Girl Gone Viral is the 2nd book in the Modern Love series. I had not read the first one and it did take me a bit to get into reading this one and I am not sure if it is because I was missing some backstory or not, but once things started to take off, I was hooked. Katrina is an investor that likes to keep things private and stay to herself. When she finds herself politely sharing a table with a guy at a coffee shop, another patron tweets the whole thing as if it is a first date and they just met their soulmate, causing the encounter to go viral. Will the public figure out that it is Katrina? She skirts off for a secret getaway with her bodyguard – the one who knows everything about her and is there to protect her. She is a client. But is that all she is? Katrina is determined to get to know Jas more and get him to talk about his feelings… but was going to his family’s farm to escape really the right thing to do?
I enjoyed this book – lots of sub plots throughout it that kept things interesting and I also liked how it revolved around Katrina’s panic attacks and how she is trying to escape them but didn’t ignore the importance of mental health and several characters mentioned coping mechanisms and how therapy isn’t a bad thing and it could be helpful to put your thoughts and feelings out there.
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review, I was not otherwise compensated.
