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

My first thought when reading Is She The One was that I enjoyed the writing style. It was well-written, descriptive, but not heavy love story, and immediately entertaining. I took an instant liking to the main characters and was hooked on seeing where the story was going to go. I liked the narrator and his take on romance, especially his 4 rules for dating. When the romance started in this book, it was really well written! I’m a rom-com fanatic, and the love story from the male point of view is one of my favorites. There were definitely some swoon-worthy parts to this novel that all rom- com fans will love! This book was entertaining and a joy to read. I really liked it and would definitely recommend it to anyone who likes a good love story!  You can order the book here.


Review #2: Is She The One by Bob Boog

A love story with some hilarious scenes and some emotional moments. Not a classic page-turner in a mystery story kind of way, but you will find yourself getting sucked up into Bob’s romantic love story, and want him to succeed.  It holds your attention from the beginning and you will slowly but surely follow him with big tears in your eyes to the end.


Review #3: Is She The One by Bob Boog

Sweet story. Not sure if I laughed more or cried. Sweet writing too and I am picky. Love a good love story. Good job.

Review #4: Is She The One by Bob Boog

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 love 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 (Sofie) with a “sexy Spanish voice.” This is Bob’s love 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 love story that will leave you with a smile on your face and tears in your eyes.  -JaKayla

Review #5: Is She The One by Bob Boog

When a friend from America encouraged me to read this book, I wanted to decline. “Is She The One” is a fictional love story 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 love story 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

Review #7: Is She The One by Bob Boog

I am trained to look through the flaws when reading a love story so I could see what a great book 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 love story 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 love story to my single friends. — Keira

Review #8: Is She The One by Bob Boog

Too good to be true!

I like the how Bob Boog, the narrator who is also the main character finds love with a girl from Guatemala. It makes him improve so much. His love life which seemed to be upside down was brought back on track. Finding true love is a beautiful thing. But is she really the one?

Joel is the one making the whole book to be comic. His behavior and utterances are just too funny. He makes the love story to be very relevant. He represents the whole lot of middle aged guys who appear to be confused about the lives yet they pretend to be doing quite fine.

I had a chance to check some other works by the narrator/author and it was really awesome.

Review #9: Is She The One by Bob Boog

I just want to applaud the Author for writing such a wonderful realistic and romantic love story. I honestly totally enjoyed reading it from the beginning to the end and there was not even a single boring moment.
I am an avid romance genre reader and most love stories I have read usually have unrealistic cliché endings usually rushed and fairytale like. And so it was very refreshing to find realness in this love story as it related to the kind of romance which happens in real life causing me to be totally hooked to the story. The Author also tackled important real life experiences that people experience from interracial relationships, peer pressure to dating.
The writing style was just amazing and made me wish I could also write like that and bring a love story to life in such a captivating way. The plot was full of humor causing me lots of laughing moments too. All the characters were portrayed very well with their own distinct qualities.
The quote at the end was also sweet contributing more to the uniqueness of the story.
So thank you so much for this wonderful chance to read this amazing story, I totally enjoyed it.

Review #10: Is She The One by Bob Boog

You will probably not post this review because it’s not like the others. So here is a NEGATIVE REVIEW.

Please note, I am 26 and LOVED this book so when my granny asked to borrow it, I gave it to her. It’s a quick read and funny but she is 72 and did NOT like it. AT ALL! She wrote me an email with a list of things that I thought I should respond and pass on to Mr. Boog, My notes to her are in parenthesis.

