Yes, she still loved Justin, but every time she was in a room with Matt, it was all she could do not to get caught up in the magnetism of attraction that was building between them.

Well, I have another book to add to my list of favorite Christmas romances! Wrong Brother, Right Match was a sugary sweet story that I found to be fully entertaining and satisfied this very sappy Holiday romance junkie. So if you’re just like me, go and grab you
Super cute holiday read. Another fun addition to the series.

Kennedy owns a successful up-and-coming dating service. She even met her perfect fiancé using her new, unique matching program. Kennedy and Justin seem to be perfect for each other, both are very career driven and her program cant be wrong, can it? Kennedy starts questioning the accuracy of her program when she goes to visit Justin's family for Christmas and everything she thought she wanted isn't quite what she had in mind. Especially

Love, love, love, love! Here I give you my biggest dreamy, happy sigh. If you are looking for the perfect holiday romance to snuggle in with this month (Or today. It really should be today because honestly? Why wait?!) then look no further because this is your book. I inhaled this book. It was so fun to read. I kind of want to go back and read it again. If I had time, I totally would.

Wrong Brother, Right Match was a sweet holiday romance, that was just the thing I needed at the time!

Kennedy runs and owns a successful matchmaking company, and her relationship with her boyfriend is the perfect example of that. They were matched by her software, and are right for each other in every way…or are they?

Six months previously while in Vegas Matt was trapped in an elevator with an unforgettable woman. Thinking he’ll never see her again he moves on with life. Fast forward to Christmas

I'm in love! One of my favorite movies of all-time is While You Were Sleeping and this story has that vibe. Kennedy is the mastermind behind a matchmaking agency and everything in her life is perfect. Or is it? A little sparky incident on a stuck elevator in Vegas leaves her wondering if her perfect fiance is really the perfect one for her. Imagine her surprise to find that dream man is her fiance's brother!

Kennedy just wants to be loved, have some roots and traditions, and to be happy. Because

Wrong Brother, Right Match was a sweet, fun and entertaining read.

I found Kennedy and Matt were both great characters, they were likable, relatable, they made me laugh, swoon and I enjoyed watching them connect and fall in love.


Overall this was a beautiful, heartwarming contemporary romance that will leave you satisfied and with a smile on your face.

Ahhh Christmas time.

I requested this book from Netgalley during what I like to call my "pre-Christmas requesting spree". The good times... *sigh*

This book felt like one of those cheesy Christmas movies you can find on tv during the holidays. Which is not necessarily bad, you just need to be in the mood for it to enjoy it. As a matter of fact, I did enjoy the story as it was as corny as I expected. But it was also predictable and the main character was a bit too cringy for my liking.

Happy to announce Wrong Brother, Right Match, WON the Sweet Traditional category of the 2017 Golden Quill Published Authors' Contest!

Hi. Yes, this again is MY book, so naturally it's a five star rating from me.
I'm bias that way.
Anyway, I've always wanted to write a Christmas book.
(I've tried in the past, but my novella ended up being changed to Valentine's Day. That's another story...)
But now I FINALLY have a holiday themed romance! Yay. I like to think of it as the book version of a Hallmark

This was a cute Christmas romance. Kennedy (we met her in the previous Anyone But You book) is the CEO of a software-based matchmaking company. She has had a lot of success and is ready to take her company to the next level, using her own success story with her boyfriend as the prime example.

However, things are not as perfect as they may look on the outside. Kennedy and Justin are compatible on paper, but Justin is a workaholic and has less and less time for Kennedy with a new
This romance novel was a pushing to the edge of the envelope with out going over PG 13 version of the typical G rated Christmas Holiday Hallmark movie. Not for minor age. See substance use, language, and sensuality content below.

Alcohol and other drug use: Frequent alcohol use but no abuse. Kennedy's future in-laws own a winery.

Language: Matt does frequent use of h*ll said aloud. Plus a couple d*m its or worse thought, but not said aloud.

Sensuality content: Clean. No sex. Barely any kissing. Tho

This a cute contemporary romance. The characters are fun and the pacing is great. I enjoyed reading this book.

The book has mentions previous relationships, but does not describe intimacy.

Charming! Simply charming! That's what this story is. Kennedy Pepperdine is certain she has found her perfect match. Good thing since matchmaking was her business. She's convinced she has it all until a moment trapped in an elevator with a stranger has her questioning everything. Shaking off the encounter she agrees to spend the holidays with her fiance at his family's home. Seeing her elevator companion again and finding out he is actually her fiance's brother deals her the blow of a lifetime. ...more

I received a copy of this title from NetGalley. It does not impact my review.

