Polly and Olly were never supposed to meet…
Polly might spend her days searching for eligible matches for her elite list of clients at her New York dating agency, but her own love life is starting to go up in smoke.
Even worse, she can’t stop thinking about the very person she’s meant to be setting her latest client up with… surely it can’t get any worse!
But then Polly bumps into oh-so-handsome Olly, who heads up a rival agency, and realizes that perhaps all really is fair in love and dating war…
The title is fun and put a smile on my face straight away. It was the first thing that attracted me to the booK.
The title is not the only humourous thing. The author has sprinkled the story with some funny bits but the main focus is on romance.
Everybody is keen on finding the ‘one’ and we have ticked boxes on a (mental) list with how we want our ideal partner to look, but looks are not everything! Maybe we should delve deeper and extend our list with things we want or don’t want our ideal partner to have or do. Not very romantic though, is it, but it might keep heartbreak at bay.
Anyway when you (finally) meet your better half it can be quite an eye opener and love can make you make a u-turn. No matter how many people might think you are not suited, the only thing that matters is how you feel about each other.
A fun read and remember there’s a lid for every pot. 4 stars.
