*This book was received in exchange for an honest review*
After a break-up with her boyfriend, Tori Wright decides to get her mind off the guy and takes a job running errands for an eccentric couple. Suddenly she finds herself involved in the crazy world of LA nightlife--nightclubs, palm readers, movie stars, and a roving pack of paparazzi. After a misunderstanding lands her in jail, she has one night to clear her name, help a movie starlet avoid the paparazzi, and find Adam...the coworker who is quickly stealing her heart.
As she makes decisions that can change the course of her life, Tori discovers just how far she'll go to set the record straight.
But is she too late?
Perfect Timing is a charming romantic comedy that will have you wondering if true love can be found at the wrong time. It's a teen romance that will appeal to readers of New Adult contemporary romance and romantic comedy. Perfect for fans of Stephanie Perkins, Jenny B. Jones, Rainbow Rowell, and Sophie Kinsella.

My Thoughts...
 A Perfect Timing was a sweet book but I felt like I couldn't warm to it at all. Yes, it was a sweet contemporary book and it did have a alright story line, it just felt like the book was written book was written by a teenager on Wattpad and it made it dragged on for quite a bit. This is my first time reading a book by Robin Mellom and I have heard so many great things about her. this book was definitely a disappointment for me. I kind of felt like skimming some parts of the book  because I felt bored out of my mind.

What was so good about the book was the start of it. There was the fun and loving Tori who wrote a blog with her mum on how to deal with relationships or a divvorece. It was brilliant, and I was warming up to the book. Then the half way point hit and it just slowly got colder and I was glad that I had finished the book (not in a good way). I just thought that things went to plan for Tori a few too many times and it felt like she was a completely unrealistic character. Also, I  hate how authors always find it necessary to have a gay best friend, I'm all about gay rights, but it was so stereotypical it hurt. He called her by her pet name of 'puppy' and was just annoying. You know not all gay men carry handbags. I think that character was only put into the book to try and make it seem likeable but seriously, some people use a gay best friend as an accessory in their books.
The only way to describe the book was that I just didn't get it at all. I didn't get how the romance happened, I didn't get the middle parts, I didn't get the plot twist, I didn't get the characters. I just felt confused. I just thought that so much happened that it wasn't exciting. Now, I am an eye roller and I have probably exercised my eyes so much I could lift weights from them,that's how much I'm annoyed. I probably only requested this book for its cover, yes Naomi has judged a book by its cover *gasp*

Overall, I do not recommend the book, the only reason it was given 2 stars was because I enjoyed the first part of the book.

Keep Reading,

  1. I think the style of writing here would definitely bother me if it gave off the whole internet written vibe and a bit young as well. I am gonna have to pass this one up >>
