Recommended to Dina by: Tammy
Let me start by saying this: I admit I'm a "sexist" and I read romance novels mostly for the hero. As long as the hero is worth it and the heroine isn't a pain in the a$$, I'm happy.

That said, I have to state that the best thing about Match Me If You Can was Annabelle and not Heath. She was just adorable in her quirkiness, the kind of friend I cherish in RL. She loved Heath, so I wanted her to have him. Not because he was to-die-for, but because he was "the one" for her. Seriously, I spent a lar

l loved it just as much, if not more, the second time around.

Annabelle. What's not to love? A strong, independent lady who won't bow down to the whims of her family. She knows what she wants to do and she goes for it.

Heath. Sexy, and boy does he know it. But he's made a name for himself and is now a smart, confident, rich guy.

Great to catch up with Phoebe, Dan, Molly, Kevin and the gang.

I know, Heath's description in the book is nothing like this guy but who cares.... I know what I like so I wil
And the magic continues. Though I have to admit, I wasn’t sure if I was going to love this one as much as the other. I wondered how SEP would pull it off since these two characters were not part of the immediate Chicago Stars family but she did it. I. LOVED. IT.

I’m going to try to keep this one short and sweet.

In Match Me If You Can we meet Heath. He is Kevin Tucker’s agent. He was sexy, had a killer smile and dressed to kill. He was also known as the Python.

4.4 Stars - Amusing, romantic, great high quality m/f romance as always from SEP

I just finished the 11:15 hrs audiobook edition amazingly well narrated by always delivering Anna Fields. — I love all these characters, this style of contemporary and enjoyed every minute.

This will be a lazy review... you all already know how much I like these Susan Elizabeth Phillips romances. It's not much to say: this was another GREAT installment to an fantastic series.

Match Me If You Can is about Heath, the wealthy sports agent, who wants the perfect wife. Of course, he's too busy to look for this perfect woman and instead has two different match making agencies in search of her. Annabelle is the owner of one of those agencies and she's determined to find him the perfect woman.

Heath's demands on Annabelle created a lot of fun banter. Having Annabelle attend all the introductions between him and the potential candidates built lively conversation between the t
What a totally unexpected treat!! I really loved this one. It was my first Susan Elizabeth Phillips book, but I’m already looking for more of her work. The premise was so adorable. Annabelle Granger comes from a family of successful doctors, accountants and the like, but every business she becomes involved with ends up failing. She studied theatre in college, but that didn’t amount to much. Her ex-fiancé is now a cross dresser, and she hasn’t been with a man since their broken engagement 2 years ...more

Another stunner from Susan Elizabeth Phillips! I can’t seem to get enough of these books. Match Me if You Can is Book 5 in the Chicago Stars series, and it features Kevin Tucker’s sports agent...

Heath Champion, who has enlisted the aid of a matchmaking firm to find him the perfect wife… before his upcoming deadline for marriage, his thirty-fifth birthday.

“I’m looking for someone extraordinary.”

It seems Heath has his life planned to the “T.” After surviving his disaster of a childhood

Oh, how I love this story. If anyone isn't hooked on Susan Elizabeth Phillips, they should read this novel (even if it's out of order), they will be in for a treat!

We have a desperate, down-on-her-luck heroine, Annabelle, who takes over her grandmothers matchmaking business. Annabelle is one of the loveliest, most courageous and strong heroines I've encountered in this genre, and other than her quirkiness and laugh-out-loud quotes, she has something that makes me sympathiz
I've read Match Me If You Can four times now - without a doubt my favorite SEP book in the Chicago Stars series! - so I couldn't help picking up the audio version after reading several rave reviews about it. Anna Fields was very talented and her voice was most definitely a perfect match for the scatterbrained Annabelle Granger. (Sort of reminds me of actress Zooey Deschanel.) It saddens me to hear that Anna Fields passed away. I will be snatching up as many of her audio books as possible before ...more

Some readers would consider this a contemporary romance. I call it chick-lit, because I'm doing a chick-lit challenge and I don't feel like digging up another book. Besides, Match Me If You Can conforms to all the chick-lit rules. There's a ne'er-do-well heroine who can't do anything right (work, love, relationships, etc.); the hero is rich and handsome (and nothing more); there are some sidekicks who are supportive and/or quirky; and there's endless, endless, endless descriptions of what these ...more

I've read this 3 times now and I can still say its one of the most memorable SEP books EVER. I don't need to rewrite the 2009 review, but I just wanted to point out that this has high re-read value. I really need to get myself a permanent paperback copy.

I often have mixed feelings about SEP books, but this one really made me uncomfortable. Some takeaway messages:

• To start your book off with a bang, make your heroine an insecure screw-up and make sure you mess up her clothes and make her late for an important appointment
• It's ok if your family denigrates and insults you, as long as they love you (you, of course, being a woman)
• Men who work too hard have to fall in love and they'll learn to scale back; women who work too hard have to have thei


SEP never disappoint. The story is the typical romance but have a great characters. It was nice that the Chicago stars members is back is complete with additional Pippi, who won my heart.
Oh my goodness, how much do I love this book? Let me count the ways!!

1 - Who doesn't love a super sexy, high powered, supremely arrogant know it all hero who falls head over heels in love with the heroine?

2 - Annabel is one of my all-time favorite heroines! Sweet, spunky and after years of dealing with her over-achieving family, dealing with Heath is a piece of cake!

3 - It's a story about good old-fashioned matchmaking! Yes, matchmakers seem outdated as a general rule, but they are still in exis
Match me if you can is a sassy, fun, light hearted romantic comedy about finding love. It wasn't as dazzling as It Had To Be You, but it was definitely entertaining. I enjoyed it!

