This was such a cute Valentine’s Day buddy read! It wasn’t on my radar and it’s always fun to find something new.
Matchmaker Cassandra Reynolds finds herself in need of a match of her own so she has a plus one to her estranged father’s wedding. Enter Luke Dawson, who takes it upon himself to do the matchmaking. With a great mix of romance and family drama, there’s never a dull moment.
I’m picky with romance. It’s definitely a mood thing for me. I’m glad I gave this one a try because I enjoyed it a lot more than I expected not being in the zone for this genre at the moment. I’m glad that this is a series for when I am looking for a romance read sometime in the future. The writing style, especially with an overuse of euphemisms and cliches, wasn’t my favorite, but the plot made up for a lot of it.
Likes & Dislikes:
What I liked:
- A cute plot.
- I enjoyed the storyline with Cassie and her father.
What I didn’t like:
- Sappy writing for the most part. It just isn’t my thing.
- I wanted to like Luke but I didn’t.
This was a buddy read with my friend Sophie from the Global Book Nook Discord server!
