The Match by Sarah Adams

I can fully admit to my obsession with Sarah Adams, so be prepared for many more rom com reviews in the near future.

Evie is a southern girl who’s worked hard to become independent since her diagnosis with epilepsy. She helps train service dogs and meets Jake, a single dad with a daughter who has the same diagnosis.

Typically, I tend to shy away from books where the characters are divorced or in messy relationship situations. The fact that Jake had an ex-wife didn’t play much into the story, but it still doesn’t make for my favorite type of romance trope. However, Evie is a perfect fit into their little family and she and Jake both have to learn to trust each other as the story progresses.

All in all, The Match was a fairly clean romance with lovable characters and a cute love story. It won’t be the first one I pick up when I want to mood read a favorite rom com, but I still really enjoyed it! Definitely read this book if you’re already a fan of Sarah Adams. If you’re new to party and want something light and fun to read, then I’d say pick up The Enemy first (one of my personal favorite of hers), but maybe that’s just me.

From the back cover:

Having worked for Southern Service Paws for a few years now, I like to think I’m prepared for just about any client meeting under the sun. I am dead wrong.

The day I meet with single dad Jacob Broaden about potentially matching his daughter with one of our service dogs, I learn a few valuable lessons.

  1. Always set my alarm clock.

  2. Single dads are way hotter than I previously thought.

  3. It is possible to go from fantasizing about kissing someone to wishing they would be run over by a truck in a matter of two minutes.

Unfortunately, I don’t hold that opinion of him for very long. Not when he shows me a different side of himself - one that’s sweet as maple syrup and hot as apple pie fresh out of the oven.

Too bad this guy is so far out of my league that I shouldn’t even be allowed to enter the game. Jake doesn’t seem to get that memo, though. And after a few days of working closely with him and his daughter, he starts looking at me with fire in his eyes, making me dream of something I probably shouldn’t....

A family.

The Match is a feel-good romantic comedy! Perfect for listeners who enjoy a sizzling romance without explicit content.
