Close Encounters, Inc

Between the three of us, we were probably connected to everyone in our year group and helped people meet the men or women of their dreams. But then one dream turned into a nightmare when I realised I'd fallen in love with the target…

Melissa Thinks: Running a matchmaking and makeover service is not as easy and fun as it sounds. Three best friends, Terry, Hailey, and Alyssa, pick out two people each month who they feel need a confidence boost. A full makeover is preformed and then a "coming out" party is held in order to show off the new look. They also service guys and girls who want an introduction into someone's life, someone they may have a crush on or have loved from afar. The most wanted man on campus? Troy: the arrogant jackass who Alyssa detests. In his mind these introductions are messing with fate. He'll do anything to get a rise out of Alyssa, including trying to ruin her business.

In the case of Close Encounters, Inc. everything seemed almost perfect. I loved the writing, the voice of Alyssa, the funny dialogue. Troy was adorably mean to Alyssa throughout the story and sparks between them flew in masses. Terry, Hailey, Gabe, and Nicole provided the perfect supporting characters with their own little side stories and strong characteristics. A tiny issue I had with the story was the plot. At times there seemed to be a little too much going on, or too many sub plots. fazzingaway wrote a wonderfully creative hate/love story that caught my attention just from the summary. Hopefully you'll be just as interested in delving into a great story such as this.
