Description

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....

Great story, odd narrator choice

This was a great contemporary romance and I really appreciated the diversity of the characters but I was a bit disappointed that the narrator for Rhiannon isn’t a Black woman. I’m not sure why this choice was made and Summer Morton did a great job, but the story and character felt less authentic. It also made the importance of having a Black woman be the main character and fall in love feel sort of tainted. Otherwise I loved the book and really appreciated this modern love story! Wish I had read it instead of listening to the audiobook.

Cute read

Adorable romcom feat a black woman with a brown man(my fave). Interesting plot but sometimes brought down by the fact the heroine, a dark skinned black woman was hard and callous the entire book. She never softened or felt vulnerable for her hero which I like to see in a romance, especially written by an AOC who isn’t black.

Cute idea

I liked the story. Cute with a bit of “extra”. But my problem with this overall was and I realize I’m making an assumption here but if the heroine was meant to be black why have a white narrator? As a woman of color if you only hear my voice I’ve been described as sounding shite too but I hated she didn’t sound black at all. It really bothered me and took away from the authenticity of the story. I purposely purchased since there are so few women of color as the lead in romance and I was sad that direction was taken especially since the author is a woman of color as well. IMO. Otherwise, I liked it

such a great modern day romance

if you want a simple yet very modern romance this is the book for you. The characters and writing had me hooked from the first chapter. If you are someone who loves sappy Hallmark and Netflix romance movies but wish the female characters were just a little more developed, DON'T HESITATE! THIS BOOK IS FOR YOU!

p.s. I've seen a lot of reviews talking about if the main character is black why doesn't she "sound" black? As a black woman who has been asked almost weekly why I don't sound black, I can assure you that black women and any women of color can "sound" a multitude of ways other than the stereotypes that society perpetually gives us.

Hilarious, timely, Rom-Com!

The Right Swipe is the first book in the Modern Love series and I devoured it. It was funny, sweet, and sexy in all the right places. The chemistry between Rhi and Samson is on fire. Pick this up for a great digital age Rom-Com!

overall nice storyline, but..

the store was nice I love the ending it moved kind of slow in the beginning didn't think I could really get into it especially since the man did the male voice and the female and the female did both voices to just would have been nice if they stuck to the voices for their gender and character

Resonates With My Heart

I loved this book! I found myself being enthralled by the story and scene created. I found parts of myself in the main female character, "Re".

There were moments of twists and adoration. Hope filled my heart and brought a smile to my face. I created bookmarks and had to rewind and listen to sections again. The more erotic scene were sensual and alluring. Excellent.

Realistic love

Often when contemporary books get into the modern age of swiping they portray characters as super cynical, hook up obsessed (then shame them for it which is dumb), or out of the way cruel. This book did an excellent job of portraying the characters in a very balanced way. Everyone’s thoughts and feeling were genuine and made sense. The conflicts the characters faced are complicated and the solution to these problems is done in a satisfying way with ought feeling like love saved the day. Also the diversity of characters is great the author and the narrators don’t rely on outdated stereotypes to portray the characters everyone is created in a very fleshed out way and I’ve said this a million times but everyone is super realistic and relatable. Definitely worth the buy especially if your looking for something that’s different, will make you think while still being enjoyable.
