She turns to Toujour, a matchmaking service, to help her get back into the dating world. Taylor, a firefighter, is also a client of Toujour and is one of 3 guys matched up with Kate. What Kate doesn't realize until their first date, is that Taylor is the firefighter she met the night her house burned down and her husband died, but Taylor remembers her. Kate is determined to leave the past behind and doesn't want any reminders of her deceased husband. What will it take for Kate to give Taylor a chance? Is Taylor willing to the necessary changes in his life for Kate to give him a chance? This is a clean romance story. I really got into this book from the beginning and read it in one evening. Looking forward to reading more in the No Match For Love series. MEET YOUR MATCH--3 stars This novella tells the story of how Brooke and Zoe became friends, how Brooke and Luke became best friends and why Brooke becomes a Matchmaker. It also explains how Brooke came up with her rules for her friendship with Luke so they would stay friends and didn't become boyfriend and girlfriend. Brooke is going through a really rough time for anyone, especially a teenager. Her parents have separated and are divorcing because her dad cheated and now that woman is pregnant, add to that she and her mom recently moved so now she's at a new school. Thankfully Luke turns out to be less of a jerk than he appears when she first meets him. He listens to her and helps her through this rough time, plus he helps her out when his "friend" Chris tries to take advantage of Brooke at the school dance. Since this wasn't the first No Match For Love book I've read (it's my 3rd) I liked finding out how their tradition of eating popcorn and critiquing TV shows together started. I didn't like how Brooke's mom's anger at her soon-to-be-ex had her putting all men down. This doesn't do Brooke any favors as she has to listen to this until she graduates and moves away from home. She ends up having to come to terms with this in another book. This is not my favorite of the No Match for Love series but it sets up things for Brooke and Luke in another book MISTLETOE MATCH--4.5 stars. This is the latest book in the No Match for Love series. I've read them all and this is one of my favorites. I felt for Michelle when she accidentally went into the men's room because I did that once at a Walmart. I wasn't tipsy from champagne like her, but it wasn't my regular Walmart and I didn't notice the bathrooms were flipped opposite of "my" Walmart. At least I got out of there without running into any guys coming to use the facilities, unlike poor Michelle. Back to my review--So Michelle and Austin aka "bathroom guy" go for a walk in the garden at the hotel where each of their respective Christmas parties are taking place. They end up standing under some mistletoe and "to avoid bad luck" they kiss. It's all uphill from an amazing kiss. Michelle hasn't had the best of luck with men and Austin was married for 16 years when his wife (Victoria) left him and their 3 kids for her personal trainer. Austin recently accepted a job as a marketing director for a pharmaceutical company (that still uses animal testing) which required a move to California, so in addition to dealing with their parents' recent divorce (and their mother's lack of interest in them) they also had to adjust to a major move and new schools. I really felt for these kids and loved how Michelle interacted with them. Michelle is a teacher who's a vegan and also a member of Their Only Voice, an animal rights group who just happens to be targeting the pharmaceutical company where Austin is employed. Back at school following the Christmas party she gets a new student--Sydney, Austin's 7 yr. daughter!! Can Michelle's life get any more complicated? Both of the main characters are very likable. Michelle is great with kids and loves animals. She rescued her dog when she was just a puppy, made blind by cosmetic testing. Austin is a great dad and a good guy who doesn't speak ill of his ex-wife in front of his children (even though she totally deserves it) and follows his gut and put his job on the line when things didn't seem to add up at work. They both jumped to conclusions about the other based on each of their previous failed relationships, but then decided to talk it out, and admit to it instead of throwing a possibly great relationship out the window. The Their Only Voice people got on my nerves. They were all over her for the picture of her kissing Austin when she didn't even know who he was at the time, and expected her to risk her job when she had to accept the donation from Austin at the school assembly, but didn't bother to call or check on her when Bella was hit by a car and she had to make the painful decision to let her go. Meanwhile Austin sends her flowers and went to the shelter to find her another dog because he knew how upset she was.

    Strike A Match: Very fast-paced, more of a novella than a book. There are a lot of heavy issues dealt with for both the main characters, and I kinda felt that those issues were pretty heavy to be dealt with satisfactorily in such a short space of this story. Still, the characters are well-developed and have great interactions with each other. There are also some peripheral characters that were very well-developed and play a good role in the book. The matchmaker aspect of the series is very prese Strike A Match: Very fast-paced, more of a novella than a book.

