Cassie Dunhill is sick of dating. It’s been ten years and it’s time, time to find The One. It’s either that or buy a fetching habit and veil and abandon the whole thing. But Cassie believes in love, and she’s not ready to give up yet.
Cassie and her best friends make a pact that the next date they go on will be their One Last First Date. The pressure is on to find Mr. Right, and Cassie’s the first to find him: Parker Hamilton. He’s good-looking, smart, cultured—and a doctor. Despite his obvious credentials, Cassie’s not taking any chances. She’s vetted Parker so thoroughly she could offer some pointers to the CIA. He passes with flying colors.
Things get complicated when Will Jordan, her irritating work colleague, muscles in on her dream job and her love life. Will is a typical guy, complete with nicknames for everyone, even Cassie. His good looks and relaxed and easy nature can be distracting. But Cassie can do without that kind of distraction right now, no matter how good Will looks with his shirt off.
In the end, is there only One Last First Date?
This is my very first Kate O’Keeffe book that I’ve read and I just loved it. I’ve got a few more titles of hers on my Kindle and I’m really looking forward to getting to them as well as book two in the series.
The book follows Cassie through finding her possible One Last First Date after making a pact on the beach with her friends. The pact is, the next date you have is the man you’ll marry. AAHHH!!! How nerve wracking would that be?! You’d have to do some serious investigating to make sure you didn’t choose wrong!
Cassie is hilarious and gets herself into some quite awkward, embarrassing situations. Which makes me categorize this book into classic chick lit. Not only is she on the quest for love, with a man that she truly has done her research on but things definitely are not going as planned. Do they ever? Especially with men?
Parker is the man Cassie has set her eyes on and I just loved him. He’s your classic gentleman right from the start. Does it work out with Cassie though? I don’t know, I would hate to give that away and rob you of the pleasure of immersing yourself into this story.
This book is the start of a series. Cassie has a few friends that are fun, witty, and with just as many issues as Cassie. I can not wait to read Paige, and Marissa’s stories as well!!
This book is well written, romantic, funny and everything a great chick lit book is. I’m super excited to read another of Kate’s titles!
