Dull security or risky freedom - which would you choose?
With her marriage in pieces, shy Cali Summers is faced with this decision and hits the world of fast love on an internet dating app.
Using room 102 in the hotel where she works as her dating 'lair', she opens herself up to a world of sex, lies, deception, as well as personal discovery and passionate love.
With a charming F1 engineer, a handsome army officer and her adulterous ex all on the scene, a predictable love match is far from on the cards.
Review: you know I am always excited about a new Nicola May release and I saved this one for a long flight just so I would be able to enjoy it for. Start to finish with little interruption. This has Nicola's usual mix of the real life and the comedy with just enough romance thrown in but very much a realistic experience of modern romance. I love the fact that there are more and more books coming out now about dating using dating apps and getting back into it when everyone else seems to know how it works but you don't because that is reality and I love to read about real people like me doing things like I do! So I loved the concept of this book and the real ying matched up to the premise.
Now Cali, I found Cali a little difficult to get to like. I felt like I knew her instantly but I wasn't sure about her reluctance to let things go and move on but I rolled with it and by the mid-point of the book, I was really routing for her. There are a string of possible suitors for her and you know that means lots of hot men to ogle over, which you ow I am ok with. We also get to know Cali's ex Jamie quite well and I really did feel for him and the situation he got himself into. It was quite interesting because I also felt pretty invested in some of the secondary characters, Cali's workmates for example And best friend Annie, so you can see that Nicola may knows how to write a character, no matter how minor!
Of course I loved the setting of this book. This author always writes books close to home in my world and so I could picture all of the places they were going and the place Cali went for dates. I was also surprised that she could find quite so many different men I to he area! Because this is book about dating, there are some fabulous sex scenes as well, all well-written by this author and all of which I enjoyed almost as much as Calie herself. As I said in the beginning of this review, this book had a decent amount of comedy, romance and real life and it was the perfect mix and I stick by that. This is a light read and definitely something I'd recommend you pick up this summer!