Still, the characters are well-developed and have great interactions with each other. There are also some peripheral characters that were very well-developed and play a good role in the book. The matchmaker aspect of the series is very present in this story, unlike other stories in the series, where it's faded into the background or hardly mentioned at all. Overall, a great, entertaining, clean, and very quick read, though probably more 3.5 stars for me this time around. Meet Your Match: Cute introduction novella to the main characters and a few peripheral characters from the first book and the basis/foundation for the series. If you read this first before any of the other books in the series, then the ending may surprise you, but if you've read the other books, then you know where it's going, though it in no way detracts from the way the story is told. It hints at Brooke and Luke's "rules" from the first book and also shows how Brooke, Luke, and Zoey all meet, as well as Brooke's background with her parents, etc. (things that come up in subsequent books). This is pretty short and a very fast read, could be read in one sitting. Mistletoe Match: This one has only a very minor mention of any connection to the matchmaking company so it could really be a stand-alone book; if you haven't read any of the other books in this series, you wouldn't feel like you were missing out on any details by reading this one out of order. It does mention right at the very beginning that Michelle previously had used the Toujour matchmaking service and dated Luke, who is featured in quite a few of the other books, but that's really about it. It stands on its own really well, with great characters, action, plot line, and the mistletoe theme at the beginning and the very end, though the fact that it takes place around Christmas does get a bit lost with all the focus of the story mainly centering around Michelle's animal rights activism and that conflict with Austin's job and how that affected their relationship developing. There are lots of hurdles/conflicts in this story between the characters, including Austin's kids, so there is lots of depth and while at times the story might feel cheesy or a cozy read, there's a lot going on and I think the author dealt with all the issues (moral, political, relationship, etc.) in a manner in which all readers can relate too without it feeling like a very heavy book and, instead, just a light, easy, enjoyable read. Overall rating for this box set: 4 stars -- All the stories are fairly short, more novellas than a full-length book, so this is a very quick read, each book and for the entire box set. Clean, entertaining, and fun stories. ***I am on this author's review team. However, two of the books in this set I purchased on my own and only received one of them as a review copy from the author. I was in no other way compensated for my review. All opinions expressed here are entirely my own.***

    No Match for Love Volume 2 Box Set includes three books: Strike a Match, Meet Your Match, and Mistletoe Match. Each story was enjoyable to listen to. Strike a Match Kate's life completely changes when her house burns down. Eighteen months later, she is on a date with the same firefighter she met that fateful night. Taylor agreed to the matchmaking due to a friend. When he realizes Kate is the woman he has thought about for months, he looks forward to this date. He screws up though.

Strike a Match Kate's life completely changes when her house burns down. Eighteen months later, she is on a date with the same firefighter she met that fateful night. Taylor agreed to the matchmaking due to a friend. When he realizes Kate is the woman he has thought about for months, he looks forward to this date. He screws up though. Can he get Kate to see him again? Can there be more to this than just a fantasy? I really enjoyed this story. It gives the good feeling I look for in a book. I highly recommend it! Meet Your Match Meet Your Match is a novella that introduces you to the characters who will be in book one. This starts the series off when Brooke meets Luke when they are teenagers. It was a good read. Mistletoe Match Michelle is an animal rights activist and vegan. Austin works for a pharmaceutical company that still does animal testing. So when they meet and share a magical kiss under the mistletoe, everything is fine. But then they learn more about each other, and it gives them challenges every step of the way. Both already have been burned in past relationships. Will they have a chance for love? Or will their differences be too big to overcome? Another great story by this author!

    This series is a favorite of mine. This story is engrossing and sweet. Taylor and Kate meet under tragic circumstances, but Taylor is instantly drawn to Kate. 18 months later they're set up on a date, where Kate is shocked to find that she knows Taylor. Then things get dramatic. Taylor is a nice guy with a hero complex. Kate needs to be saved, even though she doesn't want to be. They make a engaging couple you can't help but root for. I do wish the book was longer, but it doesn't disappoint. For This series is a favorite of mine. This story is engrossing and sweet.

