My rating: 4.5 out of 5
(Better Date than Never series, Book #4)
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?
This is a very very interesting read for me because it has Kristen, the most annoying in the Better Date than Never series that I've read and Ethan, my most favorite hero ever since I've read about him in Truth or Date.
It's not that I don't understand Kristen problems, but she really managed to annoy me almost throughout the whole book. It was really tiring to "hear" her deny her feelings for Ethan almost to the point that I wanted to reach in and pulled her out of my kindle (not that it's possible of course. Haha :D) She was so determined to ignore the obvious, yet still clinging to him deep inside and keep suspecting him to be with this or that woman when Ethan is wearing his heart on his sleeve. But doesn't matter how much I dislike her attitude, it simply made Kristen realistic (nobody's is perfect and everyone has a downfall sometimes) and besides, I was so relieved with her realization and honesty of her true feelings for Jake and Ethan that all my irritation toward her completely evaporated.
