So ... let's start with the bad and end with the good, yeah? I'm not all that fond of the cover. It seems like a basic stock photo with some text slapped on it. I've seen a million covers just like it. Ergo ... I wouldn't buy this book in print to put on my beautiful, beautiful shelves because I'm admittedly a little shallow when it comes to my book shrine (bookshelves). Moving on the story aspect ... At times, it was predictable, which took some of the oomph out of it. Other times, Caitlin (fem ...more

28 Dates by Stacey Lynn was cute and sweet. Caitlin and Jonas are friends with benefits but Jonas wants more. Caitlin is afraid of commitment and breaks it off. They remain friends, sort of. Caitlin's boss asks her to test his dating app and Jonas joins without her knowing. They get matched and Jonas tries to win her heart via text, while watching her go on 28 dates with random dudes. Eventually Caitlin finds out the dude she likes from the app is Jonas. She's not pissed that he sort of lied. Sh ...more

Review by Trinette Dungee

One attack years ago has everyone in Caitlin’s circle thinking it’s the reason she stays away from commitment; it’s the loveless marriage she saw her parents live through and the lack of love they gave to her that keeps her distant. The only people she trusts are her closest friends, Trey and Corbin who are like brothers to her and Corbin’s wife Teagan. Only one other person has come close to that level of trust and that’s her “friends with benefits” Jonas. Well, he was,

I'm a avid Stacey Lynn reader. Her books range from fun and loose to angsty.

28 Dates is about Caitlin and Jonas and part of the Crazy Love series.

OK... I've never had a Friend with Benefits so I can't even imagine what that is like let alone your FWB suddenly saying they want more! Now... Like Caitlin I' had a heck of a time finding someone/commuting. Feelings are dangerous... and Caitlin agrees until suddenly Jonas isn't there anymore and it's awkward when they see each other and then along com

As I started reading I had to continue going why because in the beginning guy dumps (Jonah) her and goes out with someone else for 6 months, and I couldn't believe that I mean it wasn't a couple of dates it was 6 months!! when again guy claims that he loves her so much, gag me and of course she Caitlin has not had anyone else for said months, whatever...However that being said I decided to read a little more and then decided let me read even more and I was happy that I did by the end I decided t ...more

I absolutely love this series and I am really hoping that Trey gets the next book. This book is Caitlin and Jonah’s book. Caitlin and Jonah’s have a friend with benefits arrangement that works really well for them. One night Jonah’s lays his cards on the table and asks Caitlin for a relationship and she turns him down. Jonah moves on with someone else and Caitlin does not. Now 6 months later Caitlin is still lonely and missing Jonah a lot. Trey asks her to help him test his new dating app. She t ...more

I thought that 28 Dates was a cute romance between Caitlin and Jonas. This is the third installment of Stacey Lynn's Crazy Love series and it can definitely be read as a standalone.

I gave this book 4 stars because I expected a little more steam then what was in the book. the first couple of pages start off steamy but you don't really get steam in the middle of the book. I usually pick up these types of novels for the tension and the steam factors. This one was more of a story which I loved but

I have heard a lot about Stacey Lynn's books, specifically the books in the Crazy in Love series. When I saw 28 Dates on NetGalley I thought it was the perfect opportunity to try out a new author! 28 Dates is the third book in the Crazy in Love series but it can be read as a stand alone. I LOVED this book. It had me hooked from the prologue. I fell in love with Jonas immediately. Even though Caitlin hurt Jonas, I actually felt like I understood her and forgave her pretty quickly. I loved Caitlin ...more

Caitlin and Jonas have had a friends with benefits relationship for two years. Jonas wants more from her, but she isn't willing to even try. So Jonas meets someone else and seems to be in love.
Fast forward 6 months later and now where do you see Jonas and Caitlin? Well, Jonas is still dating Ashley... even though he feels something is missing. And Caitlin... well... she decides to try her friend/boss (Trey's) new dating app.

I enjoyed this one. Mostly. I didn't feel it was as good as other stori

**4.5 Stars**

I really enjoy this author's writing style and I really enjoyed these characters and this story. I loved that Jonas was a little more invested in his friends with benefits relationship than Caitlin, and that he wanted more since often times it's the other way around, so I enjoyed the role reversal.

My heart did break for Jonas though when he had to take a step back in order for he and Caitlin to eventually be able to find their way towards their HEA. This story does show that someti

Caitlin and Jonas have been friends with benefits for two years, when Jonas wants more, Caitlin rejects him because she doesn’t believe in happily ever after . Fast forward six months and Jonas hears that Caitlin is going to test a dating app her boss developed. He decides that this is the way to get Caitlin to fall for him, beyond their physical relationship. This book has a nice amount of humor, and I loved all of the disastrous dates that Caitlin had to endure. This is a fun, easy read that w ...more

Caitlin and Jonas have had a strictly casual sexual relationship for almost two years when he declares his feelings for her. She immediately ends things and he starts dating an adorable nurse. Did she just make the biggest mistake of her life? When her friend and boss asks her to beta test his new dating app she reluctantly agreed to start dating again, but little did she know that Jonas was going to use this opportunity to win her back.

I loved everything about this book except the truly awful c

Thank you to NetGalley & Random House for the ARC of 28 Dates by Stacey Lynn. When I requested this book I didn't look the author up to know it was #3 in the series. However after reading it I think it can definitely be read as a stand alone. The story is focused on the main characters, Jones & Caitlin and is a friends with benefits to lovers book. This may be the first time I've ever said that I didn't think the cover matched the content. The cover is very revealing and the content is m ...more

I really enjoyed this book. It was almost a second chance book.
Caitlin and Jonas were friends with benefits for two years. He wanted more. She couldn't give it to him. He left her to find it elsewhere. Fast forward to six months later.... he's not happy with his girlfriend. She's not happy being alone . Her friend Trey wants her to try out his new dating app. Jonas decides he need to get back with Caitlin but wants more....
Will they find their ways back to each other??

This is the 3rd book in the Crazy Love Series, I must say, I do love this series. I liked this book, but didn't love it. Caitlin was a tough sell for me. She doesn't want to fall in love, but is with Jonas and is in total denial. Because she can't or won't see it, she agrees to go on dates with other men. I have to be honest, I didn't think it was fair to Jonas.

This book is the 3rd in Lynn's "Crazy Love" series but can be read as a standalone. I actually didn't realize it was part of a series until about 25% in, when we started meeting side characters with history. I enjoyed Lynn's writing and characters so I'm adding the other 2 to my TBR list for sure!
I adore when the H knows he is in love with the h and we see him working to convince the h to date and fall in love and that is a big part of the story here. W

I normally enjoy books by this author and while I liked this one it wasn't my favorite. It was quick, easy read but for me I found it to be a bit predictable. I was disappointed at the way the relationship played out and that as a couple Caitlin and Jonas are not really together that long in the story. I had a bit of trouble connecting with Caitlin but can't quite put my finger on why.

If you enjoy this series and this author then you will probably like this book.
