Status Update: I’m going offline for a while… Wish me luck! xx
Lifestyle journalist and thirty-something singleton Melissa hashtags, insta’s and snapchats her supposedly fabulous life on every social media platform there is.
That is until she wakes up on her birthday, another year older and still alone, wondering if for all her internet dates, love really can be found online? The challenge: go technology free for a whole month!
Forced to confront the reality of her life without its perfect filters, Melissa knows she needs to make some changes. But when she bumps into not one, but two gorgeous men, without the use of an app, she believes there could be hope for love offline.
If only there was a way to choose the right guy for her…
The Secret to Falling in Love by Victoria Cooke is a novel all women can relate to…I easily read this book. Every page was filled with realities relationship goals and entanglements. Intriguing, exciting, and believable. Sexy men, online dating, set-up dates…The Secret to Falling in Love has it all. I enjoyed reading this romance. Being a single woman of 27-years, the whole emotional rollercoaster of dating was understandable. I knew what it was like to take interest in a man who turned up to be a jerk or not worthy of the heart. It’s quite frustrating and crazy. But the main character, Melissa, doesn’t give up…she keeps trying. The pressure of being single is difficult. She’s older than me and yet I sympathize with her instantly and continuously. Sexy hot men, darting, and trying to find the one is an adventure that will hook readers. I was definitely lured into the plot. The pacing of the book, was slow, otherwise it would have gotten a full five-stars. I felt that the plot lagged behind when it could have speed up in areas. Other than that, it well-written. A real life kind of character with a real-world experience and love life. Interesting…overall, I recommend it to others.
