what I mean.
This was a cute read. Izzy is jumping back into dating, and trying it with the help of an app/online account. She has several horrible first dates, and even dates one guy for weeks before the crazy comes out. All the while, she is in grad school getting her Master’s Degree, working on campus, and drooling over Mario. When she’s spooked by a man following her, her boss sends her out with Mario to take her mind off the incident. But will he be another bad date?
What I liked: It was a fun read. Izzy and Val have a great friendship, and Jerry is a great boss/father figure for Izzy. I liked Mario a lot, too.
What I didn’t like: I’m not sure. I enjoyed this book, but didn’t love it. I think it’s because I’m definitely no longer near Izzy’s age so I didn’t really connect, but that is not a fault with the book or author. I think anyone who has ever dated can relate to the bad date stories!
Overall: It was a fun book. Cute and entertaining.

The door behind me opens as I toss the spoon into the sink and lift the mug to my lips. The satisfying liquid warms my insides, and I can’t help my sigh even if I tried.
