Mia's best friend Robyn is known for her matchmaking skills, which is perfect, because homecoming is just around the corner. But Robyn refuses to set Mia up with the guy of her dreams, which forces Mia to take matters into her own hands. She uses Robyn's matchmaking service to make sure popular Vince Demetrius falls for her.
Vince asks her out, but Mia doesn't count on Logan, the persistent school newspaper photographer who seems to like her out of the blue. Now she has to choose between Vince - the guy she knows is right for her - and Logan, who insists that she give him a chance. And she needs to make sure Robyn doesn't find out that Mia's been matchmaking behind her back.
Mia has two weeks before homecoming. Can she fix the mess she made or will she have to kiss her perfect match goodbye forever?

Match Me If You Can brought such a smile to my face and so much light to my heart, and I know it will do the same for so many readers. What a dreamy read. I relished the twists and turns throughout (especially that compulsively readable last half) and fell in love with the characters (Logan (!) and Robyn-a.k.a.-Cupid especially). The Mia (MC) and Logan exchanges were superb. MMIYC reminded me of To All the Boys I've Loved Before--I can’t wait for Smith's next book.
I was so lucky to get an advanced copy to read from Swoon Reads. Tiana Smith's debut is the perfect book for readers who love swoony romance and sassy main characters like Mia who get themselves into ridiculous, hilarious situations. I would recommend it for reluctant readers and fans of Kasie West.
The week before I read this book, I watched Jenny Han's To All the Boys I've Loved Before on Netflix. It was adorable. Match Me If You Can reminded me of my favorite Jenny Han books, and I devoured it within a few days. I fell in love with the characters immediately and their cute and witty banter. Smith's writing is so quick and fluid and packed with tension that I had a hard time walking away from this book. I needed to keep turning the pages to see how Mia was going to get herself out of the tangled mess she created for herself and end up with the guy she was meant to be with all along. Cute, charming, and completely immersive, this is one of those books I'd confidently recommend to anyone who likes YA rom-com knowing they will love it as much as I did. I can't say enough good things about this book.
This book grabbed me from the very first page. It was cute and funny, and in a lot of ways, very realistic for teenagers. There was a point late in the book when I was thinking how much drama the characters were adding to the whole thing, but I can't complain about a teen book having teens acting like teens. I do feel like Mia should have caught on to the fact that Vince was probably meant to be with her friend Elena, but sometimes teens are pretty self-absorbed and her not seeing past what she wanted and all the trauma that was happening to her totally makes sense. On the one hand, Logan was totally what people say about how the boys tease the girls they like and pick on them. But on the other hand, he was definitely so much fun and I don't know how Mia hadn't gotten any little inkling of interest in him before. I understand too when there is that perfect guy you're dreaming of, Vince, that it is often hard to see anyone else, especially if it seems like what you've been wishing for is finally coming true. I get helping her friend Robyn out, but in a way I hate that Robyn didn't tell Mia about the competition to try for. One thing I did wonder about though, with her dad having a way for her to get some journalism experience, wasn't there anything else to help her that way with her goals of becoming a journalist? I was a bit surprised her dad had never thought of that before. While I know it was teenagers and I mentioned before the extra drama is normal, I have to wonder if guys would be like Logan was at the end. Their pride and all that. Anyway, it was a page-turner, so hard to put it down, and another that I was lucky enough to have lots of extra time and almost read in a day!
