5.0 out of 5 stars Always The One 24 December 2015
By Nocturnus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This series must be read in order. The first book is Love At First Date. The second book is Truth Or Date. The third book is My Last Blind Date. The fourth book is Save The Date. This is the fifth book. I can't wait to read Licence To Date!

Melanie always jumps right on into "love". Every guy has to be " the One". Aaaand they ALL run away. She goes too fast and too deep for any regular guy to be on board with. After he last disastrous relationship she asks her best friend (and roommate) Patti to help her date properly, and so the Boyfriend Bylaws were born to keep her safe from her own bad habits. Will she be able to date successfully? Or will she have to forfeit her beloved car? Will she ever find "the One"? Or is it a futile search as she is beginning to fear? Why is Matt so tempting?

***This fun *short* chiclit series is suitable for young adult through adult readers who enjoy *clean* romance and offbeat humor :)

4.0 out of 5 stars A Twist of Date by Susan Hatler 30 September 2013
By MsChris1161 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed reading a Twist of Date. It's a lovely balance of humor, romance, realism, friendship, family issues, and love. The main characters have worked together at a gym for awhile as good friends. Matt has deeper feelings for Melanie but can't get her to take him serious. Melanie is too busy looking for love in all the wrong places to give Matt a chance. But after too many bad choices her best friend and roommate, Patti, convinces Mel to live by a set of "boyfriend bylaws" for dating designed to force Melanie into thinking before dating. This book was funny (the closet scene is hilarious), heartwarming, and ends with more than one kind of HEA for sweet Melanie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Will the Boyfriend Bylaws help Mel? 5 March 2015
By Daisy Dee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I received the Audible of “A Twist of Date” by Susan Hatler and Narrated by Martha Lee. I enjoyed the narration by Martha Lee, she made it easy to follow along and used differentiated tones for each of the characters. The author Susan Hatler did an amazing job with this story, it had me laughing at the “Boyfriend Bylaws” and Melanie character struggling with both dating and the boyfriend bylaws. Melanie’s story is relatable for some of us ladies as we love falling in love and sometimes miss the signs that the one we are falling in love with is not on the same page meaning…they are either just getting to know you phase or is only going out with you to have fun but nothing more. The author captures the complex actions and feeling that go with dating, especially for those of us who are in love with being in love and getting hurt over and over again.

4.0 out of 5 stars cute novella with some funny situations 11 September 2013
By lilacqueen75 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I was so confused!! I downloaded this when it was free and never bothered to read the description, since I enjoy the stories Ms. Hatler writes. I kept thinking, "I've read this before--I know I have." but when I looked on my goodreads shelf, I hadn't. I thought maybe I read it and forgot to review it, but then, on my second check, I noticed that it mentioned The Boyfriend Bylaws. Yes, it's been updated and released under a new title. That made me feel so much better!! I seriously thought I was going crazy.

That said, I really enjoyed this short little story. Melanie has bad luck with men and jumps into a "relationship" at every chance, only to find herself burned. Her good friend and roommate comes up with some rules to help her find a healthy relationship and what she discovers surprises even her.

The characters weren't super developed, but the reader gets a feel for who they are and their personalities, knowing that it's a novella. I loved some of the funny situations Mel found herself in--very giggle-worthy.

Content: technically clean, but brief references to intimate things and situations.
