Here’s the blurb for Not Another Bad Date:
WHAT DOES A GAL HAVE TO DO TO GET A GOOD DATE IN THIS TOWN?
Adele Harris can’t even begin to answer that question. She’s had so many lousy dates that she’s sure she’s cursed. Why else would every man she goes out with suddenly act like he’s lost his mind -- and his manners? Adele thought life couldn’t get any more confusing…until she learns the marriage of her seemingly Miss Perfect sister is on the rocks. So she goes back to their hometown to give her a shoulder to cry on, only to run smack into Zach Zemaitis…the one who got away.
TEXANS LOVE GOD, FAMILY, AND FOOTBALL, THOUGH NOT ALWAYS IN THAT ORDER
Zach, a former pro star, knows all about football. As for the other two, well, he’s doing his best. But when Adele comes charging back into his life -- still all lush curves and beautiful, big blue eyes -- he wonders if his best is good enough. After all, he did her wrong. Can a woman with her track record ever really believe that he’s serious this time…or is he destines to be another bad date?
Both Adele and Zach have issues. Adele believes that she’s cursed, all the men in her life are jerks. Zach doesn’t trust very easily, he’s afraid to be trapped again. I found Adele hilarious, but Zach got on my nerves. Okay, he’s sexy, yummy with a heart of gold, but his little problem with trust was pissing me off.
Overall, I enjoyed the book, it was a wonderful light beach read. That’s exactly where I read it too.
I MISS THE HOCKEY PLAYERS!
