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.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Super funny

I wonder why the author did not include the inequities of pay or of opportunity or a brief survey of women’s studies. Funny story, regardless.

An Equal Date

This was a super short story about a woman on a date determining if he is worth the effort. There was a twist, which was met by another twist. Wonderful narrator, cute story.

Feminist meet-cute and an A.D.D. wet daydream

Nothing says sexy like a first date telling you he’s “an adamant feminist.” Candace, meanwhile lets her mind wander between the explicit sex they might have versus the Seinfeld quirks of his that might turn her off, before proving something by their argument over the bill... but I didn’t really care whether he or she proved a point... or made a match. This did nothing for me.

Just brilliant

Short and brilliant. There's a lot of attraction and tension built into this 13 minute audiobook. It's nice to see two people come together like this.

Spot-on perfect narration of this gem by Samara Naeymi.

Short, Interesting Storyline, Occupied my Time

This was the first audiobook in the Fairer Sex Collection that I listened to before going on to finish the series. For the most part, they were entertaining mindless stories I was able to enjoy to while doing various household chores. This was one of the more enjoyable reads. It was short, had an interesting storyline, and occupied my thoughts. Listened for free through prime reads, so cant complain about the price, lol. The narrator definitely gets 5/5 stars, she was great!
