Today we are thrilled to be sharing New York Times bestselling author Corinne Michaels & USA Today bestselling author Melanie Harlow’s sexy friends-to-lovers standalone romance, IMPERFECT MATCH
Rule number one for a professional matchmaker?
Don’t fall in love with your client.
I screwed that up when I fell for my best friend, Reid Fortino. He’s gorgeous, successful, and sexy as hell. I figured it would be easy to find him a match—and save the family business at the same time.
But the more time I spend attempting to find the perfect girl, the more I realize how much I want him for my own. What’s the harm if we give in for just one night?
I should have known that would never be enough.
Now I’m on the verge of losing my job and my heart.
We were an imperfect match from the start, but I don’t know how to let him go.

This is another collaboration from two great authors that is super fun and totally entertaining. It is always a pleasure to read their work and this one had me smiling and swooning at Willow and Reid’s story.
Willow and Reid have been neighbours for the last three years and also best friends. Willow’s parents own a dating agency and she is hoping to take over the reins when they retire. She is the quintessential golden child of loving parents, has a tree-hugging/hippy sister and she’s not wanting for anything except maybe a boyfriend. She just has to prove to them that she is capable of making a successful match but how can she do it when she can’t even find one for herself?
Reid is a successful businessman, happily single and having Willow as his best buddy who cooks for him and keeps him company means he doesn’t really need a girlfriend, right? But when she asks him for a favour suddenly, their uncomplicated relationship becomes complicated. He either has to walk away or make some hard choices if he wants a happy ending with her.
This friends-to-lovers story will tickle your heart. Told in dual points of view, Reid and Willow’s tale is a perfect balance of light-hearted romance mixed in with a little bit of drama to spice it up and not make it a boring read. Willow’s very likeable persona makes her the perfect wife material. Her main goal; however, is in conflict with Reid’s future plans and here lies the problem because with their new relationship she has to make a difficult choice. I totally understood where she was coming from and sympathized with her dilemma and was hoping that she stood firm in her choice which she dealt with in the end, no compromises.
Although Reid is a charming character and the ideal boyfriend, his commitment issues are the biggest stumbling block to their happy ever after. Willow and Reid’s romance is full of funny banter, quirky family members and although the storyline is predictable, this is a very enjoyable read and hard to put down.
