Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“First-time author Scholfield emboldens women to make the first move on their 'hot guy' prospects and provides conversational and pragmatic road maps [with] enjoyable, practical, light fare. It is refreshing to visit successes and failures with someone who admits she was not a 'genetic lottery' winner.”
Library Journal

"Finally! Screw Cupid recognizes how valuable it can be for women to make the first move, and teaches them how to do it."
Dorian Solot, author of I Love Female Orgasm: An Extraordinary Orgasm Guide

Screw Cupid chucks the old rules that advise women to wait for men to ask them out. Scholfield is the big sister you’ve always wished you had. She’s honest, encouraging, and gutsy enough to fall on her face (and tell you all about it). Scholfield takes us on a hilarious journey through her own pickup flops and successes, and she’s so endearing and likeable, even those not on the prowl are bound to enjoy the ride.”
Victoria Vantoch, PhD, gender historian

“Witty, self-aware, and filled with practical tips to meeting guys, Screw Cupid is a revelation for anyone still playing by ‘the rules.’ Armed with dozens of real-life examples, Samantha Scholfield illustrates how you can create opportunity with men while still keeping your ego and humor intact. It’s almost as if she’s done all of the embarrassing, trial-and-error research so you don’t have to. Women should rejoice—you’ve finally found your own answer to The Game.”
Evan Marc Katz, dating coach and author of Why You're Still Single: Things Your Friends Would Tell You If You Promised Not to Get Mad

“When it comes to dating, nothing can mess with our minds more than the cat and mouse of figuring out who's going to make the first move—but with Screw Cupid: The Sassy Girl's Guide to Picking Up Hot Guys by Samantha Scholfield, you now have some guidance going forth… Aside from giving women a pep talk towards the possibility of snagging the man of their dreams with a little bit of bravado and elbow grease, Screw Cupid is great because it offers practical tips on places (other than a bar) to find a suitable mate, discusses ways to use this strategy when online dating, and even offers some potential dialogue to educate the reader on what a successful conversation might look like.”
Nancy Redd, author of Body Drama and AOL Health Insider and Wellness Coach

“In her book, Screw Cupid: The Sassy Girl's Guide to Picking up Hot Guys, Samantha Scholfield bravely shares her dating experience—the highs and lows and, more importantly, the insight garnered over many years of dating rejection and redemption—all to improve the love lives of the female population. In this brilliantly crafted, humorous, but hard-hitting book, she distills techniques and strategies developed via extensive trial and error, refining the best of the extensive pickup advice that's already in circulation... With humor and depth, Samantha Scholfield turns her dating lemons into lemonade for our benefit.”

Library Journal
There's no shortage of dating manuals that put sassy before substance, and neither of these books is an exception. First-time author Scholfield emboldens women to make the first move on their "hot guy" prospects and provides conversational and pragmatic road maps. Manara shoots from the hip, offering such rotgut advice for men as "Does she go to Las Vegas just to shop with her girlfriends? If yes, run." At times, Scholfield tries too hard to be hip and irreverent, but it is refreshing to visit successes and failures with someone who admits she was not a "genetic lottery" winner. She produces enjoyable, practical, light fare. The same cannot be said for Manara, who has produced a collection of mostly misogynistic clichés printed in large type.

    Funny and very useful

    I read this book and laughed out loud. Ms. Scholfield's experiences dating are so funny and so remind me of my first years dating. However, I am a lot older now and find that her advice is right to the point and very useful for the baby boomer woman looking to get back into dating. You have to meet a lot of men before you find the right one and her advice is easy to understand and try out for yourself. I loved it !
