Love at First Date by Susan Hatler
Ellen’s figured out that finding the right guy is all about compatibility. That’s why she’s signed up for Detailed Dating—the local online dating scene in Sacramento. Learning men’s preferences up front, plus a few weeks of email correspondence, has resulted in two candidates she’s excited to meet in person.
When Ellen’s best friend asks her to baby-sit her beloved pooch, dog-sitting leads to disaster and Ellen ends up at the local vet where she meets a man she can’t stop thinking about. Henry isn’t a logical choice, but Ellen suddenly finds herself signing up for a week-long doggy class to spend more time with him.
Now, Ellen has a choice: Go with one of the logical choices or let herself fall for the one man her heart seems to want.
What a cute short story. I think the thing I liked most about this story was how it made me laugh.Very well thought out and word flow was awesome.I think Ellen and Henry made a very cute couple.I found myself trying to figure out what job Henry did at night to make him so tired and have circles under his eyes.I had pegged him as a dancer for a strip club,then I thought...Well he could be a doctor working in an ER.
But nope I was wrong.
The date Ellen had with the guy who kept a chart on everything she said and did was to hilarious.I was cracking up.Who does that? I would have walked out on him on the first date.Ellen's character was fun and a little insecure about herself.
You really need to read this funny yet charming love story.I think you'll enjoy it.
