Love is a battlefield for a quirky matchmaker and the cocky football star who hires her to find him a wife.

As the owner of Perfect Pairings matchmaking service, Maddie McRae earns her living helping others fall in love. Dubbed the Wedding Whisperer due to her success getting couples down the aisle, the sweet Southern belle knows that the foundation of wedded bliss is built on similarities: opposites might attract, but they don’t stay together.

Which is why she’s holding out for her own Prince Charming, a perfect gentleman she believes will arrive one day and sweep her off her feet with his devotion, kindness, and charm.

Enter Mason Spark.

Rude, arrogant, and notoriously allergic to monogamy, the hottest quarterback in the NFL is Maddie’s polar opposite. He’s also her new client. Her gorgeous, infuriating new client who’s paying her an outrageous sum of money to find him a wife. With his multi-million dollar contract on the line due to his behavior on and off the field, bad boy Mason is willing to pretend to settle down.

But when he starts to fall for the adorkable matchmaker who can’t stand him, the playboy finds himself in the game of his life to keep something he never thought he’d lose—his heart. divider_line (1)Review:

So I went into this one after reading and loving Burn for You and Melt for You and right away decided I wasn’t a fan. There were a few things that just didn’t work for me:

  1. Four POVs…this was just unnecessary and distracting
  2. Over the top writing (I’m talking cheesy to the max)
  3. Only the last 25% of the book was enjoyable except for some cute flirty parts in the beginning

But, you might like this story if you enjoy:

-Harry Potter references
-tons of clichés
-Aura reading aunts who conspire with seemingly shady sports agents to set people up
-Angry, beastly men who think they don’t deserve love because of their past
-Matchmaking women who believe in HEAs but have blind spots when it comes to their own hearts
