Wingman rule number two: never reveal how much you want them.
Lex hates Gabi. Gabi hates Lex. But, hey, at least the hate is mutual, right? All Lex has to do is survive the next few weeks training Gabi in all the ways of Wingmen Inc. and then he can be done with her. But now that they have to work together, the sexual tension and fighting is off the charts. He isn’t sure if he wants to strangle her or throw her against the nearest sturdy table and have his way with her.
But Gabi has a secret, something she’s keeping from not just her best friend but her nemesis too. Lines are blurred as Lex becomes less the villain she’s always painted him to be…and starts turning into something more. Gabi has always hated the way she’s been just a little bit attracted to him—no computer-science major should have that nice of a body or look that good in glasses—but “Lex Luthor” is an evil womanizer. He’s dangerous. Gabi should stay far, far away.
Then again, she’s always wanted a little danger.
The Matchmaker’s Replacement will be one of the best contemporary romances you’ll read this year.
Rachel Van Dyken is one of my favorite authors. After reading the first book in the series, The Matchmake’rs Playbook, I was highly anticipating this sequel. I can happily say that it fulfilled my expectations.
Let’s start by stating the fact that I love a nerd and/or a geek hero. And Lex is intoxicating. Dialogue between him and the heroine was one of the best I’ve ever read. Ever. And that means something ‘cause I read a LOT. The critique I have is that I wanted more hot scenes. Sexual tension was so off the charts in the beginning that I wanted to see more of how that played in the bedroom.
I had such a good time reading The Matchmaker’s Replacement. Funny, sexy, well written. A page turner! What more could you possibly want?
I voluntarily reviewed an eARC of this book.
