Publisher's Summary

Wingman rule number one: don't fall for a client.

After a career-ending accident, former NFL recruit Ian Hunter is back on campus - and he's ready to get his new game on. As one of the masterminds behind Wingmen, Inc., a successful and secretive word-of-mouth dating service, he's putting his extensive skills with women to work for the lovelorn. But when Blake Olson requests the services of Wingmen, Inc., Ian may have landed his most hopeless client yet.

From her frumpy athletic gear to her unfortunate choice of footwear, Blake is going to need a miracle if she wants to land her crush. At least with a professional matchmaker by her side she has a fighting chance. Ian knows that his advice and a makeover can turn Blake into another successful match. But as Blake begins the transformation from hot mess to smokin' hot, Ian realizes he's in danger of breaking his cardinal rule....

✫✫ 4 Stars ✫✫

This was a fun book! I loved these characters, especially Blake. She was feisty, quirky and sweet all in one. Ian was cocky but that was more of a cover and the banter between these two was off the charts! Not only were these main characters great but the side characters were just as good! Lex & Gabi are hilarious and the sexual tension between them was perfect! I wasn't sure if I was going to like this when it started because of the "match maker" aspect, it's over done but honestly I loved the way RVD pulled it off. Can't wait to start book 2! I just know it's going to be Lex & Gabi's book!

Jeremy York did a good job, especially on the cocky guys in this book!

Another hilarious one from RVD!

5 Crazy Ass Must Listen Stars!!!!!

RVD does it again with this hilarious start to a new series! I went into this blind not having read the blurb or anything. After reading the Consequences series, I just had to see if RVD had in her to continue the hilarious stories she writes. Well, I wasn't disappointed in the least. This had me laughing out loud and at times laugh until my stomach hurt. I even had a few "spit my drink out" moments.
Ian and Blake's banter was the best. Their story had me listening intently and wanting for the next hilarious moment. I never had to wait long. My favorite line was the one about the scrunchie and Napolean Dynamite. "We'll find you something else that doesn't make you look like you starred in Napoleon Dynamite, okay?"
I'm so looking forward to Lex's story. I'm off to stalk so I can see when that is expected to release.

LOVED, LOVED, LOVED THIS BOOK

This book was fun and sexy. I'm surprised my face isn't soar from smiling for 9.5 hours. This is the type of book, for me, to listen to after a dark and intense book.

Rachel Van Dyken did a great job drawing you in and getting you to relate and invest in the characters.

Jeremy York performed a sexy voice for Ian. I also loved his voice for Lex. His female voice for Blake and Gabby were also belivable and distinctive.

I will listen to this book over and over.

I bought this book and sale for under $10 but it is absolutely worth a credit.

Almost as good as Neighbors From Hell!

What is better than a story about a womaniser falling in love with the tomboy? How about a totally hilarious and crude story about it instead of the sickeningly sweet versions.

The two guy friends dialogue and antics reminded me so much of Jr High boys I couldn't help but laugh. Almost as enjoyable as the Neighbors From Hell book series.

The Matchmakers Playbook Review

When I first starting listening to this book I thought the hero was so narcissistic that I couldn't finish the book. But I'm so glad I didn't quit listening. It was a fun book about two shameless playboys, their matchmaking business and good friends. But, one of the playboys got more than he bargained for in fun but innocent tomboy. This book was funny, sweet, and sexy. Great easy read. Have fun!

All around brilliant

Do yourself a favor & purchase the audiobook version! The narration is phenomenal! Seriously, the timing in his storytelling was perfect. I kept thinking of Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool or Van Wilder throughout. He gives that type of delivery. Sheer perfection.
And on that same note, the story made me laugh out loud quite a bit. I love Rachel Van Dyken's books, and this one definitely did not disappoint.

too cocky

The book was enjoyable but not a favorite. I liked that it was a romance without one explicit sex scene after another but found the main character to be too cocky (although cocky is usually sexy in a book) and his predictions too accurate to be believable. His expected falling in love happened a little too quickly, without letting the reader in on the experiences that caused it to happen. It was OK.

Ian is my perfect kind of book boyfriend

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Oh yes! 100% Recommended. I started reading this book without the audio companion and as soon as I check who was the narrator I had to get it. Jeremy York has a great voice and he always has great inflexions for all the characters. He's fastly becoming one of my favorite narrators. The Matchmaker's Playbook is a funny, sexy and romantic story about a guy who found love in the less expected girl, and for me, this is the best kind of stories.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Matchmaker's Playbook?

When Ian was love coaching Blake. It was awesome to read how his distate for her fastly became into a huge attraction and later love. Totally awesome. But if I have to say one, I have to say when they were in the dressing room. Funny and sexy all the way.

Which scene was your favorite?

My favorite scene was when they were playing voley and Ian got hurt, and then he told Blake how he got his kneww injure. It was touching and heroic and perfect. Like I said, Ian is my perfect kind of book boyfriend and just like he said it, he is Superman.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed out loud all the time. Ian is so crude I couldnt help but to laugh at all his commnets and of course I laughed at every Blake reaction to Ian's love training. Great couple. Perfect match.

Any additional comments?

Rachel Van Dyken did an amazing job with this book. Her writing style, character's development and plotting mind are great. I always wanted to read her and I'm sad it took me so long to finally had the time to fit one of her books into my busy schedule, and what a perfect way to start than with this series. I started with the second book, The Matchmaker's Replacement, so I fell first for Lex Luthor and later for Superman. And talking about Lex, I loved the bromance in both books, and this aspect made these 2 books more awesome.

All in all, The Matchmaker's Playbook was a amazing book, full of funny, sexy and romantic moments. Ian Hunter is my new super book boyfriend, along with Blake as my new book girlfriend. 100% Recommended.
