Dating-Ish by Penny Reid


There are three things you need to know about Marie Harris: 1) She’s fed up with online dating, 2) She’s so fed up, she’s willing to forego the annoyance and consider more creative alternatives, and 3) She knows how to knit.

After the most bizarre and irritating first date in the history of human kind, Marie is looking for an alternative to men. With the help of her friends, she quickly identifies a few possibilities:

Need a cuddle? Use a professional cuddler. Need affirmation? Get yourself a life coach. Need an orgasm? Try orgasm meditation! Why does she need the hassle of a romantic partner when she can meet all her needs with paid services?
But then her irritating date resurfaces. And he’s not at all the person she thought he was. And he suggests a different—and crazier—solution to her dilemma . . .
As everyone knows (or will soon come to realize), traditional relations between humans are a thing of the past. Robots are our future. And if robots are our future, then why do we need other people at all?

5 Stars

I stayed up way past my bedtime last night because I just couldn't put the book down. I was a book junkie at the moment and NOTHING, not even the much sleep I needed was going to keep me from this book. 

Marie is putting her best book, I mean foot forward and going out on a date, with an online perfect match. What she doesn't bargain for is Matt. Obviously not the man from the profile, a liar instead! Balderdash!! After some heated words, she is off, little does she know, Matt is friends with her friends and is not her friend. With the help, or hindrance of Matt, she is set to write an article based on buying companionship. No pros, but other things. How do they stack up to a real relationship and then it will all culminate to an article about the Companion AI, that Matt is building. 

Matt has some secrets up his sleeve. Things he wants to show Marie. He is nerdy and unsure of how to proceed with his feelings towards her. Until one Friday night, when he realizes how bad she must hurt due to his actions. He has to make this write. And in true Matt fashion, he fumbles his way thru and proves his actions to Marie.

What Matt and Marie don't know is that slowly, but surely they are falling down the rabbit hole of love. Will it be too late when they realize it? 

I love both Matt and Marie. Matt is such a nerd and asks the most inappropriate questions, but he genuinely doesn't seem to know. Marie is a good sport and helps him through the awkwardness of a situation or two, or many. They mesh well together. Matt is Marie's ZING! I love the ending. That sealed it for me. Realizing what he wanted

I could continue gushing about this book, but what you really need to do is pick it on and read it!!

All that remains are whispers of the past…
When multiple body parts are recovered from the Little Ogeechee River in Savannah, Georgia, local law enforcement calls in FBI agent and profiler Brandon Fisher and his team to investigate. But with the remains pointing to three separate victims, this isn’t proving to be an open-and-shut case.
With no quick means of identifying the victims, building a profile of this serial killer is proving more challenging than usual. How is the killer picking these victims? Why are their limbs being severed and bodies mutilated? And what is it about them that is triggering this killer to murder?
The questions compound as the body count continues to rise, and when a torso painted blue and missing its heart is found, the case takes an even darker turn. But this is only the beginning, and these new leads draw the FBI into a creepy psychological nightmare. One thing is clear, …
