The Modern Gentleman by Meghan Quinn


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.



***3.5 Stars***


I think I'm a little broken. Don't get me wrong, I did enjoy this book and would recommend it to everyone to read but it isn't my new MQ favorite. I am so used to busting out laughing nonstop with Meghan's books. She always makes me cry with laughter at the antics her character do or say. While this book has some laugh out loud moments, it didn't blow me away. Again, I think I'm broken.


Wes and Junes relationship is very slow building. Wes will do anything to get her and once he has her, he won't let her go. June makes Wes pull out all the stops and makes him work extra hard to win her over. There is definitely a How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days vibe going on with the story line with the Meghan flair added to it.


This is a cute story and I liked it. I would recommend it. It just didn't blow my mind like every other MQ book. Love you MQ!
