First things first, although the story as-a-whole is original, the basic premise isn’t a completely original concept. But that doesn’t change the fact that this is a well-written, laugh-out-loud, charming debut. I really hope Zoe May releases another book, she has such a natural talent for both developing a chick-lit romance, and embedding humour within the narrative throughout! I loved Perfect Match.
This book follows Sophia, a character who seems quite snarky and, to be honest, narcissistic and materialistic, from the beginning. However, throughout the book, Sophia does mature and becomes a likeable character, who you are rooting for. This is interesting, because other characters who you feel are honest, humble and kind in the beginning, I found myself loathing half-way through the book. The characterisation was well-done, enough for the reader to feel a connection to the characters, and more-so to the romance happening between the characters. My favourites were Sandra, the quirky co-worker (I was rooting for a romance between her and Tom, to be honest) and Chris, the geeky date, who wasn’t appreciated for his amazing fact-file.
I don’t want to say too much more, as I want to keep this spoiler-free! But I would highly recommend this one if, like me, you love Sophia Kinsella like chick-lit, full of quips and cute romance. It’s a happy, charming read and one which I very much enjoyed.
