Welcome to Collette’s Book Club: Happily Ever ♥ Books! As a Dating & Relationship Expert I have read tons of dating and relationship books on the market, in fact I’ve written one. I read books on how to attract my perfect partner and books about how to make it past the first date. Book after book were filled with what to do and what not to do, however most of the books I read over-promised and under-delivered.
So, that women and men could get the most out of reading books about love and romance, I decided to start the Happily Ever Book Club — a book club hosted by, Collette Gee (based in the U.S.A.), and Charlie Moore (based in the U.K.).
Who Should Join: If you are a woman or a man that loves to read fiction or non-fiction books about love, romance and personal development, join Collette’s Book Club: Happily Ever Books. If you’ve read books like The Rules, Pride & Prejudice, and The Alchemist, then this book club is for you. We are a supportive and fun community that loves to read, and gain insight and support from other like-minded individuals.
Every month Collette Gee and Co-host Charlie Moore choose a select reading. We read fiction and non-fiction books that focus on love, romance and personal development. Each member will read the select book on their own. We, then meet on the last Saturday of every month, in person (at a select locations), and or virtually via Facebook Live, to discuss the selected read. This gives everyone nearly a month to purchase and read the book!
Types Of Books We’ll Read:
Our focus is on books about love, dating, romance, and personal development. We will be reading both fictional books and non-fiction.

Dating & Relationship Book Club Questions:
Below are some questions to get the conversation started. However, as the Collette’s book club grows I would love for other members to come up with questions and topics. Whenever possible I hope to have the author, or another prominent voice on the subject, join the conversation.
- What do you think of the book’s title? How deep into the book did you get before you understood the relevance of the title? Did the title reflect the main themes of the book?
- Was this book for men or women; could either gender enjoy reading this book?
- What is the key message in the book? How did the message affect you directly and indirectly?
- Were there any rules in the book parallel to the way men and women operate today or were the messages more traditional?
- Did reading the book evoke any strong emotion in you? Cry? Laugh? Why? Was there one message in the book that resonated with you deeply?
