  • The Dating Charade #ARC Review

    Just when you think you’ve met your match . . . the charade begins.
    Cassie Everson is an expert at escaping bad first dates. And, after years of meeting, greeting, and running from the men who try to woo her, Cassie is almost ready to retire her hopes for a husband—and children—altogether.
    But fate has other plans, and Cassie’s online dating profile catches the eye of firefighter Jett Bentley. In Jett’s memory, Cassie Everson is the unreachable girl-of-legend from their high school days. Nervously, he messages her, setting off a chain of events that forces a reluctant Cassie back into the dating game.
    No one is more surprised than Cassie when her first date with Jett is a knockout. But when they both go home and find three children dropped in their laps—each—they independently decide to do the right and mature thing: hide the kids from each other while sorting it all out. What could go wrong?
    Melissa Ferguson’s hilarious and warmhearted debut reminds us that love can come in very small packages—and that sometimes our best-laid plans aren’t nearly as rewarding and fun as the surprises that come our way.

    Review

    I confess that the first thing that attracted me to this book was this super cute cover and I was very curious to read it because I love funny stories involving bad dates.Other than being a Christian romance, I love best-behaved romance so much....LOL... They are so so sweet.

    Cassie is tired of being so disappointed in her unsuccessful dates and always coming across the wrong guy, she already has strategies to get away at the right time. She works at a place that takes cares of  girls at risk and has made good friends there.


    Jett had a crush on Cassie during high school and when she has a chance to get closer to her now, he will do everything in his power to make her realize that he might be the right guy for her.


    Although in the blurb it says it is a romantic comedy, in fact the book is more of a dramatic comedy because the main focus eventually falls on how Cassie and Jett will have to face both the custody of children who have fallen over them.


    I liked the way the writer worked on this issue with kids from complicated homes who end up at foster homes, but I missed more chemistry among the main characters, their romance ends up very much in the background and this discouraged me a little because I expected at least more dates and more chemistry between them.

    But I had a great time with the ladies Donna Gene and Edie.
    3,5/5 stars


    Resenha

    Confesso que a primeira cosia que me atraiu para o livro foi essa capa super fofa e fiquei super curiosa ao ler a sinopse pois amo história engraçadas  envolvendo encontros mal 
    sucedidos. Fora o fato de ser um romance cristão, pois gosto muito de romances mais comportados LOL.

    Cassie está cansada de tanto se decepcionar em seus encontros amorosos e de tanto se deparar com o cara errado, ela já estratégias para fugir no momento certo. Ela trabalha num local que cuida de meninas em situação de risco e fez boas amizades lá.

    Jett teve uma paixonite por Cassie durante o high school e quando tem a chance de agora se aproximar dela, fará de tudo ao seu alcance para fazê-la perceber que ele pode ser o cara certo para ela. 

    Apesar de no sinopse dizer que é uma comédia romântica, na verdade o livro é mais uma comédia dramática pois o foco principal acaba recaindo na forma como Cassie e Jett precisarão encarar ambos a guarda de crianças que recaíram sobre eles. 

    Eu gostei da forma como a escritora trabalhou essa questão de crianças de lares complicados que acabam saindo dos cuidados dos pais para ficar em lares adotivos, mas senti falta de mais química entre os personagens principais, o romance deles acaba ficando muito em segundo plano e isso me desanimou um pouco pois esperava pelo menos mais encontros  e mais química entre eles. 

    Mas me diverti muito com as senhorinhas Donna Gene e Edie.

    3,5/ 5 estrelas
