Review of Bob Boog’s NEW Book: “Is she The One”

From the moment you start reading “Is she the one” you know you have something very special before you. While the book is obviously a romance story, there are parts in this book that had me laughing on the floor. Gotta love some comedy in your romance story. I was rooting for the main character (Bob) throughout the story who fell hard for a beautiful woman (Sandy) with a “sexy Spanish voice.” This is Bob’s story, and while his exact circumstances are divinely unique to him, and may be semi-autobiographical, there are themes that I believe we all can relate to. I found myself at several points nodding my head in agreement, yes, I’ve been there, I’ve felt that which is what kept me reading. His journey is something we can all learn and grow from and make you believe in wonders It’s a very funny yet touching story that will leave you with a smile on your face and tears in your eyes.  -JaKayla

Five stars out of Five


When a friend from America encouraged me to read this book, I wanted to decline. “Is She The One” is a fictional romance written by a man who lives in Los Angeles and works as a real estate broker, I honestly didn’t think it would be very good. But the witty dialogue in the first few pages grabbed my attention and then the funny story turned into a romance that wouldn’t let me go until the last page. That being said, there were a few grammatical errors in the version I received so I would give “Is She The One” four stars out of five. Change those tiny errors and it’s a five out of five. Hands down. – Rebecca

I am trained to look through the flaws when reading a story so I could see what a great story this will be once polished well. It has a great quality even with the small bit of flaws (mostly editing help that I could see). You don’t read many books written this way. Is She The One is a romance where the semi-autographical character Bob knows what he needs to do to get the girl. But will he do it? Usually characters either figure it out themselves or the girl tells them off and they understand what they have to do to figure it out, etc. This, however, was a nice twist. It’s very funny and yet touching. I kept rooting for him and the part with the dog actually made me cry a little. (So keep a tissue handy!) Finally, I would definitely recommend this book to my single friends. — Keira

Here are some advanced reviews:

The Real Estate Rookie Review #1:

The Real Estate Rookie by Bob Boog is the often ridiculous, sometimes absurd and always hilarious account of Bob Boog’s journey from someone who would cringe at the very mention of real estate, to one who lived and breathed every moment of it. Boog is a talented writer with a wicked sense of humor and people who work in a specific niche will most likely fall in love with this book.

The Real Estate Rookie softcover edition is 116 pages

The Real Estate Rookie Review #2

A novel about a real estate agent selling houses is not something I would normally pick up, but I was pleasantly surprised with what I was presented with. The Real Estate Rookie is a fun read and the writer is very humorous. Mr Boog is good at creating a funny situation out of a mundane one. Characters are well-developed and none are left by the wayside. If you are looking for an easy going, guilt-free book to bring to the beach; one that won’t take too much time out of your day, the Real Estate Rookie is the sort of book to pick up.

The Real Estate Rookie Review #3

So, after reading the entire book, I must say that your writing is very, very good , and I’ve read a various range of books. Your story line flows without any adversities and that takes skill. I like the unique theme of the book itself.  It’s not too long or too short, I think it’s just the right size to make a short but worthwhile read. Great job.

 

The Real Estate Rookie Review #4

Bob Boog brought to the fore the profession of real-estate agent, from an interesting perspective, the action taking place apparently in 1981, in the writer’s youth. I enjoyed the manner in which the author combined the fiction with real facts! He transposed his professional and personal background into a story with shades of romance and a significant dose of humor and realism, making it purely entertaining! I warmly recommend The Real Estate Rookie.

Question: Will there be an audiobook?

Answer: Yes! The files are at the studio now, so it should be out shortly. Here is the cover.

Best Dog T-Shirt

Best Dog T-shirt.

After my dog Winston died, I wrote a poem that got turned into a song. And then it became a video. Some folks have even played this tune and liked it on YouTube. About this time, I also made a “Dogs Rule” t-shirt inspired by a tattoo that my son Kevin has on his chest. The t-shirt costs around $20 and if you are interested, here is the link for the Dogs Rule t-shirt.

Back to my song.  Written for dog lovers, it’s called “Wait for You”.

Best Dog Joke

My neighbor is a single and VERY attractive young lady. She lives across the street from me and I can actually see her house from my living room window. I watched as she got home from work this evening.  She was wearing black fishnets, heels and a mini-skirt with a white, low-top blouse.I was surprised when she made her way across the street and stepped up my driveway. She knocked on my door, so I rushed to open it. She looked at me with her lovely brown eyes, and said, “I’m sorry to bother you, and it’s kind of embarrassing. But I have a favor to ask.”

“Sure, anything” I said.

She smiled seductively. “I’ve had a cocktail at work, just got home, and I am so damn horny! I have this strong urge to have a good time, get drunk, and make love all night long! Are you busy tonight?” Stunned, I could barely get the words out. I immediately replied, “Tonight? Nope, I am COMPLETELY free… I have no plans at all!” Then she said, “Good! In that case, could you watch my dog?”

Review by Author Fred Lucas

Here is a review of My Real Estate Nightmare by author Fred Lucas.

Here’s the review.

