Open to finding love? Check.
I signed up immediately.
A hopeless romantic with an exceedingly demanding schedule, I’ve found it impossible to find the man of my dreams—so Going in Blind seems too good to be true! That’s until they start setting me up on dates—three very different, very attractive, very distinct blind dates—and only one thing is for certain . . .
I’m in big trouble.
Three Blind Dates was a fun, sexy, humorous, and highly entertaining standalone romantic comedy, and I absolutely loved it! Meghan Quinn is an extremely talented author, and she never ceases to blow me away with her amazing writing style and the storylines and characters she creates. The concept for Three Blind Dates was incredibly unique and I truly enjoyed reading every single page. Ms. Quinn’s signature humor and wit were in full supply, and there were plenty of laugh-out-loud moments throughout, especially between Noely and her best friend, Dylan. Three Blind Dates was an excellent start to the Dating by Numbers series, and I would highly recommend it!
The characters in this book were wonderful, and you couldn’t help but fall in love with them. Noely was funny, quirky, relatable, and I immediately liked her. I really enjoyed her personality and how her story progressed. The author did an amazing job of making the reader really guess until almost the very end who Noely would choose: The Suit, The Rebel, or The Jock. I thought for sure I knew who Noely would pick, but it really surprised me in the end, and I was very happy with her decision. The Suit, The Rebel, and The Jock were all great characters and I enjoyed their personalities and the chemistry they each had with Noely. They all had their own pros and cons, but I truly liked each and every one of them. It was kind of hard to decide who I hoped Noely would end up with because each of them were wonderful in different ways, and I certainly didn’t envy Noely in making that decision. There were plenty of twists and turns throughout that kept things interesting and the reader on their toes. I honestly don’t have anything negative to say about this book, other than it was a little slow at times and I wished there had been more of certain things here and there. It was just missing a little something extra that would have made it a full five star read for me. However, I truly loved Three Blind Dates, and I was extremely pleased with the conclusion to Noely’s story.
Three Blind Dates was a unique, sexy, humorous, and entertaining romantic comedy, and I immensely enjoyed it from start to finish. Meghan Quinn did a fantastic job with this book, and I was very happy with the outcome. Ms. Quinn is by far one of my top favorite contemporary romance authors, and her books are always funny, sexy, and utterly entertaining. I have read several of her books so far and have dearly loved each and every one of them. Meghan has made me a fan of her and her work for life, and I am so excited to read more amazing and hilarious novels from her, especially the rest of the Dating by Numbers series!
ARC received in exchange for an honest review.
“Just state my name?”
“Yeah. Gives us a quick rundown on who you are, what you do, your interests, and what you’re looking for in a man.”
I nod and clear my throat. Sitting tall, my hands resting in my lap, I speak directly into the camera . . .
“Hi, I’m Noely Clark, and I’m one of your Good Morning, Malibu hosts. As you know, I’m single and in the market for love. As a twenty-seven-year-old woman who has had her fair share of rotten relationships, hookups, and dates, I want to try something new. I want to be thrust into a program where my celebrity status isn’t the first thing someone knows about me, where I can be known for who I am as a person rather than how I’m represented on TV.”
“And who is the person you want to be known for?”
Tilting my head to the side, I purse my lips, thinking of my answer. “Just a regular girl who loves Tom Hanks, would do just about anything adventurous, and would rather be seen eating nachos at a hockey game than enjoying a chardonnay during a classic night at the opera.”
“And what are you looking for in a man?”
Taking a deep breath, I look straight into the camera. “Someone who will cuddle on my couch and watch a classic romcom with me. Someone who will challenge me. Someone who is respectful and courteous to others but also has no qualms about shouting at an official while pounding on the glass at a hockey game. We don’t have to be a perfect match, because when is that really the case? But I want our match to be close with a little bit of wiggle room for some give and take, because what’s love without a little bit of compromise, without being able to adapt to your partner and love what they love? It’s the people in our life who mold us, and I’m far from being molded completely.”
