Women, if you are looking for a nail-biting book on the essence of online dating, you must read ConneXions: A Dating Site Where Lonely Women Have Become Prey by Thelma Mariano. Thelma Mariano takes you on a ride of murder and suspense as you look through the eyes of Kyle, a bartender. ConneXions is a fictional story that takes place in Montreal, Canada. ConneXions is one of the most popular sites for those with discretionary tastes. Ever since Lori left Kyle and their marriage of seven years, Kyle has been on a quest to make women pay for Lori’s leaving him. Kyle began to seek out women who were unfaithful to their husbands, just like Lori had been to him. Kyle believes that it is his earthly duty to rid the world of women like Lori. He also believes that this is his only way of getting back at Lori. Will his plan work? Will he slip up and be found out?
From the first page of reading, ConneXions: A Dating Site Where Lonely Women Have Become Prey had me. I looked at ConneXions as I would eHarmony, Christian Mingle or Match.com, which are a few of the many popular online dating sites taking over and replacing traditional dating. As I watched the lives of Jenny, a successful single woman that needs some spice in her life, and Stephanie, an unhappily married woman, unfold in ConneXions, I began to think about the old adage of “the grass is greener on the other side” that so many people believe, especially when hitting a bumpy road in their relationships. Both of these women feel like they have met the man of their dreams, someone that can help them to overcome their insecurities, feelings of being unloved, loneliness, and the hopelessness that they are experiencing. They crave the attention that Kyle gives them during their secret intimate indiscretions. Enter Dana, who is working on her thesis about women who are having affairs. She begins her quest by registering on ConneXions. While on ConneXions, things takes a turn. Will Stephanie, Jenny, and Dana all be a part of Kyle's plan or will one of the women be too much of a match for him?
