The Right Swipe – Published 2019
“Alisha Rai returns with the first book in her sizzling new Modern Love series, in which two rival dating app creators find themselves at odds in the boardroom but in sync in the bedroom.
Rhiannon Hunter may have revolutionized romance in the digital world, but in real life she only swipes right on her career—and the occasional hookup. The cynical dating app creator controls her love life with a few key rules:
– Nude pics are by invitation only
– If someone stands you up, block them with extreme prejudice
– Protect your heart
Only there aren’t any rules to govern her attraction to her newest match, former pro-football player Samson Lima. The sexy and seemingly sweet hunk woos her one magical night… and disappears.
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…” – Goodreads
WHAT I LIKED
Yes. 100 times over, yes. I loved this book. I actually read its sequel, Girl Gone Viral first on accident, not knowing it was a sequel. So when I started this one, I was apprehensive, because I didn’t think I would like the characters as much, but I was wrong. I love that this author creates such swoon-worthy guys who repeatedly are NOT screwing up. They just straight up want to be good guys in good relationships.
Rhiannon (Rhi) is a strong, independent woman. She’s fierce, she’s well-spoken, she’s got baggage, and she goes after what she wants. Samson is caring, passionate, and actively seeking advice on how to not mess up a date. They’re so compatible and perfect for one another, and I was rooting for them the entire way. Even when Rhi is trying to deny her feelings. They have an arrangement that is physical only, but we all know how that goes in romcoms!
This is another quick read for someone looking for a great romcom with some depth!
WHAT I DID NOT LIKE
Nada. Just makes me thankful I met my husband prior to dating apps! Yowza.
