Here's the blurb: After too many failed relationships, too many shots of tequila, and too many not-so-gentle nudges from her best friend, Sydney Montrose joins an online dating site in hopes of finding THE ONE. During her adventures, she crosses paths with a professional gamer who lives with his parents, a sweet and sarcastic parking enforcement officer, a flirty barista, a mystery man, a touchy-feely former felon, and a clown. Which one will she choose? Well, that's all entirely up to you!
And here's an excerpt, continuing from where we left off:
“Are you not enjoying the…coffee?” Sam asked, his eyes subtly darting to her oblivious tablemate.
“It’s a bit, um…astringent for my taste.”
Sam nodded. “Well, let me see if I can—”
“Be right back,” Collin interrupted as he stood. “Grab me a coffee, man,” he said to Sam. “Black.”
Once Collin was a safe distance away, Syd grabbed Sam’s arm and spoke urgently, “He’s creepy and crowdy and touchy and feely, and did I mention the guy’s been to jail? ‘Cause he has! So now would be a really good time to put that black belt of yours to good use.”

I'm sad to say that my family experienced another tremendous loss this past week. My dear, sweet grandpa passed away on Wednesday morning, after 96 blissful years of life. We're all finding comfort in the fact that he died peacefully in his sleep, and, better still, he's with my mom (his daughter) in Heaven now. I've been at home with family, and we're all pulling together yet again to help each other through this difficult time. He was such a kind, generous, hard-working, and happy man who loved being alive, adored his family, and had a wonderful sense of humour. We'll miss him terribly, but he's having one heck of a reunion in the sky right now. Wishing all of you a fabulous week ahead. Hug your loved ones and enjoy every moment of this precious life.
