Boycotts & Barflies This was really bad Really, really bad With the high rating, I thought it might be a cute book I could flip through easily Wrong First off, this is badly written I kept thinking this must have been some kind of fanfic that got published because somebody was being nice the day this landed on their desk Everything was just so sappy and unrealistic Did the characters even have any faults Every person is described as perfect chiseled abs, amazing body, the opposite sex constantly hitting on This was really bad Really, really bad With the high rating, I thought it might be a cute book I could flip through easily Wrong First off, this is badly written I kept thinking this must have been some kind of fanfic that got published because somebody was being nice the day this landed on their desk Everything was just so sappy and unrealistic Did the characters even have any faults Every person is described as perfect chiseled abs, amazing body, the opposite sex constantly hitting on them It gets ridiculous I kept thinking there has to be something the author is going to include to make me sympathize with the characters No WellI think she tried I really did For some reason, Grace is incredibly self conscious even though she has an incredible body with killer curves I mean how could you forget Her friends reassure her of this every chapter And there were moments when Grace would just suddenly burst into tears In fact, this happened with every girl in the book It was like the author thought Oh This is a sad situation Let me just put real quick here that all the girls had tears streaming down their cheeks and that should be good I just kept rolling my eyes at how contrived it all was And the way the girls behave is completely annoying There are too many examples to list but it was beyond unbelievable Like they re thirteen and just had their first kiss Ugh For the love of God, do not waste your time on this book It s horrible I had to force myself to finish this I am so glad I m done with this garbage After an endless string of bad dates and a generally pathetic love life, Grace Park and her friends decide to boycott men for six weeks With a fantastic pair of shoes on the line for the woman who makes it to the end without breaking any rules, the competition gets fierce Sparks fly a few days into the bet when Grace and her friends cross paths with a sexy bartender named Michael Andris who happens to have a little bet of his own going with his friends In this hilarious debut novel, Victoria Michaels brings us a colorful and relatable cast of characters She sends them on a sweet and sexy escapade as they sidestep one booby trap after another, manage the best of misguided intentions, and exert a whole lot of willpower and self

Ryan, Michael and Jack Michael, Ryan and Jack all 26 have been best friends since forever, like the girls they are extremely close and tight, with different personalities but the ability to bag the shit out of each other and laugh about it They are currently working as full time bartenders to learn the ropes so they can open their own Working at a bar well that Barflies They are sick of dumb plastic girls Of course they flirt to get a bigger tip but they are over playing around So they come up with their own bet The No Barflies Rules 1 If they meet a woman at the bar she is off limits 2 No Sex The last guy to have sex wins They also put money into a kitty to make it a real wager Straight to the point these guys Now let the fun begin As these 6 people cross path s and start falling for each other You will laugh your ass off There is the library, the football game, pizza, the bar one scene the boys do a lot of cocktail flair tricks for the girls OMG they do it to Kid Rocks So Hott seriously you tube that song , the girls house and the Xbox, the Gym, Christmas, snow storms, weird stalkers, playing pool and just other random meetings that aren t dates As they start to couple off Michael finds loopholes in the girls rules and even negotiates some new rules in there with Meg, so that he can spendtime with Grace Including ONE no holds barred kiss with tongue one by one they start teaming up and trying to make the other couples cave so that they can be together You just have to see how it all plays out Ok so in all honestly this book was fluffy There was steam but only one real sex scene A lot of sexual chemistry but due to the Boycott it didn t happen So hence my wording fluffy There was also nothing wrong with the boys or the girls No deep inner something that happened when they were younger, no father mother issues etc Well except for Grace s insecurity Just a fun read Bianca has long red hair, blue eyes, lush eyelashes, curvy body, and killer legs She was also strong, sexy and in control And throws a mean punch Meg average in height, small framed, chocolate hair but changed frequently Deep blue eyes was just that girl that everyone likes And also sexy and strong and shopping obsessed, as well as believed in the HEA all her life Grace long black hair, average height, was insecure but hilarious Michael oh wow Michael daydreaming about Michael Smart, popular, gave the pizza place s number instead of his own if wasn t interested Deep blue eyes, dark brown messy hair and a total sweetheart Jack large frame, well defined muscles, playful big bro type He was damn funny and perfect for Bianca Ryan the strong silent type a real gentleman and a self proclaimed romantic, long blonde hair and ice blue eyes, he was just beautiful The boys weren t the usual book boyfriends I fall for They weren t all Alpha male and Mine Mine Mine, but you still felt there jealousy and that their girls were theirs I burst out laughing SOOO many times in this., So I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who believes in HEA and just wants to smile the whole time they read it I m def going to check out Victoria Michaels other works It s the kind of book I would love to watch as a Rom Com Movie Fav QuotesA red Dot on a white canvas isn t a representation of a woman s struggle in a man dominated society, it s a red freakin circle Jack to the boys I m going to my room to die now I ll be drowning myself in the shower, washing the layers of embarrassment and humiliation away It might take a few days Grace Of course I get the feeling that they could spin in a circle and say TA DA and you d be happy Vicki to the girls It s all fun and games until some creeper rubs his penis on my leg, huh, Michael Grace Stay away from her Don t look at her don t even think about her If she appears in your dreams, wake up and punch yourself in the face for me Come near her again, and I ll cut your nuts off and put them in a jar on my mantle Do we understand

