Dating-ish by Penny Reid
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I reviewed on behalf of Book Addict.live,
I must say I fell in love with the Mad AI scientist Matt, and Marie the journalist that had given on dating, especially after going on a date to meet a mature bearded man who is her perfect match, and meets someone else completely. At first Marie finds Matt irritating, but gradually he starts to grow on her.
Marie (one of our knitting crew) and Matt (previously met and adored) come together in a story that is romantic and heartfelt and smart and funny. Dating-ish is a book that will speak to and appeal to a large audience. Anyone who has ever felt the very real pressure and struggle of dating will commiserate with an exasperated Marie.
The unrealistic expectations for both men and women seeking companionship will feel a kinship with both Matt and Marie. The adventures of dating and the alternatives to them are explored in this book. Marie is looking for her right person, and you will be cheering for nerdy, adorable Matt along the way.
Knitting in the City fans will get more glimpses into the group and what has been happening since the last book in the series. Dating-ish really shows the depth and the progression of their friendships and how they have branched out to include their partners as well. Dating-ish is a real winner for me, and I can’t recommend enough.
At times I was laughing out loud, my husband was quite jealous. This is a witty and sexy book. A must read for fans of Penny Reid.
I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
