Alisha Rai returns with the first book in her sizzling new Modern Love series, 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…


I requested this one because it seemed like a great read for our time… I mean who hasn’t swiped right? Or left for that matter. I was a huge fan of the diversity within the book, it added a definite feel of it being modern. The romance in this one left nothing to be desired.

The story itself was quite unique and very easy to connect with. The whole cast of characters added to the story and were genuinely there for a purpose. Everything about this one lives up to it’s hype.

If you want a modern day romance, here you have it. The world of swiping right is quite literally right in your face. I’d say this was a solidly written book with a great story!
