No More Terrible Dates

Am I facing a second chance at love with my high school crush, or setting myself up for another round of heartbreak?

Alex Walsh is my worst nightmare.

He’s the full package of handsome and suave, the heartthrob of my high school days. The memory of our kiss hasn’t faded, despite the humiliation that followed.

Now I’m stuck working with him, showcasing his photographs—and inadvertently, his charm—at my boss’s gallery.

But I’ve turned over a new leaf. No more kissing toads. My friends and I made a pact to find Mr. Right, not Mr. Right Back to High School. Even if his photographs and his story have touched my heart in a way I didn’t see coming.

Can I resist falling for the guy I’ve spent so many years trying to forget?


Set in New Zealand, No More Terrible Dates is the second title in a Flirting with Forever spin-off series called Friends & Forevers. Check out the trailer below…


Readers LOVE No More Terrible Dates:

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ “No More Terrible Dates by Kate O’Keeffe is an entertaining romantic comedy. Larissa’s quirks are the main attraction of the plot. If I were to imitate her style, I would say Larissa has a magnificent aura that entices readers to read on. Kate O’Keeffe has, thankfully, stayed far away from the popular practice of making guys drool over the heroine’s physical appearance. Darcy is more than her looks. She is a romantic, but romance is not the only thing on her mind. She is organized, witty, and focused. Besides breathing life into amazing characters, Kate O’Keeffe has woven together conflicting emotions, engaging conversations, and comic moments that hold readers till the end. The story progresses at a perfect pace, which is neither too rushed nor too slow. The author has done a great job of balancing the emotions of the characters to save the story from becoming a mushy romance read. No More Terrible Dates by Kate O’Keeffe is the perfect chick-lit story to captivate and entertain readers.” – Readers’ Favorite
