Blind Date # 8

This is a brand new meme for those all to boring Monday's. Book Blind Date is inspired by a Facebook post Adria from Adria's Romance Reviews and Danielle at Book Whore Blog saw on Lawrence Public Library Page about a book blind date. This really got us thinking, what if the only thing you knew about a book was what the story was about? No character names, no pretty covers to suck you in. 

Here's how it works, you know the old saying never judge a book by its cover? Well you won't be able to, for this meme you are going to decide which book you would go on a "date" with based on the synopsis. Names are removed just in case you have heard about these telltale heroines. 

Blind Date # 1

M*** is the perfect heir to his family’s vast commercial empire. Calm and exacting, he never lets himself go, not even during sex. Until a mysterious stranger’s wild seduction and impromptu striptease has him rethinking the benefits of losing some of his legendary control.
V**** is an oil driller, like her father was—before he was fired on a trumped-up charge of sabotage. Disguised as “S***”, she seduces Michael to gain access to his apartment and steal some files. Vanny wants payback for her father. What “S***” gets is a night of no-holds-barred sex and the personal satisfaction of making M**** lose control.
When M**** arrives to inspect V*** oil rig, she doesn’t know what worries her more—that he’ll recognize her or that he won’t. Some real sabotage in the form of a bomb onboard has M**** soon discovering that his sullen young tour guide is also his mysterious, seductive S***. So he offers her another job—as his mistress.

Blind Date #2

“I’m not naive. I know I don’t get the happily ever after. My knight in shining armor took the highway detour around this god forsaken shit hole. I’ve made peace with that. That doesn’t mean I’m going to lay down like a doormat and let every cocky prick in the trailer park have his way with me.”
C*** lives a depressing life in a small trailer park in Eddington, Georgia, with her mother and abusive boyfriend J***. She works hard to barely make ends meet. But everything changes when T****, the lead singer in the band Damaged, walks into her diner. He tries to show her that there is more to life than the hand she has been dealt, but C***soon learns that being with T**** will come at a high price.
