Cover Love: Pretty much how I pictured both Piers and Sidney
Point of View: 3rd person, following mostly Piers
My Rating: 4 Stars
If I gave half stars I would say this was a solid three and a half for me. However, I do not do halves so I have rounded up to four, simply because it did make me laugh several times and I love Piers.
I thought Piers was lovely, and I really liked his character. He was believable and so funny. Sidney... well she annoyed me. I know at the start her character was all about herself. And I understand that, I do. It's just that there were times when I felt like she was a little over the top. They were running for their lives, and she wants to stop to go shopping for new clothes? Is this really the right time Sidney?
However, even in saying that by the end I warmed to her. I didn't really get how Piers fell for her at the start though, because she was pretty self absorbed. But by the end I wanted them together so that is all that matters.
The side characters, Little and Large, were also hilarious. I couldn't help thinking of them as two bumbling bandits, and a lot of the laughs came from these two.
Overall, I recommend Paris Love Match to those who enjoy a good caper. The banter and dynamics between Piers and Sidney is funny and well written, they bicker more than an old married couple. The ending is smart and very well laid out.
