    Description

    Swipe right for love. Swipe left for disaster. 

    By day, Mel Strickland is an underemployed help-desk tech at a start-up incubator, Hatch, where she helps entitled brogrammers - "Hatchlings" - who can't even fix their own laptops but are apparently the next wave of start-up geniuses. 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 harassers 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. 

    Kristin Rockaway†is a native New Yorker and recovering corporate software engineer. After working in the IT industry for far too many years, she finally traded the city for the surf and chased her dreams out to Southern California, where she spends her days happily writing stories instead of code. When she's not working, she enjoys spending time with her husband and son and planning her next big vacation.

    This kind of story does nothing for women in tech

    As a female web dev, I was super excited to read this story and was hopeful as the writer was formerly in tech herself. However, as the storyline continued, it just kept getting more and more stereotypical. The female lead vacillated between wanting to appear confident and never directly addressing the problem with the person she actually should have been talking to in the first place. Her work environment was the kind of brogrammer club that is incredibly outdated in the industry. Instead of advocating for herself and getting the hell out of a job that was making her miserable, she just stayed there. All around, the lead’s behavior was way too unrealistic for me to believe. I wanted to throw my phone across the room a few times because she just wouldn’t get out of her own way and address anything in her life directly. Her biggest problem in her life wasn’t her job, her lack of love life, or the dick pics she was consistently getting, but herself, and she never once addressed that. I couldn’t finish this one, and I was so hoping it would be a positive book about women in the tech industry doing good things in a male dominated field.

    SO relatable for me!

    Kristin Rockaway basically took a page from my life and wrote about it. I as a female have worked in male dominated environments all my life. Even to this day I'm in IT - so the feelings of being made less than by male colleagues (whether they know it or not)) hits VERY close to home. I can totally relate to times in my past where a task or an interesting job was given to a male co-worker because the dinosaurs called my boss thought the females weren't as intelligent as the men, and the men could react or think faster on their feet than the women....Yup, this book sucked me right in and I empathized with the main character from the beginning. That's where the similarities end. For such an intelligent character, our heroine should have done more research when and documented more in order to cover her butt and not leave herself as vulnerable as she did. I liked this story, I found it relatable but I found the story line ended too quickly for me. It's like the epilogue says -this happened, that happened - the end! It's almost like there was a rush to give every character a HEA - when I felt it could have melded / blended better.

    very cute,relatable and funny

    didn't want to put it down. a fun refreshing rom-com. the story was cute. modern day romance where the lead wasn't perfect. she was like many women in the dating world. she put her scorn to good use.

    Hooked into the story and couldn’t stop listening!

    An avid fan of audio books, I’ve noticed that not every piece of creative fiction is well represented in audio book form, particularly this genre of character driven story....this is very well narrated and the carefully crafted and the talented pros the author constructed come through! Great book! So fun! She really created and entire world and feels so very relatable.

    A very intelligent and realistic story of a smart techie woman's life in the dating app world. Relatable and likeable characters. Good narration.
