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…

Rating: A+ – Devoured

What I Liked

The epitome of a contemporary romance. I can’t help but fall in love with Miss Match. This book gave me what I wanted in a contemporary romance book: witty dialogues (check), laugh-out-loud moments (check) and “opposites attract” storyline  (check). I had a blast reading this book and I thoroughly devoured every word (except for the x-rated scenes).

The female Sherlock Holmes. Insert question mark on that. Andrea has a talent in reading people and she’s pretty damn good at it. Actually, I wish I have that kind of skill. She actually reminds me a bit of Sherlock Holmes. Her mad skill in observing people is highly excellent. I just absolutely love her because she’s funny, a bit quirky and sassy.

The chemistry. At first, I was hesitant with the dual POV (especially with Blake’s) but the author made sure to write Miss Match very well. She was able to make me feel the chemistry right through the pages.

What I Didn’t Like

Quite predictable. I’m not gonna lie. This book was slightly predictable but I’m telling you, it would be hard for anyone who reads books from the same genre to not love this book.

Blake. Blake is a rich, cocky, pompous jerk and he just has to be successful and devilishly good-looking. I have nothing major to complain on Blake because without his regal ass in the story line, this book would have ended up differently. And honestly, I didn’t care much of his rude attitude that much.

To sum it all up, Miss Match is a hilarious, sexy, fantastic read. This book is undoubtedly the latest newcomer to my favorite’s list.
