Back in high school, if someone had told Clare Fox she would write for a living someday, she would have laughed in their face — or just dumped her cafeteria lunch down their shirt.

Ten years later, she has overcome both dyslexia and her high-school-dropout status with her own, personal ace in the hole: Her extensive knowledge of the male species. Now, Clare is Miss Match,

Warning: Contains a tiny spoiler

So this book was really good, I haven't come across this author before but I'm glad I have now. I really liked the characters in this book. Clare was quite an angry character - most of her anger stemmed from not feeling good enough due to a learning disability - and I think the author did a great job of having an angry character but making her likeable. Then there was Javier who was really sweet and then you remember he is doing a job which annoyed me a lit

I abandoned the book 25% of the way into it. The main character is whiny and just downright mean at times. At this point, I don't care if the male lead coaxes her into falling in love with him....I just don't like her. ...more

The characters were very real to me. They seemed a bit foolish and awkward at times. Even the love scenes were very much about them. Their emotional development is entertaining and the way it fit the story arch made for a very nice happily ever after.

Clare is a bit of an anti hero, she's got some emotional hang ups and puts up a sort of macho front. Some of her behavior is immature, but her change in the book is very believable and she doesn't come off as silly just very realistic.

I admire what the author was trying to do here, but it seemed to me that there were about 3 separate conversations the H/h needed to have that they never really did. Points for a different kind of character development, though.

I was hooked from the moment I started reading. Ckare Fox is a brilliant, bitter and uses her pat experiences with men to write her column. Her pasts relationships clearly are of men who are not worthy, so her boss Adam sends her on a Cruise in the hopes that she will change her ways. Javier is a sweet, caring, and romantic hottie who wants to help all women find love again. I love these two and how they meet. This story is simply adorable. I loved it!!

I almost never DNF but I did on this one. I'm not usually much of one for "but what if the genders were reversed" but holy hell. Clare refuses to take no for an answer, repeatedly, to the point of getting violent when denied. That's not funny, charming, or cute. It's sexual harassment at the least, assault at worst. Clare doesn't need to be on a singles cruise, she needs to be in therapy and away from men until she can learn to keep her hands to herself. ...more

This is a book you either going to love or hate. Clare the main character has issues and hides them by being mean and nasty to everyone, more so men. Javier on the other hand has his issues too, but remains true to himself and his beliefs which drives Clare insane. That aside it was not a bad book, I found myself laughing at times which is a good writing ability and finished the book thinking I would not mind reading a little more if the other characters and what happens to them.

We all have demons or family traits we run from or avoid to not be. Talking about or bringing life to past issues helps not speaking up or bottling up past hurts boils over.

To grow we have to trust those we love around us to be honest about our patterns or behavior vise versa.

I’m not that impressed. The main girl is so incredibly mean to everyone - her friends, her boss/friend’s fiancé, men... who wants to be that person? Who wants to be WITH that person? I never liked the book because I never liked Clare.

Good ending.

I didn't read the first book but this one felt like a standalone. I liked the witty dialogue between the characters.

Storyline was cute, but he main character has a filthy mouth. All she did was swear and talk about sex to hide her insecurities. Hero was perfect!

I really love Clare Fox, the heroine of MISS MATCH (and the title character — she writes love advice columns for, samples of which are featured at the beginning of each chapter of the book).

She is a true anti-heroine: She's defiantly pro-sex, a bit bitter about men and relationships, and definitely somewhat crass and acerbic. She's also a girls' girl, an incredibly loyal friend, and a fighter-slash-lover at heart, meaning she would do anything for the people she loves, no matter

This book just wasn't for me.

I didn't like the characters. At all.

I didn't even really like the plotline.

I couldn't wait to finish it and put it on my Kindle archive.

I owed it to the author and the book to finish. Which I did. But it was not easy for me.

Just not my cup of tea.

Hmmm, let's see what can I say? A unique story line with interesting characters. A bit crass and lots of sexual innuendo throughout. ...more

Good if you're looking for a quick romantic read. Modern story. Consistent character development. Good tension to keep the plot going.

It was a sweet story but I battled to connect with the main character Clare. She started to irritate me half way that the book.
