Five Dates (Love's Landscapes) by Amy Jo Cousins





Helping his sister Lucy raise her kid has put Devin’s love life on hold. When he loses a bet to her and the penalty is to go out on five dates with men she’s chosen from Guys4Guys.com, he thinks that’s bad enough. Finding out she used a thirteen-year-old picture of him to score a date with a young guy who looks like a rock star? Epically bad.

Jay thought he wanted to fall for an older man. But his last boyfriend left him feeling humiliated and determined to stick to guys his own age. When he realizes he’s been conned into a date with exactly the kind of man he’s sworn to avoid, he’s ready to walk away on the spot. Only Devin’s swift apologies convince Jay to accept dinner to make up for the deception.

“The date doesn’t count for the bet unless you get a goodnight kiss.” After one not-a-date dinner with Jay, Devin isn’t worried about his sister’s rules. He just wishes he could convince Jay to go out with him for real. Jay wants no part of Devin, but Devin wants every part of Jay . . . so he asks Jay to help update his look for the rest of his dates. But once Jay’s made Devin over into the perfect date, will he be able to let him go?


After a lost bate, Devin has to go out on five dates with guys that his sister has picked. She made an online profile for her brother, using an old picture of him, when in his body description was still included a six [or even eight] pack.


Devin at first is against the idea, because he's not into dating, especially after learning about the picture that she used for his profile.It's obvious that he doesn't look like that anymore, since he's not a boy, but a man. The first date that agreed to go out with him is Jay, a hot younger guy who doesn't want to go out with older men, especially after his previous failed relationship. 

So, what happens when they meet and Jay realizes that his date is a fraud? And what happens when Devin is supposed to keep up with his bet and the rest of the dates, when his mind has been stolen by his first date? 

This was a short, fun read, with a too sudden ending for my taste. I wish we had a little bit more, even though I can't say I was impressed. The characters were likeable, although there were moments that they acted like teenage girls. Since this was my first M/M I can't be certain, but I hope that not every male acts like that in M/M stories. This certainly won't be my last M/M read! :)
