Save The Date by Susan Hatler
Description from the publisher:
"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?"
Personally I thought this was a cute book. There is a good, solid, real story line with great characters and a little romance. Watching Kristen struggle after being betrayed was very realistic to me. She went through lots of emotions and it was a great change of pace. I liked how she was still counseling people even after she said she would not do that anymore. She could not just walk away from it.
There is not a lot of romance here. A few small "awww" moments but nothing big or spectacular but Ethan still gets your attention!
To me, the cover is kinda boring and not very catchy. To be honest, I would not have picked this up from the store because the cover did not call to me but I am glad I did. This was a very cute story.