I really enjoyed this light fun fluffy romance and would recommend it to anyone wanting something light and fun I ve barely given one star to a book But I just can t help for this one The reason why I started reading this book is because, you know in Goodreads there is a section People who like this book also like the column on the right side See that Nah When I finished Wallbanger and had written the review, I peeked at the right column, saw this book, clicked the title and WHOAAA Its rating is four point something This must be good The first pages were really okay Funny and hilarious I ve barely given one star to a book But I just can t help for this one The reason why I started reading this book is because, you know in Goodreads there is a section People who like this book also like

something This must be good The first pages were really okay Funny and hilarious I started to believe this book would be another Wallbanger But later on, it was getting so painful for me but I kept reading because of the reviews FOUR FREAKIN POINT SOMETHING MUST NOT LIE TO ME IT WONT IT JUST WONT Just when I thought anything could be better Wrong Badly written, everything just cheesy, sappy and unrealistic The characters ALL OF THEM I repeat ALL OF THEM seemed very flawless, too perfect, and you wont find people like this in the real life Maybe one or two, BUT NOT SIX OF THEM The characters also very, very childish, annoying and again unrealistic.Too many coincidence, too many unnecessary scenes, too many repeated things.Seriously, do not waste your time on this book It s horrible If it was not because I had completed almost half of the book, I wouldn t continue to read it Even I had to force myself to finish this Save your precious time by skipping this book is the best advice that I can give you I know, like, 50 Koreans and 3 of them are named Grace Park Seriously So when I read the summary of this book, I got super excited An Asian American lead In a book that has nothing to do with Kim Jong Il, the Korean War, or karate Well, you know what they say about people who assume.No, no, there s no mention of the Dear Leader, the war, or ninjas but there s no mention of any Asians either Grace Park could easily be Grace Smith and the author wouldn t have to change anything in the sto I know, like, 50 Koreans and 3 of them are named Grace Park Seriously So when I read the

no, there s no mention of the Dear Leader, the war, or ninjas but there s no mention of any Asians either Grace Park could easily be Grace Smith and the author wouldn t have to change anything in the story This was a disappointment to say the least because there was no other draw to this story for me The plot about three female roommates who decide to boycott men after some horrendous dates isn t particularly unique or noteworthy The three perfect men they meet, bartenders of course, aren t special either.Still, I m a sucker for a good romantic comedy so not all was lost I got over my disappointment and settled in for some light reading There s a scene early on where the guys, who are sick of only attracting drunken barflies at work, decide to head to the library to meet nice girls I think there was a Saved by the Bell episode with the same premise, but hey, I liked Zack Morris back in the day That s where the guys meet Grace, who is helping her librarian friend reshelve books One of the guys is dared to ask Grace where the Playboys are Poor Screech Thus begins a series of coincidental encounters where Grace and her friends meet Zack, Slater, and co.After about the 5th encounter, I noticed that I wasn t even halfway through my Kindle book I checked online and saw that it was FOUR HUNDRED AND TWENTY TWO pages Now, unless one of the characters is a dragon or a unicorn, there is NO reason for a romance to be 400 pages It reminded me of an episode of Sports Night where Jeremy has to cut his first highlights package for a game He asks Casey to look over his work and Casey tells him after watching 8.5 minutes of clips that should ve been 30 seconds Make it shorter Jeremy I don t know what to do Casey Make it shorter Jeremy I ve tried everything Casey You should try making it shorter Jeremy I can t imagine what I d cut This is the conversation Victoria Michaels should ve had with her editor Apparently, this book started out on a fan fiction website I m not biased against self published books, hello Angelfall , but this could ve benefitted from tighter editing Had this book been 200 pages less, I probably would ve given it 4 stars It s cute and cotton candy fluffy, but 422 pages of I love you made me want someone to die Violently.2.5 stars Do people give this book 5 stars because they don t want to hurt someone s feelings Either that, or all of the readers are 14 and this is the life they dream about The entire premise is based on which girl can avoid a date sex with some guy they met less than a month ago Noreally That s the big bet The prize is a pair of shoes A nice pair of shoes, but shoes nonetheless Really The down times between all the sexual angst and frat boy hijinks are spent sharing intimate details usuall Do people give

sexual angst and frat boy hijinks are spent sharing intimate details usually while huddled together in panties and a t shirt punctuated with a lot of screaming In my head, it sounds like a bad roller coaster ride full of junior high girls Maybe it s because I m old and mildly grown, but I m going to A Buy whatever shoes I want and B Shag whenever I want and C NOT squeal in delight with anyone about either Who does that Bleh I found myself skipping over much of the wasted details It s depressing to think about a bunch of 20 somethings thinking anything about this book is a good idea As an addition who s the editor The errors are almost as depressing as the premise
