Rating: 4.5 stars 

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…

It was inevitable that I would fall in love with Miss Match. Completely, utterly, undeniably in love. When starting the book I felt like it was going to be just another romcom where aloof asshole falls in love with the meek, virgin whose down on her luck. For the most part it kind of was like that. Minus the heroine being a virgin and meek: she was anything but. Andy's down on her luck with no job but what brings us to the predicament she lands herself in. Which is working for Blake Donovan as his matchmaker to find a wife. Only he's a huge asshole who wants a certain type of woman. Basically, Blake is a narcissistic prick. At least that's what Andy thinks.

It does take long to see that there be more Blake and vice versa. Andy is spunky, sarcastic, and intelligent. All the things Blake absolutely does NOT want in a woman. It's obviously the reason why Andy is so perfect for the job. Only, neither one of them expected to feel sexual feelings towards one another. When finding the perfect match for Blake is hopeless, Andy decides to take matters into her own hands, so to speak. It's then that they get complicated. Well...more complicated than doing the impossible and finding Blake a wife. 

I enjoyed how the story makes you want to fall in love. As the reader, you see early on what the characters do not. They know they have chemistry but the feelings go beyond the physical. That's exactly how falling in love. One minute your walking safely on the ground; the next you're falling. It's the most beautiful and pure feeling you could ever feel. I never once thought Blake was an asshole...sure the guy has asshole tendencies but for the most part, he's a good guy. 

The matchmaker storyline is great because first you have Andy, desperate for a job and then bam! She's doing something she'd rather not do but kind of has no choice since she needs the money. It's so sweet it makes me giddy. The meeting Blake part, not her being desperate for a job! I do admit that there were times when I felt Andy was over-dramatic. And not in a cute way; more annoying than anything. 

Overall, I enjoyed this and recommend it to all you hopeless romantics! It's a story that will make you feel good.
