Imperfect Match by Melanie Harlow and Corinne Michaels | Audiobook Review
Narrated by Andi Arndt and Jason Clarke
Contemporary Romance/RomCom Standalone
I was having such a hard time focusing on books, so I grabbed one by two authors who I know never disappoint. And I was right! Melanie Harlow and Corinne Michaels brought their A-Game to Imperfect Match, and the friends-lovers romance is one I wholeheartedly recommend.
Willow is 32 and needs to get started on her life plan of taking over her mother’s matchmaking business and having a baby. But there are a few problems with this plan: She’s really not good at matchmaking, and she is single with no baby daddy prospects outside of the local sperm bank.
In order to prove herself able to take over her mother’s business, Willow took the challenge of fixing up her best friend and across-the-hall neighbor, Reid, and finding him his perfect match. She and Reid have been best friends for a long time, and they never even thought of crossing the line together, but her setting him up with other women, and him thinking of someone else getting her pregnant made them both realize that they had more feelings than they thought.
This couple was everything! Their friendship was wonderful and fun before it became more than friendship—then it got even better!
“Are you laughing at my erection?” he asks, his voice gravelly.
“I would never,” I say, putting a hand over my mouth.
“Good, because there is nothing funny about my dick. It is a very serious, very large, very important thing.”
I burst out laughing. “Is that so?”
There was a lot of funny banter and a really cute relationship, but there were serious, emotional moments and hurdles to get over as well. This is not an angst-free romance. It was the perfect blend of fun and angst to keep me listening into the night.
- I love a friends-to-lovers romance.
- They had such a great friendship! They were each other’s person before they really became that.
- I laughed out loud many times.
- The sexual chemistry was off the charts.
- Though this was a very happy, smiley book, there were some heavy moments that really made the book special.
- The beginning was a little slow.
You can never go wrong with Andi Arndt and Jason Clarke! Their friendship felt so real!
