Book Review | The Introvert’s Guide to Speed Dating


Speed dating: the act in which you have two minutes to figure out how much of a jerk someone is. And pretend like you don’t have the hots for your son’s soccer coach.

After four years living the single life, it’s decided that I, London Stuart, am back on the market.

I’m not even mad when my cousins and best friends put my name down for the speed dating sessions. In fact, I’m actually a little excited about it.

Until one of my dates turns out to be my six-year-old son’s irresistibly sexy soccer coach. His irresistibly sexy British soccer coach.

Oliver Hayes is too good to be true—he’s tall, dark, handsome, hilarious, and he genuinely loves kids. Especially mine. But he’s not sure if he’s even staying in the country, and I’m not sure I can handle giving him my heart if he’s only going to leave.

So why is he over for dinner almost every night? Why is he giving Leo private goalie sessions in the backyard? Why is he sending flowers to my desk at the newspaper?

And why, oh why, can’t I stop kissing him?

Absolutely loved this one! Who wouldn’t since it has hot sexy Oliver from England in it!!! This book was entirely too much fun to read. A tad bit disappointed that there weren’t as many senior shenanigans, but a great read nothing less.

London has been conned into speed dating by her aunt Jasmine and Holly. It is a disaster of course, especially since she is not ready to date. As a single mother, she really doesn’t have the time. Not only that, but she has her son Leo to think about.

Oliver has been training the kids at the sports center how to play soccer. He does nothing but work and sleep. He is lonely and it just brings on the homesickness. He has a crush on someone, but she doesn’t want to date.

One night of speed dating and Oliver sees his chance. Will these two get a happily ever after or will he move home to England?

This book, like all of Emma’s books is a perfect blend of sexy, laughs and seriousness. Her characters are smart and strong. Each with their own backstory leading them to that perfect love. And the path they take is full of entertaining fun and laughter. She is the Queen of Rom-Com! Can’t wait to read more!
