Annie Chang is in her mid 20s and has lived in Los Angeles all her life. After a series of failed relationships, she’s beginning to feel like she will never meet Mr. Right. But seeing one of her longtime BFFs find love on the internet, she decides to give online dating a try.
After finally finding an amazing guy who sweeps her off her feet, will he prove to be everything she could have wished for and more or is he too good to be true?
To say that Annie Chang is unlucky in finding the right guy is a gross understatement. In fact she seems to attract all the wrong men like a magnet. After several failed relationships she attempts to seek out companionship on the internet. She doesn’t really have much luck with this either… There are several attempts with men that fail quite miserably yet again and Annie is left wondering if she will ever find a man who appreciates and loves her and isn’t a complete jerk!
When she isn’t looking a guy sort of appears out of nowhere… Could he be the one? Well you‘ll need to read along to find out…
While reading this book I had to feel really badly for Annie. She really does have some bad relationships. Just when you think she is getting somewhere there is a slap in the face moment and it all blows up in her face. This poor girl… I really felt for her because I personally wouldn’t want to be out there in the dating world in this day and age, there are so many creepy people. I did feel like Annie was trying to be someone she isn’t in order to find a guy. She’s a beautiful girl and a has a BIG heart. She just needs to look in the right places, what they are I have no idea but it appears that that internet for her doesn’t work so well… There was a bit of a surprise at the ending and of course I cannot tell you what that is because it would totally ruin the story… But I can say that there is a second book and this kind of left us hanging not knowing what was going to happen with Annie… Did her mystery guy turn into everything she hoped for? Your guess is as good as mine on that one, because we have to wait till the next book to find out where this story goes…
It was a good read. It took me a bit to get into the characters but by the end I did really like Annie and truly felt bad for her and her path she had taken and her now confused state over what to do next… This story is fairly unique. I haven’t come across anything sisimilar out there which is hard to do. The market has been saturated with a lot of stories that are similar so when you find a unique one it is truly refreshing!
Audrey is a great writer. The story was very well written and very clean. A lot of first time novels come out and aren’t always cleanly edited, so BIG KUDOS to Audrey for putting out a great book for her first time… I‘m interested to see what happens next. I felt the beginning of the book was a little slow moving, but once it gets going it moved pretty quickly. It could have used a little more angst and a little more depth to some of the scenes but overall it is a really nice quick read.
I give this one 4 stars and I am excited to read the next book to see where Annie’s search leads her because I need answers…
