I'm breaking up with setups. No more “you should meet my son, nephew, grandson, the butcher, the guy down the street who mows my lawn.” People mean well, but machines know better, so I'll rely on the great dating algorithms of the web to find my ideal man, thank you very much. Soon enough, it looks like I’ve found him - his screen name is Lucky Suit, and he’s hilarious, quick-witted, and full of heart. But when we finally get together in person, I have the distinct feeling I’ve met him before. Funny enough - he says the same thing about me.

I can honestly say that there is only one thing wrong with Lauren Blakely's "Lucky Suit"... it ends way too soon.

This has got to be one of the cutest, sweetest romantic comedy I have ever read. I loved the interaction between Kristen and Cameron - and Kristen's grandmother was a riot! Why oh why couldn't this book have gone on for days or weeks? I need more of Kristen and Cameron.

But, if you up for a quick read (or rather listen) then this is the book for you. Just sit back, relax and let the narrators extraordinaire entertain you with the quick wit that is Lauren Blakely.

Since childhood, Mallory McCabe has dreamed of falling in love with a hero. And then one saves her life. He's honest and blunt. Deadly, but filled with pain. Overpowering, yet ever so gentle with her. Oh yes, she's found her hero. Taking him to her bed is simply ... right. As is losing her heart. How could she have known he'd want nothing more to do with her?

The entire Mountain Masters & Dark Haven series has been a great series to listen to. Kai Kennicott & Wen Ross are terrific narrators and Cherise Sinclair has written a series that made me download each volume after I finished the previous. While, just as the author lets us know in the beginning of each volume, I know that this is fiction and not all BDSM relationships are as filled with love and hearts and flowers as these are - listening to these stories is a great escape into a world where we can dip our toes in without any fear of danger or regret.

Thank you Ms Sinclair for creating the world of Mountain Masters and Dark Haven, where we can fall in love with a Dom and feel all the feels that his little "subby" would feel.

One thing that I can honestly say about Lindzee Armstrong is that she can tell a love story! In this case, I listened to "Kiss Me in the Moonlight" as an audio book on Audible. Between the great writing skills of the author and terrific narrating by Stacey Glemboski, I never wanted to turn it off. Not only do you have the heart-wrenching love story between Paige and Nick and all the back story along with it, but you have some nail biting drama and a little side flirtation between Layla and Tyler.

One could only hope to have someone like Nick so in love with you, that he would do anything and never give up till he won your heart.

When Michelle Collins accidentally walks into the men's restroom at a holiday party, she doesn't expect it to end with a toe-tingling kiss under the mistletoe. But the magic of the moment quickly dies when she realizes the mystery man is Austin O'Neal, the new marketing director of the pharmaceutical company she's sworn to destroy. Michelle will do anything to protect animals from unfair lab testing - even go up against the first man to make her feel alive.

Mistletoe Match by Lindzee Armstrong is another adorable love story in the No Match for Love Series. This one is a little different, as Michelle is no longer using the services of Toujour. This time Michelle literally meets the man of her dreams by chance. Of course, it's never that easy. How could she know that dreamy Austin is the new Marketing Director for a company that is involved in animal testing for their products? And, Michelle is a vegan animal activist. As the fates would have it, Austin and Michelle keep getting thrown at each other when all Michelle wants (for her own sanity) is to never see him again.

As you may or may not know, the narrator can make or break the book. Well, she made it!
Tiffany Williams did a great job narrating.

So, if you are looking for a feel good "listen" (even if it isn't Christmas time), pick up Mistletoe Match, settle into a comfy spot and escape into another installment in one of the sweetest love story series that I have ever read or listened to.

Oh - and if you haven't already, be sure to download the entire No Match for Love series. They are all great stories!!

I have absolutely loved this series. While Zoey and Mitch might not have been my favorite couple compared to the others (at first), this story wraps everything up and ties it in the perfect bow worthy of a professional gift wrapper at Christmas.

This time Lindzee Armstrong includes a little excitement and drama along with the romance as the paparazzi stalks Zoey and Mitch for the scoop on the wedding of the century.

Along with the descriptions of the sites and sounds of Paris, one can only dream and pretend that it's your wedding being planned in the gardens of Versailles with an original wedding gown from a French designer.

Thank you Lindzee Armstrong for creating and sharing these stories and for the talents of Tiffany Williams as she continues to narrate and bring these stories to life.

Definitely a worthy and enjoyable audio book series. They made my commute back and forth to work so much more enjoyable - with our without traffic.

Can't wait to sink my teeth into another one.

After listening to the audio book "Miss Match: No Match for Love, Book 1" - I thought that I had found my favorite book in the series. I had no idea that "Not Your Match: No Match for Love, Book 2" was linked to the previous book. This time it's basically the same story but from the other side. This time we find out all the behind the scenes info on Andi and Ben. So many questions get answered and make more sense now hearing this side of the story on how Luke and Brooke and Andi and Ben save Toujour.

Tiffany Williams does another amazing job narrating the story.

These stories keep the hope alive that true love does exist - maybe in real life as well as within the pages shared by Lindzee Armstrong.

Now to find me some coconut lip gloss. ;-)

Miss Match: No Match for Love has become my favorite in the series so far. Lindzee's storytelling skills just keep getting better and better and Tiffany Williams is a great narrator.

I was on the edge of my seat with this story - hoping and praying that both Brooke and Luke would see the writing on the wall. That they belong together - and that Antonio is a great big jerk!

Yes I am one of those people who yell at the movie screen or tv when the characters need to be read the riot act. This story was no exception. However, I was kept not only interested in the outcome but somehow invested in it. With every chapter, I needed to make Brooke and Luke see what was right in front of their eyes.

Whether it was fate or "Toujour" the perfect match had to be made.

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.

What did you love best about Strike a Match?

I loved how down to earth the story and characters were, and yet the story was so inspiring. I felt like a friend was telling me their own story, one that I could feel for them and then cheer for them. A story that you just longed for a happy ending for both Kate and Taylor.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I have to admit that my favorite character was Corey - while not a major character by any means - as Taylor's friend, he was a loyal friend but wasn't afraid to give it to him straight. After all, it's all because of Corey that Taylor signed up with TouJours. I'd say that he has a Best Man request in his future.

Which scene was your favorite?

I am torn on this one - I loved the scene after Taylor cut his date with Kate short to go to the firehouse and cover the shift for one of his fellow firefighters (Doug). Corey is there waiting for his shift to end. Taylor fills Corey in on the latest on him and Kate - and Corey lays into Taylor on what an idiot he is being. Or the very end when Taylor and Kate are on a hike that leads to the most breathtaking view. Still have chills thinking about that scene.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The scene was Kate's date at the Italian restaurant with the aggressive, self-obsessed bachelor #2 (aka Randy) when Kate went into anaphylactic shock due to her peanut allergy. As fate would have it, Taylor was there waiting for his food to take home - he witnessed her attack as her date was freaking out. Taylor took control of the situation and even went to the ER with her. So sweet!

Any additional comments?

One of my biggest issues with audio books is the narrator - I was pleasantly pleased with the narration by Tiffany Williams. She did a lovely job of telling the story. I was gifted a copy of this book from the author and am voluntarily leaving my honest review.
