One blazing relational bond formed by two fiery lovers. And a new element just joined the formula.

Chemistry calls it covalence. Shakespeare named it the “marriage of true minds.” Historically speaking, Nairne never liked the impractical notion of marriage, and Zed never thought he’d live to see the day when tying the knot was even an option. After a decade of enta

Love and happy endings are never easy and no one knows that better than Zed and Nairne. They've battled themselves and their own evolving emotions, they've confronted others who were looking to tear them apart, they overcame criminal entities, guns to the face, and hospitalizations... they've had to face more obstacles than most. And yet, their love not only survived, it thrived. Each fight won was a testament to how great their love was and nothi
This was a thoroughly enjoyable series to devour; and I really enjoyed my experience doing so. It is a brilliantly fabulous story about acceptance, love and embracing who you truly are. It deals brilliantly with disability, sexuality, love and true companionship. I really felt the love between these two and absolutely adored the two of them together and thoroughly enjoyed watching their relationship develop and unfold. It really is a great series that I would wholeheartedly recommend! If you're ...more

This has been such a fun romance series to binge read when I needed that palate cleanse from my every day thrillers and historical fiction reads. They’re A Match was just the book I needed after some heavy reads recently.

If you’re looking for a fun, quick romance with a kickass strong lead, with both witty humor and all the steam, look no further!

Nairne and Zed have a love that is fierce, and this third book really gave me the closure for their relationship, as we see them overcome obstacles tha

4.5 rounded up
Steam: 🔥🔥🔥

It's no secret I'm a fan of this series and the final book did not disappoint. I love Chloe's writing and I can't wait to read her next book!

Things I liked about this book:

~As always I loved the characters in this series. They all have their individual charm and I love how inclusive they are. Nairne is such highly intelligent and very independent female lead that brings so much to this series. She never let's fear or her disability stop her from anything she has her mind

Soooo I have to DNF at 6% because I can't handle the little things that the author is getting wrong about Scotland. I'm just not in the right mindset to ignore these. ...more
I haven't read a series about the same two characters in YEARS!!! And when I started, I wasn't aware that's what I'd signed up for. I think I liked the first book okay, and then it kinda totally goes downhill from there.

The second and third - and especially this third - books were completely unnecessary. Yeah, the first one ends in a cliffy(ish) but it absolutely didn't need to. And so I found that they were both filllllled with details. Awkward conversation and dialogues. That could so easily

What a conclusion to the Tough Love series!! WOW!

I have enjoyed reading all three of the books about Zed and Nairne. I don't know if it's because I read this book most recently or because I know the characters so well at this point, but I feel like this one is my favorite. We get to watch Zed and Nairne really settle into life as a couple. Being a wife myself for over 15 years there was something just so sweet in reading about

Great ending to the Tough Love series. Nairne and Zed have come so far together across the series, and Nairne's life has changed so much. Love, an expanding family, maybe marriage? They're a Match is exactly what I was expecting - a little bit of drama/suspense, a lot of love between Nairne, Zed and their family/friends, and a happy ending that they fight for together.

Very happy to see an upcoming spin-off for Lucas and Elodie - I am SO CURIOUS as to what is happening between these 2, why all th

**Thank you to the author for sending me this book. All thoughts are my own**

Ahhh, the wrapping up of a great series! I read and enjoyed books 1 & 2 this summer and surprisingly these books just got better as the series progressed. I usually enjoy the first book in a series the most because there tends to be all the building up to the relationship. Chloe wrote so much into the development and journey of Nairne and Zed that all of it felt like it was building on itself.

4.5 stars for the final book in this amazingly steamy, romantic, suspenseful series. This is my favourite of the 3 books I enjoyed seeing how much their relationship has grown since book 1 and how much Nairne and Zed have changed because of each other. this book did not lack the steam or suspense and it was a great closing for this trilogy! I can't wait for the spin offs ...more

A delightful conclusion to the Tough Love series. This book definitely had the least amount of suspense within the trilogy, but I loved how much humor was packed into it. While there wasn't as much action in "They're a Match" as there was in the other two books, I loved how Liese still managed to sneak in a touch of spy thriller. I also adored the proposal scene and how much this book set the stage for Lucas and Elodie's spinoff (I can't wait to start reading it)! Overall, "They're a Match" was ...more
They're a Match is the conclusion of Nairne & Zed's story in Chloe Liese's Tough Love series that follows the couple after the events of She's a Spitfire & I don't want to say much more than that!

This series was so good! I love the characters and how they handle their relationship. I thought the character growth through the series was great. It was such a satisfying conclusion to the overall story. It is rare that I feel all three books in a trilogy are equally strong, but I thought the author d

In keeping with the previous two books in this trilogy, Nairne and Zed had a lot of joyful moments with a touch of trouble mixed into their lives throughout. It was sweet to watch their love grow - both physically and emotionally. I loved seeing them as a couple as well as the times with their family and friends. And then when the baby came it was even sweeter.

I don't know that this story needed two sources of angst - I imagine either the one with Nairne's coworker or her post-birth experien

Love this book!

So by book 3 in the Love’s Tough series, I have called in love with Zed and Nairne. I feel like they are family and the end of this series is bittersweet. I loved the action, suspense and romance in this book. As always, Chloe Liese manages to write a delightful book while advocating for justice, equality, human rights and love. No matter where her books take place or the cultural influences found within her characters (Scottish, French, American, Italian, Swedish), Chloe manages

Book Review ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ They’re A Match is the third and final book in the Tough Love series and I’m already having withdrawals from the epic relationship Nairne and Zed share. This book is filled with drama, love, passion, plot and a little mystery. Chloe Liese writes strong characters, witty banter, and powerful emotions. I will miss this series but look forward to the spin offs!

Our beloved Nairne and Zed went in it to win it!!

More laugh, tears, smiles and amazing moments to learn and think about the awesome messages hidden in this marvelous books.

Family bonds on point. Some plot twists to make things more wild and definetly waiting (and hoping) for my baby Teo's book.

Off to read about Elodie and Lucas!!

Jamie squawked and arched his back. I lifted up my shirt and gave him my breast, which he latched onto hungrily. Then he turned on his side, banging my chest with his fist like always. “I’ve told you, mate, smacking my tit doesn’t make the milk come any faster.” I kissed his mohawk of fuzzy, dark hair. “But you’re stubborn, just like your da.”
