Synopsis (Goodreads):
A blind date. A nervous sorority girl. A mean-spirited fraternity prank. What could possibly go wrong?

As a sorority pledge, there are commandments that Katie Vickery must live by. One: thou shalt not show up for the party without a date. Two: the guy shall be an athlete, preferably an upperclassman.

Unfortunately, Katie just broke up with her jerkface football player boyfriend. Even worse, her last encounter with him resulted in utter humiliation. She’d rather hide under the bed than attend a party where he'll be.

Yet staying home would mean letting him win.

Enjoying herself tonight was out of the question. She could only hope to get through the evening without her blind date noticing that he was spending the evening with a crazy person.

Andrew Baschnagel is living proof that nice guys don’t finish first. He’s had his eye on Katie since the moment her long legs waltzed into his art history class. So when her roommate sets Andy up to be Katie’s date, he’d be crazy to say no. Unfortunately, he doesn’t have a lot of practice with either girls or parties. Yet.
Thoughts on Blonde Date: Katie and Andy. KATIE AND ANDY. THEY ARE THE ABSOLUTE CUTEST! Dash lost out big time with his immature actions. But it's okay because KATIE AND ANDY! SO CUTE!

Seriously, I adored Andy's perceived awkwardness that ended up winning Katie over because he was so invested in her as a person. I liked that Katie was unapologetic about who she was. She liked sex. Period. And she checked herself when she started getting catty about another girl, which was FABULOUS. Not only that, she faced up to what was done to her and gave the girl in question a dose of truth about her worth as a person. ROCK ON, SISTER.

I really don't know whether I liked Katie or Andy more. They both worked for me in a lot of different ways and THAT EPILOGUE. *thumbs up*

I had honestly forgotten how much I enjoy watching the students at Harkness fumbling their way into adulthood. This series makes me genuinely happy and I can't wait to dive into the rest of the books.
