What do you do when your best friend’s guy cheats on her?
Help her get revenge, of course.
Getting caught by his brother isn’t part of the plan. The brother’s price for not turning us into the cops? I pretend to be his girlfriend to help him close a business deal.
I’d rather go to jail than play the part of Caleb Stanton’s latest conquest, but my friend has been through enough.
What do you do when your boss won’t sell you his store because he thinks you’re a flight risk?
Produce a girlfriend, of course.
Blackmail wasn’t normally my thing, but I’ve got less than twenty-four hours. I’d rather extort Sloan for a date or two than disappoint my boss.
We agree to a fake relationship in return for silence. We agree to act like we care about each other. We agree to five dates only. But we don’t agree to what happens next. And we certainly didn’t agree to falling in love.
BLUE SEAL’S REVIEW OF FIVE DATES ONLY
The duo of Renae and Lara – R.L. Kenderson – write books which are sometimes contemporary, sometimes paranormal, but always steamy. Five Dates Only falls in the sometimes contemporary and definitely in the always steam categories!! Grab your cold beverage and let’s chat in the air conditioning about R.L. Kenderson’s Five Dates Only.
Let me just say, everyone needs a best friend like Sloan (I have a Sloan in my life – JW!) She is hilarious. She is smart and loyal. She is vindictive and will cut a heifer if you hurt her friends. So when Sloan gets caught ruining the car of the cheater who is dating her best friend, by his brother of all people, she allows herself to be blackmailed in order to protect her BFF. Sloan’s personality is absolutely the best! Love her! Want to hang out with her!
Caleb was the screwup, the black sheep. After his grandfather died, Caleb dropped out of college and took off to Europe for a year. That was ten years ago and people still think that he is a flake nevermind the fact that he has worked for one company since he was sixteen and is one of the managers. The owner is ready to sell the store and retire. What better way to prove that he is ready for the responsibility than to buy a house and have a steady girlfriend. Wait…isn’t Sloan a relator and isn’t she single?
Yes, I know this is another book about a “fake” relationship which may or may not become real (no spoilers here). Like I said, Sloan is hilarious and keeps Caleb on his toes. Underneath his playboy ways, Caleb is a good guy. This book was a fun, easy read with lovable characters that you will not want to miss out on. Five Dates Only by R.L. Kenderson gets 4.5 out of 5 propellers!!

The Wickedcoolflight Crew
R.L. Kenderson is two best friends writing under one name. Renae has always loved reading and in third grade wrote her first poem where she learned she might have a knack for this writing thing. Lara remembers sneaking her grandmother’s Harlequin novels when she was probably too young to be reading them, and since then she knew she wanted to write her own.
When they met in college, they bonded over their love of reading and the TV show Charmed. What really spiced up their friendship was when Lara introduced Renae to romance novels. When they discovered their first vampire romance, they knew there would always be a special place in their hearts for paranormal romance. After being unable to find certain storylines and characteristics they wanted to read about in the hundreds of books they consumed, they decided to write their own.
One lives in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area and the other in the Kansas City area where they’re a sonographer/stay-at-home mom/wife and pharmacist/mother by day, and they’re a sexy author by night. They communicate through phone, email, and whole lot of messaging.
