Home for the summer, Samantha Kinsey is ready to step into her role as pseudo-nanny for her two favorite charges. But when she realizes she'll be playing chauffeur more than playmate, her summer outlook quickly turns from fun to bleak. That is, until she meets Colten McCoy—a genuine, hard-working cowboy, who's as set in his ways as he is handsome. Although he claims he doe ...more

Loved it! Another awesome romance from author Rachael Anderson.
Rachael is one of my favorite authors and this book is a good example of why. Spontaneous Sam's bucket list for the summer includes learning to ride a horse, riding a bull in a rodeo and having a fling with a cowboy. Stick in the mud cowboy Colton McCoy may not seem like a perfect match but when he sets out to help Sam with her bucket list these two opposites may have more in common than anyone thought.
This book contains a wonderfull

I really enjoyed this one!

I've been looking forward to this story for awhile now. I was excited when I saw that Rachael was writing a series, I love a series like this were we can see favorite characters get their own books and stay in the same setting that we fell in love with in the first book.

Samantha has been a fun character in the previous books and I was excited to see her story. She is such a fun character, upbeat and positive. She's also driven and knows what she wants out of life and

This one is a new favorite for me! Sam(antha) is everything that I wish I could be, but I think I'm more like Colten. She's very spontaneous and full of life. After graduating from college, she has the summer off before she starts her new job in NYC and heads home to spend time with her family. After chauffeuring young Kajsa to a ranch, Sam sits down and makes a bucket list for the summer. What a FUN and creative list! I've tried to make a bucket list before and it just seems boring. Sam isn't a ...more

I am always, always positively giddy when I get to read a new book by Rachael Anderson. She is one of my all time favorite authors. The way she writes just clicks with me and takes me right to my happy place.

I've been looking forward to reading Sam's story from the beginning of this series. Sam is a fun loving, happy girl. She knows how to enjoy life but she also knows how to work hard and love well. She is someone I would like to be friends with. Colten is more like Sam than she thinks. He als

Sweet fun read

What a great addition to the Meet Your Match series by Rachel Anderson.
Sam has always been such a fun, spunky addition to the books and I loved watching her grow. What fun to see her get her happily ever after too!
I loved that the book took on more of a rural country feel and I adored the connection between characters. Colton and Sam's relationship is so fun and endearing. I loved that they were such opposites but yet perfect for each other at the same time. They complimented each

This is the third book in the series and this one was just as fantastic as the other two! We met Sam in the first book and she was lovable from the beginning so I was excited to read her story!

Sam has been away at college and is back home for the summer before she heads to New York for her internship in the fall. She's worked hard and it's a dream come true for her. When she takes Kajsa to the ranch where she's working, she meets Colton. She's attracted to him right away and as they get to know

Rachael Anderson has quickly become one of my favorite authors, especially since I started reading her Meet Your Match series! Having read the first two books in the series, I really looked forward to this book, and it didn't disappoint. It was cute, it was flirty, it was fun. I loved the idea of Samantha's summer bucket list! I also enjoyed seeing one of the characters from the previous book--one of the young girls--take more of a role in this book without taking over. The shenanigans Colton an ...more

Rachael Anderson has a great series going with Meet Your Match. I haved loved every single book in the series. Each is a stand alone. You do not need to read them in order to follow along, but I'm glad that I have read each of them.

Sam loves to live life in the moment. She is daring, she makes bucket lists, she finds joy in every thing she does. Colton is happy on his family ranch. He doesn't do anything halfheartedly. He invests himself completely professionally, with his family,

I already knew Sam from the previous two books in this series. She was spunky and fun and the girls' favorite person outside their family, even though really she's become part of their family. I knew Sam would need her own happily-ever-after and I was excited to find out what that would be. There would have to be some twists and turns and some more serious moments, much against her usual personality, that would force her to take a good look at herself and her life. I also knew that whoever Sam m ...more

Our adventurous Sam is home for the summer and is looking forward to doing lots of fun things before heading off to New York in the fall to start her new job. She decides to make a bucket list and can't wait to start checking things off!

Colton is a very good-lookin cowboy who is not only a hard worker but very, very set in his ways. He likes things to be a certain way and does not like branching out.. at all! From the moment Sam steps into his life it goes from predictable to entertaining to sa

In this installment of the series, we meet Colton, a cowboy who loves what he does. What you see is what you get and he is as steady as they come. He's also giving eleven-year-old Kasja horse-riding lessons (you might remember Kasja from the previous book) and when he meets Kasja's aunt Sam, he's intrigued by her approach to life. She drives a sunshine yellow bug, has a lime green fuzzy steering wheel cover and a summer bucket list that includes riding a bull and having a fling with a cowboy. Th ...more

Loved. It. Rachael Anderson is my new favorite contemporary clean romance author and I must read everything by her! I've read and reviewed all three books in the Meet Your Match series now and each is fresh, unique, with fabulous romantic chemistry.

