How to Hack a Heartbreak by Kristin Rockway Review

How to Hack a Heartbreak by Kristin Rockway was an interesting read about smart women, romance and internet dating in all it's glory. It was a well needed break in my usual thrillers. I loved that I could sit back and relax while enjoying the story. 

If Mel's experiences with online dating is what trully happens in real life, I'm glad I don't have to live in that world! Even if I have zero experience in online dating, I really loved the story and how pertinent it is to people's way of dating nowadays.

Mel's character was intertaining and it clearly showed women can be just as successful as men in the computer world. The way she decided to retaliate against all the jerks on the dating sites was brilliant. I also enjoyed the romance between Mel and Alex but thought it could have been just a little bit more.

How to Hack a Heartbreak is a fun romance and a perfect beach read. I highly recommend this one!

Thank you to Harper Collins Canada for my gifted copy.

My rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Here's a quick synopsis:
By day, Mel Strickland is an underemployed helpdesk tech at a startup incubator, Hatch, where she helps entitled brogrammers—"Hatchlings"—who can't even fix their own laptops, but are apparently the next wave of startup geniuses. And by night, she goes on bad dates with misbehaving dudes she's matched with on the ubiquitous dating app, Fluttr.

But after one dick pic too many, Mel has had it. Using her brilliant coding skills, she designs an app of her own, one that allows users to log harrassers and abusers in online dating space. It's called JerkAlert, and it goes viral overnight.

Mel is suddenly in way over her head. Worse still, her almost-boyfriend, the dreamy Alex Hernandez—the only non-douchey guy at Hatch—has no idea she's the brains behind the app. Soon, Mel is faced with a terrible choice: one that could destroy her career, love life, and friendships, or change her life forever.
