    Virtual Match, a match made in reality!

    Welcome to Virtual Match! I loved this online premise to meeting someone, except for the interesting curveball of Ronnie (Veronica) wanting to get her family off her back for being 30 and single. Life is unexpected and although initially on edge about Ronnie's prospective virtual boyfriend, Marcus (aka Michael) I have to say the the ensuing "text" relationship they develop is both witty, sweet, and holds a little bit of sexy. This short read turned out to be delightful, although I have to say the ending felt too abrupt for me. Then again, I fell in love with the couple so much so I simply wanted just that little bit more.

    2.5 stars for this novella

    Ronnie Shay has zero interest in a boyfriend. Her mom, however, thinks that she's an old maid. To get her off her back, she signs up for a program called Virtual Match. This allows her to have a fake boyfriend, without well, the boyfriend. Everything seems to be going well until her fake boyfriend wants to meet. That's when everything unravels. This is an easy read and the author definitely has a deft touch with dialogue. However, I found myself wanting more. The end is very abrupt, leaving me wondering how Ronnie was going to handle Marcus meeting her family as Marcus and not the fake boyfriend. The author mentions that Marcus had experience some type of trauma at some point in his life, but what that trauma is, is merely hinted at buy never explored. Ronnie herself has a deep childhood trauma that is why she doesn't want to date. There is also the inherent dishonesty plot line. I don't want to get into spoilers but I'm not sure if the actions taken by one of the characters - even if that character just couldn't manage social interactions - are forgivable. It was definitely a part of the plot that I wanted explored more that wasn't. In the end this had a lot more potential than it showed and could have benefited as a novel rather than novella. 2.5 stars

    Where's the ending?!?

    **I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book** I wonder in what world the author of this book thought this was a completed story? This story left me high and dry and wondering what happens now? Ronnie still isn't comfortable being around men, Marcus is still self-conscious of his geeky-ness, and her family has no idea what happened to her or that she lied about how she meet Michael Bond/ Marcus. Opposites attract is the oldest saying that we tell people and in the case of Ronnie and Marcus that saying is true. However, I wouldn't call what they had was attraction...After Ronnie discovers who Michael Bond is the story just kind of ends with them setting terms for a fake double date with her brother.
