Love at First Date (Better Date Than Never #1): Review
Better Date than Never Series, Book 2
Gina Hall is done with men who won’t commit. Ten years waiting for her ex to propose wasted her time. Never again. When her friend Kristen starts a game of Truth or Dare, she dares Gina to go on a date with Ethan, who’s amazing and total marriage material.
As Gina plans the going away party for office playboy Chris Bradley, she spontaneously initiates a game of Truth or Dare with him. When his turn comes around, he dares Gina to pose as his girlfriend to help get a flirty colleague off his back. Gina finds playing couple with Chris way too much fun.
Even though Gina and Chris are pretending, their relationship begins to feel painfully real. Fearing she might be falling for another fly-by man, Gina must focus on Ethan so she doesn’t make the same dating mistakes all over again.
Gina was in it for the long haul with her last boyfriend - for too long. He was a jerk that didn't want to get married after 10 years!! So she decides to find the perfect man to marry - and take as a date to Ellen's wedding. She is instantly set up on a blind date that she's just not too sure about. Meanwhile, the hottie at work has a new job so dating current co-workeds is now fair game - and he has his sights set on Gina.
This was hilarious! The way Gina and Chris talk to each other, especially at the beginning with their truth or dare game, was fantastic. These are the perfect length for a quick read before falling asleep happy and with a chuckle. I love how upbeat and positive the writing is and how real the characters are.
