Blonde Date (Sarina Bowen)


A blind date. A nervous sorority girl. A mean-spirited fraternity prank. What could possibly go wrong?

As a sorority pledge, there are commandments that Katie Vickery must live by. One: thou shalt not show up for the party without a date. Two: the guy shall be an athlete, preferably an upperclassman.

Unfortunately, Katie just broke up with her jerkface football player boyfriend. Even worse, her last encounter with him resulted in utter humiliation. She’d rather hide under the bed than attend a party where he’ll be.

Yet staying home would mean letting him win.

Enjoying herself tonight was out of the question. She could only hope to get through the evening without her blind date noticing that he was spending the evening with a crazy person.

Andrew Baschnagel is living proof that nice guys don’t finish first. He’s had his eye on Katie since the moment her long legs waltzed into his art history class. So when her roommate sets Andy up to be Katie’s date, he’d be crazy to say no. Unfortunately, he doesn’t have a lot of practice with either girls or parties. Yet.

This was such a perfect little story, a great and fun read, inside the amazing world of The Ivy Years that Sarina Bowen created.

In terms of writing, this was probably my favorite of the series so far. There were a few chapters there that were purely whimsical… and hilarious and gorgeously written. And I wanted more! I wanted a whole book like this one… *sigh*

Andy and Katie were great, especially Andy, and they just clicked, even though there was no indication that they would, and they were normal together. And so darn cute!

This novella was adorable! I really liked the connection between the two main characters and how much they actually talked and shared, and, I don’t know, this just gave me feels and put a smile on my face.

My only complaint is that I wanted it to be longer. I wanted more development from both characters and the relationship itself…

So, have you read Blonde Date? What are your thoughts on this The Ivy Years‘ novella?
