I’m not too proud to admit that finding Mr. Right involves swiping right. Right? Welcome to dating in avocado toastland.
Here I am, on my first blind date, ever, courtesy of a smartphone app and my two annoying best friends.
So what is Chris “Fletch” Fletcher doing, walking across the room, looking at his phone like he’s pattern matching a picture to find a real person he’s never met before?
The guy I drop-kicked in seventh grade cannot be my blind date. The guy who earned me this infernal nickname.
It was bad enough that last month all my old kickboxing training came in handy when a disgruntled noncustodial dad invaded my preschool class and tried to take one of my kids without permission.
That ended with news coverage of the closed-circuit video that parents saw in real time as I beat him up and pinned his neck to the ground while waiting for police to respond.
We won’t mention the part where I thrust my arm into the air in a power stance and, uh…
Hey. HEY! Don’t judge me. I protected those kids. And the kid most in danger was Fletch’s nephew.
The same Fletch who just now noticed me sitting here.
Being noticed is bad.
Being his dating app match is even worse.
Because no matter how hard I’ve tried to avoid him since high school, every time I see him I have the same reaction.
I wish I’d never kicked him.
I wish, instead, that I’d let him kiss me.
Which it looks like he’s trying to do.
Right now.---More from New York Times bestselling author Julia Kent as Fiona “Feisty” Gaskill gets her chance at love - drop-kick included.
I was prepared to laugh my butt off as I did with the others in this series as soon as I’d read the excerpt. I’ve always loved Feisty’s character in the story, but I see that Perky is really the one who totally cracks me up and connects all the characters in such a hilarious way. That said, Feisty, or Fiona as she prefers to be called, still had a very sweet and perfect romance in this book. It was impossible not to love Chris, or Fletch, as he was often called.
Once again the author brought all the awesome banter that makes me love her characters and stories. And not only that, but there was the part where they were staying in a cabin and they had to make a urine perimeter to keep the bears away. Gah, I’m still giggling about that! Another thing I love is how perfectly the author can write such hilarious double entendres into the banter between not only the main characters, but even the side characters and the best friends themselves.
Lots of laughing again, a very quick read, and a bit of a surprise at the end with learning of a fourth book in this series to come!
The urine perimeter concept is new to me! I wonder if a spray bottle of fox piss like I once bought on Amazon to (probably unsuccessfully) keep away vermin would work just as well! I think if I were a bear I just wouldn’t care….
They said it has to be a male human’s urine. But I didn’t google for the truth. 🙂
