Keeping Mr. Right Now by Robin Bielman

Keeping Mr Right NowReceived an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review

I really loved Wild About Her Wingman but unfortunately this latest offering from Robin Bielman wasn’t for me.

There was zero chemistry between Zane and Sophie and they just didn’t work for me as a couple.  The connection between them was forced and I honestly didn’t see what Zane saw in Sophie and vice versa.  Additionally, their hang-ups about their past seem to have been created and thrust on them in an effort to make the characters more interesting: a person with a degree in brain science suddenly deciding they want to go into marketing seems random and unbelievable (or at least needs more justification) and then there was Zane’s preoccupation with his lack of education and his father which I just couldn’t bring myself to care about.

There was also the inclusion of random characters like Zane’s mother and Sophie’s mother (who we basically meet through random phone calls) which I feel could have been left out.  I don’t feel like it was ever sold to me why getting the spokesperson role for SHE was so important to Zane and Sophie’s clumsiness was awkward and made me cringe.

I like the author but didn’t like the book.
