No artists, no smokers, no men with beards… Manhattan real estate broker Lottie Langerman feels confident that if she follows her long list of dating rules, she’ll meet The One and her life will unfold exactly as planned. Everything changes when her best friend decides to throw a fake bachelorette party—just to see what all the fuss is about—and Lottie reluctantly agrees to play the role of bride-to-be for a night.
Faking an engagement turns out to be more fun—and trouble—than Lottie could have imagined. Not only does her dream man think she’s taken, but Lottie keeps running into bearded Brooklyn jewelry designer Tyler, who breaks every single one of her rules…yet manages to get under her skin like no one else. Soon, Lottie finds herself at a crossroads where she must decide: Play it safe—or ditch the rules and follow her heart?

Lottie and Tyler.
This was a new author for me and I enjoyed her style of writing. It was a short, hot, hilarious little summer read and I look forward to discovering more books from Ms. Gigi.
Lottie was a fresh and fun single New Yorker who knows what she wants and won’t stray from it. She has a list of do’s and don’t when it comes to her future boyfriend/husband. What I always noticed with list’s is that you should make them and then immediately throw them away. Why? Because you either lose them in our purse or on the way to the store, or we end up finding something else (and often better) that completely deviates from the original list. Which is exactly what Tyler is, he checks off none of her boxes, however he is completely, insanely perfect.
Lottie discovers that when it comes to matters of the heart, you can’t make a list for it. You just have to close your eyes and jump in with both feet and your heart wide open and ready to accept love from a good man. Just because he looks different on paper (set check list on fire) doesn’t mean that he isn’t worth a shot.
I recommend this book to anyone who’s ever made a list and checked it twice.
