Date by Mistake

Date by Mistake

Date by Mistake is an anthology of short novella’s having to do with an unexpected date. It would not be fair to give this book a star reviewing system for all the authors work, because I liked one and some I thought were just ok. I will be breaking down the titles and rating them individually.

Mr. Virile and the Girl Next Door by Gwen Hayes

I loved this short story, with the quick witted humor, banter, and sexual tension, Dane and Holly’s story was a hit. 4 stars

Seduction is the name of the game when two rival dating advice darlings agree to be romantically linked to boost publicity. But all bets are off when they take the battle of the sexes from the web to the bed!

Tycoon Reunion by Candace Havens and Shannon Leigh

Jake and Annabelle’s story was about long lost love and was short and sweet. 3 stars

Sparks fly when a project brings a heartbreaker back to town and into the path of the woman he left behind. He’s determined to win her over in the boardroom … and the bedroom!

Passionate Persuasion by Rosemary Clement-Moore

Again a long lost love story with a twist. It was a humorous, sweet read. 3 stars

A hot playboy who has left a string of hearts in his wake can’t forget the cellist who haunted his fantasies. Now it is his turn to use his power of persuasion to prove he’s the only man to keep her satisfied.

Date on the Run by Jill Monroe

This novella felt rushed to me. I think I would have like it better if it was a full novel instead; it had potential but just didn’t hit the mark for me. 2 stars

When an reporter mistakes a hard-bodied military man for a crime source, she soon finds it’s just as much fun undressing her new bodyguard as it is uncovering her latest case…Four stories, four dates. How can these dates by mistake turn into love ever after?


  1. Hmmm, thanks for the honest reviews. I'm not sure I would be interested in reading short novellas. Nothing wrong with them, I just always feel like I need more lol

  2. I know huh. I always feel like I am missing something too. I can do a novella if it is a campion or prequel, but other than that count me out. Thanks for the comment!