Recommended to Kinga by: Jill
Jill and I have this new game we play. I recommend her something outside of her comfort zone, and she recommends me her favourite romance books. It works perfectly for me, because I get an excuse to read another romance.

'Match Me If You Can' is a contemporary romance novel and that's a pretty new territory for me.

I am used to Regency stuff where the characters are so proud and prejudiced that they will go through the whole book before they verbalise what they feel. The insane Victorian conventi
Actual rating - 3.5.
This was my least favourite book in the series so far but I did enjoy it.
**3.5 stars**

Match Me If You Can was going great until the end when not one but TWO of my big romance pet peeves reared their ugly head: the public proposal and the "tell me you love me or else" emotional blackmail. One or the other usually makes want to pull my hair out so you can imagine how I felt with both.

Annabelle has failed in pretty much every career she's tried and now she wants to give it a go as a matchmaker. Heath Champion, a successful sports agent, is in search of a wife and she ma

Mü-kem-mel! SEP "beğenirim-beğenmem" konularında asla şaşkınlığa uğratmaz! Kitaplarındaki kurgusu nefistir. Eğer okuyucusunu güldürmek istiyorsa, yanaklarınızın acımasına hazır olun. Eğer biraz heyecanlanmanızı ve kalbiniz kırılmış gibi hissetmenizi istiyorsa, aman Allah zavallı yüreciklerimizi korusun. Aşık hissetmenizi istiyorsa, iptalsiniz ve aşıksınız. Size üzmek istiyorsa, ağlarsınız. Kalemiyle bunu çok net ifade ediyor. Kelimelerle oynuyor, karakterlerin didişmelerinde kullandıkları cümlel ...more

Me gustó mucho esta historia de amor. Simple, pero muy dulce y divertida. Me encantó la química entre los protagonistas (Annabelle y Heath). Me gusta mucho cuando SEP nos regala “un poco más” en sus libros. En este caso, la historia de amor paralela a la principal (entre Portia y Bodie), y el reencuentro con los personajes de los libros anteriores que forman la saga y que tanto adoramos. Precioso y muy original el epílogo. ¡Me encantó! ...more
Her kitaba korkarak başlıyorum artık. Malum her seride illa fire veren bir kitap vardır ama bu seride hiç mi olmaz ya. Tamam bir önceki kitap diğerlerine göre bir tık daha aşağıdaydı ama yine de 6 kitabı da sıkılmadan okudum. Hangisi favorim seçmek zor.
SEP bu serisinde aradığım güçlü kadın karakter profilini çok güzel çiziyor ancak Annabell ile Nirvana'ya ulaşmış bence. Yok böyle bir kadın ya. Yazan ellerine, düşünen aklına sağlık.
Bolca güldüren bolca da ayyy nidaları çektiren bir kitaptı. Baz
As is often the case with this author, I felt that her male romantic lead was practically abusive. However, I did like Annabelle and wanted her to succeed -- if this had been the story of her succeeding in her matchmaking business instead of the account of how she ended up with a rich and domineering asshole it could have been quite funny.

Another amazing story brought to us by the lovely Susan Elizabeth Phillips who, as far as my reading status, doesn’t disappoint.

This was such a great book for me because I fell in love with the characters since page one. The main and secondary ones were really well built, their relationships weren’t the best ones and this made the ending even more splendid. Annabelle was a cutie, I just loved her. The way she evolved throughout the book impressed me and I felt happy when things got settled betwe

Susan Elizabeth Phillips is a dangerous woman. I learned that way back in 1989 when I stumbled across her novel FANCY PANTS. In that richly textured, mainstream glitter and glitz women's fiction novel that still managed to be one of the most extraordinary romances I'd ever read, she first did the impossible. She made golf interesting. That's right. Her hero, Dallie Beaudine was the sexiest golfer to ever pull on (or off) a pair pants.

Since then, I've been forced to govern my SEP
2/5/12 I enjoyed this book as much the second time around. This book has so much heart. Great story. Great narrator.

This might end up being one of my favorite SEP book. Phillips out-does herself with great characters and snappy dialog. I only had a few nits to pick. As often happens in an SEP book, the heroine's stubbornness goes on too long toward the end of the book. The only other cons were family members that bully (this is a pet peeve of mine) and flowery prose for the sex scenes. T
This was okay. It wasn't my favorite by SEP but it kept my interest. I skimmed over the secondary romance because I did not like Portia and was not interested in reading about her. It was pretty easy to bypass it because the secondary romance had it's own sections that were not really entwined in the hero and heroine's story, thank goodness. The storyline of trying to find a match for the hero had it's appeal, but the love scenes were sadly lacking in this one. I was also expecting a little more ...more
Quirky and awkward Annabelle has inherited her grandmothers matchmaking business. She wants to revamp the business and sets her sights on finding a partner for Heath Champion, one of Chicago's most eligible bachelors.
Despite her own growing attraction, she is determined to find for him his perfect match, and they are both just as determined that it not be her.

I enjoyed this book a lot. It was by the numbers but well written with an engaging story and likeable characters.
Match Me If You Can is the sixth installment in Susan Elizabeth Phillips' Chicago Stars series. I just love this series and am slowly but surely making my way through the books. Sadly, I am almost to the end. Match Me If You Can is a very interesting take on the classic matchmaker story featuring the matchmaker herself being the perfect match for her client. This story does not arrive to this conclusion easily though and I enjoyed the experiences that lead up to it. As always, there is a romance ...more
