Editorial Reviews

Review

"Hilarious. A much needed uplifting romp in the very boring world of self-help dating books. A fun read!" Angelique Frenchy Morgan, Reality TV Star and Author

"Once in a while a book bursts into the marketplace and changes how you view yourself and your relationships with the people who mean most to you. This isn't that book, but I did laugh a lot." Justin Guarini, Actor, Singer, Nerd, Hair Icon


"Educational, uplifting and a whole lot of belly laughs!" Rosanna Leo, author of the Gemini Island Shifter series


"Rodney's twisted humor about courtship and relationships can't hide the fact that he actually provides roundabout 'decent' advice." -  Julie Zantopolous, VP & Senior Editor at The Indie Chicks, Inc.


"Very funny. Romantic as Hell saved my marriage!" Amy Vansant, author of Angeli & Pineapple Lies

About the Author

Rodney Lacroix lives in southern New Hampshire. He is the proud biological father of two amazing children and step-ological father of two stepamazing stepchildren.
He also likes to invent terms. 
Rodney is a black-belt in Kenpo Karate, has won multiple tournament awards, and was given the title of Sensei at his dojo in 2014. Rodney is terrified of spiders because they're scary and are not impressed at all that he knows karate. He also likes to put random facts about himself in the "About the Author" sections of his books.
Rodney's previous two books, Things Go Wrong for Me and Perhaps I've Said Too Much have won him multiple humor awards and have appeared on international best-seller lists. He's hoping this book gets him the trifecta, and by the time you read this, he hopes it's allowed him to retire to a life of luxury where he can afford Dragon, Naturally Speaking so he doesn't have to type any more. Typing tires him out. 
Also, Rodney is lazy.

Here's my best advice:

Men, pretend to buy this for yourselves but buy it mostly to impress chicks because they will read it and think you bought it for yourself to do all the awesomely romantic things Rodney writes about, and they will go nuts. You'll get the benefit from just having bought it. You don't even have to read it because, obviously, it's not the Sports Illustrated Swim Suit Edition. I understand. The women will love reading it.

Women, pretend to buy this for your men, because then you get to buy a hilarious book for yourself, thus spending money on yourself while pretending to spend it on him. And, as an added bonus, if you ever find yourself losing a fight, you can throw it at him and say "Well, I bought you this book and YOU NEVER EVEN READ IT." This book will do a lot for you.

If Rodney told you you would fall in love with him and possibly touch yourself while reading Chapter 4, don't believe him. He's just trying to sell books. Me? I get nothing. You can believe me. This book is FUNNY.

(Rodney can't see this, can he? I don't want this stuff going to his head...)

I had ordered signed copies of this author's previous two books Perhaps I've Said Too Much (a Great Big Book of Messing with People) and Things Go Wrong For Me (when life hands you lemons, add vodka) to give to my hubby for Christmas year-before-last - not only were *those* books hilarious and guffaw-inspiring, but his personal note when he signed the books made me a fan for life. Everybody needs laughter in their life, and Rodney delivers! When he cast a net to see who he could snag to preview an advanced copy of this book, I was beyond happy to have been bestowed the honor.

I downloaded it to my Fire phone, and since we have a burn ban going on due to our unusual drought, not being able to have a campfire and s'mores on our camping trip, at least I had RAH to keep me entertained next to our barren fire pit. My friends and family thought I'd lost my mind, sitting there next to the cold pit laughing like a crazy person.

You can bet I've already pre-ordered a paperback copy to give to my husband for one of his Christmas presents this year, because he has the same kind of 'out there' humor that Rodney does - and you never know, maybe he'll end up being inspired by some of the romantic tips that really are legit - and funny. Well done, Rodney!

I had a chance to read an early copy of this. I shouldn't have started it at work, I laughed-snorted so hard in the first chapter my coworkers came to see what I was doing and found out I wasn't working. Very funny, and honest (maybe a little too much in spots, and when you get to the chapter about Vegas you'll know what I mean), and definitely worth a read. Good job, Rodney!

I was lucky enough to get my hands on an early copy of this book, sent right from the author, cause we're cool like that. Anyway, I'd have NO qualms telling Rodney that this book was misleading nonsense, but it isn't. Sure there's a humor twist, but for all of that it really does provide relationship tips that are ACTUALLY easy to follow. Not 1,405 things to do to keep him/her happy. Just some simple things you can do that will actually make a difference in your relationship. I don't put my stamp of approval on just any book, but this one has mine.

I was fortunate enough to receive an ARC copy of Romantic as Hell prior to publication and I am so glad I had a chance to experience the humor and advice of author Rodney Lacroix. As a romance author, I love hearing from men about their thoughts on love and passion. Rodney brings his unique and funny point of view to this charming book of romance tips. A married dad, Rodney has a lot of advice to offer, most of it strangely useful and all of it hilarious. Even if you don't require any help in this department, just reading about the author's experiences will have you in stitches. This was my first time reading any of Mr. Lacroix's work, and I look forward to reading more. Filled with self-deprecating humor and lots of belly laughs, Romantic as Hell is a perfect read if you're looking for something different. I'm pretty sure the author has cornered the market on this sort of book, and I doubt anyone could deliver the funnies in the same way. The book reads like a diary in places, a self-help manual in others, and is enjoyable from start to finish. And although it is aimed at men who want to improve their seduction techniques and the art of lovemaking, I can't think of anyone who wouldn't enjoy this rollicking read. As the author says himself, read this book because:
"Worst Case: You laugh.
Better Case: You laugh AND get some tips that strengthen your position
in the dating community or in your own relationship.
Best Possible Case Ever: You laugh AND get some good tips AND
make your significant other's friends think you're amazing, thus
increasing the odds of a threesome."

You can't just read Rodney Lacroix's new book "Romantic As Hell." You have to experience it. Let me tell you my method.

On the day the book arrived, I knew I had to be ready, so I had gone to Bed Bath & Beyond (with my 20% off coupons) the day before. After Mike the Mailman dropped the package (har har) off on my doorstep, I got down to business.

I had a bottle of champagne chilling on the coffee table, several sweet-smelling Yankee™ candles burning on the mantle, and a Sade CD queued up on the stereo. The lights were turned way down low, and as Sade serenaded me with "Smooth Operator," I poured myself a glass of champagne, cracked open the book, and began to read. I was soon overcome by a warm, tingling sensation that began in my stomach and radiated throughout my body which I realized after a few moments was just my IBS flaring up. When I returned from the bathroom, I got down to business (har har) and plowed through (har har) Rodney's (har har) book (har).

I've been a fan of Rodney's writing for years, and "Romantic as Hell" didn't disappoint. What is often lost in discussions about Rod is that he's not only a funny guy, but he's also a good guy (and a short guy). It's clear that he cares deeply about his beautiful wife and his wonderful family, and, frankly, you'd be missing a pretty damn good opportunity if you didn't take advice from someone who meets the world the way he does. I can recommend this book wholeheartedly to anyone—single, married, looking, meerkat—and know you'll love it.

Just make sure you stock up on Sade. And toilet paper.
