Publisher's Summary

"An utterly charming opposites-attract-story. Hovland perfectly balances simmering sexual tension with a surprising amount of emotion, and the stomach-flip-causing ending is the perfect example of why I read and love romance." (New York Times best-selling author, Lauren Layne) 

Number-crunching Velma Johnson's perfectly planned life is right on course.  

That's a lie. Sure, she's got the lucrative job. She's got the posh apartment. But her sister nabbed Velma's Mr. Right. There has to be a man out there for Velma. Hopefully, one who's hunky, wears pressed suits, and has a diversified financial portfolio. He'll be exactly like, well...her sister's new fiancé.  

Badass biker Brek Montgomery blazes a trail across the country, managing Dimefront, one of the biggest rock bands of his generation. With the band on hiatus, Brek rolls into Denver to pay a quick visit to his family and friends. But when Brek's sister suddenly gets put on bed rest, she convinces Brek to take over her wedding planning business for the duration of her pregnancy.  

Staying in Denver and dealing with bridezillas was not what Brek had in mind when he passed through town, but there is one particular maid-of-honor who might make his stay worthwhile.  

Velma finds herself strangely attracted to the man planning her sister's wedding. Problem is, he ticks none of the boxes on her well-crafted list. Brek is rough around the edges, he cusses, and doesn't even have a 401(k). But trying something crazy might get her out of the rut of her dating life - so long as she lays down boundaries up front and sticks to her plan....  

Going Down on One Knee is Book One of the Mile High Matched series. If you love a hunky, tattooed wedding planner, this book is for you. Buy now for a fun, opposites attract romance!

A MOST IMPRESSIVE & COMPELLING ROM/COM

This was a new to me author and so, with my fingers crossed, I hoped it was going to be an entertaining worthwhile story.. and I was very pleasantly surprised and thoroughly entertained by two polar opposites who warmly pushed n pulled their way to a HEA. There’s Velma who’s a very organized, prudish, analytically minded Manager of Investment Portfolios with a five year romance plan and the fiery, handsome, sexy, ‘go with the flow’ tattooed biker force of nature that was Brek Montgomery.. Manager of a rock band. Complete opposites.. a free-spirit never wanting to settle in one place - and a woman with her feet planted firmly in one place whose goal is centered on finding the ten out of ten man who ticked all of her concisely structured well-thought-out boxes. Never going to happen.. right!?.. nuh uh wrong. Because this talented author brings them together, forces a timeline on them, mixes marital mayhem as they try to pull off being perfect wedding planners, throws in sexual chemistry, sexcapades, blurred lines, character growth and fun.. and voila, love disrupts their planned routes. But the wee bit predictable relationship strike hits hard, breaks hearts and delivers a devastating blow.. luckily for them (and us) though, this author believes in sweet happily ever afters.

Worth a credit? Yes it’s a fun, light, sexy well-paced slow-burn as Brek slowly shows tightly-strung Velma how to loosen up on preplanned goals, live in the moment, laugh at life, open her heart up to possibilities and realize you can’t control love with a system Great dual POV narration by Neva and Lance brought the characters, their feelings and their boundary pushing and pulling to life in the most delightful and endearing way. And the best part of all.. absolutely no credit is needed to put a smile on your face with this one.. because it’s offered absolutely free with Escape.. yay ;)

An okay listen.

The male narrator sounded much too dramatic, it made listening to those parts almost painful. He has a great voice, very sexy, but it sounded far too dramatic.

Slow burn, Loved the build up

I was really surprised that I went through this audiobook so quickly. Slow burns aren't usually my favorite thing but it worked for Brek and Velma. Velma is completely opposite in her life than she is with her work. She seemed so fierce and determined but the life changing event with her sister really messed with her perspective on life and love. Shes meticulous and serious. Brek is not. He goes with the flow on his motorcycle working with rockstars. This is a live Velma's never seen. Change seems to shake her up. Brek has an immediate and strong attraction to Velma. Velma feels it to but she puts up a good fight... poor girls doesn't stand a chance against Brek's tattooed body with tight shirts, ripped jeans and leather... plus, he cares. He's a softy under all that leather.

Anyway, I enjoyed the narrators so much! Lance Greenfield could play any man. He has this strong baritone that works for Breks biker persona. Neva Navarre was a perfect Velma. I loved how flustered Velma got and I could just feel and hear it all in the narrators voice. It just made the narration for me!! I'm looking forward to book two in the series, Blow Me Away!!

Must read review

This was a first time read/listen with this author this type of book isn't my usual gender to listen to I must say I LOVED IT. the story was so well written with characters you really want to know I couldn't put it down. there was drama and it was lite thank god some authors put to much nope not here you also get humor and laughs well rounded and a fun book. as far as narration go's Navarre was fantastic loved her preference a lot. Greenfield I really could have done without he had a great voice but the performance was bad he was soooo dramatic and slow with the reading I would have returned the book but I really got into the story it was that good so I speed up his parts he read it helped some what so keep that in mind. the book is worth listening to. hopefully he's not used in the other books overall loved loved the story and female narrator.

Hilarious and steamy!

The biker dude and the financial advisor can never work, can it? Velma had a thing for her colleague, Dean...then he met her twin sister and queue the hearts. Now they’re getting married and Velma has to put up with Dean’s friend...rock band manager, and biker dude, Breck. He doesn’t fit Velma’s carefully constructed life or her spreadsheet. Tell that to her heart...and his...the question though, can this unlikely pair really last or is this just a fling?
Great story with so many LOL moments! Trust me, you WILL want to read/listen to this.

Really Wanted To Like It

I really wanted to be able to give it 5 stars but just couldn't. The storyline was dragged out and it probably didn't help that the male narrator talked so slow - I even speed it up to 2x and I just felt like I was motioning the whole time "come one..spill it"
Bummer!
I will say there is one part that was so funny that I laughed so hard I cried - ;)

Opposites Attract!

This was my first Christina Hovland's book, and won't be my last! This is the first book in the Mile High Matched Series, a Romantic Comedy, and opposites attract romance. Brek and Velma's story is fun, and sweet. Brek, a tattooed biker, manager of a popular rock band, is taking over his sister's wedding planning business. Velma is a fun and sassy woman. They are great together! The storyline is original, fast-paced and hilarious. I love the ending. Neva Navarre and Lance Greenfield did a great job with the narration. I enjoyed it! Looking forward for the next book in the Series.
