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?

Nice Romantic Book

This is my first book by Melanie Greene. Although it is the third book in the series it is a stand alone book. The the author did a good job with the characters and their story lines. I did like how the author used the parents of the main couple to add some comedy to it. Once I got on into the book I began to gain more interest in the book. It is a good listen and I think the readers will enjoy it.

"Natalie East and Evan Lee are determined to stay single. Their parents, recent friends, are just as determined to get them together."

After some talking and with reluctance Natalie agrees to meet Evan for coffee and both are surprised that neither is what the other expected. Their friendship grows and passion emerges between the two of them. Will Natalie and Evan risk giving up their independent lives? Will they find that what they thought was important at one time, isn't now? Are they ready for what is happening between them?

I was provided this audio-book at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom. Having said that, I am going to listen to the rest of the series to hear about all the other characters.

Amy Rubinate is one of my favourite narrators and she did a great job with the delivery of the story

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.
