    What I LOVED about this book1 The humor antics2 NO love triangles3 No female angst4 No drama to keep the 3 couples apart5 The couples were able to get to know each other in real situations with out something messing it up6 The couples didn't try to fight the attraction andor push each other away7 MOST IMPORTANTLY this book made me LAUGH and LAUGH and LAUGH and no crying whatsoever was involvedI couldn't put this book down nor did I want to Even when I tried to put it down for my book club I just couldn't do it This book was a breath of fresh air It had me literally in stitches laughing so much and at times so hard I had to put the book down to control myself I realized that reading this book late at night in bed with the hubby sleeping wasn't wise as I couldn't control my laughterThis book is ultimately about 3 couples who in their own circle are best of friends The women swear off men for 6 weeks as they are having bad luck dating They make a wager that who ever holds out until New Years with out giving in to their set of rules with a man wins the money in the pot to buy a killer pair of heels for their first New Years date and bragging rights The men are fed up with finding or being hit on by barflies at the bar they bar tend at They swear off women otherwise known as barflies at their place of work They are looking for nicegood women to date the kind they can take home to mom They make a wager and the last man standing in their bet wins the the tip jar that they are putting all their tips in Both sets of groups eventually meet and the fun begins once this happens All of the pranks antics conversationsjokes ex loser bad date stories funny ring tones on each others phones and the loopholes the men find to try to date these women with out the women realizing they are actually dating are pretty entertaining and funny This book is told mainly from the POV's of Grace and Michael Michael is swoon worthy Ryan can be as well SIDE NOTE The book starts off at a tad slow of a pace for a couple of chapters as we get to know each person in each group DON'T be put off by this This book will pick up and keep you smiling laughing and pretty happy and definitely tear free

    This was really bad Really really bad With the high rating I thought it might be a cute book I could flip through easily Wrong First off this is badly written I kept thinking this must have been some kind of fanfic that got published because somebody was being nice the day this landed on their desk Everything was just so sappy and unrealistic Did the characters even have any faults? Every person is described as perfect chiseled abs amazing body the opposite sex constantly hitting on them It gets ridiculous I kept thinking there has to be something the author is going to include to make me sympathize with the characters No WellI think she tried I really did For some reason Grace is incredibly self conscious even though she has an incredible body with killer curves I mean how could you forget? Her friends reassure her of this every chapter And there were moments when Grace would just suddenly burst into tears In fact this happened with every girl in the book It was like the author thought 'Oh This is a sad situation Let me just put real uick here that all the girls had tears streaming down their cheeks and that should be good' I just kept rolling my eyes at how contrived it all was And the way the girls behave is completely annoying There are too many examples to list but it was beyond unbelievable Like they're thirteen and just had their first kiss Ugh For the love of God do not waste your time on this book It's horrible I had to force myself to finish this I am so glad I'm done with this garbage

