Tommy’s Blind Date by Anne Brooke
Tommy’s Blind Date
By Anne Brooke
In this little short of one man’s quest for a blind date that won’t go horribly wrong we find a delightful man that discovers a thing or two about himself and his best friend when he takes a dare.
Tommy’s love life is stalled, and the blind dates he keeps getting set up with are so totally not his type of men at all. He comes to office after his last one to tell his best friend, an actor, all about the bungle it turned into. Jacob offers him a dare, he goes on a blind date with him, putting his best foot forward and they will act like they don’t know each other at all. Afterward, Jacob will tell him what he might be doing wrong to send all these men he has been set up with running. Amused and intrigued, Tommy agrees.
The Jacob he meets at the restaurant is very much in control, and calls him Thomas. Tommy finds himself responding this man on a level he has never responded to any other. In the morning, will they go back to being best friends? Or have they started something they both want to keep?
These two men are a delight to read about, I am sure Ms. Brooke had a blast writing about them, it came through in the writing very clearly. The subtle joking, the colorful way the characters describe each other and themselves. The plain fun that goes into Tommy getting ready for this all important date had me laughing until I was crying. The way that Jacob took charge when Tommy got to the restaurant late and kept it through the rest of the date; had me panting to be his date. I loved how well developed these characters are with hopes dreams and aspirations that they had never told each other before this night. A five star rating for this book, you have another winner, Ms. Brooke, thank you.
