Why the hell can’t chicks be more like guys?
That question plagues high school senior Sam Cruz. Sam is perfectly happy being a player. He just wishes girls wouldn’t change the game from sex to relationships. It makes him look like an asshole. But when Sam’s best friend, Ally Klinger, gets dumped, she begs him to transform her into someone who can screw around then screw off. No risk of heartbreak that way. It’s Sam’s chance to create the perfect female AND cheer up his best friend. Armed with Sam’s Three Step Guide to Backseat Success, Ally gets the game better than Sam thought she would and before long, Sam has his wish: the female version of himself. Too bad it’s driving him nuts. Told from Sam’s and Ally's alternating POVs, Sam Cruz’s Infallible Guide to Getting Girls is a fast-paced YA romantic comedy that follows these teens as they navigate the minefield of sex, love, and friendship.
This contemporary teen romance contains strong language, drinking, euphemisms, and lots of “bow chicka wow wow.”

This book reminded me of the movie "He's Just Not That Into You". They are both fun romantic comedies where a guy tries o help a girl with the opposite sex. Sam is a player who doesn't believe in love. Ally is a smart good girl but gets her heart broken after her boyfriend of two years leaves her for another girl. Sam and Ally are best friends and he decides to help her by trying to make her the female version of him. Even though there was way more sex talk in this book than I usually like I didn't mind because it was very realistic. This book feels very young and made me go back to when I was 17-19. It was great switching from Sam and Ally's point of view (even though it confused me for the first few chapters) because I got both sides of the story. This is a 4 star book for me.
