4.5 star Review Different With You (Matchbox #1)by E. H. Lyon

For the last few years I have been gravitating to single parent stories, add in that it is set in a small town and I couldn’t wait to dive in. I loved Different With You by new to me author E.H.Lyon.

Recently I was lucky enough to read my first E.H. Lyon book and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I enjoyed it so much I one clicked this book and book two which will bring me up to date in the Matchbox series.

How many people can say they solidified their relationship thanks to a Moose!

EH Lyon kicks off her Matchbox series with Different with You, a book about a sort-of second chance in more ways than one. Abby Call and Lucas Kade knew each other in high school and from the neighborhood. A brief interaction between them when young sticks in their memories even as both their lives take them in different directions. Now they are older and back in their home town--both divorced. It doesn't take much for the sparks to ignite and a relationship to blossom.

Along the way, we meet dif

Different with You is book one in a small-town romance from E.H. Lyon. This is the story of finding love after divorce. It reads like a second chance romance but isn’t.
Abby Call and Lucas Kade knew each other in high school and were family friends. Memories of a stolen moment in their youth have ignited a spark between them. Now both are older and back in their hometown-both divorced. It doesn’t take much for a relationship to follow.

This is the first book I have read by this author but it certainly won’t be the last because after reading Different With You I was left wondering why Ms Lyon has not crossed my radar before now. I love small town romance and I love single parent stories so as soon as I read the blurb i was excited for Dr Lucas Kade and Dr Abby Call’s story and as you can see it didn’t disappoint.

I simply adored this book and can’t wait for more from the Matchbox series. This is a new author to me and I loved her writing style. She gave us a wonderful storyline which flowed and kept me engrossed in the story from start to finish. As for the characters, they were very well defined and felt like family. This series is about a group of guys who were besties as youngsters and stayed close as adults and this first story is about Dr. Lucas Kade.

A good sweet romance as a start to the series. This is the first book I've read by this author and it definitely won’t be the last because I am going to make sure I read the whole series. Especially Leo and Jess's story. I'm kinda sad that their book is not next, but we'll still get their story. I can't wait!

On to Lucas and Abby's story, they kind of kissed in high school but it didn't really pan out. 15 years later, both newly divorced and back in their hometown. Even now as adults, their chemi

Dr. Lucas Kade (humans) & Dr. Abby Call (fur babies) knew each other in high school, and even had a moment but then they moved on to college so it's 15 years later before they come face to face again. They both move home after their marriages tank, and Lucas has an adorable tiny human son as well. Circumstances and/or fate has them coming face to face again, and lo & behold, that spark is still there with it getting stronger the more they interact.

Lucas, a part time father has moved back to his home town after a divorce and taken over a retiring doctor’s practice. Abby had moved back to her hometown after her divorce and taken over the local veterinarian’s practice. Lucas and Abby had a moment back when they were young and never gave up their feelings for the other. This interesting and exciting romance between Abby and Lucas was full of trials, fun, a son a dog and a moose along with meddling parents. Fun read

This book was fun, flirty, sexy, and sweet. Abby and Lucas are childhood friends who are now both back home and both post divorce. They reconnect and feel the spark they felt when they were younger. Although their marriages didn’t work what they have together feels different and better. Their story is a good one. I love these two together.

Great start to a new series! The author brings strong well developed characters in Lucas and Abby as well as the supporting characters. She does a great job developing their relationship and building a strong chemistry as she shows there is life and love after divorce. It's well written with descriptive scenes , moves fluidly and is a sweet read.

Abby and Lucas knew each other in high school but were never involved until they both returned home after both divorced. They catch up and before long tings start to change. Could they both get a second chance at love?

Great Find! In her debut effort, Ms. Lyon has put together a great beginning to a five-book series. Her characters are real, situations are relatable, and I had difficulty putting the book down.

Both Lucas and Abby are doctors; she a Vet, him medical. There is excellent dialog navigating life after divorce. I enjoyed the meddling parents, juvenile at times friends, and his son. Her secondary characters are great, and I hope we got more of their stories soon.

I am looking forward to the next book.

I read the first half, skimmed the second half. So much emphasis placed on a single high school make out session. Nothing about it captured my attention.

Her stories take you on a light and bantering ride until the very end, when your couple finds their happily ever after. Along the way, there may be the occasional emotional twist thrown in and the essential appearance of a bottle of whiskey. E.H. has a thing for witty women, determined well-dressed ...more
