RELEASE BLITZ REVIEW & GIVEAWAY - Dating in the Dark (The Dating Trilogy #1) by Alexandria Bishop

Today we have the release blitz for DATING IN THE DARK 
by Alexandria Bishop! 
Check it out and grab your copy today!


Speed dating. 
With a stranger. 
In the dark. 

As if dating isn't hard enough already, why not add in a whole new challenge. According to Tinley's very pregnant sister, and best friend, binging on Netflix, wine, and cupcakes won't lead to her happily ever after. 

What do they know? 

Four courses. 
Four dates. 
Four very unwelcome, and unwanted courses. 
An appetizer, salad, dinner, and dessert. 
Every last one ends in disaster. 
Except date number four. 

Dessert has always been Tinley's favorite. He's a complete mystery, and she can't seem to stop thinking about him. Whoever he is. 

Falling in love wasn't on her radar but that might be what's happening between her and mystery date number four. 

This was my first time reading Alexandria Bishop and it didn't take me long to get wrapped up into this book. Tinley is a woman after my own heart, with her love of baking cupcakes and drinking wine.

I thought the concept of Dating in the Dark to be something that could be interesting, maybe even fun, as long as one didn't end up with the dates Tinley endured (especially date #1!) I had an inkling who Date #4 was going to be, and while I was glad I was right about my guess, I had a bit of a hard time buying into the sudden dynamics change between Tinley and Date #4, since there was no history of flirtation prior to their second date when identities were revealed. I will say that I like the chemistry between them though. What I wasn't expecting was that cliffhanger! I had to actually 
re-read it to make sure I read it correctly the first time. I'm impatient to get the next book to find out how this twist will be explained. And hopefully we'll get answers about what's going on with Tinley's roommate and best friend Dakota


"Whatever, just hand me what you have, and I'll try it all on." She reaches for the huge pile from Tara's hands. 
"Happy now?" 
"Yep. Now get your cute butt into that fitting room and model everything for me." 
With a huff, Tinley throws the pile of clothes over her shoulder and trudges her way over. She doesn't see an employee in sight when the rooms come into view and hopes she doesn't need a key to get in. She'd rather not have to drag herself all over the store with this ridiculous pile of clothing. She tries the first door in front of her, and of course, it's locked. 
The doors go all the way to the floor, so there's no way she can slide her body underneath even if she wanted to. She starts to walk back out into the store when she spots a door slightly ajar at the end of the hallway. She shuffles past all the other rooms and pushes the door wide open. For a split second, she has that awkward panic moment-her feet glued to their spot on the floor and a look of horror on her face. 
She can't look away, but what's in front of her is absolutely terrifying. The woman screams, which finally pulls Tinley out of her daze. She slams the door shut, the clothes tumble from her hands, and she hightails it out of there. She doesn't even stop to tell Tara she's leaving as she speed walks by her. The only thing on her mind is getting out of this store as fast as humanly possible without making a scene. As soon as Tinley steps foot out of the store, someone pulls on her arm and whips her around. "What just happened? Why did you leave?"
