Drey's friend Ruby has set him up on yet another blind date. Drey's not fond of blind dates -- they're awkward and have a huge potential for embarrassment. When he meets Milton, though, he begins to wonder if Ruby didn't get it right this time: the man is hot and they seem to be avoiding all the usual blind date pitfalls. Could this be the start of something good?
Blind dates too often go horribly wrong but this time Drey and Milton have gotten it right with each other. Drey’s friend Ruby fixes him up on a blind date and after all this time, he's finally found someone he can mesh with.
This sweet short story is a quick, hot and sweet. Drey and Milton’s date goes by so quickly and what happens after the date is what both characters are really looking forward to. For such a short story, the pace was languid, like a warm bubble bath or a cup of hot chocolate.
While the story was fun, there were some awkward sentences here and there that had me reading again to catch their meaning but overall the story was delightful. The beginning made sense by the end and made for a thoroughly enjoyable read.
This story is recommended for readers who want a cute and fun read, with lots of sugar on top. Perfect for a quick subway ride or for a coffee stop, these characters will worm their way into your heart and leave you with a taste for Home Cookies.
