Review: First Date

First Date by Krista McGeeFirst Date by Krista McGee
Source: Net Galley
Summary: The last thing Addy Davidson wants is to be on a reality TV show where the prize is a prom date with the President's son.
She's focused on her schoolwork so she can get a scholarship to an Ivy League college, uncomfortable in the spotlight, never been on a date, and didn't even audition for it.
But she got selected anyway.
So she does her best to get eliminated on the very first show. Right before she realizes that the President's son is possibly the most attractive guy she has ever seen in person, surprisingly nice, and seemingly unimpressed by the 99 other girls who are throwing themselves at him.
Addy's totally out of her comfort zone but that may be right where God can show her all that she was meant to be.

Review: A book that has a religious aspect to it is not something that I usually read. I have nothing against it, but for some reason every one I've picked up hasn't been the best which in the end made me stop reading them. Yet, when I saw this summary I had to pick it up. My weakness has always been cute romance novels and that's what First Date was. A romance novel to make you smile.

The main character, Addy, doesn't want anything to do with this T.V. show but she was nominated anyway and can't get out of it. When she gets there he automatically attracts the attention of the media and the presidents son and gains every other girl their as an enemy. From this plot you get some funny reality T.V. moments and cute romance from Addy and the president's son. 

While this novel was cheesy and predicable, sometimes that's just want to need. This is the perfect book for rainy, gloomy days to cheer you up. Also, First Date is a Christian fiction novel and if that's not your cup of tea, maybe this isn't the book for you. The religion isn't over done and it doesn't take over the whole novel but it is there.
