Book Description

Amazon Reviews:
"This book had me laughing from the first page to the last."

"I just loved this book, could not put it down, still reading at four in the morning, laughing out loud.”

“This book is a must funny & not at all predictable you can really identify with the characters in this book & their quirks!”

"Without a doubt, this is one of the funniest- no, hell no, this is THE funniest book I've ever read." Blogger review.

"Made me LOL from the beginning right through till the very end. A happy feelgood book that I would highly recommend."

"I loved the story and all the characters. I was engaged from start to finish. Lots of fun plot lines and lots of laughs."

“Not one to usually read popular novels, this rocked.”

“Just the opening line had me in stitches and intrigued as to how the rest of the book was going to span out.”

“This book really is a laugh a minute book, very cleverly written and a definite page turner. A must read for anyone!”

Barry Shaw’s whirlwind journey through life was shaped by the growing demands of a multitude of disorders, which meant he tended to clean things repeatedly and aggressively, before they had the chance to murder him!

Barry thrived on routine. If it hadn’t happened before, it was unlikely to happen ever…until he collided into her that is. On that fateful day, as he walked to work, stepping from the centre of one pavement stone to the next, he crashed into Sandra Wiggins, who had also been discreetly avoiding the dreaded cracks. It was lust at first would have to wait. Apart, they were just weird, but together, they were pure mental!

This is the bittersweet, hilarious story of two human lovebirds destined to spend their calamitous lives together…until something extraordinary occurs that threatens to decimate what remains of their limited sanity. Welcome to the New World Order created when Barry met his Miss. Match!

"It's a fine line between love and hate. Hate and she wrings your neck. Love and you ring her finger!"
"The groom recommended his naked bride should leave her garter on in case she might get cold during the night."
"If he wanted to date someone from a mental asylum, she would be top of his list."
"Joanne flirted with men even in her sleep and was unaware of her libidinous behaviour most of the time."
"Barry's stubble had sprouted overnight, like ugly perennial weeds violating a well manicured lawn."

5.0 out of 5 stars An entertaining read from start to finish August 14, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I loved this book, a tale two characters both plagued with a multitude of phobias, idiosyncrasies and eccentricities. The hero Barry and the object of his affection, Sandra both collide on a fateful day whilst they are trying to avoid stepping on the cracks in the pavements. It is little quirks like this that lots of people, myself included, do, that makes this book really believable. The book is fast paced, fun and the author cleverly conveys the depth of lust and love that this oddball couple have for each other. Despite their obsessive personalities both Barry and Sandra are really likeable and I couldn't put the book down wanting to know what would happen next and hoping everything would work out for them. The author has a great talent for writing about human nature in a humorous way and the message that came across is such a lovely and positive one - that for every person, however strange they may be, there is the perfect match for them they just need to take a leap of faith.
I would highly recommend this book and will be watching out for more books from Derick Hudson in the future.

"Dysfunctional Romance" is exactly that and so much more. This book had me laughing from the first page to the last, causing me to wonder if anyone is truly "normal" or if everyone suffers from a touch of dysfunctional something in some way or another. Some people are simply wackier than others, and Barry and Sandra lead the dysfunctional parade, followed by every wacky character in this book. I'm hoping for a sequel to learn how this lovely looney couple survives family life, and to see what becomes of the children. I recommend this book to anyone who needs to laugh at the antics of others attempting to survive this crazy world we share. If you don't mind some steamy dysfunctional sex scenes and a fare amount of profanity, this book is for you. Be prepared to laugh out loud even when you're alone reading the book in pubic. Go on, get the book. You're going to love it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dysfunction at it's best!! May 31, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
From the moment I read the blurb on this one, I knew I had to snag a copy. I wasn't disappointed. Derick Hudson keeps you engaged and interested the whole way through. Barry and Sandra are both so lovably quirky and odd, you can't help but cheer them on. A bit over the top at times, but an enjoyable ride overall. The entire cast of characters shines in this novel, everyone of them guaranteed to keep you smiling, cheering, and sometimes, laughing out loud. Curl up on the sofa with a nice cup of tea, or lounge on the beach with a frosty beverage; it doesn't matter where you read this one. Just read it. You'll be so glad you did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliantly funny. October 25, 2013
By Carolyn
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the funniest, heartwarming story I've ever read. I have fast come to the conclusion that Derick Hudson is not simply a great writer but a great story teller. By that, I mean he weaves such wonderfully real characters into a superbly written plot. Good character formation is where many authors come unstuck. Not Derick Hudson. The man is a genius! To date, I've read Asphyxia, Unholy Romance and now Dysfunctional Romance. His latest, Infallible, is sitting on my table having been delivered today. I can't rate these books, or their author, highly enough. Brilliant reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not Just Another RomCom January 21, 2012
I genuinely expected this to be 'just another romcom' but even within the first two chapters I was proven wrong! I'd read it a second time, not something I'd often do... First book I've ever literally laughed out loud at, which left me coming across quite crazy to my other half. Little pieces of Barry and Sandra's 'minor' oddities can be found in all of us and I for one am glad I bought this book and hope many more will do the same and enjoy the book just as I have :)

Imperfect and wonderful and this author has managed to present them in just the right light!!! Thank you for a great read and I highly recommend this little story to anyone who has a sense of humor and an appreciation for life's little "jokes"!

Hi all!

I'm a deeply passionate and energetic individual and want to rock your world, literally. I also want to make you laugh out loud so much that you get tinnitus...or scare the bejesus out of you so much that you become incontinent!

Hope you enjoy my hilarious romcoms, Dysfunctional Romance and Dysfunctional Romance 'The break-up!', my slightly more scandalous but equally hilarious 'spiritual' romcom/parody, Unholy Romance, my VERY scary and controversial thrillers, Asphyxia and Infallible, and my 'young adult' paranormal vampire extravaganza, Fiend Street!
