for love or she says she is not At the age of thirty Chloe undeniably has a great passion in her life and that is photography When she is accepted to take part in an exhibition curated by the notorious Grayson Gates her spirits lift.After spending another evening at a book club with one of her best friends, Emma, who chases after The One like a hound to a fox, she is surprised to find an email from a Mary Polt In this email Mary mentions seeing her at the book club and would love to introduce her to her boss, the Swiss democrat and aspiring author Christoph Kostas With a reluctant but can do attitude Chloe agrees to swaps emails, thus embarking on a whirlwind of online dating The story was full of passion, Chloe has known one thing and that is that she wants to be a photographer With the continuous love expressions mixing with the technicality of photography we are pulled through some romantic notions For me the love and desire Chloe feels for photography brought me back to when I was fourteen and picked up a camera for the very first time helping me to embark on a career as a photographer I felt a connection to Chloe right away To me, nothing isproductive than finding a gem, and even though it may be tunnel vision and not practical, viewing the final print is the reward A photographer has the power of choice, to hold within each image what we want other to see From the get go we can see Chloe is a very loving individual humoring her friends and just altogether enjoying life When Emma begs Chloe to attend a book club because Emma is determined the host is her one funnily enough his husband sits next to Chloe on the first night this picks up a new journey for her When receiving an email from Mary Polt a secretary of Christoph Kostas expressing she would love to match the two Chloe is a little taken aback, at first she ignores the email thinking someone is pranking her until she receives another one, this time attached is a photograph Chloe hesitantly agrees to swap email addresses with him One thing was for sure, whether it was considered rational or irrational, a fictional fairy tale of a daily part of reality, love itself was capable of pulling people out of their depth, making the weak stronger and the strong weaker Love was an enormous promise Within days Christoph introduces himself, being quite the gentleman they both hit it off right away They exchange numbers Due to her acceptance of the exhibition Chloe has a rough and laboring time ahead of her creating and then showcasing her concept for the exhibition which is called Love Through Light Through the first few days Christoph is nothing but a doting and caring man reading to her in the evenings, portraying himself as this ideal image of the perfect man Right away I felt uneasy with Christoph he just appeared to push his feeling out there, but with the building connection between the two and how sweet and loving he has been it s hard for Chloe to give up and walk away, what if he really is the one Christoph is a very manipulative man, when we notice Chloe starts pulling away he encloses on her, being forceful with his thoughts and words With still not meeting after months of talking, Christoph appears to be wanting too much out of her in such a short space of time I found him to be quite nasty as he sends her cryptic messages confusing her evenHis words made my accusations of him never intending to be here doubt they entirely made sense Was he this sentimental fool and not a game player Losing me would have just been part of the game I found the relationship very poisonous It s clear that Christoph is affecting herthan she comprehended Chloe s life and passion has been photography and at this vital time in her career but Christoph s selfishness messes with her head so much that during the story we see her passion waver causing her to question herself a lot This is a truly great and an educational story There has been such a rise in online dating it is very much a necessity to find a mate, and with stories such as this and TV shows films such as Catfish we are shown a darker side to online dating I ll be looking out forof Kamm s novels in the future.COVER ART The cover is quirky and creative, I especially love the heart between the polaroids the only problem is as a whole the cover looks amateurish I would like to seeof a dark cover, to bring out the sinister vibe of the story, if not that maybe aregraphic cover

    Did I enjoy this book I really didn t I found For Internal Use Only to be slow and rather boring and not at all humorous I guess I was expecting somethingakin to chick lit This is not chick lit, or humorous It was a bit of a let down from the blurb I didn t like Chloe Kassidy She wasn t an engaging character, I didn t care about her She was wishwashy She s talented in photography but lacks confidence She s so focused on her career yet she is falling so hard for Christophe, someon Did I enjoy this book I really didn t I found For Internal Use Only to be slow and rather boring and not at all humorous I guess I was expecting somethingakin to chick lit This is not chick lit, or humorous It was a bit of a let down from the blurb I didn t like Chloe Kassidy She wasn t an engaging character, I didn t care about her She was wishwashy She s talented in photography but lacks confidence She s so focused on her career yet she is falling so hard for Christophe, someone she hasn t even met yet, that she can t get her gallery pieces together.Christophe is a jerk, an ass, one of those I m so great, can t you see how I only make you better type of guys He just made me angry from the very first moment we met him Christophe is abusive One minute he s all sweet, the next he is telling Chloe how she can t see how much he loves her and that he is the best thing that has ever happened to her And what really irritated me about Christophe the ending, notwithstanding because that was really bad was that he kept calling Chloe baby and asking her what she was wearing Gross.Chloe s friends were all very snobbish and condescending The married couple treated her like a helpless child who couldn t make decisions for herself And Chloe let them I hated Chloe s one line about how having a meal ruined is like being robbed of natural childbirth That s ridiculous and one of the many reasons why I disliked this book I really hated the ending Just no No UGH I wish I had DNF d this book.Would I recommend it I would not.Will I read it again I will not I received a copy of this book for review purposes
