Book & Author Details:

10 Dates by Emily James
Publication date: May 16th 2017
Genres: Romantic Comedy, Contemporary Romance

10 DatesJoanie Fox can’t wait to settle down and marry the man of her dreams. However, when her engagement starts to look more stalemate than soulmate, her best friend stages an intervention sure to make even the most hardened, serial daters wince: 10 Dates in 10 Days.

Statistically, if you kiss a lot of frogs there’s bound to be at least one that’s not a complete toad, isn’t there? With nothing to lose, Joanie embarks on a crazy rollercoaster of blind dates. After all, what can possibly go wrong in the search for Mr. Right?

10 Dates is a standalone, sexy, laugh out loud romantic comedy with a happy ending. It is not for the feint hearted and is best suited for readers over the age of eighteen due to sexual themes and mature content.


When I receive an email from an author which starts with “Hello fellow Brit” I confess that I am immediately interested in the content of the email.  And, whilst I don’t agree to review all the books which are submitted to me, this is one book that I am glad that I added to the schedule.

There is so much to enjoy about this story.  The characters are wonderfully entertaining and Joanie’s antics genuinely had me laughing out loud at points.  Although this bordered on slapstick at times, it never descended into farce, and the overall story telling was stronger as a result.

Although I could see where this was going to end up, I didn’t feel at all short changed because the journey to that ending was well worth the read.

Well deserving of the 5*.

I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
