Review: READY TO WED by Cindi Madsen

In Ready To Wed by Cindi Madsen, Dakota Halifax had everything going for her: her business as a wedding planner is growing, her wedding advice column in a local paper has a huge following, and she’s about to get married herself.  But then her fiance dumps her at the altar and suddenly Dakota is not sure about love or even how she is going to work through her heart ache while planning other people’s weddings.  The only bright spot in Dakota’s life is that her childhood BFF, Brendan West is back in town. Except Brendan has grown up into a very sexy man and she’s definitely feeling things she shouldn’t feel for her best guy friend. 

Dakota is a great character to get to know.  Her snarky sense of humor and retelling of wedding disasters had me laughing.  Her color code alert system for bridezilla’s is priceless.  I loved how Dakota dealt with every curve that was thrown at her and did it with her head held high.

Review: A MATCHLESS ROMANCE by Christi Barth

Why? Why have I waited this long to read a book in the Aisle Bound Series by Christi Barth? I love sexy, sassy contemporary romance books and A Matchless Romance is the definition of that. Sassy heroine, a geeky hero and a happy ever after (several in fact). A Matchless Romance is the fourth book in the Aisle Bound Series, but the first one I have read. It can easily be read as a standalone, but I so badly want to go back and read all the other books now to get to know the other characters. I love it when a book in a series does that!

In this story Tabitha is running a matchmaking business and Drew is a video game designer looking for some help interacting with women, since he royally offended his female boss and needs to be able to nail some upcoming marketing interviews. From their first encounter, Tabitha and Drew hit it off. Their friendly demeanor and chemistry was so fun to watch. Christi brings such humor to both of these characters in very different ways. Drew takes everything very literal and Tabitha gets such a kick out of it.

Review: THE MUTT AND THE MATCHMAKER by JB Lynn

The Mutt and the Matchmaker by JB Lynn is a must read for any of her Confessions of a Neurotic Hitwoman fans. The awesome Armani from the Hitwoman series is the Matchmaker in this series and as you can imagine, comes with a lot of humor. If you have not read the Hitwoman series, no worries, as it is not required to read The Mutt and the Matchmaker.

In The Mutt and the Matchmaker, we meet  Tom and Jane, the first couple that Armani sets up. When I started reading, I thought it was too nice of  story and the mystery was easily solved. However, I love JB’s books, so I kept reading. I was glad I did because things did turn out the way I thought. JB takes us on quite a little mystery!
