Hey y’all! Thanks for stopping by today. You’re going to find my review for the book The First Date by Zara Stoneley.
Firstly though, you’ll find the description given by NetGalley, then my review and star rating.
*Disclaimer – I received a copy of this ebook for free from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
Description from NetGalley :
After breaking up with her childhood sweetheart, clueless dater Rosie has found herself in a boyfriend-drought. So when she finally swipes right on a guy who seems interested, she can’t wait to meet up IRL.
Until she’s left standing alone. In a bar. Ghosted.
Enter Noah. Confident, funny… and a serial first dater. Offering to give Rosie a crash course in seduction, this could be just what she needs. Until her matchmaker turns out to be the best date she’s ever had – and Rosie wonders if she wants the fake dates to be the real ones after all…
My Review :
Okay, I had really high hopes for this book. When I first started reading, I could tell right off the bat what course the book would take.
Unfortunately, I was correct. (I desperately wanted to be wrong.)
The story, and Rosie and Noah are completely enjoyable. But Rosie’s thoughts constantly revolving around her father was very distracting to me.
I understand how certain relationships can play into our relationships with others – I get that, really – I do. But, at one point I was just over it.
I did appreciate how Rosie grew up into herself, but I was bored about halfway through.
