The bookworm’s guide to dating is a fun book with friends to lover’s romance theme. This is the first book in a new contemporary rom/com series by Emma hart. 

Kinsley and her two friends own a bookstore in the small town. Kinsley is bookworm and would love to read romance novels. She is afraid she may not find man in real life as she has set high standard for man based on novels and would not settle for less. Josh is her bothers best friend and has secretly harbored romantic feelings for Kinsley for years but has never acted on them. 

When Kinsley decides to take dating life seriously and signs up in online dating app, Josh volunteers to help her by being her dating guide. In helping her match make he is planning to act on his own crush towards her. Plot takes a quick detour post that. It’s a quick read which makes you smile, has lots of love with some quirky realistic characters. 

Some parts of humor in the book comes from the retirement home where all their grandparents live. To an extent they are crazy oldies. I liked Josh’s loyalty and his character felt realistic. Kinsley was sightly weird and has her own quick which makes the read interesting

Some secondary characters were very interesting. Plot moved in steady pace. Narration is simple with clean and crisp writing. 

Over all, a cute rom –com which will make you smile throughout. Give it a try and decide for yourself. Happy reading.

What I wanted for my birthday: Books.
What I got for my birthday: my brother’s best friend playing matchmaker.

Let it be known that I, Kinsley Lane, am one hundred percent against being set up with somebody.
And I’m one thousand percent sure that Josh Carter is not the man to find me a boyfriend.
I mean, if I’m so great, why isn’t he the one dating me? (For the record, I don’t know the answer. That’s just what the guy on the internet asked.)
Still, I’ll humor him. If I go on his little dates, he’ll teach my bookish, introverted self how not to be totally, completely, utterly, unforgivably awkward on every single one of them.
And all I have to do is fall in love with one of the lovely gentlemen he’s serving up for me on a silver platter–all of whom fit my very specific guidelines.
Simple, right?
It would be.
If only I could stop falling for Josh.