Brooke having mixed feelings about Luke makes for a strange relationship, but a real friendship built on love was started. It's a sweet, romantic story that makes you feel good. Full of drama, sweetness and sadness this story has a lot going on. The characters are sweet and likable with trust issues. The storyline is both heartbreaking and warm, with a very satisfying ending.

    My review is for Mistletoe Match, though I have read and loved all of them! Such a wonderfully romantic Christmas read! I was hooked from book one but this one pulled me back all on its own. The only thing that could make this better would be a nice cup of hot cocoa and a lit Christmas tree. I will have to re-read this next Christmas!

    I really love this series. 3 great different love stories that make me feel good. I love Tiffany Williams reading the books. She goes from one character to another so easily. I think Ms. Armstrong does a great job writing these stories. I received a free audio copy from the author. I love audiobooks because I can listen while doing other things.

Not my age group, but this is a cute story about how high school-aged Brooke became a matchmaker. Another well written, interesting story with believable characters and storyline. Has a preview of what the book is about, which I appreciate knowing before I read any book. Warning: lots of spoilers about this disappointing, unrealistic story: Mistletoe Match #6 - Whoa, I had major problems with this novella and I love this series. Michelle should strive to be a witch, then she wouldn't be an extremely stupid and prejudicial, emotional idiot. But she does share these traits with the members of Their Only Voice with their pathetic attitude and rabid fanaticism, which blocks any attempts to compromise and solutions. I felt like I was watching CNN instead of reading a book. Ruth, while a good business person and her heart in the right place, to stop testing on animals, she's ..."an expert at twisting his [Austin] meaning and inciting wrath." (Page 59.) Page 57: "But Michelle tuned him out She was done listening." (A never had a chance to present anything at a meeting with TOV where they constantly attacked him personally (?) and his employer (which is the real target). Page 57: "He represented everything she detested." (M kissed him at their first meet, considered him a good father, and now she detests him?) Page 78 - 79: "It's because of you Bella's dead. ... If I hadn't wasted precious minutes listening to you, Bella might've made it to surgery in time." (M rescued the blind B ten years earlier from a testing lab where she worked as a student. B was a hit and run victim since M didn't check the yard before letting B out. A saw the car that crushed B but stopped to get B and M to the vet. M, understandably distraught, irrationally attacks A as the killer.) Enough about M, let's talk about A. He's an idiot when it comes to M. He's a rational person working at a drug company as the new PR director. He doesn't ask for a tour of the labs and test animals until late into the story. How can a PR person not tour the facilities, it's part of their job to know how the company operates so the facts can be presented. His next strike: he compares M to his ex, a real piece of work. They are not alike, but this is the excuse he uses to love M. While M has good qualities, I still wouldn't let this emotional nutjob near my children. She's already proven she's extremely irrational and prejudice. Like I said previously, this book read like the headlines and stories on media sources. Page 149: "But she'd refused to trust him when he asked for time to explain, and that wasn't something he could look past." (A does a good deed, but M won't give him time since she wants it NOW and then won't let him explain when he gives in to her; all in the same conversation. Did I mention emotional and irrational already?) Page 157: "I can't be with someone who doesn't trust me. It isn't healthy for anyone involved. Constantly questioning your partner's motives destroys a relationship." (A tells M, but what does he do? He admits his love and takes her back.) I found too much of this story to be unrealistic, characters and behaviors. Just because you believe in something and want to make a difference; irrational, emotional, fanatical behavior are not acceptable means to accomplish goals. You must work with and respect others to come up with workable solutions. A disappointing story from a really interesting writer, but you can't win em all. 2*

This entire series is a hoot--lighthearted, sweet and fun, with the exactly right HEA (Happily Ever After) for each tale. ~~~SUPPLEMENT (After hearing the AUDIO version)~~~ I had forgotten how varied and rich is Ms Armstrong's imagination. Each of these plots is strong in a different way and presents really serious issues (spousal abuse--you don't have to be beaten with a fist--a voice can be just as deadly; severe allergies; substance abuse; divorce; high school relationships; animal testing; conflicts of interest/ethics) without dragging you into the doldrums. Her delicate touch brings many of these issues under scrutiny, offering insights almost in passing as she focuses on creating as romantic a love story as "Cinderella" (ooh, look at all the issues that one plays with!) in a reality-based context. By which I mean actual real life as opposed to scripted over-the-top drama. And the vocalization offered by narrator Tiffany Williams simply enhances the stories.
