Review: The Girl's Guide to (Man) Hunting by Jessica Clare

First just let me say that this book is HOT! Seriously. The chemistry between Dane and Miranda is electric and I found I had to fan my face quite a few times after reading one of their love scenes. I wasn't really sure if I would like this book. I'm not too big on revenge story-lines, but I found myself pleasantly surprised. I really liked this book and I definitely can't wait to read more from this author.

Miranda and Dane dated briefly when they were in high school. While at a graduation party together they played Seven Minutes in Heaven and things got pretty hot and heavy between the two. Then the next day Dane was off to play hockey in the NHL and Miranda was left to deal with the aftermath. Not only did Dane leave without a goodbye but apparently photos were taken of the two in the closet and then posted on the internet for all the world to see. Miranda has spent the last nine years with being known as the "Boobs of Bluebonnet" as well as living with the hurt and anger at being betrayed. When Dane moves back into town and starts a survival training school with two of his buddies from high school, Miranda sees this as on opportunity to finally get the revenge she has always wanted. So she enrolls in the school with plans to destroy Dane.

Dane has returned to Bluebonnet with hopes of reinventing himself and his reputation. For the past year he's been living of the grid in Alaska with some buddies from high school and now they've decided to start a survival training school. He's shocked to see his old girlfriend Miranda has enrolled in his class. Dane has always thought of Miranda as the girl that got away and has thought of her often in the past nine years.

In order for Miranda's plan of revenge to work, she needs to seduce Dane, post compromising photos of him on the internet and then leave him high and dry just like he did with her. But all of that goes awry when Miranda starts to get closer to Dane. It seems he's not the guy she thought he was and the more time they spend together the more Miranda seems to fall for him and her plan just seems to go out the window.

I really liked this book and I really enjoyed Miranda and Dane together. When I first picked up this book I thought Dane was going to be an asshole that seems to redeem himself in the end, but that was not the case at all. Dane is an all-around good guy. He has genuine feelings for Miranda and he's actually quite sweet. Also, Dane is freaking HOT! Seriously, these two were smoking together and I just couldn't stop reading about them.

I am really looking forward to the next book in this series. I find myself fascinated by Colt and Grant and I am eager to get my hands on their books.
