About the Book:

Whoever said the quest for love wasn’t comical never met Charlene Randall. Charley is looking for a man who wants to start a family, a man who will take her to the temple. Problem is, she has never dated a man for longer than three months. When she reads an internet article called “Ten Ways to Win Your Man,” she decides to try it on her new coworker, Maxwell Harrington. Max was her crush in high school, but the superstar sports anchorman doesn’t even remember her.

Enter ladies’ man Damien Giovianni, Charley’s handsome neighbor, who agrees to help her win Max over. What follows is a hilarious story of mishaps and misunderstandings where Charley learns that what she really needs may be right in front of her.

My Review:

Poor Charlie can't seem to get anything right. All her efforts to win over the new guy at the office have ended in disaster, but she's not giving up. And with the help of her neighbor, Damien, how could she lose? What she doesn't know is that Damien is falling in love with her. The typical triangle love story, you may say, but Marie Higgins has done an excellent job of making it unique and funny. It's been a long time since I've read a book that made me really laugh and this one did just that. While my heart had a soft spot for the characters who were trying their best to find love, the quirky little mishaps mingled withing the story tickled my funny bone.

Well done! I highly recommend this book to anyone who needs a quick, lighthearted read that will make you laugh out loud. Just the thing to cheer your heart and perk up your day.
