Summary from Goodreads:
Kristen knows men hide things. Case in point, her last boyfriend turned out to be married. Just like anyone else, Kristen is devastated. However, since Kristen evaluates people for a living, her ex’s duplicity has her searching for a new career as well as swearing off men.
Touring history museums with her sexy friend Ethan doesn’t count, because he has a girlfriend, and has only shown friendly interest in Kristen. He even helps with her career counseling tasks. Although Kristen has a secret crush on Ethan, spending time with him is safe. Until she discovers he’s actually single. Gasp. And now he’s flirting with her, too.
Suddenly, Ethan is way too dangerous. Not to mention tempting. Sure, he seems like sixty shades of perfect, but how’s a girl with bad judgment supposed to detect what skeletons he has in his closet?
My Thoughts:
Save the Date is a quick read that reminds the reader that communication is a major part of a relationship. If a relationship doesn't work, you can't just give up and assume the problems with that one person will also be a problem with a new relationship. You have to get back out there and give the next guy a fighting chance, because he may just be exactly what you are looking for. Things go wrong in our lives and there is nothing we can do about it, so we just need to move on and let everything be a lesson for the future. We just have to remember not to dwell on it and bring us down.

Kristen grew up in a troubled home. As a way to prevent other kids from going though the same things she did as a child, Kristen became a counselor. She may have been a very good one, but she still couldn't see that her boyfriend, Jake, was already taken. Kristen decided to write off all men for good...along with her counseling career. She just can't get over the clues that she missed about Jake. She has always been a woman that went after what she wants and needs to find the courage to be that woman again.

Her friends try to get her out of the house and manage to find her a temp job while she decides what to do with her life. And then there's her guy friend, Ethan. He's nice, handsome and shares a love of history. They spend time here and there strolling through exhibits together, but Kristen doesn't see him as someone she could date. He probably has a girlfriend or isn't attracted to her. Plus, there's the whole thing with swearing off guys forever. Ethan is a nice guy who tries to be a good friend and give Kristen time to work through her troubles and doesn't approve of how Jake treated her. He knows he would never do something like that to her. He just needs to find a way to make her realize that he isn't another Jake out to break her heart all over again.
