Blind Date, Checkmate by Veronica Blade Book Review

Blind Date, Checkmate (ebook)

Should a woman who’s unable to forget her first love give “happily ever after” one more try?

Shelby Winters’ one great love went sour. If she can’t feel that way about a guy again, why bother? When Shelby’s best friend sets her up on a blind date with Logan, the guy who broke her heart, he pursues her relentlessly, forcing her to make a choice: give her heart what it’s always desired and risk total devastation or shut Logan out and lose her only shot at happiness. To Shelby, it’s a lose-lose situation.
Veronica has done it again! I absolutely loved Something Witchy This Way Comes. SWTC was a young adult book and this book was for a more mature audience and I have to say she captured my heart with this one!

I am a big old sap for love stories especially when you have to fight for the love to stay alive. In this story Shelby has moved away from home and started a new life after losing the love of her life Logan. They dated for many years in high school but then Logan had to move away and when he left he took Shelby's heart with him. Shelby tried dating different guys but it never worked out for long because all she thought about was Logan and how much she loved him. It didn't matter what she tried she could not get rid of him because he was everywhere she looked. See Logan was a famos Author and he was all over the billboards and magazines and the news. So no matter how hard she tried to forget him she could not.

Logan loves Shelby he is miserable without her but the long distance thing just does not seem to be working for them. So he breaks up with her in hopes that she will find someone to love. The only thing is he can't get over her and he wants her back. He is afraid that she will tell him to get lost because she is still angry with him but he loves her and will do anything to be with her but will that be enough for him? Will Shelby let him back in?

Her best friend tired of seeing her hurt and alone tries hard to fix Shelby up with Mr Right only thing is Mr Right is not her idea of right. Then her best friend sends her on a blind date and tells her she will know who it is when she gets to the resturant. Once Shelby gets there to the resturant her life will forever be changed because the person sitting there patiently waiting for her is someone she definately did not want to see.

What is a girl to do when she loves someone and the other person doesn't love her or so she thinks? Can time heal all wounds? What will Shelby do with this stranger she is sitting next to? When love is all you have is it enough to mend the heart and restart a relationship you thought was lost? Read this book to find out and you will not be disappointed!

Veronica I look forward to reading more from you! Thanks a bunch for this great read.
