Summary (from Goodreads)
Ben Bonner is an uptight, conservative lawyer who has everything except for love. After one heartbreak too many, his best friend Carey arranges for him to move in with a magical character named Jack. Urban legend has it that whoever lives with Jack will immediately find their soul mate and live happily ever after. However this match comes with a catch because Jack is also a middle-aged party animal. And although he finds his roommates love, Jack also ruins every other aspects of their life.

Desperate to find his special one, Ben moves in and immediately meets Anna Henderson, a smart, beautiful woman who takes Ben’s breath away. Anna, though, isn’t the type to sit around waiting for a man. She’s witty, spirited and she has a few secrets of her own. In fact, she isn’t even sure how much she likes Ben; which makes it too bad that in his frustration, Ben breaks Jack’s Cupid-like powers. With his powers gone, not only is Jack unable to get Anna to fall in love, but no one else in the world will be able to fall in love either.

So now with his life crumbling around him and the love of his life fading away, it becomes essential for Ben to get Anna’s help so that together they can; fix Jack, help the world to love again, and just maybe, live happily ever after.

My Review:
This book was really funny! I was so pleasantly surprised by that, and I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It was a short story, but it didn’t seem too short. I thought it was a really good length for the story that was being told. It reminded me of the hangover with all of the crazy antics going on. But it wasn’t too outrageous- everything came together in the end. And everything was there for a reason. I really like that in a book.

I also really enjoyed the main character, Ben. I could really relate to him, and felt so bad for him at the beginning of the book, when he was describing all the women that have left him for other guys throughout his life. But even the sad parts of the book were written very humorously. Cristian YoungMiller has a way with writing humor very successfully.

Ben’s friend Carey bugged me in this book though. She was my least favorite character. She just blurted out things about her and Ben’s past without even thinking about it or the consequences it might have. And even when the consequences presented themselves- she didn’t even seem to care. She didn’t seem very genuine. I even liked her boyfriend, Chip, more than her. I at least found him funnier. But other than Carey, I have no complaints about this book. It was a fast paced, fun read. It put me in a good mood and I read it in no time. I really enjoyed this funny and cute book!

4/5 Gavels
