Book Review: A Girl Like You by Gemma Burgess

After breaking up with her boyfriend of, well, forever, Abigail Wood must learn how to be single from scratch.
Her dating skills are abysmal, and she ricochets disaster to disaster- until Robert, one of London's most notorious Lotharios, agrees to coach her.
With his advice, she learns to navigate the bastard-infested water of the bar scene and practices the art of being bulletproof. The new Abigail is cocky, calm, composed...but what happens when she meets her match?

This is the first book that I have read in 2011 and it has certainly provided me with a good start. I immediately liked Abigail, she is a similar age to me and is relatively normal. She has been quite brace by ending a long term relationship when she realised he wasn't 'The One' and now she has to enter the scary world of dating.
Her new flatmate Robert takes it upon himself to teach Abigail some of the rules of dating. Robert is a definite ladies man and Abigail soon learns to be the one in control. That's until she is introduced to Dave, Robert's best mate. The rules go straight out of the window and Dave is firmly in control; when things start to go wrong, Robert is nowhere to be found and Abigail has no idea what to do.
A Girl Like You is a great book, it was extremely funny whilst also being very realistic. I felt as though I could identify with the characters and their experiences and this made reading it even more enjoyable.

Many Thanks to Harper Collins for sending me a review copy, A Girl Like You is published tomorrow, 6th January.
