Not You Again by Terri Osborn, book one in The Not series, is an emotional, wonderful, heartwarming, sweet romance about dealing with decisions you make, fate, life events, and friendship.
Imagine your single friends deciding that you need an intervention, to get over losing your fiancé, and they decide that each will set you up on a blind date. That’s what happened to Becca.
Becca is a people pleaser, wanting to make her friends happy, she half-heartedly agrees to it. After all, her friends know her so they can’t be that bad; can they? Now Becca has four blind dates in five dates; one week.
The guy on the first date gets drunk, second date the guy gets into a fight, third date is a jerk. Somehow, a handsome, kind stranger keeps saving her from these awful situations.
Jacob is the Uber driver on the first night, the bouncer on the second, and with friends at the bar on the third. The universe is telling you something, there’s a reason he’s always there. The more time Becca and Jacob spend together the more they recognize a connection between them, a magnetic attraction.
Jacob’s a good listener and seems to be interested and worried in Becca. Becca wonders why Jacob couldn’t had been one of the dates. There’s just one last date for Becca to get through and she wonders what the odds are that Jacob will appear again; if only that will be the case.
Ms. Osborn wrote a wonderful, emotional, and heartwarming story that should not be missed. She provided a tale rich with magnetic attraction, strong chemistry, realistic situations, the magic of friends and love, and charming characters giving Becca and Jacob a chance at love, happiness, and a future neither expected. I highly recommend Not You Again to other readers.
I received a complimentary ARC from in exchange for an honest review.
Four blind dates in five days. I can’t believe I agreed to this.
Actually, I can. That’s what I do. I agree to things I don’t want to do to make other people happy. In this case, my four best friends. They’re worried about me and if going on a few dates will make them happy, then I’ll do it. How bad could they be?
I probably shouldn’t have asked that.
I’m starting to seriously wonder if my friends know me at all. Each pick is worse than the last, and none of them compare to my former fiancé. But then I guess maybe that’s the point. Someone new to help me forget the old.
To help me move on.
Except I don’t need a man to prove that I’ve moved on. Why can’t my friends understand that? And why does the same beautiful stranger keep saving me from these awful encounters? The universe seems to be throwing him into my path, and the more time I spend with him the more I wish that he was one of the dates.
There’s one more date left and I can’t help but wonder if he’ll pop up again. How many chance encounters can two people have? Pittsburgh is a big city so the chances are slim.
But what if…?
This sweet rom-com tells the story of a woman stuck in the past, and how meeting a series of Mr. Wrongs, plus one Mr. Right, sets her on a new path. One of healing, forgiveness, and new beginnings.
