Swiped is everything you've come to expect from DJ Jamison's writing: characters that leap off the page, romance that is the perfect blend of sweet and hot, and laugh out loud moments. I've always been a reluctant Daddy kink reader, but Trace and Cooper swept me away ... -- Brigham Vaughn, author of Cabin Fever and Date in a Pinch
I was completely invested from the first page. The author was able to keep my attention peaked and pulling for this couple for the entire read. This author is quickly rising to my favorites list for m/m. --Wicked Reads Review Team
...unashamedly sweet and sexy. -- Archeolibrarian

This was lovely. The plot is really simplistic but there is so much attention to detail here that makes the story feel complete and authentic. It's not a mindless rom-com nor is it an angsty rollercoaster but when it's funny I genuinely laughed, and when the emotional moment hit, oh dear God do they hit. (Cooper's confrontation with his father, yeah I felt that).
Alao, this is a book with a character who is in college and has to study and go to class and talk with professors. This is a book where professors act like people and not heartless androids. This is a book where all the side characters feel completely flushed out, no one is a cardboard cutout just taking up space. Cooper's relationship with his family feels authentic. His parents aren't villains and his struggles with them are understandable. Trace feels tangible and doesn't act like a tumblr dom (thank god!). And their relationship is just so sweet and healthy. This is what I want from my contemporaries. Not made up drama that leads to a stupid misunderstanding between the characters. But real tangible and understandable struggles that happened because... Well, life.
I feel like I'm saying real a little too much here because at the end of the day this is still a dad's best friend trope where characters meet on an app but honestly that's the most fantastical element here and even that gets addressed. A lot of time was spent making this authentic. For example, Cooper is so d@mn relatable, I high key felt called out. The smut was just so good. It was emotional and felt more like a connection between two people than just hotness on a page. Don't get me wrong, it was still hot but you get my point.
I really love this. Granted, it wasn't perfect. The epilogue was a little too sappy for me but certain things need to be wrapped up so I'm not too mad about it. Then again, there is a second book coming out (that I already pre-ordered) so did there really need to be an epilogue? Two kinds of people, one would say no. I also didn't love how we didn't get to see Cooper's conversation with his mom. And more than once, there were scenes that happened in the past that could have happened in real-time. Like instead of Trace looking back on his conversation with Matthew, I would have preferred to see it happen. I think it would have been stronger that way. When things like this happened, it didn't take me out of the story nor did it take away from my reading experience. But it was a choice that confused me.
All in all, this is a great book. If you love character-driven love stories, you'll adore this. I know I did. Five stars because it was just so effortless. Also there was a daddy kink and that's low key high key my thing. Plus Trace was hot so you know.
But love can grow where it shouldn't and with someone who you shouldn't. Love is always surprising, but never dull. Especially if you are a perfect match for each other. Your love conquers everything else. But family is still important and need to be considered in decision making.
Love is a big commitment. Bigger than almost anything else in life. But you need to care for your previous commitments and work your way through. The rewards may not be as powerful as love, but they are still very important.
Motivation to complete classes with good grades is essential to success as it carries over to almost everything. Success in love for the long term is difficult as people change with age and experience. But love can keep you together in spite of all the problems in life.
Life. Live. Love. Change just one letter at a time and the whole world changes. Learn to love. Care. Share. Be Aware.

Cooper and Trace make a cute couple, there's relatively little angst and the kink is lightly done without feeling forced.
