(Better Date than Never series, Book #6) 

After discovering her fiancĂ© cheated on her, Kaitlin is focused on two things: remodeling her new home and avoiding men at all costs. But her friends insist she get back in the driver’s seat and date again. They strike a hard bargain and agree to paint her house if she goes on five dates.

Anxious to get the paint job started, Kaitlin schedules five dates in five days, but her plan falls to pieces when a sexy bartender at her venue-of-choice makes her swoon. Even though he observes each of the dates from afar, she can’t help but want him to come a little closer.

The last person she should fall for is a mysterious bartender with a sinful smile, but Paul makes her want to take risks again. Will the charming man with electric blue eyes break her heart or will he prove to her that a license to date is what makes life worth the drive?

     Absolutely, love this book.  Not only was it cute but it had meat on the bones too.  It had everything women fear being cheated on.  This one was even worse Kaitlin Murray got cheated on by and with her step-sister.  To her sister Melanie’s defense she had no idea that he was also dating her sister at the time.  Her only mistake is when she found out it was at her sister's bachelorette party.  At least it was before the wedding that she was able to worn her sister.
     The funny thing was Paul kept calling asking for forgiveness for a few weeks.  Going as far as saying, he admitted to the cheating but that it had been early on in their relationship.  That if he would have known Mel was her sister he wouldn’t have dated her.  As if that made it any better or win her back or her trust back.  She overestimated his I.Q.
     She didn’t let it get her down or show on the outside.  Behind her closed doors she cried for two months straight.  Now she was past that and had bought herself a nice ranch style home on the Sacramento River.  It’s an ‘80’s throwback so it needs TLC.  Her friends Kristen and Ginger are over working in her kitchen stripping wall paper when they come up with this crazy idea that Kaitlin just hates.  While they are there they decide it’s time to push her dating buttons back to “on.”  Of which Kaitlin’s not ready so it’s pissing her off.
     They put it in the form of a challenge.  They know she couldn’t refuse.  Five days, five dates, and the both of them would help paint her whole house.  All 2000 sq. ft. of it.  She is obsesses with decorating it.  It keeps her mind off of what has transpired over the last several months.  It’s a good way to save her heart from being hurt again so this painting thing is a big deal.  In her mind go on five one hour mindless dates.  You know the mindless ones, zero interest with the other person, Monday through Friday, and the girls could be here Saturday to paint.  Since this whole discussion started because her realtor asked her out she would call him as date number one.  Date number two could be this guy Brian her mom wanted her to date.  Then, date number three her friend from work wanted to fix her up with a friend of her husband’s.  She knew she could do this so she agreed.
     Then something she didn’t expect while waiting for her late first date, Chase, she chatted up “New Paul” the bartender.  His eyes were a killer blue you could just dive into.  When he spoke forget about it.  His touch had caused tingles and electricity to zig-zag through her.  She could talk so easily to him.  It was as if she was the only person there.  He really listened as if he cared.
     For all of her dates they met at the hotel Geoffries.  She gave all these excuses why but deep down she knew she just had to see him.  He was all she could think of “New Paul.”  She knew her mother would never approve.  She didn’t care she really enjoyed his company.  So, when she asked him to be date #4 he turned her down.  She didn’t let him see but it hurt her a lot.
     Can these two birds from different backgrounds make it more that just friendship or is it just what it is a friendship?  You will have to read and find out.  A lot of very funny moments.  I give this:  5 stars.  Provided by Net Galley.
