What People Are Saying:
‘This sharp and fascinating work explores the ever-growing phenomena of relationships that start online, and in learning who to trust and how such dynamics work (or don’t work) in the modern day … Author Jordan M Alexander pens her social commentary as a reality read, and I really loved the atmospheric inclusions of food, drink, music and visual stimuli which became as essential to the reading experience as the plot itself … Overall, an excellent and eye-opening work that fans of social issues, non-fiction, and romantic comedies can enjoy together.’
‘Jordan M Alexander is a master with words. She has sprinkled her knowledge of various diverse topics … from the scientific facts backing oysters as being aphrodisiacs to stereotypical sheep references … she has included all the right ingredients to keep readers hooked. And hooked, I was! I Love You, Send Money is a much-needed wake-up call for all eager-to-fall-in-love romantics who ignore red flags, even if those flags slap them across their faces. Alexis’ story is the funniest possible version of the truth about online dating…’
‘I Love You, Send Money by Jordan M. Alexander was a riveting read, full of emotion … funny, sad, romantic, and adventurous all in one. The writing style gives you the feeling that you are peering over someone’s shoulder, reading what they write, watching as they fight through the battles of each chapter. Although it is a real story, it was written to feel like a cosy novel … incredibly well-written, heartwarming and heartbreaking all at the same time … a fascinating read.’
‘Couldn’t put this book down, ended up reading it in two days ... Alexander has a cheeky sense of humor that had me laughing out loud, while also crying at predicaments she found herself in … when it ended I wanted to give her a giant fist-bump for standing tall, telling her story, inevitably teaching others important lessons.’
‘This story is gorgeous. The prose is gorgeous. The characters are gorgeous … Alexander makes online dating feel so real, infusing the story with relatable episodes and realistic scenes that bring it home to readers. I enjoyed the journey the characters take into each other's hearts. But the twist is so good that the effects will linger on after the last page is turned. The characters are written with solid backgrounds, the story is filled with humor, and the descriptive nature of the prose adds a deeper layer to the story's entertaining potential. Jordan M Alexander keeps it real.'
‘WOW! This was a great, fun and powerful read ... Jordan has an easy style and great use of humour and observation to keep you glued to see what happens next. HIGHLY recommended A+++. I look forward to reading the sequel.’
‘Jordan M Alexander is my hero. I Love You, Send Money is ridiculously on point when it comes to the dating experience, and the things that come out of Alexis' mouth and mind, and claw through the pages, are on another level. This is Bridget Jones if Bridget Jones were a real person. She's not—but Alexander is, and the mantra of “humor in adversity” that Alexis adheres to is the theme of this book. The creativity here is astounding and the writing is sublime. Yes, it’s a memoir, but it reads like fab fiction, even when it feels soul-crushing. “I’ve given you everything I have, James, my heart, my time, my love, my finances.” Alexis is in a complete nosedive, a victim with a real story to tell that needs to be read—particularly as it took some serious bravery to write.’
