Book Review: Love at First Date by Susan Hatler

****--4 Stars.
 October 2012, 139 pages.

Description (from amazon):
(Better Date than Never series, Book #1)

Ellen may not believe in storybook love, but it’s about to rewrite her life . . .

Ellen’s figured out that finding the right guy is all about compatibility. That’s why she signs up for Detailed Dating—the local online dating scene in Sacramento. They ask men the hard questions, compare their answers with hers, then she filters through the profiles of each provided “match.” After numerous email exchanges, she narrows it down to two promising candidates she’s excited to meet in person.

When Ellen’s best friend asks her for a favor, dog-sitting leads to disaster and Ellen ends up at the local vet where she meets a man she can’t get out of her mind. Henry isn’t a logical choice, but she finds herself paying for dog obedience class to spend more time with him.

Ellen knows that in order to have a lasting relationship, she should take the safe route and go for one of the pre-screened guys. But, how can she think with her head when her heart keeps begging her to give Henry a chance?
My Review:
Ellen is determined to find the perfect man and goes through an online dating site to do so. She thinks that if on paper they're very compatible, then the relationship will be great. But what she learns surprises her.

I thought this was a fun, cute, short story. Ellen's mom doesn't count her dad and they are both determined that Ellen ends up with the perfect relationship. Really--you can plan and plan exactly how things are going to go in your life and they never go the way you've planned. 
Craig was hilarious in a dry kind of way--82%. Haha. Henry was great--kind and mysterious and very sweet.

Content: clean.
