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 laughter. This 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.

Michael is swoon worthy Ryan can be as well. DON'T be put off by this. This book will pick up and keep you smiling, laughing and pretty happy and definitely tear free. View all 16 comments.

This was really bad. Really, really bad. With the high rating, I thought it might be a cute book I could flip through easily. 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 This was really bad. 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. I 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 quick here that all the girls had tears streaming down their cheeks and that should be good! 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.

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. View all 3 comments. There was nothing not to love. One of the best books I've read so far! Oh My God, How much I've laughed and laughed and laugh is something! I literally had a tummy ache and tears rolling down my face by the amount I laughed while reading this brilliant book!

I can thank Jenn M enough for recommending this book to me! Boy was is bloody brilliant! What I loved about the book was there was no irritating drama! No weird love triangles between the 3girls and the 3guys!

Loved how their story started and how unknowingly then all fell in love at the prefect time!
