Red Hatter Book Blog – “51 Bad Dates is the book you need to get you out of any sort of funk. It’s absolutely hilarious, sweet, swoony, and witty. I adored the style of writing just as much as I adored Wren and Wilder!”
Beyond the Covers Blog – “51 Bad Dates by m.m. clem is a quirky, delightful, lighthearted story about how to and not to find love.”
Goodreads Review – “This was such a fun read! I loved all the crazy dates and characters she meets along the way. Highly recommended 💜”
At twenty-five, Wren Cooper knows exactly what she wants: a job writing for a successful blog, to work with her best friend, and to snag the hottie she’s crushed on since she was a teen.
The problem? He’s her boss.
Being the city’s most eligible bachelor and CEO of the wildly popular blog, OurGen, shouldn’t be that hard for Wilder Owens. When a sexy, smart-mouthed young woman from his past accepts a role at his firm, he discovers being the boss isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
There’s no denying the chemistry between Wilder and Wren. If only Wilder could get past his own self-imposed “no dating employees” rule and Wren could relax and finally admit to her feelings after all this time. Can they stop arguing long enough to see what’s right in front of them?
Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars
As far as workplace romances go, 51 Bad Dates is a fun and quirky one. And their names! Wren and Wilder?!? Love it!
Wren has always had a crush on Wilder, her bestie’s brother’s best bud. Now that they are grown up, Wilder is the head of a major blog and Wren finagles herself a job. He has a strict no-dating-the-employees rule, and she’s still reluctant to admit that she likes him. But Wren’s assignment to go on one date a week for a year and blog about it just may force them both to admit to what is right in front of them.
The relationship didn’t sizzle for me as much as I would have liked it too, but Wren and Wilder were likable enough characters that the story captured my attention.
I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
m.m. clem lives in a small town in the heart of Indiana with her husband, 3 bad ass kids, and her dog Leela. She spends most of her time hauling said bad ass kids to dance practices, band practices, and club meetings. When she’s not being a slave to everyone else’s schedule, you can find her sleeping, binging on Netflix, and losing hours of her life on social media.
m.m. is addicted to iced tea and has the mouth of a well-educated sailor. She also has a huge empathetic heart. She’s quirky and has a strange/dry sense of humor too. Sarcasm is definitely her second language.
