Book Review for The Modern Gentleman by Meghan Quinn.....

Have you ever hit rock bottom?
I embarrassingly have.
It’s why I’m wearing my girl's decorative scarf over my head, clutching her lady drink to my chest, and singing ever so softly to Joni Mitchell while swaying back and forth.
This is what therapists refer to as LOSING IT.
Oldest story in the book: boy meets girl, boy falls for girl, boy screws up MASSIVELY, girl tells boy to suffocate in the fruits of his very own unborn children.
Heard it before? I'm sure you have.
So what's so different about this story? Well, it's about me, The Modern Gentleman, New York City's top advice columnist, and my rather ungraceful downfall from my pristinely polished pedestal.
It's about a girl I met who threw all my proven theories to the wind and left me awkward, needy, and absolutely head-over-wingtipped shoes in love.
This is a story about June Lacy and how she single-handedly dismantled The Modern Gentleman.



With all the bleakness surrounding us now this is just the book we need.  As an author I’ve come to count on for fun and flirty reads full of heart and soul, Ms. Quinn delivers yet again with immensely appealing characters and a storyline that crackles.  From an endearing introduction to the hero, Wes Waldorf, to a series of interactions that put a smile on my face while making me laugh out loud, I was utterly captivated and never wanted the story to end!

Wes has always been seen as the master of dating and least on the pages of the internet articles he’s famous for writing.  In real life though he’s anything but suave and least when he starts a new series of articles featuring aspiring actress June Lacy.  His boss wants him to write about modern dating and June, unknowingly, becomes Wes’s test subject in a series of awkward exchanges that show him to be completely inept when it comes to June.  Through each laughable outcome, Wes endeared himself to me.  Through sweet and sexy words and deeds I fell for him even harder in a journey that had his growing feelings for her surprise even him.  Keeping the truth about his intentions was a recipe for disaster though, a heartbreaking one at that, that he worked hard to get forgiveness for in a conclusion that was an utter delight.  From the first page to the last Wes was larger than life, not afraid to show a softer side too, and it made for an even more lovable and realistic hero.  June was a perfect match to him, sassy and strong-willed, and she led him on a merry chase that made for a sensual journey that kept me glued to the pages.  Their romance sizzled, their banter witty and rapid-fire, and I inhaled every interaction they had together.  This pair was a dynamic duo indeed with a romance that won me over from the very start and I highly recommend this book to readers looking for a heartwarming and uplifting read, one that still makes me smile!

My rating for this is an A.

*I got this book from the author for review in exchange for my honest opinion.
