Entangled Publishing releases some of the funnest books I've ever read and it's no wonder that I immediately wanted to read Meeting His Match upon glancing at that eye-popping cover and reading the attention-grabbing blurb. Meeting His Match, I found, was a short read mostly because I wanted to read on and on about these two characters and didn't want the story to end.
Addison is a New York City matchmaker who has grown up strongly believing that there exists only one soul mate for every individual. Ever since her husband's passing away, she has strayed away from relationships although she doesn't mind building relationships through her matchmaking company. Addison was a sweet character. She was also feisty, driven and got things done. I enjoyed her as a character very much although there were times she could be a little frustrating with her beliefs that there was one and only soul mate for everyone out there. When her friend asks her to help find a girlfriend for her brother-in-law, things change though. Caine was a high-profile CEO of a company that his father built. When Addison barged into his office and his life, he remained stubborn and convinced that he had no time for dating. He was fascinated by Addison though and the chemistry the two of them shared. You watch as slowly throughout the book Addison soften his heart and make him believe that he doesn't have to live a lonely life where he only strives to live up to his father's expectations. Out of the two, I have to admit that Caine was my favorite character just because he was a little less frustrating than Addision.
The dynamics between Addison and Caine was phenomenal! The two of them knew how to banter well and when they were not together in a scene, I was anticipating their conversations. It also helped that the two had sizzling chemistry together! I could feel the sparks between them. Addison and Caine were also respectful of each other as a couple, which I appreciated very much. It was also fun watching Addison bring all these things into the life of Caine which ultimately changed him as a character. I especially loved the dog and her four "mop" puppies, who become attached to Addison and grow very protective of her. The dogs were so damn adorable and the puppies were named after the Teenage Ninja Mutant Turtles. Every scene that they were in was an absolute riot! One other thing I really enjoyed about Meeting His Match was how the big "misunderstanding", which is found in pretty much every contemporary romance book, wasn't dragged out for too long, so even though I was annoyed by it, it didn't drive up the wall. I think fans of light contemporary romances should have no trouble enjoying Meeting His Match.
Overall, Meeting His Match was an entertaining read for me. I pretty much enjoyed every minute of reading it. It wasn't a life-changing kind of book, but it made me laugh and swoon along with the characters, which makes up for a great book. I'm definitely excited about this new line, Lovestruck, by Entangled. If Meeting His Match is a sign of what's to come, it's going to be awesome!(less)
