I saw this fun meme and thought I would join in this week!
It's hosted by Adria @ Adria's Romance Reviews and Danielle @ Book Whore Blog. Basically the idea is that you post the blurb of 2 books without the covers and you star out the names (like this, C*****).
This means there are no pretty/sexy covers to draw you in!
And just decide which book you'd like to go on a 'date' with :)
Here are my 2:
Blind Date #1
Life threw E**** a curveball...
Her mother died in Iowa and E**** was left to fend for herself with an abusive and drunken father who couldn't care less about her well being. After years of heartache and pain she graduated from high school and moved to Florida to go to college with her best friend T******.
A new beginning...
That’s where she met J****. He was everything she didn’t need. He was a cocky, tattooed, and a beer drinking musclehead. He was the type of guy that she normally would have avoided given her circumstances but when he offers her a bed to sleep on she can't say no.
She never thought that she would discover they weren't much different from one another and that he had his own secrets and scars he didn’t want revealed to anyone...
Blind Date #2
Meeting J*** was like bad luck. Dangerous. Unpredictable. And better avoided. In his game, the stakes are high. But are they worth the risk?
B***** S******, a realtor in New York, finds forgetting is hard, but forgiving is harder. When the man she trusted, betrayed her, the only way to forget is to move on. B***** is determined to start a new life, until she meets him again: the green-eyed, sexy as sin, six foot two sex god. The man who played dirty. The man who played her.
Sexy, rich, and arrogant J*** M******* knows he has made mistakes. He could have any other woman, and yet it’s B***** he wants. When second chances collide with secrets and B**** is threatened by the past, J*** is determined to protect her. She accepts his help unwillingly because she needs him but she wants to play his game on her own terms. And she has no intention to forgive or let him back into her bed.
When the man she is supposed to hate is the one she should trust, will he conquer her…or lose her forever?
A woman who can’t forgive.A man who has made mistakes.Two lives that are about to cross again and more secrets laid bare.
