Rule number one: don't fall for the wrong guy. 

Gracie Green has a shopping list for men. Career, financials, family...and a long list of rules to determine a guy's suitability. She's already disappointed her socialite mother once—now Gracie needs to find Mr. Perfect. Too bad she keeps getting distracted by her super-sexy, six-feet-of-tattooed-hotness friend, Des, who is so many shades of Mr. Wrong… 

Bar owner Des Chapman has vowed never again to get involved with society girls. Yet he's irresistibly drawn to Gracie—those lush curves, those lips, and her ridiculous ability to date the wrong guys. As Gracie's discouragement grows, Des realizes it's time to show her what she really needs in a man—and it has nothing to do with a briefcase and generous bank account. He'll teach Gracie the Rules According To Des…even if it means breaking his rule in the process.

My Thoughts:

Such a lovely story about a girl who keeps looking for a certain kind of man, only to discover that maybe her list of qualifications may be the wrong one to go by. This is a cute take on the "girl with a list" love story.

Gracie keeps looking in the wrong places for the man she needs. Her friend, the very-opposite-of-her-list Des, usually doesn't want to be with a girl like Gracie. But the attraction is evident for both of them, culminating in a moment of seeing how it would be stepping to the other side. Despite their determination to keep looking for the opposite, thinking that they're wrong for each other, they are still drawn together. The only question is, can they overcome their expectations in life for something that they may want even more?

The Rules According to Gracie is an adorable and sensual read. I loved every minute of their friendship-to-something-a-little-bit more. I kept cheering Gracie and Des on, hoping they'll go into the right direction in their lives instead of expectations. Stefanie London is an author to check out, for sure!

My Rating:


  1. Sounds cute. And, once again, what a fun cover.

  2. I know so many girls who have lists. I wonder if men have the same types of lists as well?

    1. That's actually brilliant! It makes me want to explore that idea in a book. :)
