Three friends upcycle their exes through London’s most popular boyfriend recycling website, but haven’t bargained on the consequences of the exchanges they make.

Perfect for fans of Sophie Kinsella and Lindsey Kelk.

Meet best friends Catherine, Rachel and Sarah. Yet to find Mr Right, they’ve been settling for Mr Right Now. But when Catherine, London’s finest matchmaker, gets the girls to join her dating site where they can recycle their ex-boyfriends, they soon realise that anything could happen.

Rachel's office romance James was a big fat mistake and she's more than happy to upcycle him… Or is she? Homebody Sarah hasn't had a date in years but when her transformation finds men falling at her newly-pedicured feet, will her popularity be worth the sacrifices she’s making? And Catherine falls asleep more often on her desk than on a man, so when she builds the perfect partner who ticks all her boxes, surely it's a recipe for love . . . not disaster?

There’s someone for everyone, right? These best friends are about to find out for themselves . .

Enjoyable story about three best friends and housemates, Catherine, Rachel and Sarah who are all searching for Mr. Right. Catherine convinces Rachel and Sarah to join the dating site she owns with her ex-husband. The interesting catch to joining this site is in order to sign up, you have to bring your ex along and they have to sign up as well. I found the idea of “recycling” your ex for an upgrade to be very intriguing.

I liked these women and enjoyed their different personalities and quirks from Catherine’s nearly A-type personality and coping with her ex-husband getting remarried, to Rachel’s determination and drive as an architect trying to win a competition for her drawing to be chosen by the firm’s biggest client, to Sarah who designs greeting cards, loves to bake and worries about finding a new care home for her sixteen-year-old sister with Down’s Syndrome.

I was rooting for all of these women to succeed not only in the romance department, but also in their chosen professions. I did find myself getting annoyed at the building crew who seemed to be tearing up the house more than remodeling it, but I always get nervous when someone is knocking holes into walls.

Michele Gorman is an author I have always enjoyed reading. She writes characters that are easy to relate to and care about with unique stories that entertain without being cookie-cutter.

My Final Verdict: Readers who enjoy laugh aloud moments with romance to ease the burdens of the daily grind of life and career should pick this one up.
