Book Description/Synopsis:

What if you found yourself climbing out of a bedroom window, naked, in the middle of the afternoon, to avoid being caught in bed with your married lover? Would you have second thoughts about dating? After Shayla Ross discovers that yet another potential “Mr. Right” is, in fact, incredibly wrong for her, she decides to go on a diet. No. She’s not going to forgo her much-loved, sinfully-delicious girl scout cookies or her (admittedly too frequent) trips to McDonalds. Shayla is going on a dating diet. An incredibly hapless and infinitely loveable heroine, elementary school teacher Shayla Ross decides to take her summer vacation from teaching as a period of self-discovery. Much to the chagrin of her meddling mother, Shayla sets out to find herself and, in the process, bumbles into a series of successive funny and heartwarming interpersonal interactions that will have readers falling in love with her.

Mindy’s Review:

*I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review.*

Shayla Ross is an elementary school teacher. When summer comes she decides to do some self discovery. She decides it is time to go on a dating diet. No dating! No men! However, Shayla wants a relationship so bad and all she finds are Mr. Wrongs.

When she meets Dunkin she stresses that they cannot be anything more than friends. They hang out, go shopping and even go on a non-date.

This is not typically the kind of book that I read, but overall I enjoyed it. Her friendship with her best friend Brice is so much fun (which is really my favorite part). And you can’t help but to cheer on the budding relationship between her and Dunkin.
