I treated myself last night to an at-home spa night with this book in hand because…well who DOESN’T want a spa night with a book in hand?!
Thank you Harlequin and Graydon Books for gifting me a copy in exchange for my honest review.
Synopsis: By day, Mel Strickland is an underemployed helpdesk tech at a startup incubator, Hatch, where she helps entitled brogrammers—”Hatchlings”—who can’t even fix their own laptops, but are apparently the next wave of startup geniuses. And by night, she goes on bad dates with misbehaving dudes she’s matched with on the ubiquitous dating app, Fluttr. But after one dick pic too many, Mel has had it. 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 JerkAlert, and it goes viral overnight. Mel is suddenly in way over her head. 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. Soon, Mel is faced with a terrible choice: one that could destroy her career, love life, and friendships, or change her life forever.
Well, I’ve done it again. I devoured a book in one sitting! The bathtub water was mighty cold for sure! This was adorable! I especially loved the female STEM aspect in this book (speaking as a female scientist by trade myself). We need more good role-model books like this! The only thing I struggled with in this book is understanding Mel as a character. I really thought I had her all figured out, but each chapter surprised me. I felt like I was constantly going, “What are you doing Mel? I didn’t think you would do/say that!” It added for a fun twist into figuring out where the story would go. Super cute and easy read! This one comes out July 30th, 2019 and you can pick up your copy here!
One thought on “How To Hack a Heartbreak by Kristin Rockaway”
This sounds like a fun read – I’m all over books about unintended consequences and this one sounds like it has that aspect in spaces. Thank you for an enjoyable review:)
