    This was my first book by Marilyn Brant and won't be my last! It

    This was my first book by Marilyn Brant and won't be my last! It was fun and her writing is very easy to read. I enjoyed that she wrote in third person so you got to see both Beth and Will's points of view. As mentioned in the summary above, Will and Beth both submitted a profile on a dating website to meet someone for ulterior motives. They both lied; however, Beth pretended to be someone she wasn't in order to use her match as research and Will failed to mention he was only looking for someone in order to win a bet with his cousin. This relationship seemed to be doomed to fail from the beginning.

    At first I wasn't sure I liked Will. Marilyn did a great job of portraying him in a way that prevented the reader to automatically fall for him. That is what he did though - he kept everyone outside his wall of emotion and detached so he wouldn't get hurt. Beth on the other hand had a tough time keeping her emotions in check. She was serious about her research, but she started falling for Will even though she knew she shouldn't take things futher becasue of her dishonesty. Beth also seems to be the only woman who is able to break down Will's walls and manages to pierce his heart, without realizing it. Once Will finds out that Beth lied to him, we finally start to see some real emotion from Will. It is amazing how you can draw closer to someone even when they are angry! He was no longer the cool, logical doctor only worried about his clinic and helping people in order to fight the system that he was subjected to growing up.

    We all try to anticipate how a story is going to go based on what we have read in past books. We know the hero and heroine will get together in the end in a romance novel, but it is the getting there that we love to read about. Pride, Prejudice and the Perfect Match did not disappoint in the "getting there" part. There were some surprises that happened along the way and when I thought they would forgive one another, well, they didn't! I was mentally urging Will and Beth to cut the crap and go to the other one (because I knew how they both felt about the other one - the fun part about being in both characters' heads), but they didn't listen. Stubborn characters!

    I thought Marilyn did a fabulous job with the story and the characters. I enjoyed the sweet romance that formed between the characters and loved Will's cousin Bingley and Beth's best friend Jane. I sure hope Marilyn writes a book about them! They would be so much fun to read about. If you are looking for a fun, contemporary read (whether or not you have read Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice) that is hard to put down, I highly recommend Pride, Prejudice and the Perfect Match!

    Loved it

    Will and Elizabeth's story is so much fun to read. It starts with both of them joining a internet dating service. Both having totally different reasons for joining than to find a love match. Needless to say, nothing turns out as planned. Their story really touch your heart.
