Perfect Timing is a funny, clean YA RomCom about finding the right guy at the wrong time

If you are looking for a light, funny YA romantic comedy, Perfect Timing is a good fit.  Set in LA, with believable teen voices, this contemporary romance is a fast read and a fun little escape.

 When sixteen year old Tori impulsively takes a job as a nighttime errand girl for an eccentric couple in LA, she thinks she is just keeping herself busy enough to get over her broken heart, but when she is partnered up with Adam, who is getting over his own heartache, she finds there might be more to love than all her self help books prepared her for.  A clean, contemporary YA romantic comedy, Perfect Timing is ideal for all those readers who want a fun, fast paced romp through the stranger side of LA and the lighter side of teen love.  Tori’s adventures and misadventures will take her from the back doors and bathrooms of exclusive clubs to the LA Juvenile Detention Center, and find her gathering wisdom from drunken celebrities and track suited psychics.  Messages about finding out who you are before trying to find someone else add a little depth, but this is ultimately a book that is made to entertain.  I would have liked a little more time on the job with Tori.  I felt there was a lot more potential for ridiculous and I wanted to watch!  I enjoyed this very much, and I think my high school readers will as well.  

I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.


About queenbook

When the final bell rings, I stash those messy piles of essays and analysis assignments in a desk drawer and I head home to a pile of good books. My kids and dog eat too many chicken nuggets and the house could be neater, but as long as I get my daily read, I guess we are doing all right. When I was twelve and fifteen and eighteen and twenty, I believed I needed to get out there and do those things I had just been reading about, which ended in disaster, tears, a tattoo that scares me every time I catch a glimpse of it in the mirror, and the realization that some of us are meant for action, and some of us are meant to critique the pace of action in a book. I read primarily YA fiction as I have a rather hulking classroom library and a hundred high school readers to engage daily. Nothing makes me happier than coming to school and finding an impatient teenager waiting by my door to turn in a book and get another one just like it. I adore a good zombie, a medieval princess, or girl assassin (I would like them all in one book if you are a writer looking for some inspiration). I add historical mystery to my wish list a year in advance, and you should get out of my way when the next Outlander book comes out. I have an embarrassing fondness for rock star books, but only if they don’t get too trashy and embarrass me. My favorite book of all time is The Blue Castle by L.M. Montgomery. My book boyfriends include Gilbert Blythe, Alonzo Wilder, and Jamie Fraser. They are mine and you can’t have them.
