Publisher: Te Da Media

Why the hell can’t chicks be more like guys?  That question plagues high school senior Sam Cruz. Sam is perfectly happy being a player. He just wishes girls wouldn’t change the game from sex to relationships. It makes him look like an asshole. But when Sam’s best friend, Ally Klinger, gets dumped, she begs him to transform her into someone who can screw around then screw off. No risk of heartbreak that way. It’s Sam’s chance to create the perfect female AND cheer up his best friend. Armed with Sam’s Three Step Guide to Backseat Success, Ally gets the game better than Sam thought she would and before long, Sam has his wish: the female version of himself. Too bad it’s driving him nuts. Told from Sam’s and Ally's alternating POVs, Sam Cruz’s Infallible Guide to Getting Girls is a fast-paced romantic comedy that follows these teens as they navigate the minefield of sex, love, and friendship.  - Goodreads.com

This story reminded me a lot of Nyrae Dawn's What a Boy Wants, but only because it's about a player who falls hard for someone.  I loved Nyrae's book, and I absolutely adored this one.  What a cute, fun, and entertaining read this was.

I loved Sam from page one.  His narrative was hilarious, and although he's a little bit of a man-slut, you just had to love him anyway.  His narrative was so honest, even though a bit raunchy.  But hey, we're in a guy's head, and a man-slut guy besides...so what did you expect?  It's bound to have some guy-raunch thoughts in it.  But I found them to be hilariously funny.  But obviously, it does create a more adult-like feel to it.

Ally was such a cute character too... this is a nerd that decides to get her freak on because she's always played it safe and ladylike, and all it does it get her a broken heart.  So the player extraordinaire is going to teach her how to be a player.  His lessons are hysterically funny, and their interaction together during this was so funny. 

It doesn't take long at all for the reader to learn that these two are perfect together and belong together.  Their banter together was so cute, and I could actually see this being a movie and seeing these two characters up on a big screen bantering, while the audience sits there knowing they're going to get together eventually, even if the characters themselves don't know it.

The writing was fast and seamless, and the characterization perfect.  You really felt like you knew these people.  It was an amazingly cute story that was a perfect little romance.
