Audiobook Review: Rate a Date (Dating, #5) ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Rate a Date by Monica Murphy

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Eleanor Murray is tired. Tired of going on awkward dates. Tired of meeting men who just aren’t that into her. Tired of being set up on blind dates by her well-meaning friends.

She is a believer of true love, of finding that happily ever after, and she wants it. She deserves it. But at the rate she’s going, she’s pretty sure it’s never going to happen. Until a friend creates a profile for Eleanor on a new dating app. 

At first, she’s reluctant. Dating apps aren’t the way to finding true love, are they? But then she makes a connection on Rate a Date, and this gorgeous, confident guy almost seems too good to be true…. 

Mitch Anderson has a secret. He’s just moved to Las Vegas for his high-profile job, and after years of playing the field, he’s looking for a serious relationship. He wants to find a woman who likes him for who he is, not what he does. Meeting Eleanor on the dating app, he’s intrigued. Meeting her in real life while she’s in town for a bachelorette weekend, he completely falls for her. Now he’s in way over his head. Their chemistry is combustible. They can’t keep their hands off each other. But will Eleanor forgive him when she finds out who he really is?

The heroine: Eleanor – a hair stylist who is awkward with men and hasn’t had a boyfriend in a while. Two of the women in her group of friends are getting married and one of her other friends signs her up on an app called “Rate a Date”.

The Hero: Mitch – An NFL Football star who used to be a player in every sense of the word. He has since gotten tired of the carousel of women who want him only because of who he is. He tries out a new app where he can meet a woman who doesn’t know who he is and could possibly find someone who likes him for himself.

The Story: Eleanor and Mitch meet on “Rate a Date”. They get along well from the start though Mitch lies about what he does for a living because he wants to know if Eleanor likes him or his fame. He is moving to Las Vegas because his team is moving and when Eleanor finds she will be going to Las Vegas for a bachelorette party, they plan to get together.

This was told in dual points of view by two narrators, Emma Wilder and Patrick Zeller. I think this was the first time I have heard these narrators and I really enjoyed both of them. Especially Patrick Zeller, who has a deep gravely voice that was perfect for Mitch. I loved his dirty talk! Emma Wilder has a pleasing voice that is soft and worked well for Eleanor.

The story was cute and of course everything comes to a head when Eleanor finds out that Mitch isn’t who he said he was. I liked the resolution and the two main characters had a ton of chemistry.
