Melani Blazer’s “Brand Name Dates”

Brand Name Dates By Melani Blazer


Jill Anthony, newspaper photographer and self-imposed loner, has just had her life turned topsy turvy by her meddlesome mother and roommate. She can’t understand why everyone thinks she needs to date to have a fulfilling life. Her career is good and she is content.

But then work offers her the chance to get the monkey off her back. Fake dates—just for research purposes. No commitment, just information. Suddenly, men are like clothes—fabric, size, color, cut, even care instructions can all be matched to her impression of her date’s personality.

When it’s over, she intends to go back to life as it had been. If only it is that easy. She doesn’t anticipate finding a piece of clothing she can’t leave behind. And she doesn’t expect the price tag to be so darn hefty…

My wonderful friend Melani Blazer wrote this awesome chick lit book a few years ago and it’s just now being released today. I remember brainstorming this idea with her and laughing about how men were like trying on different clothes. Some men were comfortable cotton and some were scratchy wool. And the book just sailed right out of her muse from there.

It’s hip, laugh-out-loud funny, charming and I just fell in love with the story. I hope you do too. It’s available at Cerridwen Press in e-book format and I encourage you to read it. You won’t regret it. Oh, and Benny is mine. 😉

Love you, Mel
