“OMG this book was bloody hilarious; I laughed till I had to cross my legs and run to the loo (you’ll get this if you have kids like me)My other half thought I was losing the plot and kept giving me concerned glances with the strange noises that were coming from my corner of the lounge.” – Beckie Bookworm
“This book is every bit as entertaining as every other review is going to tell you, and I highly recommend this as a must read! You just have to, you won’t be sorry. 5 wet myself laughing Stars.” – Marnie
“‘THAT GUY’ gets a phenomenal 5* from me. I really cannot recommend this highly enough. I do know that if you are a fan of RomComs or Ms. Brooks .. this book needs to be read for the full effect.” – Trish Brown
This is an unusual romantic comedy from Belle Brookes, told from the point of view of the female lead Mindy. Mindy is an attractive woman, with curves to die for. Mindy lives in Melbourne with only her best friend Chris and her cat fletcher for company. Mindy is a disaster around men, she is always so nervous she babbles.
Sometimes I wanted to say get a grip, she was a lost cause. Then she meets Arlie who Mindy feels he is so hot he can’t possibly be interested. This starts a comedy of epic proportions as their relationship starts its dance.
This is a feel good fun loving read once it gets going. I do think making Mindy such a clutz was slightly overdone for me. I did love Arlie, he was a great bloke. Watching them falling in love was entertaining. I not saying anymore because I don’t want to spoil it.
