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…

Excerpt:

Personal Concierge, to start ASAP (Boston Area)

I am a successful businessman looking for a wife. Due to a busy career and lack of energy or interest to devote to the process, I am seeking someone to assist me in my search. I am outsourcing the entire process, job to start immediately.

The perfect candidate will be assertive, with excellent computer skills and a knack for reading people. She—I am only seeking women to fill this position—will be expected to:

 

  • Meet me, get to know me. Spend a week or so in my company to find out my interests, what makes me tick. During this time she will come to understand the type of woman I expect to fall in love with;
  • Do all searching activities on my behalf including online, in real life, on social media, networking, and so on;
  • Once possible matches are identified, provide me with pictures and, upon my approval, arrange dates for us to meet.

 

I am attractive and financially secure. I do not have trouble finding women who are interested in me. It is finding women that I deem interesting beyond the physical that is the challenge.

While this job can be done at home, I’d prefer that several hours a week be spent in my company in order to keep a firm handle on what I expect in a love interest. I will have private space available in both my home and office for the right person to work.

Income will be determined initially by the experiences the candidate brings to this project. Additional income will depend on the quality of women found to date me as well as how far the relationship(s) progresses—both emotionally and physically. We can discuss a specific payment schedule during the interview process.

Serious inquiries only.

Jill’s Review

Miss Match by Laurelin McGee was a fun, sexy modern matchmaking tale.

Andrea is a bit in denial that she is just not getting another job right now and that her money is drying up As in bills are due and times are a getting desperate. Her roommate/sister points out an ad for a job she thinks Andrea seriously needs to consider – Personal Concierge. Or in other words a fancy shmancy title for Matchmaker to a successful businessman who is too busy to go out looking for his own wife, but has a very precise and narrow-minded view of what he wants and likes. (Can you tell what I think of his plan?) Andrea’s sister thinks that she has just the right skills for this job. A certain knack for observing people and being able to profile them perfectly, that will be the perfectmatch with this position. Andrea isn’t sold, and after interviewing turns the job down. But Blake doesn’t take her rejection so easily. And makes sure that she is the one for the job.

Miss Match is a fun, quick read that was just thoroughly enjoyable. The story and writing flowed smoothly and effortlessly. The chemistry between Blake and Andrea was off the charts. I loved watching their unconventional relationship develop. I enjoyed seeing how it just perplexed them, that whole – colleagues to friends to can it be more? – is always so much fun to watch. Miss Match just made me smile!

I received a complimentary copy of Miss Match in exchange for my honest review.
