This book was a surprise after seeing 10 rave reviews, because it reads like a pretty good first-attempt at a novel, that could use a judicious editor. I mean this review as concrit, because it's in need of polishing of it's mostly descriptive narrative, toning down of the 'jokey' style, which doesn't allow the reader to decide what's humorous and fleshing out of, and consistency in, the characters and their motivations, which would do the idea justice.

What a fun book this turned out to be. Steven is an immensely likable character, who you can't help but feel for. All he wants is someone to love and who will love him in return, but he has a knack for picking precisely the wrong men. Follow him on his hilarious journey as he bids farewell to his cheating boyfriend, then blunders from one disastrous relationship to the next in pursuit of happiness. Written with humor and in a style that is both lively and easy-to-read, this novel will have you laughing out loud all the way through.

Oh dear. What a disappointing novel.

The story is terribly thin, the writing is simplistic, the characters are poorly drawn and the humour is virtually non-existent.

I am baffled why eight people have so far written five-star reviews when I found the book so laborious.

Predictable, poorly written nonesence.

A light read which took about 90 minutes. Knowing many of the characters made it more amusing for me than possibly for others. I'd forgotten that this book had been written until a friend reminded me!

A thoroughly enjoyable read. I have a slight feeling that a couple of the more scathing reviews are from literary snobs of some sort. The book is a light-hearted, amusing look at the gay dating scene, and how wrong things can go from time-to-time. It's ever so easy to read, and provides plenty of smiles and the occasional laugh out loud moment.

The perfect read for a holiday, something to read on the bus or train, or in-bed reading. Sometimes it's just really nice to read the sort of book that is easy going and makes you smile: this is exactly that sort of book.

A must read for anyone who has ever been unlucky in love! The main character Steven has had more than his fair share of cringe-worthy dates yet still manages to maintain his romantic idealism, and more importantly his sense of humour! As Steven recounts his experiences over cocktails with his fun loving group of friends it is impossible not to laugh along with them at some of the outrageous situations he finds himself in! Reaching the end of the book left me wanting more. How much more drama lies ahead for Steven or will the next man be The One? I hope there is a sequel so that I can find out!

I did enjoy this but was finding it hard to read in places as things seemed very far fetched. However it was entertaining to read.

This is a must for your holiday reading list; funny, exciting and very easy to read. As the book description states, this 'Sex and the City' style story will have you laughing out loud! It's a definite page turner and it really leaves you wanting more. Does anyone know if there is a second book coming out?
