Thank you to NetGalley and Harper Collins for giving me the opportunity to read and review 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…

My Review

I really enjoyed this book. Despite the fact that the title pretty much gives away which direction this story is going to go in, I still loved it.

I will forever find books set in New York endearing and I will forever pick them up solely based on NYC. However, I loved the combination of English girl away from home trying to find her feet in the Big Apple.

I also really enjoyed that, as a single woman in her late 20’s who has used dating sites before, I could relate to a lot of what was being said. Not only from the single people’s POV but also from the matchmakers POV. There was quite a bit that I hadn’t thought about as well that really struck a chord with me.

I haven’t read anything from Zoe Many before but I really liked her writing style and I shall definately keep my eyes open for her books from here on out.

4.5 stars for When Polly Met Olly.

I’d recommend this book for fans of Lindsey Kelk (specifically The Single Girls To Do List), Veronica Henry and Mhairi McFarlane.
