Publisher's Summary

Must hate dogs

Do you hate dogs? Only want to talk about yourself? Is having a sense of humor something you’ve never been accused of? Think eating for pleasure is a complete waste of time? Agree that tipping is for suckers? Then you’re the date for me.

Dixon Beckett is the kind of guy who loves his mama, treats women right, and never ever wants to fall in love again. That’s why he’ll do anything to win a bet to be the last single man standing by Christmas.

He’s got a plan, too. Create the most no-good, horrible, very bad dating profile in existence. Only someone actually responds to his ad....

The rules say he has to go on six dates with the first (or in his case, only) person who answers — even if that person is Fiona Hartigan: hater of dogs, non-lover of any delicious food, and zero sense of humor.

But something feels off about this pariah. In fact, Dixon is almost positive Fiona is just pretending to be awful. Pretending to be the most horrible date in existence. And she’s most definitely pretending to not be as interested in him as he is in her.

The more Dixon Beckett starts to unravel the mystery of why Fiona answered his ad in the first place, the more he starts considering the most vile, awful, terrible idea ever…falling in love.

Easy listen

Basic story line with easy and predictable plot. Good to listen to unwinding before sleep.

dnf

could not finish this, got to chapter 14....too much introspection all the time...head check, heart check, reality check.....geez...I know it's what makes the story but I'm not about going round in circles in your head and when action does happen your questioning it.
the cousins played pretty stupid pranks especially as they didn't know the heroine at all....
the humour didn't quite make it in my opinion, which left the funny parts a bit silly and I couldn't relate to the hero and heroine due to it. not my cuppa....

Another Hartigan story….. loved it!!!

I know this is a new story and can be read without reading The Hartigans series but I think because I had read that series, I enjoyed this even more because I knew those characters (which I loved)!!! Fiona Hartigan can’t seem to find love, she always falls for the WRONG guy!! Dixon is a CEO of the family business and he’s been done wrong in a relationship as well. Him and his cousins were very close with their late Grandma and see there’s one present left from her but not addressed to anyone. Being from a competitive family they decide to do a contest, whoever is the last man standing NOT in love by the end of the year gets the final present. Dixon has to sign up on a dating website to go out with the first person who responds to his add. He makes his profile awful…. Who’d respond to this??? Well, Fiona has been trying to get a meeting with Dixon regarding her grandma’s cosmetics line but he’s canceled on her many times. This is her chance for some one on one time, so she pretends to be the horrible person his add asks for. What could go wrong when there’s a six date limit? Such a great listen!! I’m looking forward to the cousins stories.

Wonderful new series

Who can resist a story with the Hartigan family in it? Dixon Beckett makes a bet with his cousins that he can go on 6 dates and not fall in love. He doesn't count on meeting Fiona Hartigan. Both have been hurt before and don't want to fall in love so this arrangement should be perfect. Fiona can get her grandma a foot in the door with Dixon's company and he'll win the bet. Neither one anticipates the chance that they could fall for each other. The narration by Avery Reid and Tim Paige is great.
