OM MY! Where to start? The story line was good and kept me interested all the way through. This book was a story about two people who LOVED each other desperately but their seem to be no way for them to be together. The heroine Vivian as a mistress and Benedict the hero who is a gentleman from an very respectable family. Vivian saw NO way for them to be together because of the pain and sca

Her Perfect Matchis book 3 in the Mistress Matchmaker series by Jess Michaels . I liked the first two books in this Very Steamy series.

Vivien, the powerful Mistress Matchmaker, turned marriage matchmaker, starts this book with a hot ménage for her birthday gift.

As she prepares to give up her matchmaker position, she generated a list of 10 things to do.
1. Celebrate my friends, 2. Destroy someone evil. 3. Protect someone good, 4. Indulge in pleasure, 5. Give away that which I do not need, 6. E

"If you can't be with the one you love, love the one you're with" could be a mantra for our heroine, Vivien, in this book. The book begins with a hot, steamy mmf menage to celebrate her birthday. During the menage she realizes that while her flesh is being pleased her heart is not in it and something is missing from her life. The author does an excellent job of turning what could have been construed as a harlot into a woman with many dimensions and giving the reader insight to see past her actio ...more

After reading an Introduction to Pleasure I was excited to read the sequels. I wasn't feeling the second book, For Desires Alone but Her Perfect Match was really good. I loved Vivien in the first book so I was excited for her story. She is very tired of her life of parties and her status as Mistress Matchmakers after the last two she had match ended up in marriages. She decides the day after her birthday to find a change of pace. She was to complete her list of lose ends and after she has checke ...more

I really enjoyed reading Her Perfect Match. We finally get to read Vivian’s story! I’ll try very hard to not give anything away in this review (phew, this is going to be difficult). :)

The opening drew the reader right into the action and excitement of Vivian’s world, but also set-up the inciting incident that would carry us through the rest of the book. From the start, I wanted to know what was so special about Benedict that Vivian would be thinking about him at time such as [in the opening]. I

Jess Michaels does it again folks! This book was by far my favorite out of the series. Vivien has been a character in each book. She has been someone you want to find happiness and above all I really wanted to know more about her . How she became a mistress matchmaker?

In Vivien's story you learn so much about her, things I don't think the reader will expect. A good surprise. She has a past and seeks closure. She also has things she wishes to do before leaving the business for good.

No, in realtà non l'ho finito, ma la vita è troppo breve per perdere tempo in questo modo. Così ho manifestato uno dei miei diritti di lettore e l'ho mollato.
Troppo noioso, troppo forzato, con due personaggi poco appetibili e poco comprensibili, non si capisce dove vuole andare a parare e sinceramente non ti invoglia nemmeno a proseguire la letture per arrivarci. Ho letto l'epilogo tanto per sapere come finiva e basta così. Addio.

I am a fan of Jess Michaels, but I’m not a fan of her Vivian Manning series and this book just closed the deal for me. I won’t read too more of these kind of books from the author. I say that because with this book it was 90% sex and not enough emotional story there. I love a good romance story…something that melts my heart and really root for both the heroine and hero…but this was basically po** on pages instead of tv.

Can you turn a sex crazed individual into a loving partner and have them live happily ever after ? Of course you can. In the "romance land" of 21 century. Because no matter how many penises (or vaginas) they enjoys and can take at the same time from every hole of their body , nothing can substitute the "love" and the "feeling" of screwing... oops making love to their one and true love. And they lived happily ever after STD free.

After a glorious 10-year career as London's premier mistress and mistress matchmaker, Vivien Manning has finally met her match. In truth, Vivien met him three years before -- in an arrangement that evolved into something that Vivien was unprepared for and so she let him go. Having seen two of her closest friends successfully matched and settled with their husbands, Vivien is beginning to consider settling her own affairs and finally retiring, but, first, she must attend to some "Loose Ends" -- o ...more

Her Perfect Match is the finale installment of the Mistress Matchmaker series and It did not disappoint. I couldn't put the books down. It has great flow and very well written erotic scenes between Benedict and Vivien. The series concludes with Vivien a renowned Courtesan putting a list together in preparation of leaving the business. Of course her last protector Benedict his on the list as unfinished business.

I finished this book with a sigh and I feel genuinely happy for Vivien and Benedict. In this series, the author was able to reveal a side of the society during 18th century that was rarely given attention by many and that is the life of the mistresses. When we read all those historical romances that involved ladies and gentlemen who belong to aristocratic family, we often see mistresses as someone cold and desperate women. We often wonder why these women would resort to those things. The author ...more

The beginning of this story opens in a quagmire that likely repulses as much as it attracts. The heroine, Vivian Manning, engages in a manage-a-trois in celebration of her 29th birthday. After all is said and done she has gained little if any pleasure and she acknowledges that she wants to live a different lifestyle than that of an infamous mistress matchmaker but before she embarks on this different path she has some loose ends to tie. Benedict Greystone is chief among those loose ends. This st ...more

My favorite Jess Michaels book to date. Apart from a MMF scene with DP in the first chapter this didn't seem as weighted on the erotica scale as her others I've read. But then I HAVE kind of started skimming her repetitive sex scenes so maybe I just tuned them out. The story was great and I absolutely loved Benedict. He's just precious. Vivian was really likable as well. Great ending to the series.

This felt like a lackluster end for a mysterious character that delighted in other novels. I wish Vivien had just been able to fade away as a great supporting character.

Her Perfect Match is Jess Michaels’ conclusion to her Mistress Matchmaker series featuring the Matchmaker herself, Vivien Manning. It has been alluded to in the past two books that Vivien has not taken a protector in several years and we find out why in Her Perfect Match.

This books was equal parts steam and equal parts emotion. Halfway through the book however, I found myself ignoring the rather steamy parts for the emotions. I’m probably go

The last of the Mistress Matchmaker series by Jess Michaels, this was definitely my least favourite.

The story is about Vivien Manning, the infamous mistress matchmaker of the series, and Benedict Greystone, someone she has loved for years.

There was no story of how these two fell in love while they were together. It just felt like they were back together and that was it.
The sex was good but no character development between the two. They just had loved each other for a while and that was it. But o

We finally get to read the story of our favorite mistress matchmaker Vivien, and it is heart breaking. Just because the ton doesnt accept her and her means, she has to go without the love of her life, a man who desperately loves her back.

When they get back together after a time, he is determined to keep her, but she does not make things easy on the poor guy..

Very entertaining and easy to read (read the whole series in a weekend!)

If you like steamy historic romance, this is a must read!
Karline05 Un brin de lecture
Un amour de courtisane est une bonne conclusion pour la saga Les amantes. Même si le suspense n’est pas du tout au rendez-vous, c’est une lecture facile et on passe un bon moment. Rien que le plaisir, le second volet, était bien plus intéressant cependant. Dommage qu’il n’y ait pas eu ce petit plus qui fait d’une romance historique, un livre coup de cœur.

“Benedict, it is true I cannot accept any future you have offered me. We both know why.” Except he didn’t, but he said nothing and she continued. “But I would be lying if I told you that I didn’t still…think of you. Of us.”

He stared. Was this happening? Was she truly saying these things after three years of polite distance and pretending to be friends? “You do,” he said, flat and emotionless for he feared revealing too much.

She nodded. “It seems there is unfinished business between us. On both sides. And since everything is about to change, I wonder if we should resolve that business, if only so it won’t haunt us.”

“What are you saying?” he asked softly. She swallowed and her voice trembled as she whispered, “Be with me again.”
