City girl Lucia is having trouble finding a man. With a few nudges from her friends, she decides to try out Chat Love, an online dating service for New Yorkers. Hilarity ensues with one disastrous date after another…where do these men come from? Mars? Certainly not Manhattan! She finally meets someone from work who is almost perfect, but decides to move on as he’s still seeing other women. She keeps in contact with a man named Jack on the Chat Love site. Could he be the one? What about her love interest at work? Just like the lovable cast of characters from Sex and the City, Lucia is Carrie, a stylish woman who has found her “Mr. Big” but can’t seem to get him to commit. Danni is Samantha, who loves to have fun and is wild and promiscuous. Autumn is Charlotte, desperate to meet the right man and settle down. Skyler is Miranda, level-headed and quick to offer advice. Will these ladies ever find love? Will Lucia find her man? Chat Love will give you something to talk about!
I am not entirely sure how I felt about this book!
So the book follows a girl who hasn’t had the best luck in finding love yet all of her friends are finding love with online dating. She is skeptical but her friends sign her up and she eventually gives it a shot. She is about to give up when she starts chatting with a guy that intrigues her. But is she also falling for her playboy co-worker. Does she follow her heart and go for her co-worker? Does she stick to online dating and finally meet the guy she is chatting with? Could Jack and Jackson possibly be the same person?
The plot idea was a good one. The characters were well thought up and written. I did kind of struggle with the flow and pace of the book. I felt like parts of the book dragged or could have used a little work. But for the most part it was a good read. I’ve had this book on my TBR pile for a little while and am glad I finally took the time to read it.
It was a fun and interesting take on the online dating scene. I have been there and done that with about the same results as Luce(?). I would recommend the book if you are looking for a fun read.
