Book Description

26 July 2012
Sex in the City for boys. A light-hearted romp with a deeper exploration of male - female relationships. Billy Hanson is a reluctant Lothario: compellingly attractive to women but unable to maintain a relationship because of the temptations that lay before him. He joins the army to escape and quickly finds himself lost in the jungle. This is the story of a man's search for the one person that popular myth tells us is waiting, somewhere. The quest leads Billy to tropic islands, the Rocky Mountains, the streets of Northern Ireland and bars across the world. His search ends on the island of Aphrodite. There he gets petrol bombed. The Army Bitch is jealous. The she sends him to the desert.

Follow the romantic and military exploits of 'Our Hero' Billy Hanson as he stumbles from one escapade to another in various locations around the globe. A story that traverses the whole spectrum of emotions, at times moving and touching to the blatantly hilarious and debaucherous but at all times keeping the reader entertained and wanting to read more. A book for both men and women, I can't wait for the sequel!

"The Trouble with Girls" has been a delight to read on the train to and from work each day. I'm rather disappointed that I have finished it. It has made me laugh out loud (which raised eyebrows from the other commuters!), giggle like a school girl and have a fairly permanent grin on my face from ear to ear. The statement that Billy Hanson was a reluctant Lothario, I really do not believe. There was definately no reluctance! He loved all the attention and if he didn't ooze "Come get me" then he wouldn't have got so many girls. I really hope that Mr Cox can repeat this hilarious, light hearted approach in his next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funniest book i've read in for ages 28 Jan 2014
The Trouble With Girls

A highly entertaining male perspective of life as a reluctant lethario. Billy Hanson is our Yorkshire hero who finds that being an Army Officer is not quite the life of thrills and daring do he imagined and that despite his best endeavours and well meant intentions he cannot find Mrs Right. The more he yearns for a long term relationship built on mutual love and respect the more bizarre his experiences become and the more he realises that he really doesn't understand women ! A fantastic read that i could nt put down and i do hope there is sequel to follow as i cant believe Billys exploits stop here. Highly recommended

Travel with Billy Hanson as he journeys with the `Army Bitch' and gets into trouble with girls all over the world. Emily Fisher is an early fixture, and I love that she sees through his reserve and claims him. Billy doesn't exactly look for trouble with girls but fortunately, for the girls and Billy's reader, it finds him anyway. Our hero has many endearing qualities and a cute habit of linking his latest girlie interest's first name with his last name to check whether they fit together. I thought it was only girls who matched names that way, I never dreamed that macho infantry commanders, trained to kill, trained in jungle warfare and goodness knows what else, actually think about the relevance of a girl's name. Emily Hanson sounds all right to me, but hey? I don't have to marry her and anyway, my name's not Hanson.

These memoirs teem with wonderful, raw, honest touches and moving insights, including glimpses into Billy's early years as well as his military life in combat zones, when deployed in peace-keeping roles, and in training exercises. We get to visit Cyprus, Northern Ireland, Belize and many more as Billy pursues his career with the Army Bitch and a posse of women at his heels.
Utterly absorbing, I hope Jonny is writing more.

Elizabeth Woodham, to use a phrase quoted by Bridget Jones, just a little in love now really...

5.0 out of 5 stars So many happy memories! 8 May 2013
How to start with a review of this book, basically it's the blend of an Officer's career and his sex life. The Subtitle is When Temptation is too much to resist... and Jonny is subject to a lot of temptation throughout the book.
Jonny Cox, not his real name, was a serving Infantry Officer for 15 years if you believe the blurb, leaving after the invasion of Iraq. During his time, he would appeared to have served with his battalion in Belize, Northern Ireland and Cyprus, as well as side trips to Canada and a couple of posting to train recruits. Fairly standard except no mention of BAOR or GW1, though he nearly goes to the Balkans. I tried to work out which regiment he might have been, but my memory of who was where in the 90's has long gone!
The story is told with the humour you'd expect of a book of this type, a lot of short anecdotes and quoted conversations, all believable and none that were from the oft repeated barrack room story book, which gave the book authenticity as he was definitely the Army as the same time I was and he has the mood spot on.
He's obviously got the eye for the ladies, or if the book is to be believed, he doesn't actually have to do much they come flocking to him and yet no QARANC was mentioned at any stage and certainly not a busload of them. The ladies arrive and depart throughout the book, if you're looking for pornographically written sex scenes, then this isn't the book for you, but enough detail is given to spice up the book and to be able to differentiate the many lasses he beds and some he doesn't. It would interesting to know if he kept a little black book or it is all from memory.

By P J
Format:Kindle Edition
I down loaded this book a few days ago, I have finished it all ready ! I enjoyed it immensely and was unable to place the book down. I have recommended it to my friends and they have also started to read it. Mr Hanson sounds a handsome character who seems to be led astray! It has a good story, romance, naughtyness and humour. I found myself laughing out loud to the military banter and Mr Hanson's dry sense of humour! I really enjoyed it and hope there is a sequel!
