Ben reassesses her needs as she realizes she was cradle snatching

Although the advice and dating policies are not what I'd take to heart, this remains a light, humorous break from the real world. Ben reassesses her needs as she realizes she was cradle snatching. HOW TO MEET CUTE BOYS is a cute (in spite of profanities), humorous chick lit tale starring a precocious lead protagonist. The tale contains Ben's amusing advice column intermingled throughout the story line. That technique leads to plenty of laughter, but also disrupts the prime plot.

Giggling from start to finish, "Cute Boys" was a breeze and the perfect weekend read for chilling by the pool. The ending isn't picture perfect (as this genre of book tends to be), I found it to be refreshingly true to life. Casey Kasem, Kato, musical references, 1980's culture). This isnt a heavy literary novel, its something that is light, humorous and a fun book in between heavier reads. I recommend this book if you want to laugh!

As for Mr. Right, well, Ben worked in a bar once and she knows a fake ID when she sees one. Alaska doesn’t do laminated licenses, and how old is Max anyway? Twennnnttty? Come on, do the math.

  • Years ago, I borrowed this book from the library while in grad school. Easy read with real characters. Having gone through a break up myself with a younger guy, I acutely felt the inner turmoil of the main character. So much so, I bought the book. It touched me and I still refer/ quote this book to my friends (older gals still in the dating game). ‘The easy affection of a boy will be nothing compared to the love of a man’ this quote pulled me through a lot of lonely single nights.

  • Deanna Kizis, West Coast Editor at Elle magazine, delivers a cute and entertaining debut addition to the chic-lit genre. Although the advice and dating policies are not what I'd take to heart, this remains a light, humorous break from the real world.
    27-year-old Benjamina Franklin (a.k.a. Ben) is a journalist at a successful woman's magazine, which gives her almost instant access to the hottest parties and social events in L.A. You'd think finding a boyfriend would be easy. Wrong. As Ben continues her neurotic search, she must deal with the jealousy she feels towards her younger sister who's now engaged, her not-so-helpful friends (one of whom is an analytical psychology student), her boss who's always looking for a new and romantic article from Ben, and Ben's mother. You'll just have to read about Ben's mother. You wouldn't believe me if I told you!
    The chic-lit genre is becoming very popular among women, probably in their 20s and 30s. This addition is light, refreshing and funny at times. What I thought was unique, were the numorous Cosmo-like quizes and dating tips added throughout the story. For me, this book provided a nice break from the heavier reading I also enjoy.

  • Benjamina Franklin (yes, that is her real name - as the story goes, her parents were on some heavy drugs when they thought of it) should be walking on air. She has a great job as a writer for a popular women's magazine, a nice apartment, supportive friends - and she gets invited to the best parties. What she doesn't have is "The One" - that perfect relationship she so eagerly craves.
    When Bejnamina meets Max, and falls hard, she starts to believe he might be "The One". But when he flashes a fake ID to get into a bar, she realizes her problems are only beginning. Max is cute, single, owns his own clothing line, and seems to genuinely like Benjamina - but he's only 20. Can a guy that young be ready for the kind of commitment Benjamina has in mind? Or is he destined to break her heart?
    HOW TO MEET CUTE BOYS is a fun, light-hearted novel about one woman's relationship struggles. The first-person writing style allows the reader in-depth insight into Benjamina's most personal thoughts and feelings, such as her constant self-doubt and insecurity. A cast of colorful secondary characters accompanies Benjamina throughout the novel. Magazine articles and quizzes, like the ones you'd find in Cosmopolitan, give the novel the feel of a guilty-pleasure. Pick it up if you're into fluffy, and often hilarious reading material. HOW TO MEET CUTE BOYS is like cotton candy for your mind!

  • At the Los Angeles based Filly magazine, twenty seven years old Benjamina Franklin works as the advice columnist on dating. Ironically, her own love life has flushed down the toilet since she finally accepted advice from her live-in lover Jack to just go, which Ben did. Embarrassingly she needs a date to escort her to her younger sister's wedding, but has no prospects.
    At a party attended by real VIPs, some PIPs (phony important people) and a horde of wannabes, Ben meets Max, owner of the Super Very Good T-shirt company. They hit if off immediately, but Ben panics when she learns that she is robbing the cradle as Max is not yet legal drinking age being only twenty-one. Encouraged by her boss at Filly, Ben hunts Max, but as she catches her prey, he escapes, suffering from commitment phobia. Ben reassesses her needs as she realizes she was cradle snatching.
    HOW TO MEET CUTE BOYS is a cute (in spite of profanities), humorous chick lit tale starring a precocious lead protagonist. The tale contains Ben's amusing advice column intermingled throughout the story line. That technique leads to plenty of laughter, but also disrupts the prime plot. Fans who enjoy asides (the columns) will find Deanna Kizis' novel extra fun although the ending seems out of character for Ben.
