The dating experiment
I liked the twist that the author took on this unrequited love/best friends brother trope and was intrigued to read about their relationship, but then it just fell flat. I wasn’t invested or excited, a Based on the blurb, I was really excited for this book.
In the end though, this one sadly won’t be going on my favourites shelf. Chloe seemed like a fun woman with a good head on her shoulders, and Dom being the classically rugged hero that we all love seemed like they’d be a good match.
We study dating behavior using data from a Speed Dating experiment where we generate random matching of subjects and create random variation in the number of potential partners.
Our design allows us to directly observe individual decisions rather than just final matches.
Especially since he’s my best friend’s brother—thankfully, she’s okay with the fact I’m pulling a Sandy and I’m hopelessly devoted to him. what better way to do that than have Dominic set her up with the perfect guy.... I really thought Chloe was the sane one to balance out the trio.
Setting up a dating website with the guy I’ve been in love with since I was five wasn’t my smartest idea. I have come to realize that is what I look for in a romance.... Chloe decides she needs to get over Dominic, and go out with somebody else.... So as soon as this one came onto my radar, I jumped at the chance to read it. If I thought Mellie with her clumsiness and Peyton with her stubbornness were wonderful, then I need to be checked out.
I actually hated Peyton a bit because of what she didn't do! I was surprised at Dom's level of playfulness but I think I shouldn't have been. The way they surprised each other had me feeling warm and fuzzy inside. I expected hot and heavy but inspite of high sexual tension and one love scene, it was sweet and light. My one line review : A seriously sweet pining-for-each-other romance. I think the author tried to make heroine a strong heroine but the end result was unreasonable, stubborn, stupid, extremely defensive heroine. They are, not only, keeping that fact from one another, but they also work together, conducting the "dating website" Stupid Cupid and they act like they cant stand the sight of each other.
From the beginning, I was very much immersed in Chloe's life and it started right with the first few sentences, which I call the chapter-isms, making me laugh and launch right into the big mess Chloe had made of her life. The most prominent one was the amusement at the toddler level bickering between Chloe and Dom. Their fights really got me reminiscing about the cute skirmishes which take place in kindergarten between girls and boys. Just know that they go through some confusion before they come to their happily ever after! One question I have is, how the hell the feeling could be love? The story is guy and girl both own a dating business. To get over each other they decide to hook each other up with other people. Anyway so after first date guy figures out heroine is his end game. They are, not only, keeping that fact from one another, but they also work together, conducting the "dating website" Stupid Cupid and they act like they cant stand the sight of each other.
I literally imagined Chloe with 2 pigtails and Dom in shorts and him trying to get her attention and her protesting with feet stomping. I say love squabbles because it was evident even in the starting pages that they were crazy about each other. And I can say without any hesitation that the sweet romance, the love squabbles between the pair and the high sexual tension will have you reading their story at a fast pace without any break till you reach the end. And he had Adonis body and heroine was in love with him forever. They both being unaware of each other's feelings as they fight a lot and think they hate each other. So he asks her to stop find someone else for him and he loves her. In one of their disputes, they agree to fah well..started good...
And a big-ass mess…Chloe, Peyton, and Mel are all being added to my book BFF list...
Chloe is my new favourite among the three friends hands down! And he had Adonis body and heroine was in love with him forever. I liked it, the whole "friends/enemies to lovers" kinda thing with lots of bickering and banter, the main characters have with each other - Chloe Collins had a huge crush on her best friend's brother Dominic Austin, for years and so had he!

I don't know where I got that idea but I was seriously wrong!! This girl rocked me with her humour and her antics involving Dom.