Wrong Brother, Right Match is basically a Hallmark Christmas Movie in book form and I love it!

Kennedy owns a matchmaking business and has recently developed specialized software to help match people up. She even used it on herself and found her fiancé. However, her relationship with Justin isn’t quite living up to her expectations. He’s a workaholic and often treats Kennedy as an afterthought. She’s determined to make i

Kennedy doesn't like messy. She wants everything to be perfect. Creating that perfection is what she does best, also for others. She's a matchmaker and has developed the exact right software to bring people together. She tested it on herself and found the ideal man through her own system. Justin is everything she wants in a boyfriend, he's handsome, smart and just as career driven as Kennedy. They rarely see each other, but they are amazing together, or aren't they?

Loved it!

This book was so darn cute and reminded me so much of the movie "While you were sleeping", one of my favorites. I didn't love some of the innuendo or suggestive thoughts the protagonists had, but it wasn't too often or descriptive. The sparks definitely flew between the characters as they butted heads, but their romance was sweet and satisfying in the end.

I loved this book. First of all its set at Christmas, my favourite time of the year. Secondly the romance between Kennedy and Justin is so obviously not right, they seem more friends then lovers. I feel for Kennedy so much, her desire for a family to call her own, plus not wanting her match making business to fail. Is clouding her judgement on what a perfect match is. After having a sizzling kiss in an elevator with a handsome stranger, Kennedy is determined to forget all about it. Until she goe ...more
Clean Christmas romance with two people with a connection who maintain what is morally right despite their attraction and feelings

Wrong Brother, Right Match by Jennifer Shirk was my first read by the author and I enjoyed this book and will definitely be keeping an eye out for more in the series. This is a clean Christmas romance and while this is part of a series, it can be read as a standalone with a HEA; any info about previous characters is given with just enough details to fill in new reader

Slick's review posted at Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

Wrong Brother, Right Match was a sweet holiday story with a whole lot of sexual tension and a bit of holiday magic. A crazy chance meeting between two strangers comes back in to play as the two meet again when she comes "home" with his brother for the holidays. This was a crazy mixed up story and I did enjoy the story, I just would have liked more time with the hero and heroine actually together.

The Book Junkie Reads . . .
Lite-hearted holiday romance with loads of fun sprinkled in. The charm of one man makes you confess the ultimate of your foibles of life. The man that appears to be the perfect match for you is not. Time goes by and you feel safe that you have no problems from the tiny confession. That is until you meet the other man again and it happens to be the brother of the not so perfect match you are with. What do you do?

This was a witty read that shows what it’s like to have the utter belief that you the
Oh, yes! I only wish I could have read it closer to Christmas. Definitely gets you in the mood for the holidays! Sweet, funny, and charming. Kennedy is a hoot. Was given this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

I really enjoyed the characters in this book, although I kept being distracted by thinking that an island off the coast of Massachusetts seems like a weird place for a winery, but what do I know?? Anyway, this was happy, clean fluff and I'm excited to read more by Shirk soon.

Kennedy had a computerized matchmaking business called Match Made Easy and the business was holding it’s own. Kennedy was at the Creative Technology Developer Conference in Las Vegas she had given a talk there. Kennedy’s boyfriend was Justin who sadly couldn’t get away from work to be with her at the conference. Kennedy and Justin both wanted 2.5 children and a dog and had been the first people she had tested her software on. Both Kennedy and Justin were workaholics also. For the sixth time that ...more

This is a sweet, fun and romantic read. This is a perfect holiday read. The characters are fantastic, you will fall in love with them from the first page. I just couldn't put this book down till id got to the last page, then I was left wanting more. The more I read from this author the better the stories get. I cant wait to read more from this author in the future.
Highly recommended

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again….Jennifer Shirk is my go to author for sweet romances. You can’t help but feel for the characters and want them to find their happily-ever-after.

Kennedy Pepperdine believes in love. Well, what she thinks is love. She doesn’t believe that your heart should guide you, but your mind. She believes that if two people have the same likes and dislikes that it makes them a perfect couple. She’s even betting her company, Match Made Easy, on this belief and the co

While her life isn't exactly perfect, because no one's is, Kennedy does know things are going extremely well for her right now, personally and professionally. The two even merged when Kennedy tested a matchmaking software on herself before initiating it into her business, Match Made Easy. The software deemed Justin, her current boyfriend, as her perfect match. But, as they seem to be playing a lot of phone tag lately, Kennedy is starting to wish Justin wasn't so Justin like. When sh
