The Three Chapter Test was created due to the mountain of books I have in my Kindle, and because in contrast to that, there’s so little time. So, in order to get to the books that I want to read, or that intrigue me and capture my imagination and attention, I decided to do a Three Chapter Test on the books. Meaning, I must read at least the first 3 chapters or 17% of the book, whichever comes first, in order to make a more or less informed judgement on whether to continue or to abandon.
So, here goes:
Title: Bad Bachelor
Author: Stefanie London
Publisher: Sourcebooks Casablanca
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Buy Link: Amazon
- Before I even got to Chapter 1, I was hooked! There’s some sort of Prologue written by someone behind the Bad Bachelors App. It’s both funny and intriguing, piquing my interest at once.
- The hero and heroine haven’t met yet by the end of Chapter 3, but already I’m anticipating their meet-up. Which brings me to the 3rd point below…
- The author’s writing is engaging and interesting. Normally, if the main characters haven’t met by the second page of Chapter 1, I’d be itching to rush the pages until I get to the page where both of them are on-scene or else ditch the story and read another one. But not here! It only proves that both Darcy and Reed lead full, interesting lives, even before they met “the one”.
- I love the use of technology in the dating process. It’s very modern and up-to-date, especially in today’s world. Plus, I love all things geek, so I’m definitely digging it.
