Falling for the man of her dreams…

Ruby Wood is perfectly happy playing the dating game – until she has a red-hot dream about her very attractive flatmate, Nick. He might spend every day saving lives as a junior doctor, but he’s absolutely the last man on earth that fun-loving Ruby would ever date!

The solution? Focus on all of Nick’s bad points. And if that fails, up her dating antics and find herself a man! So what if she manages to make disapproving, goody two-shoes Nick jealous in the process…

Only, after a series of nightmare first dates, there’s still just one man on Ruby’s mind. Maybe it’s time to admit the truth and dare to ask Nick to be her next date?

Ruby has been having some very sexy dreams about her flatmate Nick, which I must say are very pleasurable to read about, but there is a slight problem. She and Nick just don't get on in real life and he has a girlfriend who is the complete opposite of him. 

Ruby has been playing the field for a while using a dating site called Matcher, and is having a series of very bad dates, somehow I do always enjoy reading about other people's bad dates in books, and these were certainly enjoyable from my point of view, and eventually comes to the conclusion that Nick really is the man for her, not just of her dreams. 

Millsy is Ruby's best friend and also hates Nick, but he does have Ruby's best interests at heart when they come up with ideas to try to make Nick interested. including them playing a new game between them called Truth or Date...where Ruby has two choices, either tell Nick the truth, or date like mad to try to attract his attention that way. 

Truth or Date was a funny and light hearted story, that was really enjoyable to read. There was a lot of going out, and a bit too much getting very drunk, but that just seemed to be what the characters liked to do in their spare time. 

This is the sort of book that won't tax you too much to read it, but if you are in a chick lit mood, or like me light reading light pieces of fiction that just entertain and take you away from the real world for a number of hours, then Truth or Date definitely will fill that void. 

Thanks to Netgalley and Carina for this review copy. This is my honest opinion.
