Here it is! My new, favorite, hot off the press, short romance. Usually with short stories I am left wanting more but Love at First Date left me completely satisfied. Well, I maybe could have used a smooch more kissing (wink, wink), but honestly this book was awesome. I loved it. It was full of happy smiles.

This book goes along with My Last Blind Date (which I also loved) . It was fun to catch a glimpse of Rachel from that book as well as get to know Ellen more in this book. I love the setting in Sacramento. (hello, Sacramento!) That's my home stomping grounds. Now a days, when I get to Sacramento, I know I'm almost home.

One of the things I love about Susan's writing is that it just feels real. The character's dialogue and interactions are easy and comfortable reading. There is humor and there is sizzle. Perfect, right? If you want an short evening read to curl up with, look no further.

Content: Clean (no swearing, no sex)

LOVED THIS BOOK! Very nice love story, wasn't corny either. Didn't sound like something that would never happen in real life, either.

Better Date than Never

In Love at First Date, the first book in Susan Hatler's Better Date than Never series, Ellen is thirty and wants to find true love. After her mother's past relationship failures, Ellen wants to use scientific methods to find the man of her dreams. Given her abandonment issues, Ellen relies on questionnaires and virtual matching to take the uncertainty out of romance.

When Chester the Chewing Canine chomps into the contents of Ellen's purse, she panics. Her friend Rachel adores the dog, and will kill Ellen if he overdoses on her lip gloss. Thankfully, Chester did not chew her cell phone. Ellen frantically careens to the local animal hospital, hacking dog in tow.

Ellen wants to force order onto chaos. She finds her objective criteria and scientific methods exploding in their own version of a big bang when she meets a handsome, non-vetted stranger over Chester's hacking and trails of drool.

The short work is entertaining and fun. The characters are believable and likeable. Rachel, Ellen's best friend, is obsessed with her dog's mental health and happiness. Ms. Hatler also offers humor. For example, one of Ellen's suitors invites her out to the Chinese restaurant Wok N’ Roll.

A cute short romance about looking for love in all the wrong places only to find it right in front of you where you least expected. People can be too much alike or think they want something they do not. Sometimes compatibility is over rated we can be too compatible or think we want one thing when in fact it isn’t what we want at all.

Elle felt she needed to find someone compatible she signed up on Detailed Dating site. She did her profile and got her dates. The dates were all wrong she found what she really wanted was what she didn’t want at all.

This was a cute little read that is a funny clean reads about finding the mate of your dreams at first site. If you want an easy fast fun read this is the book for you.

I totally enjoyed this short story. The storyline was well thought out & the charaters fully developed. Ellen & Henry made for a cute couple. I tried to keep guessing what Henry did for a living since he came to class.with.circles under his eyes. Never guessed what he turned out to be.

Cute, fun, light read that's well worth the time and price. The characters are well-developed, realistic and funny. I loved Ellen's internal thoughts and quips. She has a great head on her shoulders--very much a friend I would love to have coffee with. Laughed out loud at some of the situations she found herself in. The H was soo sweet and thoroughly romantic. Will be reading more by this author!

This was definitely chic lit. Nothing shocking, nothing exciting, nothing explicit. There were funny moments and the story was realistic. The story was good, not great or awesome. If you are short on time and want to read something that is predictable, then this book is for you. If you like to have your heart pound and lose your breath for one reason or another, then skip this puppy.

Susan Hatler has a knack for writing books that draw me in from the very first page! I love her writing style, it flows easily and never has me backtracking. Love At First Date is a cute novella length story about Ellen who thinks she has everything figured out when it comes to dating and compatibility! She soon realizes that you can't plan love and it happens when and where it will. Who will she choose? Her match that is compatible on paper, or the one that makes her heart skip a beat? Find a few hours and get cozy, Love At First Date is a fun read that you won't want to put down! It is funny and romantic as well! (Ellen loves shoes; who doesn't love shoes?! I could relate to her just through her love of shoes alone!) Four stars!

I received a copy of this book for free. This is my honest review.
