BOOK REVIEW: THE BLONDE THEORY
We have all heard the old sayings, "Do Gentlemen Prefer Blondes?" or "Do Blondes Really Have More Fun"? Well, this book will try to set the "Blonde Theory" straight once and for all.
Harper Roberts seems to be in line for a very promising career. She is the youngest attorney in her firm to make partner (something a young woman should not be doing because there were plenty of men in line that should have received this honor first). Harper is also the oldest in her firm to remain unmarried.
Harper thought her boyfriend, Peter, would be happy for her but instead she found him packing his bags. He was not happy that Harper just "had to be better than him".
Now the problem gets worse. The more successful Harper becomes, she realizes that men are going in the other direction. Are they jealous? Is it that they just don't want the competition? Are they afraid of someone who is "smart"? What is the problem?
Harper's friend, Meg, had the answer. Meg believed that in order for Harper to get more dates, she had to act like a "dumb blonde". Meg worked as an editor for Mod Magazine and one of the projects she is working on is called "Dating Files". Each month a different dating topic was discussed.
This idea would be a perfect topic for the magazine! Harper agreed to go along and play this game for two weeks. What happens to Harper? Does she get more dates?
This book is an entertaining and funny read. The author has a clever way with words that will make the reader laugh several times. This is not a book for the serious reader but one for someone who wants to sit down after a hard day at the office, relax and have some really good laugh out loud moments. It just might make you think twice the next time you are introduced to a woman who happens to be blonde and a partner in a law firm!
