Blind DatingBlind Dating
Kerry Taylor 
When mid-forties, divorced, single-mother-of-three, Kimberly, realizes her own mother has more of a life than she does, she decides to do something about it. Encouraged by success stories from people at work, she joins a dating chat room, ICQ, and gets a lot more than she ever bargained for.

All of a sudden she’s a swinging single, online and in the real world, with extreme dates, a little dirty talk, and a sense of her new, sexy self— until that fateful moment when her long-time chat-room buddy, LonelySingle, wants to meet.

What if he doesn’t like her?

What if she doesn’t like him?

These are the thoughts, inside her head. Until they meet and realise, that they have been friends offline aswell as online!

What happens next?

A light-hearted, romantic comedy about a single mom finding true love, which was right before her eyes.

Blind Dating is a romantic novella that introduces us to Kimberley, a divorcee with 3 kids that finally decided that she needs to get out there and finally experience the world and everything that she has been missing out. Her children are her everything but the non-stop schedule is tiring her and she had enough. After deciding to start chatting online, she's taking control of her life and of her body. Working out, doing reckless things, dating out in the real world gives her more confidence to be a better friend, sister and a mother. 

Fast, funny and enjoyable read. I finished the story in just few hours. What I can say about this book is that from the start it sounded like I'm sitting in the middle of a therapy session and just listen to the woman express her feelings. But as the book went on, I really started enjoying the book because it was funny and was written very lightly. It was one of those books that really easy to read.  3 Stars!!!
