Want to snag that certain someone? You need Miss 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?

My Thoughts:  Sometimes you just want to read something fun that doesn’t require a lot of complicated thinking.  Sometimes you just wanted to zip through a book, or maybe not.  I love having the “chick lit” books on my shelf as an option for the quick and easy read.  You need to mix it up every once in a while.

Sasha was an interesting character or rather her money-making hobby was interesting.   I don’t remember being boy-crazy in high school and it wasn’t so long ago that I might be remembering things incorrectly.  Therefore, I don’t think I would’ve had much use for a match maker, but I think a lot of us could use it now that we’re adults.

Part of me despises the idea that you have to be in a relationship to truly be happy, but then the “Disney brain-washed” part of me loves the idea that there’s someone for everyone.  I did have an issue with the fact that all of this was taking place in high school.  I understand having a high school sweetheart, but don’t push that crap on kids.  They’re young and should be having fun, not settling down.

Derek was just okay.  I was fairly unimpressed with him as the heart-throb though.  He didn’t really do anything for the story.  It was actually the perfect example of an author telling you something versus showing you.  I felt like I was being told that Derek was an amazing guy and he had intense chemistry with Sasha, but I wasn’t seeing any of that come through in the story itself.

Overall I did enjoy Miss Match.  It was a fun, quick read that gave me a much needed break from the many serious books I’ve been reading.  I would recommend Miss Match more for the middle grade, high school crowd or for someone specifically looking for a light read that takes place in high school.

3 out of 5 Bookmarks = It was just so cute.
