    Let me start by saying this I admit I'm a sexist and I read romance novels mostly for the hero As long as the hero is worth it and the heroine isn't a pain in the a I'm happyThat said I have to state that the best thing about Match Me If You Can was Annabelle and not Heath She was just adorable in her quirkiness the kind of friend I cherish in RL She loved Heath so I wanted her to have him Not because he was to die for but because he was the one for her Seriously I spent a large portion of the book frustrated with his blindness and wanting to shake some sense into him In the end I was thrilled to see him voicing my feelings brilliantly I'm sorry it took me so long to get my head straight but as you've been quick to point out I'm an idiot Yes you were Heath Obviously that simple statement wasn't enough to win Annabelle right back She needed deserved the whole package and not the scraps Heath was willing to give at 1st so kudos to her for sticking to her principles until he finally proved to be worthy of herThis was only my 2nd book by SEP but I've been told she likes to make her heroes do some serious groveling before conquering their heroines back Groveling scenes are complicated to me because they usually come after some ugly and almost unforgiveable behavior by the hero so I was happy to see that Heath's actions weren't that damaging and unforgiveable The usually ruthless and goal oriented man was just clueless when it came to wooing Annabelle which only showed how much she was important to himI loved the cast of secondary characters all of them but especially little Pippy and her fascination with cell phones as they added an interesting layer to the story and helped me understand Heath and Annabelle's personalities better Their scenes were great at showing not telling what made Heath and Annabelle tick and there was some great writing there IMHOAll in all this was a very enjoyable read light funny and downright hilarious at times A straight contemporary novel with neither sudden plot twists nor emotionally draining angst a lovely heroine a nice but emotional slow hero and a bunch of secondary characters that didn't feel like fillers I can't say SEP has become one of my favorite authors yet but she's on my radar and I'll definitely give her another try

    💙💙I loved reading this one but I have to say I LOVED listening to it even I am such a huge fan of SEP and this series I’m looking forward to listening to the new releases coming next month 💙💙😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊And the magic continues Though I have to admit I wasn’t sure if I was going to love this one as much as the other I wondered how SEP would pull it off since these two characters were not part of the immediate Chicago Stars family but she did it I LOVED ITI’m going to try to keep this one short and sweetIn Match Me If You Can we meet Heath He is Kevin Tucker’s agent He was sexy had a killer smile and dressed to kill He was also known as the Python Having just about everything he wanted having met all the goals he set for himself all that was left for him to do is find the perfect wife Enter Annabelle Or as Pippi would say Belle Annabelle will do what’s needed to keep Heath as her client with her match making company But one little misunderstanding involving a Princess Party creates a bit of a bump in the road for the both of them Sweet Pippi Tucker was Heath’s nemesis He wouldn’t admit to it but he loved the little girl It would be a secret that Pippi whispers in his ear that will make her his little angelHeath was certainly hard to please With every perfect woman Annabelle handed over to him came one rejection after another Slow to realize what he had right in front of him Heath ends up making a mistake that might not be fixable Like I said I wasn’t sure if I was going to love this one as much as the others But I did It was fun to catch up with Phoebe Molly The ladies book club was a hoot too I loved going back to Wind Lake Something sexy always goes on in one of those cottages ❤I enjoyed meeting Bodie Heath’s driver partner The side story with him and Portia was a great offset to the main plot Their story was just as sweet and sexy tooThis is such an amazing series and I will highly recommend it to anyone who already loves Susan Elizabeth Phillips writing or to anyone who has yet to read anything from her

