Memorize it, live by it, and happy dating!
This is a happy book! It made me all giddy and giggly while reading about Melanie’s encounters with men and falling in love then falling apart. Good thing, her best- friend Patti is at her beck and call. Whenever she needs her help, she’s there, complete with Boyfriend Bylaws. I thought it was amusing when Mel had to call her friend first to ask permission to date or give a man her phone number.
BUT there were two things I didn’t like – Melanie giving the title of her car as a collateral, just to be able to date a guy?! And after just One Kiss and she thinks she finally found The One?! Absolutely ridiculous!
I think I’ll recommend this short romance story for an overnight reading, just so you could sleep well with a smile on your face.
