Mr. Match Series
Book 1 – Scoring the Keeper’s Sister
Signing up for a matchmaking service was not my idea. But when Andrew the hand model dumped me, my brother suggested I try Mr. Match. And I figured it couldn’t hurt–as it was, I’d never get away from meathead moron soccer players (since my brother plays keeper for the South Bay Sharks and I manage PR for the team.)
But Mr. Match is a moron too because he matched me with a guy I see at work every day. A guy who has a different girl on his arm at every turn. And a soccer player. Fernando Fuerte, the “Fuerte Fire,” is one guy I can assure you is NOT my match.
Getting girls is not a problem. Getting girls who care about something besides my status as the South Bay Sharks star striker, my salary, and my social status? Yeah. That’s the problem. So when my buddy Max tells me he’s actually Mr. Match–the secret proprietor of San Diego’s hottest matchmaking app, I let him convince me to try it.
And Erica Johnson is not actually a bad match–only she doesn’t seem to agree. And then there’s the small matter of her being in the middle of trying to save the team (and me) when the owner’s ex brings to light some, ahem, unsavory accusations about me… and then there’s her enormous and disapproving twin brother…and there’s something about cheese, too.
But if I have my way? Erica will definitely be my match.
Book 2 – Scoring A Fake Fiancee
Has Mr. Match met a match he can’t handle? Grab your balls and hang on — the second book in the hilarious Mr. Match series is here, and it’s full of snort-laugh moments, jokes about balls (c’mon…it’s a soccer book!), and the best Christmas-themed double-engagement epilogue in the history of, well, Christmas-themed double-engagement epilogues.
TRACE: My twin sister found love using the dating site everyone in San Diego is talking about — Mr. Match. And now that she’s happily coupled, she thinks I should look for my match.
The thing is? I’m pretty sure I don’t have one. I’ve got soccer. And maybe that’s all I really need–it’s definitely the only thing I’ve ever really been able to depend on, besides Erica.
I signed up. But what I got was not what I expected.
I did not expect to feel so much for a woman I’d only just met. And I definitely didn’t expect to find myself agreeing to pretend to be her fiancé.
The question is, if this is all pretend, why does it feel so real?
MAGALIE: When I moved to San Diego from France, I thought that would be enough to convince my mother I was committed to living my own life. But when she announced she was coming to visit, and bringing Henri–the man she wanted me to marry–I panicked.
Maybe using a site designed to match you with your soulmate wasn’t the right way to find someone to convince my mother I was engaged. Maybe convincing my mother I was engaged wasn’t the right way to get out of the arranged marriage she was trying to force on me.
And maybe there’s a lot more to my fake fiancé Trace Johnson than he’s willing to show the world.
I wish I didn’t want so badly to find out what’s beneath his bravado (and his shirt).
Book 3 – Scoring A Prince
She followed him around the world, only to find he wasn’t waiting for her. Can he convince her to give him a second chance?
HAMISH: I’ll be honest—I hadn’t been thinking much about love or marriage. I’d met the girl for me and let her go years ago. And until I could make that right? I wasn’t looking.
Until my Durnish family reminded me that to keep my place in line for the Durnish throne (and my only real link to my homeland) I needed to tie the knot before I hit thirty.
The issue? There’s only one girl I’m willing to marry and I haven’t seen or heard from her in six years.
I’ll have to find her fast and hope she won’t be bothered by my lack of… experience. She’s the one. And until I find her again, I haven’t wanted to share my royal scepter with just anyone, if ya get my drift.
SOPHIE: I followed Hamish MacEvoy to America six years ago, but what I found there told me right away he wasn’t waiting around for me.
Since then, I’ve built my own life—free of kilt-wearing football players, thank you very much. I have a successful business baking wedding cakes for the elite of the San Diego wedding scene.
But when Erica Johnson and Fernando Fuerte—who plays for Hamish’s team—came walking through my door, I should have hidden. Well, actually I did hide, but it all fell apart anyway.
I’m just not sure I’m ready to give Hamish a second chance.
* * *
Hamish “The Hammer” MacEvoy is every Sharks player’s favorite kilt-wearing drinking buddy. But he’s also a prince. And to keep his place in line for the throne of his tiny island country, he has to be married before the age of thirty.
Can Hamish find Sophie? And if he does, can he convince her to give him another chance after all this time? And if he can do that, will they survive the Feats of Matrimonial Might? And what about all the sheep?
The third hilarious book in the Mr. Match series will take you for a laugh-out-loud ride you won’t forget!
Book 4 – Scoring With the Boss
Mr. Match has the formula for love. So why is he still single?
MAX: Being Mr. Match has been fun. And while it’s nice that thousands of couples have found love thanks to me, that was never really the point. The one guy I most wanted to match?
Doesn’t have one.
Now the vultures are circling, and it won’t be long before all of San Diego finds out exactly who I am. And then the questions will begin. Why hasn’t Mr. Match found his match?
If I answer that one, it’ll discredit everything Mr. Match is, and call into question all the matches I’ve made so far. It’s time to step away.
But when the venture capital analyst arrives to help divest me of the business, I’m starting to wonder if love really is as easy as a mathematical formula. Because Tatum Archer does something to me that defies logic and confounds reason. I feel feelings for her, even though the algorithm says I shouldn’t.
Have I been wrong all along?
TATUM: My life was set. Divorce, check. Kickass job, check. Enormous dog… well, okay, that wasn’t part of the plan, but Charlie is my sidekick now and I’m okay with that.
A weeklong trip to San Diego to help set up the sale of a matchmaking business sounds like just the kind of challenge I thrive on. I just didn’t expect Mr. Match himself to be quite so…
When my manager suggests I take over the company and stay in San Diego temporarily, it makes perfect sense from a business perspective. But getting involved with a client would be the end of everything I’d spent years building.
We have to keep things professional. Max assures me we’re not a match anyway.
So why can’t we keep our hands off each other?
* * *
Tatum Archer doesn’t date clients, and Max isn’t signing up for a romantic liaison that hasn’t been mathematically guaranteed.
So why can’t he stop thinking about Tatum? Or about her ridiculously enormous dog, Charlie? Not that he’s thinking about Charlie romantically, of course. But the dog is part of a package deal. And maybe he’s thinking about Tatum a little bit romantically…
The final book in the Mr. Match series see Mr. Match finally find his own match! Don’t miss the laughs in this hilarious series finale!
