She’s smart, funny, easy going (When she gets jealous we may see her claws, but she’s still adorable) Her girlfriends are definitely copied from Sex and City characters and guess what I liked Samantha’s version Whitney so much! Her job is beneath her, she gets verbally abused every. I'm only 50% through but I'm not sure how much I want to continue.
(She’s also PR woman, sticks to her one night stands, intelligent, competitive, straightforward but she’s still a wonderful, caring good friend) I think she needs her own book! The love of your life could be working in your office, or sitting next to you in a bar, or standing right beside you on a crowded city street. Otherwise, you might let the one get away." Much thanks to Edelweiss, Harper Collins and Graydon House for sending me an ARC. There are men willing to look the other way out there, absolutely. What I loved most about HOW TO HACK A HEARTBREAK was Melanie.
And by night, she goes on bad dates with misbehaving dudes she's matched with on the ubiquitous dating app, Fluttr. Using her brilliant coding skills, she designs an app of her own, one that allows users to log harrassers and abusers in online dating space.
It's called Jerk Alert, and it goes viral overnight. Worse still, her almost-boyfriend, the dreamy Alex Hernandez—the only non-douchey guy at Hatch—has no idea she's the brains behind the app.
Special thanks to them and to Net Galley for providing me this such an amazing, lovely romance in exchange for the most honest review! One wrong date through Fluttr (dating app a la Tinder) sent Mel to a coding spree, then developing the website Jerk Alert, where females can dish about the bad dates and unsolicited dick picks they encounter in the online world. There are men willing to look the other way out there, abs I REALLY wanted to love this book. This was far from the lighthearted rom-com I thought it would be.
In this day and age, we all know how important that is!
If you’ve ever had an experience with online dating, you know how humiliating it can be. You have to read this novel to find out for yourself.
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.
They rarely disappoint, I’m always entertained, and they leave me feeling satiated at the end. Like many of today’s women, Mel Strickland is fed up with the quagmire of online dating. She continually receives unsolicited pics of certain anatomical regions. Once again I find myself smiling wide through another fun rom-com!
