"The Perfect Date" blog tour

When a single mom ends up playing an unwilling fake girlfriend to a charming playboy baseball player, love suddenly turns everything upside down in this fun, heartwarming multicultural romance.

 Angel Gomez has never lived by the book. A Bronx-based unwed mother by the time she was
sixteen, Angel’s personal mission has always been to show the world that a Puerto Rican girl is not to be messed with—especially by a man. The only thing that matters to Angel, now, is providing for her son and earning enough tips at the club to complete her nursing degree along the way. Love is nowhere on her agenda.
Caleb “The Duke” Lewis is a star pitcher for the Bronx Bolts whose romantic escapades make delicious fodder for gossip columns. But lately he’s been trying to keep a lower profile—so much so that when he meets Angel, first while she’s in her nurse uniform and the next time behind the bar, she has no idea who Duke is, fails to fall for his obvious charm, and ends up throwing a drink in his face! She is the perfect woman for fool the tabloids into thinking he’s finally settling down. But what begins as a charade soon has Duke and Angel hurtling into a full-blown romance that rocks each of their worlds and begs the question: Is this the real deal—or are some love stories just too good to be true?
 My Review:
"The Perfect Date" is one of those books that draws the reader into the drama that is unfolding on the pages and with this book there is a lot.  The two main characters, Angel and Duke, have a lot to deal with in their own lives personally, and professionally, and neither is really looking for love.  Angel became a mom young while in her teens and then her support system, her mother, passed away when her son was two years old.  She has been trying to keep afloat and do what is best for her son.  Very quickly, she discovers that she needs to pretend with Duke, and carry on a charade as this is going to be beneficial for her. Duke is struggling from an injury and trying to work through some of his own issues and he needs a good thing happening for him in the tabloids right now.  As these two lives intersect the reader is taken on quite the ride as several issues are addressed and dealt with.  This is a quick read, not a light, "beach read," but a book that will draw you in have you thinking about struggles that other have to deal with.
