Book Review – The First Date by Zara Stoneley @rararesources #BookReview #BlogTour #contemporary

Many thanks to Rachel and Rachel’s Random Resources for my spot on this Blog Tour.

An easy breezy read which gave me the feeling of meet cute when the two main characters encountered each other. Humorous chick-lit was what I expected from this book, and author Zara Stoneley delivered it in most parts.

Rosie had just come from a break-up and was trying tinder for the first date. The guy stood her up. She met Noah and things escalated between them though he was not her type.

Having read this author’s earlier works, I knew I would get a story which would produce few smiles and be totally stress free. And I was right. Rosie and Noah had the slowly developing chemistry. Their banter was quite funny.

Relationships with Mum and best friend were etched well, it gladdened my heart. There were a few niggles, Rosie had daddy issues and that came about in every chapter. Few more emotions would have given it the right balance.

Overall, it was a fun read on a lazy Saturday afternoon.

I received a free ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

All my reviews can be read here

Right place.
Right time.
Wrong guy …

After breaking up with her childhood sweetheart, clueless dater Rosie has found herself in a boyfriend-drought. So when she finally swipes right on a guy who seems interested, she can’t wait to meet up IRL.

Until she’s left standing alone. In a bar. Ghosted.

Enter Noah. Confident, funny … and a serial first dater. Offering to give Rosie a crash course in seduction, this could be just what she needs. Until her matchmaker turns out to be the best date she’s ever had – and Rosie wonders if she wants the fake dates to be the real ones after all …

Publication Date: April 2020

  1. Lovely review, Shalini! Humorous, stress-free chicklit seems to be all I’ve been reading recently. Time for one of your famous breakfast reads…they’ve become a meme of their own 😊❤
