A laugh-out-loud debut novel that will delight fans of Bridget Jones' Diary and HBO's Girls
Love by the Book charts a year in the life of Lauren Cunningham, a beautiful, intelligent, and unlucky-in-love 28-year-old American. Feeling old before her time, Lauren moves to London in search of the fab single life replete with sexy Englishmen. But why can't she convince the men she's seeing that she really isn't after anything more serious than seriously good sex? Determined to break the curse, Lauren turns her love life into an experiment: each month she will follow a different dating guide until she discovers the science behind being a siren. Lauren will follow The Rules, she'll play The Game, and along the way she'll journal her (mis)adventures and maybe even find someone worth holding on to.
Witty, gritty, and very true to life, Love by the Book will have you in stitches.
I thought it was very witty and cute. It is just plain entertaining which is what I look for in a book, good characters and a funny plot that you can engage in.

I really enjoyed this book and how different it was at least to me. It kept me listening and laughing. I would recommend it for a light, easy and fun read.
Worst possible chick lit, this was a waste of the two hours I spent listening to it. I didn't bother to hear any more drivel. Had this been a paper book I purchased I would have gladly set fire to the rubbish and been done with it.
This book was well narrated. I really appreciate that. It was a fun premise and I loved finding out that it was based on a true story from the author's life.
What disappointed you about Love by the Book?
It was really ridiculous and unbelievable. The main character had very little self respect and it showed....trashy.
What do you think your next listen will be?
Would you be willing to try another one of Jayne Entwistle’s performances?
I LOVED the Narrator...the story was horrible but Jayne was awesome!
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
I will let you know if I think of one.
