Have you ever hit rock bottom?
I embarrassingly have.
It’s why I’m wearing my girl’s decorative scarf over my head, clutching her lady drink to my chest, and singing ever so softly to Joni Mitchell while swaying back and forth.
This is what therapists refer to as LOSING IT.
Oldest story in the book: boy meets girl, boy falls for girl, boy screws up MASSIVELY, girl tells boy to suffocate in the fruits of his very own unborn children.
Heard it before? I’m sure you have.
So what’s so different about this story? Well, it’s about me, The Modern Gentleman, New York City’s top advice columnist, and my rather ungraceful downfall from my pristinely polished pedestal.
It’s about a girl I met who threw all my proven theories to the wind and left me awkward, needy, and absolutely head-over-wingtipped shoes in love.
This is a story about June Lacy and how she single-handedly dismantled The Modern Gentleman.

Oh my goodness, I have no idea where to start with this review. I mean I laughed so much in this book! Out loud, so much it made my dogs not even want to snuggle with me on the couch because I was laughing so hard. There are just so many moments in this story that I still giggle about as I write this just thinking about them. The shuffleboard incident and show and tell of the injury at the office soon after. The Boozy Brunch followed by the rainbow crotch lap dance! LOL! You have to read this if you want to laugh. And I know that might sound really crazy and out there, but June made Wes wait and earn it all. Her phone number, a kiss, all of it. It was such a slow build for the physical part of the relationship, courting if you will. I mean the “modern gentleman” in a way, is a throwback to the original “gentleman” we think of.
I love that this story was kind of like How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, but it even called itself out for that when Wes came up with the idea for the article he was doing that led to this whole wonderful romantic tale. Every time I think Meghan Quinn has written something so funny it can’t be topped, she does it even better in the next book. Pick this one up, even if you like a sweet romance, the actual physical bedroom scenes are the slow burn to get to, and not the whole story like you might think! I promise you’ll laugh your butt off!
Oh yeah, and while I’ve always been a huge boy band fan, I’ve attended every NKOTB concert in my hometown since I was in high school, thanks to this book, I downloaded my very first Jonas Brothers song.
See that remote in your hand? Yeah, the one that’s covered in pizza sauce and last night’s Buffalo wings? I want you to take a good look at it. Do you have it memorized? Good, now bend at the waist, set it on the coffee table, and stand up. Don’t you dare look at that remote again, don’t even glance at it. And the Xbox that’s calling your name, go ahead and forget about that as well, because guess what? You’re starting a new journey and it doesn’t include television, video games, or high-fiving over a bubbly belch from the bowels of your intestinal tract. Forget everything you’ve ever known about being a man, forget the hall passes you have for being a man, and forget every natural instinct you carry inside your bones. Because I’m here to refine you, replenish your knowledge on the male species, and turn you into a modern gentleman: a well-respected, polished, and confident individual with an epic sex appeal and killer style that will woo any female with a simple flash of your honest charm.
Stick with me, gents. I’m starting a revolution and it begins with you.
Sincerely, The Modern Gentleman
