"The perfect fun-filled escape from reality! Kate O'Keeffe at her delightful best!" - Bestselling author Whitney DineenThree friends form the No More Bad Dates Pact: stop dating the wrong guys and start dating the right ones - weirdos and jerks need not apply.

Twenty-five-year-old Sophie McCarthy's career is virtually nonexistent, her family expects her to "do something important" with her life, and she's totally sick of dating the wrong guys: the self-absorbed, the arrogant, the borderline criminally insane. After she's unceremoniously dumped during the vows at her boss's wedding, she and her two equally disappointed-in-love best friends agree to help each other find decent guys to date. Together, they form the No More Bad Dates Pact: stop dating the wrong guys and start dating the right ones-weirdos and jerks need not apply.

When Sophie's roommate Jason Christie-a.k.a. doctor-in-training and serial nurse-dater-joins the pact, he vows to weed out the bad ones for her. But with his rejection of every guy Sophie meets, she begins to wonder if he's got an ulterior motive. And anyway, why does she always have so much more fun with Jason than with the guys she's actually trying to date?

While desperately seeking her "happy for now," could Sophie stumble into her "happily ever after?"

High Tea is a spin-off of Kate O'Keeffe's bestselling Cozy Cottage Caf� series.

My Thoughts

No More Bad Dates is an adult contemporary romantic comedy by Kate O’Keeffe. It is the first book in the high tea series, which is taglined as a cozy cottage cafe story. I am unsure at the moment if all of the books in the series will be standalones or if you will need to read them in order. If I had to guess, I would think they are will be set in the same world, but will all act as standalone cozy romances. I have to say I don’t love the cover because it reminds me too much of Barbie, but I do love the story setup.

In No More Bad Dates we meet our main character Sophie, who gets dumped at a wedding by a royal jerk. Because, seriously…who does that??! Oh don’t worry, he had a great reason. View Spoiler » Because Sophie has been burned one too many times, she decides to have her friends help her pick out guys to date before she dates them. This is an adorable setup, and screams cozy romantic comedy. Great for a day curled up with a blanket. I really enjoyed Sophie, her friends and her roommate Jason as they tried to find Sophie the perfect guy.

Bottom line: If you are a fan of  friends to more tropes and you like adorably cute, light-hearted reads, then No More Bad Dates is the perfect thing for the pool, or a lazy Sunday afternoon, or even a rainy day. I really enjoyed this cute story. It was exactly what I expect, which is exactly what I wanted.
