Publisher's Summary

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 fiancé.

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.

Silly, Quirky, Fun

The premise of this book was ridiculous, the story was unbelievable and the story was so fun. If you're looking for a realistic, down to earth story, then this probably isnt the one but if you want light, easy, giggly fun then this book is perfect. Rebekkah Ross is a wonderful narrator & I will continue to seek out books read by her. She brings every story she reads to life.

Tissue thin premise.

I am fine with a light, fun, soapy story, but this one didn't work at all. None of the characters' reactions to the fake engagement were plausible and the whole scenario was a non-problem. I don't want to reveal spoilers, but the idea that one can profoundly heart someone, and then draw the conclusion that the person isn't right for them because they won't then give everything they want is bordering on sociopathic, but is presented as some kind of feminist self-awareness. I almost stopped then, and probably should have.

Although this did not have the most realistic storyline, it was still fun to listen to.
