Woo Hoo!! It’s release day!! Congrats Laurelin
Synopsis: 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…
Review: Okay so the blurb had my interest piqued, the first page had me drawn in… who advertises for a personal assistant to find them a wife…crazy right?!?!! Well it definitely was. I loved that we got dual POV as well; so you knew what each person was thinking, but let me tell you that didn’t make this any less frustrating.
Blake was an uptight ass on the surface but also an undercover pinball nerd. He was more worried about how he and his potential wife-to-be would be portrayed on the outside to the business world then actually finding someone to really fall in love with. Like this dude had a list of what the perfect woman for him should be. He is too busy to look for a woman and get to know her he’d rather leave that up to someone else and he just show up for the dates.
Andrea was a bit difficult for me to like at first, not because she was whiney or bitchy but because she was so darn confusing. For someone who was in desperate need of work and had such a hard time finding a job, she was flat-out refusing to work for this guy because she thought it was ridiculous. Let me tell you what, if some rich hot guy was willing to pay me and obscene salary to find him a wife…then slap my ass and call me Patti Stanger because I’m about to be a match-making fool. I also didn’t understand her “profiling skills” if she was such a great profiler then wouldn’t she have been able to pick up on Blake’s BS? I don’t know I just didn’t get that part about her. I also wish it would’ve went more into the thing about her and her former boss.
Overall the book was good. I loved their banter back and forth and the constant denial of what they were feeling for each other. But that is also what makes it so frustrating to read!! Your all like “HOOK UP ALREADY” or ” NOOOOO” because there are so many times when words and actions are misunderstood. So for this newbie I am giving it 4 stars. I really like this author and the way she writes.
