Book ~ "Ex-Girlfriends United" (2011) Matt Dunn

From ~ Ever wish there was a website where you could read reviews about someone you’re thinking of dating?

Dan Davis doesn’t. Because thanks to, Z-list TV personality and womaniser Dan isn’t having much luck with girls any more. Okay, so he’s treated a few women badly in his time but that’s just what men like Dan do, isn’t it?

But best friend Edward Middleton thinks it’s a great idea. Dumped in the past for being the typical clueless bloke, and determined not to suffer the same fate with new girlfriend Sam, Ed sees it as the perfect place to find out how to keep Sam happy.

Faced with the prospect of a lifetime of singledom, Dan sets off on a hilarious quest to track down his ex-girlfriends to find out how he can put things right. But will a man like Dan ever truly change – especially if the biggest change means actually listening to a woman? Meanwhile, Ed’s awkward attempts to move things forward with Sam make him realise that when it comes to relationships, unless you deal with your past, you can’t have much of a future …

This is the sequel to The Ex-Boyfriend's Handbook which I read a couple weeks ago ... Edward and Dan are back.

Edward is happy now dating his ex-trainer, Sam. Dan, on the other hand, can't get a date and it's because all the women he's dumped have rated him on a website called Slate Your Date. Edward comes up with a plan to have Dan make it up to every woman on the website so they'll erase the bad ratings.

Jane, Edward's ex-girlfriend who dumped him, returns and wants Edward back which sets off a huge chain of events.

Dan is still the same egotistical fella he was in the first book and Edwards is still his ever patient pal trying to turn him around.

It is an entertaining "guy-lit" book told from a man's perspective.

Haven't had a moment to spare in the past two weeks. Need to get my groove back.

I'm going to add the first book to my Amazon wishlist, and buy it next time around, sound better than the fluffy romantic chick lit that I can't stand.

It sounds interesting, I like books written by men, I don't particularly like books about men written by women, they don't come across quite real, I think.
