Praise for Unorthodox Love:
“Shertok’s debut delivers both sparkling banter and realistic relationship hurdles . . . Lovingly rendered . . . This tale of interfaith love is sure to please.”
Publishers Weekly

“[A] feel-good love story.”
Kirkus Reviews

“Shertok deftly informs readers about Penina’s faith as part of the plot in this chaste, opposites-attract romantic comedy.”
Library Journal

Unorthodox Love is a page-turning romance with delightful characters, hilarious banter, and finding love in the most unorthodox ways.”
—Abby Jimenez, New York Times bestselling author of Yours Truly

“Subversive, hilarious, and heartfelt . . . Unorthodox Love reminds us all that the things which set us apart, make us the worthiest of being loved.” 
—Jean Meltzer, international bestselling author of The Matzah Ball

“Unorthodox Love is everything I love in a good rom-com: sizzling chemistry, electric banter, and scenes that made me laugh out loud. Heidi Shertok’s heartwarming enemies-to-lovers romance will keep you turning pages right to the perfect end.”
—Cara Lockwood, USA Today bestselling author of I Do (But I Don’t)

“Penina had my whole entire heart. Winsome, hilarious, and impossible not to root for. I loved following this Ortho Jewish QUEEN to find her one-and-only.”
—Goldy Moldavsky, New York Times bestselling author of The Mary Shelley Club

“Delightfully Jewish, laugh-out-loud funny, and full of snappy dialogue, Unorthodox Love was an absolute joy from beginning to end! Penina is a character to root for—endearing, kind, and worthy of the happily-ever-after she ultimately gets. Sam is as delicious as he is grumpy and the two of them together are simply magic. I devoured this book!” 
—Meredith Schorr, author of As Seen on TV and Someone Just Like You.

“Romcom fans will lose their minds over Unorthodox Love, a hilarious debut from author Heidi Shertok, whose quirky and lovable characters are remarkably relatable, even for readers who might not know a mitsvah from a matzoh ball. I fell in love with Penina and Sam as they stumbled and tumbled (in Penina’s case, while wearing seriously great shoes) to their happily ever after. And believe me, there’s no burn like the slow burn of two people who aren’t allowed to touch each other . . . whew! It was an absolutely perfect ending except for the part where it, you know, ended. I can hardly wait for the next book by Heidi Shertok!” 
 —Carly Bloom, author of Big Bad Cowboy

“I adored Penina, her story and the journey she takes through the pages of Unorthodox Love. Heidi Shertok has penned a beautiful tale of learning how to reach for exactly what you want, even if it sometimes seems impossible. Even as you’re falling in love.”
—Stacey Agdern, author of B’Nai Mitzvah Mistake
