Blog Tour ARC Review: Miss Match by Laurelin McGee

Title: Miss Match
Author: Laurelin McGee
Publisher: St. Martin's Press
Release DateJune 30, 2015

Welcome to the sexy, crazy, wildly unpredictable world of modern matchmaking, where fixing up strangers is part of the job—but falling in love is an occupational hazard…

He's The Perfect Catch.

Blake Donovan is tall, handsome, rich, and successful—so why would a guy like him need a matchmaker? Andrea Dawson has no idea, but a job is a job. After being blackballed from a career in marketing, Andrea agreed to use her unique profiling skills to play matchmaker out of pure desperation. But when she meets her highly eligible—and particular—first client face to face, she wonders what she’s gotten herself into…

Is She His Perfect Match?

Blake knows exactly the kind of woman he’s looking for—and it’s the total opposite of Andrea. Though smart and undeniably sexy, she is simply too headstrong for a man who’s used to being in charge. Still, Blake’s blood pressure rises whenever she’s near him. How can he explain the smoldering attraction that sizzles between them? And how can Andrea deny she’s feeling it, too? Maybe, just maybe, they’ve finally met their match…

Miss Match reminds me of those funny romcom movies with a jackass hero and a down on her luck quirky heroine.

Blake Donovan, a narcissist, control freak and misogynist pig of a millionaire is looking for a wife. And he hired someone to search the perfect bride for him. 

Andrea Dawson, a woman with the worst luck in finding a job after leaving her last sleazy boss. I'm fascinated with Andrea's special skills in reading people, which make her such an asset to her last boss and currently to Blake. 

Andrea hates that she drop so low as to accept the job offer, but what choice does she has? However, even if Andrea scouting for suitable dates was successful, she still had one very huge problem: How would she make Blake Donovan suitable for dating?

Because the MAN himself is horrible and he portrayed himself as one of the most boring guy on earth. He said he only listen to NPR, BBC and classical music. He hates pet and he works all the damn time. Though, he can be incredibly sexy as long as his mouth was closed.

When I started on Miss Match, I need some time to warm up to the Andrea because her sense of humor is all over the place, like I can't get a read on her character. But once I get to know her better I'm intrigue with her skill and her past employment that lead to her being jobless for months. 

As for the douche Blake Donovan, what can I say, jackass usually fascinate me. He is so overbearing and a total pig towards woman in general. I can't wait to see Andrea bring him to his knees. I like the little things about him that was reveal later on. I also wanted to know what make him this way and why he wanted to make himself look so stuffy and unreachable. Their initial get-to-know each other was hilarious even though I wanted to punch Blake every single time he talk.

I wish we can delve more into Blake's history and his childhood for us to know why he act in such a way. And I would love to see more of Blake and Andrea together as a couple. The ending was a great way to wrap things up, but I just hope it was not that abrupt.

Miss Match is recommended of romantic comedy lover to will enjoy reading some fun sparring between the hero and the heroine and light on drama.
