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.

This book contains strong language, drinking, euphemisms, and lots of "bow chicka wow wow."

My Thoughts:

Sam Cruz is your typical player who doesn't like commitments, while on the other hand, his bestfriend, Ally is the opposite. But after Ally got dumped by her long time boyfriend(on her birthday!) she wanted to change herself and asked Sam to teach her his ways. Sam found an opportunity to finally solve his long-time problem about why can't can't chicks be more like guys in Ally's proposition. And so there begins the hilarious and romantic journey of Sam and Ally from the best-friend zone to the more-than-friends valley. 

Sam Cruz's Infallible Guide to Getting Girls is, by far, my most favorite romance comedy of 2012. It was fun to read Ally and Sam's thoughts as they alternatingly told the story from their perspective. They both have a great sense of humor and a ridiculous sarcasm that  can make you like them so much. I found myself laughing a few times because of this. And by the way, if you haven't heard of the penguin joke, you have to read this book. 

I would definitely recommend this to Young Adults age 18 and above because, although this is set in high school, the language used in this book is a bit sexy for the younger reader. 

My Rating:

*I received this book for an honest review from the Publisher via Netgalley.*
