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 human kind, 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?

I've loved every single one of Penny Reid's books. They're full of humor and wit, her characters are realistic, and the romance is always warm and sweet. In DATING-ISH, Marie and Matt were amazing. Together and apart they were quirky, awkward, sweet, and just plain adorable.

I have to tell you that as much as I loved Marie... and I did because she was awesome... generous, giving, cares more about others than herself... it was Matt who stole the show for me. I don't know how he did it when this story was told from Marie's perspective, but his cool hit every mark. His brain turned me on just as much as it did her.

If you're looking for a book that is original, fun, optimistic and romantic, then I can't help but recommend this book for you. Not only do you get to see all of your favorite characters of the Knitting crew once again, but maybe you'll fall in love with Marie and Matt just like I did.
