ì Read Ï Match Me If You Can by Susan Elizabeth Phillips Ñ Listened to the AUDIBLE Enjoyed it just as much as reading it l loved it just as much, if not , the second time around.
Annabelle What s not to love A strong, independent lady who won t bow down to the whims of her family She knows what she wants to do and she goes for it.
Heath Sexy, and boy does he know it But he s made a name for himself and is now a smart, confident, rich guy.
Great to catch up with Phoebe, Dan, Molly, Kevin and the gang.
I know, Heath s description in the book is nothing like this guy but who cares I know what I like so I will just go with what I like Pippi, what a cutie she was.
And we had a secondary story going with Heath s friend, Bodie Cannot recommend this author enough.
5 STARS If I could put my brain in her body, the world would be mine for the taking OH MY GOD Why I did not read this earlier I do not understand This book was the perfect mix of romance,banter, and heart pounding moments I loved the dialogue between Annabelle and Heath I loved Annabelle s sassy wit I loved Heath s sexy, arrogant as hell attitude Basically I loved everything about it.
Heath Champion aka The Python, is Chicago s sexiest bachelor, who needs a perfect wife by his 35th birthday Having already hired Portia Powers, he refuses to hire Annabelle as well But he was pleasantly surprised by Annabelle s tenacious attitude and her earnestness, and decides to give her a shot.
Annabelle is ecstatic that she landed Heath as a client With overbearing parents, and brothers who are settled and happily married, Annabelle is the odd one out She is determined to prove to her parents that she is successful as well All she has to do is find Heath a wife.
I loved watching their relationship progressing Heath makes Annabelle sit through every new introduction between him and potential candidates was highly entertaining Her quick wit and humour amused me to no ends Unlucky for Annabelle because every candidate she proposed was rejected And after all, the one who Heath has all the delicious chemistry is with Annabelle.
But although Annabelle is fun, sharp witted, and smart, she s isn t sophisticated or classy enough His idea of a dream wife is a elegant and sweet lady who will reflect every accomplishment in his life He grinned, and right then it occurred to him that he hadn t enjoyed himself so much with a woman in a very long time If Annabelle Granger were a few inches taller, a hell of a lot sophisticated, better organized, less bossy, and inclined to worship at his feet, she d have made a perfect wife But Heath finds there is a difference between what he thinks he wants, to what he really needs.
Overall, it was an amazing read This was my first SEP book, and it most certainly won t be my last.

I m going to try to keep this one short and sweet.
In Match Me If You Can we meet Heath He is Kevin Tucker s agent He was sexy, had a killer smile and dressed to kill He was also known as the Python Having just about everything he wanted, having met all the goals he set for himself, all that was left for him to do is find the perfect wife Enter Annabelle Or as Pippi would say Belle Annabelle will do what s needed to keep Heath as her client with her match making company But one little misunderstanding involving a Princess Party creates a bit of a bump in the road for the both of them Sweet Pippi Tucker was Heath s nemesis He wouldn t admit to it but he loved the little girl It would be a secret that Pippi whispers in his ear that will make her his little angel.
Heath was certainly hard to please With every perfect woman Annabelle handed over to him came one rejection after another Slow to realize what he had right in front of him Heath ends up making a mistake that might not be fixable Like I said, I wasn t sure if I was going to love this one as much as the others But I did It was fun to catch up with Phoebe Molly The ladies book club was a hoot too I loved going back to Wind Lake Something sexy always goes on in one of those cottages I enjoyed meeting Bodie Heath s driver partner The side story with him and Portia was a great offset to the main plot Their story was just as sweet and sexy too.
This is such an amazing series and I will highly recommend it to anyone who already loves Susan Elizabeth Phillips writing or to anyone who has yet to read anything from her.

7 stars ,Jane Darlington Cal Bonner hide spoiler Damn, I found a winner I freaking loved book 1 in the series and now book 6 Match Me If You Can totally overthrew book 1 from the pedestalIt s all you seek in a romance, I don t wanna dwell on that, and neither should youand just like the line in the book goes Hey, this is supposed to be like in Jerry Maguire Remember You had me at hello.
