One date. One missed chance. One mission to find love.

At 31-years-old, Helen Pines is far from where she thought she would be. Whilst her ex-boyfriend is now engaged, Helen’s still eating ready meals for one, wistfully dreaming of her last first date.

Determined to give online dating a go, she matches with drop-dead-gorgeous Brody, and they hit it off immediately.

One date later, Helen’s heart is still singing. Brody’s everything she’s looking for in a man – sexy, charismatic, and the perfect gentleman. But then she receives an error message on the app… all her contacts have been deleted.

With nothing but Brody’s name and job title to go on, Helen is determined to track him down.

But despite the initial chemistry, Helen realises she knows surprisingly little about her mystery man… Was it really love-at-first like, or will she find a new love along the way?

Seriously, I actually enjoyed reading this book–not sure why this book has a low rating but for some reason, I thought this book was funny and cute.

Helen’s ex boyfriend is engaged and Helen wanted to move on. She uses a dating online site where she meets a man named Brody. The two instantly hit off each other. But neither Helen nor Brody exchanged numbers or addresses. Now the dating app is no more and Helen couldn’t get in touch with Brody and she and her friends must find this Brody. Meanwhile, while trying to find Brody, she meets a man named Ish. Now who will she choose?

I just like the multicultural background in this book–Ish is Indian (I think), Elle is Latina and Sophie is Chinese (I think). There were some funny parts in the book that will make you laugh out loud. The plot and the concept of the story is also great and unique and overall, I actually enjoyed reading this romance book. However, I felt there were some unnecessary part that kind of ruined the story but nonethless is was a good one. The ending was predictable but I actually enjoyed the reading.

If you like a cheesy romantic story with a happy ending and believe in online dating, this book is one for you–worth four stars!

Many thanks to Netgalley and HQ for the ARC. The review is based on my honest opinion only.
