How to Win a Guy in 10 Dates -Jane Linfoot
The 10 Date Challenge
Day 1: Take one loaded commitment-phobe explosives expert, embarking on the impossible–a challenge to have ten dates with one woman.
Day 5: Add in a fiercely independent and feisty burlesque teacher who has sworn off men.
Day 10: She’s so not his type and he’s so not in her life-plan. But the heat is sizzling and the attraction is explosive. And they’re fighting it all the way….
Jane Linfoot is entertaining. That's all I can say. Her writing style is straightforward, easy to read and full of heartwrenching moments and hilarious humour.
There is a wealthy, hot, testosterone filled male lead in Ed, and a strong, attractive, feisty female love interest in Millie. Watching their feelings for each other unfurl as they are determined to resist each other makes for a compelling read, one which as a reader I found a little bit emotional! They always say that writers should take their characters on a journey, and Jane Linfoot certainly does that.
There are hidden secrets, steamy passion and moments where I wanted to grab both Ed and Millie and shake them! But I'm not ashamed to say my favourite part of the book were the last few scenes which left me with a bit of a lump in my throat.
How to Win a Guy in 10 Dates is a typical Harper Impulse read- full on romance, a bit of raunch and a well woven tale. It'd be a great summer holiday read.
How to Win a Guy in 10 Dates is out now in both ebook and paperback format, published by Harper Impulse.
With thanks to the publisher for giving me a review copy of this book in return for my honest opinion.
Writing romance is cool, because I get to wear pretty shoes instead of wellies. I live in a mountain kingdom in Derbyshire, where my family and pets are kind enough to ignore the domestic chaos. Happily, we're in walking distance of a supermarket. I love hearts, flowers, happy endings, all things vintage, most things french. When I'm not on facebook, and can't find an excuse for shopping, I'll be walking, or gardening. On days when I want to be really scared, I ride a tandem.
