Description

Named a Best Book of Summer by Glamour, BuzzFeed, Cosmopolitan, 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 fiancE. 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.

Professional reviews

"Narrator Rebekkah Ross has the perfect feminine voice for romance novels. And even with the uniquely feminine quality of her narration, she is still able to give credibility to her male voices. Nonetheless, Ross's skill is not enough to save this audiobook. Eliza is not a likable heroine, a problem that makes it hard to empathize with her and want to follow down the path she chooses. Ross does an exemplary job with intonation as she tries to pull listeners into the turmoil of Eliza's decisions. But too much buildup and not enough story before the resolution do not satisfy. Great narration, a clever title, and a cute cover still can't overcome the novel. S.K.G. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine"
