About the book: Billionaire CEO Luke Ryder doesn’t want to hire his best friend, Brooke, as his matchmaker. Not when he’s been in love with her for eight years. Too bad she doesn’t see him as relationship material and is engaged to another man. If the matchmaking company she works for closes, Brooke is out of a job, and Luke is out a best friend. There will be nothing stopping her from moving to Italy with her fiancé. And Luke isn’t about to let that happen.
Brooke’s dream career may be crumbling, and she will do anything to keep Toujour in the black. Even recruit Luke, America’s favorite bachelor, as her next client. Surely his perfect smile and swollen bank account will send clients swarming to their doors. But when matching up Luke works a little too well, Brooke wonders if she’s with the right man. Maybe she should finally forget Luke’s playboy image and admit he’s changed. All Brooke has to decide is if she’s willing to risk her heart.
My review: This book is cute. I liked Brooke and Luke in Meet Your Match and I wondered just what would happen to them as they got older. I loved that Brooke was persistent enough to get her dream job, and that she was living the life she really wanted to live. With the exception of one thing her life seemed perfect! I didn't like her fiance at all. He seemed to be kind of a jerk to me.
I liked Luke too. He has had a hard time with his dad dying, and his life is far from ideal. But I like the way he fights to get back everything that he almost lost, including Brooke. I really liked the way that they work together, even though Brooke is engaged, they spend tons of time together and know pretty much just what the other would be doing and thinking.
This is a cute story. I wouldn't really have my teen read it, because there are definitely adult themes going on in this one. That being said, it's basically clean, although there is a nude painting scene near the end.
I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
