The Dating Detox by Gemma Burgess

Spellbound by Gemma Burgess's second novel, A Girl Like Me, I dived into A Dating Detox with so enthusiasm and I wasn't disappointed. Sass is fed up of relationship failures and decides she needs to take a break from the dating scene. In doing so she focuses her energies on herself. She discovers who she can really be and that's really attractive to men. They want her. But Sass doesn't want to risk her new found awesome-ness by entering another relationship... and then there's Jake... who's yummy and comes along at the wrong time... but he's yummy. 

4/5 - This is a great read and I'm eagerly awaiting the next one from Burgess

A Girl Like You by Gemma Burgess

I bought a new phone with an android operating system and with it came this smart little app for reading books! Needless to say I'm in my element :) I love my kindle but its still so precious to me that I'm terrified of losing it when I'm out and about! 

The first book sample I read on my new phone was A Girl Like Me by Gemma Burgess. It's in 1st person ... hummm (see here if you missed my earlier post on 1st person prose) ...but I downloaded the book and continued reading.

Abigail is done with relationship disasters and takes her new roommate's, notorious playboy Roberts, advice on dating. She starts to act like a man. Its vibrant, its energetic, the characters jump off the page and really they have some real chemistry and I enjoyed their journey. What's more the happy ever after left me all warm and fuzzy. 

4/5 - I enjoyed this one enough to buy Gemma Burgess's first title The Dating Detox.
