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.

My Thoughts:  Ok, just going to start off by saying this is NOT a book for the younger teens. There is a lot of sex going on in this one. That being said, I really enjoyed it! It was a bit easy to predict how the book would end though. Although, it didn't quite go how I was thinking it was going to go in middle of the story, it was better! This was one of those books that was hard for me to put down and I just dragged my Kobo around all day as I tried to get things done.

There are two PoV's in this book. The first being Sam Cruz, of course. Sometimes he is a bit crude and a pig, but that's his character. He's not looking for relationships, he just wants to have his way with the girls and leave them there. Ally, his best friend is the other PoV. Ally is the only girl that Sam won't even think about in that way. She is dumped (on her birthday, WTF! Jeremy is a JERK!!) and wants to become more like Sam to avoid the hurt in the future. He agrees and takes her for a makeover and helps her learn to be a seductress rather than the geek she is. Both characters are hilarious, making me laugh out loud with their banter. They know everything about each other and have been friends since they were babies. Sam might have bit off more than he can chew by doing such a great job changing Ally, she's like a sister to him and he shouldn't be having these unpure thoughts about her!! I really liked both characters (even if Sam is a player) and enjoyed seeing the struggle with the new sexual tension between them. Ally is almost Sam's only friend, he doesn't want to mess that up.

Overall, this book is a quick, fun read that will keep you laughing. Tellulah Darling definitely knows how to write some great entertainment. There are many sexual innuendos, sexual encounters and some drama. It's hard to put down and has a cute story, if predictable. There are a lot of little surprises and it's just great overall. This is definitely a book that I will be recommending (just not to younger teens!). I hope to read more from Tellulah Darling in the future!
