Overview

It's been six months since Charlotte and Kyle broke up, and the Husband Maker strikes again. Kyle is officially engaged, while Charlotte is still nursing a broken heart.

In an effort to get Charlotte out of her rut, she and her best friend decide it's time for some good old-fashioned matchmaking. While Aleena arranges for Charlotte to meet up with a handsome Scottish tourist, Charlotte gets her two best friends together. But when sparks start to fly between Aleena and Angus, Charlotte is left feeling more alone that ever--at least until the charming Scotsman becomes more than just a safe, rebound guy and teaches her that maybe, just maybe, she can dare to open her heart again.

*** (may be spoilers this is book 2 in the series) *** I love it when a novel starts right where it left off. It makes me happy. This one is just six months after Charlotte's break up with Kyle, and it's a little heart wrenching at the beginning. Charlotte can't decide if she is ready for another stab at dating yet. She and Aleena go out to a restaurant where very little English is spoken, but Charlotte has her secret weapon, Aleena. She can talk to the waiters and order. The table next to them is having a hard time understanding, and Charlotte takes pity on them and has Aleena share her language expertise with them. They strike up a conversation and have a great time. Flynn, the Scottish hottie from dinner is in the U.S. visiting his brother for a few weeks. Aleena decides it's time for both of them to get back into the dating field. Charlotte decides that she wants to set Aleena up with her best friend Angus, and Aleena gets the phone number of the Scottish hottie from his brother and convinces Charlotte to call him. Charlotte calls Flynn and she agrees to be his tour guide while he is in the U.S. while his brother works. What to say about Flynn? Yummy, yummy Flynn. He is such a great guy. Charlotte and Flynn hit it off right away, and become quick friends while he is in the U.S. Aleena and Angus date turns out to be super fantastic as well. Charlotte seems to be happy, Aleena seems to be happy, and Angus seems to be happy. Then Charlotte and Will's birthday comes along. Seriously my heart exploded...just to be let down again. It's obvious that Charlotte and Angus love each other. Charlotte just doesn't seem to get the drift. She thought all was well with everyone. Flynn and Charlotte had kept contact when he went back to Scotland, and Aleena and Angus seemed to be going strong. Angus finally reveals his true feelings for Charlotte at her birthday party, and Charlotte runs away. Ugh, it was so frustrating on so many levels. Not only because I wanted them to get together, but Angus's timing was horrible. Charlotte runs away to Scotland to visit Flynn, and things don't quite turn out the way she or Flynn thought they would. When Charlotte returns she decides to tell Angus she loves him.....and then....AND THEN......Angus turns into a turd ;). Okay, not really, but in my mind he did. Although it left me dying to listen to the last book right away. This love story is so fabulous and frustrating at the same time. When I know a characters loves each other and they cannot seem to get the right timing, it's soooooo frustrating. On the flip side it makes it so I cannot put the book down. Which is fabulous. This is a great series, and I devoured it. Source: I bought this book on Itunes for myself. I was not compensated in any way for my review. These are my own PERSONAL thoughts on the book. Content: CLEAN! yay!

Did I enjoy this book: I did enjoy this book, but not as much as the first book, The Husband Maker.  It was a sweet story. It was quick and romantic-ish with a few squeal-worthy moments thrown in. But it is definitely a bridge book. You can tell it’s a means to an end — a second book in a trilogy. There’s nothing wrong with that. It just made the book a bit meh. With that said, I really like Charlotte. She’s a sweet girl who needs to find her match. I really want her to be happy. She deserves it. I really don’t like Angus in this book, which makes me sad. He isn’t really a friend of Charlotte’s. Flynn, on the other hand, is a great guy. I wish I could hear his accent. ;-) The descriptions of Scotland were wonderful. I’ve always wanted to visit Scotland, and this book makes me want to go there even more. I can’t wait to read book 3, The Wife Maker. I will be on the lookout for it because I must know how Charlotte’s story ends. This series has built in a way to make me want to find out how it resolves. Would I recommend it: Yes, I would recommend it. Definitely read book 1, The Husband Maker, first. Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange  for an honest review.

Poor Charlotte has kept her husband making streak alive. The characters feel real, and it's easy to lose yourself within their story. The Match Maker takes us to Scotland and back and leaves us anxiously awaiting more! It will be impossible to wait until Spring for the next book!  The ARC of The Match Maker by Karey White was kindly provided to me by the author for review. The opinions are my own.

