My name is Courtney Jane Salinger…
and I’m sick of games.

Sick of the Friday night bar-scene-cum-meat-market.
Sick of the boy-girl, man-woman, mars-venus, flirtation-without-expectation, game-playing nonsense.
Sick of awful dates and one-night stands, booty calls and guys who don’t call back, mixed messages or NO messages and—and—and…I’m sick of all of it.

I’m done.
I just can’t do it anymore.
It’s too hard, and worse: little by little, it’s making me hard.
It’s breaking my heart.

What DO I want?
That’s easy.

I want a house in suburbia with a white picket fence.
I want babies to buckle into a minivan.
But most of all, I want to be married.
I want a husband.

So I’ve made an important decision: I’m making my escape from the dating world and the single life.
I’ve filled out my application on and I’m putting my fate into the hands of experts.

Is it a little scary?
I mean, I have no idea who I’ll end up with. After all, I’m planning to marry a complete stranger.

But between you and me?
I can’t wait.
Being arranged can’t possibly be worse than being single.
Can it?

My Review

Today’s dating world is not what it used to be, and while we can thank dating websites and apps for a lot of those changes, due to their ease of use and a plethora of choices, single people have also changed the dynamics of dating, swiping left or right, looking for nothing more than a one-night stand, and not settling for one woman when there seems to be a never-ending supply. 

What’s the complete opposite of the dating games that Courtney Jane Salinger is no longer willing to play…how about a website called where you submit an application and let the experts do their arrange marriage magic.

Can you imagine how desperate Courtney is to take such an extreme step…I mean, it shouldn’t be that difficult to find a happily ever after, but it sure seems like it is  and what’s even more mind boggling is the fact that what Courtney wants is what everyone deserves in life.

But here’s the thing, in any kind of arrangement, there’s a bevy of things that can go wrong, which means that even in an arranged marriage, there are no guarantees, even after the decision is made and the journey begins, and with some interesting outside interference, it’s unclear if Courtney made the right or wrong decision, even when everything is said and done.

I haven’t read a Katy Regnery romance story in quite some time, so when I saw the sign-up for an advanced copy of Arrange Me, I instantly filled out the form. I love Regnery books because they’re unique, not only in their concepts and content but also in the paths she takes her characters on, and I’m excited that Courtney’s story will continue in Arrange Us.
