How to Win a Guy in 10 Dates


Hello there everyone! Welcome to my stop on the How to Win a Guy in 10 Dates blog tour.

How to win

What it’s about:

The 10 Date Challenge
Day 1: Take one loaded commitment-phobe explosives expert, embarking on the impossible–a challenge to have ten dates with one woman.

Day 5: Add in a fiercely independent and feisty burlesque teacher who has sworn off men.

Day 10: She’s so not his type and he’s so not in her life-plan. But the heat is sizzling and the attraction is explosive. And they’re fighting it all the way….

Note to self – read the blurb!

I was in for a surprise when I read this book. I read most Harper Impulse books, I absolutely love the line and as I said before they really are knocking it out of the park lately. The fact that their titles are being brought by Harper over to America backs up what I have been saying all along. Well done all! Anyway, as I was saying I read most Harper Impulse books so I had this loaded up on my Kobo and on my TBR list. Then I got an email about this blog tour so I signed up, sure I was going to read it anyway. That turned the book from one I was probably going to read into one I had to read. SO…..I didn’t bother to read the blurb. Sure what’s the point. Sometimes I like to go down the ‘don’t judge a book by it’s cover route’ and give myself no expectations.

What I thought I was reading; A fluffy romance novel. Kind of corny in places but a nice read.

What I actually read: A hot as hell, sexy and exciting story! A leading lady with a bit of sass and alot of internal conflict – a man doesn’t fit in with her life plan, so why is he fitting in like a missing jigsaw piece? A leading man that you just want to eat for breakfast with his own internal conflict. He doesn’t need a woman – so why the hell does he want her so much.

The trials and tribulations of Millie and Ed are highly entertaining and may leaving you em, what can I say, wanting? Yea that’ll do – if you know what I mean 😉 How to Win a Guy in 10 Dates is a cheeky little story that will grip you from start to finish. It’s not the first time I was surprised after reading a book, but it’s probably the first time I was so brilliantly surprised. I loved the one liners, the humour, the intimacy and the raciness. I just loved the whole damn book. Well done Jane Linfoot on giving us fluid and easy going read! This book was simply an effortless read.

About Jane Linfoot


I write fun, flirty fiction, with feisty heroines and a bit of an edge. Writing romance is cool, because I get to wear pretty shoes instead of gumboots. I live in a mountain kingdom in Derbyshire, England, where my family and pets are kind enough to ignore the domestic chaos – happily, we’re in walking distance of a supermarket. I love hearts, flowers, happy endings, all things vintage, most things french. When I’m not on facebook, and can’t find an excuse for shopping, I’ll be walking, or gardening. On days when I want to be really scared, I ride a tandem.

All Booked Out

Welcome back, did you all have a nice weekend? It’s a pity it always seems to go so fast. Though it being Monday means that we continue on with the September feature. Today is the turn of All Booked Out.

Tell us a little about your blog

My blog was started fairly recently, July 2013, only because a health issue has allowed me to read more (yes!!!) I love reading, have all my life, i love the smell, feel, look….here i go waffling!! Anyway, I wanted to share that and share Authors work, their covers. I am amazed that they can get their stories out of their heads and thank them for the many hours they have given to me and millions of readers who escape into these worlds they create for five minutes to hours a day. As an only child, I think Books were a very important part of my early childhood and are a part of some of my early and happiest memories.
I don’t go into in depth reviews, as i don’t let reviews sway me so would not want one of mine to sway someone else. It is all personal choice.
I also share my other interests which are Photography and digital design.

Vina Jackson: Eighty Days Yellow. Made me Mad for being compared to Fifty Shades. Don’t compare to Fifty Shades when it is not really like Fifty shades. I didn’t dislike it, i gave it 3/5, but i was thinking… Mr Grey Would NEVER SHARE! He had a bit of Romance in him at least….

Everyone i have read last, but some are already in the pipeline… Playing With Her Heart by Lauren Blakely. One scene i can already see on the big screen, it is a hero moment!

Tough one as the main characters all have their reasons for being that way, I like all the main characters….they all need a damn fine shaking every now and then, so who needs that the most…..
Emma at the end of Barely Breathing, that was a cliffhanger that made me want to bitch slap her, shake her and scream at her to go back!!! go back!! But then what would I have just finished reading??? I do like to be tortured with cliffhangers 😉

What book boy would you like to have your way with ;)?

Seriously! i think you have missed an s of the Boy…… as you don’t mean just Boy do you??
My husband knows i like the tottie on the Book Covers, he sees what i share and post on my website 😉