Cliffhanger. It's the most dreaded word in all of book-dom. You read a book. Fall in love with the story and characters. You get to the end and then WHAM! The author pulls the rug out from under you. Don't you hate that? I too am one of those readers who loathes a cliffhanger but if we're being honest with each other sometimes it's just enough to keep you coming back for more right? For me, such is the case with The Match Maker. Charlotte's back and she's looking for love...again! Fresh off a six month mourning period after breaking up with Kyle Aldsworth she's ready to get back in the saddle. I was so sad to see Charlotte and Kyle part ways in The Husband Maker but I was excited to see what was to come for Charlotte. If you aren't familiar with this series the theme of the series is that Charlotte has a distinct reputation for creating husbands. Meaning after a relationship ends for her, the guys end up finding their true love shortly after and her track record is still intact when we catch up with Kyle and find him betrothed to Charlotte's best friend Angus' ex girlfriend Wyatt. (That was a mouth full!) How's that for a punch in the gut? Both you and your best friend break up with your signifs and they move on....with EACH OTHER! The best part is that Charlotte remains civil about the entire thing even when Kyle tries to place the blame on her for their split. I would have thrown hot coffee on the man for such heresy but Charlotte is the bigger person.  At the end of the first book in the series Charlotte met a handsome Scotsman while out at lunch and upon her friends insistent demand that she give him a chance we meet Flynn MacGruger. He's tall, he's charming and he has an accent! Blame it on my current obsession with Outlander but I was really digging Flynn simply because he was from Scotland! The two become friends while he's in town visiting and seem to hit it off. I loved that Charlotte was willing to stop over-analyzing her future and really started to understand that by not living in the moment she was creating most of her relationship problems. Flynn helps out a lot with her being able to let her hair down. Charlotte and Flynn had such great chemistry and an easy banter that felt natural. As far as I was concerned these two were IT! They were gonna get married and have lots of Scottish babies and live in a cottage on the Isle of Lewis, where Flynn is from. I got the biggest surprise when a known secondary character steps in during the bottom of the ninth and blows the lid off my Scottish fantasies and changed the landscape of the entire story. In a very juicy twist of fate, Charlotte has her eyes opened to something special that was under her nose the entire time.  The Match Maker is the exception to the "No Cliffhanger" Rule because even though I was left hanging, it was a VERY exciting ending to a plot twist I wasn't expecting. It's very hard to write a series that follows the main character and NOT have an abrupt ending (Anybody remember Twilight?) unless you write stories about the different characters within the series.  Even though things didn't turn out the way I had originally hoped going into this story, I was extremely pleased and excited to see this new direction White is taking us in. Once again White pens another delightful, yet clean, Romance with enough of a hearty story that you won't miss the steamier aspects in most adult novels. Definitely give these a try if you're looking for a "Guilt Free" story that will have you falling in love again and again.

WHAT AN INCREDIBLY FUN BOOK! I so LOVE this author! Charlotte's nickname is 'The Husband Maker' because every one she dates goes on to marry their very next girlfriend. Her record stands strong as Kyle has just announced his engagement. Now six months later Charlotte is ready to put herself out there again... And so she and her best friend make a pact to line each other up. Aleena wants Charlotte to go out with the Flynn, the tourist from Scotland that they just met. And Charlotte has promise Aleena to line her up with Angus, Charlotte's other best friend. Charlotte's heart is safe as Flynn will be going back home to Scotland soon. And Aleena and Angus seem to be hitting it off well. THEN Charlotte and Angus have a "moment" (LOVED this scene :) But Angus is dating Aleena...and Charlotte cannot be the cause of Aleena's heartbreak. So Charlotte plans a spur-of-the-moment trip to Scotland. It is in this peaceful, beautiful, small town that Charlotte realizes who her heart really truly belongs to. Now to make it all work out... A SWEET BOOK! SO WORTH YOUR TIME! CAN NOT WAIT FOR BOOK 3!

