Review: How to Lose a Guy in 10 Dates by Lacy Williams

how-lose-guyHow to Lose a Guy in 10 Dates was filled with humor and heart. This sweet story caught me within its pages right away and didn’t let go till the very end.

I loved the way the author included humorous question and answer blurbs from the various online dates that Angela was considering. It was the perfect way to start each chapter.

I really liked Angela’s character. She was a loving mom, a kind person, and she questioned whether she was worthy of love after her failed marriage. Drew was also a wonderful character. He brought a lot of heart to the story. It was hard to watch as he struggled with grief and confusion regarding his feelings for Angela. The author handled these conflicting emotions very well and provided a wonderful second chance to two very likable characters.

how-lose-guyWith their ten-year high school reunion on the horizon, four girlfriends make a pact to find the perfect guy—online. But nothing about online dating is simple…

Single mom Angela Hudson thought she was ready to dip her toe in the dating waters again after her marriage imploded, but as dates #1, #2 and #3 turn out disastrous, she wonders if this is really worth it. Especially when she’s more attracted to the handsome coffeeshop barista than any of her dates…

Drew Scheffield is only in town for the summer. He hoped working in his brother’s coffeeshop would distract him from the grief of losing his young wife. But as he gets to know Angela and sees her dating guys #4, #5 and #6, he discovers his heart isn’t as dead as he thought it was…

As Angela’s dates #7, #8 and #9 go wrong, she and Drew get close–even though she knows he’s leaving. Can Drew open his heart to love again, or will Angela lose the perfect guy in 10 dates?
