The one you want might not be the one you need.

Even though his friends think she's a terrible match for him, he sets out to prove them wrong.

But when Mark is forced to enlist the help

Independent reviewer for Archaeolibraian – I Dig Good Books

I tried. I tried really hard to like this book. The idea of the story was cute, unfortunately, it just didn’t do it for me.

The characters weren’t incredible. They didn’t grab me and make me want to like them. They seemed a bit under developed. Their relationships didn’t seem genuine.

The story line dragged. It had spots where I was hopeful where the story started to pick up. Every

This is a very fast paced, mildly paranormal romance that was easy to read. I never was able to like or relate to either of the protagonists very much. Mark Gage is a jerk and drinks too much. He lost his beloved wife a decade earlier which is supposed to excuse his rude, obnoxious behavior. His daughter wants him to find love and companionship since she will soon be leaving for college.

Athena is an uncommonly beautiful and alluring relationship coach. Mark's Daughter hires Athena to

You can't always judge a book by its cover. Mark does the typical man thing and judges Althena after his first glance of her, before even getting to know her name.... He is hilarious in his thinking as his friends & the mate matching tree try to led him in the right direction. His love for his deceased wife & dedication to his daughter is admirable though but he is set in his ways and doesn't even realize that he is giving off a not so good vibe to the opposite sex. Althena is very ...more

After Mark’s initial assessment of Athena as a jazzabell she is his dating coach. Mark sets out to date Daphne his sweet match even with all his friends telling him Daphne is all wrong for him, but after a second visit to the Soul Tree the tree has another woman in mind on who is Mark’s soul mate.

love, mark think he know just what he wants in a relationship and sets out to try and get the relationship, along the way he meets the one he is ment to be with. I loved this store and could not put it down.

Can you find love a second time? A true resounding love? This story moves that question in your mind. A little predictable (but we wanted that to happen). Some nice sparks between the characters, a little bit of worry, and a whole lot of counting on The Soul Tree coming through.

It took me a little to get into this one but I loved it. It was a very cute story. I didn't care for the speed change at the end. I feel like it ended too quickly.

I received this book or an honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.

Read an excerpt and follow the Goddess Fish book tour here.
This is the perfect romance for readers who like a little magic and a lot of hot. Mark starts as a crabby alpha who undergoes a transformation. He’s got the smoldering and glaring down. While this isn’t the type of romance hero I typically enjoy reading, he is well-developed and a great character for readers who enjoy their bad boys.
I have a lot of respect for

Don’t judge a book by it’s cover, is the main theme going on in this book, as people so often do. This is a nice shorter romance that had some fun banter even though Mark was a little too rough around the edges, and the book was a little too short to get a good connection to the characters.
