Book Blind Date #16
Book Blind Date is something that Danielle from Book Whore Blog and I decided to start after seeing a Facebook post on the Lawrence Public Library Page about a book blind date. This really got us thinking, what if the only thing you new about a book was what the story was about? No character names, no pretty covers to suck you in.
Here's how it works, you know the old saying never judge a book by its cover? Well you won't be able to, for this meme you are going to decide which book you would go on a "date" with based on the synopsis. Names and identifying phrases are removed just to make things fair. The only rule is: No Googling the synopsis, you have to pick a "date" based on what you read below.
Last Week's Blind Dates:
Blind Date #1
ALL FEAR THE ENEMY OF OLD
Driven by his insatiable need for revenge, L****, the Lore’s most ruthless vampire, plots to seize the Horde’s crown by offering up the soul of his lovely new captive, E**** P****. Yet the young human soon tempts him beyond reason.
A DEADLY FORCE DWELLS WITHIN HER
E**** P****’s life was a living hell—even before an evil immortal abducted her. Though he plans to sacrifice her, the vampire seems to ache for her touch, showering her with sexual pleasure. In a bid to save her soul, she surrenders her body, while vowing to protect her heart.
CENTURIES OF COLD INDIFFERENCE SHATTERED
In one month, L**** must choose between a millennia-old blood vendetta and his irresistible prisoner. Will he succumb to the miseries of his past . . . or risk everything for a future with her?
Blind Date #2
She's either headed for jail...or for the best sex of her life.
T**** J**** has been crushing on sexy firefighter E**** R****, her best friend’s brother, since her sixteenth birthday. She knows acting on her attraction will ruin their friendship, but she can’t fight the temptation of his sweat-slicked skin as he works out. Every hot-blooded woman loves to drool over a sexy piece of man flesh, but watching one from the shadows of your porch when he has no idea you’re spying on him? Totally illegal.
For years E**** has watched men go in and out of T****’s life, but how’s a guy supposed to put the moves on his kid sister’s best friend without looking like a perv? But when T**** lets out an ear-piercing scream from her front yard, E**** drops everything to rush to her aid. And finds out that the woman of his dreams has been sneaking a peek at his workouts…
