Stylist Gemma Jones is competing for a once-in-a-lifetime promotion. All she has to do is take some fashion-backward guy from geek to GQ-worthy. The only problem? The man in question is her hairy manwhore of a next-door neighbor. AKA Bigfoot.

Zach Morrison has zero interest in being Gemma’s makeover mannequin. Sure, it’s fun getting his smart-mouthed neighbor all riled up, but after cashing out of his tech start-up and going through an ugly break-up, he’s taking a permanent vacation. If he wants to wear sweatpants and sleep on a mattress in the corner of an empty apartment—

OK. Maybe he needs a little push in the right direction. But as Gemma races the clock to win her bet, she finds that Bigfoot’s been hiding a few things under his baggy flannel shirts. Like abs of steel, and a surprisingly big...

Heart. He has a big heart.

Soon, sparks are flying between this unlikely couple, but can Zach embrace a fresh start - however manscaped it might be? And will Gemma beat out her fashionista rival for the top spot - and keep the truth about their bet from Zach?

I’ve heard so much about how what a great author Lila Monroe is and I was excited to read How to Choose a Guy in 10 Days.  I can definitely see what all the hype is about.  The author creates fun characters with entertaining and humorous scenes. This is a light-hearted, quick read that is a first in a series and has a HEA with no cheating and no cliffhanger.

Gemma is a fashionista who wants to help people feel confident and is up for a promotion.  However, another coworker is in the running for the same position.  She ends up agreeing to try to makeover her hairy neighbor AKA Bigfoot as a part of a bet.  However, her neighbor cannot know that it is a competition.  
Gemma and Zach do not start off on the right terms.  He is rude and antagonist towards her.  Gemma is a kindhearted soul that you cannot help, but love.  Zach. . . well he is quite yummy with hidden depths.  I loved both characters and watching their relationship evolve.  The book is predictable, which I pretty much figured going into, but I enjoyed reading it.

This book also has awesome secondary characters - especially Martin, Jules, Zoey, and Eve.  I am looking forward to the You’ve Got Male, book 2 in this series - Zoey’s book.

To sum it up, this is a cute romcom with fun characters - main and secondary.  The book is predictable, but very enjoyable with lots of humorous moments.  It moves at a good pace and is a great first book in a new series.

I received this book as an ARC and I voluntarily leave this review.  All thoughts and opinions are my own
