❤ It's got to be perfect review ❤

When Ellie Rigby hurls her three-carat engagement ring into the gutter, she is certain of only one thing, that she has yet to know true love.

Following months of disastrous internet dates and conflicting advice from her dysfunctional friends, she decides to take matters into her own hands. Although now, instead of just looking for a man for herself, she's certain her life's purpose is to find deep and meaningful love for all the singles in the world.

Five years on, running the UK's biggest matchmaking agency, and with thousands of engagements to her name, she has all the answers she needs. She knows why eighty-five percent of relationships fail. She knows why twenty-eight is the most eligible age for a woman. She knows that by thirty-five she'll have only a thirty-percent chance of marriage.

Most of all, she knows that no matter what, it has to be perfect. Or does it?


Ellie is fed up, after ditching her engagement she fears she is bound to be alone forever, but instead of sulking she decides she is going to help others not be alone, so along side some friends - with a small plan she heads out to head hunt eligible bachelors and woman to make up her dating agency, because her new calling in life is finding love for others.

Throwing all her energy into her task she sets aside her dream of love, fast forward five years and shes still not fully settled, the closest thing is the relationship she has been having and even that isnt working. It's got to be perfect is a laugh out loud look at one womans adventures in the world of love.

The narrative is split into two parts and fast forwards the story five years allowing us to see how things have changed (and what hasnt) I worried at first that i wouldnt be able to keep track of all the characters as more often than that they had strong personalities that were relative to the flow of the story. However i soon found that with ease i could remember who was who and who was dating who.

As the dating agency gets better so does the character list, but so does the attachment to all the characters we meet. Like i said this is a light hearted but honest and open look into the world of dating, love and making it out there independently. It was quick and page turning, it had you rooting for Ellie until the end.
