One date. Wrong match.

When the raven-haired beauty popped up on my phone as a match, I had to have her. She became a fast obsession, one I couldn't get out of my head. Our first date was a disaster. But when it came to sex, we made sense. So, we came up with an arrangement--sex with no strings attached.

Everything was working out until she became my new employee. I was sup

This is an author whose work I’ve greatly enjoyed in the past so I was eager to read an advance copy of this book. The writing was good, the editing and proofreading were great, and the storyline was decent, but these characters made my head spin.

These charqcters are all professional people, doctors who make life and death decisions, and the best friend, Stacey, behaved like she was in middle school. For a character who seemed to think only about men and sex and had no filter between her brain a

I really enjoyed this story. Sloan is a high demand surgeon and is now being told he is to be teaching the next surgeons.

Ava is one of those new surgeons. But before she starts her residency her friend hooks her up online with a blind date. Ava ends up meeting Sloan. And man do they have some chemistry. These two hit it off in the bedroom wonderfully, but their out of bedroom issues are big. With him being her teacher and her the student they could ruin their careers. So is sex worth their care

And Jillian Quinn shines once again! Man, how much I love this diverse author’s books! And this book has a special place in my heart it’s something entirely different than anything Jillin wrote before.

The humor and the hotness in this book is like nothing else. And the characters! Sloan and Ava is the couple you will never forget!

This book is sexy, sassy and has a life of its own!

Being a doctor leaves little time for love, so Sloan sticks to keeping things with the ladies light and fun, and only one night or two, forever just isn't in the cards for him right now. His job consumes most of his time, which makes online dating seem like the perfect solution, send a message or two, discover things you like about your match, and then schedule a date, and if your lucky the date will lead to a night between the sheets. Then on to the next one and so on and so on... but his "on t ...more

The Match is a new book by Ms. Quinn that’s all about a forbidden romance and sexy doctors.

I have read other books by this author and she never disappoints in the sexy hotness department!

In this book we have Sloan Hart, who is a general surgeon and is in charge of the new residence for three months while the other Doctor is out on medical leave.

We also have Ava, is a new residence. Although she is new to the hospital, she is the daughter of a cardiac surgeon and she knows what she is doing, and not grossed out like the other new residence.

Sloan’s career as a doctor encompasses all his time and energy so he only wants a little fun and has no interest in a relationship. He finds the best day to do this is through a dating app and he has had not problem in the past with enjoying one evening with a woman and then moving on but there is something different about his last date, Ava.

Ava’s sole focus has been completing her schooling to be a doctor. Her friend has arranged a date for her to have a little fun before she starts her residen

I am an absolute fan of everything Jillian Quinn has written. The Match is different from what she normally writes as this book is super steamy. She wasn't shy in writing sex scenes in her previous books, but this one practically melted my kindle. Now that isn't all what this story is about, it does play a huge factor, but this book is so much more than that.

The Match is a story that goes to show that you never know how you might be connected to someone. Ava and Sloan meet through a dating app, and their blind date quickly turns into a one-night stand... that evolves into a second night of debauchery the following evening. Monday morning comes around, and Ava is one of the new residents under Sloan’s mentorship at the hospital.

A relationship is forbidden per hospital regulations, but that doesn’t stop Sloan and Ava from sneaking off into his office

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

This was a short but HOT romance about two doctors, Sloan is a surgeon and wants to chief or surgery. He meets Ava through a phone app before she starts her residency and they have a very HOT night.

Then he discovers she is his resident and he is her boss...and I am not telling you what happens after that. This was HOT, more hot than story in my opinion. The plot was very light and we don't really get to know the characters very well bu

Medical romance has never been this fun or sexy!

Sloan & Ava have wicked chemistry. Trying valiantly to deny it and failing, their (s)excapades are entertaining, as well as the angst and suspense surrounding the forbidden aspect of their relationship. The banter between Sloan & Ava was witty, and humorous at times. They each gave as good as they got. I liked that both main characters were strong figures, and that the author didn't try to change or temper their personalities.

This book is all kinds of hot and sexy!! Sloan and Ava meet on a dating site. The plan is one night and it’s over. Well so much for that they decide they will just hook up no strings attached. That’s fine until they find out that Sloan is Ava’s boss!! They are both doctors at the same hospital and so no dating. This is a great story full of the hot and sexy Dr Hart. I couldn’t put this one down. I loved the push and pull of the characters. I also really enjoyed Ava and her best friend. Fantastic

This doctor and resident really heat up the workplace as their sex with no strings relationship begins to turn into so much more. So Fun, So Sexy and So good. This book is not to be missed. I'm posting a completely honest, voluntary review after reading this book.

This was such a good book.
I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of this book.
I love all of Jillian’s writing and she never disappoints!
The sexual chemistry between Sloan and Ava was instant and was flowing off the pages.
It wasn’t a perfect match at first but ended up being just right for them in the end.
This book is hot, steamy and the perfect amount of forbidden with the employee/employer situation.
You definitely won’t want to miss out on this book!

This was an easy book to read. It was a bit funny about a college student trying to get into the hospital program to become a surgeon and meets a young man who turns out later to be her hook up for a one night stand. Which come to find out later ends up being her boss and their one night stand continues during the day at the hospital. It’s a different book than the author’s usual but it was fine for a funny and light reading. I offered to read the book for a review.

What happens when you best friend signs you up for a dating sight? Nothing until she starts a flirtation with a handsome match and agrees to a date for you! Ava has one more weekend of freedom before her residency begins and her life will the hospital so she throws caution to the wind and meets Sloan. One night of passion isn't enough but when reality hits and their relationship become taboo, sneaking around becomes a must. Great chemistry, loved the story line.

I love some forbidden romance and this is a great example of the genre.
Sloan and Ava are extremely hot and heavy throughout this entire book.
I appreciated that there was substance to both characters.
Both risked everything in order to be together and this added depth to the overall story.
Can't wait to read more from an author who delivers the fun, the steam and an enjoyable read.

Sloan & Ava are a couple you will not forget. Sloan is a sexy AF doctor who isn’t interested in any relationship and Ava is working on her residency to become a doctor. When Sloan & Ava meet it was only suppose to be a one night stand but both couldn’t resist the connection they both feel. I love reading about Sloan & Ava and their forbidden relationship. They are hot and sexy and you will not want too stop reading. Another amazing read by Jillian that I absolutely love.

This is a steamy, forbidden romance about two Doctor's who can't keep their hands off each other. They started off as a one night stand, then turned into no strings attached and ended out in a forbidden work romance. Sloan and Ava are a perfect match. This well written, steamy story has great characters and a sexy storyline. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
