Check It Out: The Right Swipe by Alisha Rai


This is Kelsey Patterson with the Sioux City Public Library and you’re listening to Check It Out. Today, I’m back to recommend another contemporary romance, The Right Swipe by Alisha Rai. This sizzling new novel tackles all the hilarity, pitfalls, successes, and vulnerability required in modern dating. 

Rhiannon Hunter may have revolutionized romance in the digital world with the creation of her dating app Crush, but in real life she only swipes right on her career—and the occasional hookup. The cynical CEO controls her love life with a few key rules:

--Sensitive pics are by invitation only 

--If someone stands you up, block them with extreme prejudice

--Protect your heart

Only there aren’t any rules to govern her attraction to her newest match, former pro-football player Samson Lima. The sexy and seemingly sweet hunk woos her one magical night...and disappears. Rhiannon thought she’d buried her hurt over Samson ghosting her, until she suddenly runs into him months later at tech conference. He’s still big and still beautiful—and in league with a major business rival. Samson’s the newest spokesperson for the dating website Matchmaker. 

Their reconnection turns out to be a good thing as she wants to buy Matchmaker. The two concoct a plan to work together for the benefit of both companies, strategizing about their re-budding attraction as much as they do about business plans.

Samson says he won’t fumble their second chance, but Rhiannon’s wary. A temporary physical partnership is one thing, but a merger of hearts? Surely that’s too high a risk...