Maybe, it didnt quite happened that way for Annabelle Granger aka Tinker Bell and Heath Champion, in this hilariously spontanious, funny, sweet and a bit angsty romance drama about a matchmaker and a hotshot spirts agent in pursuit for a wife a perfect wife.
When in fact, he had the best thing ever right in front of him the whole time.
So, yeahit took them to get thereit wasnt at hello for them, but it was for me and it was perfect either way Why are you smiling his wife asked, with a smile of her own Because you re perfect No, I m not, she laughed But I m perfect for youAmen.
Hook, line sinkerOne of my fave books as of now You Met Quarterback Kevin Tucker In This Heart Of Mine Now Get Ready To Meet His Shark Of An Agent, Heath Champion, And Annabelle Granger, The Girl Least Likely To SucceedAnnabelle S Endured Dead End Jobs, A Broken Engagement Even Her Hair S A Mess But That S Going To Change Now That She S Taken Over Her Late Grandmother S Matchmaking Business All Annabelle Has To Do Is Land The Windy City S Hottest Bachelor As Her Client, And She Ll Be The Most Sought After Matchmaker In TownWhy Does The Wealthy, Driven, And Gorgeous Sports Agent Heath Champion Need A Matchmaker, Especially A Red Haired Screw Up Like Annabelle Granger True, She S Entertaining, And She Does Have A Certain Quirky Appeal But Heath Is Searching For The Ultimate Symbol Of Success The Perfect Wife And To Make An Extraordinary Match, He Needs An Extraordinary Matchmaker, Right Soon Everyone In Chicago Has A Stake In The Outcome, And A Very Big Question When The Determined Matchmaker Promised She D Do Anything To Keep Her Star Client Happy Did She Mean Anything If Annabelle Isn T Careful, She Just Might Find Herself Going Heart To Heart With The Toughest Negotiator In Town 4,5 Perfect for You Starsand right then it occurred to him that he hadn t enjoyed himself so much with a woman in a very long time.
Fun, fun, fun A non stop romantic funfest from start to finish where Annabelle Granger, a quirky thirty something matchmaker with a fledgling business, a colourful wardrobe and a big heart meets Heath Champion, a too handsome NFL top agent with a goal in mind marrying his ideal woman, aka everything Annabelle is not Will our resourceful matchmaker be able to find her for him Not an easy fit, considering a battalion of nosy relatives, stubborn ageing clients, several bad hair days, shark on stilettos competitors and most of all, a potential Mr Right who hasn t realised yet that, in life, what you think you want doesn t always match with what you really needA writing that just keeps you turning the pages, snappy humour, sizzling chemistry, brilliant dialogues, a very amusing but not excessively intrusive secondary romance, an endearing cast of characters from previous and next books well and lively crafted just as much as the leading couple Annabelle and Heath both have likeable, strong personalities and all their interactions, from sparring to teasing to flirting, are a hoot Seeing them first skirting around each other all business like and then gloating while they got entangled in their own unexpected emotions made for a wild romp punctuated by some head shaking at their stubbornness, frequent laughing out loud moments and rewarding sighing at their cuteness but don t tell Heath this last one.
Romantic comedy doesn t get much better than this.
Buddy read with Jill Match Me If You Can is about Heath, the wealthy sports agent, who wants the perfect wife Of course, he s too busy to look for this perfect woman and instead has two different match making agencies in search of her Annabelle is the owner of one of those agencies and she s determined to find him the perfect woman Heath s demands on Annabelle created a lot of fun banter Having Annabelle attend all the introductions between him and the potential candidates built lively conversation between the two of them At this point, in the story, she had fallen for him and of course he was totally clueless to her feelings towards him Match Me If You Can is part of the Chicago Stars series and while it s book 6 in the series I was able to read it just fine even though I ve only read book 1 Don t let the series numbers stop you from giving it a try I enjoyed listening to this audio while I painted our fence It helped pass the hours My kids thought it was funny the only place I ended up with paint was on my ear from pulling out my headphones.
