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.

Excerpt 3

Quin awoke feeling rested and alert, and when he looked down at Layla's peaceful aura, his mood soared. She was well and safe and in his arms, and he couldn’t ask for more out of life than what he held at that moment.
He closed his eyes and magically started a pot of coffee and breakfast. Then he tightened his hug and nuzzled her hair. “Good morning, angel.”
“Yes...” she purred, stretching against him, and a second later he was on his back, forced into the position by her surprisingly strong palms. She straddled his waist and flashed a bright smile. Then her lips were on his and her tongue was in mouth, kissing deeply and hungrily.
A moan muffled in his throat as his hands drifted toward her on their own accord, but then an odd thump of his heart awoke his willpower, and he flexed his fingers, stretching away tingles as well as the urge to rip off her underwear. Instead, he worked one hand into her spirals while moving the other to her waist.

Blind Date # 1

In the nineties, A**** A*** and Z*** were the most beloved sitcom child stars in the world. Then they grew up and left Hollywood behind…

Whatever happened to A****?

She’s been wondering the same thing.

With her Hollywood dreams long gone, A***now has a nice, neat, uncomplicated life—until the day her perfect fiancĂ© needs to talk. Dumped, a little more than shattered, and totally confused, A*** turns to Z***, her best friend since forever, to help her pick up the pieces. He does it with a gift—a copy of Wreck This Journal. She can vent her frustrations, and sketch out a new plan. Z*** just hopes he’s part of it. Because he’s been in love with A*** his entire life.

When the journal falls into Z*** hands, he discovers A*** wants a new man. And fast. Nothing more than a hot distraction. Z*** has a strategy, too. He’s going to be that man. It’s his last chance. A*** might be out to shake up her life, but Z*** out to reinvent it. Now, all he has to do is convince A*** that life can go as planned.


Blind Date #2 

G*** is locked behind the fortified walls of McHugh Keep, captive of a cruel laird who takes great pleasure in ruining her for any other man. Yet when B** storms the gates on a mission of clan warfare, G** finds that her spirit is bent but not broken. Still, her path toward freedom remains uncertain. Unable to bear the shame of returning to a family that believes her dead or to abandon others at the keep to an imposing new laird, G** opts for the peaceful life of an abbess. But B*** rugged sensuality stirs something deep inside her that longs to be awakened by his patient, gentle caress—something warm, wicked, and tempting.

B***seizes his enemy’s keep, unprepared for the brooding and reclusive woman who captures his heart. He’s enchanted by her fierce determination, her unusual beauty, and her quiet, unfailing strength. But wooing her will take more than a seasoned seducer’s skill. For loving G***, he discovers, means giving her back the freedom that was stolen from her—even if it means losing her forever.
