Just Released + Official Review! That Guy by Belle Brooks

Title: That Guy
Author: Belle Brooks
Genre: Romantic Comedy

Release Date: August 8, 2018


A modern way of finding love. One deserted island of luxury. Two people. Three out cards. And a whole lot of possibilities.
Melinda takes the advice of her best friend, Chris. She signs up to a new dating service that pairs you statistically to the one you’re supposed to love. Finding it — love that is — using the more conventional methods, has not been a successful venture for Mindy, and with her biological clock ticking, she uses a more desperate method and takes the plunge into a possible happily ever after.
The thing is, when she boards the boat to a secret location, she doesn’t realise the man waiting for her is someone she’s previously met.
Chance encounters occur more frequently than we realise. Being blind to them is part of a bustling world. But, being faced with them can lead to a hilarious three weeks between two opposites who might just attract.

I believe that Belle Brooks can write any genre. I read her Game of Life series and could not wait till the next one came out. That one scared me to death at times. Now with reading this book I am smitten with wanting to read every book she has put out. I can not say enough nice things about this book. You really need to give it a try. This book will make you laugh. Just an example if I laugh loud I am known to snort. Well I snorted lots of times while reading.

Mindy was a sweet girl. She went through hell when she was in high school. She has lots of insecurities and you feel like you are her going through it. sI love the character thoroughly. I actually saw me in her. Arlie was a great character as well. I would feel honored to have him as my boyfriend. He also had lots of insecurities as well.

I fell in love with Belinda and Chris too. This book was so hilarious I can not stress how much I loved this book. My husband just laughed at me for reading this book because it was so funny. I would have to keep telling him what I was reading.

The just of the story Chris is Mindy’s best friend. He signs her up for a dating show called the perfect catch. The crazy things that happen on the island will make you cry from laughing so much.

I do not want to ruin this read for anyone so I will not tell important things to you. Just give it a try because Belle Brooks does not write anything bad! Thanks again Belle Brooks for such a great read.


“OMG this book was bloody hilarious; I laughed till I had to cross my legs and run to the loo (you’ll get this if you have kids like me)My other half thought I was losing the plot and kept giving me concerned glances with the strange noises that were coming from my corner of the lounge.” – Beckie Bookworm


“This book is every bit as entertaining as every other review is going to tell you, and I highly recommend this as a must read! You just have to, you won’t be sorry. 5 wet myself laughing Stars.” – Marnie


“‘THAT GUY’ gets a phenomenal 5* from me. I really cannot recommend this highly enough. I do know that if you are a fan of RomComs or Ms. Brooks .. this book needs to be read for the full effect.” – Trish Brown
