much we might hate it Jack is supposed to be a good guy whose girlfriends keep dumping him, although he always puts their needs first, and he really needs to work out why And he plans to do it by agreeing to do everything to lose and hurt Hanna, who he professes to like, to prove to himself that he can put his career first Complicated, to put it mildly The book is engaging, although I kept asking myself the big question any reader asks about the characters can I relate to them yes, I had Hanna s experience of a toxic relationship that made me think hard about what I wanted from life and whether I wanted romance at all Plenty of people also share Jack and Hanna s story of having divorced parents, and growing up without one of the parents being present in their life What I found the most interesting and authentic in the book was the fact that Hanna is biracial and her reflections on her identity and the role it played in her romantic history I am left with mixed feelings about this re telling, but I m sure there are other readers who are going to like it and be entertained by the trope of a fake relationship that grows into somethingThank you to Edelweiss and Berkley for the ARC provided in exchange for an honest opinion I m probably not going to finish this book I m almost 25% in and it s just chock full of anti Black micro aggressions Is this author serious She literally couldn t look the white man in the face as she told him she was half Black IS THIS THE STATE OF ROMANCE AT BERKELY If I have read the

is for someone to on the one hand not worry about her race and also realize that she s just like the white girls they ve dated Who green lit this anti Black racist mess and why the hell aren tpeople talking about this The hero is white and bland and apparently that makes him the kind of guy who wouldn t date a girl Hannah unless it was a fetish That s what Hannah thinks at their meet cute She doesn t need a boyfriend she needs a therapist and the whole premise of this book is gross Not the Girl You Marry is a fun rom com reminiscent of How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, which I admittedly have not seen since its release Hannah and Jake start a fake relationship that becomes real, very real It was fun and engaging, and Hannah and Jake are such a cute couple Overall, it delivered all I expect in a rom com, and it definitely left me wanting to watch How to Lose a Guy again soon so I can see the similarities between the book and the movie I received a complimentary copy from the Not the Girl

another chance after DNFing the ARC, but my opinion didn t really change and I almost wish I hadn t bothered This did get better after the point that I DNF d, but I definitely didn t like it enough

always up for a good time She s known for planning wild events, where people are often loud and boisterous She s not into relationships because she s had her heart brokenthan a few times and she doesn t need a man.Jack is almost too handsome for his own good He has always wanted to be a serious journalist but instead the magazine he works for realizes he has a face for video, so they have him concentrate on fluff pieces for their video channel, mostly listicles He also has sworn off relationships for a while because it seems like he s always wanted too much from the women he s been with.When Hannah and Jack meet in a bar, there s no denying their strong attraction to one another Both realize, however, they need the other to further their careers Hannah has to convince her boss she s in a relationship to be considered for a promotion, because how could someone against relationships oversee weddings Jack needs to write an article about how to screw up a relationship in order to be granted the opportunity to write aserious story he hopes will take him off the video path forever So both pursue the other full stop, even while feeling guilty about what they re doing.This is super steamy and fun, and things unfold pretty much how you d expect them to I liked how Christopher explored someserious issues, like racial identity, in the midst of it all My one criticism is that things took a little longer to unfold than they do in most rom coms, and I just wanted everything out in the open Once I know what is going to happen in a book, I just want it to happen Check out my
