Book Review: Was It Good For You?


If you’re not a ten on Sophie’s spreadsheet, you’re never getting her between the bedsheets…

No aspect of Sophie’s life goes unrecorded in her Excel spreadsheets, so when she accidentally sends it to her entire contact list instead of just her best friend, Sophie has a lot of uncomfortable explaining to do.

First on the list? Dr Michael Adams. After a disastrous first date, Michael scored a ‘3’ on Sophie’s ‘love life’ tab, but when she shows up to apologise for sharing his result with the world, he issues an unexpected challenge: ten dates to prove that love can’t be calculated by an equation or contained by boxes on a spreadsheet.

Sophie isn’t someone who’s used to thinking outside the digital box, but there’s something about Michael that makes her want to take a chance…

My Review


This is the first book I’ve read by this author but I’d definitely like to read her others now. Sophie runs her whole life according to spreadsheets and has now extended that to her love life. A disappointing date with her zumba teacher’s brother-in-law Michael leads to her scoring him just 2.5 out of ten, thereby ruling him out as a potential partner. When she accidentally sends her spreadsheet out to everyone she knows, he sees his score.

Having once previously sent a romantic – and slightly saucy! – text to a colleague instead of the man I was dating at the time, I had every sympathy with Sophie.

This story of how Sophie and Michael agree to ten dates to prove whether or not her spreadsheet approach to dating works is a really fun read. Michael is an especially lovely character, a real heart-throb.
