About A Blind Date for the Marine
Blind dating for the digital age. What could go wrong?
When my best friend asks me to test his new dating app, I’m not sure it’s a good idea. After all, I’m moving out of the country in six months. What’s the point?
But he insists it’s just to help him out, so I give it a shot. Plus, the mystery of it is kind of fun. There are no photos until you’ve been talking for thirty days, so it’s all about the connection.
What I didn’t expect was to immediately hit it off with a bookish charmer on the app at the same time as someone pretty similar in real life. Two women? Why couldn’t this happen when I wasn’t about to leave?
Now that I thought about it, BookishDreamer from the app reminds me a lot of Claire from the real world… wouldn’t it be crazy if they were the same person?
Nah. What are the odds of that?
I LOVED this book. It has it all, great characters, a fun plot line, comedy and the romance. Such a great book. And it has loved characters who were also in A Match for the Marine.
Claire is the main female lead of this one. She’s Amy’s friend and assistant, so when Amy asks her to sign up for the new dating up, of course she agrees. I Claire’s character. She’s the kind of girl I know I’d be friends with. She’s a closet author who works as an assistant and in a bookstore on the weekend.
Mateo is the male lead. He’s best friends with Amy’s fiancé, Dex. Mateo is asked by Dex to sign up for the dating app to check for bugs. He’s a good guy, and not sure he wants to sign up, because he knows he’ll be moving from the country soon. But, he does it for Dex.
Of course these two become each other’s match on the dating app. And what ensues is really funny. I loved their conversations. They get to know each other and flirt in a way they wouldn’t be able to in real life. It was perfect!
I’m not going to give any spoilers. Just know that if you like a clean rom-com, this book is for you!
I was sent an e-copy of A Blind Date for the Marine as a gift from the author. All opinions are my own.
