    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 he s 35 That math adds up to 31 , so I wasthan confused But I stuck with 31 vs 35, because large age differen 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 he s 35 That math adds up to 31 , so I wasthan confused But I stuck with 31 vs 35, because large age differences are a huge turn off for me Jay worked with his boss for 3 years Then, later, he worked with her for 5 years Uhh, which is it And how old is Jay exactly We re never told.For a book soooooo concerned with ages, those inconsistencies annoyed the shit out of me.However, in the end, my mind just went with Jay being 23 and Devin being 31, which wasn t that much Fuck it Tell me for sure or I get to pick the ages myself P That aside, I wouldn t have changed much about the story, especially not the unexpected toppy ending, so I d give it 4.5 stars

    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 Dev 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 that Jay wasn t stereotyped as a typical Hispanic twink I loved the chemistry between the two MCs, the awesome reunion scene at the end that hearkened to every 80s movie ever scripted An epilogue would have been ever so nice, though Five Dates was cute, a bit steamy, and totally entertaining, a great addition to the event

    That was delightful Refreshingly well written, adorably romantic, and the scene in the car was unexpectedly hot A single fingertip traced up the back of Devin s hand until it hit the bare skin of his wrist.The scritch of a nail against his wrist shot electricity up his arm until it bounced around his insides, making every inch of him twitch and then freeze when Jay s fingertip slid under the hemmed edge of Devin s glove.Jay stilled too, that one trespassing finger pushed deep under the supple l That was delightful Refreshingly well written, adorably romantic, and the scene in the car was unexpectedly hot A single fingertip traced up the back of Devin s hand until it hit the bare skin of his wrist.The scritch of a nail against his wrist shot electricity up his arm until it bounced around his insides, making every inch of him twitch and then freeze when Jay s fingertip slid under the hemmed edge of Devin s glove.Jay stilled too, that one trespassing finger pushed deep under the supple leather.Good god it s one finger and a wrist and yet it has me all worked up Thank you very much, Amy Jo Cousins

    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 the female population, I LOVE the good guys So was this book earth shattering in its originality No But it was pure cute, fluffy escapism that made me genuinely happy as I was reading it I can t recommend it highly enough for someone looking for a total mood booster

    Let s get to the pointHow can a book be a 4 star read for the first half and then be just ok the second half I mean, why I was really enjoying this one but suddenly the chemistry was gone, the butterflies abandoned my stomach and this was just another book that I will probably forget soon.And pls don t take me wrong, the writing was very good, the characters were very likeable and even though some situations were not real you ll still have a good time reading it Hope you enjoy x

    After a lost bet, Devin has to go out on five dates with guys that his sister has picked She made an online profile for her brother, using an old picture of him, when in his body description was still included a six or even eight pack.Devin at first is against the idea, because he s not into dating, especially after learning about the picture that she used for his profile.It s obvious that he doesn t look like that any, since he s not a boy, but a man The first date that agreed to go out After a lost bet, Devin has to go out on five dates with guys that his sister has picked She made an online profile for her brother, using an old picture of him, when in his body description was still included a six or even eight pack.Devin at first is against the idea, because he s not into dating, especially after learning about the picture that she used for his profile.It s obvious that he doesn t look like that any, since he s not a boy, but a man The first date that agreed to go out with him is Jay, a hot younger guy who doesn t want to go out with older men, especially after his previous failed relationship So, what happens when they meet and Jay realizes that his date is a fraud And what happens when Devin is supposed to keep up with his bet and the rest of the dates, when his mind has been stolen by his first date This was a short, fun read, with a too sudden ending for my taste I wish we had a little bit , even though I can t say I was impressed The characters were likeable, although there were moments that they acted like teenage girls Since this was my first M M I can t be certain, but I hope that not every male acts like that in M M stories This certainly won t be my last M M read

    Well, look at that, the first foray of an HQN published M F author into MM and I loved it Usually, when I read about age gap stories not a frequent occasion but I do read them once in awhile , it would be the older guy who would feel insecure about pursuing a relationship The younger guy would be the onedetermined The situation here was rather different Jay just walked out of a relationship with an older guy who looked down upon him Jay didn t want another daddy even if Devin was a Well, look at that, the first foray of an HQN published M F author into MM and I loved it Usually, when I read about age gap stories not a frequent occasion but I do read them once in awhile , it would be the older guy who would feel insecure about pursuing a relationship The younger guy would be the onedetermined The situation here was rather different Jay just walked out of a relationship with an older guy who looked down upon him Jay didn t want another daddy even if Devin was absolutely his type With the two characters being likeable, and they actually clicked , I really enjoyed reading how they worked out their relationship from the first not a date situation to sort of friendship until Jay realized that he made a mistake by judging Devin by his age Devin was such a darling and Lucy was a great sister, despite her meddling lol.Definitely a good read I might check out this author s first published MM story in December then
