    Okay, I must say, THAT is how you write a short story I absolutely loved both Devin and Jay to death Both men were just too adorable for words Aaaaaand kinda stupid at the same time.There were also a few inconsistencies age wise, which did tend to drive me a bit bonkers Devin s sister got pregnant when she was 18 He s 3 years older than her It s been 10 years But ...

    3.5 starsThis was a fun story, well written and genuinely sweet How many bad dates does Devin, a 31 year old draftsman, have to suffer through on a bet he lost again to his sister when he meets his dream guy on the very first one Too bad Jay wants nothing to do with him Jay was burned by his last daddy and wants someone who s his peer While I enjoyed this story, I think the age gap was greatly exaggerated Based on my calculations, Devin was 31, and Jay maybe 22, old enough to drink 3.5 starsThis was a fun story, well written and genuinely sweet How many bad dates does Devin, a 31 year old draftsman, have to suffer through on a bet he lost again to his sister when he meets his dream guy on the very first one Too bad Jay wants nothing to do with him Jay was burned by his last daddy and wants someone who s his peer While I enjoyed this story, I think the age gap was greatly exaggerated Based on my calculations, Devin was 31, and Jay maybe 22, old enough to drink Devin was hardly daddy material, and Jay s stubborn stance on the issue grew a little tiresome I did want to knowabout Jay s family and background, besides the crappy ex And for all the mention of Devin helping his nephew, the nephew never makes an appearance Even so, I liked this novella I liked t...

    4.5 Stars Okay, I m going to be honest with you there wasn t anything in this story that I haven t already seen in a thousand Hollywood romcoms Seriously There was a meddling sibling, an implausible scenario used to bring two unlikely people together, some snark, some laughs, lust at first sight, pining, someone getting drunk, denial of feelings due to past baggage, the Big Realization, and a Big Declaration of Feelings which naturally leads to scorching hot sex and a sweet as can be 4.5 Stars Okay, I m going to be honest with you there wasn t anything in this story that I haven t already seen in a thousand Hollywood romcoms Seriously There was a meddling sibling, an implausible scenario used to bring two unlikely people together, some snark, some laughs, lust at first sight, pining, someone getting drunk, denial of feelings due to past baggage, the Big Realization, and a Big Declaration of Feelings which naturally leads to scorching hot sex and a sweet as can be happily ever after And yet And yet I don t give a flying fuck that Five Dates isn t original because I fell for Devin and Jay hard and fast I swear, it only took about 5 pages to have me wrapped around Devin s little finger and grinning like a fool Both characters were incredibly sweet, average, and relatable They were just good guys and, unlike a large portion of...
