    Online dating has become a minefield And making it the plot of a romance novel isn t exactly new but it s always entertaining.The trouble with online dating is REAL Personally I love this kind of trope The horrible and very real dating mishaps, the time for ghosting and looking nothing like the profile pic is entertaining as hell And it s this universal dilemma that Mel is going through And while she learned it the hard way, she also figured out that developing her own app might just be the way to go BTW best app ever The author should get it developed ASAP The story is adorable, and charming A light hearted romance, with an overall enjoyable and entertaining plot.The female friendships in this book were amazing Really, AMAZING And probably the aspect I enjoyed the most about this book.About the romance I wasn t 100% convinced about Mel and Alex They didn t immediately click for me It could have been because I didn t feel that Alex was prominent Like an afterthought he hovered around the edges of the plot but never felt present He was nice and sweet, but also a bit clueless and displayed some typical male behavior that were just meh And I honestly didn t see the attraction between the couple But for each their own.Also, I hate to say this, but Mel wasn t my kind of person People characters that only complain but never change a t...

    I REALLY wanted to love this book I really did I am a woman in IT I like to code I love the idea of this book This book missed the mark for me The whole book comes across as too preachy I am 100% a feminist and a girl trying to make a start in the tech industry, but this book beats you over the head All men are bad The IT industry is full of pervs and men who excuse that behavior It s simply not true There are pervs out there There are men willing to look the other way out there, absolutely.First of all, Mel should ve quit that job She s a girl who codes, the industry is booming She could get a new job in no time She s working a bottom tier helpdesk gig when she should be working in application development or even web design Her job is beneath her, she gets verbally abused every dang day She does nothing to make it stop It is in no way her fault, but she could take steps to make it stop Her immediate supervisor is willing to look the other way, but why doesn t she go to HR Why doesn t she go to the owner of the company Why doesn t she go above her boss head I would Nobody deserves to be talked to that way.Alex is a mostly absent character We don t see anything from his point of view, and he features only peripherally I can t honestly say anything about his character, because I don t know anything about his character He apologizes a lot, and he is sweet, but distracted, when they are together That s it That s all I ve got.Honestly, the only thing I like...

    I know it s only January, but without a doubt, How to Hack a Heartbreak WILL be making my top books of 2019 list I absolutely loved this story from start to finish Mel Strickland is fed up with being a tech professional in a male driven industry, but even than that, she s sick of the current dating environment being sent inappropriate pictures before even exchanging a word, being ghosted, being stood up with no apology so when Mel goes out drinking with girlfriends, she stumbles home and decides to create a little website called JerkAlert as a goof, where women can rate the jerk s they ve gone out with to warn other women of what s out there There was so much about Mel I found myself relating to and ugh, in the whole online dating swipe culture situation , I quite possibly thought Rockaway was observing me and my friends while writing this hello SoulCycle references I was finding every moment...

    3.5 stars I hadn t heard about this book until it was pitched to me and I was intrigued at the synopsis I liked Melanie She s smart and loyal and has a great set of friends I loved seeing a woman coding and the strong female relationships were fantastic Mel s friends were supportive and all amazing I would easily read a story about any of them I won t say much about Alex because spoilers , but I will say his actions are tempered by Mel s POV.Plot wise, it was okay The tech stuff wasn t too tech y and the guys were ju...

    Please note that I received this via NetGalley This did not affect my rating or review.Well this was downright delightful I really got a kick out of Rockway s book and the characters she introduced in this one Besides the main character of Mel, she has some really awesome best friends Whitney, Lia, and Dani and a great roommate Vanessa I loved the book taking a look at women who are very good at coding like Mel and how hard it was to break into the tech world due to the douchebros that seem to inhabit it The writing was very crisp and the flow was great I loved the romance and the ending How to Hack a Heartbreak has 20 something year old Mel ready to hang up dating She has used all of the dating apps, and the latest craze, Fluttr, is still not providing her with a guy that actually wants to date her After being stood up and receiving one redacted pic she has enough After being egged on by her friends, she sets up a site called JerkAlert which women can anonymously post to about guys they have met or messaged on Fluttr After JerkAlert goes viral, Mel also finds herself trying to start a relationship with her coworker Alex and wonders if she can trust him, or is he a jerk in sheep s clothing God, I felt Mel I still am on some dating apps, but don t even check in any Once you have someone send you a picture of ...
