Publisher's Note:  

Twenty-three-year-old Pepper Spicer is not living the dream. She ended her engagement at the last minute because her fiance,a musician and soon-to-be reality TV star, wanted her to sacrifice her own career ambitions for his. Now she's stuck at home sharing a room with her little sister, trying to pay off massive debt for a wedding that didn t happen, and spending Friday nights Facebook-stalking everyone who has a better life. Her therapist father urges her to choose her career dreams and count her blessings by writing weekly thank-you notes, but gratitude is a tall order when she botches an important job interview and has to settle for writing an undercover dating web-zine column the last thing in the world she wants to do. Still, as Pepper (byline: Indie Girl) chronicles her bizarre and hilarious blind dates, she gives her father's challenge a try and slowly finds herself leaving self-pity behind. Life takes a major upswing as Pepper's column hits the big time and she tastes the exhilarating thrill of success. But there's one tiny problem: the intensely hot man she's falling for is having issues with her job (again). Will Pepper trade her personal ambition for another chance at love?

Overall Review:  

Not My Type is a quirky LDS romance with spunk. If Pepper is going down it may as well be with style. She miserably fails her first job interview, but life gets a little spicier as Pepper tries to discover her feelings for the very man who deemed her un-employable. 

Not My Type has down to earth characters and dialogue that portray the attitudes behind each one. In comparison with Jacobson's other books, Not My Type has a little more of a teenage feel, but can still be enjoyed by adults of all ages. It is a book about second chances, forgiveness, and determination with a little bit of Melanie Jacobson flair.
