Image source: Goodreads

After 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?

~ What I Liked About the Book ~

This book was really cute overall. It was short, sweet, and not dramatic at all. Despite being very, very predictable, it was never dull.

While I usually find short romances lacking in plot, I didn’t encounter that problem with this book. The plot was done well; everything simply fit perfectly. The author did a good job of wrapping things up and not dragging the story out of proportion.

I also loved the light tone the author used in the narration. It made reading this much more enjoyable.

~ What I Didn’t Like About the Book ~

Because of its length, there wasn’t enough going on for me to develop any kind of empathy with the characters. Kaitlin’s mother did manage to get on my nerves at least, so I wasn’t completely detached from the book.

Despite being a fun read, this book wasn’t very remarkable.



License to Date is a fun but predictable read. Lovers of light and fluffy romance will enjoy it.
