Book review of How to Win a Guy in 10 Dates by Jane Linfoot


French Village Diaries #HIFortnight How to Win a Guy in 10 Dates Jane Linfoot HarperImpulse book review

Today I’m delighted to be taking part in #HIFortnight, a social media spotlight to celebrate the hot romance novels published by HarperImpulse. My review is for How to Win a Guy in 10 Dates: HarperImpulse Contemporary Romance by Jane Linfoot, that in true HarperImpulse style, is a hot and steamy romance set over ten dates between Ed (serial one night stand man) and Millie (independent girl with no time for men).

French Village Diaries #HIFortnight How to Win a Guy in 10 Dates Jane Linfoot HarperImpulse book reviewEd has been challenged by his sister to date the same girl ten times, with certain rules and conditions, and after an accident brings them together, Millie becomes that girl. They end up spending time alone and sharing a few smoldering meals as Ed ticks off his dates and reports back to his meddling sister. Their emotions are kept in check until they spend a weekend in Provence where they pretty soon find the chemistry between them is as explosive as the fireworks they are there to watch. However neither of them are honest with each other about their backgrounds, or with themselves about their feelings. They both have secrets and issues from the past that neither of them are willing to deal with, but somehow being together begins to unravel the defense mechanisms they had put in place to protect their emotions.

I found it a fun, quick read with plenty of spice and heat, so I wouldn’t recommend it if explicit sex isn’t your thing. I liked the characters and enjoyed their journey of discovery, all the while wondering what would happen after their ten dates. There are a few good emotional plot twists that kept me on my toes and wondering if, despite the chemistry, too much past hurt and present deceit had put play to a happy ever after.

How to Win a Guy in 10 Dates: HarperImpulse Contemporary Romance is available in ebook and paperback format, links to Amazon can be found below. I have also read and enjoyed High Heels and Bicycle Wheels also by Jane Linfoot and HarperImpulse.
