BLOG TOUR: The Code for Love and Heartbreak by Jillian Cantor


I'm really excited to be a part of the Blog Tour for The Code for Love and Heartbreak by Jillian Cantor. I received a copy for honest review from the publisher through Netgalley. Thanks so much to Inkyard Press and Jillian Cantor for letting me be a part of this fun tour.


Title: The Code for Love and Heartbreak
Author: Jillian Cantor
Published by: Inkyard Press
Released: October 6, 2020

Synopsis:  From bestselling author Jillian Cantor comes a smart, edgy update of Jane Austen's beloved classic Emma. 
Emma Woodhouse is a genius at math, but clueless about people. After all, people are unreliable. They let you down—just like Emma's sister, Izzy, did this year, when she moved to California for college. But numbers...those you can count on. (No pun intended.)
Emma's senior year is going to be all about numbers, and seeing how far they can take her. When she and George, her Coding Club co-president, are tasked with brainstorming a new project, The Code for Love is born—a matchmaking app that goes far beyond swiping, using algorithms to calculate compatibility. George disapproves of Emma's idea, accusing her of meddling in people's lives. But all the happy new couples at school are proof that the app works. At least at first.Emma's code is flawless. So why is it that perfectly matched couples start breaking up, the wrong people keep falling for each other and her own feelings defy any algorithm? Emma thought math could solve everything. But there's nothing more complex—or unpredictable—than love. (Synosis from Goodreads)
My Thoughts:  This was very cute and I enjoyed it a lot. Emma finds comfort in numbers, math, and absolutes. She believes the hurdle of relationships and love can be conquered with the right mathematical formula. Thus The Code for Love is created. I really enjoyed this story of Emma believing one thing, but coming to discover another. Her journey to understanding was really fun to read. This was fun and I liked it a lot.
Emma's sister was definitely hurtful with what she told Emma before leaving for college. No one wants to be put down and mocked like that, but sometimes sisters have that ability to hit you where it hurts the most. Emma doubles down on that remark and is out to prove that math can solve it all.
I enjoyed the back and forth between Emma and George, how he didn't agree with her grand plan, but helps her anyway. I enjoyed all the couples getting together and then watching everything implode. It was fun seeing Emma's grand plan kind of go up in flames. She had to discover what love and relationships are really about.
This was the perfect book to just read and enjoy. It was fun, cute, and sweet. I really enjoyed the way Jillain Cantor told this story and I'm definitely going to check out more books by her. I'd definitely recommend it if you're looking for something cute.
