The Right Swipe
“The Right Swipe is everything you want in a Summer read: fun, clever, and so, so sexy.” — Popsugar
Alisha Rai returns with a sizzling new novel, 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…
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Sometimes you just want something breezy and lighthearted—and that’s the perfect time for The Right Swipe. After a magical hookup, Rhiannon Hunter, the inventor of an enormously successful dating app, is ghosted, a sad reminder of why she swore off romance. But when Rhiannon’s hunky one-night stand, a former NFL player, becomes the spokesman for a rival app, things get way complicated. The first novel in Alisha Rai’s Modern Love series is a bubbly romance that’s just sexy enough to keep things interesting. You could say it’s the reason why poolside chaise lounges and giant umbrellas were invented.
Rising romance star Rai (Hurts to Love You) brings a perfect relationship to life in this luscious contemporary series launch. Rhiannon "Rhi" Hunter is a successful dating app entrepreneur hell-bent on succeeding, though workaholism is detrimental to her dating life. Samson Lima is a former football star who's drawn into the dating business by his aunt, who's shy and needs her company, a rival to Rhi's, to have a new public face. Rhi and Samson's paths cross at a conference, and they're both shocked to recognize each other: they hooked up several months prior, and Samson ghosted on the promised second date. As the onetime lovers are drawn into closer proximity, their chemistry sizzles on the page. Both Rhi and Samson are learning how to enjoy life and balance each other beautifully as they face realistic conflicts and tantalizing romance and sensuality. This winning novel will enhance any romance reader's collection.
Completely consuming and a really good read!
The characters were flat, the story line was boring and contrived and the sex scenes blah. Not up to the standards of her other books by a long shot. Swipe left on this one.
