The Review:

Ed Mitchum is thirty-one and doesn’t do dates nor does he do relationships. He stays as far away from commitment as he can because to him, committing to one of the women who flock to him and his fortune are the surest way to get his heart broken and his pockets empty. When his sister, Cassie and his best friend, Will, challenge him to date one woman of his choosing for ten dates, but under certain guidelines, one of which is to hide his fortune, he can’t help but agree. Challenges are what he thrives on and the stakes and rewards are too high to pass up.

Millie Brown is in hiding. She’s running from a heartbroken past, an insufferable ex and an affluent family that has let her down. She’s sworn off men and all the trappings that come with depending on someone. She’s left behind her family’s money and decided independence is the only way to live and being alone is penance for all the misfortune that she’s caused in her life. Staying on a friends ranch is giving her the solitude and space she needs until one day an accidental blast shakes her entire world.

When Ed rescues Millie on a chance meeting, her different ways, her challenging ideals and the way she stampedes into his heart, are complete game changers. Millie is taken by storm as Ed barrels into her life, insisting on her time and her company and these two opposing forces are bound to collide!

This story is light and sweet with a bit of spice and a lot of great character interaction. The conflict wasn’t too heavy yet challenging enough to keep me highly entertained. Ed and Millie made a charming couple when they got along and fiery adversaries when they are at odds. Their romance was alluring and fun.

Biggest Complaint...
My biggest complaint with this book was the short, choppy sentences that were disjointed and distracting. There was a lot of two or three word sentences that stopped the flow of the paragraphs and for me and interrupted the scenes because I had to go back and reread it to grasp what was being said. Also, I'm not a novice to British lingo but I admit, there were a few times I also struggled with some of the words in this one.

The Wrap Up:
This was a short and fast read. Coming in at about 165 pages,How To Win A Guy In 10 Dates was fun and quirky. I enjoyed the romance, the slight conflict and the characters. This was a great afternoon read and I’d definitely give this author another go.

 About the Author:
I write fun, flirty fiction, with feisty heroines and a bit of an edge. Writing romance is cool, because I get to wear pretty shoes instead of gumboots. I live in a mountain kingdom in Derbyshire, England, where my family and pets are kind enough to ignore the domestic chaos – happily, we’re in walking distance of a supermarket. I love hearts, flowers, happy endings, all things vintage, most things french. When I’m not on facebook, and can’t find an excuse for shopping, I’ll be walking, or gardening. On days when I want to be really scared, I ride a tandem.
