If any of Grace Worthing's friends dared to suggest she should go on a blind date, her answer would have been, "Blind dates are so tacky; they are definitely for the desperate." She was so over men! After her fifth Sex on the Beach cocktail she told friends she would never have sex again, let alone have sex on a beach. Then, somewhere between her second and third tequila slammer, Grace found herself, agreeing to meet Adrian. Little did she know how interesting and unexpected her blind date would be.

I love novellas. They serve as reprieve from those long books that have at least 500 pages in them. And some stories can actually make you feel like you've read a full length novel for less than a hundred pages. UNEXPECTED BLIND DATE isn't a novella. It's a short story. It's like telling a story like this, Once upon a time, a princess met a prince and they lived happily ever after. So what happened with the fairy tale story? That's exactly my point.

Grace Worthing has sworn off blind dates because they're so 'tacky'. But during a drinking session she was forced to agree on a blind date. The date was supposed to be a disaster because her date who was terribly late almost didn't appear. Good thing another guy was there to save the night. And the rest was history. Really, there was no conflict or plot. I thought there was an error with my copy but no, I was just warming up when I realized it's over.

When I picked the book, I was hoping for a novella with a complete story at least. The blurb intrigued me and my expectations were way up. I hope the author will make this longer. It would be a waste not to make this a real novel.
