I've read a couple of the books in this series and really enjoyed them, but I completely fell in love with this boxed set! The stories can stand alone, but characters from other books do make appearances, so don't be surprised if you know how a relationship does or doesn't turn out. The set starts out with a bang with Jill's story in Driven to Date. There is so much chemistry going on, almost right from the first page. Jill is a lawyer and when she loses out on a promotion, she grabs a guy at her friend's wedding to try and impress a potential employer. Ryan doesn't mind going along with the game. Jill is very committed her to work and has a list to accomplish by a very young age. Ryan is more laid back--he still gets his work done, but balances work with family and fun. They're good for each other, but sometimes being too opposite has it's disadvantages. I love how the story is told in first person--it felt more intimate that way. Like I said, the romance is sizzling clean and I enjoyed the way the events unfolded, especially the ending. ***** Book 8, Up to Date, is Ginger's story, told in first person. She's got a talent for decorating, but is hesitant to break out on her own, until fate almost forces her to. In the previous book, she met Greg, but wasn't willing to have a long distance relationship. When he moves back to town, she realizes that she has to overcome her fears or spend a lifetime alone. I love the references to Gilligan's Island--so much fun! I enjoyed Ginger's personality--she's more serious, especially about relationships and the future. As much as she tries to fight it, she's got sparks going with Greg and he's willing to be patient with her, but won't wait around forever. Ginger has fears and expectations to overcome and with that, big decisions to make. I loved the journey! ***** Deja Date, Book 9, is Melinda's story, told from her point of view. Melinda is a very "perfect" character, one who used to work with Ginger, but they were both laid off at the same time. She's intimidating. Because of her past, she's very disciplined and controlled, which results in her coming off as perfect, which scares the other girls off. Her dad passed away years before in a freak accident and only now does she discover a Carpe Diem list--one that she must do before she can get her inheritance. As with the other stories, Melinda has a lot to do in order to discover herself, get over her fears, and really live life. She goes back to the bakery where she worked when she was younger and sparks are rekindled with the owner's son, Nate. The problem is, they're too different--he's adventurous and she's boring. I loved the chemistry! Ms. Hatler is a master at weaving those clean, yet toe-tingling moments and I enjoyed every single one of them. ***** Last, but not least, we get Mary Ann's story in Date and Dash. Mary Ann is the impulsive, crazy, and fun younger sister of Ginger (get the Gilligan's Island references yet?). Mary Ann makes a mad dash to an auction to buy her Grammy's bracelet that her mom sold off years ago and gets into a car accident. Good looking, but stuffy, Trevor makes things complicated for her and instead of bidding on the bracelet, she bids for a spot for a new reality show...and Trevor's her date! Now they have to convince the audience they're in love...but it may not be an act. I love the way Mary Ann and Trevor come to learn more about themselves, Mary Ann especially. It is possible to be content with
Absolutely LOVED this box set by Susan Hatler! I have read most of her books and loved this set just as much. I found these stories to be sweet, romantic, flirty and fun! I would give more than five stars if I could!
Better Date than Never series by Susan Hatler was an enjoyable read. There is 1 book and 3 novellas included in this boxed set. I have read each one in this series and have never been disappointed. Any of these books can be read as a standalone but it's been fun for me to read each one as they have been released because I have the opportunity to see "old friends" from the previous books and get some insight into how their lives are progressing since I saw them last. Jill, Ginger, Melinda and Mary Anne are young women who are struggling a little in their current jobs. They also each have some emotional baggage from their pasts. Each one of them grow so much in their stories and meet the men who might be the one man they have been dreaming of. There is love, humor, a few tears and satisfying HEAs for each one of them as Jill, Ginger, Melinda and Mary Anne face their problems. Their friends are there to cheer for them and give some good advice along the way. I enjoyed spending time with all of them. I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review. The opinions expressed are strictly my own.
