Scroll down to see my review…..
When the publicity team of the new local restaurant, Going in Blind, began their search for a hot, local celebrity to promote the wildly popular eatery, they couldn’t have found a better person than me.
Open to finding love? Check.
I signed up immediately.
A hopeless romantic with an exceedingly demanding schedule, I’ve found it impossible to find the man of my dreams—so Going in Blind seems too good to be true! That’s until they start setting me up on dates—three very different, very attractive, very distinct blind dates—and only one thing is for certain . . .
I’m in big trouble.
“Just state my name?”
“Yeah. Gives us a quick rundown on who you are, what you do, your interests, and what you’re looking for in a man.”
I nod and clear my throat. Sitting tall, my hands resting in my lap, I speak directly into the camera . . .
“Hi, I’m Noely Clark, and I’m one of your Good Morning, Malibu hosts. As you know, I’m single and in the market for love. As a twenty-seven-year-old woman who has had her fair share of rotten relationships, hookups, and dates, I want to try something new. I want to be thrust into a program where my celebrity status isn’t the first thing someone knows about me, where I can be known for who I am as a person rather than how I’m represented on TV.”
“And who is the person you want to be known for?”
Tilting my head to the side, I purse my lips, thinking of my answer. “Just a regular girl who loves Tom Hanks, would do just about anything adventurous, and would rather be seen eating nachos at a hockey game than enjoying a chardonnay during a classic night at the opera.”
“And what are you looking for in a man?”
Taking a deep breath, I look straight into the camera. “Someone who will cuddle on my couch and watch a classic romcom with me. Someone who will challenge me. Someone who is respectful and courteous to others but also has no qualms about shouting at an official while pounding on the glass at a hockey game. We don’t have to be a perfect match, because when is that really the case? But I want our match to be close with a little bit of wiggle room for some give and take, because what’s love without a little bit of compromise, without being able to adapt to your partner and love what they love? It’s the people in our life who mold us, and I’m far from being molded completely.”
Author, wife, adoptive mother, and peanut butter lover. Will dance for laughs, won’t eat anything spicy because you asked, but will squeeze boobs in replace of a hug. Grew up in Southern California (Temecula, anyone? Anyone?) lived in New York (the armpit of NY, not the city) and now resides in Colorado with my wife, son, two dogs, three cats, and my multiple book boyfriends. Loves love, anything romantic, and will die if I ever meet Tom Hanks. Yay, books!

Everytime I see that Meghan has a new book coming out, I get giddy, like seriously giddy. Her stories are everything you could ask for in a romantic comedy.
Three Blind Dates is no exception. This story of Noely and her three blind dates, The Suit, The Rebel and The Jock takes you on a journey of funny laugh out loud moments, crazy best friend moments (man I wish I had a Dylan in my life!), the swoony romantical moments and last, but certainly not least, the steamy hot physical moments.
I love how Meghan actually pulls you into her story with you, a’la Ferris Bueller, with lines like “You and I both know his lips have touched mine”. Meghan takes you by the hand and leads you along her merry way.
I so understood Noely’s vulnerability and her cracks about herself (“I’m feeling like Kraft Singles compared to his Camembert.”) really resonated with me. I think we all have had that moment when we thought we weren’t good enough. But instead of making it sad and depressing, Meghan brings the humor and laughter to it (it really is OK to laugh at yourself!).
Meghan, I cannot express the love I have for your words! Thank you for writing another fabulous, funny, swoony story!
