Description

Alisha Rai returns with the first book in her sizzling new Modern Love series, in which two rival dating app creators find themselves at odds in the boardroom but in sync in the bedroom.

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

  • Nude 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.

Rhi thought she'd buried her hurt over Samson ghosting her, until he suddenly surfaces months later, still big, still beautiful—and in league with a business rival. He says he won't fumble their second chance, but she's wary. A temporary physical partnership is one thing, but a merger of hearts? Surely that's too high a risk…

Critic reviews

  • Rhiannon Hunter created one of the most successful dating apps on the market in this rom-com, but she's stopped swiping for Mr. Right after being burned so many times. "The Right Swipe" is lighthearted and full of prickly people with tender hearts that will have you reconsidering ghosts from your past.

    This was different nothing like I thought it would be! Loved the different characters but Samson was my favorite!

    I’m just melting !
    This book was everything !
    The characters were great, the love story was great, the overall plot. And it touched on so much more ! I love the sport aspect and how it affected Samson’s life ! The story is just full of depths. It’s not just the love story, that is also very good ( no bad drama or whatever ) but it’s about so much more important things.
    The book is **inspiring**. And if that’s not mind blowing when it comes from a romance I don’t know !
    Plus I need to say, I love Samoa ! I mean The Rock please. And my boyfriend. It just added something to it.
    I loved it. And would absolutely recommend. Favorite romance so far.

    SO GOOD! could barely put it down; amazing storyline filled with 3d characters that weren’t just the main characters. made me want another story just for the other characters as well, they were all just filled with life!

    The beginning really pulled me in but then it started to drag a little. However, it picked back up again but when it got toward the last section of the book I felt like it was being rushed and then it was over. I couldn't believe it ended just like that. I was still waiting for other things to happen and it was a huge let down knowing the book was over.

    What a wonderful romance with a powerful heroine. And that end sentence is just so good ?

    Can you forgive someone for ghosting you?

    I loved this second chance romance. It really tackled the strength in how vulnerable you have to be to love someone. If you want a happy ending to help you get through this stressful times, pick up this book?

    Loved the characters and cute story line

    Good, but, reading previous comments, I expected more... Too long, predictable, already seen...
  • (4/5)
    I was very excited for this one and very grateful when a friend sent me an advance copy. I was a little worried as this was pretty hyped, but I ended up really enjoying it.

    I really loved how Rhiannon and Samson. I love their banter, how they meet, and how their relationship progressed over time. They were just so cute.

    This does deal with some heavier topics such as sexual harassment and athletic injuries.

    Overall, I really enjoyed this one!

    Awwwww. It had what I want in a romance. Strong female lead, and a solid storyline. Plus for it both main characters being people of color!!
  • (4/5)
    I really like how the relation has developed between the main leads slowly through the book , and how the girl power is shown here is really intemedating ?

    Absolutely loved the story. Alisha is such a great writer.
  • (5/5)
    The reading was excellent! Not overdone. The story itself was interesting. I enjoyed the lack of insta-love. The African American Woman representation was AWESOME! No mad Black Woman syndrome here. It's important that Black women be allowed to feel the same level as hurt as other women without feeling as though they'll be labeled because of it. Ree was hurt, on guard, but able to hold her own. Sampson was vulnerable, ready to love, but fearful. It was a cute story. Only 3 sex scenes if I'm not mistaken and they are easy to spot and fast forward past if that's not your thing.
