Boycotts and Barflies by Victoria Michaels

Book Blurb
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 control as they race down the path to true love. Winning isn't everything...or is it?
My Review
This was a very typical romance novel.  The characters fit their designated stereotypes, and the men were absolutely prefect, romantic, and flawless.  That said, the characters were still really fun and fluffy.  :)
Again, it was very typical, but still fun.  My only complaint was that their "by chance meetings" were so unrealistic- I have never run into a love interest so many times- fate only takes people so far in reality.  If you are able to suspend disbelief, it's still pretty enjoyable.
What's better than the perfect man who is absolutely in love with you from first sight?  Nothing!  The relationships were very cute.

I know this isn't the best review- it's been a couple weeks since I read it.  I thought it was a good, light read, and certainly fantastic for a debut author.  It's definitely worth a read. 3 stars
