To Lexi's surprise, Grant is a really nice guy and has only been hiding his glances at her and they way that he truly feels about her. Grant is taken back with how Lexi acts at first but once they warm up to each other and go out on their first research date, things tend to heat up. A little alcohol and the truths about each others feelings start coming to light. Lexi is so relieved that she and Grant have gotten paired up with each other now that she has gotten to know him a little better and even thinks that his geeky glasses are sexy!!
As Grant and Lexi do more and more research for their column, they become close and closer. During their research, Grant figures out that their supervisor's had set them up because they wanted then to get together and knew that if they just spent a little time with each other, they would hit it off.
This was such a well written short story that I flew right through it!! I could so see this story being made into a cute Hallmark movie!! Thanks Melinda for giving us another great read!!
It is a novella, so I expected the story to progress quickly, and it did! But despite the fast pace, it was very narrative heavy. I would've liked to have a bit more action, maybe some more dialogue, too. I was also expecting the back and forth between Grant and Lexi to progress and be drawn out more, to have that sexual tension carry us through most of the story, but it didn't. There was a bit of tension between them at the start, but they were quickly getting past it and hooking up. Don't get me wrong, their time together was H.O.T., but I personally love the "love to hate and hate to love" dynamic, and having read Melinda's others books, she's a master at this. I was really hoping there would've been more of it in this book, too.
Overall, Time Out, Valentine is a fun, heartfelt, feel good book. It's a great, quick read for a lazy afternoon or a cold evening curled up in bed. I highly recommend it.
Time Out, Valentine by Melinda Dozier is a must read for everyone. Once you open it, it will grab you and hold you down and you'll watch the pages turn and turn and turn again until you reach the end. The book is so good. I loved it. Lexi has had bad luck with men. Her supervisor at work decides to pair up employees to research sites for Valentine dates. Lexi is paired up with Grant. Grant is a geek! Before long Lexi discovers that Grant is a really cool guy, along with his sexy glasses. They become closer than just co-workers. Do opposites really attract? Ask Lexi and Grant. I gave this book 5 stars but I wanted to give it 10+. This would make a neat gift and would look good on your bookshelf. You'll be finding yourself
re-reading it over and over again. I highly recommend this book to everyone. I look for more from Melinda Dozier.
I'm going more toward a 3.5, but listed at 4 due to pure cuteness.
What a great concept for the plot! Fellow co-workers for an online magazine get thrown together by their bosses to write stories on the best places in their city to 'date' for Valentine's Day. HOW they come up with their story is completely up to them. For the characters in Time Out, that means actually going out on dates. And, falling in love, of course!
Ms. Dozier put together a quick, easy-to-read contemporary romance. A bit quirky, the characters were definitely chuckle worthy a few times.
My issue which pulls me more toward that 3.5 is there are a handful of dialogue / cliche moments where I really felt Ms. Dozier could have made a little more impact.
If you're looking for an easy, light-hearted read, this is a story you must pick up!
