Sam Cruz's Infallible Guide to Getting Girls

Sam Cruz's Infallible Guide to Getting Girls - Tellulah Darling *Originally reviewed on Pages Of Forbidden LoveWhen I first signed up for NetGalley I was so excited to see what kind of titles they had and I stumbled upon this one. The second I read the summary I was like “Hell yes! This sounds like a fun read.” I expected it would be extremely funny and inappropriate (in a good way). Sometimes you need something that is just fun. I don’t like to read books that are very deep all the time. It was exactly what I wanted and what I expected.I was laughing from the very beginning after reading Sam’s Rules. You immediately get to know how this boy operates. Then I read the first lines of chapter one and laughed out loud. Honestly, to begin with I wasn’t sure if the book was going to be just cheesy funny or funny funny. It was a little of both but it was still very humorous. I laughed a lot throughout the book. Anyways, back to Sam. Sam was the hit it and quit it type. I kind of made Toot it and Boot it his theme song (I only know the chorus lol). He truly believes girls ruin everything by wanting a relationship and he wished they could be more like him.He isn’t all about just getting laid though. He is a actually a really great friend to Ally. They are best friends and the book actually alternates between their points of view. These two have known each other forever. They have established traditions, are comfortable with each other, and know how the other operates. Ally knows how Sam is so its no surprise that when her boyfriend dumps her she asks him to help her out. She wants to be more like him and its Sam’s chance to see if he can really make the “perfect” girl. Ally is super smart. She is an honors student and she also helps do research with Parrots. With that she doesn’t have much of a fashion sense so Sam must teach her his ways and turn her into a bombshell. They take it on as a sort of experiment and it is hilarious. Can you see where this little experiment could go very wrong for the two? Well, I don’t want to go into detail but it was definitely interesting.I am telling you now though that this isn’t for the easily offended. It says right in the summary that it “contains language , drinking, euphemisms, and lots of “bow chicka wow wow” so expect just that. I wouldn’t say it was too much but it all depends on who you are. It is still very much tame enough to be considered YA but not intended for a younger YA audience. Ally and Sam were equally funny and at times clueless. Their friendship and the way they interacted with each other was the best part of this book. Their friends were also a good addition. I really liked Rachel (Ally’s cousin), Ian, and the group of people always at the diner they went to. Like I said it was mostly very funny but of course there was romance and awww moments. This isn’t a book that gets really deep but it does mention some things that give a hint to deeper issues. Did I mention there is an adorable kitten? Well, there is.I am glad I got the chance to read this and I am looking forward to reading more of Tellulah’s work.
