Book Review: Twitterpated by Melanie Jacobson

TwitterpatedTitle: Twitterpated

Author: Melanie Jacobson

Publisher: Covenant Communications

Released: March 1, 2012



Jessie Taylor is furious when her roommate secretly posts her picture on the dating website LDS Lookup — furious, that is, until she spends all night instant messaging Ben Bratton, a man whose wit and warmth just might make Jessie forget the train wreck of her last romantic relationship. Their first date is a smashing success (literally), but Ben’s overall awesomeness can’t save Jessie from having to deal with Craig, her competitive coworker whose baiting behavior sets new standards for obnoxiousness. Determined to beat Craig at his own game, Jessie spends long office hours finishing projects and putting out fires, but while her performance wows her boss, it only makes Ben skittish — after a failed engagement to an up-and-coming lawyer, he’s not about to pair up with someone who’s married to her job. Will Jessie figure out how to be true to herself and take her big chance at love before it’s gone with a click of the mouse?




Melanie’s books have on my want to read list for a long time.  I finally read her book Smart Move at the end of 2012 and really enjoyed it so I bumped this one up on my to read list.  I had absolutely no idea there was some cross-over between the two books.  Twitterpated was written first and I was half way through this book before I realized Jessie’s roomate Sandy is Sandy from Smart Move… It was one of those oh duh! kind of moments.  That said you can obviously read these books out of order because I had no clue I was missing back-story when I read Smart Move.

This is LDS fiction which will automatically turn some people off but I suggest giving this book a try.  It’s a whole lot of fun!  Personally romantic comedies are on the top of my list of favorites and Twitterpated is no exception.  If you are looking for a clean, romantic, laugh-out-loud read then grab a copy of Twitterpated.

  1. I have this one and really liked it. I love her characters and humor. I haven’t read Smart Move yet, but it is on the top of my list for next LDS books I’ll buy. Not My Type is my favorite of hers.