Charlotte has quite a reputation when it comes to men. It seems that once someone breaks up with her, they marry the next person they date. Unfortunately for Charlotte, this is the case with her most recent relationship as well. She thought this one was forever, but things didn't work out that way. Now Charlotte is trying to find a way to move on, and this includes jumping right back in to the dating pool. She also tries to match up two of her best friends. When everything seems to be working out though, Charlotte begins having second thoughts.  I was eager to read this book having read the first, and it did not disappoint. Charlotte is still very easy to relate to. I love that she's a very real, natural character. After finding out what has happened with her ex Kyle, she takes some time to be upset and depressed. Then she quickly takes good advice and gets back out there. She's a bit resistant, but she manages to find ways to move on. This makes the story feel like something that could happen to any of us. As things progress, Charlotte is forced to really ponder her life and how she perceives things.  Of course, the big plot point in this book is one I saw coming from the first book, so it was no surprise to me. However, it again felt very real. These characters have decided what is best for their lives, and sometimes trying to make the most of your current life makes things messy in other areas. I cannot wait to see how all of this is resolved in the next book. There is a definite open ending here. If you loved the first book you will love this one as well. And if you haven't read the first book, well what are you waiting for? Book provided for review.

Can a girl who has been called "the husband maker" ever find true love with Mr. Right, a perfect man that she can call her own? In the first book of The Husband Maker series, The Husband Maker, author Karey White introduces the reader to Charlotte, who is unlucky when it comes to love. Since high school, every guy that she has dated has gone on to marry the next girl they dated. She has been called "The Husband Maker" and questions why she can't find Mr. Right, and what has she done wrong. But when she meets Kyle Aldsworth, a Senator's son with political aspirations of his own, she is swept off her feet. Now in the second book of the series, The Match Maker, Charlotte's story picks up six month later after she has suffered a broken heart from Kyle. Charlotte tries to shake it off and move on by playing matchmaker for her best friends Aleena and Angus, only to find her own heart beating fast for a charming Scotsman tourist named Flynn! Can Charlotte open heart up once again in order to find true love? Will Flynn be "The Husband Maker's" Mr Right? The Match Maker is the second book in The Husband Maker series that continues to follow Charlotte's journey of finding true love. Author Karey White weaves a wonderful contemporary romance story set in San Francisco and Scotland, that is lighthearted, whimsical, and fun. It easily draws the reader into Charlotte's story as it unfolds with a nice mixture of clean romance, drama, and humor. I enjoyed following Charlotte's dating journey filled with dramatic ups and downs, and how she navigates her way through romances while discovering herself along the way. But alas, the reader is left wanting more with a cliffhanger ending, only to see what becomes of Charlotte and Flynn's relationship in the third book of the series, The Wife Maker, which will be published in the Spring of 2015! The Match Maker is a sweet romantic story that is a delightful read for all romance fans!

5 STARS I knew from the start of the book I would not like the ending. I was right I have to wait till the next book to have my ending. I did not want the book to end! I love the characters. I like Charlotte and want her to have a happy ever after. Flynn is a good friend to Charlotte he is from Scotland. Flynn makes me want to go to Scotland too. The setting for this book takes place around San Frisco area and in Scotland. Two different types of places. Charlotte gets the idea to set her best friend Angus up with another good friend Aleena. Angus has been Charlotte and Will's best friend since they were young. You can see right off the conflict that this will bring. The story is told well and holds your attention. You feel with Charlotte as she goes up and down trying to get over her broken heart again. This is full of drama, romance, characters that you want to know more about. It is also a clean read. I love the different settings in the book. Makes me want to discover them too. Only till Feb the next book comes out. After all the drama I sure hope things have a more peaceful ending. I will not feel bad if it comes out sooner. So yes I want to read more from Karey White in the future. I was given this ebook to read and in return I agreed to give a honest review of the Match Maker and be part of it's blog tour.

How It Made Me Feel:Man! What a reputation to have! To have your ex-boyfriends become engaged only months after your own relationship is dissolved. Then to become a match maker for your two closest friends? Ugh. How much can one broken heart take? No worries. There's a wonderful Scottish tourist to help things along.  Charlotte was a character that was extremely easy to relate to and one that was enjoyable to read. Every once in a while, you get a character that doesn't seem human. That wasn't the case with Charlotte. I loved watching her growth throughout the story and I also enjoyed seeing how other characters helped (or didn't help) her. She had roadblocks she had to navigate around and a heart to mend.  I can't help but admit I fell for the handsome Scottish tourist. :3 What?! He's Scottish and a gentleman. Flynn was a well rounded character who was a great introduction. Overall, it was a great read! Rating 4.5/5 Stars Why It Got That Rating:I loved the character development and the settings in the story. I also enjoyed the dialogue between characters and the way it led into a third book, however, the cliffhanger really got to me! Who Would I Recommend To:I would recommend to someone who is looking for a light and easy read but appreciates character growth, relationship adventures, and Scottish gentlemen!
