Review and Giveaway: How to Win a Guy in 10 Dates





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….



Buy How to Win a Guy in Ten Dates




The premise of How to Win a Guy in 10 Dates is a bit ridiculous - Ed's sister bets that he can't take a woman out on ten regular dates, then he nearly blows up Millie, the perfect candidate for this ten date challenge - but then, that's true of most romance novels. That's part of what makes them a guilty pleasure. So ridiculousness aside, this book was actually a pretty good read. Millie is an feisty character who strives for independence and hides from love so she won't get her heart broken. Ed is a womanizer with secrets of his own. Together, the two embark on their relationship with humour and sincerity.

Jane Linfoot did a good job writing her characters, but a great job describing the scenery and setting scenes. I had a vivid picture of the book in my mind the whole way through. If you're looking for a fun read, this would be a good one to pick up.

Author Info
I write fun, flirty fiction, with feisty heroines and a bit of an edge. Writing romance is cool, because I get to wear pretty shoes instead of gumboots. I live in a mountain kingdom in Derbyshire, England, 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.
