    "My first audiobook - Wonderful!"

    An excellent story, a great narrator and a wonderful overall experience! This was my first audiobook and Susan Hatler's story was funny and real. I will definitely read (or be read to) the others in this series. It took getting used to being "read to" but I truly enjoyed the experience. I strongly recommend the story either read or audio!

    "Never say "Never!""

    I have the print as well as this audio version of the book and I really enjoyed listening to the story as it really portrayed the emotions and personalities of the characters and brought it to life. The story is very well written, very true to life in my opinion. I found myself saying over and over, come on... give him a chance!! And the game of Truth or Date was fun to see which she'd choose and the outcome. I laughed, cried and smiled all the way through the book!! Can't wait to read the rest of this series!

    Story
    "Fun loving sweet read"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Truth or Date to be better than the print version?

    Yes, I thought the narrator brought more to the story which gave it more emotion than the read did.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The lesson to look deeper into your feelings that what we true want can be ours if we really take a closer look at ourselves.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Gina had a date the same night with both men and Chris called her out on cheating on him. He was being truthful and she couldn't understand that. I enjoyed their little fight. Then the end when they danced together.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a fun loving clean book that will keep you smiling and even give you a few laughs. I really enjoy reading this I loved the truth or dare. This is a wonderful short romance with lots of humor, caring, confusion for the characters. Poor Gina has been stuck in a relationship that is going nowhere fast. She decides to end it move on to someone who is interested in marriage and a family. She is oblivious to what Chris really wants in life and who he wants. All her friends play truth or dare it’s a fun game one finds out a lot when one is dared to do things. She must plan a going away party for Chris who is changing jobs, she plays truth or dare with him. He decides to make it worth his wild and asked her to pretend to be his girlfriend which leads to a lot of laughs. She is torn between Ethan her blind date and Chris. Ethan is a sweetheart but there are no sparks he does want marriage and a family. Chris is a playboy who changes women as many times as he changes underwear. There is a reason for this and we do find out what that reason is as the book ends. Sparks sure to fly when those two are together.

    Gina doesn’t know if she should go with her heart and the sparks or if she should take the safe road. She has to pick one and take him to the wedding, she decides to take neither. Gina sure is surprised when both turn up what will she do?

    I felt the narrator did an outstanding job I totally loved this book but enjoyed the audio more. With the narration you can feel the pain, sorrow, laughs, passion and so much more than if you had read it. Both the book and the audio are 5 star reads and well worth your time. The words flow so easy, the author puts a lot of thought into the plot to give you a little mystery. The ending is outstanding and almost has you in tears. The book flows so easy before you know it you have read/listen to at almost one setting, you do not want to put this down. If you haven’t read or listened to any books by this author you should give her a try, with her humor and plots you will find yourself chuckling and wondering how they will get out of the next mess they seem to have gotten their selves into.

    "Fun sweet read"

    If you are looking for a quick sweet romance, this book is for you. In keeping with the series Gina, one of Ellen's friends, is looking for love. She is recently single, which means she needs a man. Ok, this is about a chick-lit not getting on a soap box.

    Love the fun banter between Gina and Chris. Would have been nice to have his POV. Unfortunately, the whole narrative comes from Gina. They do have a very cute dynamic. I also love the camaraderie between all the girls. Sometimes you need a girlfriend to just tell you things straight.

    I accidentally read things out of order with this series. Definitely should go in order, each story builds on the others. They are all slightly connected.

    I listened to the audiobook narrated by Martha Lee, who is lovely. She has a great pace to her read that keeps the story moving. The voices are distinct and consistent throughout. She has just the right level of snarky balanced with maturity. I am definitely going to be looking for more of her works.

    I am enjoying these short sweet squeaky clean romances.

    Funny, Interesting, Heartwarming

    The 2nd Date with Ethan...and how Chris being there played out.

    How she changed tone/voice for each character

    Any additional comments?

    I received the Audible of “Truth or 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, crying, and wondering who Gina would end up with all the way through the book and up until the end. I loved each of the characters development through the story and how they interacted with each other. I absolutely loved this story and will be looking for other books by Susan Hatler.

    I love this book. I could not stop listening. I can relate to the story, having been with my ex-boyfriend for 7yrs before finding my now husband of 16yrs! This story speaks to the uncertainty, the insecurity and the excitement of new-found love. A wonderfully told romance, read by an equally great Martha Lee. Can't wait to hear more!

    "Very sweet story"

    This is the second audio book in this series I have listened to. I thoroughly enjoyed this book because one of my favorite love stories is where a guy is pining for a girl from afar. Chris was a hot guy, supposedly a player, but somehow I was able to love him, right from the get-go. I will absolutely be reading more from this author.

    Story
    "Another clean and fun romance"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. This novella from Susan Hatler is a fun and fluffy romance. The characters are well written and the secondary characters add so much to the the overall plot of the story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The four girls game of Truth or Dare was so much fun to see how each one re-acted to the game. Would they choose Truth or Dare and what would be the consequences.


    What about Martha Lee’s performance did you like?

    She did a fine job of reading the story and her pronunciation and enunciation of the words was very well done.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    At the end of the story when Gina realized her own fears and then had to face Chris and be truthful.
