Publisher's Summary

Their matchmaker folks think it'd be great
If Natalie and Evan would date
Watch them say, "No thanks,"
But plow into the banks
Of the slippery slope where they skate

Natalie East and Evan Lee are determined to stay single. Their parents are just as determined to get them together.
Nat, still reeling from the abrupt end of a three-year relationship, needs to prove to her mother that they are both capable of enjoying successful single lives. Her conventional mother pressures her to date their new friends' self-indulgent and status-obsessed son. The interference drives Natalie wild.
Evan worked like a demon to launch his career. Now he's ready for a devilish amount of fun. While he was achieving success, his parents planned his future; they gush that Natalie is sweet, steady, and ready to settle down. Each message from his family hacks away at his joking, easy-going façade.
When Nat and Evan involuntarily connect over coffee, neither is what the other expected. As their friendship grows and passions emerge, will they risk losing their independent lives? Are they prepared for a journey from lighthearted friends to steamy lovers...or more?

Overbearing Parents Try Their Hands at Matchmaking

I really enjoyed this story, I feel like it could have been a little shorter and still had the same effect but I did enjoy getting to know everyone a little better than I would have if it were a shorter book.

Natalie met Evan’s parents on a recent vacation with her mother and the 3 parents are convinced that Nat and Evan would make a great couple. And it just so happens that Evan is moving to Houston for work and wouldn’t Natalie be the perfect person to show him around.

Natalie and Evan are both happy being single and are so focused on their careers that they don’t want a relationship. But Evan turns out needing a ‘plus one’ and doesn’t know who to call so he caves and calls Natalie. They agree to meet for coffee first and lets just say their first meeting didn’t go as expected.

Their eventual friendship helps turn each of them in to stronger, better people and things seem to go well between them when the parents aren’t getting in the way too much.

This book is part of a series but can be read as a stand alone, you’ll mostly just miss details about some of Natalie’s closest friends.

I enjoyed Amy Rubinate’s performance and would listen to another book read by her.

If you’re looking for a lighthearted HEA with kind, meddling parents, you will enjoy this book.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

Really Enjoyed this Book

Any additional comments?

Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Fun, lighthearted, humorous and a very enjoyable story with no cliffhanger and a HEA.

Even though this book is part of a series, each story can be listened to as a stand alone book. The only thing missing would be the backstory's of Natalie's friends.

While not an original plot it was delivered in a well written, really entertaining, interesting and enjoyable story.

Natalie and Evan make a deal to fool their meddling matchmaking parents while they are each secretly falling for each other. Both Natalie and Evan were great characters. Loved the limericks.

Amy Rubinate as always did a fantastic job with the narration. Very pleasant and easy to listen to voice. Great character voices. I have never listened to a book she has narrated and been disappointed.
