Today we welcome Boyfriend from Hell author, Jamie Quaid. She's also known as Pat Rice, New York Times bestselling author of more than thirty books. With Boyfriend from Hell, she's exploring her wild side, and I'm happy to say we're giving away a signed copy of the book today!
Since I’m not the sexy and dangerous Tina Clancy of BOYFRIEND FROM HELL, I’ve had my fair share of boring dates. But the date from hell that sticks in my mind never turned into a date at all as far as I’m concerned. I agreed to accompany a friend’s friend to a game I’d been wanting to see and for which he had tickets. My friend claimed the ticket holder was a doctor, so how bad could he be? Right.
I put on my best capris, my team shirt and cap, and my favorite platform-heel sandals that tied around my ankles. I’d had men on motorcycles nearly fall off their bikes scoping out those shoes. Or maybe scoping out the mini I usually wore with them. Whatever. Dr. How-Could-He-Be-Bad took one look at my cool shoes, dropped his jaw, and hauled me off to the nearest Good Feet store to be measured for decent walkers. Walkers! And he expected me to pay for them!
Needless to say, I walked all right, in my platform shoes, to the nearest bus stop. And it turns out the good doc was just a poorly paid resident in guess which specialty? Podiatry. Can’t send a man to hell for practicing medicine without a license, I guess, but I would have been tempted had I been Tina!
