How adorable is this!

Don Tillman is a professor of genetics that has a schedule for everything; when to eat, go to the gym, what he is having for dinner each week and how long it takes for him to finish a conversation.

Tillman is looking for love but has a hard time dating and going through the social motions. So with his only two friends he creates “The Wife Project” a questionnaire and dating process in order to find his perfect wife.  That includes no drinking (not including wine), smoking, cursing or someone who tends to be late. But here comes Rosie and she is everything is not looking for. Completely ignoring his quest for a wife, Rosie seeks Tillman’s help to find her real father.

Neither Tillman or Rosie fell they are a match for each other but enough time together proves other wise. I thought this was book was cute and funny. Tillman is so set on how things need to be that it is amazing to see his change, once he and Rosie get closer. I really loved his character. He was funny without being funny and he was so genuine and loveable that I just couldn’t get enough of him.

Rosie was Rosie; she played her part very well. She’s a grown woman and although at one point she didn’t really know what she wanted (what PERSON does) she wasn’t annoying about it. I couldn’t complain about her she fit well with the story. My only issue with this book is it feels a bit forced especially towards the middle. I loved the idea a woman looking for her father while a man is looking for a wife; I think it is an original idea. However, I felt that the author was reaching a bit too hard.

Overall I give this book 9 out of 10. Very cute chick lit. Don’t forget to like & share :)
