This book was so freaking hilarious that I banned myself from reading it at work during my breaks because I was making so much noise laughing.
Michele Gorman hasn't been on my radar for long, but I will definitely, absolutely read each and every book I can find. So far, every new book I read is better than the last, and that's one heck of an achievement.
Even having finished the book, I couldn't tell you which character I liked the most. It wasn't ...more

Match Me If You Can by Michele Gorman was a fantastically fun, flirty and fabulously entertaining novel in which three best friends, Catherine, Rachel and Sarah, set out on their separate courses in life, yet remain alongside each other as they do so. From careers and marriage, to siblings and ex's new women, I thoroughly enjoyed following the best friends as they dealt with the obstacles of life that tumbled into each of their ways along the path to happines ...more
Story is told in third person from friends Sarah, Catherine and Rachel. Catherine is owner of the matchmaking site RecycLove.com and convinces both Sarah and Rachel to join to find love.
And that's basically it.

This is one of those classically tasteful, heartwarming, and magical stories you aspire to find in the bookstore. One that's going to make you cry and laugh all at once and have your heart just wanting to burst out of your chest with giddy emotions. Yes I was a happy crier by the end. It was just too perfect. I loved Catherine, Rachel, and Sarah. And all the side characters they all added such depth to these ladies and made them come aliv ...more
This story is told in third person concentrating in alternate chapters on three characters' lives; three female housemates navigating the modern London dating scene. Throughout the book, I enjoyed the characters and the plot for the most part, however there was one point in the book (about 80% through) where o ...more
The first thing that drew my attention was the title of this book - Match Me if You Can - it's fantastic, I personally love it and it really stands out from the crowd. Then the premise - it's brilliant, just brilliant, and I don't think I have ever came across such concept before. I mean, recycling exes - how clever and unique is this?
But in fact the story itself has not much to do with recycling exes. I was expecting a very different story, full of awkward, embarrassing, funny situations regard ...more
Something I really like about Michele Gorman is that her stories are always so original. With her, there's no girl meets boy; with her, there are strong down to earth women who might be looking for love but also have a thousand other things in their heads too, they have dreams, concerns and expectations. And above all, they have each other's backs. And that's exactly what Match Me If You Can is about.
Reading the blurb, I expected a f ...more
Match Me If You Can is a humorous chick lit novel about a woman named Catherine, known as “London’s best date doctor”, who owns a dating business called Recyclove. She convinces her best-friends and housemates, Sarah and Rachel, to join her site and get their exes to sign up along with them. Recyclove is in the business of recycling your ex, and upcycling to a better relationship!
This novel had me laughing sooooo hard. I actually got the attention of my m ...more
I’m a big fan of Michele Gorman, and try to read everything she comes out with. This book sounded fairly unique to me for being in the chick lit/rom com family. For some reason, the book started out very slow to me. I just struggled to become invested in the characters, but I can’t honestly put my finger on why. Sometimes books that have a lot of section breaks can make it easy for me to put down, and maybe that’s what happened here. I just found myself putting it down a ...more

However for a group of three friends, I found that I was warming to Sarah's and Rachel's stories a lot more than Catherine's and at times I forgot Catherine was even there. That isn't to say I disliked her, just wasn't too sure about her.
Catherine runs a dating website called RecycLove.com where in order to join it you have to not only bring an ex to join, but also write each other da ...more
Really loved this one! It was the ideal type of women's lit/chick lit book for me. I really liked the characters, the premise was interesting and fresh in ways while still providing what is expected from the genre, and I'm a sucker for books sets in London. Also, the book provides some romance without being a romance novel and without being cheesy. I like that the women are portrayed as being st ...more

That's how this book has left me. I wanted to like it so badly, but the pace was extremely slow. I felt disconnected with their characters (it's written in 3rd person) and I didn't like them very much.
This book follows three friends, Catherine, who owns a match-making site, Sarah, and Rachel. Catherine convinces Sarah and Rachel to join the dating site, but there's a catch. Their ex-boyfriends have to sign up too.
I just felt that the book was too slow paced. They ...more
I've never really come across books by Michele Gorman, but after reading 'Match me if you can' (which I borrowed from my sister) I will be sure to read some of her other books.
After looking at the reviews for this particular book, I'm afraid that I might not be so popular.
I'll start with the good points first.
Despite the front cover looking a lot like children's novel, I’m really glad that I didn't end up judging the book by its cover. The beginning o ...more
