Match me If you Can

by Tiana Smith

34993791

Synopsis: Mia’s best friend Robyn is known for her matchmaking skills, which is perfect, because homecoming is just around the corner. But Robyn refuses to set Mia up with the guy of her dreams, which forces Mia to take matters into her own hands. She uses Robyn’s matchmaking service to make sure popular Vince Demetrius falls for her.

Vince asks her out, but Mia doesn’t count on Logan, the persistent school newspaper photographer who seems to like her out of the blue. 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.

Thoughts: What happens when you only see the outside of a person. When that outside is enough to convince you that you love them. This feels like what a normal person does when they romanticize a fictional character as perfect for them.
She finds out pretty fast that there is no spark and she screwed up more than her potential for love. Now she has to fix her naive mistakes and get all the right people together.
I would equate it to a Midsummer’s Night Dream but Puck didn’t screw up, she did. 

 

 

 

 


Perfectly Clueless

Synopsis:

She’s in love with her best friend and he doesn’t even know it…
Bianca Hayes has been in the friend zone way too long. For years, she watched her best friend Dylan McCafferty go through girl after girl in Bayfield High.
Never her.
Well, enough is enough. It’s time she stops pining over someone who will never return her feelings. A girl can only take so much.
So when another boy starts showing interest in her, Bianca decides it’s a step in the right direction.
But then Dylan starts acting like he’s…jealous?

Thoughts:

Adorable high school romance follows two best friends who are in love but haven’t really figured it out. One knows while the other may be seeing the light. Through this short read we see a lot of heartbreak but also a super sweet ending.
My only problem was they don’t have to make the guy into such a manslut. I mean why do all the guys need to be sluts in order to finally see the pretty innocent girl as the one?
