When Delaney Collins’s fail-proof dating system fails completely, her best friends Summer and Josie take absolute control of her dating life through The Dating Intervention.

If she doesn’t start now—with her friends’ help—she’s in danger of ending up alone and lonely in a sea of men with stained neckties and cumbersome baggage.

“Hey, Summer,” Delaney said when she answered. She paused. “We’re okay, but some jerk rear-ended us at Twenty-Three and Pinecone. Some asshole in a pickup truck. And he just drove off.”
“Shit. Watch your language. Are the kids okay? Are you?”
“Yeah. We’re all fine. The van is fine. Now I see why Derek insisted on you buying this monstrosity. Not even a scratch. Anyway, we were stopped at the red light and he was trying to stop when he hit us. It’s icy, you know? Not a huge impact.”
“Thank goodness. Asshole. Did you call the police?”
“No. Should I?”
“Of course! Delaney, that’s a hit and run! It’s illegal. Call them, and call me back. Do you want me to come over there?”
“I have your car.”
“Right. Okay, call the police and call me back,” Summer repeated.
“What? Are you okay?”
“Yeah. Someone just pulled up. It’s a guy. He’s getting out. And oh – he is very good-looking. Very. Call you back.”
Dirty, scuffed brown cowboy boots, dusty ripped jeans, and a light blue t-shirt. So not my type, but so yummy.
“Hey,” the man said.
Delaney couldn’t stop herself from taking inventory: eyes the color of cobalt made contact with hers, and light stubble accentuated the planes of his face. He looked Greek, she thought, like Adonis. Longish, curly hair, full lips. He’d parked in the row behind Summer’s van, and now bent down to inspect the bumper. Could this be the first man to fill an empty slot on her dating roster?
“I saw what happened.” He straightened up. “Are you okay?”
“Oh yeah,” she drawled. “I mean, it’s fine,” she added quickly. “We’re fine. I checked the car, it’s fine.”
“Are you sure you’re okay?”
He squinted, leaned forward to look into her eyes. She nodded maniacally, all the while wondering what he’d look like as a bare-chested marble statue.
“It’s a big van. Full-size. And size does matter.”Oh, my God. Shut up, Delaney. Shut up. Snap out of it. This isn’t like you. You’re acting like a twelve-year-old girl. You’re acting like the twelve-year-old you.