    If you are looking for a fun happy read look no further Grace Meg and Bianca all 24 have been best friends for 4 years after meeting at College They even live together They are all uniue with different personality’s Their relationship was tight and you felt the love they have for each other like sisters than friends They are also freakin hilarious They were successful in their professional lives but not in their love life’s After another tragic date the girls save Grace from they come up with a Boycott 6 weeks of these rules They just have to last till the New year The Boycott Rules #1 No Dates # 2 No tongue kissing with boys Closed lip kissing is fine If a guy rams his tongue down your throat unexpectedly it doesn’t count unless you kiss him back AKA Bianca’s rule # 3 No Sex of any kind If you wouldn’t want to see your parents do it that counts as sex and it’s off limits # 4 Each of us puts 200 into the pot If you break the rules of the boycott you lose the money The last person standing gets the money to spend on a hot pair of shoes to be worn on her first date of the New Year and gets eternal bragging rights about her superior will power Easy right? And who doesn’t want a pair of Manolo Blahniks?? Well you would think it would be easy with the losers and dorks they have dated in the past It all changes when they meet the very sexy single and amazing Ryan Michael and Jack Michael Ryan and Jack all 26 have been best friends since forever like the girls they are extremely close and tight with different personalities but the ability to bag the shit out of each other and laugh about it They are currently working as full time bartenders to learn the ropes so they can open their own Working at a bar well that Barflies They are sick of dumb plastic girls Of course they flirt to get a bigger tip but they are over playing around So they come up with their own bet The No Barflies Rules#1 If they meet a woman at the bar she is off limits #2 No Sex The last guy to have sex wins They also put money into a kitty to make it a real wager Straight to the point these guysNow let the fun begin As these 6 people cross path’s and start falling for each other You will laugh your ass off There is the library the football game pizza the bar one scene the boys do a lot of cocktail flair tricks for the girls OMG they do it to Kid Rocks “So Hott” seriously you tube that song the girls house and the Xbox the Gym Christmas snow storms weird stalkers playing pool and just other “random” meetings that aren’t dates As they start to couple off Michael finds “loopholes” in the girls rules and even negotiates some new rules in there with Meg so that he can spend time with Grace Including ONE no holds barred kiss with tongue one by one they start teaming up and trying to make the other couples cave so that they can be together You just have to see how it all plays out Ok so in all honestly this book was fluffy There was steam but only one real sex scene A lot of sexual chemistry but due to the Boycott it didn’t happen So hence my wording “fluffy” There was also nothing wrong with the boys or the girls No deep inner “something” that happened when they were younger no fathermother issues etc Well except for Grace’s insecurity Just a fun read Bianca has long red hair blue eyes lush eyelashes curvy body and killer legs She was also strong sexy and in control And throws a mean punch Meg average in height small framed chocolate hair but changed freuently Deep blue eyes was just that girl that everyone likes And also sexy and strong and shopping obsessed as well as believed in the HEA all her life Grace long black hair average height was insecure but hilarious Michael oh wow Michaeldaydreaming about Michael Smart popular gave the pizza place's number instead of his own if wasn't interested Deep blue eyes dark brown messy hair and a total sweetheart Jack large frame well defined muscles playful big bro type He was damn funny and perfect for Bianca Ryan the strong silent type a real gentleman and a self proclaimed romantic long blonde hair and ice blue eyes he was just beautiful The boys weren’t the usual book boyfriends I fall for They weren’t all Alpha male and Mine Mine Mine but you still felt there jealousy and that their girls were theirs I burst out laughing SOOO many times in this So I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who believes in HEA and just wants to smile the whole time they read it I’m def going to check out Victoria Michaels other works It’s the kind of book I would love to watch as a Rom Com Movie Fav uotes A red Dot on a white canvas isn’t a “representation of a woman’s struggle in a man dominated society” it’s a red freakin circle” – Jack to the boys “I’m going to my room to die now I’ll be drowning myself in the shower washing the layers of embarrassment and humiliation away It might take a few days” – Grace “Of course I get the feeling that they could spin in a circle and say “TA DA” and you’d be happy” – Vicki to the girls “It’s all fun and games until some creeper rubs his penis on my leg huh Michael?” – Grace “Stay away from her Don't look at her; don't even think about her If she appears in your dreams wake up and punch yourself in the face for me Come near her again and I'll cut your nuts off and put them in a jar on my mantle Do we understand each other? – Michael “What the hell is he doing?” Meg hissed in Grace’s ear “I have no idea but I may need your help burying a body later” – Grace “Don’t make me come after the mousse Michael I don’t want to hurt you but I will I’m a woman and we really like our chocolate” – Grace

