4.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious and sweet romance April 19, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having trouble finding Mr. Right? You need the Boyfriend Bylaws!

This was a sweet and humorous story about a young lady trying to find Mr Right! I really got a kick out of Melanie's bad dating habits. This story reminded me of that movie "How to Lose A Guy in 10 Days" where the main character does everything wrong in a relationship. This was how this short story went! Some parts of the book had me laughing out loud!

I thought the characters were well thought out and very loveable! I loved Melanie and her friendship with her roommate right from the start and her friend from the gym Matt was so sweet! I thought it was a bit too sexual at times with the way Melanie planned her lingerie and her talk of sex but then again some of that was just too funny not to laugh! I feel like this story could have went a lot longer because there was so much goodness there that it could have developed even further but for a simple enjoyable read this hit the spot! I received a copy of The Boyfriend Bylaws for free by Susan for my honest review of the book!

I like this version of The Boyfriend Bylaws by Susan Hatler much better than the first. She has revised it to include friends from the previous four books (Like Kristen and Ethan from book four) and it felt more complete.

I was rooting for Mel from the start. She really is obsessed with being in love and finding "The One". Mel's roommate and best friend has stepped in, after so many guys that are wrong for Mel. That is what friends do. They help you. Patti comes up with The Boyfriend By Laws. It is very entertaining to watch Mel try to find a loop hole to the rules. I loved watching Mel figure out and find her Mr. Right!

One of my favorite scenes is when Mel, Erica, Matt and Steve are in the janitors closet and Nick find them. I found that very funny and awkward for all involved.

I have to say I totally loved the ending! I was left with a huge smile on my face. Knowing Mel does find her happily ever after with "The One".

I look forward to the next book in this delightful series. If you enjoy a romance with a dose of humor and some sticky situations grab this book. I highly recommend it! I feel you can never go wrong with a book by Ms. Hatler!

Just fyi~ This does not contain any sex or swearing! But does contain sexual reference.
This book also stands alone nicely!

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful and Fun! February 5, 2012
By GenaR
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As much as I hate to admit this, I needed a Patti of my own when I was in my early 20's! This book was a hoot, and I loved it! Many of us grew up on fairy tales, and somehow didn't learn that it's okay to be alone; that we don't need a man to fulfill our purpose in life. That falling in love is not the be all and end all of everything. And this was our dear, sweet Melanie. She was determined to find her Mr. Right, and she was in love WITH love. And she was in love the first week of dating!
Thank goodness for best friends who are very self-secure and know what's best for you. Melanie is a treasure, a delight, and had me laughing out loud at her antics!
This book is wonderful and will pick up your spirits and give you a great feeling about yourself, your good friends, and all of those loser bozo's that weren't worth your time back in the day. At least they are probably good for a chuckle now, right ;-)
Thank you, Susan, for the best laugh I've had in a long time! Kudos!

4.0 out of 5 stars Engaging, Fun read! April 14, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The characters were fun and the dialogue between the characters felt natural and easy. The story moved along quickly and ended all too soon in my opinion. I would sure like to see a longer version of this. I think the employees being caught in the janitorial closet was very funny and I loved the word of the day idea. So much fun. Loved the happily ever after ending.

My conservative reader side needs to mention (especially to all my squeeky clean reader friends) that while there was no explicit sex scenes, there was talk of having been there and going there. Buying lingerie, having the wrong kind of underwear on for pre-sex play... Characters in the book have implied sex, not detailed.

Susan Hatler has a fun way of writing that I really enjoyed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet October 6, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I wasn't sure about this at first because I'm not really into chic-lit. However, I was drawn into Melanie's wish to find Mr. Right and I soon began rooting for her. Of course I could see right away who it should be, but it was fun wondering when Mel would finally figure it out. Charming little story and I think it perfectly fits within the chic-lit genre.

3.0 out of 5 stars An Okay Story March 24, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Melanie Porter is 28-years-old, her parents are divorced, and she is a fitness trainer at Totally Fit. In the beginning of the book, we see how she's all giddy about her most current fling, Brad. When she professes her love to Brad, he bolts. Her friends accuse her of being in love with being in love; it makes sense to me. Anyway, her roommate, Patti, who she's been knowing since Junior High, comes up with these boyfriend bylaws that Melanie MUST follow; if she doesn't, she might as well kiss her car goodbye. This book was okay, but there were just some elements that didn't sit well with me; for example, I understand trying to help a friend, but at times it just seemed like Patti was being a tad bit overbearing. It was a cute story, but it was short...I was expecting more.
