Rhiannon Hunter faces a unique challenge as the creator of Crush, one of the most popular dating apps on the market: she was ghosted while using her own app. And her date is now representing one of her competitors, Matchmaker. As for Samson Lima, a retired pro football star, he’s representing Matchmaker as a favor to his aunt, one of the company’s owners. He’s never used a dating app except for one time when he met an amazing woman, but a family emergency kept him from their next date, and she blocked him. When the two meet again, Rhi is trying to buy Matchmaker and her trust issues keep Samson at arm’s length. But Samson is willing to use any play in his book for a second chance.
VERDICT Best-selling author Rai (“Forbidden Hearts” series) taps into the modern dating-app scene with hilarious, horrifying, and relatable results, blending contemporary social issues, such as sexual harassment in the workplace and CTE brain injuries in sports, into the story. For all libraries.
