Five Dates

Five Dates - Amy Jo Cousins


Only one image was suitable for me upon completing this gem...



What more really is there to say?

I absolutely loved every minute of this book and really hated for it to end.  The two are beyond adorable and their meet ups are just wonderful. 



Aside from the sweet factor of this couple, there is a beyond awesome sister, witty dialog, a date save that is hot hot hot and an ending that left me swooning over these two.

But seriously…I kinda feel like the debt collectors are going to come banging down my door for payment.  This is a FREE read!!!!  WTF?? I would happily have paid for this one…considering some 20 page reads I have paid a couple of bucks for and been so disappointed.

Read this…what have you got to loose…

10% done with Five Dates: But he couldn’t stand it, watching them berate his bright, shiny sister and she was small and shuddering and nearly broken.
“I’m gay.”
In retrospect , the fact that he’d had to repeat himself six or seven times before his mom and dad stopped shouting long enough to hear him was mildly entertaining.


14% done with Five Dates: Yep...I approve of the sister. Big plus.

15% done with Five Dates: Devin managed to catch his eye.
He pointed at the open chair and half-pulled his coat off its back, raising his eyebrows. Want it?
The smile he got was brilliant.
Yup. That smile was deadly.
“Thanks. I’m meeting a date, but I definitely need a drink first.”


Poor Devin. :(

20% done with Five Dates: “I wouldn’t normally take out my cell phone on a date, you know. But I want Toby to have your picture, in case you’re a serial killer and drug my food. Plus, this isn’t— ”
“Got it.”


21% done with Five Dates: “Homework emergency. Sorry.”
Jay’s head reared back so far it looked like it hurt. “You’re an actual daddy? Aw, hell no. I don’t do that.”
“No!” For a moment, he thought Jay might actually get up and leave..."


I am in love with these two already!

22% done with Five Dates: "Have you had tapas before?”
Jay shook his head and Devin’s grin grew. “You’re gonna love it. It’s great. Everything’s tiny plates, so we get to order a ton of stuff...There’s cold and hot tapas and then other stuff, like paella, but I usually skip that because if you share a bunch of tapas, it’s more fun. And they have specials, like conejo— that’s rabbit— and pincho de gambas a shrimp skewer. Those are usually really good, too. But we definitely have to get queso manchego, jamón ibérico, aceitunas, and tortilla.”


A man after my own heart!

22% done with Five Dates: “It’s kinda cute how excited you get about this food. Makes me feel better about before.”
“Cute?”
"Don’t get any ideas. This is so not a date right now. But you can tell me more about whatever the hell it was that you said we should order.”



31% done with Five Dates: Devin leaned in and brushed his lips against Jay’s, the barest butterfly kiss of a good- bye. When he pulled back, Jay’s eyes were huge, one hand sliding up to press against his lips, as if he wanted to mimic Devin’s kiss.
❤️❤️❤️

31% done with Five Dates: Both POVs!!! Both POVs!!!

42% done with Five Dates: “I’m not going out with him again.” He’d already promised himself, even though he was pretty sure if Devin stood still long enough, Jay would end up humping him like his mama’s Yorkie assaulted the couch corner.
*snorts*

57% done with Five Dates: Jay? Please. I'm sorry.


100% done with Five Dates: "Tell her she got it right the first time."

Forgot how much I loved this character. ❤️❤️

15% done with Five Dates: Taller than he’d looked in the photo. Not too far under Devin’s own five foot eleven. But just as slim and even more beautiful. His black hair swooped up in what was damn near a pompadour and that, combined with maybe a tiny hint of guyliner, made him look like a rock star. Skinny dark jeans and a white V- neck T- shirt under a leather jacket.
Well...damn...Jay must also be channeling his inner Ty...I think I have the pic of Jay in my phone. ;)

❤️❤️❤️

48% done with Five Dates: Tad’s startled look was the only warning Devin got before a heavy weight pushed against his shoulders and a hand snuck into the open front of his shirt. Devin closed his eyes and smelled the vanilla and leather scent of Jay’s cologne.
"Who the hell are you?” Tad was pissed at the interruption.
“His boyfriend.”

This scene...um...

72% done with Five Dates: This is your guy.

Damn...The End came much quicker than I remembered. :(
