The first Friday Reads post of the year *rubs hands*. I’ve been reading Tommy’s Blind Date by Anne Brooke, not because I longed to read it, I didn’t even know what it was about – though the title says it all, doesn’t it? No, I read it because those rubber ducks glare at me every time I look at my library. I’m not sorry I read it, though.
Opening the book, I don’t know what my expectations were but it made me smile. A couple of pages in Tommy is on a blind date with the much younger, much hornier, and much drunker Hector and I just love it when Tommy ‘queens it up for Britan’.
This is not a story filled with surprises, you pretty much knows what’s going to happen all along, but it didn’t bother me. It’s short, it’s steamy, funny at places, and a good friends to lovers read. Definitely, worth the glaring ducks.
Thirty-two year old Tommy Godolphin has been on a series of blind dates, as he doesn’t want to be single any more. However, none of them really hits the spot and the latest one has proved a complete, if amusing, disaster.
When he recounts what happened to his best friend, Jacob, he expects Jacob to laugh with him as usual, but this time he doesn’t. Instead, Jacob challenges Tommy to go out on a blind date with him, to see what, if anything, he might be doing wrong. If Tommy accepts, how will their friendship survive?
