This was an extremely contemporary book which brought in some of the fun of social media. Parts of it reminded me of that hilarious hashtag skit on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon where Jimmy and Justin Timberlake go back and forth talking in hashtags. In this book, the heroine of the story is named Conchita and she works part time at a Candy store, but her brother in law Harvey gets her a second job working at a sex toy company named Boink that is behind on the rent in a building he owns.

He thinks Conchita can help their business by being the social media director. She takes to the job immediately, posting all over various sites with pictures of their products and funny hashtags. However after only a few days she hears from the company’s owner that the man that backed them with the funding, Mr. Griffin, is closing things down. Conchita pictures a stuffy old dude, so she starts to hassle him by tagging him in all her posts and calling him names like #CrustyBalls.

Conchita and Mr. Griffin end up in bit of a social media war. Little does Conchita know, that Mr. Griffin is the same guy she met as Christopher at her candy store job and she has been flirting with him and is planning to go out with him when they can align their schedules.

The book has some really funny parts and when Christopher and Conchita discover that they have been having an online war with each other, the story really starts moving forward. I genuinely liked Conchita, she has this inner voice she calls “Snarky Brat” and it is Snarky Brat who thinking all of these hilarious hashtags and funny nicknames even when she doesn’t happen to be posting online. She calls Christopher the Earl of Studlandia because he is British and she has a ton of names for herself.

The romance between the two main characters is super hot. Snarky Brat comes up with plenty of awesome hashtags to prove it. Conchita gets a pug puppy from Christopher and names it Mr. Barney Snuggles or Mr. Snuggles for short, because that is the kind of person she is. I have wanted a pug puppy for quite a while, so I was extremely jealous of her (yes I do know it is crazy to be jealous of a fictional character), but everybody goes a little mad sometimes, right?

Thanks to Netgalley and French Kiss Press for providing me with an arc in exchange for an honest review.
