Love by the Book by Melissa Pimentel

5 Star

The last thing twenty-eight-year-old Lauren is looking for is love, so why do the men she's dating assume she's searching for The One?

With men running for the hills, Lauren takes drastic action and turns her love life into an experiment, vowing to follow the advice of a different dating guide every month.

From releasing her inner siren to swearing off sex completely, Lauren will follow The Rules and play The Game, all with the help of her disapproving best friend and her newly loved-up housemate.

But as she searches for the holy grail of no-strings sex minus the heartache, Lauren soon realizes that dating is more complicated than just swiping right - and that the things you run from tend to always catch up with you...

Also known as Age Sex Location, this was classic chick lit at its finest. I definitely enjoyed the novel a lot as it reminded me of my own forays into the dating world, and often with some strange methodology similar to Lauren's. I often thought my dating experiences could add up to a good story and now having read this latest book of Melissa Pimentel's, I am even more convinced that this is true.

Definitely hilarious and absolutely intriguing, this quick and addictive read had me giggling and reflecting on similar situations I had found myself in in the past. Probably a book that most women, especially those who are perpetually, or seemingly perpetually single, can relate to.

I really loved every aspect of this book and can't find anything to criticize about it at all. The characters were realistic and easy to relate to, which is a definite must for me in this genre. I like to feel like I could be the protagonist in the story and Lauren and I felt like kindred spirits in many ways.

For anyone who wants a great and entertaining read, this book is definitely one for you. I would even go so far as to say it will be one of my favorite books of this year since I enjoyed it that much!
