Summary

Is there any chance of a second date? That all depends on what a woman and a man are willing to invest in the first, in this quick-witted short story of a perfectly equitable modern romance.

After 10 years of bad blind dates, Candace is having a hard time believing Patrick is so spot-on. He’s sharp, handsome, and kind - her mind can’t help racing to where it all will lead. Then the check arrives. It’s time to get real.

Candace is part of The Fairer Sex, a collection of sexy, satirical, and sometimes harrowing short stories that explore the question: “What do women want?” The answer is different for every woman, but each can be read or listened to in a single sitting.

Fun microstory...

It was cute and super short. Worth borrowing with Amazon Prime.

The reader did a great performance!

I guess if it’s free...

Borrowed for free via Amazon Prime membership. At 14 minutes long (including intro & credits) this is just a little bit of convo, Candace’s internal musings, an interesting discussion over the check, and it’s over.

I can’t imagine spending money on this or ever listening to it again. Though it was well written, an intriguing concept & perspective, and the narrator was great.

what the WHAT?

the narration was fine, but the storyline was a woman's inner thoughts babbling about her date. it was 13 min long as an audiobook. and I'd like my $1.74 back 😕

Slam Dunk

I love reading a book where a woman so subtlety slam dunks on a man and all of his mansplaining foolishness.

Cute

I'm not really sure how much of a story this actually was. I'm not saying it was bad. It was cute and witty. I would even consider it funny and clever. However, I do not consider this a story. There was no true beginning, middle, or end. It does have great potential though. I can say that.
