If the author hadn’t been Shelley Bradley, I would have bumped my rating up a bit for “A Perfect Match”. But because it was Bradley, I expected just a bit more than I got. This is a perfectly nice contemporary romance, but I expect more than perfectly nice from Shelley Bradley.
Juliette had to grow up fast after the death of her mother. Her father’s military career meant constant moves and Juliette become mom for her little sister. Now Juliette and her sister are grown and she’s finally settled for good, and she never intends to move again. She also runs a matchmaking service, and is seriously considering a marriage proposal from a successful, settled man. When a reporter shows up to do a story on her business, Juliette is excited and looking forward to touting her success rates as free advertising.
Mitch has itchy feet. He’s always looking to live life and doesn’t believe in Juliette’s business or her services. He would, however, be perfectly happy to ‘service’ her! When his article isn’t as supportive as Juliette would like, his boss suggests Mitch let Juliette set him up on a date. And wouldn’t you know it, when Juliette inputs the information in her program, she and Mitch are a match! Looks like Juliette has a few decisions to make.
At just over 200 pages, “A Perfect Match” is a quick, fun read. It has a light helping of Shelley Bradley’s signature heat, but is still firmly romance vice erotica.
