Krista Clarke works at a travel agency but hasn't flown on a plane. She's not a risk-taker, she's the "not the 'just do it anyway'type. she was the "dot every I" and "cross ever T" type, the "let me sleep on it" type." That changes during the two weeks she's in Tahiti with her co-workers to meet their boss' son who'll be taking over the company.

The adventures planned by their elusive new boss definitely put Krista out of her comfort zone, and the time she spends with Mason also have her trying and feeling new things. She's surprised to find herself falling in love with someone she's known less than two weeks.

The descriptions in this book are fantastic, I could picture where Krista and Mason were and almost feel the ocean breeze. This is a quick read and Krista isn't the only one in her group at work that undergoes some changes.

I received a complimentary copy from the publisher, Hatco Publishing, via NetGalley. All opinions expressed in this review are my own.

Krista works for a travel agency. Never having the time to actually take a trip herself until now!  She needs to go to Tahiti to meet the boss. This is where we meet Mason. Completely opposites they get to know one another. When it is time to go home, how will this all play out?  This is a cute short story that will engage the reader early on.

Thank you NetGalley, Susan Hatler and Hatco Publishing for the copy of Destination Date. This is my personal review.
I absolutely love every book I have read by Susan Hatler. Destination Date was great.
Krista has a job working for a Travel Agency, but she feels like she is stuck doing a job she enjoys but doesn’t love. She is  never in any real hurry to get to work and then one day  she is called in to a meeting with the boss and she thinks the end is there for her but instead her and everyone else is told the boss is getting remarried and they are getting her son as their new boss. They are sent to Tahiti to meet him.
This sets off an adventure Krista never imagined in her life. 
I don’t want to give anything away about what happens so grab this book and set off an adventure you are going to enjoy. It’s a short fun filled book that will leave you smiling from start to finish.
This is book seven in  the Do-Over Date Series. The books are short and fun!

Destination date by Susan Hatler. 
Do-over date book 7.
A wondrous adventure that will make you smile & inspire you to go after your dreams.
Krista plays it safe with her steady job and comfortable routine. But when a destination work retreat takes her to exotic Tahiti, she’s thrown out of her comfort zone. She’s also exhilarated and feeling alive for the first time in years.
Could this be due to adventurous Mason, who shows her the island in unexpected ways? How can she hold onto this new zest for life once she returns home without him?
A brilliant read.  I read this in one sitting.  I couldn't put it down.  Great story and characters.  Krista was my favourite character.  I love how she was. I love the cover too its what drew me to this book. Plus it's Susan Hatler.  5*. Highly recommended.

What a good book. I wasn’t sure if it would be my type of book but I was pleasantly surprised. I’ll be looking out for more by this author. Well done!

Ever since Krista's initial career plans failed, she's given up on dreams and decided to focus on practicality - however much she hates her job. But when her retiring boss sends the whole company to Tahiti for two weeks to meet the new boss, a chance night meeting on the beach has her beginning to step out of her comfort zone. Spending more time with Mason in between team meetings that never work out quite right opens her eyes still further to all she's been missing. But can she - should she - maintain this courage when it's time to go home? And when the boss finally shows up, will it be the beginning of something new, or the end of everything?

While I haven't always loved my work, I can't imagine staying on when I hated it as much as Krista did. However, different people are different, and it was heart-warming to watch her starting to really live again instead of just going through the motions. The whole thing with 'meeting he boss' and how it never quite worked out was hilarious, and I would actually have liked to see a bit more of it (though I realise it had nothing to do with the romance, so I see why we don't). Finally, the ending was highly satisfying. All in all, an enjoyable clean light read - recommended.

Note that I received a complimentary copy of the book from NetGalley. I was not required to write a positive review and this is my considered opinion of the book.

Krista works for Tickets to Anywhere Travel but her heart really isn’t in it. Her former passion was to play professional soccer but that didn’t happen so she has a job that is ok and pays her bill. Whilst it let’s her volunteer at her other passion the charity ‘Founding Friendships’ . Her world is shaken up when her boss informs everyone she is retiring and her son is taking over the business and she sends all the employees to Tahiti to meet him. Krista is out of her comfort zone. She is terrified of flying. When she arrives she accidentally meets Mason on the beach as he is chasing his manuscript which had blown away. He shows her how to be a bit more adventurous .  

A fast easy read.

A really enjoyable sweet story. Krista is sent on a work retreat where she meets Mason who encourages her to step out of her comfort zone and embrace new adventures and experiences. There are some really descriptive moments, which help the reader by bringing the colours and feelings which they are experiencing alive. I would recommend this book.

This is the second book I read from this author and I really enjoyed both.

This story is short and cute. You can read it in less than two hours. The characters are real and well developed. This isn’t a spicy book, mostly platonic sweet romance.
I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
