The Perfect Find (English Edition) eBook Kindle
Will a forty-year-old woman with everything on the line – her high-stakes career, ticking biological clock, bank account – risk it all for a secret romance with the one person who could destroy her comeback, for good?
Jenna Jones, former It-girl fashion editor, is forty, broke and desperate for a second chance. When she’s dumped by her longtime fiancé and fired from Darling magazine, she begs for a job from her arch nemesis, Darcy Vale. Darcy, the beyond-bitchy publisher of StyleZine.com, agrees to hire her rival – only because her fashion site needs a jolt from Jenna’s old school cred. But Jenna soon realizes she’s in over her head.
Jenna’s working with digital-savvy millennials half her age, has never even “Twittered,” and pretends to still be a Fashion Somebody while living a style lie (she sold her designer wardrobe to afford her sketched-out studio, and now quietly wears Walmart’s finest). What’s worse is that the twenty-two-year-old videographer assigned to shoot her web series is driving her crazy. Wildly sexy with a smile Jenna feels in her thighs, Eric Combs is way off-limits – but almost too delicious to resist.

But...so many issues, not least of which is the need for a good proofread to fix the many issues; missing words, grammar errors etc. A particular issue which often led to confusion as to who was talking was the paragraph breaks in the middle of dialogue without distinguished quotation marks, and dialogue from both characters on the same line.I
Another was all the linked websites and pages. Do a list in the front matter of at the end of the book but having them running throughout the story was irritating.
And while I completely understand that fashion was a huge part of the story, in the first half of the book in particular,the name and label dropping was uber excessive and off putting. It is possible to write a story with less specifics.
Again, in the first half of the book, some of the run-on sentences were mind blowing. I appreciated the use of colons and semi-colons but sometimes a full stop (period) is just as effective.
I keep mentioning "the first half" because it does feel like as the book went on, the writing style relaxed. At first I was hit with a feeling of an author trying too hard. To be funny. To be clever.
Other than the grammatical errors, all the issues I've mentioned give an impression of a "pretentious" book which if cleaned up and simplified could be a really great story.
Another author recommended this book and having noted it a while ago, I’m glad I decided to follow up on it because this book is a lot of things. It’s age difference, it’s so incredibly funny and it about impossible love. I savoured this read because I lacked reading time and really this helped me dwell in the book for a week.
I love an older woman, younger man trope and this book worked that angle so damn well. Age isn’t their only complication, being colleagues and a familial connection makes this ten times worse. These two however, bond over friendship, similarities, shared love of things and it’s a lovely slow spiral. There’s a fair amount of spatting too.
“Look,” said Eric, “we had such a promising start to this conversation. We can’t do yesterday again. I have banter burnout.”
And banter is right, the diaglogue and interactions were everything and so well written.
Jenna is such a ‘real’ character, flawed, sometimes ridiculous with a huge heart. I found her to be a strong woman, such that I could be satisfied with her decisions. She had learnt what she didn’t want in life and sought better; I admired her. Eric was a hot, immature and yet sweet guy, he grew on me. These two together were something something but more than that there was a longing, a deeper connection.
“It was like she’d left her personality in a cab somewhere years ago, and he’d found it, dusted it off, and delivered it to her doorstep wrapped in a red velvet bow. She felt alive, understood, -and drop-dead sexy.”
So, this is contemporary romance done good, it felt different to what’s generally out there and I devoured that spark of uniqueness and humour. Highly recommended.

I have never finished reading this book because it would have been a waste of time to me.
