Why the hell can’t chicks be more like guys?

That question plagues high school senior Sam Cruz. Sam is perfectly happy being a player. He just wishes girls wouldn’t change the game from sex to relationships. It makes him look like an asshole. But when Sam’s best friend, Ally Klinger, gets dumped, she begs him to transform her into someone who can screw around then screw off. No risk of heartbreak that way. It’s Sam’s chance to create the perfect female AND cheer up his best friend. Armed with Sam’s Three Step Guide to Backseat Success, Ally gets the game better than Sam thought she would and before long, Sam has his wish: the female version of himself. Too bad it’s driving him nuts. Told from Sam’s and Ally's alternating POVs, Sam Cruz’s Infallible Guide to Getting Girls is a fast-paced romantic comedy that follows these teens as they navigate the minefield of sex, love, and friendship.

This book contains strong language, drinking, euphemisms, and lots of “bow chicka wow wow.”

I will say that Tellulah Darling, a new YA author to me, is definitely one to watch.  This book is a to-read for anyone who LOVED The Duff by Kody Keplinger.

Sam Cruz, our hero, is your typical teenage boy, yes, that means sex is on his brain at all times.  He is a full on "player" as some would say, and he has a set of rules that keeps the ladies at arms length, until he starts seeing his best friend, Ally, as more of a female and less of his best friend.

Ally Klinger is tired of being the "nice" girl, and after being dumped by her granola boyfriend, she decides that she is going to try out "bad" for a while.  Unfortunately that means falling into bed with her best-friend, Sam, which changes everything between them.

This was a cute, realistic view of what can happen when sex comes between two best friends, especially when love gets in the way.  I really enjoyed the interactions between Sam and Ally, and that we are able to read from both of their POV's. 

Super-fun read, and I hope you all will give it a chance!!

Enjoy and Happy Reading!!
