Disheartened about not being able to find “Mr. Right” on the London dating scene, best friends Jodie Lynch and Louise Hewson create a blog to not only document their disastrous dates with the numerous “Mr. Wrongs” and “Mr. Okay-for-nows” but also to help those going through the same experiences and to see where they’re going wrong. How will they deal with everything the dating scene has to throw at them — planned or otherwise?
Sipping her hot coffee, Jodie Lynch tapped in her login details to check how well the latest blog post had been received. The stats were through the roof, and there were almost thirty comments awaiting approval. She’d never expected that writing about the nonexistent sex life being experienced by her and her best friend Louise Hewson would garner so much attention.
Ever since they’d started the blog six months ago after suffering yet another dire date with someone who wasn’t what they’d ‘advertised,’ the friends had begun to enjoy the torture of dating. Back then, Jodie had sat with Louise drinking cheap rosé into the early hours and lamenting the lack of decent, single, honest men who still had their own hair and teeth. That wasn’t too much to ask, was it? Without thinking and under the influence, Jodie had pulled out her laptop and set up the blog. She’d been thankful that she hadn’t posted anything that evening, and she had almost deleted the blog altogether once she’d overcome her hangover the next day. However, after to speaking with Louise, Jodie had decided to go ahead with the no-holds-barred outlet for their frustration. She read the last post back before looking at the comments.

And with this first paragraph we begin a not quite year-long journey in quest to find love for two best friends who have grown weary of the dating scene. They start a blog to showcase their experiences and in doing so they meet some interesting people. If you’re looking for a nice and fun look at the world of dating and friendship and how blogging can and does affect those involved, then this is definitely the story for you. There’s only 46 pages but a lot of fun is packed into those 46 pages.
“So, there you go. Our next step? Who knows? Maybe when one of us posts again, it will be another big announcement. You’ll just have to wait and see.”
And with those final words, we are treated to a perfect blend of actual experiences and dialogue mixed with blog posts we learn where our characters, Jodie and Louise are taken on this journey, I highly recommend tagging along for the ride.
