Summary

Veronica Welch has made it. She’s about to be named a partner at one of the most prestigious law firms in New York City. She’s on top of the world, except for one tiny ridiculous thing: She promised herself she’d be married by 35. After a drink too many, she accidentally lets her “life plan” slip to Bea, her steadfast, ever-meddling assistant, and now Bea won’t let the idea go. 

Rachel Monaghan doesn’t do serious relationships. As a busy wedding photographer, she’s jaded about lasting love, has a thriving repeat business, and hasn’t had much luck with love herself. While bartending at her cousin’s bar, Rachel learns of Bea’s plan to get her boss married off by scheduling 30 dates in 30 days.

In this sophisticated contemporary romance, Veronica Welch tries to find love in the most efficient way possible while Rachel Monaghan avoids love at all costs. What could possibly go wrong?

So in love with this book

Everything I love from an Elle Spencer novel. Hilarious dialogue that makes me laugh out loud. Two people you can’t stop rooting for. A happy ending. And a bonus peek into Madison and Anna’s life!

I don’t know, this might edge out Casting Lacey as my most recommended book.

Wow This Was Cute

This book made me laugh and cry. I can’t believe how well written it was. I genuinely finished this in on day. I couldn’t put it down.

I took about 12 hours between finishing it and writing my review because I wanted to see if I still thought about it in the morning (I totally was). I’ll try and reel in my enthusiasm but just know that I haven’t felt this way about a book, especially a romance book, in a long time.

The story revolves around Veronica Welch. She’s about to make partner at the firm she’s working at and almost everything is going her way. Everything except her love life. She just simply doesn’t have enough time or energy to devote to dating and getting to know someone. Insert her assistant. She signs her up for a dating site and sets up a blind date for her. She get’s Veronica to agree to go on some dates (30 dates in 30 days) with different women so that she can find someone.

The dates themselves were hilarious and exactly what it’s like in the dating scene (at least it was when I remembered it). All the dates were held in the same quiet bar and the bartenders and local regulars start to take notice of what V’s doing. Especially one of the part-time bartenders who is a full-time Wedding Photographer.

I won’t go into too much more detail, but I thought that this book reminded me a lot of a better version of 27 Dressed. I would go see this movie if it was ever turned into one because it was so damn cute. The interaction, the drama, and the emotions were all spot on. I mean it when I said I could not put this down. I listened to it all day Christmas Eve and finished it in one day. Spencer has catapulted herself to the top of my list and I must listen to more of her audiobooks.

The narration by Lori Prince took this to another level. She slows down when things get emotional and speeds up when needed. Her narration really made this book fly by.

Put this one pin your favorites shelf!

Elle, as expected, did not at all disappoint with this new one of hers. It was sweet and included lots of laughs. Veronica, having locked in all her life's goals, with her final being to make partner on the horizon now, wants to focus on her love life and future family. She has the love and support of her family and her ever loyal assistant-who's in cahoots with Veronica's mom to play matchmaker-in her corner, what could go wrong? Rachel, is four years out from being hurt in the worst way possible and as a result, has sworn off love. She has a thriving photography career and doesn't let anything with a woman get past her 'three date' rule and she's sticking to her guns. As Veronica endures date after date in Rachel's, cousin's bar, anything is bound to happen and it most certainly does. This was a fun and entertaining story of familial love, budding friendships and one woman's goal to find love amidst another's goal to dodge it at all costs. Get this book today, and thank me later. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to have another listen.🤓

Score

I laughed out loud and cried during this story. Rachel was very lucky that Veronica was willing to wait for her to wake up and be happy. The back and forth nearly killed me. I love a happy ending and hope their story continues.

Ending left me hanging

I loved the story, I thought it was very believable.

I just wanted the story to go into the proposal and the wedding and maybe fast forward and hear how they are doing how many kids they have etc.

I don’t care for Laurie prince narrative because she always makes one of the characters manly. This book was better than most she narrates but I really wish she would work on it as most authors seem to use her

Another hit from Elle Spencer!!

She’s a genius at writing witty banter and engaging dialogue. Not only are the MCs lovable, but the secondary characters are wonderful as well. The talented Lori Prince was perfect as the narrator. I’ll be listening to this book more than once.

JUST MEH!!

The book took forever to get to the point. It dragged on and the back and forth of the two main characters seemed redundant. It was just ok.

Just delightful! Made me laugh and grin.
Light and not quite predictable. Loved the premise.
