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 Wood is a fabulously down to earth character. She seems to be working her way through a matchmaking site having one date disaster after another. Even though she has been sharing a flat with Nick for awhile she suddenly starts to have dreams about him and slowly realises she is falling for him.
Ruby and Nick are total opposites. He’s clean and tidy, looks after himself and you can see that at times he is fascinated with how Ruby is and at other times infuriated by her. He is a long term commitment guy and is very much under the thumb with his vegan girlfriend, Heather.
Ruby on the other hand, well her life is pretty much a mess. She works in a coffee shop, goes from one guy to another (quite quickly I should add), she eats rubbish and lives like a total slob in the flat. Saying all that though, she is a fun character. Her friendship with her best friend, Millsey, was great fun to read as they always seems to be getting into some sort of trouble.
The story is set in Leeds which living in Leeds also, I loved. There are so many places mentioned that I know of, that I could easily visualise the area surrounding them.
Truth Or Date is a light hearted and fun read. It will have the reader routing for Ruby whilst shaking their head with her antics. Highly enjoyable.
