Summary: Annabelle’s endured dead-end jobs, a broken engagement . . . even her hair’s a mess! But that’s going to change now that she’s taken over her late grandmother’s matchmaking business. All Annabelle has to do is land the Windy City’s hottest bachelor as her client, and she’ll be the most sought-after matchmaker in town.
Hate-to-love relationship is definitely one of my favorite tropes.
What I love the most about this book was the heroine—Annabelle. Only because she doesn’t have the “lip biting” ticks or clumsy or saying the most famous line we know by heart “I’m such a klutz”
Annabelle, thirty-one years old, no stable career, and single.*cue to Friends theme song*. Her mom keeps badgering her to go back to school to become an accountant. Added her successful brothers who won’t hesitant to rub their success in her face and love to give her a hard time. Despite their own unique way to show how much they actually care about Annabelle, they knew when to be in Annabelle’s sides when needed.
Meanwhile the hero—Heath—in this book was so frustrating I feel like hitting his head to knock some sense into it and I’m not even a violent person. Oh boy, do I love when he was grovelling.
I find the secondary couples meh. I mostly skimmed their chapters. Eventho later we know why they’re important to the plot. It doesn’t bother me that much tho.
Can’t wait to read SEP’s other book!
I gave this book
