Jason is used to women falling at his feet, but relationships, with all their illogical demands, are not for him. So why does he find Emily so attractive? She's a highly unsuitable target for his s

MR AND MISCHIEF by author Kate Hewitt is from Harlequin Modern line.

Emily Wood is beautiful, clever, rich but single career girl with no interest in love and marriage. Yet she does matchmaking for her friends and co-workers to their happily-ever-after.

Her boss and childhood crush, Jason Kingsley appears immune to the fact that Emily has grown up now. But he feels the chemistry between them sizzle and is hurt when Emily to cover her attraction, teases him as boring.

In Jason’s view love hurt. It

The heroine Emily and the hero Jason grew up together, Jason was always the sensible and almost authoritative one whereas Emily, 12 years younger, was scatty and a bit of a dreamer. Emily has grown into quite a competent and successful career woman, something that surprised both of them, but still has an edge of spontaneity about her. She likes to matchmake and generally be involved in the lives of the people around her. Jason sees this as meddling and tries to warn her off doing it, of course E ...more

Recommends it for: Jane Austen fans who read HP
I enjoyed this modern take on Jane Austen's Emma. Being a bit of a stoic myself, I appreciate a hero who thinks the words "I love you" are useless because actions are more important than words.

Note: I hate the HP title, The Matchmaker Bride, for this book, especially since the heroine is not a bride during the book's action. The M&B Modern title Mr and Mischief is much cleverer and appropriate.

I loved the idea of M&B's based on classic literary romances and EMMA is probably my favourite Austen, so I obviously had to read Kate Hewitt‘s take on it. After a couple of false starts (tip – it’s THE MATCHMAKER BRIDE in the States, but MR AND MISCHIEF in the UK), I downloaded it onto my Kindle and ahhh, fun read.

I did wonder how this would read to someone not familiar with EMMA because really, I had the original novel and its characters and plot at the back of my mind more often than not,

This was an overall good book. There were definitely some slower parts and this was a little aggravating too, but I liked the plot and the good HEA. The characters were a little complex but stubborn and I definitely wanted to give them the heave-ho a few times. This was written well though. I'd say a good book but more for passing time and for something to read than one to search out.

This was a barely readable version of Emma. I was sort of offended on Emma's behalf.

Emily Wood has spent the last five year working her way from the ground up to become the youngest HR in the history of her company. Emily has become a good matchmaker since she’s not looking for a relationship. She happens to work for Jason Kingsley a friend of the family that she threw herself at when she was a teenager. After his rejecting she pushed him out of her mind as nothing more than a professional manner. When he shows up back in town however she can’t deny her attraction for him.

It's one of those books you should get at some charity shop or borrow from a friend, I'm afraid it was a disappointment for the most part. Emma is the immature woman she thinks she might be for most of the book, Jason is marginally better. There could have been more to this story of not knowing they both wanted love but refuse to acknowledge it, something to spice it up a little, give it more volume.

I should have suspected it would be one of those fluffy reads given the size of the book but for

This Mills and Boon story, which is based loosely on Jane Austen's Emma, would've been so much more enjoyable to read if Hewitt had focused more on the central characters of Emily and Jason and less on the secondary plot involving the naive Helen (based on Harriet Smith). While Austen's machinations and manipulations of her characters work wonderfully, this novel tries to clumsily replicate the social snub of Mr Elton in modern times and it just doesn't work. You just end up massively annoyed th ...more

First of all, I have no idea what 'harlequin' is. Somebody dropped this book into my hands and said, "Read it, it's really good" so I did. I thought it was a pretty good book, although that may just be a little bit biased since I've got a weak spot for the whole CEO sexy boss falls in love blah blah blah (all thanks to Christina Lauren's Beautiful Bastard , cuz goddamn it Bennet Ryan) but seriously. It was a decent experience for my first harlequin novel. No regrets.

A nice story. Emily and Jason don't "do" love, but love ends up on the agenda despite them.
