How to Ruin Your Boyfriend’s Reputation by Simone Elkeles YP FIC ELKELES

Amy Nelson Barak is a spoiled princess about to learn that love can be war. Especially if your boyfriend is in the Israeli army and you decided to surprise him by going on a ten day boot camp trip at his base. Unfortunately for Amy, her boyfriend is her training officer and has to treat her like any recruit and to make things worse than terrible he has a secret that could rip their relationship apart. Amy will have to roll up her Gucci sleeves and trade in her Jimmy Choos for army boots to fight for her man.

How to Ruin Your Boyfriend’s Reputation is a cute and fun romantic comedy. It has a really good Legally Blonde in the Israeli Army feel to it. It's the third in a series, but it's very easy to pick up from this one and I never felt lost. Amy is a great narrator and very likable despite her materialism and childishness. The plot itself is predictable, but the characters and dialogue are good so it makes for a perfect light and romantic read. I also like the original and unique setting for the novel and it was interesting to learn about Israeli mandatory military service. If you want to read the first two books How to Ruin a Summer Vacation and How to Ruin my Teenage Life check them out in YP FIC ELKELES.
