The Vacaville Reporter
“Like a favorite recipe, this story is a crowd pleaser, as interesting to female as male readers, with interesting characters, humor and fun plot twists. It also has some epic hangover scenes, which are required for any story about unrequited love. The Broken Heart Diet is the perfect book to tuck in your weekend getaway bag, a great gift for that friend who loves to cook, and I think it would lend itself well to book club groups. It might even help a friend on the broken heart diet start smiling — and eating again.” – Read the whole story at Vacaville Reprter

“And what’s this we have? ‘Chick lit’ written by a dude? Indeed, and it is AWESOME. Whoever said men couldn’t write romance for women needs to take a long, hard look at their thoughts and acquaint themselves with this book.” – Read the complete review at Rabbit Hole Reads
