    Mismatch is a sassy romantic comedy that has plenty of humor and steamy romance that will keep the reader thoroughly entertained.

    Mismatch is the second book in the Love Match series that picks up where Game, Set, Match (book 1) left off, but this book focuses on Jessica Stanton. Set in trendy LA and written in the third person narrative, author Nana Malone weaves an engaging tale that follows the introduction and relationship development of two very different people: Jessica Stanton and Eli Marks.

    Jessica Stanton is an artist / entertainment manager who is trying to build up her struggling art gallery and artist management company. She's too focused on her businesses to go looking for love.

    Eli Marks is an expert art authenticator who consults for the FBI on art forgery cases. Between his work and keeping Samson, his twin artist brother in recovery and walking the straight path, he doesn't have time for love.

    When Jessica goes to a nightclub to check out Samson's show and recruit him for her artist management company, she meets Eli, who is not her usual type of guy: he is too conservative, she likes bad boys with tats and piercings. Instant mutual attraction leads to an intended one night stand that becomes anything but that, turning this mismatched couple's world upside down with a chance of finding true love!

    This was such a fun story to read! Author Nana Malone weaves a story that has sassy humor, mystery and hot sex and passionate romance scenes interwoven into one heck of an entertaining read. Jessica and Eli are very different people, a mismatch that find themselves undeniably attracted to each other. Jessica is a reformed misfit whose love of tats, piercings and colored wigs had her marching to her own beat. Eli is a conservative and serious type of guy that has always been his twin brother's protector. Both have secrets and walls that they've never let anyone breakdown, that is until they meet each other. With a high profile case of art forgeries and deception comes threats ... can Eli protect his brother and still find true love with Jessica?

    I loved both Jessica and Eli, their chemistry was palpable and their humorous dialogue and sensual interactions kept me engaged and wanting more! Jessica is a saucy, in-your-face, tell-it-like-it-is woman, I found myself immediately liking her. As for Eli, he's simply yummy .... hot, hot, hot! I loved the development of their relationship, and I really enjoyed how the storyline alternated between their perspectives. It is so easy to get caught up in their story and the art forgery case, that before you know it the story ends leaving you wanting more!

    With a quirky realistic cast of characters who will keep you in stitches with their dialogue and interactions; a richly detailed setting and description of the art industry; and an engaging storyline that mixes romance and mystery; Mismatch is an enjoyable contemporary romantic comedy that will put a smile on your face.

    Even though I did not read the first book in the series, I feel that Mismatch can be a stand alone read, but to do it justice read the books in order. I definitely will go back and read the first book, and I look forward to reading more books from this author. If you want a fast paced, fun, sassy, humorous and sexy story, then Mismatch is a must read, you won't be disappointed.
