I am thrilled to share my review with you today on blog tour for Swipe Right by Stephie Chapman
Love could be a click away… Or in the last place you expected.
When Fran meets Ollie, it’s eye roll at first sight. Who does he think he is – with his Ray-Bans, piss taking and artfully styled hair? Forced into working together at Viral Hive, the trendy media content agency, at first they butt heads, but soon realise that they could be BFFs. Fran’s happily settled with boyfriend Lucas, while Ollie is fully committed to girlfriend Lou.
But when Fran’s relationship crumbles, and Ollie sets off with Lou for a round-the-world trip, she decides to start an anonymous dating column, detailing all the perils of dating online – from the bloke who angrily demanded she share the bill when she refused his clumsy advances, to the one that ended their date by weeping into her cleavage – even if it seems that all the good (or even normal?) men are hiding. Maybe there aren’t plenty more fish in the sea?
But, on her dating journey of discovery, Fran’s about to learn that sometimes love can be where you least expect it… you just have to put down your phone.
This hilarious romantic comedy is When Harry Met Sally for the Tinder age – will make you laugh and cry! Perfect for fans of Mhairi MacFarlane, Lucy Vine and Sophie Ranald.
After reading the authors debut novel and loving it. I jumped at the chance to read Swipe Right. Which I have to say is a totally different read in comparison. The author brings us fresh new characters and a totally uplifting, funny read. Perfect for the times we are living in at the moment.
Stephie has done a brilliant job of portraying how awful dating experiences can be. I honestly felt like this book was wrote for me. Yeah I am single and my dating history isn’t the best having met a few folk online and this book brings a few of my experiences to life, and boy did it make me laugh.
I felt an instant connection with Fran and Ollie they are brilliant characters who I could relate to. They feel real and jump out of the pages at you. I would be happy to have them has my friends that’s for sure.
This is a perfect uplifting read which will have you engrossed from start to end. Stephie Chapman is a new firm favourite of rom com authors of mine. Which I highly recommend. If you are looking for a fun, quirky, fresh read then this is the book for you.
