Who says turning 30 has to be a bad thing?

Tinley Scott is in a rut. Or so her best friend and sister tell her. She can't fall in love sitting on her couch watching Friends and drinking a bottle of wine. Their answer?

Speed dating in the dark.

Dating in today's world is hard enough as it is. Why go adding a new challenge to the mix? By date number three, she's ready to throw in the towel and return to her safe haven.

Until her final date sets her panties ablaze. His deep voice, his practiced words...everything about him lights Tinley's fire.

Too quickly their 15-minute date is over and done with. Or so she thought. Their easy banter continues through a slew of text messages until the inevitable happens.

Meeting face to face.

Falling in love wasn't on Tinley's radar, but then she wasn't counting on mystery date number four.

Dating in the Dark is the first book in the enemies to lovers Dating Trilogy. Books 1 & 2 end in cliffhangers. If you love snarky heroines and panty melting heroes, then you'll love this sexy rom-com trilogy.

Leaves you hanging

Not a complete book. The writer can't make up her mind what tense to write in. But the story is first rate. It needs to be finished and polished.

Immature characters made this book unreadable

This was a DNF for me. Early on in the book, the "heroine" has a meltdown over seeing a stranger's boy hair and has a massively immature reaction over it. I expect behavior like that from a child, not an adult. I just could not read a book that followed a character that behaves in such a childish way. Not sure why the author felt this moment was needed in the book.

Wonderful beginning!

I totally enjoyed reading this book. Loved the story line and characters. Have second book in this series ready and waiting to start.

Didn't do anything for me

First I should say I didn't realize it would have a major cliffhanger. I'm not sure if that is mentioned but I didn't see it in the description anywhere.

The use of present tense is bad enough but when it's also third person, I couldn't stand it. It's just too hard to read. That's probably personal preference though.

Honestly, I didn't find much humor, though I thought the concept was kind of cute, but then it didn't follow through for me.

I could not figure out how this guy was such a (@$^&%@#&%%@! at work and then was a great guy on their dates. How can a guy who treats a person like dirt for years suddenly turn into a nice guy off the clock, and she didn't even question why? It was almost like there were twins and the one at work was the evil twin. It was too convenient that there were no scenes at work whatsoever after they got together. How would he have treated her?

It was annoying how he never answered her question about the chick who was hanging on him at the mall. He thought he question was the funniest thing ever and didn't explain why, and she let it go without question. At the end we kind of guess who she is - and please explain why she was so possessive- but the way she didn't press for an answer was ridiculous.

I just could not get into the writing style and I couldn't care about the characters, so no, I won't be continuing the series. A shame because I really liked the premise.

Anyone who it s familiar with my book reviews knows I am not a fan of serial, multibook stories but I stepped into this one knowing it was a trilogy (after all it says so in the title). So, I read the book and I LOVED IT! Alexandria Bishop is now a go-to author for me. Her easy style puts you directly in the story and the humor is uplifting. The story is original and well presented, even if the ending is elusive. That being said, I have just ordered the other two books in the trilogy so now I am off to enjoy the rest of the story. Won't you join me?

Good read

Nice read. Well created reality and background. Enjoyable plot. Interesting characters and relationships among them. All together a good read for a long Fall evening. Enjoy.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

3.5 stars!

Being that I’m always on the hunt for new and interesting angles in romance and Dating in the Dark had such a unique plot, it immediately piqued my interest. Alexandria Bishop is a new-to-me author and I’m glad I decided to take a chance on this book.

Dating in the Dark is the story of Tinley, a call-center operator, and her search for love. Tinley is an ‘everyday’ kind of woman; she’s feeling stuck in her job, loves to stay at home making cupcakes and drinking wine, and having girls’ night with her roommate and sister.

After being roped into a blind date experience by her friends, Tinley finds out that love isn’t always a big mystery. What follows is a rollercoaster of emotions and learning to trust another person with her happiness.

The idea of eating and dating while blind was such an interesting concept and the men seated at Tinley’s table certainly didn’t disappoint. I know they say every shoe has a mate, but Tinley is matched with some very “unique individuals” and it’s the funniest part of the book.

While I enjoyed the storyline, I have to be honest and say that I am not a big fan of third person perspective in romance novels. In the past, I have found it difficult to connect with characters and I’m afraid to say that this happened again with Dating in the Dark.

To me, the imagery of the scenes needs to become a part of the story, since we do not get to hear the internal monologue of the characters. I guess I was missing that ‘immersive’ feeling here.

All that being said, if you don’t mind third person POV, definitely give Dating in the Dark a try.

It is part of a trilogy, so be prepared for a cliffhanger ending to this first book.

Tinley has been put into the dating pool unexpectedly by her sister and friend. They set her up to do a speed dating night and when she wasn’t expecting much , she definitely was surprised.
