Publisher's Summary

Dream date . . . or an absolute nightmare?

Lisa’s dated a series of disastrous men; Simon’s loved and lost the girl of his dreams. She’s hoping fate might intervene in her love life; he’d prefer that it stopped meddling with his.

Today, they’re meeting, courtesy of the local paper’s ‘Blind Date’ feature - but while Lisa’s looking for that elusive ‘spark’, Simon’s sure lightning doesn’t strike twice. Will theirs be a love that’s written in the stars, or merely another mismatch written up in the Gazette?

From the bestselling author of At the Wedding comes a story of two perfect strangers who might just be perfect for each other.

Fun listen with several twists

Listened to this while working out and gardening. It’s fun and silly making it a nice light distraction. I couldn’t predict most of the twists and that’s what kept my interest. Nice change of pace to have alternating chapters with with alternating perspectives and by two different readers. Summer entertainment at its best!!

Very trite!

This book is leaving in originality and fill of unnecessary babbling on. With an hour and forth minutes left, I finally said I have to stop torturing myself. It's not going to get better. It just isn't!
So very disappointing. Flat, unlikeable characters. Flat story.

Too long

This could easily be half the length that it currently is. First her side, then his side, then their side. This may work for some, but not for me. I couldn't finish it.

It's ok

I'm here for Steve West. 2 stars = just ok. Steve narrating makes it 3-star quality.

The writing is good but the story is weak and a bit mucky. Lisa and Simon are wobbly - one minute I can get behind the character, the next, I want to throw the book down in disgust because, really, who acts as they do? Very inconsistent.

Funny Sweet Story

It was definitely not what I expected in the way most stories go as to how a man and a woman meet. But it’s was fun and funny! Simon and Lisa are likeable characters who meet on a blind date. They are complete opposites. She is an extrovert who can run ahead of things making assumptions instead of asking questions first. He is an introvert a bit shy. Both of them have their own issues to contend with that affects their self confidence and make their date anything but a normal “get to know you” meeting. I had a wonderful time going along for the ride and was sad when it came to an end. Steve West and Rachael Beresford do a wonderful job in Matt Dunn’s book. You will love this story! ♥️🥰

Bland and drug out

The entire story is about one 24 hour date. It was very boring. I kept listening hoping there would be a turn but there wasn’t.

The worse female narration ever....

I love Matt Dunn's books, he's such a good writer. However, I tried on 3 different occasions to listen to this. I have had to ditch the audio book and buy the printed copy, as the female narrator is so appalling. At first I thought it was being read by a computer, but it was worse. Flat toneless reading, too many pauses, she killed it dead. Steve West is great - Matt Dunn is brilliant - they deserve better and so do the listeners.

Then I read this

Whoever heard of a decent romantic novel written by a man? Not me.
And then I read this.
The book won me over: funny, brilliantly told by two people and full of missed opportunities.
We all know what will happen with this sort of book but it’s the journey that’s important and this was an adventure over a weekend.
I will be reading more by Matt Dunn. In fact, I have one lined up and ready to go right now.

Not one of his best...

But a good holiday read that was enjoyable if somewhat predictable. However, won't stop me trying others of his that I haven't read yet.
performance wise I found the females performance a bit irritating and pedestrian.
