Publisher's Summary

Dating can be tricky, but how hard can it be to find the right guy? Or even just a normal guy?

For Everly Dalton, it’s a bit like trying to walk in stilettos - while drunk, blindfolded, and wearing the wrong size shoes. She hasn’t exactly been lucky in love. In fact, she just might be cursed.

A guy who only dates lookalikes of his ex? Pass. An alpha-male businessman who bolts in a moment of crisis? No, thanks. A date that turns into the creepiest interview in the history of ever? Where does she find these guys?

Join Everly as she dishes to her friends about the surprising, unpredictable, and sometimes crazy adventure that is modern dating. Will she keep matching with frogs or find her Prince Charming?

Everly Dalton’s Dating Disasters originally appeared as six serial episodes in Claire Kingsley’s newsletter. The complete series is available here in one volume. Each episode is an account of one of Everly’s (typically terrible) dates. This series of short stories takes place before the full-length, stand-alone hot romcom, Faking Ms. Right.

A Hilarious and Fun Prequel Novella

Overall 4.5 stars
Performance 4.5 stars
Story 5 stars

What a hilarious and fun little prequel novella to Faking Ms. Right! Everly Dalton's Dating Disasters was originally sent in the author's newletter as a six part serial. It is broken down into little episodes featuring the terrible dates poor Everly has had to endure in the search for love. The listener/reader is introduced to the Dirty Martini Running Club, which includes Everly and her BFF's, Nora and Hazel. Each episode/date was wonderfully unique and had me laughing out loud. The gym bro episode was especially hilarious! I really enjoyed Emma Wilder's narration and her comedic timing was spot on. Sometimes the characters sounded a little too similar, but overall, this was a quick and fun listen that has me excited to start Faking Ms. Right!

Great prequel novella

This is a prequel novella for Faking Mrs.Right. It's not necessary to read/listen to before Faking, but it is so fun to see what Everly's dating life was like before she and Shep paired up. Emma Wilder does a great job narrating all of Everly's bad dates. Short, fun, exasperating, and funny. Loved it.

How could one person have so many bad first dates?

Everly Dalton just can't seem to find the right man to date.
She is beautiful, smart, funny and so likeable but when it comes to dating, she's a walking disaster and wants to just swear of dating.

In this prequel to Faking Ms. Right, we learn of her dating record, date after disastrous date.
We also get to meet the rest of The dirty Martini Running Club, which consists of her best friends Hazel and Nora.

Emma Wilder, is one of my favorite narrators. She gives every character their own personality and she is so fun to listen to.

Loved every last word

This story was as exciting to listen to, as it was to read, but the narration added a whole new feature to this story. Loved it.

Cute and funny and kinda cringe-worthy

This was such a cute book. Poor Everly! All those horrible first dates! She really must have the worst luck ever. The stories were funny and ridiculous and frustrating and exactly like real dating...just not one after the other. I sure hope her story continues with a better outcome.

Don’t settle

Everly makes me feel a little better about my my own dating history. A hilarious collection of stories of her disastrous first dates. It was great introduction to a new series. We get to meet the main characters. We were also gifted with a cameo of Cooper Miles.
Narration was perfect.

Laugh Out Loud Funny!

Oh my god this is a quick and very funny prelude to Faking Ms Right. It really sets the scene to Everly’s really rubbish dating history! And my god did this book get me laughing!
Emma Wilder performs this book spectacularly. Her male voices are just spot on and a lot of the time better than what a male could do!
Although short, this book both sets the scene and introduces Everly and her friends… and a fair few disaster dates!!

Hilarious

As someone who had to navigate the dating scene in NYC, this book was reminiscent of some of the funny, if slightly awful dates I've had in the past. It was awesome. I really enjoyed it and laughed out loud, while commiserating with Everly. I read/listened to this back to back with her next book Faking Ms Right and both bring out laughs as well as so much excitement for this new series with three fantastically amusing women who are smart, loyal and true to each other and themselves. i look forward to more of these books!

Emma Wilder is perfect for Everly. Great pacing, comedic timing. I enjoyed the audiobook very much!

Amazing

This has me laughing so hard I started coughing on many occasions I love how the story starts by Everly talking with her friends and then it opening up to how the date went down. This is a fantastic pick me up story if your feeling a little down this will have you laughing along within minutes

Hysterical prequel

I don't think I have laughed out loud to a book like I did when I listened to this one. The prequel to Faking Ms. Right, this introduces us to Everly and the Dirty Martini Running Club(Hazel and Nora). It's split into 6 episodes, each a horrible date that Everly is on, and will leave you with a smile on your face. Listening to this may hit home a little too much with each disaster being something we all can relate to. It's the perfect segway to book one and I really enjoyed it.

Emma Wilder nails this hilarious story with her amazing comedic timing. It's the first time I have heard her do comedy and I could not have been more impressed. She gives all the disasters that little bit of sarcasm so we can get through and move on to the next one. I loved her performance.

Great Story & Narration🎧Enjoyable & Entertaining!

This is a fun and enjoyable book, it is well written and well told with interesting storylines that will captivate you and put a smile on your face. Claire Kingsley has a way with words and she fit a lot of story into her novella. I like how each chapter was broken into episodes, each episode is details of Everly Dalton’s Disastrous Dates and some of them are real doozies. Everly is a great character, she has a wonderful sense of humor and ability to just go with it. She has a great group of friends too. This is a quick read and/or audible listen, once you start it you will not want to put it down, you have to know what happens next. Claire Kingsley, thank you for this great book, I am looking forward to what is in store for Everly in “Faking Ms. Right”.

I listened to the Audible edition, Emma Wilder is a fabulous narrator and voice artist. She brings the characters to life, giving each their own voice and personality. You could hear how much heart she puts into her work as she projects the characters emotions into her performance. Her portrayal of Everly and the secondary characters was spot on, they sounded as you pictured them to be. She is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for this great listen🎧
