Friends or More
The story begins with Caitlin and Jonas in a friends with benefits relationship. Caitlin has always been skittish when Jonas tries for more so he’s never brought up the fact that he wants MORE. He wants to see if they have what it takes for a committed relationship. Caitlin wants no part in a relationship. So Jonas walks out of her room and her life with hopes that she’ll stop him, give them a chance. No such luck.
Six months later, Caitlin decides she needs to move on with her life. When her friend persuades her to beta-test the new dating app, she reluctantly agrees to a month of dating. She asks Jonas if she could use his bar as the “meeting” place for her dates as that’s the only place she feels safe. Jonas agrees, but also decides to put his own plan into motion. With the assistance of her friend, he sets up a profile and starts chatting with her via the app with hopes of proving how right they are for each other.
While I truly enjoyed this novel, I didn’t get the title at all. Caitlin didn’t agree to 28 dates or go on 28 dates. With that said, I liked that Jonas (the guy) was actually the one who wanted more. There for awhile, I was hoping that Jonas would find someone that truly appreciated him and loved him. I’m glad that Caitlin finally realized that “the one” was right beside her the whole time. As a couple they completed each other. Apart, they were miserable. I read a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.
