Give it 2.5 stars (really would like half stars.)I really wanted to like it, but it was ok/good. It felt forced, like something shoved into a box way too small for it. The characters didn't come across as completely developed. Maybe I would've liked the best friend given more time and information, as it is she's just pushy and annoying. The heroine, Mel, hasn't been out on a date in a while. So the blind date she goes on and they have a hotel room reserved before they even meet? Due to the potential I felt from this I'll probably try the next book in the series as it is longer.
