I was a Public Communications major with a minor in human sexuality and gender studies (don’t ask what I thought I’d actually do with the latter) and I am addicted to The Bachelor so T.A. Foster’s London Falling immediately struck a chord with me.
Communication 224 at Chapel Hill has a reputation for giving out the most unique projects of the semester. Professor Garcia tasks London & Beau to produce a study on the hit reality show, Love Match, where strangers fall in love on over the top dates. London and Beau decide to debunk the popular show’s fantasy portrayal of romance. Determined they can date the entire semester and not fall for each other, the classmates share blogs about their dates and start a website where everyone can follow their dating experiment. But Resisting their growing attraction for one another is harder than they thought.
“This book has it all!! It’s fast paced, sexy, and even comedic at times…if you’re a Bachelor fan, you’ll love this book, and all the inside jokes shared by the bachelor nation. If not, you’ll still enjoy the occasional humor mixed in with the smoking hot romance between these characters. – Goodreads Reviewer (Sarah)
T.A. Foster and I actually met online tweeting about the Bachelor a few weeks ago. T.A. lives in North Carolina with her adventurous pilot husband, two children and their two dogs.
Since its written by a fellow viewer, the references (& jabs) to The Bachelor are subtle and funny. I only wish I had read London Falling between seasons of The Bachelor and not when ABC-TV has over saturated the show in Juan-uary with an extra episode every Sunday night. It’s definitely the perfect read when you are looking for a Bachelor pick-me-up.
I’ll admit that I pictured my high school crush —blonde haired, blue-eyed, captain of the football and wrestling teams–as Beau. On page 203 I was grinning from ear to ear and feeling as if I was reading a page straight out of one high school class of mine.
Stay tuned for T.A.’s guest Bachelor post.
