Publisher's Summary

One night changes everything... again.

Years ago, when Ryan Stewart saw Shawna Ferguson, it was love at first sight. Unfortunately, he wasn't a free man, and his deception caused him to lose her after a weekend that changed his life.

When Shawna's sister and brother-in-law set her up on a blind date, she has no idea it's with Ryan, with whom she'd spent a weekend she wishes she could forget. She reluctantly agrees to finish the date with him, but doing so leaves her vulnerable to his charms and the heat he ignited in her that very first night.

    "Passionate Story"

    The lovers are swept away in their passion. Beautifully written. My second Delaney Diamond book and I'm a fan. Looking forward to the next book. The narrator is wonderful. Love his voice.

    "Pleasantly surprised!"

    The narrator made the difference!!! I had read the book prior and liked it. But the narrator kicked it up a notch! Very expressive and emotional, even enjoyed his accents with the other characters. I definitely prefer audio books, but the narrator must be able to capture and hold his audience as was done in this this case. I can now say I love this book!! Looking forward to hearing more from Ms Diamond.

    "New Narrator please"

    I thoroughly, enjoyed the story. I had a fight for the under dog, though he started off as a dog vibe. The only thing holding me back was the narrator. His voice was a pain and did not jive well with the characters and they projected certain emotions.
    I'm new to reviews. Not my thing, but I promised to give an honest review. I love Diamond Delaney as an author and will continue to support her work and will get the next audiobook in this series because I will be on the road the next couple of weeks. Desperate for the next story. I will suffer through his voice one last time.

    Story
    "multifaceted heroine"

    Characters were believable and dialog flowed. Shauna's response to being wronged by Ryan was appropriate and fair. He actually got off easy for such a crude, selfish act. I enjoyed the fact that race was mentioned but not center stage. This book was about deceit, hurt, redemption and love. Delaney is an effective storyteller.

    "Loved it!"

    Great story
    Great narrator his voice was smooth and sexy especially when he read the sex scenes. I listened to this at work and I literally had to pause and just listen when he described the sex I just couldn't concentrate on anything else he really brought the story to life.

    "I liked it"
    What did you love best about The Blind Date?

    I think "love" is a pretty strong word for feelings concerning this book. I enjoyed it, but I wouldn't go so far to say love.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The flashbacks to life before. I enjoyed Shawna and Ryan's young love and all the possibilities therein. So, my favorite part of the book is their beginning.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Michael Pauley?

    I have no idea.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Well, I want to listen to all of my audio books in one sitting. I'm a pretty impatient listener and reader.


    Any additional comments?

    Shawna and Ryan's love began over a span of two days. I can buy it. What I find myself resolving is that neither of them find a suitable mate in six years. Either way, neither character was complex. The main characters were developed adequately. Although, my favorite charaters have to be Ryan and his Puerto Rican friend. The Puerto Rican friend because he had me laughing.

    Either way, good book. I enjoyed it.

    "GREAT STORY"

    I like the way the plot was revealed. The characters were believable and the scenario was believable for their ages. You learn with age to just "man up" at all times...it will make your life so much simpler.
