Book Review: When Polly Met Olly

About When Polly Met Olly

Polly and Olly were never supposed to meet…

Polly might spend her days searching for eligible matches for her elite list of clients at her New York dating agency, but her own love life is starting to go up in smoke.

Even worse, she can’t stop thinking about the very person she’s meant to be setting her latest client up with… surely it can’t get any worse!

But then Polly bumps into oh-so-handsome Olly, who heads up a rival agency, and realizes that perhaps all really is fair in love and dating war…

Perfect for fans of Sophie Kinsella and Debbie Viggiano.


My Review

I know that you shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover, but the bright pink and  sweet cartoon characters on the immediately grabbed my attention. I’m glad that I picked up this book and read what was inside because it was a very sweet story to read for Valentine’s Day. I couldn’t help but be drawn to this cute romantic comedy.

This was a light and breezy book to read and the story moved quickly. This is the first book that I’ve ever read by Zoe May, and I’m pleased to say that her writing style reminds me of Sophie Kinsella (another author whom I enjoy). My favorite thing about this book was the creative concept. It was a very cute premise and a fun story.

Thank you to Rachel from Rachel’s Random Resources for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

About Zoe May

When Polly Met Olly Author Photo

Zoe May lives in London 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.
