I received a copy of Truth or Date for an honest review.
Gina Hall has waited the last ten years for her longtime boyfriend Greg to pop the question. When push came to shove Greg finally admitted he never wanted to get married. Now Gina has been spending the last four months with Greg refusing to leave and eating cookie dough ice cream. Getting ready for her best friend Ellen’s wedding a friend suggests Gina go on a date with Ethan a man more than ready to be married. Fate has other plans though with Gina’s friend sets her up to help with an office friend’s leaving party the two end up playing Truth or Date and Gina agrees to go on a date with him as his friend. When the dates and late night texts become less and less an act and instead Chris revealing his true feelings for Gina and Gina running scared until she realizes she may have just found the right guy for her.
Truth or Date was a short story with great hilarious and realistic characters. Truth or Date was an engaging story that definitely had me on the edge of my seat to see who Gina ended up with. While she did have a couple dates with Ethan from the very beginning I was voting for Chris who was tall, smart, and very yummy. He was honest and definitely swoon worthy.
The only major complaint I have with Truth or Date was that it was so short. I think the story of Gina and Chris could have been so much more if only the story had been longer. Maybe I’m wrong but I feel as if the story of Chris and his connection with Gina was cut a tad short since it seemed like they only started talking in this book rather than throughout their career.
Overall I think Truth or Date was definitely a story about following your heart despite your past. I really enjoyed all the characters and the story as a whole. I wish there had been more to the story but considering it was a novella I guess I shouldn’t. All in all Susan Hatler definitely did a great job with this unique story and I can’t wait to read more of the Better Date Than Never Series. For readers looking for a quick romance this is the book for you.
