Dating in the Dark (Dating Trilogy Book 1) by Alexandria Bishop
Call center girl by day and…this is the part where I say I do something super mysterious and exotic by night. Yeah not so much.
With the big 3-0 looming its ugly head around the corner my best friend and my married and very pregnant sister have decided that I need a life. One that includes the opposite sex. Or else continue on, and become the old spinster they say I am.
It was all in jest until they set me up with a blind date. Literally.
Speed dating. In the dark. With a stranger. What were they thinking?
Fifteen minutes, that’s all you get to find the man of your dreams. Oh yeah, that’ll go over about as well as a nun in a strip club.
Playing along might not be so bad. Besides, what’s the worst that could happen? It’s not like I’ll actually end up falling in love.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I wasn’t sure what to think about this story to begin with. The blurb kinda jumped out at me, since it sounded unlike anything else I’ve read recently. It started out a little slow, introducing the main characters, their lives, relationships, etc.
Tinley is an average woman. She’s almost 30, working at a job that she hates, living with her roommate, waiting for her life to start. Then her sister sets her up on a speed dating thing, and things get a little crazy!
This book goes from zero to POW! The heat level jumped before I really even realized what was going on. I don’t want to spoil any surprises, but I’ve gotta say, I was totally blown away. I didn’t see it coming, never would have guessed what happened!
I enjoyed this book, as it was very interesting, and I laughed more times than I can count. However, be aware, this is a cliff hanger! The story is not complete at the end of the book. As much as I dislike cliff hangers, I would still recommend this book. It’s different, funny, and HOT! I’m looking forward to the next book, so I can see what happens to Tinley!
