After a nasty breakup, Tally Gladstone has no interest in anything serious. But she’s dipped her wary toe back into dating with a few blind dates—all bad…or worse. The only good thing to come out of it is a sizable following on social media. Her latest date is doomed from the get-go—he isn’t even straight. But at least he knows someone who meets her every very exacting wish
American-in-London Brent O’Neill is everything she wants—on paper. He’s hot, sexy and emotionally off-limits. Tally can play all she likes without getting burned. He’s so good in bed he’s addictive. But her millions of social media followers want disaster, not boring-ever-after. They might get their way yet—how is she going to walk away before her heart is in tatters?
Thoughts: Cosmo Red-Hot Reads does it again! What a fantastically HOT, quick, funny and touching story about a blind date turned hook-up turned love story!!
This was a first read for me of a Heidi Rice book but I had a feeling I would LOVE her when she referred to Channing Tatum and Chris Hemsworth in her ‘Dear Reader’ opening to 10 Rules to Sex Up a Blind Date. I can assure you she did NOT disappoint and I will be seeking out more of her work ASAP! I enjoyed her use of everyday vernacular and the references to topics that are relevant today. I immediately clicked with Tally. Loved all her snarky wounded dialogue and yet desperateness was coming from her in waves. Ms Rice made me root for Tally and the hopes that she would find a way to forgive herself!
And HOLY HOT alpha-hole, Brent, who’s not really an alpha-hole, he’s just protecting his own battered and tattered heart. Good thing he saw past the walls that Tally has spent 2 years building… and the means he goes through to make her see the real her and the real him will melt your heart… and your panties!
Best lines: “Hot,” Tally qualified quickly. “I’d like him hot.” If she was going to avail Sam of his services, she might as well get the deluxe package. “That would be my second stipulation. After straight.” She didn’t give a sh*t if that made her sound shallow. This was Project Get Laid, not Project Get a Life Partner.
