Have you ever hit rock bottom?
I embarrassingly have.
It’s why I’m wearing my girl's decorative scarf over my head, clutching her lady drink to my chest, and singing ever so softly to Joni Mitchell while swaying back and forth.
This is what therapists refer to as LOSING IT.
Oldest story in the book: boy meets girl, boy falls for girl, boy screws up MASSIVELY, girl tells boy to suffocate in the fruits of his very own unborn children.
Heard it before? I'm sure you have.
So what's so different about this story? Well, it's about me, The Modern Gentleman, New York City's top advice columnist, and my rather ungraceful downfall from my pristinely polished pedestal.
It's about a girl I met who threw all my proven theories to the wind and left me awkward, needy, and absolutely head-over-wingtipped shoes in love.
This is a story about June Lacy and how she single-handedly dismantled The Modern Gentleman.
I received an advanced copy of this book with the promise of an honest review.
Wes, aka The Modern Gentleman, has definitely met his match with June Lacy. He is used to meeting a woman and getting her number right away, but not with June. She really makes him work to get her number. I admit that I rolled my eyes at some of June's attributes and I won't give anything away, but I will say that it's 2020. I just had a hard time believing a few things about her. But that's just me.
I was able to get past those things and chalk them up to June's quirky personality. And honestly, they worked in her favor when it came to Wes. I really enjoyed the way their relationship played out. It was long and drawn out (not in a bad way), and at times very entertaining.
Meghan really knows how to bring the funny. I laughed numerous times while reading this book. Wes and June went on some dates that turned into hilarious anecdotes. Wes' friends Caden and Roman were quite funny and hopefully we will get their stories as well!
The Modern Gentleman is a quick read and if you're looking for something funny and light and you're a fan of Meghan's books, this one is for you.
