Mia’s best friend Robyn is famous for her precise matchmaking skills, so when Homecoming comes around, Mia wants to get matched with Vince, the hot jock and golden boy of the school, but Robyn refuses, so she takes things into her own hands. Vince asks her out, but Mia doesn’t expect another rival vying for her heart, one that Robyn is sure that she is perfect with, the newspaper photographer, Logan. Mia has two weeks to fix everything or bid her perfect match goodbye forever.
This book was so cute, funny and fast-paced. It was heartbreaking to read, full of dramatic and ‘oh shoot’ moments that were happening throughout the book.
I loved that we had a love triangle, yet at the same time, it was easy to see who Mia was going to end up with although she is in denial. I wasn’t a fan of Robyn’s methods to get Mia to realise things since they did feel a little underhanded. I also did feel that if all the characters didn’t rely so much on Robyn’s matchmaking skills, they all would have been better off.
I’m glad that Elena and Mia work things out and are trying to make up, but honestly, I did think that Elena was too dramatic and childish for Mia, I honestly would have preferred for them to be acquaintances instead.
Reading this book was like running around a fair looking for a cotton candy on a stick, and once you had finally found it and bit into it, the sweetness was all worth it.
This was definitely a fun, heartbreaking and dramatic story that I finished in one shot and would definitely recommend this to all fans of contemporary readers!
