Synopsis from Good Reads:
Matchmaking guru Kennedy Pepperdine’s life is perfect. Perfect job. Perfect friends. Perfect boyfriend. Except…when she gets trapped in an elevator with a handsome stranger, she accidentally confesses a secret: maybe her perfect boyfriend, Justin, isn’t so perfect for her after all. But a matchmaker should be able to successfully match herself, right? Thankfully, she’ll never see the handsome stranger again. Until she heads home with Justin for the holidays and learns that the sexy stranger is none other than Justin’s older brother, Matt.
Matt Ellis is trying to be on his best behavior for his mother—it is Christmas, after all. But when he recognizes the beautiful woman from the elevator—the one he hasn’t been able to stop thinking about for months—his best behavior is being held by a thread. Matt’s always sacrificed for his family, and nothing is more important than their happiness, but the more time he spends around Kennedy, the more he wonders if her supposed “right match” might just be the wrong brother.
I received a copy of this title from NetGalley. It does not impact my review.
Wrong Brother, Right Match will be available December 5, 2016.
Wrong Brother, Right Match is basically a Hallmark Christmas Movie in book form and I love it!
Kennedy owns a matchmaking business and has recently developed specialized software to help match people up. She even used it on herself and found her fiancé. However, her relationship with Justin isn’t quite living up to her expectations. He’s a workaholic and often treats Kennedy as an afterthought. She’s determined to make it work, though, since their engagement seems to be a major selling point to possible investors in her company. To further complicate matters, she finds out that the man she once kissed in an elevator (and has never been able to forget) is Justin’s brother, Matt. When Justin abandons Kennedy with his family during their Christmas vacation to go back to work for a few days, Kennedy finds herself spending an awful lot of time with Matt and questioning her relationship with Justin even more.
One thing that I always hate in books is cheating so I was a little concerned that I wouldn’t be able to get on board the Kennedy-Matt Ship. Thankfully the characters had some integrity. Kennedy told Justin about the elevator kiss (though at the time she didn’t know it was his brother). And while Matt and Kennedy definitely were developing feelings for each other, they never really crossed the line. I ended up really rooting for them.
I really liked both Kennedy and Matt. I thought they were both pretty well-developed and relatable characters. I loved Matt’s relationship with his family, as well. I also enjoyed seeing a couple cameos from the couples from the previous books in the Anyone But You series.
Overall, I really enjoyed Wrong Brother, Right Match. I liked the sweet romance and the Christmas setting. It reminded me so much of watching a Hallmark Christmas movie, which I love. I definitely recommend it to those looking for a romantic holiday themed read.
