How many men does it take to find true love?

Delilah Darling's magic number was supposed to be twenty. She always thought she'd find the perfect guy by the time she'd slept with twenty of them. But when she wakes up naked in her disgusting boss's bed after a drunken night out, she's filled with regret — and realizes she's hit her self-imposed limit. Unwilling to up her number but unable to imagine a life of celibacy, Delilah does what any girl in her situation would do: she tracks down every man she's ever slept with in a last-ditch effort to make it work with one of them.

A hilarious romp through Delilah's past loves, 20 Times a Lady proves that in the end, numbers don't matter. True love will come when you're open and ready to accept it.

Review:

"Bosnak, the woman behind the popular 'Save Karyn' Web site (she also penned a book by the same title), makes her fiction debut with the tepid tale of Delilah Darling, a woman on the cusp of 30 who loses her job and sleeps with her heinous former boss in an entanglement that's the 20th notch on her headboard. It's a painful realization, as she'd just read in the New York Post, that the average person has 10.5 partners in their lifetime. Fearing she has more than reached her quota, Delilah takes off on a cross-country trip, determined to find 'the one' among the 20 of her former lovers. But she soon discovers that the men of her romantic past — an inmate, a rehab patient, a dog-obsessed Amway salesman and a Muppeteer among them — aren't exactly life-partner material. Clever chapter breaks that feature maps and voice-mail transcripts are fun additions, but the story — hobbled by limp humor, razor-thin characters and phoned-in prose — takes too long to find its inevitably happy ending. (July)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Review:

"Is Delilah doomed to a life of celibacy?....The result is absolutely hilarious." Library Journal

Review:

"Saucy chick-lit." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"The lively pace and outlandish story will keep readers hooked, but don't skip the footnotes." Booklist

Synopsis:

In this smart, hilarious novel, a 29-year-old Manhattanite who's obsessed with her "number" — she's vowed not to have sex with more than 20 men — learns how many men it takes to find true love.

Synopsis:

“Bosnak writes with a charming and original voice.”
—Chicago Sun-Times

A smart and bubbly romp, soon to be a major Hollywood motion picture starring Anna Faris, Chris Evans, Zachary Quinto, and Andy Samberg, Whats Your Number? by Karyn Bosnak asks—and answers—the provocative question, how many men are too many? When Delilah Darling exceeds her magic number of twenty ex-lovers without finding “Mr. Right,” she sets out on a hilarious road trip to discover what went wrong. Originally published as 20 Times a Lady, Bosnaks Whats Your Number? has got the number of chick lit romantic comedy fans who are looking for a sassy read with true wit as well as brains.

Linda Hinckley, April 6, 2007 (view all comments by Linda Hinckley)
Delilah realizes she had reached her limit of the number of man she wanted to sleep with. She does not want to go over her limit of 20 man. Delilah goes on the road trip to find the man and to see which one is the right one and if things will work out with one of the man. Will thing work out with one of the 20 man?

This author will have you laughing the whole time as you are reading this book. I felt like I was on the road trip with her and she was actually talking to me. I loved this book and I am looking forward to reading more books by this author. I highly recommend this book. If you love to laugh and feel like you are with the author you will love this book.

Rachael, September 27, 2006 (view all comments by Rachael)
I absolutely LOVED this book. Delilah Darling has slept with her 20th man and rather then adding another number to her headboard she decides to track down all her ex boyfriends and try to make it work with one of them. Delilah goes on a roadtrip across the US to rekindle a relationship with one of the 20 men. Will she find love again or will Delilah come home manless? Read this exciting book to find out!
