Everyone we see around us has secrets of the never to be spoken of life changing kind. They keep them hidden deep inside their hearts and only bring out the memories when they cannot hold back the pain, but never in plain view of those around them, showing the world the box of the past will simply mean that they are weak. For once they made the mistake of a lifetime it not only changes them but forces them to harden their hearts in order to never get broken again.

How to Win a Guy in 10 Dates by Jane Linfoot

This is a charming story full of humour and emotion. The strong characters and beautiful settings make 'How to Win a Guy in 10 Dates' original and memorable.

Ed is an explosives expert and Millie is a companion/pet-sitter/dance artist/entrepreneur. The plot is woven with twists which hold the reader's interest.

Ed a serial womaniser is bet by his sister and best friend that he cannot take a woman out on 10 ordinary dates. On the surface this is a callous playboy bet with scant regard for the woman in the equation. In

We all love a good old soppy romance book don't we? This is exactly what How To Win A Guy In 10 Dates is. Purely nothing but cheese, romance & a good old fashioned kiss chase.

We start by meeting billionaire big bang boy Ed making a deal with his best friend and sister that he could diminish his playboy ways and date a girl longer than the usual hi, dinner, drink, bed, bye scenario he is used to. The stakes are high and by fluke accident we see him meet strong willed Millie Brown and the be

This was a fun and lighthearted romance, a touch of England, the magic of Provence and two characters who are clever, fun and utterly clueless about their growing attraction.

Ed is the head of a large explosives company, son of a well-to-do family, his sister and best friend have set him a challenge. Give up the playboy love ‘em and leave ‘em lifestyle, date one woman, ten times, never tell her that he has money, and see what happens. Thinking himself Teflon coated and that his disbelief in love

How to Win a Guy in 10 dates was one of those books that was entertaining enough but not memorable. Before writing this review I had to go over all the notes I took because I just couldn’t remember much about this one. As a book blogger I read an insane amount of books and if it doesn’t stand out then it will just be forgotten.

The storyline was interesting enough but nothing particularly new. I thought the writing and world building wa

ARC Received from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review

This was the first book I have read by Jane Linfoot and I have to say I like her easy going style.

The story itself was a light-hearted adult romance with rather funny moments in it. A nice easy read that doesn't take too much thinking about.

Take one Millionaire (Ed) with major commitment issues who never dates the same girl twice. Add a rather scatty woman (Millie) who has only ever had one previous relationship which end

What a fabulous Romantic Comedy from a New to Me Author, Jane Linfoot. Ed (or Mitch) was everything I love in a hero, charming, sexy and a bit of a bad boy. Millie was a great match for him and a fun-loving heroine, with Spunk and Serious Backbone when it came to Ed....well....most of the time. Sometime her body would do the thinking for both of them.





This was such a fun romance, with a hint of heartache, and a little adventure mixed in. This could Totally be a movie for Hallma

This was a another cute book that was a quick read. Millie is a head strong woman who knows what she wants. And that doesn't include ever falling in love again. Ed is a rich man who is convinced to take a challenge of going on 10 dates with the same woman.

Millie doesn't bend easily to what Ed wants and both are a little guarded.

At the end I took away bring true to yourself and not changing for others.

I received this arc in return for an honest review.

Big bangs and a firecracker! When Millie and Ed meet it's more squealers than Catherine Wheels of excitement at the outset. But when the challenge is laid down the fuse is lit and a sparkling set of dates take off.

Neither are looking for a relationship but that shouldn't stop the no-strings sex should it? You'll just have to find out.

Do you love a Rom Com like I do? Do you extra-love one in which the two key players are both smart and vying to come out on top while getting what they each want? This is the kind of book How To Win A Guy In 10 Dates is. Games, fun, attraction, and wit... all leading up to the big satisfactory happy ending that every Rom Com and Chick Lit promises.

Ed, and uber-powerful businessman, is challenged by his sister to settle down, act right, and give dating the right woman a fighting chanc

For those that like Sophie Kinsella style books, this is a cute story about a guy determined to prove he won't fall for a woman...even after ten dates and a girl trying to keep to her vow of "no men" despite what she might think about the one the seems to be pursuing her.

Ed Mitchum's sister thinks it's time for him to find a more permanent woman, rather than having the revolving bed he does with woman only interested in his money. To prove a point, Ed makes a bet with this sister and

Very slow to start with a mixture of lies and love. I started to get interested toward the end and would have enjoyed reading more of what will come of the future.

How to Win a Guy in 10 Dates is a quick read full of fun, steamy sex and heart tugging moments. This isn't my first novel by Linfoot and I have to say I love her writing style, it's so easy to slip between the pages and get completely involved in her world.

I didn't like Ed to begin with. Here we had a serial womaniser, who took delight in never bedding the same woman more than twice, embark on a bet/challenge to date a woman without falling in love. The fact that he never once discl

I was actually slightly surprised by this book; by the title I has assumed that it would be taken from a females perspective, however it turned this slightly on its head and instead focuses on the ways that the two connect with each other through the dates, focusing mainly on the male main character. It did take me by surprise for the first couple of chapters but I warmed to the premise of the book very quickly.

*Book provided by the author in exchange for an honest review*

Ed is the typical macho guy, only dating for fun and he doesn’t want a serious relationship. Oh and did I mention he’s a billionaire?
He starts a bet with his sister Callie and he’s best friend Will, who’d like to see him date a girl longer than one night ending in bed.

He meets Millie Brown in an accident kind of way and the y bet starts. I liked Millie instantly, she’s independent, knows what she wants. S

Firstly, thank you to Jane for sending me a copy of this to review.

This is the second of Jane’s books that I’ve read, although it is actually her first novel.

The story follows two main characters Ed and Millie. Ed makes a bet with his sister and friend that he won’t fall in love after 10 dates and sets out to find the perfect girl not to fall for. Millie literally gets blown off her feet by Ed and the story goes on from there.

Ed is sure he can win the challenge. All he has to do is have 10 dates with the same woman and not fall in love. He decides to hide who he really is and finds the perfect woman to complete his challenge. Millie doesn't like rich men and wants really no part of any man. She has been hurt in the past and doesn't want to go there again. They both can't deny they have plenty of sizzle but don't want anything more than a benefits. They both will try their best to stay away from any true feelings. ...more

How to Win a Guy in 10 Dates was about commitment-phobe, doesn’t know what love is, Ed Mitchum, as he attempts to go on ten dates with the same woman as part of a bet set by his sister and best friend. With some interesting twists mixed in too, this book was really enjoyable.

The story flowed well – it was light hearted, fun, flirty and entertaining. Jane Linfoot writes the sort of books I love – fast paced, saucy and smile-inducing. How to Win a Guy in

This book is a hot and steamy romance set over ten dates between Ed (serial one night stand man) and Millie (independent girl with no time for men).

Ed has been challenged by his sister to date the same girl ten times, with certain rules and conditions, and after an accident brings them together, Millie becomes that girl. They end up spending time alone and sharing a few smoldering meals as Ed ticks off his dates and reports back to his meddling sister. Their emotions are kept in check until the

Take a man who doesn't care to commit, and a few friends and family members that put him up to a little challenge. What's the end result? Well, readers find that out at the end of this book. What, you thought I was going to spoil the fun? Ha! Nope! Not even if you paid me....well, if it was a million dollars...Okay, no. Because no one in their right mind would pay me that kind of money when they could just take some time and read this fun, quirky book for themselves.
