WHAT DOES A GAL HAVE TO DO TO GET A GOOD DATE IN THIS TOWN?
Adele Harris can't even begin to answer that question. She's had so many lousy dates that she's sure she's cursed. Why else would every man she goes out with suddenly act like he's lost his mind--and his manners? Adele thought life couldn't get any more confusing . . . until she learns the marriage of her seemingly Miss Perfect sister is on the rocks. So she goes back to their hometown to give her a shoulder to cry on, only to run smack into Zach Zemaitis . . . the one who got away.
TEXANS LOVE GOD, FAMILY, AND FOOTBALL, THOUGH NOT ALWAYS IN THAT ORDER
Zach, a former pro star, knows all about football. As for the other two, well, he's doing his best. But when Adele comes charging back into his life--still all lush curves and beautiful, big blue eyes--he wonders if his best is good enough. After all, he did her wrong. Can a woman with her track record ever really believe that he's serious this time . . . or is he destined to be another bad date?
A "New York Times"-bestselling author delivers the fourth installment of her series about four writer friends and the messes they get into when they decide to try out the wild side of life. Original.
What can I say? I always like a good chicklit... I can even say I need this kind of books from time to time, just to feel good ^^. Rachel Gibson succeeded again and let the reader behind with a good feeling and the idea everything will work out after all. The strange thing is Gibson always writes books I really love, though the concept is always the same. Especially in the four "writer friends" books. Every single time we find a woman not looking for love but finding it nevertheless and that in the person she least thought about... Every time it's a relationship with ups and downs but everything ends well of course.
In "Not another bad date" we meet Adele Harris, the last of our four writer friends without a husband. She isn't looking for a man in her life because she believes she's cursed. Every man she meets, turns out to be an smdfqie#mjfmioezq ;) so it seems better to stay alone. When her sister Sherilyn is pregnant and her husband leaves her, she decides to move back to the town they came from. Because of some complications Adele feels she needs to accompany her sister but she doesn't like the idea very much. She once left this town because of the single boy she truly loved in her life, Zach Zemaitis. The single boy she loved but also the one who broke her heart in a thousand pieces when he left her for his pregnant ex-girlfriend, Devon.
As this is a chicklit book, it's only normal Adele and Harris meet again and both of them discover that the thing they once had isn't quite over... Though Adele desperately (hmmmm) fights to get over him and to not fall in love, she fails big time... I think you know what happens next, but to be sure you'd better read the book ;)
