BLOG TOUR TIME! My Review - Nicknames: Tales from the shallow end of the Manhattan dating pool by Mary Geneva

SUMMARY
There are a million bad dates in the city that never sleeps.
Mary Geneva has been on 999,999 of them.

When she moved to Manhattan in her mid-20s, Mary imagined being single in New York City would be like something out of a Hollywood movie. And it was—a horror movie.
Nicknames is a look at some of the most hopeless, horrendous, and frequently hilarious dates you can imagine. Mary shares her true-life adventures looking for Mr. Right in the treacherous New York dating scene. You’ll meet men so bizarre, their names have been changed to protect the guilty.

Our cast of characters includes:
• Crazy Eyes, who didn’t just resemble an escapee from the local mental hospital, but proved he probably belonged there
• James Bond, the mysterious South African with the secret life
• Germ Sperm, a guy so classy, he actually named himself Germ Sperm!
• And many, many, many more.

Part memoir, part self-help book,
Nicknames will have you laughing out loud…and possibly abstaining from dating forever.


MY REVIEW
I could not put this story down!  It will suck you in, I hope that you don't have anything else to do at the time!  Forget about laundry, errands, TV, this book will be your life!  I read it in 1 day!

I was laughing so much with this book, I could only imagine some of these dates!  I was totally speechless!
One thing is for sure, I would NEVER want to be dating in Manhattan!  I couldn't take all this rejection, the drama, the lying, and the all out craziness of some of these men!  WOW!  My hat goes off to you Mary!  I would need several bottles of wine after all that mess!

With her life of travel and a full-time job, I don't know how she had time to go on so many dates!  I am beat at the end of the day and I want to do is relax, although I also have three children and a kitten...that may have something to do with it as well!

It is one adventure, to say the least, after another for Mary!  She has given each one of the them a nickname to try to save them a little face, but I think the guilty know who they are!  Word to the wise men of Manhattan, be on your best behavior (not that you shouldn't anyway, geesh) you never know who you are truly dating and you may end up in an amazing tell all dating in Manhattan story!  HAHA

I would honestly say that James Bond was my favorite stories, but there were so many it's hard to choose!  

Aside from all the dating escapades, you will also take away some great dating advice!  She has tips that you may never have thought of, and others that you will truly find to be laugh out load funny!  

DRINK SELECTION 
I am going to go in a different direction that my usual wine choice and I am going with a Dirty Martini!  Ya know what it just seems to fit the occasion!  
MY RATING
I can't give this book anything less than 5 wine classes!  I was pulled in from beginning to end and I recommend it to everyone!
