Summary:
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…

MY REVIEW

Miss Match is the first book for Laurelin Paige and Kayti McGee; together. They reinvent a typical love story, giving it humour and quirkiness that will you have you laughing loudly, more times then not.

Miss Match introduces the reader into the world of match making, where we are taken on a journey to find Blake Donavon; hot, sexy and surprisingly insecure, a wife. And by wife I mean a cardboard cutout of a woman that stands there, looks pretty and attends to all his needs as he sees fit.

Arrogant much?

After his own search appears to be unsuccessful, Blake decides to hire his own ‘Match Maker’.And, this is how we meet Andrea Dawson. Andrea is broke and desperate for a new job, disgusted that she even has to attend the interview. Andrea convinces herself it is better if she reminds her self of the bigger picture – money

As we witness the relationship between Blake and Andrea go from professional, to awkward, to tense and then somewhat familiar. Laurelin McGee are simultaneously showing off their writing skills. As they effectively show off both Blake and Andrea’s personalities, they give their characters dimension and depth. Through the magnificently written inner dialogue we observe the uncertainties, feelings and insecurities that threaten to jeopardise any chances of a ‘Happy Ever After.’

As Blake and Andrea veer off the original path, will it lead them where their supposed to be… together??
