Corinne Michaels and Melanie Harlow wrote the sweetest best friends to lovers story. I adored Imperfect Match.

Willow is thirty two years old and has a plan for her life. That plan is to take over the family match-making company and have a baby. The problem? Willow isn't great at match making and is single. The single part is no biggie, that's what sperm donors are for, but the job is a whopper. She's determined to prove she's capable of match-making so she takes the challenge to find

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.

Because why screw with a go

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.

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

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.

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. Oh, hi there Reid (pouts my lips, flicks my hair, licks my lips). I make the best pasta puttanesca #justsaying

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. But it was the sweet ...more

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.

To say that Willow and Reid will not have you laughing out loud or smiling to yourself would totally be not enough.

4.5 ⭐️’s. Again Corinne and Melanie wrote a book that flows together so well. There were no awkward or unnecessary parts.
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.

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 story 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 feeli

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.

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.
