I really enjoyed going back in time and learning how Brook and Luke met. It gave great insight in what drove them to be the way they are. I understand why Brook was so worried about getting involved with Luke.
The narration was awesome as always. The story sucked me in and I enjoyed every bit of it!
As always Lindzee delivers a great clean story. I love high school romance. It is sweet how hard Luke works to gain Brooks friendship.
Looking forward to my next Lindzee Armstrong book!

This short book was good listening! It involves a 16 yr old disillusioned girl, who has no interest in boys because of her parents divorce. She meets a boy and they decide to become 'just friends'. But sometimes, that's really a hard deal to keep! Wish it were a little longer, but liked it very much!
I am addicted to audiobooks. It makes my 1 hour (each way) commute go by without me becoming an agressive driver. lol
I liked the other books in this series and went back and got this one, the beginning of their story (Brooke/Luke). It was great to get a little bit of background on their relationship. Really enjoying this story. It was nice to find out where the rules came from and how they were created. It helped to understand a bit more about Brooke, although you don't need this to enjoy the other books. Lindzee does a great job of telling their story.
This short story was a nice, easy story to listen to. I liked how the author put in the family problems and how the main character was dealing with it. So true in today's world. The narrator, Tiffany Williams made this story so much fun and so easy to listen to, giving each character their own voice. I'm looking forward to listening to the rest of the series.

When I first read the overview , i thought it might be a sweet valley high, kinda book but immediately the narrator ( Tiffany) caught my attention and kept it!
It was mature and I greatly appreciate the content.
Lindzee , I really enjoy your writing and this book is super cute and fun. I look forward to listening to the others. You've got me hooked !

It was discovering how a girls sad family troubles worked in her life to cause her to fear relationships and see her growing relationship and feelings for a nice guy- even if she works hard to shove him in the friend category.
Luke- he starts out as a typical, flirty boy who is interested in a girl and tries too hard to get her attention. But then his generous and selfless spirit surfaces when he sets his own wants aside to be a friend when a friend is what is needed.
Probably the meet up. I chuckled over the fumbling of the boys and the icy behavior of the girl.
I did chuckle a few times over the youthful antics and was sad over the way the dad really blew it and destroyed his family particularly with his daughter. But I also wanted to take the heroine in hand for letting her parents' troubles mess up a good thing for her.
It's best to know going in that this is a prequel introduction that begins a story, but doesn't finish it until book one. It is complete enough to enjoy and doesn't have a cliffhanger or anything like that, but there is no resolve.
This was such a cute teen romance :-)
I loved the different characters and how the narrator portrayed them. This was a great easy listen light hearted and sweet.
Thoroughly enjoyed the book as well as how it was read. I hope to hear more :-) :-)
Overall I was very pleased by this book. This book is a clean romance novella, that is a second prequel in the “No Match for Love” series by Lindzee Armstrong. I listened to this book on Audible, narrated by Tiffany Williams.
As mentioned, this is a prequel in a series of books. It’s actually a prequel to the “Miss Match” book that appears to be Book3 in the series. It was a lovely, short-but-sweet book that makes me look forward to reading the next book. I didn’t want to put this down, and kept listening to the book all the way through to the end.
This is the second book by Lindzee Armstrong that I’ve read/listened to. I have enjoyed all her characters so far. I was happy and surprised to realize that this was an earlier prequel that gives some wonderful background on the future matchmaker Brooke. I met her the first time in “Strike a Match”. I can’t wait to hear the end of the story in the next book. As with the other book I’ve read, the characters were well developed and you could understand their emotions and conflicts. Even though they are teenagers, they are dealing with real-life issues such as divorce, etc.
I thought that the scenery and world that Lindzee Armstrong created here was well developed and descriptive. Nice descriptions of the places the characters are interacting, meeting, and ‘living’. The high school, parties, beach, and school dance were well described, so you could get a clear picture in your head while reading.
I listen to a great deal of books. A key to a good audio book is the narration. While a book can be well written and lovely; a poor narration can make it difficult and plodding to get through. Tiffany Williams does a great job at the narration for this book. It is well paced and pleasing to listen to.
This was such a sweetly frustrating story. I completely understand Luke's extreme frustration with Brooke pushing him away all the time, but poor Brooke being let down by the 1 man she is supposed to be #1 in his life no matter what else is going on. This story is adorable and takes me back in time. Tiffany did a great job and made me think of how everybody sounded eerily like her when I was in school.
I was gifted the audible copy of "Meet your Match" by Lindzee Armstrong from the author. This was my second audible book in the No Match for Love series. This story was a good one - just maybe not as good as "Strike a Match" (to me). I think I connected more with the characters in "Strike a Match", but I still liked the story in this one. A believable story that everyone can relate to. What is more important to you? Keeping your friend and friendship or exploring the possibility of what could be? Friends with benefits? Maybe more? When you already love that person as a friend, can that love turn into something more?
Here are some things I've noticed in the two audible stories that I've listened to: the characters are well thought out and developed. The storylines are very believable. Tiffany Williams is a great narrator- especially for these stories.
Can't wait to listen to the next story in this series.
