Bob writes comedy well – which means he observes the world with a comedic eye and transfers that vision to the reader. Opening his tale, his style shows well – ‘Someone once wrote that true love comes in quietly like the fog. The heart, they say, is timeless. While this may be true for some people, for me, finding my soulmate officially started on a specific date: January 13, 2011. The morning was a balmy one in sunny Southern California. I was driving my new, black, Honda sedan that still boasted a brand-new-car scent. The dry, warm climate made it seem like summer and the perfect weather to preview the latest real estate offerings in the Valencia area. Most real estate offices across the United States designate one day for all agents to view new property listings. In our area, that day happens to be on Fridays. “Where are we headed to next?” I asked Joel. Joel Watkins, a fellow realtor, rode shotgun but pretended not to hear me. “Jesus, isn’t this pathetic?” He pointed to his right. “Look at these homes! They’re all the same! It’s like they were cut out from greeting cards. Now, don’t get me wrong, giving somebody a greeting card has got to be the most festive way I know to deposit five bucks into their trashcan. But seriously, this is downright depressing!” I was following a caravan of five other vehicles so I had to keep my eyes on the road, but I knew what he was talking about. Our master-planned city consisted of thousands of tract homes with wide avenues governed by homeowner associations. Most of the homes were painted in either white- or earth-tones. Some bore red tile roofs with a tree planted in a tiny manicured front yard. It gave a well-kept appearance that most people appreciated. Excluding Joel and others like him.’
Insight into the real estate clime? Naturally, and so progresses his story - ‘Bob, a Los Angeles real estate agent is at the point in his life where he just wants to meet The One. But he hasn’t had much luck thus far. He finds himself mulling over what exactly he might be doing wrong, what he may do to turn his luck around, and lastly, how in the world will he know when he finally meets that one special girl. A chance encounter with a psychic fuels his desire, so much more, leaving him ever so determined to meet his soulmate. This event sets him off on a journey filled with hope, disappointment and a ton of hilarious moments. Will Bob ever get it right and meet The One?’
Bouncy, frothy, naughty, and fun. If there is a male version of Chick Lit, Bob Boog defines it. An entertaining light read! Grady Harp, November 17
For me, it wasn’t my favorite romantic comedy. For example, the plotline involving the main male character taking naked pictures of his girlfriend without her knowledge or permission and then getting them printed where others could see them as they were developed made me cringe. Whereas some people may find this funny, I didn’t. I found it tacky. Additionally, lines like, “This little card led to my verbal apology, followed by a kiss, then making out, and then wild, passionate, make-up sex” don’t exactly make me swoon. I wish I would have liked it more. I just don’t think it was the right fit for me.
On the plus side, it is short and easy to read.
The reader is introduced to the lead character Bob, he's a Los Angeles based real estate agent. However at 27, single and tired of one night stands he has reached the point in his life where he wants to find the one. He has created four rules for dating that include time, employment status, the distance between them and hair colour. After previously being burnt by blondes he refuses to go anywhere near them. While out driving around with his friend Joel to various real estate open houses the pair find themselves coming across a psychic reading. The psychic explains to Bob that he's going to meet someone quite marvellous and it's to be sooner rather than later.
This really is a fun read, go on try it you'll love it too.
