“The Right Swipe is everything you want in a Summer read: fun, clever, and so, so sexy.” — Popsugar
Alisha Rai returns with a sizzling new novel, in which two rival dating app creators find themselves at odds in the boardroom but in sync in the bedroom.
Rhiannon Hunter may have revolutionized romance in the digital world, but in real life she only swipes right on her career—and the occasional hookup. The cynical dating app creator controls her love life with a few key rules: 
- Nude pics are by invitation only 
- If someone stands you up, block them with extreme prejudice 
- Protect your heart 
Only there aren't any rules to govern her attraction to her newest match, former pro-football player Samson Lima. The sexy and seemingly sweet hunk woos her one magical night... and disappears. 
Rhi thought she'd buried her hurt over Samson ghosting her, until he suddenly surfaces months later, still big, still beautiful—and in league with a business rival. He says he won't fumble their second chance, but she's wary. A temporary physical partnership is one thing, but a merger of hearts? Surely that’s too high a risk…

Why Did I Listen To The Right Swipe by Alisha Rai?

The Right Swipe by Alisha Rai has been sitting in my TBR cart since I obtained a TBR cart. I didn’t really feel pushed to read it — that is, until I got the third book in the series in the mail as well as via audio. Then I figured, what the heck, I have The Right Swipe on my shelf, I might as well listen to it as soon as possible. After all, the sooner I listened to it, the sooner I would feel good to go with listening to First Comes Like. Also? I am always down to check out a new to me contemporary romance series.

What’s The Story Here?

The Right Swipe is about Rhiannon Hunter who has pioneered a new dating app. She wants to buy out another dating app which has been a lot more established. So, Rhiannon is at this tech conference in Texas when who should be representing the company she wants to buy out but a previous hook up who ghosted her – Samson Lima. As it turns out, Samson is a former pro football player, not that Rhiannon knew that when she hooked up with him. He’s helping his aunt’s company by using the app to find love. When Rhiannon and Samson are thrown together again, they come to a truce over what had happened during their hookup and Rhiannon gives him dating tips. Only, as it turns out, they just might be falling for each other.

What Did I Think of The Right Swipe?

I straight up really enjoyed The Right Swipe. So much so that I made listening to First Comes Like a big priority after listening to the first of the Modern Love series. And now, I want to round it out and listening to book two – Girl Gone Viral. I completely understood why Rhiannon kept her heart so guarded, she’s been burned. And well, she wants to avoid being hurt again. I loved the side plot about CTE and Samson’s potential work for a foundation that addresses CTE. And well, the love scenes were quite decent as well.

How’s The Narration?

The audiobook of The Right Swipe is narrated by Brian Pallino for Samson’s chapters and Summer Morton for Rhiannon’s chapters. Both are new to me. I was able to listen to Summer Morton’s narration sped up because it was still easy to understand. I had to listen to Brian Pallino’s chapters at a slower speed because I just couldn’t process what he was saying at a faster speed. So, I did have to keep adjusting while listening. Still, overall, this was a great and easy to follow audiobook that left me in a great mood and eager for more from Alisha Rai. OH and it is 10 hours and 13 minutes long.
