Practice Makes Perfect by Carsen Taite


A light unpretentious romance that firmly sets out to entertain and kinda, sorta achieves this goal.

Campbell Clark gets together with her law school friends Abby and Grace to start their own law firm. Leaderboard Inc., a big noise in the world of social media ranking by obscure algorithms has an upcoming legal case against it and the whizkid behind Leaderboard, Brax is unhappy with his current law firm thinking that they don’t quite get his work. Wynne Garrity, who was also in the same year in the same law school as Campbell is given the job of handling and retaining Brax by her firm. This is a make-or-break case for Wynne as far as her possible partnership in the firm goes. Brax asks both firms to make pitches and then asks Campbell and Wynne to work together saying that after this case Leaderboard Inc. will decide which firm to go with in the long run.

Almost everything about this book (including the concept of a boutique firm started by college friends, the characterisations, the pitching of two opposing firms, the inadvertent betrayal by one MC (though in this one it wasn’t all that inadvertent) and the solution by the betraying party) is reminiscent of Melissa Brayden’s Kiss the Girl.

Till about 73% of the book there is build-up of the attraction between Campbell and Wynne which is flowing nicely and then suddenly it unravels because of an abrupt change in pace of their relationship. Also, you never completely grasp and connect with the MCs. There is an almost-but-not-quiteness about this book, but still and easy read.

(An extra star here because Campbell is adorable.)
