Review: The Dating Experiment by Emma Hart (The Experiment #2)


Note: This ARC was provided by the author via InkSlinger PR in exchange for an honest review.

The Dating Experiment is the second novel in bestselling author Emma Hart's The Experiment series, which was a spin-off of her The Upside to Being Single romantic comedy book. While all three are touted as being standalones, the three couples from The Upside to Being Single, The Hook-Up Experiment, and The Dating Experiment do recur in each one, so I'm going to go ahead and recommend that you read them in order. They're all good reads, and they did make me laugh, so I'm okay with suggesting them to all you other readers.

After witnessing her two best friends find love with their significant others--Melanie Rogers and Peyton Austin with Jacob Creed and Elliott Sloane, respectively--Chloe Collins has decided it's time for her to let go of her years-long unrequited love for Dominic Austin. Easier said than done given that she and Dom co-own Stupid Cupid, an online matchmaking service, and he also happens to be Peyton's older brother. What better way to get over him than to have him match her with someone? So why does it kill her when he asks her to match him with someone too? And why is it that just when Chloe has decided to move on does Dom make a play for her?

There were some definite moments where I found myself snickering at the back and forth going on between Chloe and Dom; there were also some definite moments where I found myself wanting to smack these two for all the back and forth going on between them. Chloe and Dom's story was both funny and frustrating. To be honest, I couldn't completely wrap my head around why she was so hesitant to make a go of them as a couple when Dom finally confessed his own feelings for her. Yes, I kinda-sorta-maybe got where she was coming from, but come on, woman! This is what you were pining over for years! Jeez! Jump on that horse already and go ride off into the sunset already. At the end of the day, however, The Dating Experiment resulted in a four-star read. ♥
