4 Star Review of The Right Fit by Daphne Dubois   Daphne Dubois is a new author to me. The Right Fit is a sports romance and is a sweet love story. Maxine Nicholls is struggling to come to terms with a cheating fiance and getting her life back on track. When her sister suggests rebound sex with a stranger, Maxine has no idea what is in store for her. Antony Laurent is a Toronto ice hockey player. When an accidentally meeting puts Maxine and Antony together she has no idea who he is. The chemistry between them ignites into a blaze of passion which neither expected. Will Antony and Maxine take a chance and in turn find that they are indeed The Right Fit? The Right Fit is a little slow at times but overall is a good read that I enjoyed.

Where do I even start? I LOVED this book! It was so much fun! And so REAL! Maxine is a big girl, but in a real way, not the way that some books do, where she's big, but in the scope of the real world, not really that big. And she has the same hang-ups and issues as those of us who are in real life big-girls. Then there's Antony. Oh I loved him so much! I loved his broken English, I love how much he adored Maxine in all her curviness. (And this might be the book that pushes me into finally getting to a hockey game to check out some hockey players). This was a page turner, I couldn't put it down! Even as I was sitting in meetings at work now that school is getting ready to start again, I was scrolling page by page on my phone when I was able to, because I had to stay in this story. Sex scenes were very steamy. Probably shouldn't have read those at work. I loved all the characters. Loved how Maxine's brother Westley turned out with his issues, and how he handled letting the person he liked know at the end. So much goodness in this story. A highly recommended book for me, and a new author I'll be hoping to read more by in the future!

Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. If you follow my reviews, you'll know I have a particular hatred of using the word NICE to describe a book. But sometimes, it's the only word my brain will use for a book and I can't spit any other word out. So, this is a NICE book. A GOOD book. Maxine sees Anthony when she's waiting for a blind date, who turns up but pretends he's not her date. They *literally* dump into each at a night club, when Maxine was dragged out by her sisters for some rebound sex. Anthony is a professional ice hockey player but Maxine doesn't have a clue who he is, so when she assumes he's a mechanic, he runs with it. When She finds out the truth, ALL the truth, can Maxine forgive him? Can she really allow herself to be happy?? This is, from what I can see, the first book by Dubois I've read; indeed, I *think* this is her first novel. And for the most part, I did enjoy it. And I'm stuck with that N word a the back of my throat! I don't mean this in a negative way, not at all, it's just I can't find any other word that projects my feelings bout this book and you all know, I'm all about sharing my book feelings! I liked the way the story flowed. We don't get all of Anthony's history in one go, you get hints and clues, and I put them altogether so wrong. You don't get all of Maxine's pain at her break up, the whole story comes in snippets along the way. Some of the dialogue is amusing, with Anthony's English not quite up to speed yet, but I liked that he flipped between English and French, and his English is portrayed in a way I remember the French students from school speaking. So, for the most part, I DID enjoy it, but I can't get past the *Nice Book* title. 3.5 stars, rounded up to 4 for the blog **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

A was given this ARC from NetGalley for an honesty review. Maxine has problems with her self image and self esteem but once she meets Antony you can see that little by little she starts to get her self confidence back. Her ex boyfriend really did a number on her and the way things ended with them just pushed her to doubt herself even more. Antony was able to show Maxine what it really means to love and also showed her that when you truly love someone you accept them as they are. I am so happy that they both finally got their HEA. A must read! I hope there is a story written about Marc. I would totally like to read about him.

Maxine has had one helluva year. She caught her boyfriend-should’ve-been-fiancé cheating – in their bed- with the lights on! Need I say more? Antony Laurent has had one helluva year. Rumor has it he’s about to be traded to the minors. What to do, what to do? How about hookup for a hot night so they can forget their trouble? One night of passion. One night of unforgettable- but-we-move-on-afterwards sex. Simple, right? Well if it were, there wouldn’t be a story now would there? One night stands don’t work out quite like that when both people are craving for a special connection – despite what they claim. But because they’re not trying to impress each other, things go so smoothly, and that’s exactly what they end up doing- connecting. And I don’t just mean external body parts. Quirkiness and lust combined created one interesting night that led to more interesting nights with some days thrown in. Mix in a protective brother, a gay best friend/roommate to that brother (who’s like another brother to Max), and a set of twin sisters who only have their looks in common (other than familial love, that is), and you have a cast of quirky, wonderfully charming characters who make just about every scene a laugh-out-loud moment. I got a little bothered by Maxine’s self-loathing and refusal to see the good in herself, but I understood. Sometimes, we are our own worst enemies and most critical judges. But, poor Antony. I felt his pain. There was nothing more he could do to express (verbally and by action) that he truly cared for her. I got kind of irritated by the length of time it took her to come around; but believe it or not, I still liked her. Maybe, I’m just not patient enough. Read the book, and let me know what you think. This is the fist book I’ve read by Dubois. I really like her writing style. She has a knack for dialogue and balancing out narrative, infusing just enough backstory to make the characters relatable without overdoing it. I want to know what happens with the other characters, especially Crosby and the TV show she was auditioning for. And Rose, dear, sweet, colorful, everybody-is-out-to-get-everybody-else Rose. I so want to meet the guy who falls for her. I’m definitely keeping up with Dubois! Won’t you join me?

I devoured this awesome book with its lively prose,humorous moments and lovely characters. Maxine and Toronto 's story was entertaining and sweet with a touch of deepness. I loved the book and look forward to reading more from the author. A fantastic book with a star rating of 4.3

3 stars I love a book about sports romance. And since the main character, Antony, is a Fresh speaking hockey player, I was in. Antony meets Max while out at a club. She doesn't know who he is and he was happy. She actually liked him for him. Not because he played hockey in Canada (where hockey is religion). Max is getting over her ex cheating on her and leaving (Max was a little creepy about her ex, it was kinda weird to me). So, Max sees this as an opportunity to move on. The story was sweet. I had mixed feelings about the French. I like when characters speak another language, but when there is no translations for it, I am lost as to why it needs to be there. At times, I almost googled things he was saying. It was driving me mad!! It was a sweet story, some parts were slow, and some were good. I would give it a solid 3 stars.

3.5 of 5 Stars NHL defenseman, Antony Laurent, meets, esthetician, Maxine Nicholls, who is on the rebound after catching her fiancé cheating on her. This sports romance takes place in Toronto and Florida. It is suitable for adult audience. I felt bad for Max. Her ex-fiancé, Johnny, really messed with her self-confidence. Anthony is much better for her. I love that he likes her the way she is. I like Anthony. He feels guilty for his brother’s accident. He’s worried about being sent down to the minors. He pushes himself hard to take care of his family. I appreciate that Max and Anthony both have issues they overcome in this novel. They have interesting friends and family. I like Carmine. He gave Max good advice and was a sweet man. I like how the characters evolved in the story, especially Marc toward the end of the novel. It took me a little while to get into this story. I enjoyed it more as I kept reading it. I like the nail polish names and their significance throughout the book. I also thought the name Max considered for her business clever. I enjoyed the ending. It made the story feel well concluded. I would like to see a sequel with Marc and Kayla. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

To get to the pie in the sky, a few missteps have to be taken. The Right Fit is a culmination of how finding Mr. Wrong can end up leading to Mr. Right. Maxine lost her heart to a playboy and was left with regret and sorrow. So when she decides to shake up her world and revitalize her love life, she gets more than she ever dreamed. A sexy sports star could be just the antidote to breathe new life into a wounded heart and give her that forever love she longs for. The Right Fit delivers, attitude with caliente.
