Annabelle is tired of being the lone failure in a family of overachievers. She's endured dead-end jobs and a broken engagement. 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.
With his money-green eyes and calculated charm, Heath Champion is the best sports agent in the country. He's wealthy, driven, and gorgeous, so why does he 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 his success: the perfect wife. And to make an extraordinary match, he needs an extraordinary matchmaker, right?
If Annabelle isn't careful, she just might find herself going heart-to-heart with the toughest negotiator in town, a man who's beginning to ask himself...exactly how perfect does perfect have to be?

"Captivating romance....Phillips has once again created a delightful page-turner. (Publishers Weekly)
"Dazzling contemporary romance." (Booklist)
A true chic lit
Romantic but not sickeningly sweet. several laugh out loud funny parts.
I enjoyed it so much, I would rewind and listen to dialogue over again.
If you enjoy romantic comedy, this is a must read.
P. S. My name is Deborah, my husband Tom did Not write this review.
I wasn't really expecting too much from this listen, but was surprised how much I enjoyed it. I liked the characters as well as the plot, though the ending is a bit perdictable. A very entertaining and enjoyable listen
Not a bad beach book, but I found this particular narrator's rendition annoying and distracting. She read men's words in a "deep" voice, like if you were reading to a child, and children's voices in a "tiny" voice; again, like you would read a bedtime story to a child, trying to do the voices yourself. The narrator of the Harry Potter novels carries this technique off well, but not this narrator. Read it instead.
This is a light hearted easy listen that will keep you entertained. Although it's terribly predictable, you will find yourself anticipating the end. The characters are just that good.
I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
Sweet characters, fun story. This is the first book by Phillips that I've listened to. It's a good listen. I am going to listen to more of her books.
I love books! Audiobooks take stories to the next level. I'm obsessed with Audible and will try to rate all of my books. Happy Listening! ;)
For me, this is the perfect example of how important the narrator is into the experience of an audiobook. This is a good book with an interesting and funny story with good romance but it was a bad audiobook. I really do not like Anna Fields as a narrator. She sounds too old for the type of story and heroine. Her male voices are good but it just sounds boring. Not much emotion, just a monotone long story. And that is devastating for me. This is a series but the narration is so bad I have not purchased another book by SEP nor Anna Fields. I would recommend to read the books in this series instead.
