There was part of me that was really having an internal struggle about rating this so high because it was clearly a remake of . . . . .
But then I thought – how many freaking P&P retellings have I read (answer infinity) and it never seemed to bother me with any of those that they were based on another story so this one is getting nearly all the Starzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz because it was exactly what I wanted it to be.
As I ...more
Christoper tells EW she was inspired to write the novel after rewatching the 2003 rom-com and thinking about the film in light of shifting gender dynamics and dating practices. "I decided to gender-reverse it because a lot of the things guys do are things that put women off now, and there’s been a slight shift in millennial dating," she says. "Women aren’t doing that as much. They’re not thinking...more
I knew from the moment I first heard about this book that it would be a winner and I'm so glad that my instincts were right!
This book gave me everything I ever needed from a romantic comedy and the fact that it has a biracial heroine (finally a heroine I can truly relate to) was honestly icing on the cake. So many of the things that Hannah, our heroine, talked about were things that I had felt so much growing up and even now and having her talk about those things was honestly so validat ...more
Normally I can run through a romance in a day or two but this one has taken me a week. Maybe it’s because I feel like I’ve read it before. I got Major How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days vibes.

NOT THE GIRL YOU MARRY is a perfect contemporary romance. It will make you laugh and swoon and maybe even get a little weepy.
Hannah is a heroine for the ages, prickly, real, and worth fighting for. If only we could all have a Hannah in our corner.
I'm all for romances right now, especially when diverse characters are featured. This was such a cute re-make of How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days, I loved and enjoyed the tension and the games between Hannah and Jack. Please publishers continue publishing these stories from characters of different backgrounds because we need them and I devour these books up!!
I like how they both had their own career goal ...more
I feel like I could gush about this book for days. The ...more
I love when a romance has substance and this one did. Hannah is biracial and deals with the idea of fitting in and where she fits in. I got a much better understanding of the experiences of people in different ethnic groups.
Jack is a journalist and he wants to do something different, so he convinces his boss to let him write a piece on How to Lose a Girl. Hannah needs a guy to show her b ...more
Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for the ARC in exchange for my review.
