Book Review: A Blind Date for the Marine

Happy Monday!

I’m dropping by to bring you a quick book review! I had a chance to read this arc by Jess Mastorakos and I adored it. Grab a cup of tea (or coffee) and join me for my thoughts.


About the Book

Blind dating for the digital age. What could go wrong?

When my best friend asks me to test his new dating app, I’m not sure it’s a good idea. After all, I’m moving out of the country in six months. What’s the point?

But he insists it’s just to help him out, so I give it a shot. Plus, the mystery of it is kind of fun. There are no photos until you’ve been talking for thirty days, so it’s all about the connection.

What I didn’t expect was to immediately hit it off with a bookish charmer on the app at the same time as someone pretty similar in real life. Two women? Why couldn’t this happen when I wasn’t about to leave?

Now that I thought about it, BookishDreamer from the app reminds me a lot of Claire from the real world… wouldn’t it be crazy if they were the same person?

Nah. What are the odds of that?

My Thoughts

pin me
I loved book 1 in the First Come Love series so I eagerly jumped at a chance to review A Blind Date for the Marine. Happily, book 2 knocked it out the park for me.

I stayed up late reading this because I had to know what happened. A bookish heroine who dreams of being a writer? Yes, please! I sooo identify with this and loved the nods to reading, writing, and the writing community.

A hero, Marine, and a fellow reader? Double yes. The messages between the two, the humor throughout the pages, and the mystery around when they’d figure out who was who kept me turning the pages until I reached the end. (This was an all-night read for me).

Oh and the epilogue was absolute perfection! I canNOT wait until book 3 in this series.

*I received a complimentary copy from the publisher. My review was not required nor influenced.
