Title: DATING IN THE DARK (The Dating Trilogy #1)
Author: Alexandria Bishop
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release: March 19th
I really enjoyed this story. It had a fun and unique premise that involves “blind” speed-dating.
Tinley is hearing her biological clock ticking down as she approaches thirty. She has just about given up on finding a good and honest man. Her sister and her best friend rope her into attending a dating in the dark event that causes big shake-ups in her life.
“Are you trying to make me fall in love with you?”
“Is it working?”
“Possibly. The jury is still out on that one.”
He leans over and pulls her in for a kiss. She one hundred percent lied because she knows with all her heart she has already fallen head over heels in love with this man.”
I was pulled right into this cute story. I loved the characters and loved all the little hints of what is to come without giving too much away. The author drops teasers throughout the story like breadcrumbs that I couldn’t help but follow around and now I just can’t wait for more! Hurry up with book two PLEASE!!
DATING IN THE DARK Synopsis:
Speed dating. With a stranger. In the dark. As if dating isn’t hard enough already, why not add in a whole new challenge.
According to Tinley’s very pregnant sister, and best friend, binging on Netflix, wine, and cupcakes won’t lead to her happily ever after. What do they know?
Four courses. Four dates. Four very unwelcome, and unwanted courses. An appetizer, salad, dinner, and dessert. Every last one ends in disaster.
Except date number four. Dessert has always been Tinley’s favorite.
He’s a complete mystery, and she can’t seem to stop thinking about him. Whoever he is.
Falling in love wasn’t on her radar but that might be what’s happening between her and mystery date number four.

Tinley’s ears perk up at the sound of his voice; it’s super low and incredibly sexy. She feels along the table for her glass of wine and takes a large gulp of liquid courage before responding. “That’s okay, I’ve always been a fan of rule-breakers. Some rules were just meant to be broken. For now, I’ll just call you Mystery Date Number Four.”
A husky chuckle floats across the table, and she can’t help but be instantly attracted. She can’t see his face, but with a voice like that, it doesn’t even matter what he looks like. “Is that because I’m your fourth date or are you ranking us? What’s my competition look like?”
All thoughts of being ladylike go out the window as Tinley lets out a full-blown belly laugh. If this guy only knew. “If by ranking, you mean which date was the worst, it’s hard to tell at this point.”
“Is that so? I had some pretty bad ones myself.”
She laughs internally at the disastrous dates she’s had so far. There’s no way he can compete. “I don’t know, my dates were pretty awful. I don’t think you can top them.”
“You want to bet?”
“Oh, we’re making bets now? I guess our relationship just cranked up a notch. Instead of it just being a blind date, we’re now at the blind acquaintance level.”
She’s not sure where this level of confidence came from, but she’s liking how easily the conversation is flowing with this guy. It’s completely effortless and she’s just comfortable. It’s never been this way with anyone before.
“Is that a thing?”
“It is now.” She finds herself nodding along as she answers until she remembers he can’t actually see her.
