A quick perusal of the book description may lead you to believe this book is contemporary romance or chick lit. That's part of the story, but not all. There may be something for a man here too. Julie Burns is under pressure from her mother, friends, and the constant clicking of the clock. She decides if she's ever going to marry and have a family it must happen soon. It's a numbers game anyway. Just meet and date enough men and surely she'll uncover Mr. Right. Everyone will enjoy the humor of "Romantically Challenged." As a bonus men can learn two valuable lessons. First, look at the reasons Julie eliminates each man. If you never see yourself in any of the rejects you aren't looking hard enough. Second, Julie will confirm what you've always suspected. "I'll never understand women."

I enjoyed reading this book because so much of it was "oh so true!" In some of the scenarios, I could relate. It was like Chelsea Handler's "My Horizontal Life" as far as comedic, but not raunchy. Every chapter kept you wanting to get to her next adventure, yet, it became obvious early on how it would turn out. Still, well worth the read!

It was good. The ending was way to abrupt though and it left you wondering what the hell happened next. It was a good fluff book.

I love love LOVED this book. It was hilarious and very entertaining. I would definitely recommend it to anyone as a good read. It needs to be made into like a movie or one of those "made-for-TV" movies or something.

This is a great book for an easy read to just escape into with a glass of wine. Funny and relatable. I love Jane Green and Jennifer Weiner books and I am definately adding this author to my favorites!

If youre looking for a no-thinking read, this is it. The lack of vocabulary and predictability make the pages fly by. I only kept reading because I live on the west side of LA, and I recognized all the places. Some parts were enjoyable, but its cetainly not a must have.

This book was a pleasant surprise. I far exceeded my expectations. It read like a sophie Kinsella book...a contemporary view on dating in the 21st century w/ bits of humor interjected throughout. I loved it!!

In Los Angeles entertainment lawyer Julie Burns feels good about her life overall with her success as an attorney and her close friends. However, Julie¿s current boyfriend is Tickle Me Elmo, as she has not dated since being dumped though her loving mom and her caring buddies want her to find someone. Julie figures if she serial dates enough men, the probability is that she will meet ¿The One¿ though her rule about not dating those in the business dramatically reduces the available population She considers Joe the bartender and Steve the lawyer, but rejects the wannabe actor. Julie tries matchmaking Just A Date, but none of her perspective mates seem right as either the date is from hell, the man is from hell, or the chemistry is in limbo. On the verge of accepting that she is ROMANTICALLY CHALLENGED, Julie is ready to give up the fight as there cannot be a single male for her left in Southern California, but cheerleading friends led by her mom will not let her give up. --- This amusing satirical chick lit tale stars a likable protagonist who represents the struggles of many women skirmishing in the dating arena. The story line focuses on Julie¿s lack of dating success with the dates keeping the refreshing plot moving forward. Beth Orsoff provides an amusing contemporary tale that though filled with poignancy and angst never loses its focus of a self-deprecating female wondering where her prince, make that jester, is. --- Harriet Klausner

The book cover and its title are what drew me to this book. I started reading it at Border's and ended up checking it out at the library. It was a good book that told about a 30-something woman and her trials with dating. I couldn't put it down and was surprised when I turned the page to continue reading and it just ended. That's it? I didn't expect it to end the way it did. I hope the author will follow-up with a sequel.

Julie Burns is a thirty-one year old Jewish entertainment lawyer in Los Angeles. At yet another family wedding where she is forced to wear a hideous bridesmaids outfit she is informed that if she wants to have children before the age of 35 then she needs to find a husband in the next 12 months. Having signally failed previously she decides (egged on by her friends) that she has been too picky and that romance is a numbers game so she proceeds to go on a series of dates with men she would never normally have given the time of day to, and it goes just about as well as you could expect. Julie tries blind dates, speed dating, a dating agency, online dating, friends of friends, dating cast-offs from her friends - you name it she tries it. The trouble is, at some point I stopped laughing/ shuddering at the awful men that an attractive 30-something woman has to put up with and started to think that actually Julie wasn't a very sympathetic character. Unfortunately, that was my lasting impression and so my question became who would want to date her? I received a free copy of this book from the author (for signing up to her newsletter).
