Review: The Perfect Match
Can you ever find true love online?
Sophia Jones is an expert in all things online dating: the best sites, how to write a decent bio, which questions to ask and the right type of photos to use. The only thing she’s not so great at? Picking the guys…
After sitting through yet another dreadful date with a man who isn’t quite what she expected, Sophia is just about ready to give up on the whole dating scene. But her flatmate, Kate, persuades her to give it one more chance, only this time she must create a profile describing her ‘perfect’ man.
Yes, he must look like Robert Pattinson and needs to own a multi-million pound business, but there are a couple of other deal breakers, too! So, when a guy comes along who ticks every box, surely there’s got to be a catch?
A laugh-out-loud romantic comedy, perfect for fans of Catherine Bennetto and Rosie Blake!
Perfect Match? How about perfect voice? This book was a wonder of personality. Just the right amount of quirk with a heroine you couldn't help but root for. Since time is so short this week, I told myself I'd only skim the novel, but the heroine drew me in (as did my complete understanding of that 71st bad date and the certainty that dying alone is better than spending one more awful evening with Mr. Completely-Wrong). I pushed aside my to-do list and indulged in every last page.
The author writes deftly of a subject so many get wrong. Oh, it's not the deep stuff of literature, but she "gets it" - that late-twenties bit of life where you're supposed to be pairing up but some of us only end up paired with sweatpants and Top Chef. While everyone assures us that the perfect guy is coming, it's easy to despair that the right guy came and went on that one day we didn't check our Tinder account.
This book is a definite-read for every girl who's been single just a little too long. Because Zoe "gets it" - the book avoids all those horrid cliches from Bridget Jones to What Not to Wear. There's no good reason Sophia is alone; she just has to wait for that one perfect match.
