    What an amazing and seamless writing duo Corinne and Melanie are!! The writing is flawless, the storyline well thought out and the characters, well, imperfect - but that is what makes this book such a gem to read.

    Both Reid and Willow are flawed but they are the best of friends and know everything about the other. What we see is the next step in their friendship with a little help from Willow's mum and sister - who, alongside Willow, run a dating agency. Their imperfections play a huge role in th

    In some ways, I think that Willow and I always knew this would happen. They say guys and girls can't just be friends, but we were-until we weren't.
    I don't know when it changed, but I thank the Lord that it did.

    Willow Hayes and Reid Fortino are just friends. Well, not just friends, BEST friends. They are neighbors, each other's nightly dinner date, and keeper to each other's secrets...well, for the most part. Everyone thinks they should be together.

    Everyone but them.

    I automatically fell in love with these characters, right from the 1st chapter. Once I started I couldn't put it down.

    Reid and Willow are soo GREAT together. I FLOVE their friendship, the banter, how comfortable they felt with each other. Willow's mom had me cracking up and her relationship with Reid was just too cute!!! Reid's brother and Willow's sister add to this wonderful experience.

    I love Reid and Willow in their endearing, heartfelt, and steamy, friends to lovers romance! They are so much fun, and their chemistry is off the charts! Reid and Willow are best friends and neighbors. When Willow's mom pressures them both, for different things, everything begins to change. They want to help each other, altho reluctantly, and that makes them begin to see each other in a new light. There were so many laugh out loud, and awkward moments that were so hilarious.

    I really enjoyed Reid and Willow’s chemistry and just the way they have fun together. They are true friends who are always there for each other and know each other so well.
    Some of the things they say will make you laugh. It’s a book that keeps your interest and you will not want to put it down. I hoping there will be another book with some of the characters Imperfect Match.

    I am a *HUGE* sucker for best-friends-to-lovers stories. It's my favorite genre so you can only imagine how I excited I was when my favorite author, Melanie Harlow teamed up with another amazing author, Corinne Michaels to write this book. Together, these two powerhouse authors deliver a funny, sexy and emotional story that hit all the right notes and then some. In a word, I LOVED it.

    Italian men are my weakness. The dark hair, the olive skin, the love of pasta. It is a truth universally acknowledged, that an Italian man in possession of an appetite must be in want of pasta. And that my friend means he will want to eat pasta with me every night. Perhaps at lunch too.

    Reid Fortino has that other quality I adore in a man. He can laugh his girl right into bed. He’s hilarious and witty. I think he might be my perfect match. I need to look up the number of Willow Hayes because wor

    A friends to lovers romance with some imperfect matchmaking. I really enjoyed this read. Reid and Willow are best friends who realize they want more. They definitely have their road blocks that will test their friendship/new relationship. Their chemistry is sizzling and their banter funny and witty. You’ll devour this in a sitting.

You see these two people swearing that they are just friends and as the reader you giggle a bit because you KNOW what's coming for them and it's gonna be sweet. Corrine and Melanie do not disappoint. This is a beautiful friends to lovers story that shifts into something deeper about half way through. Romance novels are about hope and love and finding what makes you whole and happy.

Willow and Reid's story has all the feels and had me laughing and smiling like a fool. These two friends are perfection for each other, but do have struggles to get through.

    Imperfect Match is a feelgood romance that had me smiling at every turn! Corinne and Melanie pulled out all the stops bringing us a friend's to lovers romance that is full of emotion.

    Reid and Willow have been best friends for years. They have the type of relationship that just flows so smoothly. Knowing what the other is thinking before they say it, busting each other's chops constantly, but also being each other's biggest supporter. It's the perfect setup, until one day Willow realizes her fee

    Where to start with Reid and Willow?! They are fun, snarky friends who will make you die laughing at times and then cry during others.

    OML!! Amazing book. These two were sublimely perfect. Their friendship was humorous and the love they felt for each other was beautiful. It truly isn't one of those friends to lovers type of tropes that takes forever to get through. They had their own bumps in the road that made it slightly different, which made the book that much better.

    I voluntarily reviewed this book from the authors. It is definitely a one-click, and I implore you to do that RIGHT NOW!!

    Reid and Willow truly are an imperfect match and although they’re best friends, they couldn’t be more opposite. Willow is organized, a sucker for sappy television shows, her cooking is on point and

    They are best friends who live across the hall from each other and spend most of their time together. They are the most married, unmarried couple and yet they are just friends.
