Love at First Like

~ I received no compensation and opinions are 100% my own or my family. ~

Synopsis (from Amazon):  Named a Best Book of Summer by GlamourBuzzFeedCosmopolitan, and many more!

From the author of Playing with Matches, the rollicking tale of a young jewelry shop owner who accidentally leads her Instagram followers to believe that she’s engaged—and then decides to keep up the ruse.

Eliza Roth and her sister Sophie co-own a jewelry shop in Brooklyn. One night, after learning of an ex’s engagement, Eliza accidentally posts a photo of herself wearing a diamond ring on that finger to her Instagram account beloved by 100,000 followers. Sales skyrocket, press rolls in, and Eliza learns that her personal life is good for business. So she has a choice: continue the ruse or clear up the misunderstanding. With mounting financial pressure, Eliza sets off to find a fake fiancĂ©.

Fellow entrepreneur Blake seems like the perfect match on paper. And in real life he shows promise, too. He would be perfect, if only Eliza didn’t feel also drawn to someone else. But Blake doesn’t know Eliza is “engaged”; Sophie asks Eliza for an impossible sum of money; and Eliza’s lies start to spiral out of control. She can either stay engaged online or fall in love in real life.

Written with singular charm and style, Love at First Like is for anyone growing up and settling down in the digital age.

One (or more) Sentence Summary: Love at First Like is a perfect book for the dating world  and social media of today. Eliza and her sister Sophie are co-owners of a jewelry store in New York.  They get by, but their lease is up and the rent is going to go up significantly.  While Eliza is trying to figure out their options, she accidentally posts an "engagement ring" on her instant gram account stating she is engaged.  Given she is an influencer, congratulations and offers for free wedding items appear over night.  There is only one problem, she has no finance (or boyfriend).  I won't give away the ending, but Eliza does end up falling in love. Funny and quick read.
