Ever thought about recycling your ex?
Best friends Catherine, Rachel & Sarah are fun, smart, successful and single – just like millions of women with a low tolerance for idiocy in their dates.
Mr. Right hasn’t turned up yet, and Mr Right-Now isn’t worth booking a wax appointment for. So when Catherine, London’s finest matchmaker, gets Rachel and Sarah to join her dating site where they can recycle their ex-boyfriends in exchange for an upgrade, they soon realise that anything could happen . . .
Three best friends, proving that sometimes it really isn’t you… it’s him.
Worldbuilding: It was a fun London contemporary setting, and the race to end the loneliness of today\s lives felt very current.
Characters: Catherine, Rachel & Sarah were very fun characters, and very current. I felt the represented different types of women of our days, involved in different careers but ambitious, driven, passionate about what they’re doing, and single for one reason or another. The race to end that singledom was hilarious, and authentic. I loved the RecycLove site idea and the way it put things into perspective for all three of them.
Plot: The three stories were fun and had me giggling at times, and the relaxed tempo of events was engaging but light. I can’t say I was riveted, but I’m used to reading UF-like stories, with action, fighting scenes, all that. But light and easy is fun too, from time to time, and this time it certainly was.
Writing: Third person, past tense narrative, from the POVs of the three friends. I loved their voices and the humor they all had.
Curb Appeal: Cool cover, but it was the blurb that hooked me – definite impulsive buy material for my light reading moods.
Match Me If you Can was a fun, light read, that made me laugh and was touching at times too. I recommend it to Chick-Lit readers by large, but also to say lovers of Contemporary light and fun reading. It was a page turner, and kept me up all night – that’s how fun it was!
