Miss Match by Wendy Toliver

Summary/Cover Image from Author's Website:
Has this miss finally found her match?
Sasha Finnegan has always had a knack for setting people up, and at sixteen, she's turned her talent into an online business, molding high school crushes into true love.

But Sasha finds her toughest match yet when hottie Derek Urban asks her to set him up with Sasha's gorgeous sister, Maddie. It's not that Derek isn't a good catch. In fact, after spending so much time with him, Sasha can't help but think he's perfect -- for her, that is.

Can Sasha push her feelings aside for the sake of her business? Or has this miss finally found her match?
Review:

Miss Match is definitely one of my favorite Simon Romantic Comedies out of the ones I've read so far, if not my absolute favorite. I mean, it was such a cute and funny teen romance read, one that I truly couldn't put down even for even a second once I began. Sure, it's not the most unique read out there, but it was cute and just the read I needed after several darker books I had read prior.

Sasha has always been known as the girl to go to when you need help getting together with your current crush, so now that she's in need for money, she's using this fact to use since she decides to start her own matchmaking business. Though, Sasha soon learns matchmaking isn't always as fun as looks when she's asked to hook up her sort of crush with her sister, and with the more time she spends with him, she's starting to realize he may just be the guy for her, not her sister. But what's a matchmaker to do when she faces this sort of problem? Sasha has no clue but she's sure to find out.

Sahsa was a protagonist that was easy to relate to from the get-go because for the most part she's just an ordinary girl. She worries about her weight (what girl doesn’t?), she kind of always feels like she's inferior to her older and more popular sister, and she's worried that the guy she likes may not like her back. Also, she's pretty funny, making her a great protagonist to lead Miss Match. I liked her love interest Derek at lot as well. He was sweet, funny, and just oh-so-adorable, basically the typical lead male in these types of stories.

One of my favorite parts about Miss Match was Sasha's matchmaking business because to be honest I just about love all stories that include matchmaking. I mean, it's just so fun to read about all the different situations a matchmaker faces in their business. Plus, when matchmaking is involved it's almost always includes funny chaos as well.

Wendy Toliver's writing was pretty great and it never ceased to bring the story fully to life. I can't wait to read more by her!

In all, if you're looking for a funny and romantic read, look no further because Miss Match is the book for you!

Grade: B+
