Synopsis:  Welcome to the sexy, crazy, wildly unpredictable world of modern matchmaking, where fixing up strangers is part of the job--but falling in love is an occupational hazard…
Blake Donovan is tall, handsome, rich, and successful--so why would a guy like him need a matchmaker? Andrea Dawson has no idea, but a job is a job. After being blackballed from a career in marketing, Andrea agreed to use her unique profiling skills to play matchmaker out of pure desperation. But when she meets her highly eligible--and particular--first client face to face, she wonders what she's gotten herself into…

Blake knows exactly the kind of woman he's looking for--and it's the total opposite of Andrea. Though smart and undeniably sexy, she is simply too headstrong for a man who's used to being in charge. Still, Blake's blood pressure rises whenever she's near him. How can he explain the smoldering attraction that sizzles between them? And how can Andrea deny she's feeling it, too? Maybe, just maybe, they've finally met their match…

My Thoughts:  I really liked this book. The characters had chemistry and it was a really quick read for me. After being fired from her job, Andy is now desperate for any job she can find.She finds an ad on the internet for a matchmaker, and since she used skills to match people with at her old job, her sister thinks she'd be great for the job. With rent due and bills to pay, Andy reluctantly applies for the position. At first I really didn't like Blake. He was an arrogant ass, but as more about him was revealed, he started to grow on me. After Blake offers Andy the job of his matchmaker, she sets out to find out what he wants in a wife, a robot would have been perfect for him, in my opinion. 
             Andy is everything Blake doesn't want, at least he thinks he doesn't. Andy is smart, ambitious, and talks a lot. As Blake spends more time with Andy he begins to realize that she is everything he wants, but when a huge misunderstanding happens, Andy flee's and quits her job working for Blake.
