Book Blind Date #46
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
His Secrets Can Destroy Her
From the moment J**** laid eyes on sexy, mysterious S**** D***, she was in love. Their desire ignited a passionate affair, and within weeks, S**** had slipped a ring on her finger. It seemed her every fantasy was coming true . . . until her new husband disappeared without a trace. Now, two years and one broken heart later, J**** is shocked by the hospital calls: S**** has been found . . . at a crime scene with no memory of how he got there.
Her Love Can Save Him
S**** can't remember the blue-eyed angel at his bedside—or who he even is—but he knows something isn't right. His hearing is razor sharp, his physical strength incredible, and the urge to protect J**** overwhelming. For powerful enemies are hunting him, and J**** is the key to discovering why. As S**** struggles to unravel his past, dangerous new truths come to light. Can he protect the only woman he's ever loved? And can J**** trust a man she thought she knew—one who carries such a deadly secret?
Blind Date #2
Sassy, smart, and sexy, former supermodel-turned-tech guru R*** R**** has it all—looks, money, confidence and freedom. Her life is a whirlwind of fast cars and fleeting affairs—and she likes it that way. With a past like R***’s, forever isn’t part of her vocabulary. So when studly Renegade stuntman W** L****** wants to take their friendship to the next level, she’s all out.
Raised a simple country-boy, W** knows the brazen R**** isn’t his type. But after spending time with her, he discovers she’s everything he’s ever wanted in a woman. To win her wild rebel heart, he’ll have to prove he sees behind her smokescreen to all the goodness she tries to hide. Then it’s just a matter of crushing her fears, shattering her barriers, and convincing her that loving him is everything she’s been missing in her life, too.
