Thank you to Netgalley and HarperCollins UK/HQ Digital for The Dating Game in exchange for an honest review.
Although this is a sequel (and I haven’t read Book 1), The Dating Game reads fine as a standalone.
I really enjoyed The Dating Game. It is a heart-warming, sexy, romantic tale full of suspense and miscommunication between couples.
Firstly, we have the agreement between Sarah and David, which makes for an excellent storyline, and their chemistry makes for an interesting read. Sarah agrees to model for David as a portrait model and in return, he will provide her with dating advice since her current success rate is dismal. She has set a goal of keeping a love interest for 3 weeks and 1 day in an effort to break the dating curse she feels she has.
Sarah and David are attracted to each other from the beginning, but Sarah won’t act on it because she thinks that Lane might still have an interest in David and she doesn’t want to break the girl code with one of her best friends. However, David doesn’t care about Lane, and is relatively indifferent to Sarah’s desire to keep their arrangement secret. Eventually, Sarah and David do what people do in romances and unwillingly fall in love.
Sarah feels guilty about avoiding Lane and Erica and decides to come clean about what she’s been doing. Once this is done, she and David agree that he will be the person to break her curse and they will date for 3 weeks and 1 day. They do this with the clear understanding that they are secretly in love with one another. To makes matters worse, David has serious personal relationship baggage and, at the end of the best 3 weeks and 1 day contract ever, he leaves Sarah! So frustrating! What will happen next?
This is an easy addictive read and I really enjoyed it. Now, I need to find the first book in the series and see exactly what went down between Adam (Sarah’s brother) and Lane.
This book deserves
