Love Is Blind meets You’ve Got Mail in this laugh-out-loud romantic comedy following two thirty-somethings who meet on a blind dating app—only to realize that their online chemistry is nothing compared to their offline rivalry.
Perpetually cheerful and eager to please, Gracie Cooper strives to make the best out of every situation. So when her father dies just months after a lung cancer diagnosis, she sets aside her dreams of pursuing her passion for art to take over his Midtown Manhattan champagne shop. She soon finds out that the store’s profit margins are being squeezed perilously tight, and complicating matters further, a giant corporation headed by the impossibly handsome, but irritatingly arrogant Sebastian Andrews is proposing a buyout. But Gracie can’t bear the thought of throwing away her father’s dream like she did her own.
Overwhelmed and not wanting to admit to her friends or family that she’s having second thoughts about the shop, Gracie seeks advice and solace from someone she’s never met—the faceless “Sir”, with whom she connected on a blind dating app where matches get to know each other through messages and common interests before exchanging real names or photos.
But although Gracie finds herself slowly falling for Sir online, she has no idea she’s already met him in real life…and they can’t stand each other.
Gracie put her plans for the future aside to honor her father by taking over his champagne business, but she wasn’t prepared for the challenge she was facing when she found out the company wasn’t as viable as she thought. While she tries to turn the business around the one bright spot in her life is the man she has been corresponding with online even though they haven’t seen pictures of each other let alone never met.
If that wasn’t complicated enough, she now has a corporation trying to purchase the business she doesn’t want to sell. From their first meeting she and Sebastian lock horns as they are both firm in their very different positions but as they spend time together, she begins to wonder if there is more to the arrogant businessman than she first thought and what does that mean for the man on the dating app who holds a piece of her heart as well?
Fun and flirty I enjoyed the slow building romance between Sebastian and Gracie. The characters are relatable and there is a great cast of secondary characters that draw you in as well.
