    This is about as girly as chick lit gets.It s frustrating enough to have you sighing out loud about Emily and her troubles, but not so frustrating that you want to throw the book across the room You just want to carry on reading so you know that she s going to get away from a certain guy, who is NOT Mr Right, and finally fall in to the arms of the perfect man for her How could she be so blind The beginning of this book is Emily moping around after finding out that her Mr Right Now is not a good guy He s a dick But Rachel Schurig doesn t let Emily mope for long By the end of chapter three we see the end of ice cream and pizza and alcohol and Emily mans up and gets back out there.Is predictability bad in a chick lit I found is reassuring I kinda knew where the story was going and was pleasantl...

    I didn t enjoy this book in the least The pace was way too slow and the initial plot too pathetic The whole story begins with the protagonist, Emily, being short in luck in the man department, and her friends accounting for her misfortunes in love as the result of her scarce education on the topic So they decide that to change she has to read chick lit, classic romance, and watch as many chick flicks as she can I mean, how lame is this I found it so stupid it verged on irritating The first 40% of the book was excruciating to get through, ...

    I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.I won t lie, this book frustrated me at different points I liked Emily, don t get me wrong, but she let other people push her around, and made decisions based solely on other people s input rather than listening to her own heart, and mind I understand why she felt insecure, but it was frustrating seeing her make the right decision for herself, and then talk herself out of it because it might seem childish, or not meet with other people s approval I was waffling between a two, and a three star rating until just about the end, and this book won me over It was nice to read a romance novel where the female lead makes such strong decisions, and grows over the course of the story I don t want to spoil the ending, but I will say it s refreshing to read a romance that doesn t end in the typically clich d way The secondary characters were pretty well done, I especially liked her friend Brooke Even thought she could be a bit overbearing, I liked that everything she did, and said was based on how much she cared about Emily I wasn t as wild about Ashley It s not that I didn t like her, it was just I didn t think the whole project seemed like something a real friend would try to do Ditto with Ryan He seemed a bit shallow, and it was hard...

    I am officially a Rachel Schurig fan I devoured Three Girls and a Baby and I loved In Search of a Love Story almost as much I say almost because Three Girls is still my fave In this book, the main character Emily has just found out that her boyfriend is a cheating douchebag and she is determined to give up on men forever Her friends Ashley and Ryan won t have it and are convinced that Emily will have better luck with men if she immerses herself in chick flicks and romance books and learns what types of men are keepers and which should be tossed aside Since Emily is of a tomboy, she s not too keen but decides to give it a try anyway I love Schurig s writing style the voice is so easy that the pages turn themselves But my favorite aspect of her writing is the character development Each character, from down to earth Emily to her corny roommate Ashley, to her promiscuous gay best friend Ryan, to her self assured best friend ...

    I found it hard to concentrate on this book and found myself wandering off and reading others in between this one, seven others to be exact.It is not this it is not well written, it is, I just didn t connect with the characters, especially her friends The main character switched from being a complete doormat to very angry.This may sound harsh but I didn t really care who she got together with in the end.The story line w...

    I had a hard time rating this book The author has so much potential, but the behavior of several of the main characters in this book drove me crazy at times I had to come back and edit this review because I realized I d mixed up another book the author wrote with this oneso yes, I liked the author well enough to read another of her books That should tell you something of my mixed f...

    When you want to learn how to do something, you consult experts, right That s the advice that Emily s friends give her when they diagnose her as being clinically unromantic She needs to immerse herself in romance novels and find herself a man.Emily gamely albeit a tad reluctantly agrees She reads books and watches chick flicks, and along the way attempts to apply what she learned to her love life In a meet cute sort of set up, she runs into Greg, a handsome, successful prospect who adores her Emily s friends think SCORE, but part of Emily wonders Is he the one Were the novels and movies right Then there is her friend Elliott, who seems quite unimpressed with Greg What s up with him If you already know how this ends, bravo Then again, the ending is trumped so loudly and clearly as to render the reading of the novel fairly useless I ve read lots of books that give away their endings early on, but they make up for it by being entertaining, by having characters I like and wish I could get to know.That is not the case here.Faithful readers, I was bored Bored, I tell you There is so little about this book to recommend that I m hard pressed to justify the two stars It s cute, I suppose, and the premise is also cute But it s just so transparent That s what turns me off than anything There is no mystery or pull to keep reading.If you want a mindless book with a cute little gimmick, then you could do worse than this ...

    After Emily s boyfriend dumped her, her friends decide that her lack of knowledge in romantic movies or books is the reason that she keeps falling for the wrong guys, because according to them you have to read Pride and Prejudice to know that you should go for the Mr Dacys instead of the Mr Wickhams of the world So the lessons begin and finally Mr Perfect shows up, true to form rescueing her from being hit by a truck.This was a light and quick read, I loved the references to movies and books and the dynamics between Emily and her friends, being schooled in romance fiction however it is very clear for the reader from the start how things will end, I would have loved some twists and puns of the genre, some self irony.The characters are loveable but the way the heroine narrator actually sees and descri...

    Here is another trilogy from Rachel Schurig A chick lit through and through, but looking past that, it was sweet, short, and thoroughly enjoyable The first in the series talks about the unlucky streaks of romantic relationships for Emily She seems to be too old to no...

    Another good read from Rachel Schurig, there was a minor error near the end where it said Ashley was kissing Ryan when it should have said Chris I loved all the characters but view spoiler Greg was an arse and I was so glad when Emily finally saw sense I was rooting for Elliott all...
