Review - One Last First Date by Kate O'Keeffe

Cassie Dunhill is sick of dating. It’s been ten years now and it’s time: time to find The One. It’s either that or buy a fetching habit and veil, and abandon the whole thing. But Cassie believes in love and she’s not ready to give up yet.
She and her friends decide to take drastic action. They make a pact to marry the next guy they go out with. That means just One Last First Date. The pressure is on.
Of course, Cassie can’t take the leap without the perfect guy. Enter ideal marriage material, Parker Hamilton. He’s good looking, smart, cultured—and a doctor. I mean, come on! Despite his obvious credentials, Cassie’s not taking any chances. She’s vetted Parker so thoroughly, she could offer some pointers to the CIA.
At last, she knows everything she needs to know about him. Well, almost. Cassie’s taking the leap: Parker Hamilton is her One Last First Date.
But when Will Jordan, her irritating work colleague, muscles in on her dream job and her love life, things get complicated. Like, how good Will looks with his shirt off type of complicated. Really, Cassie can do without that kind of distraction right now.
When all is said and done, will Parker turn out to be The One for Cassie? And what happens when someone else decides Cassie’s The One for him? Perhaps, through it all, Cassie needs to figure out who she is—and what she really needs.

Escape to New Zealand in this fun, feel-good chick lit story.

Book 1 in the new Cozy Cottage Café series.
Book 2 due out in mid 2017!


My Thoughts
What a fun read!  A great beach read for the summer hands down! 
Who isn't sick of dating?
Well Cassie, Paige and Marissa enter into a pack (after a few glasses of wine of course!).  Paige is little more into it than the other two but they all go along with it in the end.  They made this pact in front of the Goddess of the Beach.  The next man each girl goes out with will be their last first date.  They will MARRY that man (hope he's a good catch)!
Hmmmm....not sure if I would enter into such pact but I am all about hearing their fun tale!
And hey, Cassie meets Parker and who wouldn't say yes to marrying a gorgeous Dr.  Think about that for a minute?  But are things really as perfect as they seem or should be?
In what should be the happiest time in Cassie's life, she needs to deal with an annoying co-worker (in walk's another gorgeous professional guy) Will Jordan.  He gets under Cassie's skin more than any man she has ever met!
But this is where my review ends, I can't give away all the fun juicy gossip that takes place with these girls!  There is a little romance, a little love, a little sadness and a whole lot of fun!  I can't wait for the next book!

Drink Selection
What better way to toast the Goddess of the Beach then with little sparkly bottles of Champs!  Aren't they are the cutest things ever!

I can't say enough about this fun summer read!  I am smiling while writing my review!

Author Bio
I write funny, sexy, feel-good romantic comedies.

I've loved rom coms, romance, and chick lit since I first encountered Bridget Jones as a young, impressionable writer. It really was a match made in chick lit heaven.

I've been a teacher and a sales executive, but am now content as a mother and writer, madly scribbling all the ideas I've accumulated during my time on this planet we call home.

I live and love in beautiful New Zealand--where my novels are all set--with my wonderful family and my two very scruffy, naughty dogs.
