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:
Anymore? Did they ever? A chill ran down her spine as she contemplated what exactly this guy got thrown into the slammer for. Well, maybe it wasn’t a serious crime. It could have been something as harmless as tax evasion…or public indecency. She cocked her head, inspecting his outward appearance. He was fully-clothed, and nothing was unexpectedly poking out, thank the Lord.
“Like what you see?” he asked, shooting her a wink.
Her gaze shifted to the counter where she desperately sought out Sam. Where the hell are you, barista boy?

The last couple weeks have been tough for me. Seeing all the Mother's Day commercials on TV and cards in the stores has made me miss my mommy more than ever. I found myself stopping to read a few cards today, just so I could hypothetically choose the one I would have purchased for her. Inevitably, the waterworks came. When I left the store, it was nearing dinner time so I stopped at my favorite wing place to get a take-out order. The girl working there must have noticed my eyes looked a bit bloodshot. She couldn't have been sweeter to me, and when my order was packed and ready to go, she said, "Take care of yourself." Although some days are more difficult than others, it's the little things like this that go a long way. You can always depend on the kindness of strangers. :) And on that note, enjoy your week ahead, my friends!
