Tempest Day is an expert on helping others find love through her Connection Parties matchmaking service and the methods outlined in her bestselling book, Love Simplified. She’s one step away from becoming a celebrity matchmaker, the pinnacle of her career dreams.
But when a seemingly simple interview on the nation’s most popular daytime television show takes an ugly turn, Tempest is forced to admit a secret she’s carried for years: She’s never been in love. The fallout is immediate and severe. So severe that the only way to fix the damage is to use her own methods on a reality TV show.
Tempest soon discovers that love is anything but simple. The show and its cranky but handsome associate producer, Lance Moretti, challenges all that Tempest thought she knew about relationships, even her relationship with God. What starts as a desperate attempt to repair her reputation turns into Tempest’s biggest love connection ever.

A writer is challenged to take her own advice about falling in love in a reality show. How well does that work for her? This book was engaging, funny and a fun read! Tempest writes a book on her method of matching people up to make a love connection, but then admits on a talk show that she has never been in love. A reality show producer sets her up with various dates that according to her scale, she would be compatible with. The dates are amazingly different from each other. Does she finally fall in love? You'll have to read the book to find out, I wouldn't want to spoil that adventure for you. But the adventure will draw you in and pull you along with all the ups and downs Tempest goes through in the search for the perfect match. I was given a copy of this book for my honest review. This is an author I will be looking for more from!
I loved this book. I laughed so hard; it was a really enjoyable read. Tempest Day is a love expert who's never been in love. She is approached by producer Lance Moretti--time out; let me just say that like everyone else said, this guy is HOT. They don't make them like this in real life, do they? I sure haven't met one--where was I, Italian hottie Lance signs her to her very own reality show so she can fall in love. I really connected to the heroine because love is elusive and not everyone finds someone as sweet, and handsome, and irritating as the hero. I spent most the day yesterday reading this book--such a page turner. I couldn't wait for the romance to develop and the hero and heroine sparked every time they met. Loved that his was a Christian interracial romance, something that's fairly taboo in Christian publishing. Great pacing, and have I said how funny it was? The dates Tempest had to go on and with the men chosen for her on the show--it was just so funny. You will definitely enjoy this story.
