Swipe right for love. Swipe left for disaster. By day, Mel Strickland is an underemployed helpdesk tech at a startup incubator, Hatch, where she helps entitled brogrammers--"Hatchlings"--who can't even fix their own laptops, but are apparently the next wave of startup geniuses. And by night, she goes on bad dates with misbehaving dudes she's matched with on the ubiquitous dating app, Fluttr.But after one dick pic too many, Mel has had it. Using her brilliant coding skills, she designs an app of her own, one that allows users to log harrassers and abusers in online dating space. It's called JerkAlert, and it goes viral overnight.Mel is suddenly in way over her head. Worse still, her almost-boyfriend, the dreamy Alex Hernandez--the only non-douchey guy at Hatch--has no idea she's the brains behind the app. Soon, Mel is faced with a terrible choice: one that could destroy her career, love life, and friendships, or change her life forever.Kristin Rockaway is a native New Yorker and recovering corporate software engineer. After working in the IT industry for far too many years, she finally traded the city for the surf and chased her dreams out to Southern California, where she spends her days happily writing stories instead of code. When she’s not working, she enjoys spending time with her husband and son, and planning her next big vacation.

This book is more than just a romance story. It’s about friendship, human interactions, trust, the sexism women deal with in the male dominant world, and the brutal of of online dating. Some part of the story was infuriating the insults that the main character endured and I have no doubt that it’s not even an exaggeration. Overall, it is a light and fun read.

What a "lovely" portrait of misogynistic Silicon Valley & an app by a scorned female programmer that created a urban legend.
Gee, I hope it not going to be picked up by cheesy W or Hallmark Channel given cautionary R-rated tale.
