Book Shelf: How to Choose a Guy in 10 Days (Chick Flick Club #1) by Lila Monroe

The only thing more hilarious than the movies is… real life?! Fall in love with the hot new romantic comedy series from USA Today bestselling author, Lila Monroe!

Stylist Gemma Jones is competing for a once-in-a-lifetime promotion. All she has to do is take some fashion-backward guy from geek to GQ-worthy. The only problem? The man in question is her hairy manwhore of a next-door neighbor. AKA Bigfoot.

Zach Morrison has zero interest in being Gemma’s makeover mannequin. Sure, it’s fun getting his smart-mouthed neighbor all riled up, but after cashing out of his tech start-up and going through an ugly break-up, he’s taking a permanent vacation. If he wants to wear sweatpants and sleep on a mattress in the corner of an empty apartment—

OK. Maybe he needs a little push in the right direction. But as Gemma races the clock to win her bet, she finds that Bigfoot’s been hiding a few things under his baggy flannel shirts. Like abs of steel, and a surprisingly big...

Heart. He has a big heart.

Soon, sparks are flying between this unlikely couple, but can Zach embrace a fresh start - however manscaped it might be? And will Gemma beat out her Instabitch rival for the top spot - and keep the truth about their bet from Zach?

Find out in the hot and hilarious new romance from “the reigning queen of
rom-com”, USA Today bestselling author Lila Monroe.

How to Choose a Guy in 10 Days is Lila Monroe’s latest release and is a fun and romantic rom-com perfect for readers who love romances bubbly and humourful.

Stylist Gemma Jones is competing for the promotion of a lifetime. Up against a fellow colleague, all she needs to do is completely make over a style-poor individual to win a bet. Easy, right? Wrong! When her competition picks Gemma’s hairy, manwhore next door neighbour as her client, Gemma knows she’ll have her work cut out for her. After the breakup from hell, Zach Morrison has been happy wallowing in booze and women. He’s happy to sit around in sweat pants all day and sleep on a mattress on the floor of his apartment. After cashing in his tech company, it’s not like money is a problem. Which is why he has absolutely no interest in being Gemma’s makeover project, even if he does secretly love riling up his smart mouthed neighbour. Gemma is determined to give Zach a fresh new look, as much for him as for her, but as the beard comes off and the abs come out, Gemma quickly realises there’s more to Zach than the worn clothing and attitude; he’s actually a good guy, one she may just be falling for…..

How to Choose a Guy in 10 Days caught my attention with its title, a play on the movie How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. As a lover of the movie I have to say my interest was piqued but as soon as I begun reading the novel I found myself falling in love with it entirely based on its own merits. How to Choose a Guy in 10 Days is such a fun and flirty novel that really is effortless reading. It’s light but engaging and features a bubbly heroine and a grumpy (in the beginning!) love interest who undertakes a very entertaining makeover.

Written primarily through Gemma’s perspective with a chapter here and there from Zack’s POV thrown in for good measure, How to Choose a Guy in 10 Days is a neighbours to lovers tale perfect for romance lovers like myself. Gemma is a vibrant but kind person at her core. She lives for changing her clients lives one outfit at a time and her fun nature shines through throughout the story. She’s easy to follow and get behind while Zack is sexy in his own way.

Gemma and Zack have lovely chemistry and suit each other well. The light banter between them and the fun times they share build their relationship to its physical point which is neither overbearing or too little; it was just sexy. Solid sex scenes, moments of sweetness and hilarity within their relationship make their romance fun.

As the beginning of a series called Chick Flick Club that is set to feature Gemma’s friends Zoey and Eve who we meet in this first instalment, How to Choose a Guy in 10 Days is a light but enjoyable rom-com. Worth reading; I’ll be keeping my eye out for Zoey’s tale but next!
