Publisher's Summary

“Go on a date,” she said. “You’ll love it,” she said. She was wrong!

It had been one year, two months and seventeen days since my last date. So my best friend Abby decided to sign me up for a dating app. She guaranteed that she could get me the best date of my life within one week. I didn’t really want to do it, but I figured what did I have to lose?

Turns out that I had:

1. $500

2. My dignity

3. My patience and

4. My innocence to lose

OK, so I didn’t really have my innocence to lose, but believe you me, Jack Morrison was my worst date ever. And I’ve been on a lot of bad dates. Trust me when I say that that was the longest ten hours and 33 minutes of my life. I never wanted to see or speak to him again. 

But it turns out you don’t always get what you want in life, because Jack showed up the very next day at a family gathering I was attending as a fake plus one. As you can imagine that was a real pickle, Jack wanted to know why I went on a date with him when I’m dating someone else. But he can’t know the whole complicated truth of the matter. I’m in a fake relationship and now I’m being blackmailed by the worst date ever. 

That’s not even the worst part. I decided to log onto this new app called “confession board” to seek some advice, but it turns out Jack Morrison is absolutely everywhere and he’s not going to leave me alone until I submit to his demands.

ONLY FEMALE NARRATOR

Christian Black was ONLY in the epilogue!!!!!! So if u only buy/listen to books with dual narration (like I do), then DON’T waste a credit !!! The story was very slow in the beginning and I feel like it missed the consequences of some decisions that were made 😠

Excellent!

I loved listening to Worst Date Ever, it made me smile, laugh, swoon and just enjoy listening to a great book. The storyline was so good and one I hadn't read / experienced before. Isabella and Jack don't exactly hit it off at their first meeting but they still have chemistry which finds them hooking up but Isabella (who gets irritated very easily) leaves immediately after with no way to contact Jack and not wanting to.

By fate, these two end up meeting again but under tricky circumstances that has Jack questioning Isabella's motives, although she is just helping out a friend who also happens to be Jack's cousin. There is a lot of misunderstanding, miscommunication and just getting irritated way to easily that cause these two to continue to butt heads, yet have amazing chemistry in bed. They both are very attracted to one another but Jack is very leary of all women after a bad break-up / life experience with his ex fiance. There is so much more to this story including wonderful friendships, business transactions, love of art, adorable grandparents, sexy times, an HEA and so much more. This really is a great read and I highly recommend reading / listening to it, you will be so happy you did.

Christian Black and Laurie West did a great job at narrating this story. I look forward to hearing more from both of these narrators.

Slow but steady and then!!

The book started out slow. The storyline picked up and then wham bam thank you Cooper! Honestly, it is a fast read and leaves you wanting to know more! Seriously though JS doesn’t disappoint! It’s like she peeks inside her readers minds and knows what we want to read and escape to! Get the book and fall in love with this author people!!

Fun banter filled romance

This is a funny banter, bad date, fake relationship, emotional love story that will have you hooked right from the start.
Isabella is looking for love but hasn't dated in over a year. Her friend sets up a profile and talks to her date without giving Isabella any information but his name.
Let the fun begin.
The first date with Jack was terrible and it cost her money and a chunk of her pride. She was never seeing him again. Right?
Then the fake relationship with her friend Lucas. Oh man it just doesn't get any better. Jack is there and the word play and abuse just keeps going. But the feelings grow stronger. Maybe Jack is just misunderstood, or maybe not?
I strongly suggest this book. It looks like a great start to another fun romantic comedy romance series by J.S. Cooper.

Another one Down. JS Cooper did it Again!

I read the 2nd book of this series first and loved it. This one is the perfect spicy romantic comedy. The characters are developed wonderfully. As you read, you realize that the characters are not one dimensional. I LOOOOVE Nana. who are these two trying to fool her, both Jack and Lucas the joke was on them. Definitely I recommend this book yo everyone. 5 stars on Overall, Performance and the great story.

Worst Date, Best Date

Listening to this story, put a a twist on the push and pull feelings Jack and Isabella have for each other. It is a good story, filled with mistrust, heat and a fierce passion that has you wanting more.

Jack's walls are built so high, you begin to wonder if they will ever come down. When Isabella breaks through their tall takes a new twist.

I enjoyed the banter between Jack and Isabella and the first date was a perfect start to the beginning.

Enjoyed every page!!

I absolutely enjoyed everything about this book! Have you ever gone out on a date and not had it turn out like you expected it to? Maybe had it turn out even worse? Have you ever had a best friend that you would do just about anything to help them out? Well, funny thing because Isabella is about to find herself being convinced by one of her friends all about how she should let them match her up on a dating app. All because our friends would be so much better at picking a man for us than we are ourselves. Well, she meets Jack and well he is so good looking, that is about where the good ends. Right from the start things turn out less than stellar however there is something that keeps causing Isabella to continue on with the night. All the way of having some unintended sparks happen between them. Jack, who always seems to be saying the wrong things, can’t understand why she is leaving right after vs staying with him. Could it be the huge insult that he just said to her? It is nights like these when you say well it was just a date and I won’t ever see that person again. So, the question becomes if you did see them again what would you say? Would you be brave and tell them how you really felt, put you cards on the table? Would you try to have another go round, a redo for your date again? So, I mentioned a best friend; Isabella has a best friend Lucas who has also asked her if she would be a little more than just a date but to pretend to be his girlfriend. How far would you go to have a friend? So, Isabella thinks she is just going on an innocent trip to the country to meet Lucas’s family and pretend to be his girlfriend. Interesting what you find when you meet family. Everything about everyone might not be what they seem. Isabella is in for a big surprise. You will have to read what happens. Will Isabella see Jack again? Is there chemistry there, a possibility for something real? What is going on with Isabella and Lucas and will they fool his family or will the truth come out?
I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.

Funny, Quick Witted and A fun read!

I had several laugh out loud moments when reading this! The sarcasm and by plays with Jack and Isabella were hilarious! I loved getting to know the family and hope to hear their love stories as well!

I liked Isabella and Jack's story.

"Worst Date Ever" (The Worst Ever Series Book 1) by J. S. Cooper is a good story. I liked Isabella and Jack's story. This story had humor, romance, close friends, family, twists, and more. I'm looking forward to seeing what happens next in this new series in "Worst Boss Ever". Recommend to all fans of romance, humor, and series.
