Her real life is no fairy tale and she's no Cinderella.

After what her ex-husband did to her, heiress Henna Colombo is a man-hater, not a dater. And the thing she hates most of all is the fairytale of falling in love.

Why does her father and her new wicked stepmother insist she keep looking for her prince? And why at The Perfect Date? Only the most pathetic losers use a dating service.

She's fine being single. As far as Henna's concerned, the love god can take his diaper-wrapped butt and arrows elsewhere. Cupid can also shove those arrows where the sun don't shine if he thinks for one second that someone like Vassal Milano is her perfect man.

Vassal's perfect alright--perfect at sneaking around behind her back. Just like her ex, she caught him kissing someone else.

No... she didn't confront Vassal about it. Why would she put herself through all that heartache and torture again? Outside of a few unforgettable kisses, she and Vassal were only friends anyway. Cupid's arrow missed her that time--thankfully.

As for the whole dating thing and looking for any sort of honorable Prince Charming? Forget it. No such man exists. Luckily, Henna doesn't care.

I just didn't like it at all. The characters and the plot were unlikable and uninteresting. I am going to stop here because it's the nicest I can say and don't want to be cruel.

McDonald brings a happy ending to Henna Columbo. After a disastrous marriage, Henna cannot open herself up to another man without complete and full confidence in his trustworthiness. Her soon-to-be stepmother, the unflappable Georgia drags Henna to the Perfect Date to find, well the perfect date. She dated a few nice men, but none who set her soul on fire like her kissing friend Vassal. This is a great romance that will make you believe in true love all over again. I highly recommend this book to contemporary romance fans. I voluntarily read and reviewed a complementary copy of this book.

If you had kept up with this series like I have, you might have been surprised that Never Look Back, Book 7 by Donna McDonald is the wicked witch of Cincinnati’s story. Of course, I never really thought that of Henna, but I certainly never would have wanted her for my step-daughter either. Still it is wonderfully funny and hopeful that Henna could have a happily ever after too. The Dating Agency is in full mode which is always a sight to behold; a dating service at its best. The quirkiness of the characters especially Georgia and “Hollywood” add to the amusement of the read. I especially enjoyed seeing how a former adversary of Georgia’s become a close friend. Then the romance in this story is special, maybe more so because Henna has been so hurt and broken by betrayal. Finely written, with spirited characters and lively, feisty dialogue, it is extremely entertaining. It is now my favorite of the series. Until Never Look Back, Never Is A Very Long Time had always held that title. The publisher/author gave me a complimentary ARC of the book which I voluntarily chose to read and reviewed. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

I remember Henna from Georgia's book. She and Georgia were so snarky and funny. When I started this book, my first thought was to wonder if Henna could be any more bitter if she tried. Hannah's mini metamorphosis was an interesting and humorous journey. Vassal and Jenna had such great chemistry. I enjoyed their banter. I want to say more, but I don't want to give anything away. This was a fast paced, snarky, sometimes funny, sexy read with a surprise or two. Definitely 4.5 stars. A quick read that ended all too soon. I voluntarily read and reviewed the Advanced Reader Copy of this book.

I love this series. Each book is new and fresh but we still get to visit old friends. Sassy Georgia has decided to help two damaged hearts, one being her stepdaughter, heal and find love again. Henna and Vassal already had the chemistry but not the trust. Once Georgia gets involved there is no defense. Add a sassy dog named Sophie and it makes for a great afternoon read. Enjoy!

To say I love this series is an understatement – the stories about couples who are not very young are hilarious and totally relatable! In Never Look Back, the couple IS younger than the others in the series and you know what? It is STILL hilarious. And touching. And sweet. And it kicks butt, too! There’s no easy way to explain the heroine, Henna Colombo. She comes across as tough as nails, a man-hater, and all around grumpy person. Really grumpy. At heart, she is just a tiny bit broken inside, and she needs to overcome all the things that have happened to her before she – really – will allow herself to be happy. Ms. McDonald tells a great back story that I cannot begin to explain. You’ll have to read it for yourself. Her almost stepmother, who is hilarious, and her father insist that she goes to The Perfect Date, a dating service run by said stepmother’s daughter (and the backbone of all the stories in the series.) OMG, the video she does for the service? I was rolling on the floor. While all this is going on, the hero shows up in the story, Vassal Milano, someone Henna knows all too well. Again, you need to read the story to get the connection(s). He, too, has a back story that he needs to overcome but his role is mainly to break thru Henna’s walls. He’s a great guy…maybe just a tad clueless (okay, a LOT clueless!)…but he always shows his feelings for those around him: family, friends, and Henna. Great book, funny and touching, and often hilarious. It is a standalone but we get to read about previous characters and enjoy the hilarity that ensues. Highly recommend this book and series.
