Guest Book Review: Mr. Right Swipe

By Shana Javery

Rae Wallace would rather drown in a vat of pinot greezh and be eaten by her own beagle than make another trip down the aisle--even if it is her best friend's wedding. She's too busy molding the minds of first graders and polishing that ol' novel in the drawer to waste time on any man, unless it's Jason Segel.

But when her be-fris stage an intervention, Rae is forced to give in. After all, they've hatched a plan to help her find love the 21st century way: online. She's skeptical of this electronic chlamydia catcher, but she's out to prove she hasn't been too picky with men.

However, when a familiar fella's profile pops up--the dangerously hot substitute teacher from work --Rae swipes herself right into a new problem...(Synopsis courtesy of Goodreads.)

As I started to read this book I really thought I was too old for it. I mean, what do I know about dating in the 21st century??? I’ve been married for 25 years! But within a few chapters I was hooked!

The main character, Rae, tells the story of her experience with one of those dating apps that certainly wasn’t around when I dated. Her dating adventures with the men with whom she “matches” are humorous. No matter how long you’ve been out of the dating scene, there’s a lot to make you laugh in this book. And if you ARE currently dating…well, Rae can read your mind! I enjoyed this book all the way to the last page. It was just a feel-good, make you laugh kind of book. The only challenge I had was figuring out some of the acronyms in this book. LOL? No problem. LMAO? I got it. After that…I’m a little lost. Thank goodness for context clues! Two of the best parts of this book are the relationship that Rae has with her two best girlfriends, one of whom is about to tie the knot.

The other thing is her hysterical hashtags, which pop up throughout the book and made me chuckle constantly. (Even LOL!) Bottom line? Want something light and fun that will put you in a good mood? Grab a copy of Mr. Right Swipe, pour yourself a glass of wine…or two...and treat yourself to this light-hearted book.

Thanks to Grand Central Publishing for the book in exchange for an honest review.

Recently, Shana even had the chance to edit a friend's book, something which she thoroughly enjoyed. Shana resides in Plano, Texas with her husband and the family dog Smoochy. Shana's renewed interest in reading is partly due to her empty nest, something she doesn't enjoy as much as others might.
