Welcome to the sexy, crazy, wildly unpredictable world of modern matchmaking, where fixing up strangers is part of the job—but falling in love is an occupational hazard…
He's The Perfect Catch.
Blake Donovan is tall, handsome, rich, and successful—so why would a guy like him need a matchmaker? Andrea Dawson has no idea, but a job is a job. After being blackballed from a career in marketing, Andrea agreed to use her unique profiling skills to play matchmaker out of pure desperation. But when she meets her highly eligible—and particular—first client face to face, she wonders what she’s gotten herself into…
Is She His Perfect Match?
Blake knows exactly the kind of woman he’s looking for—and it’s the total opposite of Andrea. Though smart and undeniably sexy, she is simply too headstrong for a man who’s used to being in charge. Still, Blake’s blood pressure rises whenever she’s near him. How can he explain the smoldering attraction that sizzles between them? And how can Andrea deny she’s feeling it, too? Maybe, just maybe, they’ve finally met their match…
Oh, how I love a good match maker story! And Miss Match is a great one. I loved the back and forth head butting/banter between Andrea and Blake. Miss Match is told in dual narrative between Blake and Andrea. Sometimes it was hard to decide whose point of view it was, but I always caught on pretty quickly. Miss Match is a perfect summer read- funny, light and of course, a great romance.
Andrea is strong willed and very intuitive and perceptive. I really like people with those qualities, and Andrea is no exception. Or maybe I should call her Drea like Blake seemed hell bent on doing at first. (I thought that was super cute.) And along with the inevitable (oh come on, you so knew it was going to happen!) romance between her and Blake, we also get a really great sibling relationship with her and Lacey. I loved watching the siblings go at it back and forth. She reminded me of me and my sister sometimes.
If a romance is going to win me over, it needs to be endearing and have great chemistry. Banter and URST never hurt either. And Miss Match has all of those elements and more. I really liked Blake’s point of view, because it humanized him more to me. As soon as the book started out I thought he was a big jerk just like Andrea initially thought, but during his first voice passage, he broke down my resolve to dislike him a bit, and the more I heard from him the weaker my resolve got, until I was just a big ole puddle of a Blake fan.
Miss Match will be a great read for fans of match maker stories. It is a trope that never gets old with me. Yes, you know what is ultimately going to happen (maybe.) but so what that is half the fun for me in a feel good summer read. Miss Match was a really good time.
