This novel is delightfully light reading for YA/Adults! This story offers humor and hope in the “dating experience”.
About the book:
After losing her job, her house, and her guy, the last thing Gabby wants to do is be in a dating experiment—especially with her ex. Her only chance of making it through is with help from her best friend, Ian. But as the study and all its hilariously awkward dates goes on, Gabby finds herself wondering what exactly this experiment is all about.
Gabby had graduated from the University with a BA in teaching but after losing her first job, nobody would hire her. She ended up I’m the “temp pool” of an agency doing work as a psychic. Like her “life’s story”, her adult life wasn’t much improvement over her High School years! After some disasters in relationships her roommate persuaded her to become a part of “The Dating Experiment”.
Join the author in this humorous, yet sometimes, touching tale. Enjoy the adventure and challenges ending up in surprising ways.
The story was interesting and inspiring – the trials many will relate to.
The only problem I found is the writing lacked “energy”. The readers will feel a lack of connection to the characters because of it. The scenes were quite visual but were slightly weak. It lacked in a totally “smooth flow” but not to the extreme.
This was very entertaining but could have been better written.
I feel it rates a 3 1/2 Stars rating.
*This book was gifted me but in no way was I required to do a positive review. This is my honest review.
