Happy Pub Day! The Dating Game is available today, September 10, 2021!
In ‘The Dating Game’, we meet Abigail Jones, a young woman who writes a tv show recap column under the pen name of Anastasia Flabbergasted. The show, cleverly called ‘Stag and Does’ is a fun spin on the Bachelor. When her boss and the tv show’s producer come up with a scheme to put Abby undercover on the show to get a more detailed look into the behind the scenes, she is swept off to Sydney, Australia for filming.
While Abby is pretending to be looking for a mate, the perfect guy inserts himself into her life in the form of producer, Jack. Abby has to juggle not only her writing gig, but also the many relationships amongst her fellow ‘does’, her crush on Jack, and trying to play the game well enough to stay on the show until the end.
I enjoyed this different take on the behind the scene look at a dating show. The different ladies on the show were fun to get to know, and the book as a whole seemed completely believable. I think fans of the Bachelor and Bachelorette franchises will really enjoy this fun take on the show!
Thanks to Netgalley and One More Chapter for the ARC given to me in exchange for my honest review.
