Brie picked the wrong guy—gave him the wrong finger.

When her fiance walks out three weeks before their wedding, she slowly picks up the pieces with the help of her friends. A serial monogamist, she's not quite ready to start dating again. There are some things she misses about having a boyfriend, though. Her friends convince her to try something more casual. Random hookups have never been her thing. When a guy she has flirted with for a while offers his services to solve her dilemma, she can't help but be intrigued. Now she's trying to keep things casual, but when she's wrapped in his arms, it's hard to remember she's not supposed to be falling for him.

Max has had a few hookups since he split with his girlfriend. Lately, though, he feels like something is missing. He has crushed on the girl he affectionately calls Cheese for years, but the timing was never right. When he finds out they're finally single at the same time, he is poised to make his move. Unfortunately, she's only looking for something physical. Of course, Max is happy to oblige, but the more time they spend together, the more certain he becomes that she's the perfect girl for him.

He pulls out all the stops, and just when he's about to make his move from the friends-with-benefits zone to serious dating, Brie completely ghosts on him. Now he has to figure out if she has really walked away, or if something more serious is keeping him from the girl of his dreams.

Funny, sexy, and satisfying, The Dating Alternative is a standalone new adult/contemporary romance.

The Dating Alternative is a New Adult/Romance book about Brie and Max who both agree to being friends with benefits. It seems like the perfect option, only Max has always had a thing for Brie, and Brie is trying hard not to fall for Max.

The Dating Alternative is definitely one of my favourite New Adult/Romance reads. The story is so fast paced and so easy to read. These days I love reading NA and Romance because those books are so relaxing to read and you can finish these books in 1 or 2 days.

The Dating Alternative was such a good book because it’s not just about love but also about discovering yourself after heartbreak, trying to find the right job, and family and friends are important to the main characters. I loved that The Dating Alternative is not just about the romance but also other important things in life.

 I really loved Brie and Max because they’re so perfect for each other. Max is so funny and flirty, and just one of my favourite book boyfriends. Brie is also a strong character because she’s been through a lot with her ex, and she still tries to accept Max.

I highly recommend The Dating Alternative if you’re looking for a good New Adult/Romance book and I cannot wait to read Jennifer Woodhull’s other books!
