Susan Hatler delivers a laugh a minute punch with this short. Billed for the adult genre it is also suitable for older young adults. Hatler went with the subtle covers of yesteryear, a sure calling card for the romance on the pages beneath the cover.

The title “My last Blind Date” is remarkable as all Rachel Price has had is one bad blind date after the other. Hatler characters will strike a chord and warm your heart with a tale that can mirror real life.

Although a quick read it is simply delici
A question for the author..." Dear Ms. Hatler, WHY didn't you write a longer, proper novel since you created awesome and likeable characters (such as Rachel and Noah)?"

No, really..lately I've been reading a lot of short stories and I realized I do get irritated a bit when the author has a good story and creates great characters, but decides to make it 20-40 pages long! C'mooonn, this could've been a great novel, considering there's a lot of meat to the story (at least that's my POV).

Anyway, I re

I, The Flashlight Reader, stand before you today and admit I have a problem. I am addicted to kindle freebies. Okay, maybe addicted is a bit too strong a word but I am becoming something of a freebie slut lately. Three of my last four reviews were downloaded at no charge. My Last Blind Date makes four out of five.

To sum up, Hatler’s novella is cute, fluffy and predictable. Not one of those descriptors do a damned thing for me though I can say the piece is well-written and solidly constructed. S
Super quick short story. This is about Ellen's friend Rachel, the one with the cute little beagle. Fun little Valentine'd Day blind date tale. Not a lot of depth in the relationship, really just the first blush of something that could be special.

The whole book is from Rachel'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.

After reading long novel (some boring) stories, I decided to start reading the third book of my new favorite series. But this book passed by like a hurricane! I was sitting reading, enjoying, grinning like an idiot and giggling like I was possessed when it was revealed who her last date was, and then bam, thirty minutes was gone, and I’m at the end… No… huhuhu, it felt short, quick and I feel like I should be saying sorry to my mother for learning all these naughty things, but then this is such ...more

This takes all of 5 minutes to read. And the plot and how it ends is pretty much given before you even start reading. With how short some of these stories are, I'm not sure why these authors even bother with fancy covers and all. With a nice cover like this one, seems like the story should have been much, much longer.

Again, cause it's too short, there is no connecting with the characters, no getting under their skin, no investment on where they end up. Other than that, if you have 5 minutes to s

This sassy little Valentine's Day short pacts a punch. For all its brevity, I was still able to get into the story, appreciate the humor and love the characters.

Its Valentine's Day and Rachel's friend wishes- yet again- to set her up on a blind date. Ellen's track record for unsuccess is batting a thousand. Ellen found happiness and just wants the same for her friend. She's willing to beg and connive to do it. Rachel cringes at the thought of going on another date, but she is also saddened to th

I discovered this series because I was trolling Amazon looking at cover art for my first self pubbed release. I bought My Last Blind Date because I loved this cover. It is hopeful, fun, and yes, it's a little intriguing to think of stepping into red heels to go out on a blind date.

I enjoyed the first person voice so much and the story matched the tone of the cover. I've since purchased and read most of the series. (I see I've missed the 4th so I'm off to buy it now)

*Update* I just read this one again and enjoyed it. This is Rachel's story and was way too short for my taste! I guess that's good because I really wanted more. I felt like I didn't get to know the characters as well as I wanted to, but it's still entertaining and fun.

It's Valentine's Day and Rachel is tempted to just stay at home with her dog. Innocent office flirting with Noah leaves her wishing for more, but not expecting it. Valentine's surprises await. Sweet and romantic, this story is gre

I really liked this feel good Valentine short story. I would have given it a five but it became predictable which I feel was just to pat in some ways. Rachel didn't even ask all the questions any normal woman who had been leery of blind dates would have ask especially when Noah doesn't know Ellen's boyfriend. I get it now in the full book version I have Noah called Ellen so he could change places with this new blind date. Makes sense now. So, that just through me off. Other then that I really li ...more

Seriously you guys, you have to pick this one up if you are a romantic at heart. It's perfect for Feb. with Valentines Day coming up. This is a novella, so it's a quick read. It was a perfect Sunday afternoon get away for me that left me smiling and happy. (and wanting more!) Deliciously sweet.

