How to Choose a Guy in 10 Days by Lila Monroe Review



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.



Lila Monroe is off to a great start with How to Choose A Guy in 10 Days, the first book from her new series of romantic comedies, Chick Flick Club. Three cleverly titled books follow a trio of best friends as they find love in the often disastrous, occasionally delicious San Francisco dating scene. I loved Monroe’s previous book, Man Candy, and she teased How to Choose a Guy in 10 Days at the end of it. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it, and I devoured this flirty, fun-to-read enemies-to-lovers romantic comedy in a single afternoon.

Gemma and Zach were polar opposites whose relationship began with more antagonism than attraction. It didn’t matter if they were tearing into each other or tearing each other’s clothes off, though, their chemistry sparked right off the page. These two next door neighbors were constantly bumping heads over everything from his playboy tendencies and need for a haircut to Gemma’s uptight ways. With a promotion hanging in the balance, Gemma gets Zach to agree to a complete makeover, and in the process, Zach isn’t the only one who gets a transformation. They both change the way they see each other as they discover that there is more to the other than meets the eye.

Monroe dished up an amusing, entertaining romance here with a fresh and very creative plot. Laugh-out-loud funny and fanning myself sexy, How to Choose a Guy in 10 Days gets 4.5 smooches from me!
