3 OnLine Dating, Craig's List Searching Stars * * *

If you have been single during the last 20 years or so... you have probably experienced online dating. For some... it has been an adventure with happy outcomes... for others... not so much.

This book by Audrey Harte uses this as well as the city of Los Angeles as the backdrop for the first in her series. We are introduced to Annie... a regular 20 something gal who seemed to have horrible experiences with men. Her first real boyfriend was a wanna

I have had the pleasure of reading Love in All the Wrong Places from the very beginning. Audrey is such a talented writer and if I didn't know any better, I would think she has been writing for years. But nope, this is her debut novel and it is awesome.

Love in All the Wrong Places centers around a young girl that is unlucky in love. Like most of us, we have met people in bars, at parties, etc. and it hardly ever works out. Now in this day and age, there are dating websites. Annie (the heroine)

Love In All The Wrong Places by Audrey Harte is a story about a girl who is looking for love. She definitely goes about it in a crazy way and tries to find a guy through Craigslist (hahaha...yeah wasn’t too sure about that). Unfortunately sometimes you have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find Mr. Right, and Annie has definitely kissed a ton of frogs. Wanting to put herself out there after being off the market for a while, Annie writes an a

Hmm okay I have a lot to say about this one so I will start with good first. Audrey Harte has an easy flow to her style of writing. She also can write some heat in a very nice way. There are a lot of very good reviews for this story so obviously some people are finding it to their liking. I am giving it a two because Audrey flows so nicely. I don't like this story but I think I might enjoy something else by Audrey. This book actually elicited a lot of emotion from me, mostly being anger, but at ...more

So, it has taken me 2 days to really think about how I am going to write my review for this CRAZY MESSED UP dating journey that Annie, the main character, takes us on. Why did it take me 2 days?Well......this book was absolutely flipping CRAZY MESSED UP but in a VERY GOOD WAY. For me, the book started off a little slow and at times monotonous.

Annie is desperate to find love. She's tried the normal routes of dating but after being used and abused she gives online dating a try. She feels skeptical about paying for an online dating service so she decides to post her profile on Craigslist.
She gets multiple emails back but is hesitant and selective. Her first serious date is with Gabe. Theirs was a very sexually oriented relationship. Sizzling, swoon worthy! Hot! But it wasn't only about that, he was attentive and romantic , went out of h

AWESOME!!! Loved this debut book and it really was hard to believe it was her first book. Audrey is so talented and a natural at writing. The main character Annie is one of those that you want to slap one minute and then hug the next. I literally found myself yelling at my kindle "oh you are not going to..." and saying “aww he’s so sweet”. It was hot and steamy but just enough to be believable and that it could all happen to anyone and I really liked that. I can’t wait to see what happened next. ...more

Oh, Annie!

I cracked up at her text messages and emails to these guys on Craigslist, of all places. Haha. I truly loved this book and all its spunk, steam, and emotion. I could totally feel for Annie. She's a girl looking to be loved and the poor thing can't catch a break. And when she does, that darn Audrey Harte leaves us hanging ... in a good way of course. But, dang it, Audrey! I'm one impatient person and I want that sequel, like yesterday!

Love in All the Wrong Places is that kind of book that hold your attention and you can not stop reading it...Even though I think Annie is a little too naive, I love her and want Mr. Right to show up soon, can't wait for the next book :)(got to say that I was in love with Gabe for awhile, is he coming back on the next book? PLEASE)

Wow! Loved this story! Audrey Harte writes as this story as if you are sitting right next to one of your best girlfriends hearing what is new in her life. You feel this connection to the main character as if you have known her forever. I can't wait to start the sequel....right now!

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!

After many different tries at dating and reinventing herself, Annie finally decides to post an ad in the personals section of Craigslist Los Angeles. She cannot believe that she is actually trying online dating. Annie receives many responses from a smorgasbord of men. Many of them are obscene and ridiculous in their responses and suggestions. Annie finally finds one that she agrees to meet at a bar for drinks. Could this be the man that she is looking for? Annie c

Annie is definitely my type of girl. She’s smart, multi-talented, athletic, independent, witty, and beautiful. She gives her all, especially to those she cares about. However, there is one major dilemma. Annie has a huge problem when it comes to finding love in all the wrong places. Hence the title... Hehe!

