A hilarious and heartfelt rom-com about having it all, slowing down to see the big picture, and finding out that the person you least expect could be your perfect fit

Josephine Davis has spent her entire twenties building Revenant, a fashion brand headquartered in downtown Austin. When her biggest investor orders Josie to hire a consultant, the last person she expects to be working with is Will Grant – the twin brother of her ex best friend.

Sure, Will and Josie may have shared one mistake of a kiss during senior spring break nine years ago, but they’ve never been friends. She remembers him as moody; he always thought of her as shallow. Romance isn’t on the table for either of them until they blink, and realize there’s a reason they can’t stay away from each other.

But there’s Will’s sister to consider, whom Josie hasn’t spoken with since their falling out. Not to mention, Will and Josie live seventeen hundred miles apart. And it’s not like she has time for a boyfriend anyway when she’s an overworked CEO. As Josie’s burnout looms while she falls deeper and harder for Will, she contends with the fact that eventually, she’ll have to make a choice: stay alone to be productive, or slow down to be in love.

This book is amazing. The writing is sharp and insightful - and at times just charming. Well-developed characters with believable cute romance. A must read and I'm looking forward to reading more by Clare Gilmore.

A special thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin's Press for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

If Clare Gilmore writes it. I am going to read it!

This book was thoughtful, kind and oh so swoon worthy. The characters were exceptionally crafted, they were both tender, and fiercely independent. I valued the strong female characters and the multiple healthy relationships! The moments between Josie and Will were thoughtful, kind and filled with so much love. I cried the happiest tears. Every time I picked it up a felt a sense of calm fall over me as I fell back into Josie and Will's story.

I really appreciated how this book had me thinking critically and reflecting on hustle culture,

This book is perfection! I will definitely be re-reading this one over and over again to heal my soul. Reading it was like having Clare Gilmour give me the biggest book hug!

I have to say, I really enjoyed this book. It was almost perfection in the way that the author captured what it is to be a moder day working woman and the impacts on our personal and professional lives. That is to say, this book brought great on the romance, but that was not all the story added up to and I personally enjoyed another, accurate, aspect. But speaking of romance - wow, what a great character Will was. He just hit Josephine's needs in all the right places, and nothing was over the top or unbelievable.

Sophomore slump? Don’t know her.

Clare Gilmore absolutely slayed her sophomore release. Perfect Fit is like a love letter to millennial women addicted to the grind, whose sense of worth is directly tied to the work they do and the perception others have of them. (👋🏻 it’s me, hi!) Josie’s journey is a lot of our journey’s and I cried with pride in my heart when she finally had enough.

And my god, WILL GRANT. How do I even put this man into words? He is perfection. My physical copy is going to be a mess when this book releases, thanks to all of the swoon-worthy moments he provides. He loves Josie in exactly the way she needs him to - with care and intention and space. This man’s love language is DEFINITELTY acts of service - from loading uhauls to club reservations to caretaking to filling her fridge, Will shows Josie love in every moment.

I will definitely be reading my eARC over and over and over. So grateful to SMP for sending a copy my way.

Thank you St. Martin’s Press and Netgalley for inviting me to read this ARC in exchange for my honest review!

This book was perfect. I think one of the author’s greatest strengths is the way she is lets her characters be known. They are always multidimensional and we know them in spaces outside of the relationship. This book had me GIGGLING and made me feel things books haven’t made me feel in a long time. It was so good and easy to read.

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 5/5 stars

A warm and heartfelt romance from the author of Love Interest. Josephine has spent her 20s building her brand, Revenant, and now she is a CEO. She is also burnt out. One day, she (literally) runs into Will Grant, the twin brother of her ex-best friend. The two have a history and now they are forced together when Will ends up being the consultant she wanted to hire. Can they get over their old issues?

I adored this book. It reminded me of the movie, The Intern. Josie is such an interesting character and I was equally as invested in her personal journey as I was the romance. The chemistry was spot-on. The character arcs were perfection. Absolutely loved this one.

“His praise is like helium, slipping out of his mouth on a breath and under my limbs. I feel buoyed.” Where twenty other authors would have written about a man giving a woman butterflies in her stomach, that’s the image Clare Gilmore conjured instead. And that’s what set Clare apart from the first time I read her words.

I talk about this a lot, the anxiety that a follow-up book from an author is not going to be as good as the thing you so loved. And I really, REALLY loved Clare’s debut, “Love Interest.” But I had a feeling it wouldn’t have to worry about this here, and she proves with “Perfect Fit” that she is a consistent talent and a breath of fresh air in the world of contemporary romance. She had me laughing at page one and crying the best kind of tears by the end.

“Perfect Fit” is so much more than a romance, though the relationship between Josie and Will is so beautiful to watch unfold. Clare celebrates the importance of friendship as well as the importance of love. She also gives what feels like such a real look into what it’s like to be a successful woman, the struggles that come along with it, and whether it matters if you “have it all.”

“Perfect Fit” comes out in October, and I highly recommend preordering it!
