And stumbled on a world of hilarious science-fiction gold.
This book was just wonderful start to end, including the narration.
I picked this book up while it was free on Kindle expecting a quick, fun read. Date Night on Union Station was a refreshing, comedic take on Sci-Fi that I haven't seen lately in the genre. It is silly, and over the top, but you know what works? I mean, really funny, really interesting, and creative. I guess they were going for the funny on the covers of this seven (so far? But Kelly, the heroine of the tale, is nowhere as freaky trampy looking as the female on the cover! The dating service that sets her up as bait to be kidnapped so they can catch people in the act. These people don't even know each other but they (view spoiler) at the end of their date. The other issue is that the author very obviously had an idea of How Things Work in this world they've created.
Parts of it reminded me of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, one of my favorite Sci-Fi Comedies. I guess they were going for the funny on the covers of this seven (so far? But Kelly, the heroine of the tale,"Computer dating is fine, if you're a computer." - Rita Mae Brown"“Maybe our girlfriends are our soulmates and guys are just people to have fun with.” ― Candace Bushnell, Sex and the City OK, Ignore. Then the good guy the story is set up for her to end up with implies she is a prostitute on their first YUCK! Thank goodness it was short because I found it horrible. I got the book because a reviewer's headline said "Last time I'll judge a book by it's cover." Damn glad I did. But they did not do a very good job of explaining it at all.
And, I suppose, it's entirely appropriate for the genre.
It looked romancey, and with the name of the book (I mean date-night, come on), I wasn't sure i'd get all the way through it.
When she receives a gift subscription to the dating service that’s rumored to be powered by the same benevolent artificial intelligence that runs the huge station, Kelly decides to swallow her pride and give it a shot. A race who gathers up the dross of the universe, playing nursemaid to the galaxy’s lowest achieving lifeforms – a group Earth is definitely a part of. If you want to relax and laugh out loud, pick this up.

Thank goodness it was short because I found it horrible. It wasn't bad; the world was nicely imagined, if somewhat superficial (inventing names doesn't equal world-building depth. You jump back and forth each chapter between the two main characters until they finally meet at the end.
But as her dates go from bad to worse, she ca Kelly Frank is Earth Cent’s top diplomat on Union Station, but her job description has always been a bit vague. It is pretty hard to keep up when everyone has better technology, cheaper manufacturing, spaceships – well, you get the picture. The poor heroine, Kelly is manipulated by everybody in it. I got the book because a reviewer's headline said "Last time I'll judge a book by it's cover." Damn glad I did. Interesting way to do things, but the ending is so incredibly ridiculous that it ruins the whole thing.
It's also a fun world with interesting world-building any amusing character bits.
Ends a little abruptly, but this is one of those that I instantly bought the sequel to after finishing.
