Book Tour: Sam Cruz's Infallible Guide to Getting Girls by Tellulah Darling

Title: Sam Cruz's Infallible Guide to Getting Girls
Author: Tellulah Darling
Publisher: Te Da Media
Date of Publication: October 17, 2012


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 YA romantic comedy that follows these teens as they navigate the minefield of sex, love, and friendship. 

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

My Review


For anyone that has seen my previous reviews for Tellulah Darling's books you will know that I love this author.

I read this book as soon as I got it because it just sounded so good! Tellulah combines romance and comedy in her books and it just makes reading so much more enjoyable when the voice speaking to you through the pages has a sense of humour.

From the beginning we can see the Sam is a player but he also has such a close relationship with his best friend Ally. Ally has long since accepted Sam's behaviour but never wanted a life like that. When she gets dumped, however she asks Sam for help in becoming more like him.

The story unfolds as Ally becomes more confident and picks up on Sam's tips a lot quicker than he would have thought her capable of and she's better than he would like.

Their story is so cute and funny and frustrating all at once as we see both of their perspectives and how they come to terms with their feelings and what they want.

You should read this. Seriously. After writing this review I have decided that I'm going to go read it again.
