    A sweet, fun romance.

    I have to say I read this when I was really sick and could hardly breathe! Thank goodness I had this book to cheer me up because it is a true romantic comedy that does make you laugh..well okay..for me it was wheeze, cough and splutter..but the same thing! At first you think this woman’s life can’t get any worse then she goes on a blind date from hell! Even though Melinda is not batting a high average or even an average of any sort in the dating department she is determined to find her ‘Forever man’ and valiantly moves forward with the help of her best friend, Chris. Chris is such a fun character and one that really does radiate sunshine and sparkles. Honestly, he is a huge part of the humorous element and I could read about him all day long. Mindy, is very self demeaning. She has a past that has shaped her like this but it’s hard to read her putting herself down even in a joking manner. She is an extremely likeable character so you can’t help but feel protective of her, even from the barbs she shoots at herself. One of the funniest parts was the way she describes how her beaver, called..Miss Priscilla 😂..doesn’t like to roam free and hang loose! Too funny, such a fabulous way with words. Then there is this... “Is Arlie a food artist who makes your tongue orgasm and your stomach want to light up an orgasmic cigarette after digestion?” A fun, light touch that aids the storytelling. This light romance is very sweet and loads of fun, easy to read and leaves you feeling fantastic.

    Fun and romantic

    I quickly came to like "Mindy" (Melinda) as the story is told from her point of view, and it definitely works. She's fun, quirky, and shares her moments and inner most thoughts, perfectly. The thoughts that no one would dare say out loud. I love her friendship with Chris. It just works. This story is fun, and romantic, and I absolutely loved it. I really liked her bouts of "first dates." Brooks always pens a good story, and I think this may be one of my favorites by this wonderful author. The characters have a great chemistry and I like that there is a back story that lends to the type of characters they are. I love how she describes her best friend, and eyes (or pervs) men's backsides. It's a great story, I read from beginning to end.

    Loved!

    4.5 STARS!!! That Guy was a laugh out loud fun Rom Com. This was a very entertaining and hilarious beach type read. Arlie and Mindy were awesome characters. I loved that Arlie, the gorgeous fit gym guy meets Melinda, the clumsy out of shape weird girl. The storyline was awesome and so easy to read. The quirky lines that stay with you after reading. And you can’t forget Chris the best friend you all would love to have! I definitely recommend this Rom Com!

    You will Laugh out Loud

    I won a copy of this book in a contest. I was very sick with strep throat and a sinus infection, feeling miserable and cooped up in bed. I decided I needed a pick me up so I started to read That Guy. I absolutely loved it! At times I was laughing out loud so hard I would end up in a coughing fit with tears running down my face. The characters are all wonderful, especially Chris. I SO wish I had a friend like Chris in my life. Also, I don’t know if I can ever look at KFC the same way ever again! If you love a funny, light hearted rom-com with sassy, funny and sexy characters, then this is truly the book for you.

    great read

    I love these two and their humor. It truly was a laughing out loud reading experience. She is not only physically clumsy, especially when uncomfortable but she is socially clumsy as well until him. Her bestie Chris is flamboyant and off the charts but also encourages her to return. He wants love and a chance encounter with her gives him the chance he has hungered for. This is a once in a lifetime experience and she will have to push her boundaries in all areas to open up to that guy. It's fun and I do mean laugh out loud fun and well written as this author is known for but the ending feels rushed. How do you go through that and not get answers first. With that being said from what I see I am the majority in that because it really was a good read.
