Rachel, her best friend and office mate gets a date and asks her for a favor - doggie-sitting her dog Chester, who recently chewed on her beautiful black boots. When Chesters seems to have swallowed something, she takes the dog to the nearest vet and meets Henry, the most mysterious man she has ever known. He has recently rescued a dog and names her Kenzie and they're doing an obedience training. He is good-looking, smiles a lot, helps her with training and is fun to be with. What's not to love? Ellen's clearly smitten with the guy, but she doesn't want anything to do with him because he's a complete stranger. She doesn't like asking too many questions about a guy, unless it's all stated in Detailed Dating.
Until Ellen finally gets to date her matches. Until all she thinks about is Henry and his mysterious ways. Until she learns from Rachel that he's not going to get in touch with her again. Bummer!
I love this short story so much. I wish it was longer, though. I love Ellen and her eccentric ways and her naivety. Sure, she's quite closed-minded sometimes, heck, she even annoys me with her compulsive thinking and over-the-top assumptions about Henry. But there's something about her that I found charming about her. I like how she stands her ground and balances her choices, I like how she acts like an awkward teenager when she's around Henry. She's a doll!
I'm liking short stories lately. They satisfy me at some point and makes me think outside the box. I've read some books by Susan Hatler and I always find myself laughing and feeling like a lovestruck idiot in the end, but I don't care. I gotta hand it to Susan, she's the queen of short rom-coms and she deserves it.
Ellen needed someone to be compatible with her. She does not want to emulate her mother who's always on a different man that's not compatible. She took a whole month to narrow her online dating prospects down to a list of just two. When her dog-sitting for a friend went very wrong, she met Henry at a local vet who saved the not-her-dog. Ellen knew she must know more about Henry, so she signed up for dog obedience school using the not-her-dog. Now Ellen is conflicted... should she date the ones she deemed compatible like her head dictates... or should she go for Henry like her heart dictates? And what happens when her disguise was exposed?
Ah, light-hearted rom-com that's short, sweet, and NOT insta-lust. If you need a "pick-me-up" that's not full of angst, Susan Hatler delivers. The characters are not very deep, but they don't have to be.
Ellen barely knew her farther. She lived through her mother's two disastrous marriages. She refuses to make the same mistakes. So online dating is her thing... It has to work... Doesn't it? She will be happy as long as she plays it safe! Will one of her "smart" choices make her happy? Or is she going about this in the wrong way?
***This fun *short* chiclit series is suitable for young adult through adult readers who enjoy *clean* romance and offbeat humor :)
Everything was going great until she is forced to watch her best friends dog. When Ella believed the dog is choking due to eating something from her purse, she takes him to the Vet only to stumble into an Obedience class for dogs and a very handsome guy named Henry who had just saved the little pups life. Now Henry tests all logical that she had set out for herself when it comes to love and finding the right man.
Cute quick read. It was a short story, which was sad really but I did thor
oughly enjoy it! It was done in first person, in this case we get into Ella's mind and I did enjoy her tone. I thought she was funny and amusing. I think I also understand where she was coming from with the way she had approached dating and meeting the right man. Of course Ella learns that nothing is always what it seems and that compatibility is only a small part of meeting the right person. It was entertaining watching Ella go through the dates and how each and one of them had thought of something about love that she did not know before.
I did really like Henry, of course I was with Ella on the same page when he wouldn't answers her questions they way she wanted them too. But at the same time, Ella evaded direct questions as he had evaded giving her direct answers. Still, there was attraction between them and the gift he gave her was quiet thoughtful!
Sure this book has a bit of an insta-love theme going on, but it's forgivable as it really was just a quick, clean adult romance. Quiet enjoyable that left a smile on my face.
