Four blind dates in five days. I can't believe I agreed to this.
Actually, I can. That’s what I do. I agree to things I don’t want to do to make other people happy. In this case, my four best friends. They’re worried about me and if going on a few dates will make them happy, then I’ll do it. How bad could they be?
I probably shouldn’t have asked that.
I’m starting to seriously wonder if my friends know me at all. Each pick is worse than the last, and none of them compare to my former fiancé. But then I guess maybe that’s the point. Someone new to help me forget the old.
To help me move on.
Except I don’t need a man to prove that I’ve moved on. Why can’t my friends understand that? And why does the same beautiful stranger keep saving me from these awful encounters? The universe seems to be throwing him into my path, and the more time I spend with him the more I wish that he was one of the dates.
There’s one more date left and I can’t help but wonder if he’ll pop up again. How many chance encounters can two people have? Pittsburgh is a big city so the chances are slim.
I've been a big Terri Osburn fan since I found her work years ago(maybe 3? 4?) and I was so happy to see her return from her sabbatical. The wait was so worth it!
This was a mix of a romantic comedy and women's fiction and I've enjoyed every word of it. Becca has wonderful friends who wish to see her happy. Unfortunately for her at the moment that translates to her agreeing to 4 blind dates, each with a guy chosen by one of her friends. From the title and the blurb you can imagine that these dates are disastrous! The only good thing is the good Samaritan that keeps rescuing her and amazingly and also embarrassingly seeing all the mishaps. To make everything even more complicated Becca is going through a tough period at work. Her boss is going through a health scare and Becca is covering all the work.
This is the story of a woman going through the motions and finally learning that it's ok not to be ok, to quote the author. I'm not saying that everything is magically made better at the end, but I can see that Becca is working through her problems, and not only that, she's also dating the guy who keeps saving her which was wonderful.
I can't wait to see how the friends's stories will go, since all 4 of them are also single and I really liked all of them. I'm also curious to see if Ms Osburn will keep updating us of Becca and Jacob's relationship. To sum it up: I loved the story, I cried my eyes out and I can't wait for more!
