Rhiannon Hunter developed a dating app called Crush after she was forced to leave her old employer Swype. Now her app is one of the most successful on the market and she wants to cement her position by buying a more traditional online dating business called Matchmaker. Unfortunately the owner is being elusive so Rhi gate-crashes a tech conference party just to meet her rival, instead she comes face-to-face with the new spokesperson of Matchmaker who just happens to be the super-hot guy that she hooked up with one night several months ago, who made plans for a repeat performance and then ghosted her. Even more galling, on her app he had indicated that he was only interested in a hook-up whereas he is now claiming to be looking to settle down.

Samson Lima, former NFL linebacker, has agreed to assist his quasi-aunt Annabelle by being the spokesperson for Matchmaker, after all its what brought his parents together. The marketing campaign is that Samson will date a series of girls on camera and hopefully find true love. When he sees the gorgeous woman he hooked up with across the room he can't wait to catch up with her again.

Samson's first date is an unmitigated disaster, he says the wrong things and ends up throwing a glass of red wine over his date's white dress. But he has a cunning plan, why not link up with Rhi and get her to give him dating tips, on camera, a kind of old meets new marketing strategy between Crush and Matchmaker. It's a great idea and really popular but Samson is falling for Rhi in a big way.

Loved this book: loved Samson who was kind and funny and considerate; loved Rhi who was driven and brilliant and vulnerable; loved the cast of memorable friends and family. A new author for me but one I will look out for.
