Blurb: Clay McDonald finds the perfect car on Craigslist and is quick to send the seller a text:
Is your penis still for sale?
AutoCorrect strikes again. Damn—he should’ve proofread. How embarrassing.
Luckily Darrell Anderson, a mechanic and the owner of the Prius, is more amused than offended, and the two men agree to meet. When they do, the attraction is instant, and a date is arranged. But a series of mishaps, misunderstandings, and misplaced assumptions sorely test the new relationship.
In a contemporary romantic comedy about the perils of technology and dating in the modern world, a text that went so wrong might just lead to something so right—but only if Clay can refrain from jumping to conclusions and give love the benefit of the doubt..
Review: A fabulous story about what can happen when autocorrect strikes. Clay is shopping for a new car when he sees an ad on craigslist for a Prius. The resulting text is embarrassing to say the least but the owner, Darrell, takes it all in stride.
When they meet they realize they’ve seen each other around several times and are attracted to one another. But one misunderstanding threatens that along with some mishaps that deter a talk.
I liked the easy way these two were with one another. The mishaps were funny for the most part and Clay learns to talk about things instead of jumping to conclusions and running. Darrell and Clay were so good together.
