When New York matchmaker Addison St. Claire is tasked with matching her best
friend's new brother-in-law, she almost refuses. But the sexy southern CEO turns out to be a challenge she can't resist, because if anyone needs to meet his soul mate, it's this man. And if matching him with someone else removes the temptation of being near him? Even better.
The last thing Caine McNeill needs is a matchmaker—especially a gorgeous redhead who spouts nonsense about soul mates, critiques what he drives and how he dresses, buys him a dog, and pesters him about a million little things he couldn't care less about. It's a crying shame he has to keep his hands off because chemistry like what's flaring between them ought to be explored. Thoroughly.
And so the battle begins. Addison is determined to stick to her plan of setting him up on dates with other women, and Caine is equally determined to ignore these women and seduce her.
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.
