At thirty, Grace O'Bryan has dated every loser in Daytona Beach. After the ultimate date-from-hell, Grace decides to turn her dwindling book club into...more
Grace had a bad date - the blurb touted it as the worst date she had ever had, but my reaction to it was huh? really? that's it? - so she came up with the idea to change her bookclub into a club that would review boyfriends. Now if this sounds like a good idea to you, to air out your dirty laundry like that in front of others, perhaps you will like this book. As for me, I didn't c ...more

"The Boyfriend of The Month Club" is an average chick lit novel. I was looking forward to reading this book, so I am very sad to say that I was bored by it. All the main characters are very well developed, relatable, and charming. The premise is good. Yet, I could never quite get into the story. It never drew me in. The whole novel felt a bit ambiguous. I kept waiting for that clincher, which would make the entire book an incredible 5 star read, but it never came.

Grace is not having a good day at all. Everything is going wrong: her period came, her dress was a petite, she chipped her tooth, and she finally found her date for the night.
She tracked Brandon down at an Irish pub and she was the only female in the bar.
They had met in zumba class and the guys had fun with that comment.
She works at the Florida Charlie tourist store and her Cuban father and grandmother run the place and she helps.
One of the guys that wa ...more
BooksparksPR had given me Geraci's latest novel, A Girl Like You, to review. I really enjoyed it. Well they had a promotion where if I signed up for 4 books to review, I could choose 3 just for me from their stockpiles. So when I saw her 1st novel, I snatched it up!
I wasn't even planning on reviewing it. But seriously, this book made me laugh and cry. Grace has an Irish father and a Cuban mother, but there's no confusion with heritage. She works for her father at the lon ...more
Anyone who loves classic romances will love this book. Geraci plays off all these books, ...more

Just finished. Glad to say the book didn't get any WORSE but sad to say it still only gets 2 stars. There were a few parts that moved really quickly - hence the finished book. I felt like it wa ...more

But then their little club gets out of control when hundreds of women hear about this and join...while these ladies may be providing some insider tips to one another, things get really personal for Grace whe ...more

Thank you for the giveaway win, goodreads! This book looks terribly cute and funny. I really haven't read too much chick-lit, but one of my new years book resolutions was to expand my genres past my usual comfort zones (YA urban fantasy, paranormal romance, dystopian). To that end, I am looking forward to reading and reviewing this one. And, I must admit, the Florida girl in me enjoys reading books taking place in he ...more
However, overall the book was good. It held a lot of narrative in quite a few places which seemed to slow the story down in some parts. However, I would recommend this book to anyone who's ever been done wrong by ...more
So it all begins with a horrible first date and Grace O'Bryan has had enough. A brilliant idea of rating the men in Daytona Beach with her friends has turned their book club into a boyfriend club. The club though needs some spice, so they compare the men to those of literary greats (think Mr Darcy). It isn't long before the ...more
I thought this book started out funny and real, you meet Grace, a 30 year old who is dating. Throughout the book you get to know her more as she dates other guys and there's two from the past trying to get her back, and one she just met trying to get to know her too. I thought it ended well and was well wrote, but the middle of the book I got bored. I ended up finding the main character kinda annoying.
