Lauren is a single, divorced parent, who is grateful for everything she has. She owns a nice, little vintage clothing shop in FL and enjoys classical holiday films—namely It’s a Wonderful Life. She never asked for much, but her meddling mother thought she should have more—like a man. So she sets her up on a blind date with a successful entrepreneur, who was as arrogant as they come. Lauren didn’t need a man to complete her; she could complete herself. You go, girl!
On the blind date, she sees a public proposal go sour. Turns out the guy was someone she used to know back in high school. He was the likable nerd, like Shaggy from Scooby Doo. Lauren then realizes that Nate dodged a bullet when the girl turned him down.
I thought the character was witty and relatable, and Nate was such a nice guy—quiet, quirky, and so smart. I thought they would have a nice romance. Story started off good, but then it slows down dramatically. It kind of made me wonder when exactly does he kiss her. It’s still a decent read though.
My rating: 3.5 stars
