Falling for the man of her dreams… Ruby Wood is perfectly happy playing the dating game – until she has a red-hot dream about her very attractive flatmate, Nick. He might spend every day saving lives as a junior doctor, but he’s absolutely the last man on earth that fun-loving Ruby would ever date!
The solution? Focus on all of Nick’s bad points. And if that fails, up her dating antics and find herself a man! So what if she manages to make disapproving, goody two-shoes Nick jealous in the process…
Only, after a series of nightmare first dates, there’s still just one man on Ruby’s mind. Maybe it’s time to admit the truth and dare to ask Nick to be her next date?

Truth or Date by Portia MacIntosh is a book which just screams fun to me, I adored the cover and after reading the blurb knew I had to read this book and it did not disappoint it was full to the brim with funny scenarios but also had some lovely heartfelt moments.

Ruby Wood has been perfectly happy dating a different man every week, content to keep looking for her ideal man rather than settle down and focus on a relationship. Until she begins to have rather erotic dreams about her flatmate Nick. Nick who is the total opposite to Ruby, he’s tidy, gets up early and is very focused on his career as a junior doctor. Nick who Ruby can’t stand as he mocks her fun lifestyle. Nick who is happy with long term girlfriend Heather. After confiding in best friend Millsy Ruby knows the only way to get Nick out of her head is to increase her dating antics, but when this just leads to a series of disasters should Ruby just admit the truth and ask Nick for a date?

Ruby was a character that I instantly warmed to. She may be untidy, late, a little dramatic and only really interested in a having a goodtime but she does seem loyal to those she does care about. Having a male best friend has made her harder and less willing to admit that what she really wants is someone to care about her and something to give her some direction in life. This really comes across when she begins to realise she has feelings for Nick and also begins to admire his work ethic rather than scoffing at it as she previously had.  I loved that she was confident in her own body, she is not worried what anyone thinks of her and carries off her curves and pink tinged hair brilliantly.

I loved all the comical moments in this book as Ruby attempts to win Nick’s heart, poor Ruby she seems destined for disaster. Some of my favourite moments were, stalking weird Ian, going clubbing dressed in drag and the selfie in the stars wars bedroom. Its book which will definitely make you laugh and I think it would make an excellent film.

I loved reading Truth or Date and will definitely be reading more books from Portia. Truth or Date is a light hearted read which is flirty and fun and a guaranteed pick me up, I think everyone should read this.

I give Truth or Date a rating of five out of five and would like to thank Carina UK and Netgalley for my review copy.
