Dating Mr Right by Lauren Blakely

This is a collection of four (standalone) short stories featuring characters that we’ve met in the past and i have to say, it was ever so enjoyable catching up with them while they found their own happily ever after.

In Lucky Suit we get the story of Cameron and Kristen who meet online and go through a confusing then hilarious first date and subsequently navigate a long-distance relationship.

In Once Upon a Red-Hot Kiss we have Kirby, who absolutely hates Valentine’s Day and believes he’s been cursed to never find happiness. He’s in love with his best friend Macy who is effervescent and happy and embraces every occasion with gusto. Luckily, she’s in love right back!

Too Good to Be True features my favorite man in this boxset, Kirby! Serious swoon-alert right here! He’s a vet whose ex left him to travel the world and is a bit wary of getting involved with someone new. However, when his matchmaking client/friend sets him up with a gorgeous woman who is into sabotaging every relationship that comes her way, he bites the bullet and falls hard.

And finally, Strong Suit: the older-woman, younger-man trope has never been so flirty and delicious! Noah wears Ginny down with his paper airplanes and kale-infused cuisine till she accepts that Noah is the man for her, despite the age difference and food choices.

I have to say, I enjoyed all of these reads immensely. Some, if not all, of the characters I’ve been so eager to read about and was hoping Blakely would give us glimpses of in the future. So in my humble opinion, the novellas satisfied my curiosity while delivering a fun and flirty good time. Even though these are short stories, Blakely infuses so much warmth and personality into her characters that you’re left feeling as though you’ve read a complete and extensive novel which I believe says much about her as an author.

*I voluntarily read an early copy of this book.
