My name is Courtney Jane Salinger…
and I’m sick of games.
Sick of the Friday night bar-scene-cum-meat-market.
Sick of the boy-girl, man-woman, mars-venus, flirtation-without-expectation, game-playing nonsense.
Sick of awful dates and one-night stands, booty calls and guys who don’t call back, mixed messages or NO messages and—and—and…I’m sick of all of it.
I just can’t do it anymore.
It’s too hard, and worse: little by little, it’s making me hard.
It’s breaking my heart.
What DO I want?
I want a house in suburbia with a white picket fence.
I want babies to buckle into a minivan.
But most of all, I want to be married.
I want a husband.
So I’ve made an important decision: I’m making my escape from the dating world and the single life.
I’ve filled out my application on ArrangeMe.com and I’m putting my fate into the hands of experts.
Is it a little scary?
I mean, I have no idea who I’ll end up with. After all, I’m planning to marry a complete stranger.
But between you and me?
I can’t wait.
Being arranged can’t possibly be worse than being single.
Pre-order the sequel, ARRANGE US, available on May 20th!
Sunny Shelly’s Review: 3.5 Stars
Without giving away the plot… I just didn’t love Courtney. I thought she rushed into a decision when there could have been an alternative. This book has a hook that I’ve never seen in contemporary fiction, but I just didn’t fall for the heroine the way I thought I would.
This book is only the first part of Courtney’s journey, so I’m interested to see where KR takes the rest of this story. I’m keeping an open mind, because I do see a lot of potential with a possible mate.
I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