  1. A good romance should introduce the love interest by page 4 – not by Chapter 4.” (Note to granny: this is a LOVE STORY – not a romantic fiction novel!!)
  2. The male characters in a romance should talk in flowery language like poets. The way these boys talk about having sex with anonymous girls while driving is disgusting and probably doesn’t even happen in real life. (Note to granny: I have hung around guys and this is EXACTLY how most guys talk today!)
  3. The character Joel is disgusting. He is terrible. I can’t understand why Bob is friends with him. (Note to granny: Like it or not, a lot of good guys have disgusting or weird friends!)
  4. I didn’t like when Bob brought the dog home. Roxanne told him she didn’t want a dog so he should respect her wishes. I cannot believe for the life of me why she would put up with that kind of disrespect.(Note to granny: Bob saved the dog from getting killed. I loved him for doing that – even though he knew it would upset his girl.)
  5. The “Marv Griffing” character has GOT to be Merv Griffen who I adored. I cannot believe the real Merv would ever use foul language. (Note to granny: It’s not that big of a deal. After all, Hollywood celebs are humans too.)
  6. I just cannot see Merv Griffen running to stop his hired help from leaving. I didn’t find that part funny at all. (Note to granny: they were all packed into a VW. I thought the part when Roxanne rolled up the window in Merv’s face was hysterical. She doesn’t take shit from anybody. Good for her!)
  7. I didn’t find the book to be funny. It is supposed to be a partly true romance but the characters just seemed vulgar. (Note to granny: It is a romantic comedy. Comedy is a subjective thing. Maybe what you think is funny, I won’t. Most young people, I think, will find this book to be funny.)
  8. I don’t understand how people on Amazon can give this book a 5 star review. I would give it one star – at best! (Note to granny: it’s extremely rare to find a love story written from the guy’s point of view. Usually they are written from the girl’s side. So to find something witty and well-written like this book, well, they probably appreciate it more than you do!)
  9. I would definitely NOT buy his next book. (Note to granny: I am actually looking forward to reading the next one!)
  10.  I didn’t notice any mistakes in punctuation and spelling though which is good. So many books nowadays have punctuation errors. (Note to granny: YAY! Finally something positive!)

Review #11: Is She The One by Bob Boog

Saw something on Twitter for a free download and got the book and read it. In fact, he doesn’t know who this is because I made up a fake email address, but I have personally met the guy and know him. If there was an award for “Real estate agent I would most like to have a beer with,” he would win it.

My observations on “Is She The One”: it’s a quick read. Fun. A good bring-to-the-beach book. It’s a book like “All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten” except this is above-average love story that seems very marketable. It could be sold at WalMart. Did I enjoy the humor? Yes. Did I enjoy the love story? Yes. Could I see the ending coming a mile away? Yes. But I think if you read this book like I did without any expectations, you will probably enjoy it.

How to Find a Killer Real Estate Deal 

As Joan Rivers would say, “Can we talk?” People on TV make flipping homes sound so easy. Doesn’t it seem like someone hands them a steal-of-a-deal property, then they’ll use a few sledge hammers and a crew of workers to fix up a house in record time. Then there will be a problem. Should they put in a window in the bathroom or not? They decide to invest another $150 bucks in the window installation, the new home-buyers love it and then it’s off to the next week’s episode.

But WAIT! I scream from my living room couch. How did they find that killer deal in the first place? That’s what I want to know.

Because my experience with selling homes in Los Angeles is much different. For me, FINDING the deal in the first place is NOT that easy. People aren’t keen to just give their homes away.  We know people buy and flip homes all the time, but how do they do it?

That’s what this book/video course is about. I have been able to help a few investors maximize their profits. This is a $55 video course, not a book, but unlike Trump University there are NO upsells. I cannot guarantee you will find a killer real estate deal – only that your odds will improve.

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.

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!

Joke 2: Jack Schitt

In Canada, Miles Davis is known as “Kilometers Davis” but for some time many of us have wondered just who is Jack Schitt? Is he for real?

In fact, we often find ourselves at a loss when someone says, ‘You don’t know Jack Schitt!’

Well, thanks to my genealogy efforts, you can now respond in a totally intellectual way.

Jack Schitt is the only son of Awe Schitt. Awe Schitt, the fertilizer
magnate, married O. Schitt, the owner of Needeep N. Schitt, Inc. They had
one son, Jack. In turn, Jack Schitt married Noe Schitt.

The deeply religious couple produced six children: Holie Schitt, Giva
Schitt, Fulla Schitt, Bull Schitt, and the twins Deep Schitt and Dip Schitt.
Against her parents’ objections, Deep Schitt married Dumb Schitt, a high
school dropout.

After being married 15 years, Jack and Noe Schitt divorced. Noe Schitt later
married Ted Sherlock, and because her kids were living with them, she wanted
to keep her previous name. She was then known as Noe Schitt Sherlock.

Meanwhile, Dip Schitt married Loda Schitt, and they produced a son with a
rather nervous disposition named Chicken Schitt.

Two of the other six children, Fulla Schitt and Giva Schitt, were
inseparable throughout childhood and subsequently married the Happens
brothers in a dual ceremony. The wedding announcement in the newspaper
announced the Schitt-Happens nuptials. The Schitt-Happens children were
Dawg, Byrd, and Horse. Bull Schitt, the prodigal son, left home to tour the
world. He recently returned from Italy with his new Italian bride, Pisa Schitt.

Now when someone says, ‘You don’t know Jack Schitt’ you can correct them.

Your friend,
Crock O. Schitt

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!