    5 STARS“If I could put my brain in her body the world would be mine for the taking” OH MY GOD Why I did not read this earlier I do not understand This book was the perfect mix of romancebanter and heart pounding moments I loved the dialogue between Annabelle and Heath I loved Annabelle's sassy wit I loved Heath's sexy arrogant as hell attitude Basically I loved everything about itHeath Champion aka The Python is Chicago's sexiest bachelor who needs a perfect wife by his 35th birthday Having already hired Portia Powers he refuses to hire Annabelle as well But he was pleasantly surprised by Annabelle's tenacious attitude and her earnestness and decides to give her a shotAnnabelle is ecstatic that she landed Heath as a client With overbearing parents and brothers who are settled and happily married Annabelle is the odd one out She is determined to prove to her parents that she is successful as well All she has to do is find Heath a wifeI loved watching their relationship progressing Heath makes Annabelle sit through every new introduction between him and potential candidates was highly entertaining Her quick wit and humour amused me to no ends Unlucky for Annabelle because every candidate she proposed was rejected And after all the one who Heath has all the delicious chemistry is with AnnabelleBut although Annabelle is fun sharp witted and smart she's isn't sophisticated or classy enough His idea of a dream wife is a elegant and sweet lady who will reflect every accomplishment in his life“He grinned and right then it occurred to him that he hadn't enjoyed himself so much with a woman in a very long time If Annabelle Granger were a few inches taller a hell of a lot sophisticated better organized less bossy and inclined to worship at his feet she'd have made a perfect wife”But Heath finds there is a difference between what he thinks he wants to what he really needsOverall it was an amazing read This was my first SEP book and it most certainly won't be my last

    45 Perfect for You Stars and right then it occurred to him that he hadn't enjoyed himself so much with a woman in a very long time Fun fun fun A non stop romantic funfest from start to finish where Annabelle Granger a quirky thirty something matchmaker with a fledgling business a colourful wardrobe and a big heart meets Heath Champion a too handsome NFL top agent with a goal in mind marrying his ideal woman aka everything Annabelle is not Will our resourceful matchmaker be able to find her for him?Not an easy fit considering a battalion of nosy relatives stubborn ageing clients several bad hair days shark on stilettos competitors and most of all a potential Mr Right who hasn't realised yet that in life what you think you want doesn't always match with what you really needA writing that just keeps you turning the pages snappy humour sizzling chemistry brilliant dialogues a very amusing but not excessively intrusive secondary romance an endearing cast of characters from previous and next books well and lively crafted just as much as the leading couple Annabelle and Heath both have likeable strong personalities and all their interactions from sparring to teasing to flirting are a hoot Seeing them first skirting around each other all business like and then gloating while they got entangled in their own unexpected emotions made for a wild romp punctuated by some head shaking at their stubbornness frequent laughing out loud moments and rewarding sighing at their cuteness but don't tell Heath this last oneRomantic comedy doesn't get much better than thisBuddy read with Jill

    I often have mixed feelings about SEP books but this one really made me uncomfortable Some takeaway messages• To start your book off with a bang make your heroine an insecure screw up and make sure you mess up her clothes and make her late for an important appointment• It's ok if your family denigrates and insults you as long as they love you you of course being a woman• Men who work too hard have to fall in love and they'll learn to scale back women who work too hard have to have their careers destroyed their sexual preference for dominant men confirmed and be forced to appear in public in an embarrassing physical predicament in order to reform but of course we'll take it all back in a feel good epilogue• Men don't like to read the rare odd one who does can't be in the all women's book club because he'd throw off the dynamic• You shouldn't worry too much about your clothes girls but reading about them is definitely worth your time• All girl children like princess parties especially when all the dresses are pinkYeah I know it's supposed to be funny But so much of the humor rests on gender stereotypes that I just didn't find myself laughing

    Match Me If You Can is about Heath the wealthy sports agent who wants the perfect wife Of course he's too busy to look for this perfect woman and instead has two different match making agencies in search of her Annabelle is the owner of one of those agencies and she's determined to find him the perfect woman Heath's demands on Annabelle created a lot of fun banter Having Annabelle attend all the introductions between him and the potential candidates built lively conversation between the two of them At this point in the story she had fallen for him and of course he was totally clueless to her feelings towards him Match Me If You Can is part of the Chicago Stars series and while it's book 6 in the series I was able to read it just fine even though I've only read book 1 Don't let the series numbers stop you from giving it a try I enjoyed listening to this audio while I painted our fence It helped pass the hours My kids thought it was funny the only place I ended up with paint was on my ear from pulling out my headphonesSERIES And the author has announced she is making another book
