Rate a Date by Monica Murphy
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The following ratings are out of 5:
World building: 🌎🌍🌏🌎
Character development: 😳🤬😮🤨🥰
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.
