Release Blitz & Review: Save the Date - Carrie Aarons

Save the Date
Author: Carrie Aarons
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: June 24, 2018
You know that pact you make with your childhood best friend of the opposite sex? The one where, if you’re both still single, lonely and hopeless at thirty, you’ll marry each other?

This is the story about what happens when you hit the big three-oh and have to make good on that pinky promise. Personally, I think love, romance and all of that nonsense is a crock of, well, you know. And Reese Collins, the boy who used to put worms in my hair at backyard barbecues, knows that better than anyone.

But when he moves to the same city I’ve happily, and singly, inhabited for years, memories of oaths past resurface. Reese is like a dog with a bone; a really hot dog and that bone just happens to be me.

He won’t stop hounding me, and the crazy thing is, my frigid, traitorous heart is starting to cave. For my best friend.

It seems so far off, when you’re a kid playing Monopoly in your treehouse. But when that clock strikes midnight on your thirtieth birthday, and you’re standing alone in front of a grocery store-bought cupcake, a childhood deal to walk down the aisle doesn’t seem so silly anymore.

If we're still single at thirty can we promise we will marry each other? That's the promise that Reese and Erin make to each other at fifteen, unaware of how quickly thirty would come. There's been significant others, careers, and moves, with the two remaining best friends through it all. The pact was seemingly forgotten, until the call comes that Reese is moving home and thirty is looming. Erin hasn't believe in love or marriage since her parent's divorce, but Reese, who has been harboring a secret crush for years, is determined to change her mind and get the girl he know he's meant to be with. 

"My mind wanders to the pact, and if he's thought about it as our thirtieth birthdays neared." 

Sweet friends to love romances are some of my favorite escapes, so of course Save the Date was right up my alley. Even better? Carrie Aarons is the author and she has the perfect sense of humor to take this romance into rom-com territory. Erin has just the right amount of sass, with a no-nonsense attitude and an unfortunately negative view of romance. She's smart, driven, and unable to give into any of dreams. That's where Reese comes in, because he's as handsome and sweet as they can come. A pediatric nurse with a love for babies and all things Erin, he's come to follow through on the marriage pact and make the girl he's always wanted his wife. Of course, it can't be easy and the dialogue between these two is fantastic. They work through drama, have the best friendship, and along the way it is revealed that the chemistry between them has always been there, it's undeniable that they're meant to be. Carrie Aarons tells a story that's realistic, yet lighthearted, the kind that anyone can escape into for a while.
