I wanted a fun romance so this was next on my reading list. Its a light read, and pretty clear from the outset what's going to happen, but the journey is humorous and interesting and kept me entranced for a couple of hours.
Kristen, caught out her cheating boyfriend who turned out to be married. Happens doesn't it - but she's a relationship counsellor so it knocks her confidence in her job that she missed the signs of his deception, and she stops taking clients. She gets a temp job as a receptionist with her long time friends. I wanted to shake her when one of them, who's clearly deeply in love, gets a bit nervous as Kirsten says anyone , even those who seem on the surface to be loving, could be deceivers. Her friend then goes to extraordinary lengths to catch her boyfriend out, checking his phone and letters, and even cracking his PC password to see what he'd done on there, even though its clear to everyone else he loves her deeply. Kirstens' doubts could lead to them breaking up if he catches her, and her friend is definitely unhappy and all for nothing. Her other friend says she needs to back off and say everything is fine, but she's so soured by her failure to detect her boyfriends deception that she won't, and it causes some tense moments. I feel for Kirsten, but she's taking things to extremes and upsetting others, and its horrible to see just how this could happen. She's still regarded as an expert in relationships even though she doubts herself.
Ethan, he's just a lovely man, they get on so well and Kirsten has actually had a crush on him for ages, but she was with her boyfriend and he was in a relationship, so she felt it was fine to go out with him to places they were interested in but their partners weren't. Then she breaks up with her boyfriend and finds out actually Ethan is single....and she gets cold feet. What if she doesn't know him well, what if he is deceiving her too? He wants to date but she is scared, so they go out as if on a date but its an "as friends" date. Can he wear down her fears though and rebuild her confidence, and can she pick up her career, as temping in a relationship job is far below her skill level and not what she trained all those years for.
Its a sweet feel good HEA romance. Nothing deep or dark, just something to while away a couple of hours and make you feel that lives can be rebuild, love can win through and I finished it with a feeling of satisfaction and a smile on my face. Its 91 pages for £1.35 on kindle so reasonable VFM. Its not one for re reading for me but it was a gentle, fun, enjoyable read.

Better Date Than Never #4
I love this series, and this book was no exception. Kristen has always been the one that the girls turned to in a crisis and would provide sound advice, but that all changed after she found out her boyfriend was actually married. Second guessing every decision she was making when it came to relationships and men, she decided to give up on her job as a relationship counsellor and find a new dream job, though soon realises it isn't that easy. Enter her perfect match, Ethan, they enjoy each other's company, make each other laugh and have common interests but can Kristen overcome her fears of being hurt again and take a chance?
Ellen, Gina and Rachel are all in the background, reminding us why we love this group of friends, and although Kristen is trying to get away from giving advice, she keeps finder herself doing it (although not all the advice is great in retrospect). Well written, the story flows smoothly and I soon found myself turning page after page getting those warm fuzzy feelings I always attribute to this author that make me want to curl up with chocolate and/or ice cream and either a good book or my fave rom com.
Super sweet contemporary romance, each book in the series can be read as a standalone, but you'll soon fall in love with each character separately for different reasons so I highly recommend them all.
I was gifted an e-copy of this book through Amazon.com.
Kristen was a family and marriage therapist until she found out her "perfect" boyfriend was married and she was his mistress. Now she is on sabbatical as she can't trust herself with her own life decisions (much less her patients')! Her relationship with Ethan is perfect and friends only... Or is it? Can she trust him? Is he really interested in her? Is she ready to live and live again? Or will she really have to find a new career?
***This fun *short* chiclit series is suitable for young adult through adult readers who enjoy *clean* romance and offbeat humor :)
