"A Girl Like You" by Gemma Burgess:
“I’ve discovered the secret to successful singledom. I’m acting like a man. And it’s working.” After breaking up with her boyfriend of, well, forever, Abigail Wood must learn how to be single from scratch. Her dating skills are abysmal, and she ricochets from disaster to disaster – until Robert, one of London’s most notorious lotharios, agrees to coach her. With his advice, she learns to navigate the bastard-infested waters of the bar scene and practices the art of being bulletproof. The new Abigail is cocky, calm, composed…but what happens when she meets her match? (Summary courtesy of Goodreads.)

Melissa A:
The way chick lit was meant to be. A fun and romantic story that I enjoyed the whole way through. Everyone I've recommended it to has agreed with me about how great it is. See my review for more details.

I'm not sure what it is but for whatever reason, this story doesn't do it for me. Perhaps it was your review about the swearing - hmmmm. Thanks for sharing.

This was another book that I won through CLC and I absolutely loved it! So funny and pure chick lit! I even recommended it to a friend who also enjoyed it. And Clary, this is MUCH better than the Ugly Truth.
