My review of Click.Date.Repeat by KJ Farnham

click

These days, finding love online is as commonplace as ordering that coveted sweater. But back in 2003, the whole concept of internet dating was still quite new, with a stigma attached to it that meant those who were willing to test the waters faced a fair amount of skepticism from friends and family.

Such is the case for Chloe Thompson, a restless 20-something tired of the typical dating scene and curious about what she might find inside her parents’ computer. With two serious but failed relationships behind her, Chloe isn’t even entirely sure what she’s looking for. She just knows that whatever it is, she wants to find it.

Based loosely on author K. J. Farnham’s real-life online dating experiences, Chloe’s foray into online dating involves a head-first dive into a world of matches, ice breakers and the occasional offer of dick pics, all while Chloe strives to shake herself of the ex who just refuses to disappear. Will she simultaneously find herself and “the one” online, or will the ever-growing pile of humorous and downright disastrous dates only prove her friends and family right? There’s only one way to find out…

Click. Date. Repeat.

My Review

So I stayed up until 5 am this morning reading this book! I couldn’t put Click.Date.Repeat down!! It was highly addictive!! First off as a person who was part of the first wave of people who made online friends, who became closer than real friends, and then started online dating when AOL online was still relatively new. I’m talking I was online friends and subsequently one of the earliest people on OKCUPID before it was a online matchmakers and just did fun, fresh quizzes! In fact, I met my husband online and we chatted for 6 years before meeting (because we lived 4500 miles apart) and long distanced dated for nearly 9 years before marrying. So when I say I know something about the online social world, I’m as close to a frigging expert as you’re going to get.

KJ Farnham truly captured the anonymity, confusion, hope, excitement, overwhelming, fear and overall wtfness of trying to navigate the online dating scene. Chloe was such an insanely flawed character that it was both infuriating and oddly refreshing! even the various types of online guys she met, reminded me of some of the oddballs and genuinely decent human beings I met during my time.  Click.Date.Repeat was thoroughly entertaining! Her friends were just as messy and flawed in their own way. I loved her mother and all her yelling, judgy-ness! she had a point though!! Damn you, Drew!! 

 I will say this though, I found online dating much mIre enjoyable and less crazy than bar dating because if you’re doing it right, you could actually get to know the person, truly the way they can’t be in the middle of a bar or club. you can sometimes get to know people in a way that most of their friends and alot of their family will never get to see (in a good way). some of my best friends (practically soul mate territory here or just people who TRULY get me) are people I met online nearly 2 decades ago! 

Dating is fun, exciting, awful, stressful and exhausting in any and every form but I’m glad KJ Farnham tackled this version, especially the 2003 version of online, to give everyone a taster of what they missed! Great read all around!

Exposed Secrets by April Nichols Baker

April Nichols Baker’s Exposed Secrets Out Now on Kindle!! 5 Star reviews!

exposed secrets 2

Thirty four year old Alexandria Marie Bell appears to have it all. She is beautiful and has started a highly successful law firm in Manhattan. The only thing missing is love. Finding a man is no problem. They are practically falling out of the sky. But she doesn’t want just any man. She wants Maxwell Pennington but that can never happen. He loves control almost as much as she does. Plus he is a Senior Partner in her law firm. To top it off Alex has too many ugly dark secrets that must never come to light. If they were to cross that line she runs the risk of Max learning who she really is and he would leave her anyway. It’s best to stay single and dream about the life that she will never have. Maxwell Pennington is sexy and brilliant. He could charm the panties off any women with the exception of one. Alex Bell. She wants him. That is not a secret but what he can’t figure out is why she is so determined to keep her distance. All he has to do is find a way to break through her walls. His luck with women has not always been the best. Partly due to his control issues and partly due to his choice of women. Alex is different though. She will not just allow him to control her and that is fine with him. Nothing turns him on more than a feisty woman. They would be perfect together. But there is more to Maxwell than meets the eye. He has secrets of his own.
