Title: Three Blind Dates

Author: Meghan Quinn

Publication Date:  January 4, 2018

Synopsis
“Good Morning Malibu, it’s another beautiful day on the west coast! I’m Noely Clark, your host: and I’m in the market for love…”
 

When the publicity team of the new local restaurant, Going in Blind, began their search for a hot, local celebrity to promote the wildly popular eatery, they couldn’t have found a better person than me.

Outgoing? Check.
Single? Check.
Open to finding love? Check.

I signed up immediately.

A hopeless romantic with an exceedingly demanding schedule, I’ve found it impossible to find the man of my dreams—so Going in Blind seems too good to be true! That’s until they start setting me up on dates—three very different, very attractive, very distinct blind dates—and only one thing is for certain . . .

I’m in big trouble.

Good Morning Malibu,
I’m Noely Clark, and I have a choice to make.
The question is who will I choose; the suit, the rebel, or the jock.
Christina’s 5 Star Review

It seems that with every new release by Quinn I say to myself, “this is her best one yet!” Yet she still manages to best herself, again and again. Well, I’m pretty darned sure this is her best one yet. Until, well…

I have to be careful here because it would be very easy to spoil the story and I don’t want to do that. This is the first book in a new series and subsequent books feature the two remaining men Noely didn’t choose, so I don’t want to wreck the ending!

Noely is the popular, attractive co-host for Malibu’s morning show. She decides to try a new dating app with accompanying restaurant called Going In Blind, where you’re set up with the best match blind date and then you meet them at the restaurant; a safe, neutral place for a first date. Noely is matched up with three very different, yet all excellent, candidates: The Suit, The Rebel, and the The Jock.

I was hooked from the get go, like seriously. I loved Noely and how funny and candid she was. Her relationship with her co-host Dylan is hilarious and her antics made her immediately relatable. And each of her dates? Yes, please. Let’s just say Quinn was able to create three different heroes each significantly distinct from the others. All three are book boyfriend worthy, and there were sparks flying one each of Noely’s dates.

I was so conflicted over who I wanted Noely to end up with as they each had their own special qualities and brand of hotness. There were two in particular I was rooting for and I was very happy with the result. The chemistry between the two was off the charts, making them one of my favorite book couples.

The book is told from Noely’s POV right up until the end where we get her chosen beau’s perspective. We then get a great setup for the next book in the series and I CANNOT WAIT! I loved each of these characters so much and I really hope Noely (and her match) make at least a cameo in the next book. I’m still not ready to let go.

Yes, the story is a 21st century “You’ve Got Mail”, so if you like romcoms like that, you will LOVE this book. I have never seen it *ducks and hides* and I’m not a fan of romcom films, but if there was a movie made of this book? I’d watch it. Quinn is my go to woman for love and laughs and it is because of stories like Three Blind Dates. One-click this book, it’s hot, hilarious, and heartwarming.The perfect mix of everything I know I’m looking for in a book!

Excerpt

NOELY

“Just state my name?”

“Yeah. Gives us a quick rundown on who you are, what you do, your interests, and what you’re looking for in a man.”

I nod and clear my throat. Sitting tall, my hands resting in my lap, I speak directly into the camera . . .

“Hi, I’m Noely Clark, and I’m one of your Good Morning, Malibu hosts. As you know, I’m single and in the market for love. As a twenty-seven-year-old woman who has had her fair share of rotten relationships, hookups, and dates, I want to try something new. I want to be thrust into a program where my celebrity status isn’t the first thing someone knows about me, where I can be known for who I am as a person rather than how I’m represented on TV.”

“And who is the person you want to be known for?”

Tilting my head to the side, I purse my lips, thinking of my answer. “Just a regular girl who loves Tom Hanks, would do just about anything adventurous, and would rather be seen eating nachos at a hockey game than enjoying a chardonnay during a classic night at the opera.”

“And what are you looking for in a man?”

Taking a deep breath, I look straight into the camera. “Someone who will cuddle on my couch and watch a classic romcom with me. Someone who will challenge me. Someone who is respectful and courteous to others but also has no qualms about shouting at an official while pounding on the glass at a hockey game. We don’t have to be a perfect match, because when is that really the case? But I want our match to be close with a little bit of wiggle room for some give and take, because what’s love without a little bit of compromise, without being able to adapt to your partner and love what they love? It’s the people in our life who mold us, and I’m far from being molded completely.”
