Publisher's summary

A smart and delightful romantic comedy featuring fabulous female friendships and "a great love story" (Jasmine Guillory, best-selling author of Party of Two).

Samiah Brooks never thought she would be "that" girl. But a live tweet of a horrific date just revealed the painful truth: She's been catfished by a three-timing jerk of a boyfriend. Suddenly, Samiah - along with his two other "girlfriends", London and Taylor - have gone viral online. Now, the three new besties are making a pact to spend the next six months investing in themselves. No men and no dating. For once, Samiah is putting herself first, and that includes finally developing the app she's always dreamed of creating. Which is the exact moment she meets the deliciously sexy Daniel Collins at work. What are the chances? But is Daniel really boyfriend material, or is he maybe just a little too good to be true?

"A smart, funny digital-age romance about real women living in the real world. Couldn't put it down!" (Abby Jimenez, USA Today best-selling author of The Happy Ever After Playlist)

(Jasmine Guillory, New York Times best-selling author of The Wedding Date)

"Rochon is a romance master who adeptly writes interesting and dynamic characters.... A richly layered conflict adds depth and complexity to this charming workplace romance." (Kirkus)

"Rochon's new multicultural contemporary romance series deploys the delicious tensions generated by an office romance, corporate intrigue, and female empowerment." (Booklist)
