Inspired by the #MyTinderSeries blog serial: the way to a woman’s heart is through her online dating profile.

A Dirty Romantic Comedy

Curvy, socially-awkward, and almost forty, Fortune lives her life on her terms. Well, except for her love life: non-existent aside from stalking her crush at the local grocery store, and one in which her BFF Louis describes her as being “painfully single.” Louis’ annual charity gala is three months away, and he suggests Fortune go online to find a date. Fortune resists, but after a bad night out she takes Louis seriously, goes online, and finds…her crush Graham in a group photo on a profile for username JR4019. And matches with him.

JR4019 is not Graham. Instead he’s Jason–witty, flirty, and “oozes gorgeousness.” Fortune can’t stop falling him, and he seems to like her, too. So much so that she agrees not to pursue her crush. But when Jason practically begs his way out of the gala, she has to find an alternative. Should she ask Graham to be her escort and possibly end things with Jason? Or should she stay with Jason for a chance to end her painfully single love life?

Between spicy ramen, arcade games, and bar fights, online dating has never been this complicated. Or this fun.

Book Description

Victoria Caldwell is a thirty-something single woman with a growing waistline, an unfulfilling job, and nothing waiting for her at home, save a stack of notebooks filled with unpublished writing. When she receives an email from her ex-boyfriend congratulating her on a book she hadn’t written, Victoria realizes just how far she is from living the life she wanted.

Motivated by her ex’s email, she resolves to achieve her long-wished-for “Happiness Trifecta”: love, a slimmer body, and a writing career. Then she runs into Michael–literally. He could be a key missing piece to her dream-life. But Michael’s got his own issues, and he has a knack for distracting her from her other goals.

Victoria’s journey takes her through crazy work schedules, fun outings, and a daunting first-time gym visit, but she doesn’t traverse it alone. Living Between Dreams is not just about the life journeys we take to realize our dreams, but those we take along for the ride.
