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.



Dear Gents,

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.


The Modern Gentleman


Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

Their meet-cute starts with a steaming pile of dog poo and their first date ends him in the ER after a gnarly shuffleboard game gone wrong. That is all you need to know about the wonderment that is Wes and June in The Modern Gentleman. This book had me in stitches. Every time I thought a situation for poor Wes couldn’t get any worse, it did. Okay, seriously — where did Meghan Quinn come up with the ideas for the awful dates that Wes and June go on?

I absolutely adored how June took suave, sophisticated Wes and turned him into a bumbling fool. For a guy who authors an advice column, it is absolutely brilliant that none of his tricks work on June herself. So of course you just know things are going to blow up in his face since he’s kept the true nature of his work from her. (Heck, Wes says as much in the prologue as he then flashes back to their relationship and how it fell apart.)

This story is told mostly through Wes’ POV, with a few instances where June hysterically hijacks the story to tell her side of things. June really is one of a kind, unlike any other heroine I’ve seen before. She’s quirky and modest, and really makes Wes put in the effort to court her. It’s a wonderful build to their relationship, and I loved these characters so, so much!

I need more of Roman. Please, MQ, let this be a start to a new series! I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
