Rule number one: don’t fall for the wrong guy.

Gracie Greene has a shopping list for men. Career, financials, family…and a long list of rules to determine a guy’s suitability. She’s already disappointed her socialite mother once—now Gracie needs to find Mr. Perfect. Too bad she keeps getting distracted by her super-sexy, six-feet-of-tattooed-hotness friend, Des, who is so many shades of Mr. Wrong…

Bar owner Des Chapman has vowed never again to get involved with society girls. Yet he’s irresistibly drawn to Gracie—those lush curves, those lips, and her ridiculous ability to date the wrong guys. As Gracie’s discouragement grows, Des realizes it’s time to show her what she really needs in a man—and it has nothing to do with a briefcase and generous bank account. He’ll teach Gracie the Rules According To Des…even if it means breaking his rule in the process.

My Thoughts:

Such a lovely story about a girl who keeps looking for a certain kind of man, only to discover that maybe her list of qualifications may be the wrong one to go by. This is a cute take on the "girl with a list" love story.

I had this book on my kindle for a while. The summary interested me but to be honest I was uninterested in reading about another tattooed covered hero. Not that there’s anything wrong with them if that’s what you like, but I don’t care for them personally so it often lessens my connection with the h ...more

Gracie is careful, cautious, and runs her entire life by a strict set of rules. She sees herself as quite conservative and traditional--though how much of that due to her mother’s controlling nature is debatable. She is not so much looking for love, as she is wanting to be in a stable relationship t ...more

The Rules According to Gracie by Stefanie London was such a fun read.

Gracie is the main character, she was hilarious. I laughed so hard at her attempts to find the right guy. She wants all the boxes ticked, but the harder she tries, the harder they fail.

About the author

USA Today Best Selling Author

Stefanie London

Growing up, Stefanie came from a family of women who loved to read. Her favourite activity was going shopping with her Nan during school holidays, where she would sit on the floor of the bookstore with her little sister and painstakingly select the books to spend her allowance on. Thus, it was no surprise Stefanie was the sort of student who would read her English books before the semester started. After sneaking several literature subjects into her 'very practical' Business degree, she got a job in Communications. When writing emails and newsletters didn't fulfil her creative urges, she turned to fiction and was finally able to write the stories that kept her mind busy at night. Now she lives in Melbourne with her very own hero and enough books to sink a ship. She frequently indulges in her passions for good coffee, French perfume, high heels and zombie movies. At night she writes sexy, contemporary romance stories and tries not to spend too much time shopping online and watching baby animal videos on YouTube.
