MR RIGHT SWIPE by Ricki Schultz was a genre cleanser for me – gotta have something lighthearted mixed in with all the thrillers and mysteries! This is definitely a book I can see people either loving or hating – I don’t see much of a middle ground. If you don’t want to read in hashtags then I’d say move on (I know that can throw a lot of people off or when texting abbreviations are used.) But if you want to read about a snarky and funny heroine, then this is for you!

Rae Wallace is a witty and sarcastic woman. She’s too focused on molding the young minds of 1st graders and potentially finishing her novel – she doesn’t have the time or energy to waste on a man. However, when her friends decide that enough is enough, they make her create a profile on an online dating app. While skeptical, she’s out to prove her friends wrong in that she isn’t too picky when it comes to men. She runs into a problem though, when Nick’s profile pops up (the hot substitute teacher at her school) and she swipes right.

With some of the slang, abbreviations, and hashtags used I can see this turning some people off. Typically I try not to read any reviews before starting a book, but I’m glad that I glanced at some before reading. I knew what to expect – otherwise I probably would have been more in the 3/3.5 star range. While Rae can come off as selfish at times, she ends up being a character you can relate to and like. Her use of the app is great and how she interacts with some of the profiles – if you’ve used it then you’ll appreciate it! Some great secondary characters and friendships thrown in made for a good light, quick, and genre cleansing romance.

If you want something more contemporary and can handle the text speak, then I’d recommend this!

I give this 4/5 stars! I enjoyed it for what it was.

A big thanks to Grand Central Publishing for the copy in exchange for my honest review!
