#Review: Save the Date, by @SusanHatler

Save the DateTitle: Save the Date (Better Date than Never #4)
Author: Susan Hatler
Rating: 5/5 stars

“Kristen knows men hide things. Case in point, her last boyfriend turned out to be married. Just like anyone else, Kristen is devastated. However, since Kristen evaluates people for a living, her ex’s duplicity has her searching for a new career as well as swearing off men.

Touring history museums with her sexy friend Ethan doesn’t count, because he has a girlfriend, and has only shown friendly interest in Kristen. He even helps with her career counseling tasks. Although Kristen has a secret crush on Ethan, spending time with him is safe. Until she discovers he’s actually single. Gasp. And now he’s flirting with her, too.

Suddenly, Ethan is way too dangerous. Not to mention tempting. Sure, he seems like sixty shades of perfect, but how’s a girl with bad judgment supposed to detect what skeletons he has in his closet?” (description from Goodreads)

It’s been awhile since I’ve read one of Susan Hatler’s books, and now that I’ve read another, I know I’ve been missing out.

A few years ago when I read my first few Hatler books, I enjoyed them because they were short, simple, yet romantic stories. They’re perfect when I’m in the mood for a light read but also need enjoyable characters and great writing. With Save the Date I received just what I was looking for.

The Better Date than Never series follows characters with connected lives, yet even with the time gap between the last book in the series I read and now, I don’t feel like I was out of the loop. It was easy to jump into the story and discover the characters and storyline (which if I remember right are mostly new, with only a little back story mentioned from a previous book).

I liked what Hatler did with Kristen and her story. It only added to the enjoyment when the romance aspect popped up in the story, and even then it wasn’t easy to predict exactly what was going to be the outcome.

So as I said, this was another great Hatler read. It was quick and sweet and just what I needed to help me in a current book funk. I won’t be waiting too long to read more from the series now that I’ve had another taste.
