A laugh-out-loud debut novel that will delight fans of Bridget Jones’ Diary and HBO’s Girls

Love by the Book charts a year in the life of Lauren Cunningham, a beautiful, intelligent, and unlucky-in-love twenty-eight-year-old American. Feeling old before her time, Lauren moves to London in search of the fab single life replete with sexy Englishmen. But why can’t she convince the men she’s seeing that she really isn’t after anything more serious than seriously good sex? Determined to break the curse, Lauren turns her love life into an experiment: each month she will follow a different dating guide until she discovers the science behind being a siren. Lauren will follow the rules, she’ll play the game, and along the way she’ll journal her (mis)adventures and maybe even find someone worth holding on to. Witty, gritty, and very true to life, Love by the Book will have you in stitches.

    Cara Lockwood, USA Today bestselling author

  • Who hasn't wondered whether if they just hit on the precise formula, they'd find the right man? In Love by the Book, Pimentel's protagonist, Lauren, explores this idea full-tilt by adopting an advice-book-of-the-month approach to the problem. I often found myself laughing out loud and quickly turning the pages to find out what that month's dictum would have Lauren doing. A fun, fast-paced read. Catherine McKenzie, bestselling author of Hidden and Arranged

  • Love by the Book hits its humor beats in all the right places, and I love when someone comes up with an idea that prompts me to say 'I wish I had thought of that'. Pimentel's 'experiment' proves that the best book on love is the one you write yourself along the way. Elisa Lorello, bestselling author of Faking It and She Has Your Eyes

  • I loved this book! So smart and sassy but with a great big heart, too. It sends up the whole game of modern romance by applying Harvard Business School techniques, Victorian dating rules and Flapper ideology to the Tinder age.