My Real Estate Nightmare: based on a true story which means it happened more or less like this but with uglier people is a lot of fun, with only a little schooling on real estate along the way. It’s a genuine comedy that could be easily turned into a movie with a foreboding violent ex-con, a Swedish model, a crazy cat lady, a Harvard-educated lawyer being brought down a few pegs and a valued piano flying out of a moving truck and being crushed by an oncoming 18-wheeler to provide the action. Best of all, it’s true – or “mostly true” as the author says.

My Real Estate Nightmare by Bob Boog is about a real estate deal that goes haywire in unimaginable ways for the author and main character who was going out of his way to help a crazy cat lady. It’s somewhat inspiring to take some of the most bizarre episodes of our own lives that could be turned into a laugh-out loud comedy.

The writing style is witty and conversational from California realtor, Bob Boog. He uses a lot of parallel descriptions to describe the characters, one resembling Brad Pitt, another Will Farrell and a Jim Carrey reference to facial expressions. It also has some nice descriptions like, “dishes were stacked up and leaning in the sink like a ‘Cat in the Hat’ book.”

Throughout, I really wanted to know what happened next. The opening chapters were very lively. If I had to critique something, it might be that there seemed to be aspects that didn’t advance the story at hand. Perhaps out of a sense of obligation, so as not to sound like he was moping, the author digressed on what were true nightmares in the lives of some of his clients. Heart wrenching stories, but a little out of place – particular for a mostly sidesplitting book.

The book even has some element of spirituality. Though not a man of deep faith, the author portrays very positively Pastor Jim – who helps out with the problem and gives some comforting advice — and a “Holy Man from India” named Yogi (whom Boog gives a lift to the train station).

The author promises an anti-climatic ending – but then over delivers with a very gratifying conclusion.

All-in-all, My Real Estate Nightmare is a good narrative with good characters — one suspects might be slightly exaggerated for better story telling. But a highly recommend book, and something that would be a worthwhile movie. Read it and laugh!

Dear Bob,

My wife and I lost our dog Susy. Susy was more than just “a pet” and your song “Wait for You” really touched our hearts. My wife started to cry when she heard it. I just wanted you to know how much your song moved us both.

Dear Mr. Boog, I was the blond girl two people behind you in the express lane at Vons. When the checker said to you “Thank you for your donation”…that’s when I looked up. What I saw was the kindest looking man I have seen in a long time. You had an honest smile on your face and I couldn’t stop staring. As the checker said “Thank you Mr. Boog, is it Boog or Boog?” you said something, and she laughed and I watched you walk out of the store.

I just wanted you to know that you brought a smile to my face. You didn’t get mad at her. You made a joke and she laughed and there was a genuineness and honesty about you that I never see in LA. You just seemed so nice! And happy! That makes you very attractive. You had a total impact on me. Believe me, I needed it. Thank you!

Dear Bob,

My sister is a Facebook “fan” of yours, though i think “stalker” might be a better term. ha ha. She has sent me almost every single one of your posts and even when you reply to other people. We both love your funny posts. Keep writing. Keep up the good work!

A Reviewer from England writes:

My Real Estate Nightmare is not usually a book I would normally pick up to read but it was recommended to me by a friend and I thought I’d give it a go.  I actually started reading this on my Lunch break at work and before I knew it the break was over and hadn’t looked up at the clock in almost an hour! I love novels like that where you can lose yourself and just focus on the story.

I won’t spoil it by telling you what happens but if you’re looking for a light read which is easy to pick up in-between everyday life then this is the novel for you, It’ll have you laughing and cringing and very thankful that you’re job isn’t as complicated or as involved our poor real estate agent (Bob) who goes above and beyond the call of duty only to face trials he never saw coming. Informative, funny and well-written.

Here is a Brief Snippet of the Prologue to the Book.

I’m not really a doctor, but I play one at Starbucks. My name is Bob Boog and I am the author of this book and a real estate broker and owner of a small company called Bob Boog Realty.

If you are wondering, I pronounce my last name like “Boogie-man” and not with a long O sound like a “bow” although a friend from Europe told me that “boog” means “bow” or “arch” in Dutch.

My realty company is located in Santa Clarita, CA and for those of you unfamiliar with Southern California, Santa Clarita lies about 33 miles north of downtown Los Angeles, or 35 miles east of the Pacific Ocean, and about 100 miles away from the mountains where in the winter there is skiing or snowboarding.

There is a popular 262 acre theme park called Six Flags Magic Mountain planted four miles away from Santa Clarita, so a lot of people know where that is.

People in real estate will often use minutes instead of miles to help sell our location which I think borders on being a little deceptive. We will tell a house hunter, for example, “Santa Clarita lies only 34 minutes from the beach without traffic,” or “Santa Clarita is just 30 minutes north of downtown LA, without traffic.”

This sounds pretty appealing, doesn’t it?

But who is kidding who?

Because in Los Angeles, there is almost ALWAYS traffic. A person could drive to LAX (Los Angeles International airport) at 2:00 in the morning on a Sunday and STILL probably hit traffic. Thank goodness for those wide, paved road shoulders that important people like me are entitled to use during traffic jams.

Actually, I am not that important because I am a middle child.
