    Reid and Willow- best friends to lovers to how do they make it work when they want different things.... Melanie Harlow and Corinne Micheals do a great job writing these couple.

    This book makes you laugh and feel good and breaks your heart a bit as Willow and Reid find a way to happily ever after. All the characters are great throughout the book! I loved Aspen Willow’s sister and their relationship as well as Reid and his brother Reid.

    I couldn’t put this book down. It flowed really well and it’s

    There is nothing like, two very talented authors coming together to create such a whimsical romance. This collaboration will go down in history. Melanie Harlow and Corrine Michaels are a majestic duo that are so in sync with one another, that I could not tell who wrote what. Imperfect Match flowed at the most perfect pace and set the tone of what a friends to lovers romance should be. Both main characters were astounding people that showed growth throughout the story. Being a light read, there w ...more

    Imperfect Match is a friends to lovers story and yet it is so much more. What an amazing story, that had me riveted from the first chapter until the last. I was hooked and had difficulty putting the book down. Melanie Harlow and Corinne Michaels together are an excellent writing team. I have no idea where one author ended and the other took over such was the flow of the writing.

    Imperfect Match was a sexy, funny, angsty, emotional standalone friends-to-lovers romance, and I absolutely loved it! Corinne Michaels and Melanie Harlow are a phenomenal co-writing duo, and I adored their writing style and the storyline and characters they created. Imperfect Match was fun, engaging, and I didn’t want it to end!

    The storyline was fantastic. Corinne Michaels and Melanie Harlow exceeded my expectations, and I completely fell in love with Reid and Willow’s story. Friends

    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

    Reid and Willow and such a fun couple. 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. Reid and Willow have some big issues to work through to get there and it doe ...more

    Oh my gosh you all.... I saw this cover and couldn't wait to dive right in. Corinne Michaels and Melanie Harlow have done it again! To say that Willow and Reid will not have you laughing out loud or smiling to yourself would totally be not enough. The witty comments, the adorableness (probably not even a word) but these two had my heart from the start and kept me turning the pages. I absolutely love the writing style of Melanie and Corinne together the characters they create had me head over hee ...more

    One of my favourite troupes is best friends to lovers and this book was no different.

    Reid and Willow are best friends who would do anything for each other. When Willow is tasked with finding Reid's perfect match, things start to get fuzzy.

    To me, their attraction wasnt obvious in the beginning but as the story moved, it definitely grew.

    This was a first for me from these authors but I will definitely be checking out more of their work!

    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.

    A fun, light hearted friends to lovers romance. I enjoyed the banter and the side characters (Aspen especially!) and I will admit at Times I wanted to shake both Willow and Reid, it was overall an enjoyable read.

    I just finished my advanced copy of Corinne Michaels and Melanie Harlows Imperfect match and what a great read it was! It's a best friends to lovers book you need to read! Reid and Willow’s friendship was perfect, lots of sarcasm and ribbing. To watch them go from best friend kind of love to romantic love was amazing. They truly are the perfect couple. You are going to fall in love with Reid as soon as you meet him. He’s tall, dark and handsome and he’s italian, can it get any better than that? ...more

    Imperfect Match by Corinne Michaels and Melanie Harlow is a standalone rom/com at its finest written by this great author duo.
    Reid Fortino and Willow Hayes are best friends, no they are bestest of best friends. They spend a lot of time together, they get each other and they're like an old married couple minus the physical attraction, strictly platonic.
    Willow works in the family's matchmaking business, but she's lacking the intuition she needs. She's good at business, her love life is a disaster

    I won an ARC copy of this so I decided to just dive in. I’m so glad I did! I loved the storyline and I fell in love with the characters. I think I liked Aspen even more than Willow. I would love to see Aspen get a story of her own! Not only was it steamy but I was gripped from beginning to end. Of course the ending was predictable which is why I gave it four stars but the journey to get there was awesome. I hope to read more of Melanie and Corinne’s books together!

    Reid just really appreciates his woman's assets:
    “You’ve got a cute butt.”
    I meet his eyes in the mirror. “Thanks.”
    “Come back to bed and let me get my hands on it again.”
    Reid takes some things very seriously, “good, because there is nothing funny about my ***k. It is a very serious, very large, very important thing.” I liked this book, I loved Reid.
