Authors Laurelin Paige and Kayti McGee, writing together as Laurelin McGee, offer up their charming first collaboration, Miss Match. A standalone novel featuring a cheeky matchmaker and her businessman client, this romance is a flirty love story complete with plenty of laughs.

Andrea Grayson, called Andy, finds herself employee non grata in the corporate world following a bitter parting with her former boss. The last career she wants to pursue is the position of matchmaker for a businessman who is too lazy to find his own dates. And not just dates—he wants the matchmaker to find him a wife. However distasteful Andy finds the idea, she’s also fond of eating and is tired of allowing her sister, Lacy, to carry the financial load for both of them. So when Lacy presents the interview opportunity as a fait accompli, the least Andy can do is look into it.

Blake Donovan is far too busy to find a suitable wife. His Craigslist ad for a matchmaker seemed like a perfectly reasonable solution—until he discovers that most of the matchmaker applicants are hoping to snag the wife position. Then Andy Grayson strolls into his office with her crazy auburn hair, scrumptious scent and smart mouth. She’s the antithesis of everything he’s looking for in a woman. But she’s skilled and exciting, and suddenly he can’t imagine hiring anyone else.

Andy can’t believe a man as rich, successful and attractive as Blake needs help getting dates, never mind a wife. Then he opens his mouth—and she can’t imagine a woman alive willing to put up with him. But she needs the money (there's that whole liking-to-eat thing), so she takes the job. And that’s when the fun begins.

This isn’t your mother’s matchmaker story: the author duo Laurelin McGee has penned a hip, sizzling tale, and Andy and Blake’s mismatched personalities and red-hot mutual attraction take the reader on a wild ride. I found it difficult to put this book down; it made me smile, laugh out loud and root for this couple’s happy ending.
