Desperate and Dateless? Certainly not, Zoe O’Malley declares. How dare her girlfriend send her a ticket to the Desperate and Dateless ball! No way will she go anywhere with a computer-matched date. But fate intervenes and when Liam and Zoe are drawn together over a business arrangement prior to the ball, their lives become irretrievably entangled. Can they live by their golden rule—never mix busness with pleasure?
Good, funny, entertaining! – Susan Joynor-Pettigraf
MacNeil has taken an age-old plot and reshaped it into something new and wonderful.The characters are well-drawn and readers are sure to find themselves emotionally drawn to them. Each of the characters is three-dimensional and thoroughly fleshed out. They make readers care about them. The plot is rich and believable, not contrived and unrealistic. The story will have roadsters hanging to the edge of their seats not being able to read the pages fast enough to see what's going to happen next. Pacing is where most writers fall short, but not in this one. MacNeil has written what would amount to a page-turner if it were a traditional book.
