Genre: Adult (Contemporary Romance)
Date Published: November 1, 2014
Publisher: Orange Door Press

(Summary contains spoilers if you have not yet read book #1 The Husband Maker)

It’s been six months since Charlotte and Kyle broke up, and the Husband Maker strikes again. Kyle is officially engaged, while Charlotte is still nursing a broken heart.

In an effort to get Charlotte out of her rut, she and her best friend decide it’s time for some good old-fashioned matchmaking. While Aleena arranges for Charlotte to meet up with a handsome Scottish tourist, Charlotte gets her two best friends together. But when sparks start to fly between Aleena and Angus, Charlotte is left feeling more alone that ever–at least until the charming Scotsman becomes more than just a safe, rebound guy and teaches her that maybe, just maybe, she can dare to open her heart again.

The Match Maker is the second book in The Husband Maker series by Karey White. Poor Charlotte has kept her husband making streak alive. Remember Flynn? The handsome guy visiting from Scotland? Well, Aleena thinks he should be Charlotte's rebound guy. Flynn is perfect, and I love the relationship that grows between them. I'm still Team Angus all the way, but Flynn is pretty irresistible in his own way. The characters feel real, and it's easy to lose yourself within their story. The Match Maker takes us to Scotland and back and leaves us anxiously awaiting more! It will be impossible to wait until Spring for the next book!

The ARC of The Match Maker by Karey White was kindly provided to me by I'm a Reader Not a Writer for review. The opinions are my own.

“What were you thinkin’?” he asked.

I shook my head. “You don’t want to know.”

Flynn raised an eyebrow. “Why wouldn’t I want to know?”

I shrugged.

“Ah, so you’re making me guess?”

“I doubt you could guess what I was thinking.”

“Can I try?”

I laughed. “Sure, you can try.”

“And you’ll tell me if I’m right?”

I knew he would never guess what I was thinking, so what was the harm in him trying? “Sure. I’ll tell you if you’re right.”

“Well, you’re frownin’ but you say you’re not angry, so it must be something you’re fretting over. Am I on the right path?”

I shrugged and nodded a little at the same time. “Keep going. This might be very enlightening.”

Flynn kept his expression serious as he looked at me, but it was clear from his eyes that he was smiling. “You said you’ve just been heartbroken and maybe you’re not sure you want to date yet.”

I opened my eyes wide and Flynn bit back his smile.

“And here you are with me. And you’re finding me endlessly fascinating and you’re starting to wonder how you’re going to spend the day with me without falling madly in love.”

A laugh that sounded more like a snort escaped my mouth. Flynn was now grinning.

“How’d I do?” he asked.

“Pretty good. Until you got to the falling in love with you part. I was actually trying to figure out how to make sure you knew this wasn’t a date date. If you know what I mean.”

“You want me to know this is just a date, not a date date?”

“I’m thinking of it more like an appointment instead of a date.” I couldn’t believe I was saying this to him, but we were both smiling, and he didn’t seem the least bit upset. I suddenly felt comfortable and calm. He had practically read my mind and now I didn’t have to worry, because he knew exactly where my head was.

“An appointment, eh? Isn’t that more like a haircut? Or a filling in a tooth?”

I laughed again. “Maybe appointment is a bad choice of words.”

“Let’s just call it a play date. Like kids. That way we can have fun with no worries, and if I feel like it, I can pull your hair—”at this point he tugged on my ponytail “—or wrestle you to the ground.”

Now I raised both eyebrows.

“Ya know. Like kids do when they’re playing.”

“Okay, it’s a play date,” I agreed. “Not an appointment. But wrestling me to the ground is strictly forbidden. And you don’t need to worry. I’m not ready to fall in love with anyone right now. Not even a cute guy with a great accent.”

“Ah, she’s fallin’ already.” He bumped against me with his shoulder and we both smiled as we leaned on the rail and looked back at the silvery city.
