I read this book because it has the same name as another book I wanted to read. When this popped up on the library site, I thought the premise sounded cute. And it is a great premise. It has a meet cute, fun main characters and a silly plot. It wasn't executed as well as it could have been, and the dialogue, etc. didn't always flow well.

Really fun story. It's a nice mixture of romantic comedy and romance.

I wanted to burn the book then drill it out out of my head. Anything just as painful would also have sufficed.
One of the worst books I have ever read. All those positive reviews r just lies.
This book has no flow and was hell to get through. I should have gone with my first instinct to put down the book.
Carroll can thank the Goodreads reading challenge -- the ONLY reason I finished the piece of crap that she calls a book.

VERY fun book. Great voice and a fantastic main character, who is quite relatable and clever-- of course, she's a high school teacher, so perhaps more so to me. A witty and entertaining and extremely light read. Completely enjoyed it.

The author's first book and I enjoyed it immensely. The reader is given a light and humorous look into the pitfalls of dating agencies and the things that can and probably do happen...
It took me awhile to get into this book. There were parts I liked, and there were some parts I thought were really annoying. Overall the book was alright.

Light and humorous albeit predictable. Look forward to reading others by her.

I used to tell people that I was born in Manhattan and raised in the Bronx; but the truth is that apart from the stellar education I received at the Fieldston School in Riverdale, much of who I am was shaped by my two grandmothers, who encouraged me to follow my bliss long before it became the sort of catchphrase you find on tee-shirts and new-age tchotchkes. My East Side grandmother took me to FA ...more
