St. Martin’s. Feb. 2021. 336p. ISBN 9781250761996. pap. $16.99. CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE
Annika Dev believes in happily ever afters, and she believes her app, Make Up, will help struggling couples work through their issues and achieve that goal. While she’s working to get the app off the ground, Hudson Craft’s app, Break Up—an Uber for breaking up that has suspicious similarities to Make Up, is gaining popularity. And while Annika would like to ignore Break Up and Hudson, the company just moved in down the hall. As the two prepare to compete for an angel investor, Annika tries to remind herself that Hudson’s involvement with Break Up is a deal breaker and that he’s likely just messing with her mind. But the more she gets to know Hudson, the less cutthroat he seems, leaving Annika to question whether to trust her gut and take a chance on love.
VERDICT Packed with heart, humor, and multiple swoon-worthy moments, YA author Menon’s adult debut brings a welcome zing to the romance genre that is sure to have wide appeal.
