  • What's not to like?

    What’s not to like? This book has it all: a young, ambitious single mother who will work herself to the bone to take care of her child, an athlete who is used to the easy life but has to face some tough times and make some hard choices, some shady characters, including a doctor, and an adorable child with life-threatening asthma. Throw in some fun when Angel and The Duke pretend to be in a relationship and you have the perfect book – The Perfect Date! The Perfect Date moves along quickly, is easy to read, with people you want to know more about. It’s a feel good book and refreshing in the diversity of its characters and locations. Thanks to St. Martin’s Press via NetGalley for an advance copy in exchange for my honest review. Great read that I recommend.

  • Gritty, realistic opposites-attract romance

    Angel and Duke run in wildly different circles; he's a famous professional baseball player and she's struggling each day to provide for her son while she attends nursing school. After they cross paths a couple times, Duke's image needs a bit of wholesome credibility so he asks Angel to be his fake girlfriend whenever they're in public together. As they get to know each other, the differences in their lifestyles and circle of friends become nearly-insurmountable obstacles. The writing style is unique in a romance book in that we're not directed to see each main character as always doing the right thing or even acting reasonably. Angel is constantly having to rein in her temper, while Duke shows a surprisingly pouty side and occasional lack of backbone. There's also an intriguing storyline running throughout that adds betrayal, mystery, and a bit of a crime drama element. The HEA expertly wraps all the assorted narrative threads nicely. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

  • Rate this with a Huge R for Raunchy!

    This could have been a great piece of Women's Fiction. Romance, Political Commentary, Serious Social Hype, Sexism in the Workplace, and being a POC and poor. That part of the story was great. I did not need to have eroticism, foul language, and drugs in every chapter. I would not have requested this book had I known how raunchy it was. I found it neither 'heartwarming' nor 'fun'. I received this ARC book for free from Net Galley and this is my honest review.

    Thanks for your feedback!
