Now she has to choose between Vince – the guy she knows is right for her – and Logan, who insists that she give him a chance. And she needs to make sure Robyn doesn’t find out that Mia’s been matchmaking behind her back.

Contemporaries are great. They’re light. They’re happy. It’s easy to read, and this book definitely enveloped that. Match Me If You Can is all about Mia trying to find her perfect match with the help of her best friend. It deals with choosing between two different guys, and the rest is history.
You can see prom is a big thing here, so I love the way they did their promposals (extravagant and big). I also love how everybody made a big deal of it to find out who’s going with who and who, given the matchmaking business.
It’s cliché, but I love how it’s written. It’s funny and it doesn’t really drag on. The thing that really irked me however was Mia. She was annoying half the book. She talks on and on about Logan and Vince, and yes—these were somehow ‘essential’ to the book to finally see her development, but it just feels like the book was slamming it on your face. Yes, we understand Vince is ‘PERFECT’ and Logan is ‘NOT PERFECT’, stop it. But then, I absolutely love Logan and how he reminded me so much of the Weasley Twins ahaha. Definitely brightened up my day with his dates and ideas and his personality as well.
It was great that Mia FINALLY grew out of it though at the last few chapters. It was a fun read with good characters like Logan and Robyn, who brightened out the chapters ahead. I think this would be a great Netflix movie, the type that you snuggle into—and it’s cute that way.
It was my fastest read yet for this year, and I love the fun around it. If you’re looking for something that could get you out of your reading slump, or a a book that’s a great summer read, then this one is for you!
