I’ve just finished another contemporary book called Perfect Match by Zoe May, and I enjoyed it.
The story follows Sophia, who lives with her best friend Kate. At the beginning of the book, Kate sets Sophia up on a dating website with a fake profile, because she can’t seem to find a date who’s worth it. Sophia has had 71 dates, all of which haven’t worked out for one reason or another. She gets a lot of responses to the fake profile but one sticks out, among the rest. The response is from a guy called Daniel. Sophia thinks she’s found her “perfect match” but has she? You’ll have to read to find out!
I would say it’s more for over 18 year olds as there are a couple of sex scenes and some bad language involved.
I’m not including a spoiler section (apart from the brief summary, I’ve given above) because at the beginning of the arc it says that I’m not allowed to reproduce, transmit or store any information from it.
What did I like about “Perfect Match”?
I liked the characters. Sophia seemed very human, as did Daniel.
I liked how the novel is a standalone - I know, shocker! It just seemed to wrap up nicely, 🙂.
What didn’t I like about “Perfect Match”?
I didn’t think “Perfect Match” was “a laugh out loud, romantic comedy” as it claimed to be at the start. I don’t think I laughed, once. It was entertaining but not funny.
The novel dragged in a few places. I thought some of the scenes could have been made a lot shorter.
I thought it was kind of predictable what happens at the end.
Overall, I didn’t hate “Perfect Match” but I didn’t love it either. It was a light hearted story that I found entertaining, rather than groundbreaking. That’s why I’m giving it a 3 star rating!
Does “Perfect Match” sound like something you’d like to read?
