Iris Kelly Doesn't Date

By Ashley Herring Blake
Iris Kelly Doesn't Date by Ashley Herring Blake digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

A fake relationship after a horrible one-night stand is anything but an act in this witty and heartfelt new romantic comedy by Ashley Herring Blake.
 
Everyone around Iris Kelly is in love. Her best friends are all coupled up, her siblings have partners that are perfect for them, and her parents are still blissfully married. And she’s happy for all of them, truly. Iris doesn’t want any of that—dating, love, romance. She’ll stick to her commitment-free hookups, thanks very much, except no one in her life will just let her be. Everyone wants to see her settled down, but she holds firmly to her no dating rule. There’s only one problem—Iris is a romance author facing an imminent deadline for her second book, and she’s completely out of ideas.
 
Perfectly happy to ignore her problems as per usual, Iris goes to a bar in Portland and meets a sexy stranger, Stefania, and a night of dancing and making out turns into the worst one-night stand Iris has had in her life. To get her mind off everything, Iris tries out for the lead role in a local play, a queer retelling of Much Ado About Nothing, but comes face-to-face with Stefania, whose real name turns out to be Stevie. Desperate to save face in front of her friends, Stevie asks Iris to play along as her girlfriend. Iris is shocked, but when she realizes the arrangement might provide her with some much-needed romantic content for her book, she agrees. As the two women play the part of a happy couple, lines start to blur, and they’re left wondering who will make the real first move....

Beaming Face with Smiling Eyes“I loved this book, great way to end the series! Iris is so fun, caring and just needed someome to love her! She's been burned by all her other relationships so she just here for sex and a good time. Stevie was trying not to be all in her head, and be impulsive, fun and free, so she tries to hook up with Iris. That didn't go well but they form a fake relationship and the actually fall for each other. So heartwarming and beautiful. Also very funny!! Loved the banter and goofiness between them!!!”
