‘Rhinestone Flip Flops’

April 7, 2009



TROY, Idaho, April 7 /PRNewswire/ — The world of dating can be an overwhelming and emotionally draining experience sometimes. The world of blind dating takes that to a whole new level. The new novel “Rhinestone Flip Flops” (published by AuthorHouse), by first-time author Ari Dean, tells the captivating story of a perfect love that started with a not-so-perfect blind date.


Josie Borday and Brett Becker are set up on a blind date by Josie’s co-worker, who also happens to be the long-time girlfriend of Brett’s brother. Over the years, Josie has become a bit pessimistic about the dating process. Josie’s co-worker swears that Josie and Brett are a “perfect match,” so she agrees to the give the date a shot. This will be one last effort, on Josie’s part, to placate the friends who constantly try to find happiness for her. Much to her surprise (and that of everyone pulling for her) the date is a success.


With a mixture of uncertainty, comedy, drama, and of course romance, Josie lands in a happy place. Josie and Brett embark on a journey that neither of them had ever expected. Their time together is unpredictable, spontaneous, flirty and fun. Unexpected twists and turns help make their budding relationship strong and resilient from the moment they meet. “Rhinestone Flip Flops” is a story filled with hilarious, heartwarming moments that are sure to draw in readers from the moment they crack the cover. Dean writes:


“She has exactly forty-five minutes to get ready — including the impromptu pedi she so desperately needs in order to wear the shoes she’s chosen. Why is it that, no matter how many times I put myself through this last-ditch, I refuse to open a Match.com or eHarmony account scramble … I still can’t get it through my head that I may not find Mr. Right this time either? … Like Pink Satin toenails are the sure way to get a man’s attention. Sure they are. … Whatever, no time for doubt! Just get your ass ready! What if, this time, he is Mr. Right? I can’t keep him waiting now, can I?”