Susan has graciously donated an ebook for a giveaway on my blog if you are interested in a chance at reading it for yourself. Giveaway ends 2/13/12 (so you can read it on Valentines Day!)

This is a cute, funny romance, with a main character you won't forget. When I first read about her dog, I thought there was some sort of mistake. But later in the book, I found out her dog and its little quirk is for real. I'm still laughing about it.

Susan Hatler gives the reader a lighthearted look at the perils of being alone on Valentines Day. Is being alone on the biggest romantic holiday of the year worth the risk of another blind date? Read the book and you decide. I highly recommend it.

I love how the writer keeps the story so clean, yet it is very provocative (in a good way). Although "My Last Blind Date" was the shortest book of the series, it gives the meaning clearer than anywhere else, that love might just be around the corner. Rachel is too shy to do anything about her infatuation, but she was lucky. So, girls, stop waiting and go for it. But as Rachel says, although he might know that you like him, stay composed and don't give yourself right away.

I couldn't get to sleep this morning, I work graveshift, so I thought I would start this book and finish it when I woke up. It's a good thing it was such a short piece of work, because I couldn't put it down until I finished it. It was entirely predictable, but it was still a good read. If you are looking for something won't take a lot of time and doesn't go into depth, this is a good one to read.

It's a horrible feeling to see Valentine's Day coming up and you absolutely without any appointment. Argh!

Exactly why, Ellen, Rachel's best friend, made her accept to go to a blind date. And wow!!! What a date!!!

Loved the surprise that Susan brought on this book. I felt sorry for the book to be short. It would be interesting to see Jeremy begging a little more for forgiveness from Rachel.

5 STARS!!!

This was a great story. My second of Hatler's that I've read and now I want to read all of her work. It was a light romantic read. The character's were great and well developed for a short story. I was left very content at the end which is also a plus.

I was left with a smile on my face after debating what was going to happen next with Rachel in her search, or lack there of, for romance.

If you're looking for something quick and heartwarming, this might be a good story to check out.

This is a sweet little read! I think it’s shorter than a novella, but a cute and funny one. I had this one on my Kindle for PC for a while now and it was a freebie, so I couldn’t pass the chance to read it since I had some lunch time available.

Rachel and Noah are coworkers and she’d just swear blind dates her friend Ellen is known for. It's a little predicted and you could find out what would happen in this story.

My thoughts:
This was a very cute and short falling in love story. We could see the outcome every time a word was read, but you keep reading because you want to know, how they fall in love, how it all went down!

The Review:
A story heard many times over and over, yet it's how the author unfolds the story and makes it theirs is what matters. Susan Hatler made this story hers with her own characters and story background. If you love cheesy sappy romances then this one is it.

This one was super short. But super sweet. I really enjoyed how Noah went after what he wanted. Rachel had no chance to win a battle she didn’t even know she was going to in.

I received a complimentary copy of the books in exchange for an honest review. This review is my own opinion and not a paid review.

I am new to the world of short stories, so I don't have a lot to compare this too. It is very sweet and fun. Just imagine finding the guy of your dreams on a blind date, on Valentines day no less. It's a great read for the season. It lifts one's spirits and helps one enjoy all that is mushy and cliche on this "Hallmark Holiday." Kudos to Susan Hatler for this light, uplifting Valentine's day read.

A quick, fun read. It's a good introduction to the Hatler's style, which I enjoy so far. I wasn't blown away and mesmerized, but it definitely is a good "curl up with a quick book" sort of story. I got it for free on the Kindle and got more than my money's worth; I'm glad I caught it on a freebie weekend!

Ganz nett, aber nichts außergewöhnliches, ich hätte wirklich mehr erwartet. Die Geschichte konnte mich emotional so überhaupt nicht erreichen und Rachel war mir zu oberflächlich, die einzige Eigenschaft, die Noah ihrer Meinung nach Inne hatte war scheinbar einfach nur "heiß" zu sein. Super, wirklich sehr romantisch. ;-)

Very short story and pretty predictable, but very cute, romantic and enjoyable anyway. What woman doesn't want the handsome, smart, funny guy to secretly be in love with her and sweep her off her feet, and what woman doesn't want to read about that happening for someone else?! It always gives you hope right?!
