Dating-ish, an all new standalone from the USA Today bestselling Knitting in the City romantic comedy series by Penny Reid is now LIVE!
'Dating-ish' can be read as a standalone, is a full length 100k word novel, and is book #6 in the Knitting in the City Series.
There are three things you need to know about Marie Harris: 1) She's fed up with online dating, 2) She's so fed up, she's willing to forego the annoyance and consider more creative alternatives, and 3) She knows how to knit.
After the most bizarre and irritating first date in the history of humankind, Marie is looking for an alternative to men. With the help of her friends, she quickly identifies a few possibilities:
Need a cuddle? Use a professional cuddler. Need affirmation? Get yourself a life coach. Need an orgasm? Try orgasm meditation! Why does she need the hassle of a romantic partner when she can meet all her needs with paid services?
But then her irritating date resurfaces. And he's not at all the person she thought he was. And he suggests a different--and crazier--solution to her dilemma . . .
As everyone knows (or will soon come to realize), traditional relations between humans are a thing of the past. Robots are our future. And if robots are our future, then why do we need other people at all?

This is a unique story in the Knitting in the City series, it is also the 6th book in Penny Reid’s smash series. I enjoyed reading Ms. Reid at her best. Reading the witty humor, the smart banter between the H/h.
Marie has been a victim of online dating in more than one occasion. She finally decides to give up online dating and ends up sharing with her friends the bad experiences that she has had during their knitting times which are always fabulous. When the guy from her last bad date happens to come by. He happens to be Greg and Fiona's neighbor, Matt.
Matt is into robots, he believes he can build machines that can replace human affections and when he sees Marie, he needs her help in order for his latest project to work. Marie doesn’t have an issue with that because she would love to pick his brain for her latest article, which is about dating. They end up agreeing to help each other and the sparks really start to fly. They are each unique in their own way and with them both looking at dating for what is needed ,we get a bird’s eye view of today’s modern dating and the solutions to today's solutions to human loneliness. I could relate to this story and what the author was striving to express and its unique storyline which really was awesome to see about how they met and then met again. There was some parts to the story that had me uneasy/angry but other parts that had me smiling and totally engrossed. I cannot lie, this story will have you riding a roller coaster of emotions- that’s all I can say without giving away spoilers. It can be read as a standalone but I would definitely recommend this story.
My Rating: 4.5 stars *****
