It Takes Balls: Dating Single Moms and Other Confessions from an Unprepared Dad by Josh Wolf

Book: It Takes Balls: Dating Single Moms and Other Confessions from an Unprepared Dad
Author: Josh Wolf
Release date (if applicable): Published

Synopsis: Josh entertains us with written stories about his time as a single dad looking for love.
My rating:5 Stars
My opinion: OK, before I start this review, I have to admit something. I have been a HUGE Josh Wolf fan for years. I compare his "Vodsicle" routine to Bill Cosby's "I brought you into this world...I can take you out" routine. I had been stalking to see if Josh Wolf was going to write a book of his own instead of chapters in Chelsea Handler books. The second I saw this on Netgalley, it was requested!

On that note, I was sucked into this book from page one and it never made it to my Nook. I started it at 10pm last night and finished it in a little over one hour. I simply could not put it down. It was exactly the quality I expected from this incredibly talented comic. His writing is as sarcastic as he is and this book would probably be KILLER on audio, especially since he has done his own narration!  I know it is now on my wishlist.

I am giving warning to those easily offended, Josh uses foul language and very strong sexual language. Offended by that? This book is probably not for you. Not offended by that or, like me, seek it out...grab this fun read. 

Like Chelsea Handler's Are You There Vodka, It's Me, Chelsea, Josh had several stories that I was laughing so hard that I was tearing up. 

And to whoever talked Josh into writing a book...KUDOS. Don't let it be his only one!
