Rhi thought she'd buried her hurt over Samson ghosting her, until he suddenly surfaces months later, still big, still beautiful—and in league with a business rival. He says he won't fumble their second chance, but she's wary. A temporary physical partnership is one thing, but a merger of hearts? Surely that’s too high a risk…
Best-selling author Rai taps into the modern dating-app scene with hilarious, horrifying, and relatable results, blending contemporary social issues, such as sexual harassment in the workplace and CTE brain injuries in sports, into the story. For all libraries.
... only in the masterful hands of Alisha Rai could this be a recipe for top-notch romance ... The plot from there would sound convoluted if summarized, but in practice it feels propulsive and complex, with Rhiannon and Samson navigating a web of personal, familial and professional challenges to figure out what they want from their own lives and from each other. Much rests on their memories of the strong chemistry they discovered in their first night together. At first this feels like a bit of an emotional shortcut, but the real depth — and much of the book’s joy — comes from the natural growth of their mutual trust and connection ... It’s especially intriguing to watch Rhiannon open up. She’s prickly and often emotionally closed-off, but vulnerable, too. She slips between stereotypes, always more complicated than she seems.
Rai turns up the heat and finds the funny in modern dating, from almost-dick pics to glitter grams and ghosting ... Taking the dating app business to another level, with a dose of girl power, sexual politics, and one eccentric red-headed aunt, Rai scores a touchdown. Perfect for fans of Tessa Bailey’s Fix Her Up (2019) and Alexa Martin’s Playbook series.
