Description from Goodreads:
Goaded by her competition, matchmaker Jane Wright makes a very public bet that she can find the “perfect” match for Manhattan’s hottest confirmed bachelor—sexy-as-sin bartender Charlie Goodman. Unfortunately, Charlie is also Jane’s ex-lover, a man she broke up with on a cocktail napkin. With her company on the line, Jane has no choice but to convince the man of her most impractical dreams to dive back into the dating pool.
Charlie doesn’t want to see Jane’s business fail. He just wants a little revenge. Determined to prove to Jane that chemistry always beats compatibility algorithms, he plans to drive her crazy with desire…then walk away. And his plan is working. A little too well, actually. Because even as Jane scrambles to calculate Charlie’s best match, the heat building between them combusts. But Charlie’s been so busy outsmarting Cupid that he hasn’t noticed he’s the naughty cherub’s next target…
Miss Riki’s Review:
This book had me completely engaged from page one right through every adorable moment and up to the swoon-worthy final scene. Maggie Kelley has a wonderful, lighthearted writing style that really captures everything I love about Entangled’s Lovestruck Line.
This is a wonderful story of reunited lovers, with a little bit of an enemies-to-lovers feel to it. (Both tropes I adore and both tropes that work SO well in this book). After all, Jane dumped Charlie Goodman on a cocktail napkin. She might very well be irresistible, but those are grounds for a serious grudge. Luckily, Charlie is smitten with Jane even after her moment of indecision, and thanks to some pretty incredible chemistry between the two of them, he agrees to go along with her crazy scheme to save her business and reputation. And what a fun ride it is!
These two characters are endearing and sweet, with an incredible compatibility. I mean, you really WANT these characters to end up together. Charlie is sexy as can be and lives up to his reputation as the hottest bachelor in town. Luckily, Jane is smart mouthed and quick on her feet, and makes a worthy match for him. She’s the type of girl you want for your best friend. When the two of them get together, in moments of weakness and passion, things really heat up on the page.
And oh! That ending! Talk about grand gestures! I totally swooned over those last few scenes and was sorry to see the book end.
The pacing is quick and the dialogue is laugh-out-loud funny at times. I couldn’t put this book down. I highly recommend it. *Oh, and can I vote for a book in this series featuring the brother Nick?? Pretty please??
