Just Three Dates Tour and Giveaway


NEW RELEASE...
When their mothers become matchmakers, entangling them in a series of dates with each other, Karen and Mark must each decide whether to entertain the idea of a “marriage of convenience,” or to hold out for an increasingly unlikely marriage based on love. 

Since breaking with her last boyfriend, Karen has refused to trust any man her age. For the past three years, she has not dated the same one twice, and only one in ten has received even a goodnight kiss as she turned him away. Karen is an artist. She follows her feelings, lives in a cluttered loft, and gushes over vivid sunsets.

Mark still dreams about his almost-fiancée, and his date book has been empty since he threw her out a week before he’d planned to ask for her hand. His friends call him the “Ice Man,” since he seldom smiles, especially at a woman. A math professor at the College, logic guides his behavior, he loves order, and an elegant proof is a thing of beauty.

Both Karen and Mark have all but abandoned hope of ever falling in love, and, left on their own, these opposites would never attract. So, their mothers become matchmakers, entangling them in a series of dates by extracting promises that Karen and Mark will go out together three times, suggesting that, in the absence of love, a “marriage of convenience” is a live option.

If you enjoy heartwarming stories based on true-to-life behaviors, with complicated relationships and a less-than-certain outcome, this book is for you.

MY REVIEW

Mark and Karen’s mothers were concerned for them. Both mothers couldn’t stand the thought of their grown child not getting married and having children of their own. Mark and Karen were tired of their mothers badgering them about their lack of dating. It took some persuasion, but each agree to go on three dates together. Both mothers were sure that would be enough for Mark and Karen to fall in love. But is it?

I was captivated from the start, wondering if three dates would be enough for two strangers to fall in love. By the end though, I was emotionally drained. Mark and Karen had both been hurt before and couldn’t help but bring that baggage into the relationship. This caused them both to continually second guess each other’s feelings and motives. It made me want to knock their heads together for them to see that they were perfect for each other. This author has a knack for writing stories that draw every emotion possible from the characters in his stories, as well as the readers.
