Review: Dating the DILF by Amali Rose

Dating the DILF is a standalone contemporary romance and my first read from Amali Rose. This is the story of a single father named Miles Kent who decides to take his chances on finding love by participating in a reality dating show. While had high hopes for a happily-ever-after, what he ended up with instead was a tarnished reputation, no thanks to the not-so-positive spin the show put on him. He was made to look like a cheater and earned the ire of many a viewer. He returns to life with his two-year-old daughter, Tallulah, and his shared veterinary practice at McConnell Street Veterinary Clinic. He still hasn't given up hope on true love, and he may have found his second chance at the freezer section in the supermarket in the form of a gorgeous lawyer in search of her ice cream fix. Charlotte Reed only stays long enough to feel the shared connection and exchange first names before she runs off. Fate finds a way, but as strong as their feelings are, love may not be enough without faith and trust in each other.

This relatively quick read was a good introduction to this new-to-me author's writing. Amali Rose presents an interesting story of a single dad looking for love and is naively hopeful enough to believe he'll find it on a reality dating show. Now, I've never seen any of the dating shows that people have been talking about the past few years. Maybe it's the more cynical than the romantic side of me that is highly skeptical that contestants who join these shows are looking for true love, and while there are two people who end up paired together, more often than not, I doubt they actually remain together for the long haul. However, the main characters here do NOT meet on a dating reality show, only crossing paths after Miles's disastrous stint on one. The guy seriously takes the cake as one of the most romantic male main characters I've come across so far this year. He wasn't, by any means, perfect, but he was a good man with a kind-hearted nature who had a lot of love to give. I did like Charlie and Miles's family and best friend were great supporting characters, but it was Lulu who certainly wins top honors for most unforgettable character--aside from Miles, of course--in this book. I'm awarding Dating the DILF four out five stars. ♥
