(Lad Lit Blog Tour, Part One:) Book Review: The Flood (Steven Scaffardi)

The Flood
by: Steven Scaffardi

Genres: Lad Lit, Comedy

One bet, four girls, eight weeks, multiple dates. What could possibly go wrong? 

Following his traumatic eight month dry spell, Dan Hilles is back in the driving seat and ready to put his dating disasters behind him.

But if only it were that simple.

After a drunken afternoon in the pub, fueled by the confidence of alcohol, Dan makes a bet with his three best pals that will complicate his love-life more than ever when he brazenly declares that he could juggle multiple women all at the same time.

With just eight weeks to prove his point, Dan is about to find out how hard it is to date a flood of women without them all finding out about each other, especially when they come in the shape of an ex-girlfriend, a stalker, the office ice queen and the one that got away.

The Flood is the hilarious follow-up to The Drought by lad lit author Steven Scaffardi, chronicling the adventures of unlucky-in-love Dan Hilles. 

I am very new to the "lad lit" genre, and immediately found myself on Google....trying to shed some light on this adventure, for which I was about to embark. For those of you who aren't already familiar, lad lit is the male equivalent of chick lit....meaning it's written by men, with strong masculine themes, essentially allowing the readers to glimpse inside the illusive male brain.

The Flood is hilarious!  

I constantly found myself laughing out loud at the way these characters interacted with each other and dealt with various self-induced situations. Venturing into the minds of these crazy guys allowed me to have a better understanding as to why men do things the way that they do. I'm pretty certain that men will read this book and find themselves nodding their heads as they relate to the characters, and women (while wondering nonstop wtf these guys are thinking) will read it all the way through, if for no reason other than, to see how in the world the "flood" ends.

We haven't seen the last of Steven Scaffardi, and I personally can't wait to read the next adventure!
