Blind Date is a “blindingly” fast moving short contemporary romance. In a few pages, two people meet, have a blind date, fall in love, move in together, discover a stalker, do an investigation with the police, catch the stalker, have a picnic, get engaged, and have a lot of sex in between.
The heroine, Keli, is set up by her best friend to go on a date with the best friend’s cousin, a Caucasian guy, Trevor. Sparks fly on the first date. Trevor is the perfect man. There are absolutely no flaws in this guy. He has blond hair, blue eyes, is a gentleman, has a great job, can cook and wants to marry her pretty much on the spot. I would have liked to have seen some flaws in Trevor and watch him grow. It would have given him more depth.
Keli, other the hand seemed a little clueless. She constantly leaves her window open even when she knows there’s a pervert/peeping Tom looking and taking pictures. She never calls the police, but just acts disgusted. She wasn’t a very clever heroine. I was glad that a smart guy like Trevor wanted to marry her.
Basically, the two never really had any obstacles to their love except the initial “I’ve never dated a white guy”. However, the banter between Keli and her best friend was well written and hilarious. After the initial date, the story just moved too fast, and a lot of things happened with the stalker.
Overall it was an average read and emotionally satisfying with the two getting engaged in the end.
