Synopsis: She has 30 days to turn her enemy into her boyfriend...
Introverted computer engineer Charlie Forrester has coded an algorithm for love, a nearly flawless matchmaking program. But then she's challenged to prove its accuracy - on herself. With her dream job on the line, Charlie has thirty days to forge a romantic relationship with her "perfect" match...her ex-friend and now-nemesis, Daniel Shawn. Since her dating experience is expressed in binary, she'll need more than flirting lessons and a wardrobe overhaul to pull it off.
After falling victim to the same online matchmaking con he was investigating, reporter Daniel Shawn's professional reputation went up in flames. Now he suspects someone has rebooted the scam, and he's determined to expose the fraud and rebuild his career. Unfortunately, his efforts to get back in the game get sidetracked by Charlie and her adorable geekitude, even though she seems to know a little too much about digital dating for Daniel's comfort.
And when fake romance crosses into real chemistry, Charlie's formula for love might just be the perfect formula for disaster...
This is the second book I have read since started college. So, going in, I had high hopes because I wanted to enjoy reading. Who doesn't want to enjoy reading? Well this did not hit the bar at all. The concept seemed really good but the execution was SOO bad. There is not a single redeeming quality to this book for me. I hated the characters, I hated the "romance", I hated the plot, I hated the portrayal of what a "geek" is like and how they supposedly behave and think. I hated how the entire situation came about because in no world is it legal for your boss to make you date someone. This book was just awful to me. I almost DNFed it but it was such a short book I finished I would finish it just to say I finished it. This book was such a waste of my time.
