On the surface, Kai Alexander has it all - the perfect life - but her niggling subconscious is hellbent on the fact that her happily single status is in need of eradication. Instead of succumbing to the new age wave of sliding onto an app, she goes old school - placing a personal ad in her hometown newspaper, hoping to spark a love connection.
Bringing an additional lady into his life wasn't in Theodore “Rux” Reed‘s life plan, but you know what they say about the best laid plans... When the perfect woman is literally dropped at his doorstep, he was powerless to resist the desire to get to know her.
With less than one literal degree of separation between them, Kai and Rux’s paths collide and unfurl into a journey of evolution & self-realization.
I absolutely loved the premise of Someone Seeking Someone Else! We are going old school here. Kai is not having any luck using date apps or websites to find a good man, so she turns to the newspaper. Yes, the physical, printed, local newspaper. She puts in a personal ad and gets tons of responses, mostly from men who misinterpreted her message. But amongst the spam was a drawing of her from Rux, so she writes him back, and the two become old fashioned pen-pals!
Someone Seeking Someone Else was super cute at the beginning. I adored the letters that were included. It was just such a fun way for Kai and Rux to get to know each other before they jumped into a relationship. Things did get weird in the middle when the inevitable breakup happens, but it’s not even really a breakup because they hadn’t gotten together yet. Kai has some kind of meltdown that made no sense, led to Rux spilling every last detail of his dating history, Kai getting more upset, and then…I don’t even know. Of course, they get (back) together in the end which is all I can ask for. There’s also no sex. They have sex, but it’s of the fade to the next morning variety.
