Annabelle Granger wouldn't exactly call herself poised, polished, and sophisticated. But determined she is. Now that she's inherited her grandmother's matchmaking business, Perfect For You, she'll stop at nothing to make it a success.

She'll do whatever it takes to find a woman for Heath-no matter who that woman turns out to be.… (mais)

According to me a Prologue or the 1st Chapter of a book is THE reflection - SO it must capture my attention from page 1 I will continue a few more chapters to give the Book a fair chance to change my mind!

SO Herewith my review!



Prologue OR Chapter 1
I was sucked in from page one and could not stop reading, if you are looking for a fun CR well this is a great book to read and you do not need to read the series in sequence


Type of Characters and my choices according to pictures :

Relationship development & Chapter Development

Heath Champion is looking for a wife and has engaged a rival matchmaking service ("Power Matches" run by the ruthlessly perfect Portia Powers) Heath is looking to the "perfect" woman to complement his "perfect" life, Heath is only willing to meet the "candidates" initially for a 20 minute interview and insists that Annabelle be present for all the first meetings I found it surprising that more of the "candidates" did not reject *him* after the first 20 minute meeting. Of course none of the candidates is ever as perfect for Heath as Annabelle herself, but it takes him absolutely *forever* to figure this out.
To introduce him to likely candidates since he is just *too busy* with his work to look for a wife on his own. Annabelle goes after Heath's business with a vengeance, but cannot help taking a few jabs at his over-inflated ego.


Annabelle Granger inherited match-making service Annabelle Granger inherits her grandmother's match matching business ("Matches by Myrna") she changes the name to "Perfect for You" The key its success, she is charming heroine--smart, warm-hearted, vulnerable and fun-loving but rather hapless redhead--a chronic underachiever born into a family of super-achievers. She does agree to accompany Heath on his dates, I fell in love with Annabelle right off the bat.

The conversations are witty and humorous. Whether it is Annabelle and Heath, or any of the secondary characters speaking, there is no time that the reader does not want to read every word.


A few paragraphs / quotes → I loved
(Heath says at one point: "It's been seven years, Phoebe. Don't you think it's time we bury the hatchet?" To which Phoebe replies: "As long as the blade ends up in the back of your neck, I'm game.")

MATCH ME IF YOU CAN is a fine animated contemporary romance starring a delightful duo. What I loved about the book: the humor. Gee, -great humor!

I adored this book when I was in high school, but my tastes have definitely shifted now. Not so big on pure romance anymore. Plus, our culture has changed and there were several statements that would be considered offensive in a newly-published book. But I'm glad I tried out the whole audiobook thing to see how I enjoy it.

Entertaining read with several laugh out loud moments. Hardly any sex scenes, so definitely chick-lit not erotica.

Flaws? A bit too much on how pretty the men are. There's one scene that made me cringe, where all the women stare at their goregous men and salivate. The author makes fun of how men objectify women, and how women go out of their way to lose weight and fit the image they believe men want. But, at the same time, the men are objectified as well. It's realistic that the women, including the heroine, are portrayed as shallow, if not more so than their male counterparts.

It does delve into the world of sports...which I'm unfamiliar with and was a nice change of pace.
As well as matchmaking. We see both characters working, and it shows how their work makes them happy and defines them. Considering we spend 90% of our time at work - this worked very well. Too often romance novelists skip over this bit.

Supporting characters were well developed and provided humorous comic relief at times. Great dialogue and snappy banter.

The final conflict doesn't quite work. The heroine comes across as complete twit. And you want to shake the hero. It may have worked better if we stuck to the heroine's pov and not flipped to the heroes, not sure. Which is the other reason I couldn't give it four stars.

Other than that? A fun read. With more than one laugh out loud moment. And quite the page turner.
One of the better "chick-lit" contemporaries that I've read to date. ( )

La tercera es la vencida .

Había leído ya dos libros decepcionantes de esta autora y , erróneamente , ya la había encasillado como pésima . Por suerte ,probé este tercer libro y resultó ser el mejor chick-lit que leí en mi vida .

Los dos personajes principales son geniales y los secundarios también . Me morí de risa . La pareja esta del agente deportivo y la casamentera estilo Patti Stanger (pero más graciosa y queribleque la real) , es imperdible . ( )
