Overview

Two wrongs don’t make a right, but they just might make a perfect match…

Nick Garret is flypaper for females, and he likes it that way. Women stick for a while, and when it’s over they fly away. So does he. Then one rain-slick night a young woman steps in front of his pickup truck, and his jaded, cynical life takes a sharp swerve toward trouble.

Calliope did the only thing she could think to get Nick to steer his truck—and his life—in a new direction. Banished from the Fae realm for granting a wish gone bad, her punishment is an impossible task; redeem the unredeemable Nick Garret. If she fails to help him pair three couples in everlasting bliss, he’s doomed to never experience real love. And she will share his fate—as a mortal.

Nick can’t decide if this charming, exasperating woman is a dream come true, or a saucy, sexy nightmare sent to drive him insane. Yet something about her makes him want to rise to her challenge. He’ll do anything to make her stick around a while.

Besides, how much trouble can one half-naked, seemingly wingless faerie be?

    A delightful surprise! Excellent book!

    I managed to snag this one while it was free, and honestly wasn't expecting much out of it (the last few free books I have read have been awful). But I found myself in love with this book, wishing that it would not end! The plot was well planned and the characters were compelling. The details made me feel swept up in the story. Sometimes you read a book and think "Oh, how am I going to get through the next 50 pages?" That was NOT this book! At one point, I looked down at the page count on my nook and was extremely surprised to see I was at 250 pages and that half of the book had already flown by without me noticing, I was enjoying it so much. (I was also a little upset because, as I said earlier, I did not want the book to end.) I would definitely recommend this book. It's funny, endearing, and engaging - and with a little bit of pg-13 romance for good measure. An absolute delight!

    The Matchmakers

    I would classify 'The Matchmakers' as a new guilty pleasure, not that there is anything guilty about it, but it was a sweet (albeit predictable) love story. Some people would classify this as a paranormal romance, but I think (even though there were Fae and magic) it would be more romance than pnr, just my opinion of course. I thought that the transition for Nick was a realistic one, reluctant to reluctantly smitten to love. I think that was why Cali was assigned to him to open him up before he forever shut down. Anyway, it was a good story and worth a read.
