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)
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 really enjoyed the plot of this novel and the characters were delightful. The narrator was pleasant enough until she tried to do Heath's voice and it just sounded silly. It was like a child trying to sound like a grown up.. melodramatic and overdone. Otherwise it was a very enjoyable read even if you typically don't like romance.
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.
I LOVED this book. I truly enjoy SEP's humor and her characters. Even though the ending may be predictable, the journey she takes to that end is not, and that is what is so intriguing about her stories. "Match Me" is my first read of her books, and since then I have read 2 others, and enjoyed them as much.
I hope that Audible will continue to provide her books in the unabridge format. Anna Fields is an amazing narrator. So often I forget that she's doing all the voices. It's only after hearing some others that I really appreciate how good she really is.
