Melanie Jacobson does it again. This time, we leave behind the confident, charismatic characters of "The List" and are introduced to the shy, the awkward and the self-conscious. Which, frankly, I am sure most of us can relate with better, anyway. Broken engagements, emotional baggage, insecurities and flaws abound, but still leave us with lovable characters that you just want to cheer for. Or give a big Melanie Jacobson does it again

Books by Melanie Jacobson. Not My Type, A Single Girl's Guide To Doing It All Wrong (2000). Well, first of all, this book featured a pleasant surprise for me: it takes place in Utah, which is where I'm from. Two masterful professionals go head to head in a zoning dispute.

White water rafting excursion guide Roger Jolly is thrust into a life or death situation during a six-day camping and rafting excursion. Jolly, a former Navy SEAL, sets out with a former SEAL brother and their passengers in two boats. Sparks fly between Jolly and a beautiful passenger, Jeannie Jenkins, and a complicated relationship develops.

Twenty-three-year-old Pepper Spicer is not living the dream. She ended her engagement at the last minute because her fiance,a musician and soon-to-be reality TV star, wanted her to sacrifice her own career ambitions for his. Now she's stuck at home sharing a room with her little sister, trying to pay off massive debt for a wedding that didn t happen, and spending Friday nights Facebook-stalking everyone who has a better life. Her therapist father urges her to choose her career dreams and count her blessings by writing weekly thank-you notes, but gratitude is a tall order when she botches an important job interview and has to settle for writing an undercover dating web-zine column the last thing in the world she wants to do. Still, as Pepper (byline: Indie Girl) chronicles her bizarre and hilarious blind dates, she gives her father's challenge a try and slowly finds herself leaving self-pity behind. Life takes a major upswing as Pepper's column hits the big time and she tastes the exhilarating thrill of success. But there's one tiny problem: the intensely hot man she's falling for is having issues with her job (again). Will Pepper trade her personal ambition for another chance at love?

The Pros: The wit. The snark. The awesome voice. Considering I follow/stalk Melanie on Twitter, none of that surprised me. I LOVED Pepper as a character. Every character was so great, especially the love interests. Yes. Interests. The romantic arc was fabulous, but what I thought was awesome was that this story really revolved more around Pepper and her journey than it did about Pepper finding love -- although that was important too. And it had great lines. GREAT lines. Melanie spilled a great message without ever, ever coming off as preachy. One important thing I noted so I could remember to share -- I like how Pepper is not "naive" about her attraction to the main love interest. She resists, she doubts, but she admits it instead of floating on along, like a lot of romance heroines I come across, wondering why in the world does this guy keep paying attention to me? Yes. Thumbs up.

He Said/She Said: "From the first taste of butternut squash bisque to the last bite of cherry cheesecake, the food was diving -- as in, I think Courtney's mom stirred everything with angel feathers." (LOVE)

"I guess it's so I can feel like making out with you is sanctioned if we're officially dating."

Okay, and I have to share one more. My *sigh* moment. (You guys know how important it is to me to have the *sigh* moment in a romance book.) "... the gentle brush of his lips drew a sigh from me I didn't know I was holding."

Mmmmmm. Yum.

I am not usually a 4 star person for a light book, but the book was cleverly written. Reading about Pepper (MC) try to pull her life together after a failed engagement, and living with her family, with the often crazy situations involved with family life was a fun ride! I say ride, because from chapter to chapter, between her various jobs, the people she meets, job interviews, the ideas spinning in her head, and the things she is doing for work, her home life, etc...It makes for a surprising, cleverly romantic read. Clean novel, LDS setting, but other than some mild references to attending church, would appeal to most people who like a clean romantic story with a quirky protagonist. Her various and sundry internet dates, columns and various other situations in her family make for a clever, and witty read! Being in her head as she weighs out various situations and the people in her life, and trying to mesh her day to day life with what she dreams could be there for her, and her final solution along with the Thank you notes, ended on a beautiful high!
This was my second MJ book, and I know I will be reading more of her books in the future. Her mix of humor, real characters, and just enough romantic tension make for a wonderful read! Her setting, in Salt Lake City, with an LDS single adult background, and in the midst of family life and life events, would be enjoyed by anyone with her witty descriptions and characterizations. Portraying the efforts of Pepper to get her life on the right track, out of her romantic woe is me funk after her broken engagement a week before the wedding, a dead end job, and into her dream journalism job, back into the dating scene and a real relationship was funny and engaging. Her journey as she struggles to pay off a debt, and regain her emotional momentum is funny, and a great read! You will feel "pepped" up after reading Pepper's journey. One of my favorite lines, albeit corny was when Tanner says to Pepper on a trampoline date, "I guess I should have warned you that I meant to knock you off your feet." Having read "365 Thank yous" by John Kralik, the thank you notes that her father assigned her to write that were part of each chapter, also tweaked my interest! So glad her note to Tanner didn't doom their relationship! The lead up to their first kiss was one of the best I have read..Jacobson crafts the story so she gets all the little moments that build to the romantic tension that we all crave...One of my top first kiss scenes of all time...The feelings are there, but the tension before the kiss was what makes it fun!
Genuine characters, poking fun at the other dates that Pepper goes on for her column, her funny descriptions of events, her family life, made for a fun read! Laughs, romance, and fun! Enjoy the ride!
Don't be put off by the cover. The characters are adults in their twenties, not teenyboppers. They have careers and are ready for adult responsiblities.

I just finished reading "Not My Type" and have to give it the highest rating. I thoroughly enjoyed the author's first book, "The List", but this one is even better! It kept me laughing all the way through, and I cared about the characters. I could identify with Pepper's life, family and friends, but she provides more witty commentary than I could.

Also, the kindle edition is good; very few typos.
Not My Type by Melanie Jacobson is another fabulous book by this author. She is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. This is an easy and clean read. I love all of the life lessons that Pepper learns along the way as she heals from having her heart and pocketbook broken. The thank you notes were great idea. I love that Pepper is her own person and doesn't conform. Great book that I will definitely reread and pass on to others.
I loved The List and so was very excited to see that Ms. Jacobson had written another book. I love romance novels that are not completely predictable, not too sappy (too much pondering by the main characters about each other - Oh I love him, but he doesn't love me, how will I ever survive - he's so handsome and has perfectly sculpted muscles....), and zero skank. Not My Type was perfect. Plus it was FUNNY! I loved the humor. I only purchase books that I will read over and over, and I purchased this one! I highly recommend it.
Great book. I love all of Melanie Jacobson's books.
I really loved this book. One thing that was so refreshing was to have loving helpful parents that helped Pepper through all her issues. I loved the story and the thank you notes and Peppers personality. Thanks Melanie for having such lovable characters and giving the parents in this book loving credibility.
The heroine has depth and layers and blind spots and wit. Squeaky clean and written with tasty spice, don't miss this one!
