Date Me is a short novella that you can read in an afternoon and will give you some things to think about in today’s electronic world. This was my first read by Logan Chance and I found it to be a really fun read -- A great way to spend a lazy weekend afternoon. I was pleasantly surprised that surrounding the sexual innuendos (I’ll never think of cookies in the same way again) and steamy whip cream filled sex scenes, there was an actual storyline that gave me food for thought. I actually had time to get to know each of the characters, as it is written in dual POV, and so even though, in reality, I would not have condoned their behaviour, I understood it and understood the war they waged within themselves. The author has actually done a great job expressing both the male and female perspectives.
Online dating sites and text messaging are a part of our world now, so the situation Erik finds himself immersed in with a girl he met through an online dating site could easily be a reality for many. Unfortunately, you will have to pick up the book to find out what Erik has gotten himself missed up in, but I think you will be very entertained and likely even a little turned on now and again.
Another thought provoking point that is prevalent in this story is how appearances can play such a big part in our relationship choices. Have we put aside the idea of getting to know a person before making a decision on whether we want to have a relationship with them? Do looks alone matter? Will a relationship based on looks and lust survive the test of time or does personality and common interests play a bigger part? These are a couple of the issues Erik is faced with going on a blind date with someone who checks all the boxes until they meet in person and the sparks and chemistry seem to be missing.
I recommend this book for anyone looking for a short, cute love story that has the element of very real possibilities in today’s world. If you are part of the dating scene today, this read might give you some food for thought. You may find yourself questioning your choices when it comes to finding that perfect person to spend the rest of your life with. I give this book 5 stars as it kept my interest to the end, had some swoon-worthy scenes, a little bit of angst with a twist, it made me laugh, and it still managed to surprise me with an HEA. He engaged my heart, my mind, and my senses. He had me wanting more and feeling sad when it was over way too quickly.
