28 Dates (Crazy Love #3) 

by Stacey Lynn 

In the age of apps and social media, how many dates does it take to find “the one”? The author of Knocked Up and Fake Wife swipes right on love with a captivating friends-to-lovers tale.

Caitlin Pappas is a lifelong commitment-phobe. The closest thing she’s had to a relationship in the last few years was a friends-with-benefits thing that fizzled out because the guy wanted more. So when she and her best friend design a new app that promises to find “the one” in 28 Dates, Caitlin is the perfect guinea pig. Little does she know that she may have already met her match. . . .

Jonas Reeves has tried his best to move on after Caitlin didn’t want take things to the next level. Now they really are just friends . . . without benefits. Caitlin’s even a regular at his bar, The Dirty Martini. But when he learns that Caitlin plans to beta-test a new dating app on his home turf, Jonas senses a golden opportunity to win her heart. Even if he has to slide into her DMs to do it. . . .

This has been a fun series of standalone reads and 28 DATES was a perfect addition to the series. I had hoped to learn more about Caitlin Pappas when we met her in the first book, FAKE WIFE, where one of her best friends gets his HEA. Caitlin is a commitment-phobe but she has reason to be, in her eyes anyway.
Jonas Reeves has been in a two year friends-with-benefits arrangement with Caitlin and he thinks it's time this bartender/bar owner takes the next step and asks Caitlin out on a real date. What he doesn't expect is that she would say no.

In this second-chance-at-love story Caitlin has agreed to test her friend, Trey's, new dating app but only for thirty days because she has no intention of finding someone to settle down with even though that is exactly what the app is for. I have to say some of the dates she went on had me gagging and at one point I thought I was going to spit out the coffee I was drinking....I mean ewwww totally gross! 

For me I fell hard and was rooting for Jonas from the very beginning, Caitlin eventually grew on me and since she was the one I was wanting to read about that was interesting change. This book was steamy but not as steamy as most of Stacey Lynn's books, did I feel as if I was missing anything? No, and I'll tell you why, it's because as with all of the books I have read by this author, they are well written and have you so engrossed in the story you really don't realize it until you finish the book. 

WEEKEND FLING, the fourth book in the series, is due out in November and I honestly can't wait to get my hands on Trey's story and learn more about this nerdy hunk of a man.

Happy Reading!!!
