Lindsey Castellano couldn't ask for more. She's the most successful divorce lawyer ever raised in Bliss. (Never mind that she's the only one.) She's her nephew's favorite aunt. (For the moment, anyway.) And thanks to a little gift (or curse) from the universe, she's an expert at avoiding love, commitment, and inevitable heartbreak. Or so she thought until the night of her sister's wedding.
Will Truitt might've grown up living a country song - his momma died, his daddy went to prison, and his dog ran away - but as an adult, he's been blessed by the country rock gods. Being Billy Brenton on stage isn't an honor he takes lightly. He likes to give back what fame has given him, which is how he finds himself happily crashing a wedding in this quirky little bridal-obsessed town. The one thing he isn't counting on, though, is colliding with the only girl he ever let himself love.
It's been 15 years since Lindsey shattered his heart. Then, she'd been a sorority girl on her way to the top, and he'd been a lowly janitor with a little bit of a dream. Now he's on top of the world, and she's the last person he should need or want.
But she's the only person who has ever inspired his music. And he's the only man she's never been able to forget. Have the years made them wiser, stronger, and better able to love, or this time, will they simply crash and burn harder?

Quick Thoughts: This is going to be one of my top reads of 2017. Very seldom does a straight contemporary romance make my list but this had it all. It was funny, charming, smart-ass filled, and delightful. I LOVED Will and Lindsey! Their chemistry was fantastic but I also loved that their path was not easy. PLUS, that end was sooooooooooo perfect for the two of them. Especially Lindsey, who you just have to love! All the side characters added to the charm and I can't wait to continue the series.
Narrated by: Karen White /Length: 10 hrs and 37 mins
Karen is an excellent fit for this series. She has that breezy, quirky, yet stubborn type of voice that can match all the women and their attitudes. She very much sales the quirkiness of the town and nailed that last section which just had to be fun to record!

Matched by Jamie Farrell
Where does Matched rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I gave it 4 stars.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Matched?
I would have to say the boyfriend competition.
What about Karen White’s performance did you like?
She did a fine job with the accents and attitudes of the characters.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Any additional comments?
MATCHED by Jamie Farrell was a really fun book that I can highly recommend and that can be read as a stand-alone story. However it is a great follow up to Blissed, the first book in the series, which I also highly recommend. This series is set in a town called Bliss where the whole focus of the townfolk is about love and weddings. Sort of like a Santa's village idea, but all year round and about weddings and with cast a delightfully quirky characters whose antics will make you smile and that you can't help but love.
Matched is a second chance love story featuring Lindsey Castellano, a daughter of Bliss, who lives in and works as a divorce lawyer in the next town over because there are no divorce lawyers in Bliss. Lindsey sees her mission as saving people from their mistakes so they can have a second chance to find true love.
Will Truitt AKA Billy Brenton, first met Lindsey when she was still in college. They were both young, but he fell hard for the girl who made him believe his dreams could come true. Now he's a country music superstar and mostly due to the songs his "Angel" inspired. The ones she inspired when she broke his heart and even so, she's still the only woman he's ever loved. So when he finds himself in the town of Bliss as a favor to a friend and realizes the wedding he's there for is that of Lindsay's younger sister Natalie? He's more than ready to try for a second chance with his "Angel" and this time there will be no walking away.
I listened to the audio version of this book. Which made this great story even better. The narrator did a fabulous job on the accents and attitude of the characters. 4 stars
