See My Review Below!!
friend of the opposite sex? The one where, if you’re both still single, lonely
and hopeless at thirty, you’ll marry each other?This is the story about what happens when you hit the big three-oh and have to
make good on that pinky promise.
Personally, I think love, romance and all of that nonsense is a crock of, well,
you know. And Reese Collins, the boy who used to put worms in my hair at
backyard barbecues, knows that better than anyone.
But when he moves to the same city I’ve happily, and singly, inhabited for
years, memories of oaths past resurface. Reese is like a dog with a bone; a
really hot dog and that bone just happens to be me.
He won’t stop hounding me, and the crazy thing is, my frigid, traitorous heart
is starting to cave. For my best friend.
It seems so far off, when you’re a kid playing Monopoly in your treehouse. But
when that clock strikes midnight on your thirtieth birthday, and you’re
standing alone in front of a grocery store-bought cupcake, a childhood deal to
walk down the aisle doesn’t seem so silly anymore.

husband, snuggling her infant daughter, and chasing her black Lab through the
dog parks of New Jersey.
Well I found another new to me author to stalk! In a healthy, respectful way!
Save the Date is the first book I have read by Carrie and it was fabulous!
There are numerous things I love about this story of Erin and Reese. I am going to highlight just a few…
First, I loved the humor, it was subtle, it was smart and it was sexy! My favorite genre is romantic comedy and Carrie brings it in spades with this book!
Second, I loved the fresh twist in the story. As Reese explains it “Our personality types were so reversed for what our gender stereotypes should be.” I loved reading how Reese fought for Erin. Because of their lifelong friendship, Reese knew what Erin needed, sometimes even before she did.
Third, the chemistry between these two! The slow burn, the awkwardness of their first time together was phenomenal! I loved Erin’s honesty and bluntness, I wish I could be more like her!
Last, (well there is a ton more things to love, but I don’t want to inundate you!) the secondary characters were fantastic! I hope I get to read some stories of some of them in future books!
This is a page turner! I could not put it down! As soon as I finish with this review that really doesn’t do the story justice. (Just go read it and see if you don’t fall in love with it too!) I plan on putting all of her past books on my TBR list!
