From the publisher:
Evie Rosen has had enough. She's tired of the partners at her law firm e-mailing her at all hours of the night. The thought of another online date makes her break out in a cold sweat. She's over the clever hashtags and the endless selfies. So when her career hits a surprising roadblock and her heart is crushed by Facebook, Evie decides it's time to put down her smartphone for good. (Beats stowing it in her underwear—she's done that too!)

And that's when she discovers a fresh start for real conversations, fewer distractions, and living in the moment, even if the moments are heartbreakingly difficult. Babies are born; marriages teeter; friendships are tested. Evie just may find love and a new direction when she least expects it, but she also learns that just because you unplug your phone doesn't mean you can unplug from life.

I was afraid that this would turn into a whine-athon of a book, where the main character woes and groans about their shitty plot in life and so forth, but I liked how Evie worked through the situations that she found herself in. Some of the secondary characters could have used a bit more development, like her crazy friends, but others seemed real--like Bette and Jack. Edward was a little too good to be true, but he made my heart pitter-pat for him.

A fun, light chick-lit rom-com. Just what I was in the mood for!
