New Release+Review: Not the Girl You Marry by Andie J. Christopher

How To Lose a Guy in 10 Days gets a millennial makeover in this romantic comedy by USA Today bestselling author Andie J. Christopher.

Jack Nolan is a gentleman, a journalist, and unlucky in love. His viral success has pigeon-holed him as the how-to guy for a buzzy, internet media company instead of covering hard-hitting politics. Fed up with his fluffy articles and the app-based dating scene as well, he strikes a deal with his boss to write a final piece de resistance: How to Lose a Girl. Easier said than done when the girl he meets is Hannah Mayfield, and he's not sure he wants her to dump him.

Hannah is an extremely successful event planner who's focused on climbing the career ladder. Her firm is one of the most prestigious in the city, and she's determined to secure her next promotion. But Hannah has a bit of an image problem. She needs to show her boss that she has range, including planning dreaded, romantic weddings. Enter Jack. He’s the perfect man to date for a couple weeks to prove to her boss that she’s not scared of feelings.

Before Jack and Hannah know it, their fake relationship starts to feel all too real—and neither of them can stand to lose each other



Christy's Review:

I’ve always loved the film ‘How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days’ so when I saw the synopsis of this book, I knew I had to read it! This had a different spin than the film, but was so much fun to read!

Hannah has had it with men. With her last serious boyfriend telling her she’s not the type of girl someone marries, she’s pretty much given up on love. Then enters Jack Nolan. Jack is not like other guys. He too is unlucky in love, but he’s respectful and a truly nice guy. He’s also a journalist. Hannah is an event planner.

Hannah doesn’t want to date anyone, but she needs the facade of having a boyfriend to get to plan this big wedding that could lead to a promotion so she agrees to date Jack temporarily. Meanwhile, Jack’s boss wants him to write an article on how to lose a girl, and even though it’s against his nature to do something like this, it’s the big break he needs to further his career.

While all this madness is going on, Jack and Hannah start to develop real feelings. Jack feels awful doing any of these things to drive Hannah away and Hannah is conflicted on using Jack as well. It’s all a huge mess that’s just waiting to implode…

Both Hannah and Jack are ambitious and I liked that about them. I also liked how they both learned a lot about themselves from this whole charade. There was a ton of personal growth. My favorite message that the book gave is that just because you’re not a specific persons cup of tea, doesn’t mean you’re not someone else’s dream girl/guy. Sometimes it’s just a matter of finding that person that clicks with you.

This book was smart, witty, made me laugh out loud, and was steamy, sweet, and all around refreshing. I truly loved that the heroine had a back bone and take no crap attitude and the hero was a real sweetheart and a genuinely good guy. Not the Girl You Marry is a fantastic debut and I’m looking forward to reading more from Andie J. Christopher!

Blurb:

It started with a lie. A night of blurred lines between a teacher and a student.



I wasn’t her student, yet it was the single most defining night of my life.



I’ve never been the man she thinks I am.



Most people have no idea about the life I’ve lived or the words that ring true when it comes to me—still waters run deep.



But you’d be hard-pressed to find a coed on the TGU campus who knows otherwise…because I’ve never corrected them.



The clock is ticking down, it’s Fourth and Inches with the ball inside the one-yard line and the focus is on me, The Guy on the Left. I’ve never felt like a football god, inside I’m…just Troy.



It’s time to set the record straight.



For my son, I‘ll find the strength.



In her eyes, I’m determined to gain redemption.



I will have them both, even if I have to take my eye off the ball.





*The Guy on the Left is a stand alone novel in the Underdogs Series. This is Troy's story.

COVER REVEAL: LJ Shen's In the Unlikely Event


ITUE - CR banner


Sometimes you meet people who are out of this world, so you make them a part of yours.


In the Unlikely Event, an all-new must-read contemporary romance from USA Today bestselling author L.J. Shen, is coming November 19th and we have the gorgeous cover!


In the Unlikely Event AMAZON

A one-night stand born from vengeance in a foreign land.

An explosive chemistry neither of us could deny.

We signed a contract on the back of a Boar’s Head Pub napkin that said if we ever met again, we would drop everything and be together.

Eight years and thousands of miles later, he’s here.

In New York.

And he’s America’s music obsession.

The intangible Irish poet who brings record executives to their knees.

The blizzard in my perfect, unshaken snow globe.

Last time we spoke, he was a beggar with no intention of becoming a king.

But a king he became, and now I’m his servant.

I’m not the same broken princess Malachy Doherty put back together with his callused hands.

I have a career I love.

A boyfriend I adore.

An apartment, a roommate, a life.

I changed. He changed, too.

But Mal kept the napkin.

Question is, will I keep my word?
