How many men does it take to find true love?
Delilah Darling's magic number was supposed to be twenty. She always thought she'd find the perfect guy by the time she'd slept with twenty of them. But when she wakes up naked in her disgusting boss's bed after a drunken night out, she's filled with regret — and realizes she's hit her self-imposed limit. Unwilling to up her number but unable to imagine a life of celibacy, Delilah does what any girl in her situation would do: she tracks down every man she's ever slept with in a last-ditch effort to make it work with one of them.
A hilarious romp through Delilah's past loves, 20 Times a Lady proves that in the end, numbers don't matter. True love will come when you're open and ready to accept it. (Goodreads)

Kim’s take –

This book was absolutely hysterical! Delilah Darling reads an article about the average number of men a woman sleeps with in her lifetime. She is already far over this number at 19 and decides that 20 will be her cut-off point. When Delilah is let go from her job, and waste her number 20 on her revolting ex-boss, she decides to put her severance pay to good use and track down all the men she has slept with. If she finds one of them worthy of a relationship, she can keep her number at 20 without going over her limit and suffering a life of celibacy.

Delilah has some experiences that made me laugh out loud in her travels across the U.S.! From buying an adorable little pup to ending up in a mental hospital, there is not one stop Delilah makes that doesn’t turn into a comedic adventure. It doesn’t help that she has such a delusional naivety. It’s not until she is back home and at her sisters wedding that Delilah discovers everything she ever wanted was right in front of her all along. And to top it off, she finds out that her number was actually one short of what she thought! I would highly recommend this book for anyone looking for a funny, original read. Karyn Bosnak another book that I will be picking up as soon as possible!

Kim’s Rating – 5/5
