My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Matteson Perry is what you’d refer to as a nice guy. Always trying to treat a lady right and had always been in committed relationships being a serial monogamist. But when the girl he thought would be his one and only dumps him he decides it’s time to change things up and try casual dating. His Plan: 1. Be single for a year. 2. Date a lot of women. 3. Hurt no one’s feelings.

Available is a memoir written of Matteson Perry’s experience with dating and relationships. It’s often incredibly funny which I enjoyed. A look into a male’s experience with the single life when he’s not a player or very good at the whole dating thing it was somewhat of an interesting read.

I do think the one thing that brought my rating down a bit was it seemed to get a bit repetitive after a while reading about this date or that experience. And I also would have probably been better off skipping the whole chapter with the drug experimenting.

Overall though this was a fun read, Matteson can be a funny guy just from the first page where it mentions he’s changed the names, not to protect those in the book but because he came up with better names. I didn’t necessarily agree with everything and find it hard to rate a memoir feeling I’m judging someone’s life but decided on three stars in the end for overall enjoyment of the read.

I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
