Apr 02, 2017 rated it really liked it
I’ve never tindered in my life. In my younger years you only met your new love interest through friends or you just had to pluck up the courage to step up to a complete stranger. That’s also how Cali met Jamie, but after 12 years and being married a little over a year he traded her in for ‘their’ personal trainer. And now times have changed and Cali has to catch up with modern dating if she doesn’t want to spend the rest of her life stuck at home with a foul-mouthed parrot.

There is quite a lot I want to say about this book, but I'm going to need to be careful of potential spoilers. My overwhelming feeling after finishing Love Me Tinder is that it could be made into a fabulous romantic comedy film, as it has all the elements there already, and I can see it easily on a big screen.

This was one of those books that had me giggling to myself from very early on, and I just didn't really stop throughout. Love Me Tinder is very easy to read, with lots of short chapters, t

I loved every page of this novel it was so addictive; it’s fun, flirty, fruity storyline kept me fully engaged and entertained and I had to know what happened next.

Cali was still feeling very heart broken from the break-up of her marriage to Jamie. It’s been a year since he walked out of their marriage and into the arms of their personal trainer.

Cali’s emotions were still quite raw but she felt like she needed to move on and joined up to the dating app Tinder. As a Tinder virgin she wasn’t use t

SO funny, trendy, romantic and easy to read! Love the characters The story was a great blend of stable and unstable friends Great read
Nicola May is an author who has a very whitty sense of style in her writing. This book was a great mixture of fun, flirty and of course romance. Nothing x rated, so I know it will appeal across the board to all readers of traditional rom-com. The fact that Cali is on the cusp of a major life change is sort of sad, but for me the author made it an expected event. T

Review: you know I am always excited about a new Nicola May release and I saved this one for a long flight just so I would be able to enjoy it for. Start to finish with little interruption. This has Nicola's usual mix of the real life and the comedy with just enough romance thrown in but very much a realistic experience of modern romance. I love the fact that there are more and more books coming out now about dating using dating apps and getting back into it when everyone else seems to know how ...more

We all know that all is fair in love and war. But when you suddenly find yourself thrown back into the dating world, it soon becomes obvious that modern dating is, in fact, a war zone. And this is exactly where Cali Summer's life is - thirty, and soon to be divorced, after her husband ran off with their personal trainer. Having dedicated most of her adult life to her ex, Jamie, Cali has no idea how to get over what has happened to her. But when a friend suggests that a certain dating app is the ...more

As someone who has put in her time in the trenches of online dating with her share of bad first date stories (thank goodness those days are done!) but did so before the days of Tinder, I was intrigued by the premise of this book. And what a delightful read it was! Fun and light, this book had me hooked from the start kept me turning the pages with a smile until the end.

Cali was likeable as a protagonist and someone I was rooting for, in spite of (or perhaps because of) her naïveté. There were so

Gunna be honest, I really wasn’t a huge fan of this. The plot was a little all over the place and I didn’t have a particular like to any of the characters. I also found the voice REALLY Grating to listen to which didn’t help.

Well, this book was a bit of a eye opener for me to the world of online dating! Cali was cheated on by her Husband and decides to put herself out there on Tinder. Before I read this I knew nothing of Tinder, after reading this I can see how it could bring love and it can bring laughter, mix ups, disappointment and fun! For Cali , it brought a novel load of laughs and a few experiences that she won t forget!

There was a brilliant side line character called Lady P, who is an African Grey Parrot. H

I have to admit, Chick Lit is not my usual choice but as I had organised this promo for Nicola I decided it would be good to read and review the book as well.

I took to Hotel Events Manager Cali straight away. Having spent twelve years with Jamie Summers, getting married seemed the natural thing to do. But nine months after the wedding they are divorcing because he now wants to be with his blond bimbo trainer Bella. In the middle of her divorce, Cali is not in a good place. However, she has great

This was a funny (laugh out loud in places) book - a perfect holiday read. An eclectic mix of characters and at first you cannot believe Calis antics (I won't give anything away) and I went from feeling slightly exasperated with her to feeling sorry for her. But not to worry - she isn't a complete pushover and the outcome isn't what I had at first feared.
This is my first book by Nicola May but it certainly won't be my last and I would like to thank her for my advance copy in exchange for an hone

Chapter 17 made me really uncomfortable

SPOILERS to follow and TW for maybe not fully concesual sexual activity...
Okay so I am only 76 pages into this book and I've decided that it is going to remain a 1 star DNF. It's a rom com and it's played off light hearted and funny. The tone is definitely not meant to be serious and it worked for me. Its not my usual type of book but I was enjoying it. The flow seemed nice enough and it was starting to sit at a solid 3 star read for me. Until

I listened to this on audiobook.

This was a thoroughly fun and entertaining story from start to finish, not to mention a pretty good representation as to how internet dating can be and that it pays to be careful so are not to become a victim to fakes. Of course it does also show that internet dating can work too, you just have to be careful, not too trusting to begin and to use your common sense, which unfortunately the main character in this story didn't always do.

I enjoyed the story, getting

Laugh and smile (and cringe) at the antics of internet dating. Callie has split from her cheating husband after being together 12 years. Her social life is in the doldrums and so she decides to join Tinder, the dating app. For anyone who has dated on the internet you will recognise some of the characters.for anyone who hasn’t had this experience - prepare to smile and grimace!

It was such a good book. This is about love, how trust is important in a relationship, mixed feelings and being confident about yourself.
This book came in an exact moment of my life when I needed someone to tell me the dangerous of online dating, but that also could be wonderful and quite an experience to meet someone online. There are so many bad intended, but also so good people online and we need to know how to distinguish them.

Damn that Nicola, it’s 3.15am and I couldn’t put the blooming book down.

I have written before read it in one but this one was the fastest most enjoyable one yet ! Reminded me of my dating disasters from a while ago! Thankfully pre tinder! Ironically ending with my own handsome officer (now snoring hubby lol)
It was a fabulous laugh out loud, cry ur heart out and tiny bit 50 shades. You are a new author for me started with the cockle-bay shop books and now this one. Just loved your writing like

This was a great book. The story is about a women whose husband leaves her for a younger woman after less than a year of marriage. While that in itself is sad, this is not a sad story as the women then starts dating using the Tinder app. Her adventures into the crazy online dating environment are sweet, hilarious, sad and a bit raunchy. The story however is deeper than you would think and is multi-faceted. I laughed out loud at parts of this book and loved the depth of the story and the relatabl ...more

This is a book for anyone whose serious long term relationship has failed. It is a search and a process that lots of us can relate to. In my experience of online dating a lot of men dress up wanting a relationship when actually all they require is just sex. That’s ok if you are both on the same page. This also covers internet dating where women are flattered by someone who does it to obtain money from them. Sadly this is on the rise during this COVID-19 pandemic situation that we find ourselves ...more

I was lucky enough to win a copy of this book in a goodreads giveaway. And I'm so happy I did! I absolutely adored this book - I even ended up taking it to work with me because I couldn't wait the whole day to find out the ending (I had 10 pages left!). For anyone who has ever been on Tinder, you will definitely have one or two moments where you can't help but laugh as you relate to similar experiences. Highly recommend! ...more

Different from the normal chick lit. A good storyline with believable characters. Realistic but also entertaining and a nice read.
