I’m always looking for a solid palette cleanser and Mr. Right Swipe, by Ricki Schultz, seemed like just the book to give me a little something different! Rae is looking to find love after her divorce the 21st century way: by going online. When one of her hot co-workers ends up on her dating app, she swipes herself right into a new problem!
There were lots of funny moments in this book and some one-liners that had me laughing out loud. Ricki Schultz is clearly quick witted and that transfers over to her prose.
However, so much of this book seemed so young. Half of the time I struggled with the way the characters spoke and I struggled with the use of the hashtags. #ifeeltoooldforthis #idontneedthisasimreading For a character that is in her early thirties, I felt like this made no sense and it didn’t feel as if they were being used ironically. I kept picturing her as Amy Poehler in Mean Girls (you know where she states she isn’t a regular mom, she’s a cool mom). I think I would have loved this novel WAY more if the language would have made more sense for a thirty something or if the character would have been in their early twenties. I couldn’t take Rae seriously.
I gave this one 2.5/5 stars.
Thanks to the author and the publisher for the copy of Mr. Right Swipe; it was my pleasure to provide an honest review
