Four blind dates in five days. I can’t believe I agreed to this.
Actually, I can. That’s what I do. I agree to things I don’t want to do to make other people happy. In this case, my four best friends. They’re worried about me and if going on a few dates will make them happy, then I’ll do it. How bad could they be?
I probably shouldn’t have asked that.
I’m starting to seriously wonder if my friends know me at all. Each pick is worse than the last, and none of them compare to my former fiancé. But then I guess maybe that’s the point. Someone new to help me forget the old.
To help me move on.
Except I don’t need a man to prove that I’ve moved on. Why can’t my friends understand that? And why does the same beautiful stranger keep saving me from these awful encounters? The universe seems to be throwing him into my path, and the more time I spend with him the more I wish that he was one of the dates.
There’s one more date left and I can’t help but wonder if he’ll pop up again. How many chance encounters can two people have? Pittsburgh is a big city so the chances are slim.
But what if…?
First, want to make note that this review is going to be very short and sweet, I spent most of my weekend before this post dealing with vertigo and ended up in the E.R. so I hate not being able to give the full review this deserves, but must have it done in time for the post.
This started out really funny from the first blind date. And then that person who started showing up, and who was the “Not You Again” that the title refers to, well he was a beautiful stranger, and it was hard not to fall in love with him. Although there was a moment or two when he said or did some things to Becca, no matter how completely understandable it was of him to say or do those things, it made my opinion of him drop just a smidge.
Part of it though is that we didn’t know quite what had happened with Becca’s fiance Brian that we’d only heard bits and pieces about for most of the book, and so it was easy to wonder just what was keeping her out of the dating scene. What could Brian have done to make her that way? When I found out though, it was very understandable. And I liked the way what happened with Brian was kind of woven into Becca’s relationship with her boss. I also really liked Becca’s friends, and it was interesting to see why they chose the blind dates they did for her. It actually made me think that was probably how some people used to choose my blind dates, and why I quit letting people do that really quickly.
In the end it all tied up perfectly, and I am glad to have read this. I think this might be part of a stand-alone series, and I am hoping we get to find out how her friends will deal with their own singledom status. I also kind of want to know more about the guy Becca worked with that her boss would not let get more face-time with the customers. I feel there must be more of a story there, and I’d like to hear it.
