From Goodreads:
When accident-prone Helen Grey finds a thong stuffed into the pocket of her boyfriend’s best work trousers, it’s time for her to move on. His excuse that he needed to dust the photocopier and just thought that it was a rag sounds like a lame excuse.

Helen’s life is propelled in an unexpected direction after her best friend, Ayshe, sets her a fourteen-day, life-changing challenge. Helen receives a task everyday which she must complete without question. The tasks are designed to build her confidence and boost her self-esteem but all they seem to do is push her closer to Ayshe’s brother, Kalem.

How will Kalem and Helen get together when she’s too foolish to realize that she loves him? How can he fall for her when he is too busy falling prey to her mishaps and too in love with his own perfect girlfriend? How will Kalem’s Turkish Cypriot family react when they find out?

Is it really possible to change your life in fourteen days?


Oh this book was just awesome. I loved Helene...poor accident prone Helene. Attempting to get over her ex-boyfriend Justin, Helene's best friend puts her on a 14 day challenge that is suppose to change her life. During the challenge, she comes across the weirdest of men and slowly start to realize that she is in love with Kalem, her best friend's brother. 

There were just too many funny lines in this book to count and I cracked up through the whole thing. Don't where to tender moments too, but the funny outweighed them. I have a heap of favorites in this one, but the best one was when Helene goes on a date with a doctor who has bald head & her friends father suggest he rubs goat poo on his head to get his hair to grow...LMAO!!!! It was too much. 

I highly enjoyed this book, it was kinda like a Bridget Jones Diary...but way more funnier. If you are looking for a hysterical romantic comedy, this is it! As Helene goes through the motions of trying to find Mr. Right,  in the end she realizes what she thought  was perfect man isn't exactly what she needed in the end. 

This one gets 5 Black Orchids.

Lata Days...MUAH!
