Review: Just A Nice Guy by Phil Torcivia

Cover Source: GoodReads.com
Title: Just A Nice Guy
Author Phil Torcivia
Version Reviewed: Finished, Paperback

GoodReads Summary:
Is it true that nice guys finish last? It sure seems that way as a divorced man fights his way through a comedic dating scene. Will he ever find his soul mate? Phil has been called the male version of Carrie Bradshaw. Enjoy his humorous essays about relationships and the struggles we all have finding and keeping lovers. Women appreciate his open view into the minds of men. Artist Mike Swaim adds to the hilarity with his brilliant sketches, giving another dimension to Phil's quest for love.
I have to say that this book was amazing and I can't wait to read more from Phil Torcivia. Not my normal kind of read, but it was hilarious and I enjoyed it immensly. And it was a quick read (or maybe I read fast?). Either way, I loved Just A Nice Guy.

This book is basically an insiders look on the dating scene, the hilarity of men and women looking for that one person that they want to spend their lives (or more realistically, their beds) with. We get a look at what really goes on inside a man's brain, and occasionally the woman's. Nothing held back.

This book is definitely not for younger readers. It is intended (and should be kept) as an adult read. It touches on everything from pets, "toys", sex, alcohol, what to do, what not to do, and everything in between, plus more. There's humor on practically every page, and the illustrations are graphic, amusing, and very well done.

This is definitely a book I will pull off my bookshelf and read again in the future. And my husband has already claimed rights on reading it next.

Phil Torcivia is an honest, raw, humorous author. And he does his job very well. 

Memorable Quote:
"If you're going to poke fun at somebody, make sure you can defend or at least laugh at yourself."
Rating: 4 Stars.