    I've barely given one star to a book But I just can't help for this one The reason why I started reading this book is because you know in Goodreads there is a section 'People who like this book also like' the column on the right side See that? Nah When I finished Wallbanger and had written the review I peeked at the right column saw this book clicked the title and WHOAAA Its rating is four point something This must be goodThe first pages were really okay Funny and hilarious I started to believe this book would be another Wallbanger But later on it was getting so painful for me but I kept reading because of the reviews FOUR FREAKIN POINT SOMETHING MUST NOT LIE TO ME IT WONT IT JUST WONT Just when I thought anything could be better Wrong Badly written everything just cheesy sappy and unrealistic The characters ALL OF THEM I repeat ALL OF THEM seemed very flawless too perfect and you wont find people like this in the real life Maybe one or two BUT NOT SIX OF THEM The characters also very very childish annoying and again unrealisticToo many coincidence too many unnecessary scenes too many repeated thingsSeriously do not waste your time on this book It's horrible If it was not because I had completed almost half of the book I wouldn't continue to read it Even I had to force myself to finish this Save your precious time by skipping this book is the best advice that I can give you

    I know like 50 Koreans and 3 of them are named Grace Park Seriously So when I read the summary of this book I got super excited An Asian American lead In a book that has nothing to do with Kim Jong Il the Korean War or karate Well you know what they say about people who assumeNo no there's no mention of the Dear Leader the war or ninjas but there's no mention of any Asians either Grace Park could easily be Grace Smith and the author wouldn't have to change anything in the story This was a disappointment to say the least because there was no other draw to this story for me The plot about three female roommates who decide to boycott men after some horrendous dates isn't particularly uniue or noteworthy The three perfect men they meet bartenders of course aren't special eitherStill I'm a sucker for a good romantic comedy so not all was lost I got over my disappointment and settled in for some light reading There's a scene early on where the guys who are sick of only attracting drunken barflies at work decide to head to the library to meet nice girls I think there was a Saved by the Bell episode with the same premise but hey I liked Zack Morris back in the day That's where the guys meet Grace who is helping her librarian friend reshelve books One of the guys is dared to ask Grace where the Playboys are Poor Screech Thus begins a series of coincidental encounters where Grace and her friends meet Zack Slater and coAfter about the 5th encounter I noticed that I wasn't even halfway through my Kindle book I checked online and saw that it was FOUR HUNDRED AND TWENTY TWO pages Now unless one of the characters is a dragon or a unicorn there is NO reason for a romance to be 400 pages It reminded me of an episode of Sports Night where Jeremy has to cut his first highlights package for a game He asks Casey to look over his work and Casey tells him after watching 85 minutes of clips that should've been 30 seconds Make it shorterJeremy I don't know what to doCasey Make it shorterJeremy I've tried everythingCasey You should try making it shorterJeremy I can't imagine what I'd cut This is the conversation Victoria Michaels should've had with her editor Apparently this book started out on a fan fiction website? I'm not biased against self published books hello Angelfall but this could've benefitted from tighter editing Had this book been 200 pages less I probably would've given it 4 stars It's cute and cotton candy fluffy but 422 pages of I love you made me want someone to die Violently25 stars


  10. Rebecca Rebecca says:

    Do people give this book 5 stars because they don't want to hurt someone's feelings? Either that or all of the readers are 14 and this is the life they dream about The entire premise is based on which girl can avoid a datesex with some guy they met less than a month ago Noreally That's the big bet The prize is a pair of shoes A nice pair of shoes but shoes nonetheless Really? The down times between all the sexual angst and frat boy hijinks are spent sharing intimate details usually while huddled together in panties and a t shirt punctuated with a lot of screaming In my head it sounds like a bad roller coaster ride full of junior high girls Maybe it's because I'm old and mildly grown but I'm going to ABuy whatever shoes I want and BShag whenever I want and CNOT sueal in delight with anyone about either Who does that? Bleh I found myself skipping over much of the wasted details It's depressing to think about a bunch of 20 somethings thinking anything about this book is a good idea As an addition who's the editor?? The errors are almost as depressing as the premise

