Description - Natural Selection by Bill Dare
'It is rare in the animal kingdom for males to fight to the death for a prize female. Most males know when they are beaten. There are signals that separate the dominant males from their weaker rivals. Those signals obviate the need to fight, and therefore the possibility of injury or death. Thus the weaker male has a chance to get out alive.' James has lived in the shadow of his best-friend Stefan since school when James was an ungainly yob and Stefan was the only third former smooth enough to have a girlfriend. Now, Stefan has it all: looks, money and a cool job. And James has a half share in a slew of bad game show ideas that have yet to see the light of day (Shark Survivor, Natural Selection, Pet's Win Owners; Whose Pants are these? Porn Idol...) But what James does have is Victoria, the girl of his dreams. Even if it's taken him 10 years to turn their platonic friendship into a relationship. Only James realises that all his work will be for nothing if the oh-so-perfect Stefan ever meets Victoria. For after a decade of watching Victoria's boyfriends in the hope of turning into her idea of a perfect mate, James knows one thing for certain. Victoria deserves better.
Better than him. And one day she'll know it too. So James does the unthinkable and engineers a meeting between his best friend and his best girl. And waits...A very, very funny and poignant debut novel from an award-winning comedy producer that asks such searing questions as: Is love just a biological instinct? Does the best man always win? And just why do women find Phil Mitchell sexy?
