Sam Cruz's Infallible Guide to Getting Girls
by Tellulah Darling
Sam Cruz has been a major player for a while now. He may just be a high school senior, but he's got all the moves. He has mastered the one-night stand. No sex at his place. No cuddles after. He's the "hit 'em and quit 'em" type all the way.
If only the girls weren't always looking for something more...
When Sam's best friend, Ally, gets dumped, she begs Sam for help. She wants to be a player, too. Just a few one-night stands with no emotional attachments would really help boost her self-esteem and get over her ex. So Sam becomes Dr. F@*kenstein and teaches Ally all his best techniques.
And it works! Now Ally has guys falling at their feet for her... including Sam.
It so was not meant to be like that.
Final thoughts: It's cotton candy and it has its moments, but it's not great. The idea of promoting casual sex among high schoolers is a little disturbing and Sam's conversion from player to jealous guy is messy. It's a roller coaster for both him and Ally told in alternating viewpoints. I actually liked Sam's point of view more, but I still with there had been a little more development of his emotions.
