Cassie is sick of dating. It’s been ten years and it’s time, time to find The One. It’s either that or buy a fetching habit and veil and abandon the whole thing. But Cassie believes in love, and she’s not ready to give up yet.
Cassie and her best friends make a pact that the next date they go on will be their One Last First Date. The pressure is on to find Mr. Right, and Cassie’s the first to find him: Parker Hamilton. He’s good-looking, smart, cultured—and a doctor. Despite his obvious credentials, Cassie’s not taking any chances. She’s vetted Parker so thoroughly she could offer some pointers to the CIA. Needless to say, he passes with flying colors.
Things get complicated when Will Jordan, her irritating work colleague, muscles in on her dream job and her love life. Will is a typical guy, complete with nicknames for everyone, even Cassie. His good looks and relaxed, easy nature can be distracting. But Cassie can do without that kind of distraction right now, no matter how good Will looks with his shirt off.
In the end, is there only One Last First Date?

What people are saying about One Last First Date:
★ ★ ★ ★ ★ “This is a hysterically funny and well-written romance story. Cassie is a great protagonist, relatable and realistic; I have friends exactly like her. The love/hate relationship between Will and Cassie is funny and heartwarming. Will is the type of character you always want around to lift your spirits; his insults and nicknames for everyone made me gasp. The chemistry is built gradually and the way Will speaks to Cassie in a cheeky, self-assured manner made me laugh out loud. Every character’s dialogue is unique and shows off their personalities perfectly. The conflict throughout the story kept me engrossed. You really want Cassie to choose the path of excitement and passion and not a steady, boring future with Parker. The question of who Cassie is going to choose kept my attention right up until the end. This is a brilliantly written comedy romance and I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series.” – Lesley Jones for Readers’ Favorite
