Yes I thought it was a sweet, humors read with a lovely narrator, it was nice to have a fun loving read that let you just enjoy.
The picture of her, and of course when he pulled the hairball out of the dog and she asked him if he was a vet.
A cute humorous short romance about looking for love in all the wrong places only to find it right in front of you where you least expected. People can be too much alike or think they want something they do not. Sometimes compatibility is overrated we can be too compatible or think we want one thing when in fact it isn’t what we want at all.
Elle felt she needed to find someone compatible she signed up on Detailed Dating site. She did her profile and got her dates. The dates were all wrong she found what she really wanted was what she didn’t want at all. It was really funny watching her date and how the dates went.
I loved how a dog brought two people together, it was very funny. I loved that dog. Henry was a very sweet wonderful character who gave a lot of his self. There are some misunderstandings which turn out to be cute. The author gives you a well told story which will keep you smiling and the narrator makes you chuckle with her wonderful voices. There are so many lovely characters in this store, each bring so much to the tale that will keep you interested. Before you know it the book is over and you can’t wait for the next in this series.
This was a cute little read that is a funny clean reads about finding the mate of your dreams at first site. If you want an easy fast fun read this is the book for you.
I'd have to say its in the top 5 for sure
The Art Gallery scene....that's where it comes together...it was a awesome scene
I liked the way she brought the characters to life. She brought out the feelings an really made you feel what they were feeling
LOL I did both. The scene's with Chester had me giggling an when "the secret" comes out I teared up
This is short yet fun read. If you have a dog this book will be extra enjoyable for you to read. I have 5 dogs I enjoyed it ALOT!!!
It had me laughing at Chester antics and wondering who Ellen would select as her “Compatible” match. I could relate to some of the dating challenges that Ellen faced and how others relationships may have an impact on a person choices for their own relationships.
I would say that it similar to the "Mutt and the Match Maker" By J.B. Lynn as they both have Dogs that bring two people together and The main character is on a quest for love.
I love the different tones for each of the characters, which made it easy to follow.
Yes, if time would of permitted.
I received the Audible of “Love at First Date” by Susan Hatler and Narrated by Martha Lee. I enjoyed the narration by Martha Lee, she made it easy to follow along and used differentiated tones for each of the characters. The author Susan Hatler did an amazing job with this book, it had me laughing at Chester antics and wondering who Ellen would select as her “Compatible” match. I could relate to some of the dating challenges that Ellen faced and how others relationships may have an impact on a person choices for their own relationships. I absolutely loved this story and will be looking for other books by Susan Hatler.
Take a look it's in a book...Reading Rainbow!
This is a great fun quick sweet romance. I really like the characters and hope to see more of them through the series.
Ellen is a planner, which is so not me! I loved reading someone who is so much my opposite and seeing her fall for a guy who would totally do it for me as well! I will say be both have the same sense of humor and sass!
Henry is so sweet and he made me giggle often. I am a sucker for playful banter!
The whole book is from Ellen's POV, which limits how the reader seeing events. You only have her perspective to work from. Fortunately there are plenty of cues that you can pick up on to give you the bigger picture.
It is all sweet, a light flirtation but it never gets to the bedroom stage.
I listened to the audiobook narrated by Martha Lee, who does a great job. She has a soothing mature tone to her read but is still able to bring out the lightness in the banter. I really liked her voices and how distinct she keeps them. I really hope she stays with the whole series because she was a delight to listen to from beginning to end.
I am excite to have found this series. I love a tasty little treat every now and again!! Bonus these books are on Whispersync for Voice. If you snag the ebook the audio is only $1.99! Score!
I loved how candid the narrator was, she made you feel like you were actually going through the trials with characters.
When you discover what he was hiding from her, I teared up a little.
You can hear her love of the characters, and lively wit come through the reading. It makes it even more enjoyable, and hard to go back to just simply reading by yourself.
Any interaction between pets and their owner affects me, I could easily picture myself in her situation.
Great book, and it makes me want to get a dog, so I can take it to obedience class! Loved it, and can't wait to read the others in the series!!!
This has been my favorite so far of the Susan Hatler audiobooks that I have been blessed to read/listen to these last few weeks.
Ellen because she was so logical and anal about everything in her life. But she grew up so much emotionally in this story.
Rachel was probably my favorite because of her over the top feelings for her dog, Chester. Martha Lee made me giggle every time she was performing as Rachel.
Puppy love can lead to romance.
Tell us about yourself!
Yes because it was so refreshing and a difference perspective on romance. A younger fresher perspective. It wasn't very long which makes you just sail through it in one go but definitely well worth the listen.
My favourite character was in fact Henry because he just sound like a really lovely guy. Who wouldn't want to meet someone like him.
Almost the end at the Art Gallery when they finally get it all out in the open.
It took me a while to get used the narrator because she sounded so young, just like another recent book, she sounded like a young Wynona Ryder which bothered me at first but then was smooth and cute. I really did enjoy it and hope that rest of the seried will be available soon!
