The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly Men I've Dated

The Good, The Bad, And
The Ugly Men I've Dated

(Written as Shane Bolks)

RITA® finalist for Best First Book

For most people Star Wars is a classic movie with innovative special effects. For Rory Egglehoff, accountant and self-professed geek, Star Wars is a way of life, especially when it comes to dating. Rory's theory is that men are either Wookiees—no initiative losers with the maturity of a thirteen-year-old and about as much depth—or Jedi knights—men who sweep a woman into zero gravity, making her feel like a princess.

Rory is dating a Wookiee. Tom's an even bigger nerd than she, but she fears that, in a galaxy pretty much devoid of Jedis, he's her last hope. Then her first love returns, shifting Rory's pulse into hyperdrive. The quintessential Jedi, Hunter Chase spurs Rory and her friend Allison to devise the ultimate plan. Rory's goal? A date with Hunter to their high school reunion, followed by Hunter's undying love. But when the Ultimate Jedi Plan implodes, Rory must relinquish the Force and trust in herself to capture Hunter's heart.
