Surely fairy tales don’t happen in real life?
After being jilted at the altar, high-flying journalist Sam doesn’t believe in love any more – and she certainly doesn’t believe in fairy tales! So, when she’s asked to cover the Royal Wedding, it’s the last thing she wants to do.
And when she crashes into a ridiculously handsome stranger, Anders, things go from bad to worse. But as the big day draws closer, Sam finds herself being swept up in the excitement – as well as swept off her feet by Anders!
But there’s something that Anders is hiding from her – and when he finally reveals his secret, might Sam just have the happy-ever-after she never thought she wanted…?
About the Author :
Zoe May lives in Oxford and writes romantic comedies. Zoe has dreamt of being a novelist since she was a teenager. She spent her twenties living in London, where she worked in journalism and copywriting before writing her debut novel, Perfect Match. Having experienced the London dating scene first hand, Zoe could not resist writing a novel about dating, since it seems to supply endless amounts of weird and wonderful material!
Perfect Match was one of Apple’s top-selling books of 2018. It was also shortlisted for the Romantic Novelists’ Association’s Joan Hessayon Award, with judges describing it as ‘a laugh out loud look at love and self-discovery – fresh and very funny’.
As well as writing, Zoe enjoys walking her dog, painting and, of course, reading.
I must confess I’m not a big royal fan (Except of Carl Philip from Sweden, he’s hot! Married, but, hey … Jätte vacker!!), nor a real lover of romantic books, but somehow this book got my attention and I instantly knew it would be my cup of tea.
I guess at first it was because the main character is a journalist (my dream job) and Anders seemed like a Scandinavian name to me.
Whilst reading I discovered that there was so much more as I really connected with Sam.
Like me she’s not a fan of weddings, has no interest in the royal family and just wants to do her job properly.
I definitely enjoyed the laugh out loud and relatable details about her life and then there was Anders!
Another great character and worthy of his name as he’s a fascinating man with a kind heart.
He would captivate my attention too I must confess. 😉
Furthermore I loved the chemistry between the two and the various twists and turns in this book.
It all got me hooked and supporting for them almost immediately.
For a not so big lover of this genre that says alot I believe.
A recommendable summer read!
