All's fair in love...and matchmaking!
Sierra Kent doesn’t do love.
While she embraces the quaintness of her home town Love and delights in matchmaking her clients through her Internet dating agency Love Byte, she doesn’t trust her intuition when it comes to the one emotion that has repeatedly let her down.
City-slick Marc Fairley, CEO of LA's premier acquisition company, doesn’t have time for Love.
From the minute he enters the kitschy town he can’t wait to hotfoot back to LA with his deranged mother in tow.
Instead, he gets roped into the town's Love Fest hoopla, investigates the shady farmer his mom is engaged to, berates his butler for a mad crush on a brash Aussie waitress, and finds himself falling for the brazen red-head who continually baits him.
His life couldn't get any crazier.
Until he discovers in exacting revenge on his father and achieving his lifelong goals, he may lose the one thing he values most...
Can Sierra and Marc create enough sparks to send Love up in flames?
And prove that winning isn’t everything in the love stakes, it’s how you play the game.
Sierra Kent loves her job at the Love Byte dating agency. Marc Fairley works too hard at A-Corp, hoping to be the biggest, best companies. Sierra set Marc's mother up with her uncle in a small town. Marc doesn't like this. At all. And then the real stuff begins.
Nicola Marsh seriously knows how to write a romantic comedy! While there was no crying, there was some laughter, frustration, and nervousness during the reading of this one. My emotions were right with the characters, and I just wanted them to figure it all out! There were many levels or side-stories in this one, so it was easy to fall in love with the characters and really get into their stories. There aren't too many surprises, but I enjoyed the read the whole time.
Like I mentioned, there are many other stories. All the different characters are just that - different! They all have their secrets, back stories, personalities, and intricacies. From Olivia to Flo, Hank to William.. they're all great! Flo might have been one of my favorites.. haha. Belle was pretty great too. I was hoping things would happen for her in the end. Either way, I definitely enjoyed reading this one.
There were quite a few editing issues that I hope to see resolved. This one is self-published by the author instead of going through some of the traditional publishers she's worked with. The cover is super fun and, like with all Marsh novels, this one reads just like a movie.
Bottom line: Definitely check it out for love and laughs!
3.5 / 5 book sharks!
