Kat couldn’t come across as more anti-social if she tried. With a mouth that makes a truck driver sound like a choir girl, an attitude that screams come close at your own risk, Kat can be unnecessarily brutal, rude, cruel and just a little bit too self-absorbed to realize she is not the center of the universe. Is her anti-social behavior a shield? Does she need a boyfriend and maybe some tension release?

When her mother joins the internet dating scene, Kat joins in, but will any of these men be a
This was a funny new adult romance with some over the top situations thrown in with some emotional bits for good measure. There was a prequel included that shined a bit of light on the heroine which you probably don't have to read first, I'd suggest that you do. I really did enjoy the heroine and a lot of the side characters though the mother was a bit wacky. At times the writing felt a bit erratic and a bit choppy going from one situation and thought to another quite quickly which took some get ...more

This is a decent romantic comedy read although I have to say that I felt no connection to the heroine. She is very dry and emotionless which is a big turn off for me. Some of the stuff she said was pretty funny and I did laugh a lot through the book but that's about it for me. There is some sex, there is a little tiny bit of romance, and a lot of LOL moments. I just wish the main character had a bit more personality.

So I read this straight after reading Unsocially Yours which was a good thing because it helped me understand who Kat was and her life up until now.

She basically is a woman who has huge issues with men, in fact she could have been the person who made up the saying 'all men are bastards.' As a young girl she lost her father when he died tragically, her mother hooked up with the parish priest and the guy she gave her virginity to turned out to be a shithead. Those experiences paved the way for her
Ever listen to a book and think " damn, this character is just like me?"
Yeah, well, I hadn't either. And I'm really not like Kat on the outside, but on the inside Kat is my spirit animal. She's ruthless, mean, and so fucking snarky that I wish we were friends. Best Friends.

I haven't listened to a book this funny in ages. Okay, probably about six months, but that's a long time in the audio world. Do you have any idea how many books I've listened to in six months?! Exactly.

I requested this book because it stated that it was a lighthearted romantic comedy and I freaking LOVE those. I could read those every day of the week and never get enough.

We have Kat (Katherine) as the main heroine of the novel. Although, I don't know if she would even like that title. We meet her in college as she falls for a guy who ends up being her college professor. Who then ends up cheating on her. Or maybe not. I feel like we never fully got the whole story because she never actually spo

This book was hilarious! As a person with little to no filter, I loved reading about Kat who is the same way. She may not be the most feminine female there is but she was great and loved her friends and family and she's one of my favorite heroines to date.

"I've heard talk of this bed twice now, yet I don't see it, and my clothes are still on."

I loved the whole online dating part of this story. It was witty and had a lot of laugh out loud parts. It had me so drawn in that I read this whole thing

The cover screamed CM Stunich and the synopsis shouted Tara Sivec, so did Match This live up to my expectations?

I was a little confused at the start of this book until I realised that the first part of the story came from a short story called “Unsocially Yours”. Despite my initial confusion, and after re-reading the author’s note, I read on and found myself becoming quickly engrossed in Kat and Owen’s story during her early days at University. I loved the unexpected turn of events surrounding Ow

Kat is an unapologetically filter-less, supremely snarky, tell-it-like-it-is chick. She knows who she is and, frankly, she could care less if you like her or not. Most of what comes out of her mouth is pretty judgmental commentary, but her rapid-fire delivery was uproariously funny most of the time—well except when she crossed over the line from sarcasm to honesty that can be almost too brutal. Most of the time, though, Kat’s the kind of girl you’d definitely love to hang with at happy hour, wel ...more

I just finished this book and I am on a book high!!!! I loved this book and there is nothing better than finishing a book and just thinking; Wow what a fantastic story that made me feel so good and happy while reading it.

I was able to connect with all the characters and the book was so well written I felt like I was right there experiencing everything they did. I fell head over heels for all the characters in this one. I am dying to dig into the second book to see how it is going

There are tikes you will laugh out loud, angry, and hoping that Rider is Ricco. I absolutely love how Kat has no filter, is independent and is a spit fire!

This is Kat’s story. Kat’s outspoken. She works in a tattoo shop with three men. She is not looking for love. She gets her loving through one night stands. When her mother comes for a visit she finds out that her mother is on a dating website. Now she needs to create a profile to keep an eye on her mother.

*** I was given an ARC for an honest review. ***

This book was totally wacky and made me laugh! Meet the unsocial Kat, with her crazy and over protective mother trying to manage the rules of dating … Or not! When helping her mother by subscribing in a dating site leading her also experiencing some priceless situations!

Kat is full of life, no filter, working in a tattoo shop and also Harvard educated! She’s not searching for her soulmate and enjoying her one night stands. Her body? Yes. Her heart?

If you like feisty,larger than life heroines, you have to read this book! MJ Fields brings us the story of Kat, a women who has been hurt so deeply by men in her life, she puts up walls to make sure none of those nasty "feelings" ever take root in her heart.

But, Kat has a secret. Her outside persona does not match her "house" or close friend persona. To the world she is tough, dark, tatted, no f%cks given. At home, she is Wine Wednesdays with her besties, unicorns and glitter. When her

I seriously laughed the whole time I read this book. It was a great read with lots of tricky emotions. On one hand I wanted Kat to find her man and bang it out. And on the other I enjoyed the randomness of her dates. She truly is a force to be reckoned with. There is a little cliffhanger at the end so I am so glad the wait for book 2 isn't long. I have to know what happens.

Jaded and alone but dealing with it with a wickedly tough as nails attitude Kat is my hero! Her life spirals when her father passes but she hicks up her nicker and moves forward. She has mommy issues, but she deals with it the best way she knows how... closing her self off. Making her harder than before.
Then the one time she opens up a tinny tiny bit.. Wham she get dealt with the reality of most men. I won't even say it, because you know what I mean. But this book is not about surviving, no it

Have you ever had a girl crush? Well, I found mine while reading this book. I definitely want to be like Kat when I grow up and I want to date her man. Yes, this is a 2 for 1.
Kat is independent, practical, irreverent, doesn’t like people and, most important, you better be prepared, because she doesn’t take sh*t from anyone! She’s also talented, hard worker and a loyal friend which makes her interesting as hell.

What did I love most about Match This! Kat, not Katherine, Kat! She is sassy, funny, a take no prisoner type of girl, and makes no apologies for it. Having read the novella, I know why she is like it. But what I also suspect, is deep down she has a softer side, she just needs the right man to bring it out.

Kat is an artist at a Tattoo parlour that she runs for the owners with Ricco. When Kat's mum comes for a visit, it throws things into a spin for Kat. Her mum knew she was an artist, but though

This is a very light and easy story that made me very happy that I don't have to do the whole internet dating thing. It almost reads like a warning to anyone about to take part in what is becoming a very popular way of meeting people. If these stories are true, then wow, that's scary. It was a funny intro, for me, to her style of books and I am definitely interested in seeing what happens next with Carrie and Kat.

How Can You Describe Kat in One Word You Can't.
She is the Foul Mouth, Trash Talking, Tattoo Artist Who Says It Like It Is And If You Don't Like It Then It Is Your Loss Because She Truly Is Fantastic.
Kat is loyal to her friends her co-workers but when it comes to relationships that's a no go. But who might change her mind is none other than her Momster.
With changes to her Mom's life she signs herself and Kat up for on-line dating and that is where the fun begins.
