About the Book:
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.
Why does the wealthy, driven, and gorgeous sports agent Heath Champion need a matchmaker, especially a red-haired screw-up like Annabelle Granger? True, she's entertaining, and she does have a certain quirky appeal. But Heath is searching for the ultimate symbol of success -- the perfect wife. And to make an extraordinary match, he needs an extraordinary matchmaker, right?
Soon everyone in Chicago has a stake in the outcome, and a very big question: When the determined matchmaker promised she'd do anything to keep her star client happy . . . did she mean anything? If Annabelle isn't careful, she just might find herself going heart-to-heart with the toughest negotiator in town.
This was the very first Susan Elizabeth Phillips romance I ever read. I don’t know if that’s why it became one of my romance favorites, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.
I enjoyed this book for its humor and romance/love story. There was a great balance between the two that made it a quick read. The antics and relationships between all the characters are what created the quirkiness and humor. There is some heat in the romance area, but not continually throughout the story.
I enjoyed Annabelle’s attitude especially when dealing with Heath as a client of hers. Could Heath really be that vain? There was never a dull moment in the book and it had a very good ending. I also enjoyed the matching making job outlook. Something new I had never read before.
I would definitely recommend this book to all readers of romance. Don’t let the sports theme turn you off, it isn’t the full basis for the story.
