Online dating: the act in which you try to avoid the catfishes and D pics. And try not to get caught hooking up with your best friend’s brother.

With all my best friends off the market, it’s time that I, Tori Sussex, join them.
So where better to find my future husband than the internet? It’s great. I get to get all the awkward stuff out of the way and already know if I’m going to like the guy before we meet in person.

It’s a shame nothing is ever that simple.
My relationship with Colton Lane is the very definition of complicated—dirty little no-strings-attached hook-ups we’ve somehow managed to keep secret from all our friends for the past six months. We’re bound to get caught, and if I’m serious about dating, I only have one choice.

Call it quits. End our little covert booty calls for good. Tell him my parking space is off-limits to him.
It should be easy. It should be simple.
And I’m sure it would be… If only I wasn’t in love with him.

After reading Emma Hart’s most recent series, I couldn’t wait to read The Introvert’s Guide to Online Dating. Tori and Colton have had this series enemies vibe going on for BOOKS. Yes, books. Their hate is so well known that I just couldn’t wait to find out how that hate would translate to love — thin line between and all that.

My favorite thing about Tori and Colton “hating” each other was their banter. It could be mean and rude at times, but I could feel the undercurrent of attraction. They made such a fun secret couple. All the ups and downs with the secrecy and nature of their relationship felt real. I liked it all a lot. The only thing that didn’t make enough sense to me was the title. There was a little talk of online dating, but it really didn’t play as much a part of this book as I was expecting. Not that I’m complaining. I didn’t need to see Tori and Colton do too much with the online dating thing.

As with all her books, Emma Hart does a great job with the side characters. I loved how all of Tori and Colton’s friends played a part. I also loved the grandparents being involved in the story. I can’t get enough of the wacky grandparents, their hilariously named pets, and the senior center activities.

Overall, The Introvert’s Guide to Online Dating was another fun read from Emma Hart. It was low on drama and filled with many laughs. This was a good start to this new series.

  1. This is definitely one I look forward to reading. The title does seem to be a bit strange for the story, though, based on everything you said.

  2. This sounds fun! Do you think you would have to read the previous books these characters are in to get the full backstory of the enemies vibe, or would starting with this one be enough?

    1. No, you wouldn’t have to read the previous books at all I don’t think. If you know they have an enemies vibe going in, it would make sense.

    1. Yes, she does! They are a hoot. I love the animal names they come up with.

  3. The title really stands out. Sorry to hear that it didn’t really fit in with the story though. Nevertheless, I am glad this was an awesome read.
