Thank you to Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for organising this tour and to Zoe May, HQ and Netgalley for a copy to read in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
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…
Perfect for fans of Sophie Kinsella and Debbie Viggiano.

Looking for a fun romance with fabulous characters? You’ve found it.
Polly Wood is an aspiring and talented photographer but taking photographs just isn’t paying the bills so she accepts a job working for a dating agency. Additional to matchmaking, she doesn’t realise the job will entail is messaging prospective dates on behalf of clients and spying on a rival, glossier agency.
This is such a sweet romance with adorable characters who capture your heart from the opening pages. Polly herself is a very relatable character and I love that she is just down to Earth and ‘normal’. Her best friend Gabe (Gabriella on a weekend) provides her with hugs, sound advice and snuggles but cannot give her the big romance and fireworks she desires so much. Derek the boss is the type of boss we all wish for and the customers of the dating agency are quirky but equally lovable.
The story is a little predictable but who cares? You kind of know what’s coming but still become engrossed and delighted in the moment when it happens because as a reader you become so invested in the characters. . I think this novel is more about the growth of the characters and the plot development than the actual ending. I loved seeing Polly grow and find her strengths more than anything else.
This is my first outing with Zoe May but I’m hungry for more. Highly recommend this fun and enjoyable read.
