When Polly Met Olly by Zoe May

When Polly Met Olly Banner


Polly and Olly were never supposed to meet…

Polly might spend her days searching for eligible matches for her elite list of clients at her New York dating agency, but her own love life is starting to go up in smoke.

Even worse, she can’t stop thinking about the very person she’s meant to be setting her latest client up with… surely it can’t get any worse!

But then Polly bumps into oh-so-handsome Olly, who heads up a rival agency, and realizes that perhaps all really is fair in love and dating war…

Perfect for fans of Sophie Kinsella and Debbie Viggiano.


What a lovely, LOL romance that explores the world of online dating. When a woman takes a dodgy job working for To The Moon and Back Dating Agency pretending to be clients to woo potential online dates, she realizes her love life may need a little boost. However, her new love interest is the owner of a rival dating agency with a questionable reputation.

Polly is a photographer who needs her big break, but in the meantime, she will be a matchmaker of sorts and help her clients find the love of their life. When she is sent on an errand by her new boss to spy on the very handsome and sexy owner of the rival dating agency, she starts to rethink her own life choices.

I love the slow build-up to Polly and Olly’s relationship. Their first meeting is under false pretenses, but the attraction is instant and not in your face. The story builds on Polly’s life with her new job, her new clients, including the hunky, Brandon, her supportive and hilarious flatmate, Gabe, and her struggles as a photographer.

This is an extremely funny love story with an interesting take on dating. If you enjoy meeting a fun assortment of characters with a healthy dose of love in the air, give this book a try.

Thank you to Ms. May for giving me the opportunity to read this book with no expectation of a positive review.
