Gina Hall is done with men who won’t commit. Ten years waiting for her ex to propose wasted her time. Never again. When her friend Kristen starts a game of Truth or Dare, she dares Gina to go on a date with Ethan, who’s amazing and total marriage material.

As Gina plans the going away party for office playboy Chris Bradley, she spontaneously initiates a game of Truth or Dare with him. When his turn comes around, he dares Gina to pose as his girlfriend to help get a flirty colleague off his back. Gina finds playing couple with Chris way too much fun.

Even though Gina and Chris are pretending, their relationship begins to feel painfully real. Fearing she might be falling for another fly-by man, Gina must focus on Ethan so she doesn’t make the same dating mistakes all over again.


The books in the Better Date than Never series can be read separately.

~ What I Liked About the Book ~

This book was fun! It was short and straightforward, and it had just the right amount of humor, romance, and drama. I loved how there were no dull moments in the story.

The characters were generally lovable. Their conversations were entertaining, and the romance was sweet. The ending was wrapped up neatly.

I also love that the books in this series are standalone, which justifies my reading them out of order.

~ What I Didn’t Like About the Book ~

The problem with quick reads is that there’s never enough going on for one to start feeling any emotional connection to the characters. This book felt like it was over way too soon. It was also very predictable, but thankfully not any less entertaining.

The one thing I truly disliked was how the game of Truth or Dare was used. I get that the game was supposed to be an important aspect of the story, but to me, it felt a little forced. It was weird how the characters just randomly sprung “Truth or Dare” in the middle of conversations.



Truth or Date is a sweet story for anyone who needs a quick romance fix without all the drama.
