Forced to confront the reality of her life without its perfect filters, Melissa knows she needs to make some changes. But when she bumps into not one, but two gorgeous men, without the use of an app, she believes there could be hope for love offline.
If only there was a way to choose the right guy for her…
Melissa is 35 and she hopes to find love and start a family. She spends a lot of time on social media and also dating apps, but still her love life isn’t going that well. On her birthday, she realizes that she’s not getting any younger and as her online dates haven’t been successful, she decides to go technology free for a month. At first it isn’t easy, but as the time goes by she starts to notice things she didn’t before and she also happens to meet two handsome men. What will the challenge change in Melissa’s life?
When I read the blurb it piqued my interest, but when I read the book, it turned out to be excellent. I really liked how the author described people being addicted to their phones without seeing what’s going on around them as well as how difficult can life be for a 30+ year old single woman, who actually really hopes to find true love. The book was filled with great humor and realistic moments, when found myself nodding along with the main character’s thoughts. All in all it’s a great book and I’m definitely looking forward to more books by the author.
