Tour: Unlucky in Love by A.J. Renee

Unlucky in Love
Author:  A.J. Renee
Publication date: January 30th 2019

Lucky in Love.

That’s the name of the dating app I picked, hoping to find Mr. Better Than Average so I can hold off planning my future as a cat lady.

I’ve been distracted eyeballing a tall, dark, and handsome Latin hottie who works in the library with me. He is way out of my league, and a woman has needs if you know what I mean.

Finding a man shouldn’t be hard when all I have to do is swipe left or right. It’ll weed out the slimy men who have Bad Date written all over them.

Yeah, I’m learning quickly that I’m rather unlucky in love after all. The men I pick need warning labels, kissing lessons, and a good talking-to about manners.

Should I throw in the towel, or will this series of bad dates be exactly what I need to win Mr. Right?


My thoughts...

Where do I start I??? I really liked this book,, and I don't typically read new adult, contemporaries, or romance book but this was a great change. I really loved Izzy, she reminded me of a free loving version of who I think I am...I know this is very telling of me.

Any who, we meet Izzy after she's had one too many bad dates, and met frogs instead of princes. Izzy is at the end of her rope with dating in general but her roommie/bestie Val talk her into giving love one more chance.. Love, this was Izzy's main goal, she is ready to be someone's number one lady not just a random hookup. But Izzy is perpetuating the "hookup" stereotype by using Tinder, instead of Bumble or Coffee meets Bagel or just hear me out Farmers Only( I know what you're thinking but have you ever heard anything bad happening due to Farmers Only??).... Like woman if you're looking for love, stability, romance try a different dating app! I might have jumped the gun because she didn't actually use Tinder but an app called Lucky in Love...(its totally similar though..)

But nope Izzy decided to stick with Lucky in Love...I'm not saying she deserved the dates, which were terrible but ehh… I totally understand she's in grad school, and works on campus but come one! Izzy had a great guy but they hadn't met in person, which was totally fine because Izzy wanted to get to know them first. But then BAM! they meet he's still hot but a terrible kisser, I could feel her pain through the text...Like it was bad, I mean Val never let her forget that she kissed him and almost died... Girl, both of us almost died! Lolz, I loved Mario, and yes it was totally predictable but he seems like a great guy, and perfect for Izzy! I hope they make it, and all that gushy love mess works out..

I did not like the sex scenes at all! I was okay with the kissing, heavy petting, but bruh the actual, factual sex scenes...Hated it! That was one of the reasons, I do not read new adult romance books but I still loved Unlucky in Love. The sex scenes did not take away from the book, I personally could have done with out them but I digress. And yes, I could have skipped them but that's not how I read books! My rating 4.9/5 

(yes, I took away .1 for the sex scenes don't judge me)
