This is a brand new meme for those all to boring Monday's. Book Blind Date is inspired by a Facebook post Adria from Adria's Romance Reviews and I saw on Lawrence Public Library Page about a book blind date. This really got us thinking, what if the only thing you new about a book was what the story was about? No character names, no pretty covers to suck you in. Here's how it works, you know the old saying never judge a book by its cover? Well you won't be able to, for this meme you are going to decide which book you would go on a "date" with based on the synopsis. Names are removed just in case you have heard about these telltale heroines/heroes.

Blind Date #2
It's not everyday that you get to move to New York City and reinvent yourself. I was tired of being boring, predictable E*** M***. I was convinced that my life would be totally different in the Big Apple.
And I was right.
J*** R*** was irresistible and I had no plans on resisting him. J*** was the epitome of tall, dark and handsome and I was more than happy to let him sweep me off my feet. I expected a summer fling but instead I got a heart-stopping romance. I realized that I had met the love of my life. I just didn't realize that sometimes love isn't enough.
It's hard enough getting over an ex. It's even harder when he becomes Hollywood's next biggest heartthrob and his face is plastered on every magazine cover. But the hardest part? The hardest part is when he thrusts himself back into my life and won't let go of the past.
I survived losing the man I loved the first time. I don't think I'll survive it again.
