Review: Missed Connections by Tamara Mataya

Missed Connection: I saw you standing there, and I was struck by your eyes. Gorgeous, but not as gorgeous as your smile.

What should have been a sizzling NYC summer has been hijacked by demanding bosses. To cope, I spend my nights cruising Missed Connections, dreaming of finding an uber-romantic entry all about me. Of course, the moment I finally find that Missed Connection, real life comes crashing down in a night of unbridled passion with totally off-limits Jack.Best. Hookup. Ever.Gorgeous and wealthy, hot as sin, Jack can give me everything I need-except an emotional connection. That I get from my Missed Connection, the romantic stranger who never fails to make me swoon. But there's only so much of me to go around. Torn between the bad boy I can't keep and the sensitive stranger who bares his soul online, my heart and body are caught in two very different relationships...or are they?

A new-to-me author with an intriguing cover.  I took a chance on this book, and I didn't like it as much as I thought I would.  While the dialogue seemed appropriate for Sarah's age, her behavior  -- and the fact that she stayed in a job where she was seemingly gaslit (I really wanted to find out what would happen there, but since she quit, a resolution was unnecessary) -- and Jack's deception really took me out of the story.  

(A very special thank you to Sourcebooks Casablanca and NetGalley for providing me with an ARC of Missed Connections.)
