Mel Strickland has a computer science degree but is stuck working at the help desk at Hatch, a start up company that helps young coding designers acquire funding to develop their computer project. Mel is smarter than most of the "Hatchlings" trying to code, but in a male dominated field, she finds she is getting no where.
After a few horrible dates using the app Fluttr, Mel decides to develop her own app....JerkAlert....which will work with Fluttr to warn other females of any guys on Fluttr that turn out to be jerks. Overnight her app goes viral.
Mel finally meets a decent guy, one of the Hatchlings, Alex Hernandez, and they are getting along great until she decides to look him up on JerkAlert. Let's just say that this is going to blow everything up in Mel's world. Just when she thinks life couldn't get any better, her entire world caves in. It will take a huge leap of faith for Mel to find her happy ending with Alex but it ends up being worth it in the end.
I really enjoyed Mel. Being a computer programmer I could relate to a lot of what she went through. It was nice seeing a female portrayed as a smart programmer. I also really liked Alex. He was just a sweet, honest guy and he was perfect for Mel!
