Imperfect Match by Corinne Michaels and Melanie Harlow

A Review by Wendy
 4.5 We're Friends Not Lovers, Right Stars
* * * * 1/2 
Spoiler Free
Leave it to Corinne Michaels and Melanie Harlow to write a delicious Friends to Lovers tale. These authors stepped up and gave us a story which was easy to read, had enough depth to hit us in the gut and then take us to the Happy Ending we all want.

When Willow is confronted by her mother with the news she is thinking of selling the successful matchmaker company, it is a bit of a shock. Her mother is concerned with handing it over to Willow and her sister because Willow hasn't shown her matchmaking skills. She has been working at the company for three years and unfortunately, she hasn't hit the mark with any of the attempts she has made.

It is during this conversation, Willow's best friend shows up.

Reid is Willow's next door neighbor and they have fallen into a pattern of having meals together, watching certain shows together, and always having each other back when it is needed...Besties. Of course, Reid is the perfectly handsome guy who has women desperate to be with him. Only he has no desire for a real relationship. Marriage or kids, not for him. Especially not after the trainwreck his parents had. Nope, being besties with Willow is perfect... He has all the connections he needs.

So when Willow's mom had nailed her to the truth of how she spends all of her time with Reid instead of opening herself up to finding her own match, having Reid walking in at that moment did not help. Instead, Reid senses something is up and cannot resist playing Willow's mom for all its worth. Reid allows the mother to question him about his love life and how Willow's friendship might be in the way...and as the game continues with Willow giving Reid daggers, the challenge is laid down perfectly manipulated by the mom...

With Willow proving, she is ready to take over the company by finding the perfect match for Reid...Reid is saying no, no... and then Willow steps up and says, yes she will do it.

Well, now that it's done, what the hell was she thinking... Reid isn't pleased as he has no desire to marry and have kids...And all of this started because Willow wants kids and her mother wants her grandchildren asap...

This is the setup and oh what a ride we take...we have two people who really are best friends and then they are more...but the hiccup is the difference of what they both want... He wants things to stay easy, no marriage or kids and she wants kids now before she misses her opportunity.

As I said from the start- this story was delicious and fun. Full of heart, swoony times, and enough angst to keep you reading. There are wonderful secondary characters who may get their own book/romance, hint hint.
