My Rating: 4 Stars!
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.
I adored Robin's debut novel Ditched, it had me laughing constantly and then in tears the next moment but always, with a smile on my face. It had such a retro 80's John Hughes vibe to it that I couldn't help but love it.
With a new novel coming out, I just knew it was something I needed to try. I promised myself I would read all of her YA books because I just had so much darn fun with the first one.
I am so excited to say that her second novel, Perfect Timing, did not disappoint. IT was every bit as fun, laugh inducing, heart melting, and smiling making, as the first.
I immediately liked Tori and as soon as Adam was introduced, fell in love with his geeky shyness as well. I have said this before and I will say it every single time, it is so hard to not fall for the shy, nerdy type with a heart as sweet as can be.
This was such a fun, quirky read that kept me turning the pages from the first to the last, satisfied with the way it all came about and ended. I am so very glad I found this author, she really does know how to write and she does it well with hijinks around every corner and a romance that is always sweet but subtle in it's own right and characters that are every bit as lovable as the plot is.
