Both Amerise and John are unpleasantly surprised upon meeting each other for their blind date. They both feel that they have nothing in common and they can't understand why their friends put them together. One disaster after the other occurs on their date, so they decide to go their own separate ways. Then fate intervenes and these two actually lower their guards and get to know each other.
I liked both of these characters. Their hesitancy and initial awkwardness with each other was honest and rang true. I understood their motivations and actions. The chemistry was good and there were some laugh out loud situations. As the night wore on, it became apparent why these two were set up on a date. But most importantly, I understood why they began to open up to each other.
The beauty of this tale is its simplicity. There are no gimmicks here. It is just two lonely people taking a chance on one another. I adored this little slice of life and I look forward to others in this new, sweet series.
John and Amerise are on blind date, arranged by a mutual friend. Things go from bad to worse, especially when their disastrous dinner date is interrupted by a blackout on one of the hottest nights of the year. With the city packing the streets and the sweltering temperatures rising, John and Amerise reconnect and realize they have far more in common than they originally thought.
The author does a realistic job of taking them from strained animosity to acceptance and finally romantic interest. Ms. Kennedy has a unique voice, and tells a sweet tale that leaves the reader with a contented sigh at the end. A beautiful story with believable and well-defined characters!
