    Mel Strickland is one of my favorite protagonists. She's smart, she's funny, and she doesn't take sh*t from anyone ... even if that means becoming a meme. I couldn't cheer loud enough as Mel ferociously and creatively fought back against the bro-dominated tech world and all the jerks o...

    Well, I had to read this one because the heroine works help desk! I don't do much of that anymore, but I did for yeeaaars. Fortunately, my experiences were not like hers! Since I work at the library, most of my customers are women. Not that women can't be misogynistic, but it does make...

    This novel requires a longer than usual review-copy disclaimer. Back when I used to work in book publishing, the bane of my life was being asked to read the work of friends or worse, friends and relatives of friends. Some of them had an absurdly inflated sense of my influence; other...

    LOVED it. It?s laugh out loud funny for sure. But underneath its incredible charm is a timely message that will resonate. Will no doubt be the beach read of Summer 2019! ...

    I know it's only January, but without a doubt, How to Hack a Heartbreak WILL be making my top books of 2019 list! I absolutely loved this story from start to finish. Mel Strickland is fed up with being a tech professional in a male driven industry, but even more than that, she's sick o...

    Thanks, I hate it. How to Hack a Heartbreak is about a woman named Melanie who works as a helpdesk tech at a startup incubator. Mel fixes their laptops while dealing with their verbal abuse and goes on crappy online dates via an app called Fluttr. Tired of getting ghosted or unsolic...

    I received a digital ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. After Mel is stood up by a date and then sent dick pics by another guy, she creates JerkAlert. It gives women the opportunity to warn other dating app users which guys are the bad ones so they can be avoided. It...

    3.5 stars I hadn?t heard about this book until it was pitched to me and I was intrigued at the synopsis. I liked Melanie. She?s smart and loyal and has a great set of friends. I loved seeing a woman coding and the strong female relationships were fantastic. Mel?s friends ...

    Online dating has become a minefield. And making it the plot of a romance novel isn?t exactly new but it?s always entertaining. The trouble with online dating is REAL. Personally I love this kind of trope. The horrible and very real dating mishaps, the time for ghosting and look...

    5 Stars! Never trust anything you read on the internet. I loved this book SO MUCH! Maybe it's because I am a female in tech and this book highlights all the struggles that we consistently go through in a male dominated field. If you read this book and cringed at how Mel was tre...

    4.5 Stars / 2 Steam Fans This was a super cute and fun story. It was a little off putting or man hating in some parts but I found it to be very relatable in the career field that Mel worked in. Mel is wronged a few times when using a dating app so she decides during a drunken rage ...

    How to Hack a Heartbreak is SO FUN. I really loved reading this one and highly recommend it! Swipe right for love. Swipe left for disaster. Mel Strickland runs the helpdesk of a tech startup and has been feeling pretty uninspired that she isn?t coding the next big thing, ...

    Once again I find myself smiling wide through another fun rom-com! This genre is quickly becoming one of my favorites! They rarely disappoint, I?m always entertained, and they leave me feeling satiated at the end. What more could you ask from a book?! Like many of today?s women...

    "Never trust anything you read on the internet. And never trust the internet with your heart. If you?re looking for love, stop swiping. Instead, look up. Look around. The love of your life could be working in your office, or sitting next to you in a bar, or standing right beside yo...

    I am absolutely loving the resurgence of the rom com, I?ve been loving them SO much lately and I am super impressed with how amazing this new batch of romance books has been in the last few months. From start to finish I adored this one, it was fun, light and totally modern and it al...

    DNF @ 20% While I enjoy the concept of this novel, it just didn't capture my attention. The main character is quite whiny, and I would have preferred to read about a woman with more of a kick-ass attitude. I am sure that this will be enjoyable for others. Not my cup of tea, unfortun...

    What I loved most about HOW TO HACK A HEARTBREAK was Melanie. Our lead character is doggedly using the author?s version of Tinder, Fluttr, to try and find a connection. An enduring one. Not just for the night, though she?s willing to compromise, at least, on The One. She?d be fin...

    26-year old, Melanie (Mel), has been working the same IT job for the last 4-years. Although she is a software developer, she hasn?t climbed up the career ladder since graduating college. Working in a male-dominated environment, Mel feels she?s never taken seriously. Mel?s care...

    Please note that I received this via NetGalley. This did not affect my rating or review. Well this was downright delightful. I really got a kick out of Rockway's book and the characters she introduced in this one. Besides the main character of Mel, she has some really awesome best f...

    I REALLY wanted to love this book. I really did. I am a woman in IT. I like to code. I love the idea of this book. This book missed the mark for me. The whole book comes across as too preachy. I am 100% a feminist and a girl trying to make a start in the tech industry, but this book be...

    I find it really weird that the author has written a book about how brilliant a job in "coding" is, all about a woman who "doesn't fit in"-to the career choice, but the author themselves was a "coder" who quit that line of work to start writing? Weird. The characters in this were a...