    I've barely given one star to a book But I just can't help for this one The reason why I started reading this book is because you know in Goodreads there is a section 'People who like this book also like' the column on the right side See that? Nah When I finished Wallbanger and had written the review I peeked at the right column saw this book clicked the title and WHOAAA Its rating is four point something This must be goodThe first pages were really okay Funny and hilarious I started to believe this book would be another Wallbanger But later on it was getting so painful for me but I kept reading because of the reviews FOUR FREAKIN POINT SOMETHING MUST NOT LIE TO ME IT WONT IT JUST WONT Just when I thought anything could be better Wrong Badly written everything just cheesy sappy and unrealistic The characters ALL OF THEM I repeat ALL OF THEM seemed very flawless too perfect and you wont find people like this in the real life Maybe one or two BUT NOT SIX OF THEM The characters also very very childish annoying and again unrealisticToo many coincidence too many unnecessary scenes too many repeated thingsSeriously do not waste your time on this book It's horrible If it was not because I had completed almost half of the book I wouldn't continue to read it Even I had to force myself to finish this Save your precious time by skipping this book is the best advice that I can give you

    I know like 50 Koreans and 3 of them are named Grace Park Seriously So when I read the summary of this book I got super excited An Asian American lead In a book that has nothing to do with Kim Jong Il the Korean War or karate Well you know what they say about people who assumeNo no there's no mention of the Dear Leader the war or ninjas but there's no mention of any Asians either Grace Park could easily be Grace Smith and the author wouldn't have to change anything in the story This was a disappointment to say the least because there was no other draw to this story for me The plot about three female roommates who decide to boycott men after some horrendous dates isn't particularly uniue or noteworthy The three perfect men they meet bartenders of course aren't special eitherStill I'm a sucker for a good romantic comedy so not all was lost I got over my disappointment and settled in for some light reading There's a scene early on where the guys who are sick of only attracting drunken barflies at work decide to head to the library to meet nice girls I think there was a Saved by the Bell episode with the same premise but hey I liked Zack Morris back in the day That's where the guys meet Grace who is helping her librarian friend reshelve books One of the guys is dared to ask Grace where the Playboys are Poor Screech Thus begins a series of coincidental encounters where Grace and her friends meet Zack Slater and coAfter about the 5th encounter I noticed that I wasn't even halfway through my Kindle book I checked online and saw that it was FOUR HUNDRED AND TWENTY TWO pages Now unless one of the characters is a dragon or a unicorn there is NO reason for a romance to be 400 pages It reminded me of an episode of Sports Night where Jeremy has to cut his first highlights package for a game He asks Casey to look over his work and Casey tells him after watching 85 minutes of clips that should've been 30 seconds Make it shorterJeremy I don't know what to doCasey Make it shorterJeremy I've tried everythingCasey You should try making it shorterJeremy I can't imagine what I'd cut This is the conversation Victoria Michaels should've had with her editor Apparently this book started out on a fan fiction website? I'm not biased against self published books hello Angelfall but this could've benefitted from tighter editing Had this book been 200 pages less I probably would've given it 4 stars It's cute and cotton candy fluffy but 422 pages of I love you made me want someone to die Violently25 stars

    Do people give this book 5 stars because they don't want to hurt someone's feelings? Either that or all of the readers are 14 and this is the life they dream about The entire premise is based on which girl can avoid a datesex with some guy they met less than a month ago Noreally That's the big bet The prize is a pair of shoes A nice pair of shoes but shoes nonetheless Really? The down times between all the sexual angst and frat boy hijinks are spent sharing intimate details usually while huddled together in panties and a t shirt punctuated with a lot of screaming In my head it sounds like a bad roller coaster ride full of junior high girls Maybe it's because I'm old and mildly grown but I'm going to ABuy whatever shoes I want and BShag whenever I want and CNOT sueal in delight with anyone about either Who does that? Bleh I found myself skipping over much of the wasted details It's depressing to think about a bunch of 20 somethings thinking anything about this book is a good idea As an addition who's the editor?? The errors are almost as depressing as the premise
