Match Maker

Author: Karey White

Genre: adult contemporary clean romance

(Summary contains spoilers if you have not yet read book #1 The Husband Maker) It’s been six months since Charlotte and Kyle broke up, and the Husband Maker strikes again. Kyle is officially engaged, while Charlotte is still nursing a broken heart. In an effort to get Charlotte out of her rut, she and her best friend decide it’s time for some good old-fashioned matchmaking. While Aleena arranges for Charlotte to meet up with a handsome Scottish tourist, Charlotte gets her two best friends together. But when sparks start to fly between Aleena and Angus, Charlotte is left feeling more alone that ever--at least until the charming Scotsman becomes more than just a safe, rebound guy and teaches her that maybe, just maybe, she can dare to open her heart again.

This review will will contain slight spoilers for Book 1. You can read my review of The Husband Maker here.

Ahh I loved this book just as much as the first one. It's so humorous and light and fluffy and helloooo this one has a Scottish love interest how can it not be good?  Charlotte is just coming off nursing her broken heart of breaking up with Kyle. But it's time for her to move on. What better way to move on than to test the waters with a visiting tourist. No harm there, because nothing more can happen since he'll be going back  to Scotland. Right? Except, this is Charlotte. And nothing is ever "just a fling" with Charlotte.

I love Charlotte. She is so fun and cute and easy to relate to and understand. She definitely has a lack of self-confidence because of her dating history. But she also can laugh at herself, and is learning how to move on. I definitely loved how she learned to take some time for herself and figure out what she wanted for her life. (And had the guts to visit Scotland by herself!) 

And Flynn was a total sweetheart. I mean, he was a pretty awesome guy. I mean, even though I couldn't see him and Charlotte together in a personal sense, I'm glad she found someone who was willing to just be a friend when she needed one, to see that she was broken inside even when no one else could.

I'm sure everyone that read book 1 was rooting for Charlotte and Angus to get together. (And if you weren't, who are you.) But he was really making me frustrated in this one. ANGUS. GET YO'SELF TOGETHER, SIR. Let's face it, he was really acting like a jerk. And while I can understand where he was coming from, at the same time, I couldn't.

At the risk of spoiling anything, I'm just going to say, this was so cute. It was fun and cute and fluffy. And I loved every bit of it.
