Fun read!
An Unlikely Match (The Match Series Book 1) - Barbara Dunlop

An Unlikely Match by Barbara Dunlop is a fast paced read.  This book is well written with awesome characters.  Morgan and Amelia's story is a fun read because the characters are so hilarious.  There's a bit of drama and sizzle to keep the pages turning.  I enjoyed An Unlikely Match and look forward to reading more from Barbara Dunlop in the future.  An Unlikely Match is book 1 in the Match Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

Meeting His Match (Match Me #1) by Katee Robert
Meeting His Match (A Match Me Novel) (Entangled Lovestruck) - Katee Robert

Another really fun one from Entangled's Lovestruck imprint. Addison is a matchmaker that doesn't believe in second chances. She firmly believes that everyone has one soul mate and will never find another. Since hers has passes on, she's sworn off even trying to look for date for herself. Her friends sends her down south to try and find a match for her work-a-holic brother-in-law and things really get interesting. 

Addison finds herself falling, but refuses to believe it's true. A good chunk of the book is about her running from her feelings. I enjoy this to a certain extent because everyone does this a little, but it lasted a bit too long and was dragged out a little too far. The rest of Addison's parts in the book were fantastic. She really takes her job seriously - even bringing a dog (and then some) to Caine's house to make him more "approachable". The dog was adorable - I want one (or a dozen) now.

Caine is your typical work-a-holic. He sleeps in the office most nights just because it's easier than driving home between 18 hour work days. It's the family business so he feels like he owes it to his father to prove himself and be successful. He's written off having anything else until Addison throws how miserable and boring his life is right in his face.

There is a good dose of healthy confrontation in this book. It was refreshing to see such real-life emotions come into play and tempers flare during conversations. There is just enough meddling to help things move along a bit - with plenty of lecturing on staying out of the lives of others in response. A real life romance that really hit the spot.

A Match Made in Hell: 5 (The Dream Series)
A Match Made in Hell (Book 5 in The Dream Series) - Gladys Quintal A Match Made In Hell (The Dream Series #5) by Gladys Quintal

3 Stars

As further information comes to light about the curse, it is more important than ever to protect AJ. With the help of Seb Chloe and Moyra, Maria is chosen to keep both Cassie and her son safe, while Alexi still battles with his own demons over what he has done.

A Match Made in Hell is book 5 in The Dream Series and is a quick read. The story continues as AJ grows older and the path he must choose is getting closer. I felt this novella was more of an info dump than an action packed read. We were given details of Elizabeth’s motives, the way Maria was called as protector and about how AJ’s destiny is determined by the choices he makes by the time he is 18. I feel they were all essential details but kind of wish the book was full length and had a little more happen in it.

The writing was easy to read and flowed well, though I felt the end was very abrupt and left me turning the page expecting to find more, none was there and I wonder how many books will be in this series before we reach it’s conclusion.

The Proposal (A Perfect Match)
The Proposal - Lily Zante

Title: The Proposal
Author: Lily Zante
Published: L.Z.
Reviewed By: Arlena Dean
Series: A Perfect Match #1
Rating: 4
Review:

"The Proposal" by Lily Zante was a good romantic contemporary novel I found this novel a very enjoyable read that once you got into the novel you will be kept turning the pages to see what was going to happen next. I did like how this author put this together because from the title I was thinking something else entirely different than what was presented to the reader. The characters..Nadine, Zoe, Ethan, Sandra, and Melissa to name a few were found to be well developed and very captivating. If you are looking for a light romantic read with some twist you have come to the right place...for "The Proposal" will give it to you. Would I recommend? YES!

Review: The Perfect Match by Kristen Higgins
The Perfect Match (Blue Heron #2) - Kristan Higgins

THE PERFECT MATCH is book two in the Blue Heron series by Kristan Higgins and oooooh, she has hit the spot with this one! There are so many fabulous things about this book that I think it might fall into fangirl territory if I’m not careful but first things first, let’s talk about the amazing heroine, Honor Holland.

 

Honor Holland is the middle sister, the boring one, the one who handles the business (yuck!) side to their family wine business. She is thirty-five when her ob-gyn tells her that hey, you’re getting a little old and your eggs are shrivelling up! Oh, the horror! In a panicked mode, Honor decides to spring the life-changing question and asks her best friend and part-time partner in the sack, Brogan Cain to marry her. As you can expect, it comes tumbling down on her and poor Honor is left climbing out herself.

 

The hero is Tom Barlow, an English chap who is a professor and a little bit of a meanie. When Honor’s marriage proposal goes horribly wrong and later Brogan confesses to her that he is marrying her best friend, Dana, Honor drops down in attack mode and literally attacks her best friend in a bar. Not her brightest moment, but for Tom, who witnesses this all, he finds her feistiness attractive. They go on a date and well, it turns out that feistiness may not be a good thing.

 

There’s also a situation about Tom’s green card and also a little about marital fraud, but hey, that’s all speculation and it actually makes the book better if you can believe. I’ll let you decide for yourself.

 

As you can tell, I had an absolute blast reading this book! Higgins’ humor in this one is right on the money and had me crying because it was so damn funny. But laughter isn’t the only thing you’ll be experiencing in this book. There are plenty of suspenseful moments, plenty of jaw-dropping-holy-shit-did-Honor-really-do-that? moments and lots of I-want-to-strangle-Tom-and-Charlie moments as well. I got so involved in these character’s lives that I was feeling every single emotion they were.

 

Honor is an incredible heroine and possibly one of my favourite heroines this year. She shows such strength and courage and the things she experiences in this book are just dreadful, yet she handles it all fairly well. I just had an immediate liking to her character and hope that this continues on with the rest of the series.

 

If there is one downside to this book is that Tom’s revelation to this book is a little quick and a little too close to the end. Other than that, the only nitpicking I can think of is this:

Higgins, I want more detailed sex scenes.

 

You can’t give me a hotter-than-hell hero and do fade-to-black sex scenes! Gimme the goods! I want to see upside-down, hanging off the chandelier sex in the next book, :D

Love, your newest #1 fangirl.

 

THE PERFECT MATCH is Contemporary Romance at its best! Each page is filled with Higgins’ quick wit, hilarious antics and fun family drama. If you haven’t met the Hollands yet, then you are missing out in a huge way!
