Licence to Date
(Better Date than Never #6)
by Susan Hatler

officialsynopAfter discovering her fiancé cheated on her, Kaitlin is focused on two things: remodeling her new home and avoiding men at all costs. But her friends insist she get back in the driver’s seat and date again. They strike a hard bargain and agree to paint her house if she goes on five dates.

Anxious to get the paint job started, Kaitlin schedules five dates in five days, but her plan falls to pieces when a sexy bartender at her venue-of-choice makes her swoon. Even though he observes each of the dates from afar, she can’t help but want him to come a little closer.

The last person she should fall for is a mysterious bartender with a sinful smile, but Paul makes her want to take risks again. Will the charming man with electric blue eyes break her heart or will he prove to her that a license to date is what makes life worth the drive?

officialreviewAfter a dissastisfied night with a succubus sucking souls, I thought I wouldn’t be able to sleep peacefully knowing there are other books that needed my attention. With that, I immediately got my Kindle and searched for Susan Hatler’s books. And Licence to Date popped up on my screen. Whoopeedo!

Kaitlin is busy remodeling her new home while her friends Ginger and Kirsten urge her to go back to the dating pool. They strike a deal with her. They’re gonna paint her whole house for free, provided that she’ll go on a date with her realtor and four other guys within 5 days. Tempting offer, indeed, especially when she’s a little tight on the budget. So for the free labor, she gives them the deal.

Five men for five dates within five days. Not bad, right?

Well, let’s see. First date, realtor Chace McDermott arrives late – too late that he sees Kaitlin flirting with the bartender instead.

Second date – with an architect that her mom approves – has Kaitlin hanging up and rappelling down the walls of Goeffries Hotel – again with the bartender instead of the real date. Oh man!

Third date – with someone her co-worker has set up – oh, should I even tell how the date ends? Kaitlin thinks of the bartender (who later becomes the receptionist ) all the time while she’s  on the date. Disaster, again.

What’s up with he bartender anyway? You’ll be surprised when you finally realize who Paul the bartender slash receptionist is!

I won’t tell what happened to other dates that succeeded. But here’s what I’m gonna tell you. Licence to Date is a very exciting and funny read, it made me forget about the previously forgettable book I read a while back. Kaitlin and her naivete is so on point, and Paul the bartender is a darling. The kind of man I’d be happy to date, with or without licence. Susan Hatler has just made me a one happy girl once again!
