This is the second book that i read in the series. Its quite a nice novella. Due to the lenght, all of in this book is insta lust and insta love.

Miss Sutton has this talent writing a very good delicious short story with the right chemistry and sweet banters. I wish that this book can be more than novella.

I love Zeke. He is such a mysterious man. Underneath it all, he is amazing person. There is that sweet vulnerability on him tht tugs me. I love a hero who can show how vulnerable he is.

The romance was just the right blend of funny, tender, sexy and real. I love low angst romance which is all about the couple.

Watching Zeke and Margo fall in love is a pure joy. I adore the Zeke is not a man whore. His not a man whoreness is beyond hot. They become great friends. There are things each needs to work through but in the end they are meant to be.

Love all the tropes are done so well but the writing is so crisp and the dialogue is lovely with all these little gems studded through the

This book is just a novella in this series and follows Zeke and Margo as roommates. This book is just sooo cute.

Margo aka Go-go as Zeke calls her falls in love with him in a heart-bit. She is a vet in a new series and needs a low rent. They spend a lot time together and she already sees a future with him but........

Zeke as in a other hand is an ex-militar and he does sees himself marry again or falling in love with a much younger(just 11 years) woman who makes him hot and thinking naughty thoug
My review cross-posted from Wit and Sin:

There are some stories that just make you happy when you read them. The Perfect Fit is exactly that kind of tale. Jenna Sutton has delivered a story that’s so bright, charming, and heartwarming that I couldn’t put it down.

Margo is a ray of sunshine. Her energy and optimism jump off the page and she simply dazzles everyone, Zeke included. Margo is a veterinarian who has always wanted to move to San Francisco, but

Oh, wow. ZEKE! I can't tell you how much I loved this sexy novella—although I'm certainly going to try...

I've have the good fortune to review two other books in this series—Coming Apart at the Seams, and the upcoming Hanging By a Thread. I enjoyed them both, HBaT immensely. I thought nothing would top my love for Cal O'Brien, but Zeke May definitely gives him a run for his money. (Although, the little moments with Cal in The Perfect Fit just reinforced my adoration of the O'Brien heir.)

Zeke is an odd one, he tries to do the right thing, or what he thinks is right and it ends up being wrong. I liked the relationship between Margo and Zeke, the girl knows how to voice her opinions:
She huffed in obvious frustration. “Because I’m in your bed, Zeke, and you haven’t even noticed that I’m almost naked.” Glancing down, he eyed her breasts. Her tight black camisole barely contained the plump mounds.
“I noticed,” he assured her.
At times Zeke would rather show Margo his answers to quest

I wasn't expecting to love this book, but I totally did. I love roommate romances, and this one really fit the bill. Yes, it's a novella, so it's on the short side...and yes, I do wish it had been a little longer....but I still loved the friendship that developed between Zeke and Margo. I loved his little nickname for her (go-go) but I kind of wish I'd seen how she ended up with that nickname.

I loved seeing them fall for each other, even if I wished I'd been able to see more.

I loved the little detour that The Perfect Fit provided by exploring the life, one of the O’Brien’s employees, a broken ex army man and young broke veterinarian who happen to end up living together and finding that they are the perfect fit.

Zeke Mays was the perfect distraction whilst waiting for the third book and whilst we did get glimpse of Cal O’Brian, the last of the O’Briens

This was a cute short novella. Loved Zeke from the beginning, not only is he this big hulking military hottie but his protectiveness of Margo was freakin adorable and he had a sense of humor.

Zeke and Margo are as different as night and day but that's what makes it all so fun. This was a pretty drama free read. There is some angst, our H suffers with PTSD and deals with some insecurities and doubts about starting a relationship since an IED took his leg. Margo was Zeke's wake up call and I loved

This is a quick little novella that adds to the O'Brien series. While we see some characters from the previous books we also meet two new characters.

