Madam Love, Actually
by Rich Amooi
Genres: Romance, Contemporary Romance, Romantic Humor
Release Date: March 29, 2018
Purchase from: Amazon
My Rating: ★★★★☆
Lance Parker is an arrogant know-it-all. As author of the bestselling book Your Soulmate Doesn’t Exist, he says love is for losers. Madam Love is a fortune teller and matchmaker who has brought hundreds of couples together.
When the two clash during a radio interview, she admits even someone as irritating and impossible as Lance has a soulmate. He says she’s delirious and a fraud. Then the gauntlet is laid down: Madam Love has two weeks to prove Lance wrong and find him a soulmate.
When Lance meets wonderful Emma by chance, he doesn’t know what to think anymore. But Emma has a secret. She’s Madam Love, actually. And it’s going to take a whole lot more than a crystal ball to get her out of this mess.
Madam Love, Actually was a fun read. It’s fairly obvious precisely where the book is going to go almost from the first page, but the journey is still fun and interesting.
I didn’t notice a single error while reading, and i don’t have any complaints or issues. I would, however, like to see a companion recipe book so I can make the cupcakes mentioned throughout the story.
Both Lance and Emma develop naturally throughout the book, and their evolving relationship is a fun ride. I cringed along with Emma through the difficult bits toward the end.
Perhaps because it’s such an easy read, Madam Love, Actually didn’t pull me in enough to award it five stars, but it’s a solid four. While not labeled as such, I think it would be a huge hit with the YA demographic, but it’s certainly entertaining enough for adults to enjoy as well.
