Review! Blonde Date By Sarina Bowen

A blind date. A nervous sorority girl. A mean-spirited fraternity prank. What could possibly go wrong?

As a sorority pledge, there are commandments that Katie Vickery must live by. One: thou shalt not show up for the party without a date. Two: the guy shall be an athlete, preferably an upperclassman.

Unfortunately, Katie just broke up with her jerkface football player boyfriend. Even worse, her last encounter with him resulted in utter humiliation. She’d rather hide under the bed than attend a party where he'll be.

Yet staying home would mean letting him win.

Enjoying herself tonight was out of the question. She could only hope to get through the evening without her blind date noticing that he was spending the evening with a crazy person.

Andrew Baschnagel is living proof that nice guys don’t finish first. He’s had his eye on Katie since the moment her long legs waltzed into his art history class. So when her roommate sets Andy up to be Katie’s date, he’d be crazy to say no. Unfortunately, he doesn’t have a lot of practice with either girls or parties. Yet.

BLONDE DATE is a 23,000 word novella covering a four hour span of Katie & Andy's night. ALSO INCLUDED: a sneak preview of the third novel in the Ivy Years series, THE UNDERSTATEMENT OF THE YEAR.

The Blonde Date was a quick and cute look into the date that Scarlet had set up for her roommate Katie and her old friend from High school, Andrew.  I really loved Andrew’s character; too many times the athlete is this cocky self-assured player who sleeps with anything that is female.  Andrew was the complete opposite; in fact he has had two umm reasons to doubt his sexiness.  And no I am not going to tell you what, trust me you will laugh when you read it.  Katie is dealing with some backlash of her own, I wish she would have walked right up to the person who hurt her and kneed him in the balls, because he deserves that and so much more. 

The Blonde Date proves that you shouldn’t always judge a book by it’s cover.  Sometimes you will find the sweetest, nicest, book that will be just perfect for you under the cover of a book you might have normally passed over if you hadn’t given it the chance you did to be just what you were looking for.   Sarina Bowen really knows how to suck her readers in, and while this was a novella, I loved it as much as the other books in this series.
