Percy James has everything a girl could want: a comfy flat, a steady relationship and a truly lovely group of friends. Then she is approached by Eros Tech. Eros is 'the future of love' - an agency that brings together soulmates using phone data. Percy has been identified as a match for one of Eros's super wealthy clients. The only problem is she already has a boyfriend . . . but what if this is *destiny*? Would you - could you - pass up a chance to meet your one true love?

Just Haven't Met You Yet, is an impressive and enjoyable debut novel  by Cate Woods. It is a fun look at what would happen if a computer created a stronger and more realistic algorithm for an enhanced dating site, always pairing you with your soul mate. 

For Percy James is approached by Eros Tech and they are promising her that they have found Percy's soulmate. Just one small tiny problem, Percy is already in a relationship, and they will be moving into together very soon. 

However Percy has been having a few doubts, even if she isn't quite ready to admit them out loud, and knows she will always regret if she doesn't meet the person, this computer has designated her soul mate. 

Needless to say, who Percy meets on this look see at her potential future partner, isn't quite what she thought, and her life is thrown into turmoil as a result. 

There are quite a few people that Percy could be sharing her happy ever after with, but you are kept guessing right until the end. 

There is a lovely voice to this book, and you really get to know Percy and her friends, family and colleagues. She doesn't have the world's most exciting job, but she did have one of that incredibly rare species, a boss that really appreciates you. 

There is plenty in Just Haven't Met You Yet to keep you entertained, including a Michael Buble obsessed character. Keep an eye out for a poem about Buble in the book, which will definitely have you laughing. 

Thank you to Netgalley and Quercus for this review copy. This was my honest opinion.
