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)
I really enjoyed listening to this book. I think it is one of those books better heard than read...especially with this reader. She is wonderful with great comedic timing and delivery. I laughed out loud listening to this on a plane the other day and several people turned to see what was so funny. Light and predictable but absolutely delightful anyway!
What I wanted was a funny, romantic comedy to listen to while I ran. I got what I wanted. Isn't it nice to get exactly what you expect out of a book? The narrator is very good, she does a pretty descent job of a male voice. And that's really the hard part of listenning to a book, isn't it? The voice you may have applied to a character is decided away from you, your imagination slightly handicapped by anothers impressions. But that's okay, the narrator did a splendid job of reading this story.
The story is cute, the characters are adorable (even the flat ones)and it is a great escape.
Loved it. Laughed out loud and enjoyed the writing and the narration was great. A romantic escape. Excellent dialog. I have 3 of her audios and loved them.
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.
