Our Review

‘Well, surprise, I wasn’t always the pristine, well-mannered, fuck-sation you see today. I was one of them: a beer-guzzling, video-game-playing, disinterested asshole who took my relationship for granted.’

The Modern Gentleman by Meghan Quinn was such a light-hearted and entertaining read! We were chuckling away at Wes’ antics and swooning over his wooing. Honestly, we fell in love with Wes from the get go, a man with the best of intentions yet pulling these stunts that were straight out of a comedy sketch. Meghan Quinn has such a fabulous sense of humour which just tickles us and this time it was combined with a sweet slow burn romance, so what’s not to love?

Cockdaddy69: Hi

“Hi? That’s all you’re going to say? That’s entirely too lame. Someone with the username Cockdaddy69 would not just say hi.”

Wes was such a funny character, he made us laugh and cringe in equal measure. Meghan Quinn writes these brilliant male characters that are so cheeky, sweet and funny whilst retaining everything that makes them so delish and passionate. It’s quite the feat, and we love that this insecurity and vulnerability can be what is so attractive and appealing. Wes writes a super popular advice column under the name of The Modern Gentleman. The emails he receives are hilarious and his responses classic! He’s the slob turned suave lady-killer and gives advice on how to woo that special lady. When his boss asks for a real life experiment which imparts valuable advice to his readership, Wes embark on a wooing journey that turns into a real case of ‘love at first dog poop’. Along with some advice from his hilarious two best mates, Roman and Caden, he attempts to charm the knickers off the elusive and slightly eccentric, June Lacy.

‘Dear Modern Gentleman,

I made a move. My girl was giving me all the right signals, so after dinner, standing outside her apartment, I kissed her. The only problem…she was going in for a hug so I ended up kissing her ear…with a little bit of tongue. I wet-willied her with my tongue. I didn’t know what to say, so I bolted. It’s been two days and I haven’t talked to her. I really like her but I don’t know how to move on from something so embarrassing. Any advice?

The Wet Willy Man

This romantic comedy was the perfect lazy afternoon read. It reminded us a bit of a reversed version of How to Lose a Guy in 10 days, with the vast majority of the story in Wes’ pov. There were a few cheeky chapters in June’s voice which were strategically placed. To be fair, we found it a tad challenging to connect with her as we only saw her from an outside perspective and there wasn’t enough about her to really emotionally connect to. So those titbits sure did help! As far as romantic comedies go, we really enjoyed it, laughing out loud at the antics of the woeful threesome; Wes, Caden and Roman – their banter was class! The romance was super sweet and we felt everything Wes was feeling, the good, the bad and the sometimes downright hilarious cringe fest!

‘This girl was made to make me smile. She was brought into my life to challenge me.’

Synopsis

Have you ever hit rock bottom?

I embarrassingly have.

It’s why I’m wearing my girl’s decorative scarf over my head, clutching her lady drink to my chest, and singing ever so softly to Joni Mitchell while swaying back and forth.

This is what therapists refer to as LOSING IT.

Oldest story in the book: boy meets girl, boy falls for girl, boy screws up MASSIVELY, girl tells boy to suffocate in the fruits of his very own unborn children.

Heard it before? I’m sure you have.

So what’s so different about this story? Well, it’s about me, The Modern Gentleman, New York City’s top advice columnist, and my rather ungraceful downfall from my pristinely polished pedestal.

It’s about a girl I met who threw all my proven theories to the wind and left me awkward, needy, and absolutely head-over-wingtipped shoes in love.

This is a story about June Lacy and how she single-handedly dismantled The Modern Gentleman.
