Annie Chang is in her mid 20s and has lived in Los Angeles all her life. After a series of failed relationships, she's beginning to feel like she will never meet Mr. Right. But seeing one of her longtime BFFs find love on the internet, she decides to give online dating a try.
After finally finding an amazing guy who sweeps her off her feet, will he prove to be everything she could have wished for and more or is he too good to be true?
What a different and unique story! This story definitely is not like anything else that I have read recently! It gives you a fresh and pretty interesting look at the current dating scene!
I really enjoyed Annie’s interactions with those around her. Whether it was through email or text exchanges with different guys or her conversations with Alex, they were fun to read. Annie was a very lovable character right from the beginning. You could relate to her on a personal level when it comes to dating and you definitely felt for her. It was very interesting to watch her grow throughout the story.
“Love in All the Wrong Places” has some very fun, but also some very uncomfortable situations! Dating can be such a crazy experience and this book definitely captured that.
If you are looking for a fun & quirky new read, you will enjoy this one!
What made you need to tell this story?
I started using online dating services when I was about 16. I’ve had some interesting experiences – some of them great, some not so much, and some very memorable. Sometimes when I confided in my friends about these experiences, they would say things like, “Wow, you should write a book about this someday.” So while this book is fictional, some of the experiences are very real.
Which character in this story do you relate to the most?
Annie – because she definitely has a lot of pieces of me in her.
Which character would you like to meet in real life?
Uh, CASEY! Lol, I mean, any of the guys would be great – they’re all like uber-hot, but I might have to knee Gabe in the groin if I saw him, and Nate, too, for that matter. Nobody messes with my girl, Annie. ;)
What was your favorite chapter in the book?
I’d have to go with Chapter 6. It was the most fun to write because that was one of the most incredible experiences I’d ever had with an online date! The character himself is actually a mix of a few different guys I’ve met or spoken to online, but the experience itself really happened…I remember being on cloud nine for quite a while…
Who do you see playing your characters?
Well, let me show you. Check it out!
What are 3 items your main character will not leave home without?

What are 3 items YOU won't leave home without?
My cell phone, a compact mirror, breath mints
