"You have chlamydia." 
Three words no man wants to hear.
I've always been liberal with my appreciation of the female form, a firm believer in the 'try before you buy' principle, but living life to the fullest obviously didn't end well for me considering the unexpected—and very unwelcome—consequence of my free and easy past. 
After living through the horrendous experience that was informing my recent sexual partners of my acquired 'condition,’ I made a vow to myself – and a bet with my best friend—that the next woman I sleep with will be the ‘one.’
What I will learn is that even when something happens and the games come to an end, there's always the chance of something—or someone—crashing in and changing everything. 
So this is my story. It may start with a venereal disease, but I promise you, I’m determined to get my happy ending.
 


“I’ve narrowed it down to five reasons why a woman would throw a drink at a man.” He leans back and crosses his perfectly toned arms over his chest. “Impart your wisdom, oh wise bartender.” He takes another drink of his beer and—yet again—watching me like a hawk. I wish he’d stop watching me. My confidence wavers under his intense stare but when I catch a knowing glint in his eye, it riles me up. There’s nothing worse than a guy who hides his unease behind a cocky façade, especially when I know there’s something genuine hiding there. It’s one of the worst qualities a guy can have. It’s disingenuous and fake and if there’s two things I hate—in anyone—it’s that. I square my shoulders and stand up straight, deciding to let him have it, putting my hands out in front of me to count on my fingers. “One, you cheated on her.” He shakes his head, an amused smile playing on his lips. “Nope. Next.” “Two, connected to the first, you hooked up with her sister, best friend or mother . . .” He snorts at that one, chuckling under his breath as he shakes his head again. “Right, then, the last three,” I continue. “Three through five are offending her family/job/friends or outfit, asking her to pay for your date and lastly, giving her an STD.” His eyes grow wide and he sits bolt upright. Bingo.

My Review:

I only got to read this fourth, and final book, but it works as a standalone.  However you do get to know all the people who are the couples from the previous books, so I am eager to go back and read those as well.  The characters themselves were probably my favorite part of the story.  Before I was even halfway through I found myself thinking about how much I wished I had a group of friends like these.  I loved the reference to being a "V-Card holder" even when things were the way they were and she actually was obviously not a virgin.  This was a very sweet story, there were definitely obstacles to overcome, read the synopsis above with the whole STD line of the story.  But to me, someone who has gone most of their life with drama and obstacles being easily solved, or at least solved in calm, well thought out ways, I enjoyed reading a book where the drama was more like my real life.   I am fortunate enough to have a free copy of the first book that I got from a free download off of Amazon at one point, so I can't wait to go back and get to know all of these different characters more and how they became couples.
