4*Review: FIFTY FROGS by Tawdra Kandle #MeetCute

Boy meets girl. It’s the way romances usually begin . . . and while we all love a happy ending, it’s the #MeetCute that wins our hearts.

How did you two meet?

The #MeetCute Books each have a unique answer to that query. Some might make you swoon, others might make you giggle . . . and some may make you blush.

Twelve authors. Twelve stand-alone contemporary romance novels. Twelve stories that will make your heart beat a little faster.

Because it’s all about the #MeetCute.

Vivian is sick of dating. Sick of the way guys treat her, sick of living and crying by when and if they call . . . she’s just done.

When her aunt reminds her that a girl has to kiss a lot of frogs before she finds her prince--Aunt Gail says that number is fifty--Vivian decides she’s taking control of her dating life: she’s going to go on a series of first dates only, and each one must end in a kiss. She begins chronicling each date--the good, the bad and the downright unbelievable--with a plan to turn the stories into an in-depth magazine series about the realities of dating in the twenty-first century.

Everything’s going along according to plan until Vivian hits a bump in her road with Frog Number Five, who doesn’t seem to understand his role in this deal. And despite Vivian’s determination to make it all the way to the big five-oh, when fate keeps throwing this same man across her path, she begins to wonder if maybe it’s time to ditch the plan . . . and kiss just one more frog.

My take...

When asked if I would be interested in reading FIFTY FROGS, I knew I had to. I loved the idea that this book was about and knew it had to be good. And when I was reading, I couldn't help but laugh (numerous times) at all the crazies Vivian met while trying to write an article on the joys (or lack thereof) of dating frogs while in search of her prince. She is such a fun, quirky character and you really get a feel for her quirkiness at the very start of the book. She will definitely have you smiling all throughout the book.

And Charlie, I just love him. I love how both he and Vivian find they are both in very similar situations; living arrangements, employment, and dating life. It was such a joy to watch them fall for one another in the midst of everything. So, so cute!!

I really had a hard time putting this book down. I would constantly wonder what crazy scenario and/or crazy guy Vivian would find next. I looked forward to it and the silliness that would surely ensue.

Fun plot, hilarious dating hijinks, and one adorable meet cute… FIFTY FROGS was such a good read. If you are looking for your next beach read or late night read, I think you may have just found it. 4 Stars!