After several failed relationships, Annie decides to place an ad on Craigslist in hopes of finding Mr. Right. I do not want to spoil the story by saying who she meets, what happens, if she fi

Annie is a 25 year old single woman living in LA. After experiencing bad relationship after bad relationship, she decides to try her hand at online dating. Not just any online dating though.....she doesn't want to pay for it, so she uses Craigslist.

I won't give the story away by describing what happens, but Love in all the Wrong Places walks us through Annie's experiences with Craigslist dating.

I find online dating fascinating, so the premise was very interesting to me. We saw the a

Annie, oh, Annie. She is a young woman desperate to love and be loved. So desperate that she decides to try dating online. And chooses to use Craigslist to find love. You know that can’t lead to anything good! Annie has spunk and a fun attitude. I was a little turned off by her use of marijuana…it didn’t add to the story for me all that much. Annie has had a rough go of it with men though and seems to truly want to find ‘the one’. I loved the use of emails and text messages between her

Annie just wants to find someone who will love her. She's had some really bad experiences dating. When we first meet Annie I just wanted to dive in and pull her aside. She gives so much of herself in a relationship, but the guys she had been dating didn't give her anything in return. I could relate to her and her struggles to find a decent guy.

Annie is smart, loves to cook and sing, athletic, and does some modeling. She can be impulsive and makes some bad decisions regarding the men she dates. S

I absolutely loved the debut novel from Audrey Harte. This book is a book about all the bad things that can and do go wrong in the world of online dating. It’s an easy light hearted read that I seriously enjoyed. The story revolves around Annie and her quest to find love. The story starts out with her in an actual relationship that starts like most but quickly learns that it was not meant to be. She wants to find happiness and love but she looks in the wrong places.

Honestly, I just couldn’t get into this book. I guess it wasn’t for me. The main character, Annie seemed to me to lack any depth. She was a 20-something year old young woman working at a ho-hum job while looking for someone to share her life with. Now, that’s not all that uncommon for real life these days.

I tried, but I didn’t find anything special or unique about her. Annie was sweet and giving, almost too giving to a fault. To me, she came off as rather desperate. I couldn’t connect with her i

This was a very enjoyable read and I would recommend this to a few of my friends.

From the first moment I stepped into the book I instantly could compare Annie (leading lady) with a friend of mine--looking for love in all the wrong places. She gives a 150 percent of herself to the guys she’s been with only to end up broken hearted when they don’t return it. So we meet her desperately longing for a great guy.

Within the first few pages I was grinning because everything the author, Audrey Harte, wro

Wow, what a cliff hanger! :) So I really enjoyed this cute story A LOT. It's not typical, which I liked. Most of the love stories I read, the girl claims to be "awkward, unattractive, anti-social, etc." Annie has guy issues, but overall, she is confident,knows she's beautiful, knows she's fit, knows how to flirt and be sexy, has her own apartment, etc. She's very mature, and that was a breath of fresh air. It was really nice getting a different perspective, and a lot of what happened in the book ...more

Very good book! Audrey Harte as a lovely, smooth writing style that flows and reads easily. Her main character, Annie, feels real and typical of her age. Annie is smart and capable, but not quite sure where she is headed yet. She does know she is lonely and hoping to find Mr. Right. Her experiences with dating and online dating will probably ring true for a great many of us readers to some extent. Although we may not have had all of the experiences she did, I bet many of us have had at least one ...more

I really enjoyed reading this story of a young girl trying to find someone to reciprocate the love and affection she gives. Failed relationship after failed relationship, Annie looks to the internet in hopes of finding love. Of course she turns to Craigslist wanting to check it out and see what it's all about. After a few failed attempts and one heart shattering experience, Annie is lost. Will she find she is looking for or is she destined to be alone?

I found myself relating to Annie. I too was there at one point in my life, going from one short term relationship to another. I laughed a lot at how much Annie and I had in common, This is a very realistic story of what not to do to find love. I couldn't imagine going on Craigslist to find a mate. I know people do it all the time, I have a friend that uses sites like Plenty O Fish or whatever that sites called. I found this story to be light, sexy and it kept my interest.

As if looking for love in LA isnt hard enough lets look for love on the internet and find even more shenanigans to deal with. I am not at all against online dating because I have done it myself.
