wasn't the wOrSt BoOk EvEr but it definitely was Not Very Good Bleghhhhhhhhhhh Once again I find myself smiling wide through another fun rom comThis genre is uickly becoming one of my favorites They rarely disappoint I’m always entertained and they leave me feeling satiated at the end What could you ask from a bookLike many of today’s women Mel Strickland is fed up with the uagmire of online dating Her dates are no showsshe is ghosted or worse She continually receives unsolicited pics of certain anatomical regions Gee thanks gentlemen – how romantic🙄Enough is enough Time to develop her own online app to weed out those creeps that are not truly looking for love She’s about to go head to head against the big boys at the start up company Hatch A thoroughly adorable and heartwarming book about searching for love in a digital world It reminds us that maybe love isn’t just a swipe away but perhaps standing right in front of you Or maybe even in the next cubicle over A story with some sage insight Perhaps it’s time to open our eyes and reconnect with the world We may be missing “the one” as our noses are face down in our phones and our fingers are busy swiping leftor even right Another endearing rom com buddy read with Susanne🌸Thank you to NetGalley Harleuin Graydon House and Kristin Rockaway for an ARC to read and review I didn’t even get a 100 pages in but I just had to DNF it The tone of this book was completely off and rubbed me the wrong way It felt to me that it was trying to force a message across A message of feminism adding a voice to the #MeToo movement which I appreciate but it was written in such a cliche manner it didn’t flow nor did it feel natural and so I couldn’t get behind it Neither could I see it through I REALLY wanted to love this book I really did I am a woman in IT I like to code I love the idea of this book This book missed the mark for me The whole book comes across as too preachy I am 100% a feminist and a girl trying to make a start in the tech industry but this book beats you over the head All men are bad The IT industry is full of pervs and men who excuse that behavior It’s simply not true There are pervs out there There are men willing to look the other way out there absolutelyFirst of all Mel should’ve uit that job She’s a girl who codes the industry is booming She could get a new job in no time She’s working a bottom tier helpdesk gig when she should be working in application development or even web design Her job is beneath her she gets verbally abused every dang day She does nothing to make it stop It is in no way her fault but she could take steps to make it stop Her immediate supervisor is willing to look the other way but why doesn’t she go to HR Why doesn’t she go to the owner of the company Why doesn’t she go above her boss’ head I would Nobody deserves to be talked to that wayAlex is a mostly absent character We don’t see anything from his point of view and he features only peripherally I can’t honestly say anything about his character because I don’t know anything about his character He apologizes a lot and he is sweet but distracted when they are together That’s it That’s all I’ve gotHonestly the only thing I liked about this story was the site Mel designed JerkAlert was an awesome idea Everyone that has ever used a dating app would love that idea For sure Online dating has become a minefield And making it the plot of a romance novel isn’t exactly new but it’s always entertainingThe trouble with online dating is REAL Personally I love this kind of trope The horrible and very real dating mishaps the time for ghosting and looking nothing like the profile pic – is entertaining as hell And it’s this universal dilemma that Mel is going through And while she learned it the hard way she also figured out that developing her own app might just be the way to go BTW best app ever The author should get it developed ASAPThe story is adorable and charming A light hearted romance with an overall enjoyable and entertaining plotThe female friendships in this book were amazing Really AMAZING And probably the aspect I enjoyed the most about this bookAbout the romanceI wasn’t 100% convinced about Mel and Alex They didn’t immediately click for me It could have been because I didn’t’ feel that Alex was prominent Like an afterthought he hovered around the edges of the plot but never felt present He was nice and sweet but also a bit clueless and displayed some typical male behavior that were just meh And I honestly didn’t see the attraction between the couple But for each their ownAlso I hate to say this but Mel wasn’t my kind of person Peoplecharacters that only complain but never change a thing about a situation get uickly on my nerves because I’m the opposite of it Mel should have uit and moved on It’s hard to connect with a female character if they display such opposite traitsBut otherwise the book was well written and I ended up enjoying most of the bookARC generously provided in exchange for an honest reviewFind reviews and book recommendations on my blogFind me on Bookstagram i finished this book early this morning and i can only recall such little about it just goes to show how my mind is trying to protect me from what i had to endure okay maybe im being a little dramatic because this book wasn't the WORST THING I READ but it was kinda awful it's the story of a woman who is tired of the awful dating scene where she only gets ghosted treated badly or sentunsolicited pics so in attempts to fight back against the terror she has to suffer she a professional coder makes an app where you can rate and leave reviews for terrible dates it goes viral as expected and now she's got to deal with the conseuences THAT WOULD HAVE MADE AN INTERESTING BOOK IF THAT WAS THE CENTRAL STORY however we have to deal with the main character and her painfully obvious insecurities her lame friend group and a love interest who is boring than a soggy washcloth the writing is very juvenilecliche and heavy handed on the message it's trying to give the reader like yes i love feminist empowering stories as much as the next person but i dont want to read about a main character who only pushes that as her only personality trait honestly the ONLY thing she and her friend group talk about is dating a dating app and the guys they are seeing NOTHING ELSE FJLKAFJLAJL BYE anyways nothing really got resolved in the end bc there wasn't really an issue just a lot of speculation and annoying behaviour and that's all i have to say about this book 😗✌️okay that's all i have to say good day to everyone except the characters in this book15 stars dysfunctional buddy read with ameerah azrah warda ❤️ 4 StarsRaise Your Hand if You’ve Ever Had a
