From Booklist

Philomena Donovan's boyfriend, Barrington Emery Wallace III, has money and prestige, but he kisses like a St. Bernard. As soon as she breaks up with him, her parents invite her and Barry to her perfect sister Daphne's thirtieth birthday party. Mena's parents are Barry's biggest fans, and he is the only thing about her they approve of. Following her lifelong habit of trying to please her mother and father (albeit unsuccessfully), Mena decides to get her boyfriend back. But there's a glitch: Barry has replaced Mena with another woman. Using television hero MacGyver's planning tactics, Mena decides to date Barry's best friend, the stunningly handsome boxing instructor, Riordan McKenna, to make Barry jealous enough to leave his new love. But instead of the results she expects, Mena finds herself falling for the hunky Rio, a man her parents definitely won't endorse as son-in-law material. Perry (Project Daddy, 2006) has fashioned a hilarious romp with clever characters, especially Mena; her best friend, Matt; and Mena's insect-collecting, environmentalist parents. A sure-to-please, entertaining romantic comedy. Mosley, Shelley

After reading Project Daddy, I ran to get Project Date. The same sarcastic humor was there. It was definitely funny (laugh out loud throughout) and witty. The big problem I had with it was the main character, Philomena. She was shallow, self-centered and not likable. The way she treated her sister, all because she was jealous of her not because said sister was a bad person, was appalling. The way she broke up with her boyfriend was callous. It's no wonder he warned Rio about her untrustworthy ways. The only bright spot about her was the way she was with Rio, her hero. He brought out the best in her. Too bad they didn't begin a relationship until the book was half done. I nearly quit up to that point and gave up on the story. Rio was the saving grace of the book. When he found out what Phil had done I didn't blame him for his response.

Another weakness was introducing the mysterious Magda, but the reader never finds out what she is about or why she was even in the story. I was left hanging on that one.

It's a shame, as Perry clearly has writing talent. She has great humor and showed in Project Daddy she can also write emotionally taught scenes. If she could just write a good heroine the reader can sympathize with she'd be great.

Philomena Donovan gets devastated when her parents fawn over her sister, Daphne. Heck, Mena can't even get her parents to attend her graduation. Then, surprise! Mom admits she loves Mena's boyfriend. Finally, she gets the approval she's always craved. Only problem, Mena and Barry broke up!

Thus begins PROJECT DATE: Mena must find her true love before Mom and Dad notice Barry's history. Next comes a series of disastrous dates that will have you laughing aloud and cheering for tech-savvy, Philomena Donovan. And when Mena meets hot boxing instructor Rio McKenna...the sparks FLY!

Kate Perry does it again. She's created fun, whacky characters that deal with everyday problems like sibling rivalry, parental approval, and finding Mr. Right. If you're looking for a fun escape, I highly recommend reading PROJECT DATE.

I was so excited after reading 'Project Daddy', that I immediately downloaded this book. While it still had all the laugh out loud comedy, the main character of, Philomena sort of ruining the whole story for me. In the first book I had no problem identifying to the main characters. They were so believable and they stole my heart. Unlike the loveable sarcastic main character in 'Project Daddy', I found Philomena to be so self absorb & very, very selfish. The way she treated her ex-boyfriend was so deplorable. And the way she became so jealous of her own sister was some what uncalled for, too.

Would I recommend this book? Probably not. And this admission makes me feel so sad. Especially since I have read almost every book Kate Perry has ever written, and this is the first time I've ever had to say this about one of her works. If you look at all my other reviews of her works, then you'll see what I mean.

My first book by this author, but it certainly won't be my last. Perry truly has an amazing talent! I laughed out loud so many times. The character of Mena really resonated with me and I especially enjoyed her techie humor. All of the characters were fun and though I grew up with a brother, I could totally empathize with Mena's sister and their dysfunctional relationship. I enjoyed this book so much that I purchased four more copies for my friends. I loaned my copy to my boss's wife and three days later he came in grumbling about how she woke him from a dead sleep because she was cracking up. If you don't enjoy this book, I will be really surprised!

Loved Rio and Matt, waited for Mena to grow up. Was glad to read she finally did. Only 3 stars, though. Had to push myself through much of the story, mainly because I got tired of Mena, her manipulating, and the way she picked on Daphne.

Some maddening typos, but at least one ('ajar' instead of 'a jar' as in coffee) was consistent. Toward the end, kept running into errors like 'ex34p5ample.' Really? Was this a draft? :P

Philomena is a great character! She's funny, headstrong and full of fire. I loved this story and laughed all the way through it. It's entertaining to read about someone who thinks they are doing the right thing, but just keeps making a mess of things. Sometimes those bad choices lead us to the right one. If only we'd listen to that little voice a little sooner.

PROJECT DATE - the second book of Perry's Family and Love series turns out to be a very good book. At the beginning I was having trouble with Mena's childhood baggage she's carried over into adulthood - but she finally sees the light and makes some life changes as she's about to lose the love of her life. With the dynamics this author has - she could have gone off into many different directions; however she stayed focused on 2 people who was going together originally, then broke up and each found their "soul mates." The story ends up with 5 stars from me. Happy reading to all.
