Overview

Adventurous and fun-loving Becca Daniels loves the rush of new experiences and is constantly pushing the envelope—trying everything from extreme sports, to wild hair colors, to skydiving. So when a broken leg grounds her temporarily, Becca doesn’t take the interruption well. Grumpy, restless, and at loose ends, Becca bristles one day when some of her Getaway Girls Book Club friends tease her about being commitment-phobic. To prove them wrong, Becca impulsively promises to accept a date with the next guy who asks her out; and to date him for three months or twenty-five dates—whichever comes first. Unfortunately, the first invitation comes from Ben—too “churchy” and definitely not Becca’s type. Determined to win the bet, however, the two embark on a hilarious series of dates that plunge the outspoken, purple-haired Becca into a sea of church potlucks and prayer meetings. Ultimately, the dating experiment opens Becca’s eyes to a new perspective on her life’s purpose and a new understanding of who’s directing her path—an epiphany that could lead to her biggest adventure yet.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Becca Daniels, 25, hops from job to job and relationship to relationship in search of new experiences. Accused of being commitment-phobic, Becca bets her friends that she can withstand 25 dates with the next man who asks her out. Imagine her surprise when that man turns out to be Ben, who's very involved with his church and committed to his faith. VERDICT Chick lit for the young Christian set. Walker's third series title (after Turning the Paige and Daring Chloe) is a fun story with well-developed characters.
