GIVEAWAY & REVIEW: Ex Girlfriends United by Matt Dunn


 Description


Ever wish you could let the world know just what you think of your ex?
Thanks to SlateYourDate.com, Dan Davis has discovered that long after he's dumped them, ex- after ex-girlfriend is dumping on him-all over the Internet. And it's ruining his dating life.

Faced with the prospect of a lifetime of singledom, Dan must track down his many exes in order to put things right. Along the way, he discovers he has much to learn about himself. Particularly when he meets up again with Polly-and realizes he wants her back. Can Dan convince his former love he's changed? Can his friend Ed convince him he needs to change in the first place? And can the two friends use their newfound knowledge to help other men in the same boat?

About the Author

Matt Dunn has written about life, love, and relationships for the Times, Guardian, the Sun, and a number of magazines, including Company, Cosmopolitan, Elle, Glamour, and Scarlet. But he prefers writing novels for a living, so please keep buying his books.

MY THOUGHTS
ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT

Dan is a low rung TV star that has just landed his perfect role in a soap opera. He finds woman are not throwing themselves at him as they should be with his new found glory.  His friend Ed finds him on a dating website that lets you rate your date and all of his previous dates have given him a ONE out of ten..  Dan enlists Ed to help him clean up his online persona and through a series of missteps that aren't quite honest, he learns that he must be truthful with himself to right everything. The story is told from the point of view of  Ed which leads to very original observations and a lot of very funny one liners. Ed's girlfriend, Sam, provides a great counterpoint to the whole situation especially when his ex arrives on the scene. There are some really sweet moments when Dan realizes that Polly is the "girl who got away" and he works on his issues to win her back.


This is chick lit from the mind of a man and really hits the mark. I haven't read The Ex-Boyfriend's Handbook, but I guess I will have to now since this really exceeded my expectations.  It is nice to have a romance like this told from a male viewpoint.  It is a wonderful story about second chances. If you have read and adored Nick Hornby like I have, you are going to love Matt Dunn.
