Series: Anyone But You Book #3
Author: Jennifer Shirk
Blurb: Matchmaking guru Kennedy Pepperdine’s life is perfect. Perfect job. Perfect friends. Perfect boyfriend. Except…when she gets trapped in an elevator with a handsome stranger, she accidentally confesses a secret: maybe her perfect boyfriend, Justin, isn’t so perfect for her after all. But a matchmaker should be able to successfully match herself, right? Thankfully, she’ll never see the handsome stranger again. Until she heads home with Justin for the holidays and learns that the sexy stranger is none other than Justin’s older brother, Matt.
Matt Ellis is trying to be on his best behavior for his mother—it is Christmas, after all. But when he recognizes the beautiful woman from the elevator—the one he hasn’t been able to stop thinking about for months—his best behavior is being held by a thread. Matt’s always sacrificed for his family, and nothing is more important than their happiness, but the more time he spends around Kennedy, the more he wonders if her supposed “right match” might just be the wrong brother.
Thoughts: If you’re looking for a feel-good romance, then this book might just fir the bill. With just a taste of forbidden romance – with Kennedy being attracted to one brother while engaged to another – it also still manages to maintain a innocent vibe to it that makes it extremely appealing. The book brought to mind the movie While You Were Sleeping with Sandra Bullock – it just had that sort of vibe to it for me. I really enjoyed reading this one. I did feel an occasional annoyance at the stressing about Kennedy’s matchmaking company and her bullheadedness about staying with the wrong guy, but in the end it comes to together in such a way that made it worth it.
Perfect feel-good romance with a great HEA!
