As you can probably tell, I am totally in love with these Cosmo Harlequin Red Hot Reads. I was drawn to this story because the main character decides to program and app to try and land a guy. Considering I will be starting up some new programming classes and am teaching myself all sorts of new things to better my skills, I figured I might have a bit in common with her.
Evie James is programming the app for Flirt magazine and decides to go to the bar to try it out. After striking out several times, one of the guys in the bar who had been watching her approaches her. Caleb is all about one night stands and after he brings her home and proves that the app does work – he can’t get him off of her mind.
He ends up figuring out a way to get closer to Evie and tries to get her to go out with him again. When it seems like things are going well and he lets her stay the night – he ends up throwing her out the next morning. Evie is hurt but realizes that Caleb is doing this for deeper reasons.
Can she find out what it is that is bothering Caleb and help him get through it to be with her?
The main reason I love these books is because they are so short and get right to the point – if you know what I mean. They are quick and easy to read and have a lot of action. But these are definitely for more mature readers.
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
About the Book
How to Land the Hot Guy 1.0
A multimillionaire by the age of 27, app developer Evie James is clueless when it comes to hooking up. So she does what any self-respecting geek-girl looking to get laid would do: she programs her own app for landing a hot guy. After a few failed attempts at making contact, beta testing leads her to Caleb Anderson.
Caleb is used to female attention, but finds himself attracted to Evie because of her unique brand of awkward. A master of one-night stands, he’s more than happy to show her what she’s been missing in the bedroom. But he quickly discovers that one night with a woman like Evie will never be enough for him…
