However, the more I got to know Sophia, the more I realized how likable she is and that she really does have a good heart and relatable dreams. There are different red flags that arise for Sophia with the rich boyfriend, which made me feel like I was waiting for the other shoe to drop. I wanted to say, “Molly, you in danger girl.” But I wasn’t sure how deep my concerns should be, so I patiently followed along and braced myself.
If you’re a fan of rom-coms, you’ll most likely see how this story is going to go early on in the book. Without giving anything away, I’ll say that it’s a well-rounded take on a familiar tale. There are enjoyable supporting characters and a full representation of who Sophia is and the importance of her journey. The most important love story told here, though, is the love Sophia finds for herself as she discovers who she really is and what makes her tick. As a side note, as an American, I like reading books set in England because I like seeing the different colloquialisms.
For those who weigh in these factors, there is plenty of colorful language (though I feel like it mellows out as the novel progresses), but no graphic sex.
After another failed attempt with a man whose idea of a good date is sharing large amounts of random facts, Sophia decides she'll try one more website. This time she doesn't put anything serious on her profile and just asks for her dream man, a millionaire looking like Robin Pattinson. Nobody is more surprised than Sophia when she gets a serious reply, but is this man really as perfect as she thought he would be? Will this dating experience become another funny memory to entertain her friends with in the future or is there a chance Sophia has actually met the love of her life?
Perfect Match is a wonderful funny story. Sophia is looking for the right man, but it isn't easy to find one. She has her standards and the men she dates don't even come close, but she never gives up. I loved that the large number of failed dates don't discourage her and that she's still convinced love is out there for her somewhere. I liked her active and positive approach of everything she comes across in her life. Sophia is a smart woman with great friends, but something is missing and she hopes she'll find it some day. She truly cares about people and Sophia's friends are people she genuinely likes, it doesn't matter where they're from, how old they are or how much money they make. That's an admirable character trait and I loved how Zoe May combines this down to earth attitude with the extravagance of wealthy London. I couldn't wait to find out how Sophia would respond to that big change and couldn't turn the pages quickly enough to see if she'd get her happily ever after.
Zoe May has a great witty writing style that's very easy to read and I flew through the pages of Perfect Match, I just couldn't put it down. She effortlessly describes uncomfortable situations and the result is quirky, cute and amusing. Love is full of surprises and Zoe May knows exactly how to present them, which is one of the key reasons why Perfect Match is such a great story. She skillfully uses the precise right reactions to her advantage and the result is a creative and crazy story that made me laugh many times. Perfect Match is entertaining, charming and romantic. I really enjoyed reading this amazing feelgood book.
Sophia has become an expert at online dating yet she can’t seem to find the right guy. In fact, she seems to find all the wrong guys. One night she and her friend, Kate, come up with a dating profile on a new site, Dream Dates, just for fun and some alcohol was involved. You can only imagine...just know it involves a lot of laughs. When she gets a message from a guy who seems to be everything she was dreaming of, she isn’t quite sure if he is the real thing. Thus, begins Sophia’s journey to find her “perfect” man, but she will also go on a journey to discover who she really is.
This was a very different romance for me in that the writer, May, kept me guessing. That really isn’t something I see much in the genre...I loved it! She gave me some twists and turns. I always like when a book also has a deeper story as well. Sophia has a deeper story to tell us. She has a perception about how things should be, and she learns things aren’t always what they appear to be. She learns some really important life lessons, and she does it with such a sense of humor. I know you will come to love her as much as I did!!!!
I know I’m leaving her possible love interests out of this review, but they are a huge part of the story. I don’t want to ruin a thing because that part of the story is what made this such a great book!!!!
I love when a book surprises me, and this one certainly did that!!!! You can’t go wrong with this romantic comedy!!!! It’s one of my favorites of 2019!!!

When then follows is a light-hearted romantic comedy which looks at all the quirky aspects of internet dating whilst at the same time being an entertaining and fun read. I enjoyed getting to know Sophia, although there were times when she exasperated me, but the author does a great job of creating a very modern day scenario with a feisty and realistic heroine. The author writes well and has created a set of likeable and believable characters who drive the story forward and I particularly enjoyed that I didn't always know what was going to happen next for Sophia, and her friends.
A Perfect Match is a delightful rom-com which is just the pick up needed for a dark and dreary afternoon.
Zoe May writes a heart-warming romantic comedy, but interstingly, the premisse could have been written with a sinister twist, warning of the dangers of online dating. Don't expect anything like that here, this is what it sets out to be - fun. But, Zoe's skill as a writer keeps you on the edge, guessing what Daniel's secret will be. And the ending leaves an message about what's really important in life.
Sophia’s story was just the tonic I needed this week. It was belly laughs and snort-giggles galore! Along with the odd cringe-worthy scene (I’ll never look at finger dipping bowl the same again *smirks*) thrown in and sprinkled generously with emotion. I mean, let’s be real here for a second, in this day and age, who doesn’t have their own ‘perils of internet dating’ story?
Stop looking at me like that *blushes*. That is a story for another time *clears throat*.
As one can attest, Unrealistic Expectation-itis does indeed exist, and Sophia is a fellow sufferer. Why settle when you want it all, aka Mr Perfect? Am I right, ladies? Hence why I’m still single with three cats *snorts* Side note: I’m sure Sandra and I would be total BFFs (just think of all the Betsy and Nigel talk we could have!).
Here’s the thing though, all that glitters ain’t gold. (Did you sing that last part? Coz I totally did.) Can Soph’s RPatz lookalike-y really be everything she wants and more? (Full disclosure: I’ve never got the RPatz thing *cringes*.)
As I am want to do, I had a few conversations with Sophia along the way in the story. I don’t know why I bother, really. No one ever listens, lol!
Perfect Match isn’t just a story about hoping to find The One. It’s a story about finding yourself as well. Before we can give our heart to someone else, we need to love ourselves first, foibles and all. As the ad says, love your imperfections.
Sheesh, that’s getting a bit deep – eh?
Trust me, Perfect Match is the perfect read to beat the January blues!
Sophia was such a refreshing character to read about and I found so much of myself in her. It honestly felt like I was reading about my own life, just a few years later. Sure she has high expectations and doesn’t know what’s right in front of her, but so do plenty of other women pursuing the dating world. She aimed high with a rich man, got said rich man, lived in a glamorous world and still chose the life she had before than heaps and heaps of money. She’s an admirable character who had a little fun and also learnt a lesson from it too. Her story goes from being a woman with high expectations to a woman who appreciates what she already has and I’ve learnt a lot from this character that I will take along with me through my own journey of dating. Lesson number one of course, not being so picky.
Daniel is gorgeous and I genuinely could not work out if he was a wrong un or misunderstood and an absolute dream man. Loved the last few chapters where I found out! Definitely not my last Zoe May title.
