Winter 2017 Edition

The Perfect Match: A seasonal feature where I play matchmaker but with books! What happens when you take Book A and combine it with Book B? The answer is Book C!

Happy Valentines Day! 

For this season’s edition of the perfect match, I thought I would keep it heavy on the romantic side of things. So here are some of my favourite romance combinations:

Why This Match?

While Dirty English is a modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice, I couldn’t help but find links to some more modern reads. The heroes in both Beautiful Disaster and Dirty English are fighters who have player-like reputations outside of the ring. But all it takes is a one night encounter with the girl who will change it all for them. But the relationship that forms between Elizabeth and Delcan in Dirty English reminded me a lot of the one in Losing It: where these two people have this great connection from the start that is more intellectual and emotion than just physical.

Why This Match?

As the title of The List implies, Annie (our heroine) is set out to do a list of things she thinks every college girl needs to do know that she is out of the house from her protective family. Bianca from All the Ways You Saved Me also has a list of things she wants to do left to her from her deceased BFF before she does her family’s plans for her. That’s how she Ian and Ian reminded me a lot of the hero from Confess, Owen. Both are super nice guys but both are hiding major secrets from their new lady friend.

Why This Match?

It’s been a long time since a book made me laugh out loud as much as Tangled did but The Matchmaker’s Playbook definitely succeeded. There’s just something so charming (and hilarious) about seeing a guy who thinks he knows it all get kicked on his ass by the girl who is his perfect match. But the concept of The Matchmaker’s Playbook–transforming a girl to get the guy of her dreams”–reminded me a lot of Crushed. I love when plans backfire!
