Could a forgotten cutie be Katelyn's newest catch?

Katelyn Spears is a firm believer in the two-date rule. First dates are so awkward; every guy deserves a second chance. But a third? Not unless he's got serious Romeo potential.

Enter Tyler. Tyler thinks Katelyn's rule is too harsh. He dares her to go back through her Little Pink Book and grant a third date to all the two-date duds. Oh, and she should report back to the whole school via her newspaper column.
Standing by her policy (and determined to prove Tyler wrong), Katelyn makes a few phone calls. But will any of her old flames rekindle a romance?

Writing has been Kelly's passion since her sixth grade essay on how to not bake bread earned her an A plus. After cleaning up the bread dough that oozed on to the floor, she gave up bread making for good and turned to writing as a creative outlet. A graduate of the University of Delaware (English major, of course) she spends her days writing and teaching writing. Look for her next book, The Salem Witch Tryouts, from Simon Pulse in Fall 2006.

Let me start out by saying that the others reviewers are totally wrong. You have to look at all aspects of the book to really get a good review. Some parts, I will admit, are a little bit kiddish. Those parts, happen to be what people remember most. When writing about a book, we tend to want to write all about the bad, because that's what we remember the most. But when you really think about it, all the good outweighs the bad. I think it has a great plot, and can totally relate to alot of people who have trouble dating. I also think you can relate to liking someone who doesn't like you, but a totally hot other someone. All in all totally great.

This is a great book and in my opinion, one of the best in the Simon Romantic Comedy series. The characters were relatable and the plot was very funny and enjoyable. A must read for all fans of the simon romantic comedy series.

Katelyn writes the secret advice column for her college newspaper. Her handle (which has been the same for 100+ years) is Mother Hubbard and some of her readers are beginning to think that her advice is as outdated as her name. Calling for action, the student body is talking more and more about the column, which gives the editor some ideas. When Tyler learns that Katelyn has a creative rating system for dates, he challenges her to go back to one of the rejected boys and give him a third date chance. Katelyn thinks he's out of his mind, but she's forced to play along. Except she knows that she doesn't want to date anyone but Tyler and he seems to see her as just a friend. I <3 this series of books. I've read almost all of them, but somehow missed this one. I liked the fact that it takes place in college. It's a cute romance - and very fun.

well i have to say before hand, i really like the Simon Pulse romantic comedy series. I've already read several of them, and i have 2 more waiting to come in. But honestly, i didnt think this one was as great as some of the others. From the beginning, you pretty much can assume that Katelyn and Tyler are going to hook up eventually. And theres nothing wrong with that, it's just that you wait till the last 2 or 3 chapters until something finally happens...and then when it does, it's just sort of out of the blue. Besides that, the book did have some good morality and it was good, but i've read better.

I just recently started getting into the Simon Pulse Romantic Comedies and I have to say that I'm Glad I did. I started off with one of my favorite books now: Love Undercover and when I went to the bookstore to get another there were none! I walked around came back and to my delight saw the next book on my list: Getting to Third Date! It's about a girl named Katelyn who writes an Love advice column under the name Mother Hubbard who is hated by all on campus. She has her own crush, Tyler editor in chief who adore Sophia her junior year room mate! Mother Hubbard ratings are down until Tyler suggest that Katelyn use her little black (pink) book and go on 1 date with 3 second date losers and record it in her column. The dates will keep you laughing and the end may seem long but it's neccessary! Some parts are sad and made me angry, but love always perseveres no matter how many times you have to switch lovers. P.S. The first few pages are slow and some of the language and terms are hard to understand if you're a young reader, but once you push past the first two chapters you'll be hooked!
