Love Hacked by Penny Reid: Review!

Book: Love Hacked Series: Knitting in the City #3 Author: Penny Reid Synopsis: There are three things you need to know about Sandra Fielding: 1) She makes all her first dates cry, 2) She hasn't been kissed in over two years, and 3) She knows how to knit. Sandra has difficulty removing her psychotherapist hat. Of her last 30 dates, 29 have ended the same way: the man sobbing uncontrollably. After one such disaster, Sandra--near desperation and maybe a little tipsy--gives in to a seemingly harmless encounter with her hot waiter, Alex. Argumentative, secretive, and hostile Alex may be the opposite of everything Sandra knows is right for her. But now, the girl who has spent all her life helping others change for the better, must find a way to cope with falling for someone who refuses to change at all.
DARRA's Review:

Okay, so we met Penny this past month and have been all about her books. I bought Love Hacked and Sunny bought all three. Yes, she is the hoarder of us. But Sunny owns it! We had to get the books. Penny is Hi-Lar-Ious. We only assume if the author is as interesting in person, the books had to be good. BTW-Best Signed notes by Author by far.

It is true, the book was awesome. Dry humor is something that seems to be a dying breed these days. But Sandra takes the cake. She is the best friend I never had. Sad, but true. If a woman can just have a normal conversation with a man and leave him crying during the date..well Bravo. Quick comebacks and great shirts for each occasion. I loved actually reading about people that scored above a 1300 on their SAT Scores.

And about Alex, hot damn. Genius never sounded so sexy before. If any of the nerds in high school looked like him and was the computer genius of the world when I went, I would have gladly signed myself up for some overachieving AP courses! Alex is by far the most secretive guy. Good reasons yes. Paranoid, absolutely. But when you read the book, you will find out why he sneaks around like a man on a bad acid trip.

So...my review? Forget reading this and buy the book! Penny is smart, witty and entertaining all rolled into one author. Great characters, interesting plots, and Original.

I rate the book a 4.8. Book is muy bueno.

About the Author
Author Photo Penny Reid
SEX! It all started with sex, between my parents. Personally I don’t like thinking about it, but whatever works for you is a-ok with me. No judgment. The sex happened in California and much of my life also occurred in that state until I moved from the land of nuts (almonds), wine, silicon… boobs, and heavy traffic to the southeast US. Like most writers I like to write, but let’s get back to sex. Eventually I married and gave birth to 2 small people-children (boy-6, girl-4 as of this writing).
