Heart Desires by Becca Dale

Devlynn Connors doesn’t trust her own ability to find a man who isn’t a control freak, but when she turns her future over to her friends and Madame Eve, she fears nothing will change.

When he flies to Las Vegas for a 1Night Stand hook-up, First Lieutenant Stephan Mallard isn’t looking for love. He’s looking to appease his sister’s fear that he will end up alone. A man can do anything for one night, right?

Can Madame Eve overcome misinformation and misperceptions or will Devlynn and the Lieutenant go home alone?

Reviewer: Dolce Amore
I must say that I expected a lot more from this book. The story line is not credible; the main characters are not sufficiently developed and their behavior is incredibly stupid; and the secondary ones are almost non-existent.

Ms. Becca Dale tried to create an original story where Devlynn Connors meets Erik Mallard on a plane to Vegas. Each are going to Vegas for a blind date, not knowing that the other is their date. I liked this part, it was sweet.

What I didn’t like was that, on the plane, he started to touch her, although a male flight attendant knew what they were doing. And the fact that he invented some kind a fantasy to hide what they were doing. He was saying that she was his wife and he was rubbing her stomach because she was pregnant.

But this part wasn’t the most unbelievable. It seems that Erik let her best friends, who appear in just two or three sentences in the whole book, to complete the questionnaire she received from 1 Night Stand, although she knew that they would chose a strong-minded, arrogant jerk. When you pay a lot of money for a blind date, you make sure that the guy fulfills your requirements. And Devlynn’s date was selected by his sister, this part I understood, who wanted a well-mannered and well-groomed woman.

And then they start to behave strangely: he like a jerk and she like a bitch.

I won’t say more, I will let you find out if they clarify the situation.

I give it just 2 stars and hope that the next of Ms. Becca Dale's books will be better.
