Note that on a Kindle, 'Blind Date' ends at @ 71%, followed by the first chapters of three other books: 'Everything's Better With Lisa', 'Everything's Better With Kimberly', and 'Cherishing the Goddess', PLUS, synopses for three other books. REALLY???
The premise is basically one of my life’s dreams: meeting and then falling for a cute single guy at a bookstore. In this case, Mike is a man who reads romance and he really knows his stuff. Jordyn’s in town for a job interview and so she has no real reason to say no to the invitation to lunch which is followed by another activity and then another. They are smitten kittens, that’s for sure.
For such a short novella, it manages to do a lot with exploring romance archetypes (Mike is a cinnamon roll but he had a rake period in college) and power dynamics. I didn’t fully understand the barrier in place regarding Mike's job. But I did enjoy seeing how it was resolved.

Mike and Jordan were such an adorable couple, everything they did, the way they talked to each other. Jordan was amazing and Mike was such a sweetheart. He would go and do all these cute things and say sweet stuff and I melted. I loved them both so much, I loved how strong and smart they were, and how they overcome what came to them in a mature way without dragging it or making it more dramatic than it was.
I loved all the stuff I've mentioned previously, but one of the things I adored was all the times we got references of romance books or when one was mentioned and I could go like "oh, I know that one" or "I've read that one" or "that one's on my tbr". It was so much fun!
"Blind date with a book boyfriend" is just a romance reader's heaven. It's fluffy, it's cute, it's light, it goes to the point and it's such a good time. Now I need to read the author's previous books.
What I liked most was Mike making it clear he wasn't giving up easily, but not in such a way that was doing too much (in my opinion).
The prologue was a cool wrap-up, though I thought all the 'our' references was teeny overkill (I mean, we get it) but that wasn't a terrible thing and totally relative.
I really dug the story, overall. Call me a sucker for a fairytale-ish romance. That kind of stuff never happens to me. LOL
Eden adeptly composes a sassy, seasoned, and sexy rom-com from beginning to end, and doesn't drop the ball with a saggy middle.
Eden brilliantly constructs an array of authentic characters, witty dialogue, and an electrifying, fun, and sizzling plot.
Eden knots the challenge the couple faces with a plausible solution, which in itself deserves all the stars.
PS Huzzah for The Ripped Bodice!

The characters were well developed and the story executed so well that I fell in love with them. Mike was so sweet and Jordyn was a NORMAL woman which I loved, even down to her concerns over getting intimate - I loved that.
The dialogue between the two was so natural and had me grinning like a loon and laughing and sighing so many times. I also loved that the epilogue gave us a glimpse of life after the initial 24-48 hours, HEA complete yesss!
Loved it and would recommend it to anyone, quick to read and irresistible to enjoy :)
