A case of mistaken identity on a blind date leads to an one-night stand.
WHAT I LIKED
I don’t normally read romance or romcom, but I grabbed this off Kindle Unlimited because it was free, it sounded like it could be funny, and the initial question of the story — can you turn an one-night stand into a dating partner? — had some great potential. How do you go from sex without strings to a potential relationship?
WHAT I DIDN’T LIKE
The writing is lacklustre, the sexual escapades beyond unrealistic (neither very experienced but both are supposedly MIND-BLOWING in bed — it actually contains the line that he has ruined her for other men), and the characters more stupid than immature. Plus completely inconsistent — hesitant, unsure of themselves, constantly letting their personal squirrels mess with their heads until they’re drunk out of their minds, having sex, etc., and then they suddenly become confident porn stars. And there were only two scenes that were even humourous, with neither rising to funny.

THE BOTTOM LINE
More failed romance novel than RomCom
Disclosure: While I normally share my reviews on multiple public sites, I am only publishing this one here and on GoodReads as my rating is low (1 star) and the relatively new author doesn’t have more than 10 reviews on Amazon to balance out my review.
