Hi Bookishlovers! I’ve been waiting for a book like this to appear, because we live in a world where most of turn to the internet for advice and a lot of us spend our time typing away on the blogosphere, putting our words and opinions out there for everyone to read. We’ve all read tons of articles on how to get the girl, how to keep the guy and so on… Well this book brings two bloggers with conflicting advice together in the funniest way.
Online virile.com dating columnist Dane Martin has no plans to give up his reign as bachelor extraordinaire. He has a reputation to uphold, especially with the upcoming release of his book Coming on Strong.
Holly Winters, everyone’s favorite girl next door, thanks to her blog of the same name, gives advice, but she doesn’t always take it. When she meets Dane Martin, every fiber of her being warns her to turn tail and run. Instead, she risks her future as an authority on relationships, jeopardizing her upcoming self-help book for women struggling to find commitment among the Virile sycophants.
Has the Girl Next Door tamed the most Virile man alive, or is she just another notch on the bedpost?

When you throw two rival bloggers together as a couple for a publicity stunt, things are bound to get interesting. But when one of those bloggers give advice on how to get a girl into bed on the first date and the other blogger advises not to get into bed with a man until after the seventh date, you’re sure that somehow this whole thing will blow up in their faces.
This novella had me roaring with laughter as the two opposites attract. It had a bit of a rom/com feel to it, what with finding out that Prince Charming used to be a pumpkin and tries to hide from his old self. It was nice to see the player change his ways and the sweet girl also change her policy.
Everything about this novella was fun. From the little snippets of advice from the blogs, to the dates that sound so fun, right down to the big dog boss and Dane actually being Dante. And when everything goes bad and he finally comes to his senses, I experienced a completely feel good moment.
Yet again Entangled brought all the good stuff!
