Review: Knowing Me Knowing You by Mandy Baggot

Goodreads Synopsis
Recently single mother Kate is struggling. Clinging on to a career and bringing up her 2 year old daughter leads to nights alone drowning her sorrows in the cheapest white wine she can find. Forced to employ Joel, a male escort, to accompany her to a professionals' dinner, Kate somehow ends up in the middle of a relationship contest, competing for a 100,000 prize alongside someone she barely knows.With her boss, the Lady Dragon Miranda, desperate for Kate to flounder, her tarot card reading child-minder trying to match-make and her ex-husband making her life a misery, can Kate keep her life on an even keel? And more importantly can she put her trust in a serial dater who used to be an underwear model?


First Thoughts After
I know you hear me say this a lot but I want more about this couple.  To give you an idea I want to know if the couple gets married did they have kids etc...... So yes I want more of Kate and Joel!
How Distracted Did I Get?
Kate is a single mom(mum depending where you're from) who is still wrapped up in her ex-husband.  She gets forced into finding a date for a work function and employs an escort, Joel.  Kate's "Lady Dragon" boss set her up to be in a couples game show.  Will Kate and Joel make it to the end in one piece and live happily ever after or will circumstances ruin everything???

Kate is a self proclaimed doormat but she is sweet and tough for all she's been through.  She does have self esteem problems but I don't think it's nothing that Joel can't help her along with.  
Joel is Mr. Hottie McTottie though he has issues from his past too.  Which makes him even more handsome and lovable!  I'd love to know who Mandy has in her head when she thinks about Joel?
How Many Baskets
Knowing Me Knowing You had me wrapped up so tight in the story I honestly didn't want to put the "book" down til I was finished with the story.  It was funny and dramatic.  Just watch out for a giant dove!  I gave Knowing Me Knowing You...........(to the left is Mandy dressed in the Dove costume!!!!  Isn't it awesome?????)
5 Baskets!!!!!!!
