Engaging Men by Lynda Curnyn

Hero: Kirk
Heroine: Angela DiFranco
Grade: B-
Date: 1/11/06

A novel about men . . . and the woman who loves them!

When one ex-boyfriend gets married, a girl can laugh it off. With two, she begins to get nervous. But three? Three?

Angie DiFranco is starting to take it personally. What is it about her that doesn't incite men to plunk down large sums of money in the name of eternal love?

According to her one successfully married friend, men are like tight lids. One woman comes along, loosens him up, leaving him for the next woman to pop off the lid, no problem. After all, would Jennifer have landed Brad so easily without the Gwyneth factor?

Suddenly Angie looks at Kirk, her current boyfriend, with new eyes. Kirk, whose last girlfriend loosened his lid by giving him The Ultimatum. Kirk, who suddenly seems primed to be popped right open.

If the tight-lid theory is true, Angie could be married within a year -- with a little effort. And a little help from her friends . . .

The author of Confessions of an Ex-Girlfriend will utterly engage you with her vibrant new novel chronicling Angie's angst and euphoria as she resolves to mate and make it in Manhattan.
What a great read this book was for me.

It was light and fluffy and not at all like the serious books that I've been reading for the past few months or so. Angela DiFranco was fun, witty and the perfect heroine for this goofy, sometimes silly but at times serious story. It's funny how the author tricks you into liking one character at the beginning of the book and then has you cheering for someone else entirely by the middle of the book. It was really great.

I have a serious mad crush on Justin I don't remember his last name in this book. He was delightful and lonely and needed love more than he let on from the beginning. He transformed before your eyes and made you yearn to be HIS room mate because he was perfect for YOU.

I loved the way this book ended, the way this book flowed, it was a bit cliched (the storyline) but it was a great read nonetheless. I thought about this book long after I finished the book, so much so that I'm STILL thinking of it and I've since started a new book. The characters grab you and reel you in, they become your friends and they have you wishing you were in the audience to support Justin on his big night. I highly recommend this book if you want a feel good, fun loving book to read on those nights when nothing seems to work for you.

A treat.
