She’s at the wedding of two people she matched, when she runs into a man named Joe. She apologizes and they have a short conversation. The next couple of days, both of them haven’t forgotten each other but don’t expect to ever see each other again. Charlotte was pleasantly surprised to see Joe again and that he recognizes her. Charlotte and Joe met each other again multiple times and they grow closer every time. Joe is rich and a little closed off. He isn’t really enjoying nor loving his life. A tragic accident in his past still affects his life and he can’t forget about it. Joe doesn’t do commitment. He just goes from one woman to the next. But that changes after knowing Charlotte better. He thinks she’s gorgeous and he likes spending time with her. Joe loves it that she doesn’t realize who he really is and he wants to keep it that way for a little while. Charlotte makes Joe want things he never thought he would ever want again. Charlotte is friendly, caring, sweet, independent and loving. She loves her job and she’s so happy that her boss gave her that opportunity. She’s great at it. She matches people who seem unlikely to match but they will fall in love. Charlotte wasn’t really looking for love when she meets Joe. She’s definitely attracted to him. I loved Joe and Charlotte together. The Client is my first Pamela DuMond read and it won’t be my last. I loved it. I enjoyed it a lot. It was fun, beautiful and a little touching. I adored Joe and Charlotte. This book also has some amazing secondary characters. Joe’s grandmother is so funny and she only wants the best for her grandson. -- My honest review is based on a copy provided by the author. --

Joe is very close to his 83 year old grandmother and she is actually a very funny busy body. I really enjoyed the grandmother character. Joe hasn't been in a relationship in a long time other than his quickies at the Library aisle. They are both attracted to each other and this builds into something more. I really enjoyed their story and will be looking for more books by Ms. DuMond.

    The Client was the first book in the Playing Dirty series by Pamela DuMond. It was also my first book by the author. I received a complimentary copy for an honest review. Charlotte Louise Bauer was a struggling assistant at the White Glove Matchmaking agency. She was pretty, smart, funny, loyal and feisty.

Charlotte Louise Bauer was a struggling assistant at the White Glove Matchmaking agency. She was pretty, smart, funny, loyal and feisty. She had just pulled off the match of the year and was well on her way to more success with hopes for financial stability. Joe Delacroix was heir to the Delacroix fortune. He was gorgeous, funny, loyal to his grandmother and totally guarded for any other relationships. The Client was told in dual POV. DuMond provided humor from the onset with Joe and Charlotte’s initial meeting. She then painted the picture for each life, intermingling the two. We learned early that Joe had obviously experienced a tragedy and loss. We suspect that Charlotte may have some baggage as well. DuMond slowly revealed their past hang ups through scattered flashbacks weaved among the present. Ultimately the past and present collided to round out the full storyline. It was a fairly quick read with dimension and depth. I was hooked on the story from the beginning to the end, enjoying both Joe and Charlotte tremendously. I did, however, feel that once the pasts crossed the present, there should have been more fleshed out to the story. The conflict was immediate and over quickly, yet in reality would have needed some additional attention, so it felt a little glossed over. It also had some editing errors; however, as an ARC copy, I assume those were corrected for print and was not a consideration in my overall rating. All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed it and felt it was a great start to a new series. DuMond also set the stage well for her next series book, The Matchmaker. It will focus on the lovely Violet Accardi, the mob boss’s niece.

Yes, I know you can really only have one meetcute, but whatever. Charlotte didn't know who Joe was. It was fun to watch that development. Fun to watch her shock and surprised. Even better when his grandmother hired her to set him up with someone. Love, laughter, sexy-times, and fun are all here. There's a twist and there are turns and you're going to enjoy each one.

    From the minute Charlotte & Joe met, I was excited for their story and couldn't wait to see how the story turned. The plot twist was awesome, and along with the witty, and at times laugh-out-loud banter, and low drama, made for interesting and fun reading. The cast of characters is a good one.

    This book killed it with the first meeting/impression of joe and Charlotte: “Who are you, the grammar police? Hand off my boob.” “Awfully sorry about that.” He removed his hand and stared down at my chest. “Lovely, really. Warm. Soft.” “What?” “Your breast. From the quick time we’ve spent together I can tell they’re real. Shocking in today’s world.” Joe sometimes has a one track mind, “I’m single. You’re single.

