Curing the Uncommon Man-Cold by J.L. Salter

Curing the Uncommon Man-Cold

A stubborn boyfriend with the sniffles is the last thing Amanda needs in her apartment during THIS work crisis, but how can she get clueless Jason to leave without just ending their relationship?

Fortunately, her divorced girlfriend hurriedly develops the devious scare-cure. Amanda throws everything at Jason that Christine can dream up and that apartment becomes the least hospitable place a man could possibly imagine. Extensive potpourri and a glued-down toilet seat are just the beginning.

But how serious are the privacy risks as Christine blogs about her scare-cure? Can this crazy scheme really get Jason out of Amanda’s hair at home before she loses her mind at work?

Will Amanda’s relationship even survive the kooky cure of Jason’s man-cold?

a "clean" screwball romantic comedy

Tifferz Take~
Amanda and her girlfriend Christine get a little carried away trying to cure Amanda's boyfriend Jason's man cold. I got a some laughs with the read and felt bad for Jason. The toothpaste part was gross but at least he had good breath. I kinda felt he deserved it as he just did not listen to Amanda. But Amanda did not stick up for herself either. Things get straightened out eventually. Lessons they learned communicate, listen and don't manipulate. At the end of Curing the Uncommon Man-cold I was left smiling.  I would recommend this read!

Just FYI this has no swearing and all sex is behind closed doors. It does have a little detail of the before and after sex.

Chelz Review~
This book is hilarious!!!!! My family would look at me strangely, because I would all of a sudden start laughing out loud while I was reading. I love that Catherine (a well-meaning best friend) comes up with a very creative plan to cure the common man-cold for her dear friend Amanda. While the story seems a little extreme, there is validity to men becoming pansies when they are ill. Catherine and Amanda's plan has some flaws however, Mr. Salter gives us a happy ending.
