A Matchless Romance by Christi Barth – a Review
Tabitha Bell is the face of Chicago’s premiere matchmaking service. At least, she hopes it will be someday, once business really takes off. What she needs is more clients, so when she meets a sexy gamer in need of help, it’s the perfect opportunity.
His discomfort talking to women almost cost Drew Watson his job. He’d be happy holed up in his office, designing blockbuster video games, but his boss considers talking to investors a nonnegotiable requirement. Who better than a matchmaker to teach him how to be comfortable around the opposite sex? Trouble is, Drew wants to get more than comfortable with Tabitha, while she’s determined to keep their relationship all business.
Soon Tabitha learns that beneath the geek-chic hoodie lies six feet of sexy physique–and the more time she spends with Drew, the more she appreciates his brainy brand of charm. Will she succumb to his sweet-but-nerdy charm offensive or will it be game over before he can win her heart?
A Matchless Romance by Christi Barth is the 4th and final book in her wonderful Aisle Bound series. This book belongs to Tabitha, who runs the matchmaking part of A Fine Romance store that Ivy added to her wedding planning business. Tabitha meets Drew, a computer geek at the start. Drew, who creates computer games, and hires Tabitha to help him learn how to act in front of women. Seems Drew continually puts his foot in his mouth when working with some woman, and when he insults a high dollar client, he is in danger of losing the job of his lifetime.
Tabitha normally does not handle teaching someone how to act, she is more into finding couples to match. But something about Drew, besides his super athletic looks, and body; makes Tabitha accept the job. What follows is humorous attempt to change Drew, bringing in many of our favorite characters from the earlier books; such as Ivy, Mira, Daphne, Gib, Ben, Milo, Sam, just to name a few. Early on Drew’s constant mishaps were funny, and at times embarrassing. But despite that, Tabitha saw the effect of Drew’s good looks had on other women, as well as finding herself becoming attracted to him. Drew, who was attracted to Tabitha from the start, was literally blind to how other woman saw him. Neither Drew nor Tabitha realized how the other felt.
This was a sweet and at times humorous romance, which did have some steamy parts later on. As much as I did enjoy this quick read, I felt that this was not as good as the first three books. But that might just be the couples in the first were awesome. Great series by Christi Barth, which if you have not read, you should do so. It is a fun and romantic series.