Despite the cover (which strikes me as a dark read), The Client is listed as a Rom-Com. So was it funny? Definitely! Especially in the first half of the book, I laughed out loud quite a few times. Lines like: "Who are you, the grammar police? Hand off my boob." kept a smile on my face as I read. Our heroine, Charlotte, was quirky and sweet, but with an air of sadness about her; my absolute favorite kind! And Joe, our hero, was her perfect match; handsome, clever, rich, but a bit broody because he's also got some baggage. Also, my favorite kind! I was in Rom-Com heaven with all the witty banter between them, not to mention the great chemistry. Plus, Joe's grandmother was a hoot, and Charlotte's clients (she's a matchmaker) and their problems were so well-written and entertaining. Everything was great until I came to the dreaded chapter heading: Three Years Ago. Now I knew for a fact that Joe didn't know Charlotte three years ago, so this was not going to be about them. But it was fine, I totally handled it like a pro - the flashback may have been about a former girlfriend, but it was giving me insight into Joe's current mindset . . . right? And the reader also gets flashbacks from Charlotte's past, so there was equal opportunity annoyance going on, and the author was going somewhere with this . . . . right? Meanwhile, Joe and Charlotte's relationship is moving along, and I start to realize that Joe is a bit of a dick - and he's killing the romance for me. I mean why would he (these are spoilers specific to the plot - enter at your own risk) (view spoiler)[ Why would he take Charlotte to the erotica section of the library? Or tell Charlotte he might make the woman she sets him up with an omelette, like he did her? Or worse, actually go on the date with Violet? (hide spoiler)] No matter if his inner thoughts gave the impression that he was really into Charlotte, his actions and words left a bad taste in my mouth. Then as the end of the story comes closer, the reason for the flashbacks becomes apparent. I have to say that I really appreciated what the author tried to do by giving Joe and Charlotte an unknown, 'deeper' connection - but unfortunately, it fell flat for me. Because while the flashbacks did shed some light on the main characters and their pasts, they weren't connected to their relationship in the present - except in the most obvious way. The 'deep' turned out to be extremely shallow. But wait! It's not all bad! Pamela DuMond is funny and the prose flowed nicely. Because I'm objecting to content instead of style, I can still recommend this one. If you aren't bothered by the same things I am, you can enjoy the laughs - this one has them in spades!

It hasn’t? Okay that’s weird 😳! Well, our heroine, is a happy go lucky, resilient, and “I get knocked down, but I get up again” kinda girl and our hero is a romantic at heart, a fluffy bunny, even though he doesn’t let it show too often now. They have a chance meeting, and “puff” sparks fly. Even though they don’t initially know who or what the other person is, and even when they get to know as to who and what the other person is, there are barriers that need to be overcome, be them emotional or work related. This is a story that’s both funny and raw without being too melodramatic. It tells us how two people, who are destined to be together, will eventually find their way back to each other, even when there are a few bumps and hiccups along the way. It shows how, two people who are “bent not broken” in their own way, still try and lead a normal life and somehow heal each other without a conscious thought or action. I’d recommend to anyone who loves romance and comedy and prefer a low drama and mellowed angst read. This is my first book by the author (and definitely not my last, I am already keeping my eyes on the next one). I was graciously provided with an ARC in exchange for an honest review. Happy Reading.

This has been the first romance novel in a long time that I have actually really enjoyed. I felt a renewed enjoyment of this romance. The humour was there, it wasn’t just everyone saying it was funny and maybe having a one liner or two, it was a genuinely funny book. The characters were easy to love. Joe was sexy and adorable, he had an amazing personality. I felt like the ending was a bit crunched, it was resolved a bit too easily for my taste, I would have liked it to have been a bit longer with more of a work through of the conflict and maybe a confrontation or two. Possibly some sort of justice for the characters, but we didn’t get that. i’m not too upset about that, but i would have really liked to have had that extra layer. This book is for every romance lover who enjoys a sexy, cute and flirty dynamic between two characters. Would definitely recommend giving it a read.

    This book is refreshingly funny and sexy. It is filled with smart, quick-witted banter and easy to love characters. Both Charlotte and Joe are smart and driven, which makes their relationship an intelligent and interesting one.

    This is the first book in the Playing Dirty series and also the first time I’ve read a book from this author. The blurb really piqued my interest and I just couldn’t wait to read it. I was laughing out loud so many times, it’s hilarious. Charlotte and Joe really were meant for each other and I adored his Grandmother, Marte. This really was a feel good, well written story that although had me laughing it also had me shedding a few tears too.

    This is the first book I have read from this author and I loved it. I enjoyed reading Joe and Charlotte's story. I think it was well written. I loved the storyline and the characters. The chemistry between the two characters is explosive and love the banter. I like that it's told from both points of views. Once I started reading this I couldn't put it down. Can't wait to read more from this author and this series. I received an ARC and volunteered to leave a review. This is the first book I have read from this author and I loved it.

    I always love me a lighthearted, funny story with likeable characthers and good writing style, so The Client by Pamela DuMond was just my kind of book. Both Charlotte and Joe won me with their personality, and Joe's grandmother was my secret favorite, gotta love a quirky old lady working her magic in the background. Pamela's writing was very enjoyable, I look forward to read from her again!

    3 Bent, not Broken Stars "Years ago I gave a fuck. But I was all out of fucks to give" Joe on the surface is an easy-going guy, who lives a pretty nice, and comfortable life with pretty girls for one night only - your typical man whore, but he also had his sweety moments. But under all that is a man hunted by his past. Charlotte is a starting match-maker in Chicago, also she's cute, strong and resourceful, and she also had some troubles in her life.

But under all that is a man hunted by his past. Charlotte is a starting match-maker in Chicago, also she's cute, strong and resourceful, and she also had some troubles in her life. So when crazy circumstances and one determined Grandma combine these two together you just wait for the hot romance and a funny disaster. I was in the mood for something lighter, and funnier, so after reading the synopsis for this one I've decided to pick it up. The story was pretty funny, and had it's share of some cliché moments. I had some issues with how the main characters acted (view spoiler)[I mean having sex in your grandma's hospital room was a bit too much for me (some OTT crazy) (hide spoiler)] , but overall it was a solid read with a bit more serious plot that I expected, but pretty interesting. "We’re going wife shopping. Chop chop. I’m your client and Grandma’s not getting any younger.”
