    The Perfect Date by Evelyn Lozado and Holly Lorincz is far from perfect. Angel Gomez is a single mom, finishing nursing school while juggling a practicum, a part time job bar-tending and raising her son; she doesn’t have time for romantic relationships. The “Duke” is a pitcher for the Bronx Bolts but lately he’s been getting more attention for his behavior off the field than on. They meet at the clinic and at the club Angel works at where Duke tries to convince Angel to pretend to be his girlfriend to throw the paparazzi off of why he was actually at the medical clinic. I thought this would be a cute, light-hearted romance, but if was closer to the opposite. Duke likes Angel because she sees the real him, unlike other girls who only want him for the fact he’s a pitcher and has a lot of money. Angel also seemed determined to call Duke out for his behavior; at least for part of the book. As this story continued, the reader is exposed to rude characters who were either mean or angry much of the time. Then there is the male doctor at the clinic where Angel had her practicum who believed it was okay to inappropriately touch the nursing students. There were a number of misogynistic attitudes with some of the male characters or and female characters who did not care who they were hurting. They may have thought it was fun and endearing banter, but this reader found it a bit offensive. The epilogue was a definite redeeming moment in this dramatic and difficult story. Overall, despite the problems and drama, I enjoyed reading The Perfect Date. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

  • Did not finish - hated the two main characters

    DNF at 32% Kudos to Angelica who perfectly captured my feelings about the book, here, glad to see I didn't miss anything by giving up part way. Angel Gomez is a single mom, nurse, part-time bartender studying to get a better life for herself and her son who suffers from asthma. Caleb Lewis is a baseball player nursing an ankle injury following a shooting, seeking medical assistance on the down-low. I didn't like either character, it all seemed like a cookie-cutter single-mom meets famous sports star, right down to the mom being a nurse (have you got the idea? She's called Angel and she's a nurse - ie perfect, nurturing, above all other women) working two jobs and having a sick kid (do all nurses have sick kids, is it like a prerequisite?). Duke on the other hand allegedly has a bad reputation but honestly he doesn't seem to do anything to deserve it. There's a lot of casual misogyny but also women putting women down. When Angel is supposed to be studying for her final exams (or something) but is clearly wavering towards going to a party thrown by a reality TV star (who just happens to send her a fancy dress and shoes to wear so she doesn't feel out of place) instead (I didn't stick around to see what she was going to do about her sick kid) I decided to bail. Not the sweet, charming romance I was hoping for. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
