  • Refreshing

    This is modern story but with wide appeal, based in part about modern dating but primarily about the friendship between work colleagues Fran and Ollie. From the first meeting at a job interview where Fran thought he was full of himself they start working together and gradually become friends of sorts. I liked Fran, she has lots of good qualities but also human weaknesses too although she has a strong backbone when needed. I can only judge Ollie from Fran’s perspective, I think I would have enjoyed a few Ollie chapters to understand him better, especially regarding his relationship with Lou however overall you could see he had some good qualities with a good dose of charm thrown in. The chemistry between Lou and Ollie was well written but I liked that they both had integrity. Overall this is a solid rom-com of a book.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Enjoyable!

    I enjoyed this book more than I thought I would! It's a well-crafted modern take on a familiar trope. Fran and Ollie are competitors for a job and end up realizing that they make an excellent team, so much so that they become collaborators instead of competitors. Their close friendship and brilliant working relationship is not without the drama though, and they are tested time and time again. Stephie Chapman writes compelling characters and narrative that makes you want to keep reading. Reader's copy provided by #NetGalley for an honest review.

  • enemy-to-friends-to-lovers romance

    the plot may sound predictable, but it's not entirely your typical rom-com. Fran and Ollie met at a work interview. Fran is immediately threatened by Ollie's overconfidence and she felt her chances for the spot slipping away. but everything is well when both are selected for the job. When they start doing successful projects together, their primary crossing slowly fades away, and they gradually start warming for each other. Eventually, they became best friends and work spouses. Evidently Fran is instantly smitten by Ollie but she refuses to acknowledge it, because one, they are now colleagues, and second they are both spoken for. Swipe right is an enemy-to-friend-to-lovers romance. the plot is funny and sweet with a contemporary twist and is radiating with warm fuzzy vibes. I had big trouble putting it down, as I felt instantly connected with Fran. She is adorable, outgoing, and fun, and has amazing loyal friends. And don't get me started Viral hive, how can I apply to work there? Ollie wasn't my favorite character. I couldn't get over the fact that he was constantly stealing Fran's ideas. I genuinely enjoyed Stephie Chapman's narrative. I was howling when Fran broke up with Lucas! really, If you feel down, just read that passage over and over. Perfect scene! I think it took a little bit too long for the main characters to be together, for my liking, but in sum, I loved the book as a whole. My thanks are due to Netgalley and Hera books for my review copy

  • Cutesy and sweet...but brings nothing new.

    “As Harry puts it, men and women can never be friends because 'the sex part always gets in the way.” ― Nora Ephron, When Harry Met Sally I've always loved the movie, When Harry Met Sally, and it was obviously used as inspiration for this story. Unfortunately, while Harry and Sally were funny and endearing, Ollie and Fran were not. I found them both mildly annoying, and their voices sounded WAY older than the twenty-somethings they were. Their chemistry was seriously lacking. The timeline jumped forward so frequently, I guess we were to assume they were spending far more time together than we were told. My favorite part of the entire book was Fran's description of her time spent with "the musician." I literally laughed out loud, and added an extra star for that chapter alone. This is a cutesy, sweet novel, but offered nothing new. Available for purchase May 13th, 2020. **Many thanks to the publisher for my review copy.

  • Romance in progress

    3.25/5 stars! When the heroine goes for a job interview, she encounters the hero and and it was rival-at-first-sight. And when she gets the job and learns that he also works at the same company, the relationship changes. Thus begins the journey of love for the couple. This is truly an entertaining story with wonderful characters. This is chick lit with a dash of romance, focusing on how the heroine and hero's relationship from friends-to-lovers. I didn't mind the slow-burn romance though I would have liked snippets about the heroine's acknowledgement of her true feelings earlier in the story. For personal preference, I also wanted a better closure at the end. Overall, this is still an enjoyable read. **Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for the review copy.**
