A Tale of #LeftSwipes, #NotMyTypes, and #Vodka
Rae Wallace would rather drown in a vat of pinot greezh and be eaten by her own beagle than make another trip down the aisle--even if it is her best friend's wedding. She's too busy molding the minds of first graders and polishing that ol' novel in the drawer to waste time on any man.
But when her best friends stage an intervention, Rae is forced to give in. After all, they've hatched a plan to help her find love the 21st century way: online. She's skeptical of this electronic chlamydia catcher, but she's out to prove she hasn't been too picky with men.
However, when a familiar fella's profile pops up--the dangerously hot substitute teacher from work--Rae swipes herself right into a new problem...
Sarcastic, irreverent, and uproariously funny--the painfully-true, so-insightful-it-hurts kind of funny--Ricki Schultz's wry debut will speak to fans of Bridesmaids or Trainwreck, and to anyone who's ever been on a bad date.
Relationships are hard, especially when you have been burned a time or two. For Rae going on a date is like walking the plank. They will all end badly at some point. This has been one of the funniest RomComs I have ever read. This is my first time reading a Ricki Schultz novel and I know it will not be my last. Her witty sarcasm and fun characters in Mr. Right Swipe has created a forever fan in me and I will be looking for more. Any book that will have me literally busting out in laughter no matter where I am at is a book worthy of its genre.
The best part is that it has a fantastic emotional story as well. Behind all those giggles and belly laughs we have characters that we can relate to and become attached to. We also can get a little peeved at them as well. Then we add the hottie and he is not only smoking hot he is sweet and just as sarcastically funny as Rae. This book does not focus on a sexual relationship but on building something real and I have to say THAT was nice and refreshing. Not to say there wasn't enough sexual tension to sink the Titanic but the real romance and emotion building was the important part.
Love, Friends and Life are not easy and this book gives us a great glimpse into a set of friends and their bid to win one of their own a love for life. As with all friends most plans go awry and that is when it gets interesting. This has been one of the best books I have read in the last few weeks and I would VERY highly recommend it to all who love a hilariously funny romance with a lot of snarky sarcasm.
