#1 New York Times bestselling author Tami Hoag mixes passion, politics, heartbreak, and humor in this powerful classic novel ignited by a man and woman whose desire for each other could lead them both to ruin.

They were totally wrong for each other. A romantic odd couple. It was clear at first sight. Bronwynn Prescott Pierson was a jet-setting socialite, a one-time fashion

My last two books were romantic-suspense that were really heavy on the suspense/terror element. I needed something lighter and with a touch of humor. Mismatch fit the bill to a T. I absolutely love these older romance books by Tami Hoag. They have H/h who are just wonderful. I know, the book is dated. The pop culture references are 25 years out of date. That doesn't bother me. What shines through is that this is a wonderful, sweet, humorous love story.

Bronwynn is a Boston heiress who found her f

Basically a bodice-ripper. Sex, sex, sex... after a while I just skipped those parts. The plot line was pretty basic, the characters stereotypical. I did actually finish it though - quick read, 2, maybe 3 days. I got a bunch of Tami Hoag books from a library sale, and I'm going through them chronologically by published date. Thank goodness she eventually moves on to big girl books!

This will be my last book by this author. This was disappointing as the dialog was predictable and not very interesting.

Since the last couple of books I've read have been thrillers and mysteries, I wanted something a little lighter. I also love Tami Hoag. Well, this is definitely lighter, but I have to say it is easy to tell that this is one of Ms. Hoag's early works. I have read some of her early books and enjoyed them, but they have all been mainly her mysteries and not Harlequin style romances. I found her at her "Thin Dark Line" stage of writing and have enjoyed all of her books since.
Having said all of that,

I'm a fan of romance books and i have read some of hoag's earlier works so i don't think thats why i couldn't get into this one but it was definitely not her best work. First of all the heroines name is godawful and i cringed every time i read it. The plot isn't too bad i especially liked the opening wedding scene. But the romance fell a little flat for me. The reader is constantly reminded how little the pair have in common except for this overwhelming attraction. Now im a pretty moder

This was a cute little story of a woman who right before she marries finds out her groom has been sleeping with her cousin. She goes through the wedding up to the point of "Does anybody know why these two" and then in front of all of their family and friends lets the secret loose. Then heads out to heal her hurt.

"Mismatch" by Tami Hoag was written in 1989, and it shows. Smoking again. I can't believe how much it offends me, but at least in this book, it also offends the girlfriend and the hero eventually stops. A cute read, but a big suspention of belief as the Heroine is rich, beautiful, tries to single handidly remodel a wreck of a house, makes a sheep a pet, and other silly stuff. She has 1 endearing quality, she misquotes cliche's. The hero is an overworked congressman. They meet cute, fall fast, ha ...more

A nice little romance story. This is the perfect odd couple. Bronwynn Prescott Pierson, a jet setting socialite and model, and Wade Grayson, a straight laced congressman, they meet in a chance meeting in Vermont. She was escaping her self botched wedding and he was under doctors orders to get some rest and relaxation. The attraction was mutual and would love develope from this powerful draw that keep them together?

This book got me on page one! I was so happy! It is not a very deep book. It is full of emotion, romance and SEX! (Who doesn't need a book like this every once in a while?) Tami Hoag is one of my favorite authors. She normally does suspense/mystery with romance mixed in, but occassionally it is just a good love story.

Unfortunately, the book was great until the last 4 pages. I had to give it 4/5. It is a great car trip or beach read.

Nice little chick light book to listen to on my way to work with a happily ever after ending! Wouldn't it be grand if life were really like that?
There were a few things that I found hard to believe -- like the mice and raccoons making their appearance in her house during daylight hours...and the fact that she could wean Wade off cigarettes without him noticing - but 'tis a fairy tale after all....

This book was fun. Two very different people but interesting each in their own way. Funny, sad, and witty, this book is exiting and romantic. There is a bit of mytery in there too. Very enjoyable.

Tami Hoagilta olen lukenut pari hyvää kirjaa, joten tavallaan tämä oli pettymys, koska en odottanut ihan näin perushömppäromantiikkaa. Kirja ei tarjonnut mitään yllätyksiä (yhyy), vaan oli tuttujuonikuvioista viihdettä.

I listened to this book and while I liked the characters and the action just fine. When I ran out of time with 30 minutes left to listen to the book, I wasn't all that worried to listen to the ending.

Though not one of my favorites, I enjoyed to story and characters alot. The premis is cute, of a woman that runs out on her wedding and meets the man down the road that thinks she just might be crazy. Antics ensue and they start a relationship. A good weekend read.

When I pick up a Tami Hoag novel, I'm looking for a bit of murder or suspense or something, not this hokey romantic drivel. Almost makes me want to up "50 shades" to two stars. Almost.

"The thoughts warmed her from inside out until she felt as soft and pliant as bread dough". Enough said.

I don't know if I wasn't in the mood for this or what, but this was not like any other Tami Hoag book that I have read before. This was just a love story--you know--boy meets girl--boy gets girl--boy loses girl-boy gets girl back. If you like that kind of stuff, go for it.

I enjoyed this book. Lots of laughs, some cries and lots of smirky smiles ;-) Bronwynn and Wade- what a pair! I could totally picture Foxfire, especially when Bronwynn first went there after the wedding. My favorite part was when they climbed the tree.

This book was ok. Mediocre. I liked the girl-her feistiness. The man was kind of bland. I did get a good kick out of the girl's pet sheep. That, along w/the raccoons, added lots of humor to the story.
Barbara Huskey
Tami's 1st book and definitely not a suspense, murder mystery or thrilling. It was a romantic love story. Glad I listened to the audiobook. For what it was, it was okay, but I'll be more careful to skip the romances next time and stick with the more exciting books she writes.

Wonderful combination of amusing odd couple and their emotional introspection, balancing humor with a touch of angst. I loved the heroine in this novel, who is both strong and highly individual. There was no mystery around why the leading man fell for her, and the opposite is true as well.

This book was abandoned. Like Tami Hoag for suspense thrillers, but some of the older books can be hit or miss. This is definitely a miss. I'm through page 50, I plan to read the last chapter and call it a day.

this book was not worth the paper that it was written on. I found it to be very annoying and predictable. The story line was very thin- it could have been wirtten in one chapter not taking up a full book. With that being said I did read it from cover to cover in one day .

Evidently one of her earlier works. Leans towards romantic trash. Not up to par of her later works.

Not a typical Tami Hoag Thriller/Suspense book. It was alright if you are in the mood for a quirky romance.

Surprised me that I enjoyed this as much as I did considering it is a man/woman love story and not a mystery. :)
