Just haven’t met you yet. Book review.

Just haven't met you met. By Cate Woods.

From the blurb
Percy James has everything a girl could want: a comfy flat, a steady relationship and a truly lovely group of friends. Then she is approached by Eros Tech. Eros is 'the future of love' – an agency that brings together soulmates using phone data. Percy has been identified as a match for one of Eros's super wealthy clients. The only problem is she already has a boyfriend …but what if this is *destiny*? Would you – could you – pass up a chance to meet your one true love?

So, Percy is trundling along in a comfortable relationship but then, EROS, a dating company who claim to find your ultimate compatible soulmate, invite her to meet her match. After umm-ing and ah-ing over whether it would be cheating Percy decides to go ahead, but her ultimate compatible soulmate comes as something of a shock.

This book has a lot going for it. I like the authors style and I felt that Percy was a well written relatable character. Prone to fantasising about a situation before it happens – we all do that don't we?

I actually enjoyed the whole cast of characters in this book. Because we meet Percy's family, her group of close knit girl friends, and her colleagues, it keeps things varied. Cate Woods has done well to introduce a fairly large cast of characters without it ever becoming muddled.

I particularly liked Mel, a work colleague with a Michael Bublé obsession.

Just haven't met you yet is a little predictable at times, but I often wonder if we've peaked in finding new storylines? Anyway, this book is enjoyable enough that the predictable-ness didn't really matter.

There was one thing that disappointed me about the story though. I don't want to drop any big spoilers on you but when Percy meets her proposed soulmate I thought oh, ok, this is a fresh storyline! Definitely something different for this genre, and I was really intrigued to see where it would lead, unfortunately it didn't lead anywhere. I felt like an opportunity to break the mould was missed.

Despite my disappointment I'm still giving Just haven't met you yet a respectable 4 out of 5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️because it's a very enjoyable read.

Just haven't met you yet is the free book of the week on iBooks.
