THE DATING TRILOGY is finally COMPLETE! Read the entire series from beginning to end now!
About DATING IN THE DARK
Call center girl by day and…this is the part where I say I do something super mysterious and exotic by night. Yeah not so much.
With the big 3-0 looming its ugly head around the corner my best friend and my married and very pregnant sister have decided that I need a life. One that includes the opposite sex. Or else continue on, and become the old spinster they say I am.
It was all in jest until they set me up with a blind date. Literally.
Speed dating. In the dark. With a stranger. What were they thinking?
Fifteen minutes, that’s all you get to find the man of your dreams. Oh yeah, that’ll go over about as well as a nun in a strip club.
Playing along might not be so bad. Besides, what’s the worst that could happen? It’s not like I’ll actually end up falling in love.
What can go wrong with speed dating in the dark? A lot actually. Tinley is a lowly call center girl by day and a lonely woman at night. When her friends sign her up for a dating in the dark event she doesn’t have high hopes. Her assumption is correct until her final date of the evening. She doesn’t expect the fireworks or the connection in a 15 min conversation. When she finally meets her speed dating prince charming she is floored and cannot believe who it is. As she opens her heart to him, she soon realizes she doesn’t know him at all and he can break her heart with one action.
I really enjoyed this book. I was a bit skeptical of the premise but as I got into the story I really started to love Tinley and Marek. She is relatable in her insecurity and he is the epitome of why you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. Their love story was fun and full of drama. As their story deepens so do the chances they take. When one mistake will alter their lives forever so will the one secret he is keeping. Alexandria Bishop does a top notch job in drawing in the reader with her first book in this trilogy.
About SINKING IN THE SHADOWS
The Dating Trilogy continues with Sinking in the Shadows…
She wasn’t looking for love.
She wasn’t looking for a happily ever after.
But Dating in the Dark gave her both.
Or so she thought.
Now with a broken heart and an unexpected surprise she doesn’t know if she’ll ever find her way back to both again.
Sinking in the Shadows is the second book in The Dating Trilogy and should be read after Dating in the Dark. Tinley and Marek’s story concludes in Loving in the Light.
Tinley is heartbroken. Marek lied and now it was over. She knew things with him were too good to be true. Who really finds love at a speed dating event? When love is at stake is it really over when the other person won’t let go? Can Tinley find her way back to him even while she is harboring her own secret?
In this second installment of this addictive trilogy, we find Tinley heartbroken over Marek’s lie. She is hiding her own secret that she can only tell her sister. As she tries to move on, she can’t help but cling to the idea of Marek. Tinley is still such a relatable character. Every woman has questioned herself because a loved one has let them down or hurt them. She realizes what she really wants in her life and what she has to do to get there. We are left wondering will they get their happily ever after or will life crumble all around them.
About LOVING IN THE LIGHT
The Dating Trilogy concludes with Loving in the Light…
He came into her life when she least expected it. Stopping her from watching her life pass her by to loving every minute of it.
She got everything she didn’t know she wanted but now it’s all being threatened.
Now she’s left in a world of uncertainty with more questions than answers.
Loving in the Light is the third and final book in The Dating Trilogy. It should be read after Dating in the Dark and Sinking in the Shadows.
Marek has become so important to Tinley she doesn’t know if she can ever live without him. As she faces that possibility, she must do everything she can to keep herself and those around her together. Can Tinley and Marek finally have their HEA? Or will the world have another plan and separate them forever?
This was a great ending to this trilogy. All of the questions are answered and everything you want to know is put into this final book. Tinley and Marek’s story concludes the way it began on a sweet and dramatic way. I am hoping that another book with Marek’s sister, Giselle, will be headed our way or with Tinley’s best friend, Dakota. There is a lot more to this group of people then we have seen. If my previous reviews, have enticed you then you need to pick this trilogy up today. Believe me, when you pick up the first book you won’t want to put it down until you’ve read the final page of the third book.
