Book Description - MR. RIGHT-SWIPE
A Tale of #LeftSwipes, #NotMyTypes, and #Vodka

Rae Wallace would rather drown in a vat of pinot greezh and be eaten by her own beagle than make another trip down the aisle--even if it is her best friend's wedding. She's too busy molding the minds of first graders and polishing that ol' novel in the drawer to waste time on any man.

But when her best friends stage an intervention, Rae is forced to give in. After all, they've hatched a plan to help her find love the 21st century way: online. She's skeptical of this electronic chlamydia catcher, but she's out to prove she hasn't been too picky with men.

However, when a familiar fella's profile pops up--the dangerously hot substitute teacher from work--Rae swipes herself right into a new problem...

Sarcastic, irreverent, and uproariously funny--the painfully-true, so-insightful-it-hurts kind of funny--Ricki Schultz's wry debut will speak to fans of Bridesmaids or Trainwreck, and to anyone who's ever been on a bad date.
Okay, I admit that I did not finish this book and I know that I will take a large hit because of that. I will also admit that this book was probably NOT geared towards anyone of my age, so I probably shouldn't be so harsh in my condemnation of it. I will say that I added a star since I believe that many others will love and appreciate this book much more than I did. However with what I did manage to finish, I found the premise of this book to be smarmy, the language difficult to understand, the character's unlikable and the idea of it all to be cliched. This is a case of what was popular ages ago merely being updated to today's standards and that is where the age of the reader may play a big role in the liking or not liking of this book.
