About the book

Alex is tired of being single. After years of disastrous hook-ups and relationships that lead to the bedroom but nowhere else, Alex is convinced she’ll never find her Mr Right. Then her newly married friend Stacey recommends what worked for her: a self-help book that guarantees Alex will find true love in just seven steps. Sounds simple, right? 

Except Alex soon discovers that each step is more difficult than the last, and one of the rules involves dating, but not sleeping with a guy for six months. Absolutely no intimate contact whatsoever. Zero. Nada. Rien. A big challenge for Alex, who has never been one to hold back from jumping straight into the sack, hoping it will help a man fall for her. 

Will any guys be willing to wait? Will Alex find her Mr Right? And if she does, will she be strong enough to resist temptation and hold out for true love?

Join Alex on her roller coaster romantic journey as she tries to cope with the emotional and physical ups and downs of dating whilst following a lengthy list of rigid rules.

Review

Alex is a little fed-up of being an afterthought  and not being able to find Mr Right, as opposed to Mr Right Now and not for much longer than that either. It's time for a new approach to dating and luckily her friend has just the thing.

Unfortunately one of the many rules is that she isn't allowed to have any kind of sexual contact with a potential date. Not exactly an easy thing to follow. Alex does like a bit of rompy-pompy, a wee exchange of hot moments and breathless situations.

I can imagine quite a few sniggers and laughs while people are reading this. It is funny and sometimes just outrageous, which again is hilarious at times. 'Coming before Commitment - no what after dinner?, seriously a good laugh.

This is the kind of escapist read everyone needs at the moment. The author isn't afraid to just write what she thinks, which is probably what a real life manual on dating and finding Mr Right would say. At least one with a no holds barred attitude and a healthy zest for life.

It's a bit of a bonkbuster, but with more of a light lively romcom feel, and less bonk due to the strict rules. There is a clear open approach to the topic of sensuality, sexuality and good ol' romps in the hay and any other place you could possibly do the horizontal tango or indeed vertical one too.
