Damian has been hiding out since the accident that scarred his face and lost him his career. His siter, Vanessa's, bakery is doing well as a new start up, but she needs a big break. When Damian answers the phone one afternoon he is shocked to hear a voice that calls to him in ways he didn't expect. Sophie works for her treat from Vanessa's bakery every Friday, especially when her boss keeps trying it on with her. When she calls, she gets a voice that definitely isn't Vanessa's, a voice that makes her want things she's never had. Anxious to shed her V-Plates, Sophie thinks that the voice on the end of the phone is just the one to do it...
Dating in the Dark was fun. I don't think I ever doubted that the characters were good together, or if they'd survive the drama; I just knew that they would. It made reading a little bit more lighthearted and less intense than some romances.
One thing I will say though; a virgin that didn't annoy me! Sophie didn't act overly virginified, she wasn't naive and she knew what she wanted, nor was she a virgin cause of some trauma, it was just a fact about her. So much so that she didn't make a big deal about losing it at all. It was refreshing and endeared Sophie to me.
The chemistry was definitely there between the two main characters, especially when they were in the dark. I did wonder how the dark from the title was going to come into the story, and actually I thought them dating without properly seeing each other was cute and well done.
There weren't actually many side characters in Dating in the Dark, and only Vanessa really got fleshed out, but I didn't feel as if I was missing anything as the main story line was consuming and dragged me in.
I enjoyed Dating in the Dark, it was fun and sweet!

Usually found with a pen in my hand, or my head in a book, I’m a contemporary romance author who also thinks fangs and wings are a very attractive accessory. A devourer of books from an early age, imagination was my best discovery. I spent much of my childhood stepping into wardrobes, searching for that magical snowy world where conversing with animals would be expected. When I wasn’t searching for those worlds, I wrote about them instead. My first step into the world of romance was when I stole sneak peeks into my nana’s books. I’m still in that world and I refuse to leave. I live in Staffordshire, UK, with my husband and three wonderful children. An avid reader and writer of romance, I strongly believe that words make the world go around. I like nothing more than to be swept away by the words on a page. I hope I can sweep you away too.
