The second book in the Modern Love series, Girl Gone Viral, is an adorable, slow-burner romance with sweet protagonists and a whole list of interesting, funny, and relatable sidekicks. Katrina and Jas, our budding lovers, have extensive background stories that really help the reader understand their actions and believes and guides the plotline along nicely. Alisha Rai keeps you engaged by revealing tidbits of their past throughout the book, exactly what would happen in real life during dating. Going back and forth between Katrina’s and Jas’ inner monologue worked well in this novel and I wish there would’ve been even more of Jas’ side. Their developing relationship was cute and felt real. This would’ve been a really solid 4 star read for me but I docked half a point because I got annoyed a bit at the more steamy scenes as both protagonists’ innocence seemed less believable.
If you’re looking for a nice little romcom set in current times faced with current challenges, pick up this book. And don’t worry about having read the first book in the series. I hadn’t and I enjoyed book #2 nonetheless. Though I have to admit I’m now curious to pick up the first book as I enjoyed Rhiannon and Samson’s relationship in this novel.
I would like to thank NetGalley, the publisher, and the author for my advanced copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review.
