Twenty-something, white, South African Emma Bradshaw has a pattern of falling for unsuitable men and starts a blog about these so-called “serial datists”. Her search for new beginnings takes her to Cape Town, where she gets a job working for sexy author, Nick Reynolds. Romance with her boss is a no-no, but slowly, Nick works his way around her defenses. Trust him, or not, especially with her awful track record with men?
When an anonymous male reader of the blog challenges her on her ideas about the male species, Emma realises she must confront her past and find her true self before she can move forward...and love can blossom again in her future.
I absolutely loved this book. Emma is a serious sassy woman who’s sharp wit and tongue portrays her confident nature. She doesn’t back down from an uncomfortable situation and I enjoyed that strength in her. She transitioned from an aloof woman to one who thawed out and made me wish we were friends.
Emma’s blog posts were amazing and I wished they were real so I could leave comments. The concept of “serial datists” is interesting. Bzzzz.
I have had the opportunity to travel to Cape Town, South Africa and Ms. Baxter’s descriptions of the gorgeous city brought back some wonderful memories which made me desire to return for another visit.
This book reminds me a little of Cecilia Ahern’s Love, Rosie with the correspondence and yet is completely different in style and content.
I give The Blog Affair five out five computer shaped chocolate bars and a high recommendation.
I purchased the novel from Amazon.