Zeke and Margo are different as night and day but with them being roommates that doesn't matter much. These two have an attraction towards one another but Zeke is quick not to let anything happen between them. One they are roommates and that could be awkward and two he is 11 years older then her, but the more time they spend together doing just room

This was a very enjoyable and quick read, even if the price was too high for a novella. I liked the plot and I really loved the well rounded characters and almost everything made sense in their attitudes and reactions. I must confess that the format of the sex parts was unexpected, but justifiable since passion was already simmering for some months.
There were a few inconsistencies though: (view spoiler)

I so enjoyed THE PERFECT FIT! Light-hearted, fun, sexy and sweet, it was just the right combination to keep me turning pages, and wishing for more of Zeke and Margo!

For the length of a novella, Sutton packs a punch with emotion and heart, and a side of spice that has the heart pumping! If you are looking for a great introduction to Sutton's writing, check out THE PERFECT FIT, you will find it to be a delectable treat!

My Review:
First things first...this is a novella within a series, but you absolutely do NOT have to read the series to be able to enjoy this novella. While it falls within the world, the stories really have no bearing on one another at all. Pick this one up to check out this author's writing. I think you will enjoy it and then you can check out the rest of the series.

This book is about Margo and Zeke. Margo is a new veterinarian starting her first job in the city she's always wanted to live in.

What a cute, make-you-feel-good read! I loved every second of The Perfect Fit. The only downfall of this one? That it had to end. I had such a good time with these two as desperation brought them together as roommates and they went from strangers to best friends to something even more. *sigh* I loved them.

Zeke is one sexy beast of a man. He's a little older at 36--she's 25--and maybe a spot world weary after coming home from

Wow, what a refreshing and sexy novella! The Perfect Fit by new to me author Jenna Sutton, is a fast-paced story with two main characters that are instantly fascinating, likable, and have a ton of off the charts chemistry.

A quick read from Jenna Sutton, The Perfect Fit was a heartwarming novella and fourth standalone in the series Riley O'Brien & Co.

This the story of Zeke and Margo, a former army veteran and a vet. For a short read, Jenna Sutton does a good job with character building and gives us the backstory of the leads.

I loved how the relationship developed between Zeke and Go-go (Margo, as he fondly calls her) and how they go from roommates to friends and then lovers.

I was given an ARC from NetGalley for an honest review.

This is my first book by this author. I will be reading the others in this series. While this book is part of a series, you do not have to read the others first.

I loved Zeke and Margo. Zeke is ex-military, a little stiff, but with a big heart. Margo is a veterinarian, easy going and quick with a laugh. They start out as friends. What I really liked was the emotional connection between the two that came before the sex.

When I finished the book
Awesome read. Very well paced for a novella and the relationship development was perfect!
3.5 stars.

The style was a bit too wordy for my tastes. I don't need to know what the characters are wearing or eating in great detail, but I know that works for some.

Overall pretty cute with a few cheesy bits and a quick ex-drama. Fun story for dog lovers.

Zeke is a 36-year-old former army Major who had a lower leg blown off by an IED. He now works in the supply chain for Riley O'Brien and CO (repeatedly mentioned by FULL name). He lives in a nice 2-bedroom apartment and needs a roommate to help

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.

The Perfect Fit was a perfect way to spend a few hours on a Saturday afternoon. It also proved to me that my love of this series is not just because I love the O’Brien family, but because I enjoy Sutton’s writing. Unlike the previous installment in the series, neither of the main characters in this novella are a member of the O’Brien family. Well, not the genetic O’Brien family, that is, because Zeke is an employee at Riley

Now the blurb made me want to read it all the more. I love a good book about the heroes of this country, whether they be military, fire, police, they are all HEROES in my book.

“So,” Cal said, drawing out the word, “that was Margo. Your roommate. The one you’re not attracted to. The one you don’t think about ‘that way.’”
Jake snorted. “He thinks about her ‘that way’ and a thousand other ways, too, I’ll bet.”
“At least a thousand,” Cal agreed. “In the car. On a bar. Against a door. On the floor. In the shower. In a tower.” He paused. “I’m channeling Dr. Seuss.”
Jake snickered. “On a bed. In a shed. In a tent. Under a vent. On a slope. With some rope.” “Rope is too rough. It chafes delicate skin,” Cal noted. “I prefer to use one of my ties.”

Zeke crossed his arms over his chest. “Are you done yet?”
“Why are you still here? Don’t you have anything better to do?” Cal asked.
“Yes, you do. Her name is Margo.”