The characters of Samantha and Colton are so realistic and easy to relate to. It was a pleasure to read their growing friendship, light flirting and banter, and deepening feelings. The setting of the ranch with the subplot of training a wild mustang w

Loved this entire series!!
Rachael Anderson has a gift. That's all there is to it. I've read several books by her, including the entire "Meet Your Match" series. All 3 books in the series earned a 5 star rating from me on Goodreads. This book was like the others- it sucked me in to where I didn't want to put it down. When I had to enter back into reality to, oh I don't know, take care of my family or something, I could hear the book calling me, begging me to come back. Sam was such a spunky, fun

Sweet book. I liked the differences in these two and the compromises they made to stay together. I like how Andersons characters are real and situations that happen are real. I like the way the romance flows together and the story works well. You would think this would be boring, but it is written well and fun.

I loved this book for so many reasons!
1) I loved Sam’s character. She is definitely spontaneous. She is a positive person. Her family is very loving. Sam has spunk and an imagination with a fun personality. She is always making the most out of life and inventing something fun to do.Sam is spunky and loves everyone! I wouldn't mind some of her energy either!

2) I loved Colton’s character. He is hard working. He loves kids. He’s honest and has a good heart. Colton also has a loving and giving fam

This is the 3rd book in the Meet Your Match books by Rachael Anderson. I have loved this series! The first is Pride Meets Prejudice. The second is Rough Around the Edges Meets Refined. One wouldn't have to read all three books to understand the stories, but the characters do continue from one book to the next. I highly recommend reading them in order to be able to develop along with the stories and characters.

Stick in the Mud Meets Spontaneity is the third book in the 'Meet Your Match Series'. The first book was Prejudice Meets Pride, and the second book is Rough Around the Edges Meets Refined. I love it when an author brings characters from other books in a series to a new book. In this case all the characters I enjoyed from previous books are in this one. Stick in the Mud Meets Spontaneity is Samantha's (Sam) Kinsey's story.

Genre:Contemporary romance, Technically New Adult due to the ages of the main characters. However, it doesn't hold with a lot of the New Adult out there which was a bonus for me since I'm tired of NA books becoming so similar and alike.

The story of Sam & Colton is nothing short of adorable.

As the third book in the "Meet Your Match" series, readers have come to know and love the fun and spontaneous Sam. She's been away at college and is now home for the summer before heading to New York for her new job as a graphic designer. She has plans to spend the summer having fun with Kajsha and Adi, but she quickly realizes that her plans aren't going to come to fruition as she thought.

I so adore this series and how the author takes two completely opposite people and pulls them together in sweet romance.

I love that stories like this can whisk us away and help us see something different for a few moments each time we pick up the book.

I loved how the characters struggled to come together, but once they did they made the most of every moment...living in the moment and pushing the future aside for the time being.

Once again a great book from Rachel Anderson! I loved the conclusion of this series. After Emma and Noah, it’s now Sam’s turn to find love. I always love the fact that even though we follow a different character in each book we still get a glimpse at the previous characters and get to see a little of how things are going for them.

I love the fact that the author really depicts characters in a realistic way. I could rea

This was such a fun book, but it also had some depth to it. I enjoyed seeing the dynamics between the characters and seeing them encourage each other and compromise and sacrifice for each other. The further I got into the book, the harder it was to put it down. It was great to become reacquainted with characters I loved from other books, one of the great things about reading a series. And reading this makes me want to go back and reread the others in the series.

I enjoyed this story from start to finish. Samantha is someone I'd love to know and be friends with - happy, bubbly, kind, spunky, optimistic and good. I like how she isn't sure what to think of Colton, but wants to figure him out. I love the sparkly, funny way she thinks and see things. Great story with family, friends, goals, and an unexpected match. I like that they weren't looking for it but couldn't walk away either. ...more

Colton McCoy is tenderhearted, funny, clever and confident. Samantha is creative, interesting, and fun. Both Colton and Samantha were so easy to love!

She has a summer bucket list; He has a summer to-do list. She loves to go from one adventure to the next; he lives on the same soil as his great-great grandfather. She wants a summer fling; he wants forever. They are both going to get so much more than they bargained for!
