The last person Meredith Turner expects to see at her best friend’s wedding rehearsal dinner is the guy she had a one night stand with. What’s worse, Lincoln Forrest is the best man and as maid of honor, her partner. To add insult to injury, she has to leave the rehearsal dinner early, and Lincoln is the one to help her with a deeply personal problem. The aftermath of that night brings big changes for them both.
Lincoln Forrest has helped his best friend meet the woman of his dreams, but recently he’s made a series of bad decisions, the biggest being leaving his career with the Army. Now the former K-9 handler is looking for a new career and trying to get his life back on track. Helping Meredith in her time of need connects her to him more than he expected. On a mission to right the wrong he created, Linc will do whatever is needed. But when the attraction that first drew them together flares to life again, will the obstacles between them be too much to overcome? Or has the matchmaker met his match?
Title: The Matchmaker’s Match
Series: Man’s Best Friend #3
Author: Nicole Flockton
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Published: June 18, 2019
Publisher: Tule Publishing
My Rating: 4 stars
Sometimes one night stands don’t remain in the past. Especially when there is a definite spark between two people and fate seems to intervene to bring them together once again in unexpected circumstances.
THE MATCHMAKER’S MATCH is an emotional romance on many levels. It also has a touch of angst, personal loss, along with unexpected complications. Linc and Meredith are so right for each other, the sparks between them fly off of the page. But there is pain there as well, again on different levels for them each individually and together. I was easily caught up in their lives while enjoying glimpses of old book friends from the earlier books in this series. I adored Buster – one scene-stealing and heart stealing little pup that you cannot help but fall in love with.
I had fun with this one. It broke my heart in some ways and easily healed it back by the happy ever after ending. If you love a romance that goes a bit deeper into personal lives and consequences of actions then you’ll love THE MATCHMAKER’S MATCH or the entire series.
