Speed Date: About Last Night by Ruthie Knox

Gotta Love this cover!
The Deal: For the last couple of years, Cath Talarico has dedicated herself to living a sedate life, trying very hard to put her wild-child days behind her. She even moved to London and took a job at a museum. She was doing well, even if she was a bit bored. Until the morning she woke up in City's bed. 

City is the pet name she has for one of the regulars at the train platform where she takes the tube to work. They had never really spoken, but Cath knew all she needed to know about City at a glance: he probably worked at the financial district, was too rich, too handsome and probably too uptight. 

City's real name is Nev Chamberlain and though some of the things Cath thinks of him are right - he is rich and does work at his family's bank - others aren't. Nev is warm, fun and a great painter. And he has taken a liking to Cath. 

My Thoughts: About Last Night was a fun book to read. I didn't like Cath all that much, she often got on my nerves but I really liked Nev! He is a really good guy who understands her pretty well and never, ever gives up on Cath even when she made me (as a reader) want to give up! 

Cath had reasons to be the way she was, but she was a bit melodramatic. Other than that it was a pretty soldi story. Fair warning, though! I think this is being marketed as an opposites attract book, but I don't think Cath and Nev's personalities are dissimilar enough to warrant that marketing. They are different people with different backgrounds but I didn't think it was their 'opposite-ness' that drew them to each other. 

What's a Book Speed Date, you ask? It's a quickie review--about 150 words or so--of any genre book (variety is the spice of life, after all).
