Synopsis: Katrina’s Lesson in Social Media Disasters
or How Technology Can Bite You In The A**
Katrina Phillips is an expert social media manager. But that doesn’t mean she can’t make mistakes. Horrible, hide-in-your-closet-forever mistakes... like accidentally syncing her BootyBook app with her online profiles.
Blammo. Now everyone in the world can see who Katrina has dated and how they rated in appearance, sexual performance, and (OMG) detailed descriptions of their manly parts! Now her phone is blowing up with irate exes—and an out-of-the-blue text from the only guy who came close to a perfect score...
Katrina has had a thing for Drew Jordan since forever ago, even if a booze-fuelled one-nighter did destroy their friendship. So why is he suddenly texting her now—and is it because she rated his Sexy Staff Of Manliness as “magnificent”? Now the only way to satisfy her curiosity is to reunite with Drew... and rate him all over again!
What I Thought:
When I first read the blurb for the book I thought, "Oh my goodness, that would suck and be so embarrassing!" My second thought was, "That's a really cool way to get someone's, or a lot of someone's attentions. Especially when you haven't seen them in a while." Of course the book is also written by Erin McCarthy, an author whose books I've enjoyed before so I was quite eager to read it.
While I liked Katrina and Drew, something about the story failed to click with me. I read it quickly which was good, but something still felt missing. I liked how quickly Katrina and Drew reconnected and I got they still had chemistry, but it felt like they fell in bed first instead of figuring out how things went wrong between them.
I liked the concept and the characters. It's written well but I just didn't get sucked into it like I expected. I'm still a fan of Erin McCarthy's writing and look forward to her next book.
