  • Kissing frogs? It’s all about the chemistry …

    This is a well written and humorous story about a millennial writer’s efforts to document her dating journey to find her own happily ever after. The premise is a good one. In today’s world of online and speed dating, I applaud the author in avoiding those clichéd hook-up venues and opting for instead (as some might say) old-fashioned methods of finding people to date. The resulting trials or dates that Vivian undertakes vary from the unexpected to the weird and wonderful and had me at times both shaking my head in disbelief, and laughing out loud at the antics. The relationship that developed between Vivian and Charlie was both sweet and loving. Charlie's definitely a prince - and a keeper! I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

  • Totally relatable!

    After finally reading The Cuffing Season, I had to go back and reread Fifty Frogs, the book that inspired that one. (I will say that each of these does work as a standalone, but you'll enjoy reading them together.) And I loved it as much the second time around as I did the first. Vivian has just come home from an amazing three-month writer-in-residency program where she blogged about how Millenials are doing travel differently. (And can I just say that I would like to sign up for one of these, please?) She comes home ready to pick her life up where she had left it, only to discover that it is all gone - her apartment, her parents and sister, her job, and her boyfriend. The boyfriend is probably the least unsettling, because she knew they just were not right for each other. But that comfort thing, ya know? Cue an entire life makeover. She moves in with her mom's best friend, affectionately known as Aunt Gail, and comes up with a column idea that she think will gain her some attention. Aunt Gail tells her that you have to kiss 50 frogs before you find your prince. So she decides to try out this theory and write about it all. She meets some of the craziest men and gets herself into some very interesting situations. According to the author, these are all somewhat based on her own daughters' stories. And let me tell you, I related to every single one of them. In fact, I think I need to write my own Fifty Frogs column. And of course, there is a great Meet Cute scene involving a very fine specimen of a seemingly normal man named Charlie. In fact, this book is part of a multi-author series called Meet Cute. I would like to have one of him, please! There are plenty of moments to make you smile, as well as to make you cringe in solidarity. It's a fun romantic comedy escape for an afternoon.

  • Funny sexy story

    This is one of my favourite rom-com! Vivian's life implodes whe she returns from her travelling the country by train. She lost her job , her parents sold their house amd are travelling across the national park in an RV for a year, her sister left for college, she lost her apartment and she lost her boyfriend! So she ends up living with her aunt Gail and became a receptionist at a dog grooming studio. One night she decides to write an article about dating for the milenials. Can this girl kiss enough frogs to meet her prince? Funny, witty banter and sassy women!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Enjoyable

    4 1/2 stars Cute, funny and pretty true! I loved the way the author wrote the story about dating and the hit and misses. Most of us have been there and it's not only women dating men but vice versa and same sex as well. It isn't young people but older people too. She took something we've all dealt with and wove it into an amazing story. Great book.

    Thanks for your feedback!
