Review @Lori_Brighton - Make Me a Match by Lori Brighton (The Matchmaker #1)

Make Me a Match
The Matchmaker #1
by Lori Brighton

Goodreads blurb:  Teenager Emma Watts doesn’t believe in true love. After all, she’s worked for two years in her family’s P.I. business catching cheating husband’s in the act. Then Owen Emerson arrives (while she’s in the middle of a stakeout, no less) claiming Emma has inherited a deceased aunt’s ability to supernaturally match soul-mates. Emma wants nothing to do with her aunt’s powers, nor with the frustrating and perfectly handsome Owen Emerson. Too bad she’s stuck with both for the rest of her life.

Owen Emerson is a Protector, a person fated to protect Matchmakers for eternity. A guy who does things by the book, Owen figures he’ll rationally explain to Emma her newfound abilities and they can have the professional relationship he’d had with her much older aunt. But as he soon finds out Emma Watts is anything but professional. Fortunately, when she has her first vision matching two friends she has no alternative but to believe Owen’s claims. But Owen isn’t the only one interested in Emma. When the supernatural world discovers how to exploit Emma’s matchmaking abilities for their own, she has no choice but to trust the man who holds her life, and her heart, in his hands.   

About the Author:  As a child, thoughts of far-off places and adventure consistently kept Lori up late at night. After graduating high school, she came to the conclusion that there was no better way to seek adventure and nourish her love of history than to become an archaeologist. She went on to receive a degree in anthropology, but digging in the dirt during humid Midwestern summers wasn’t exactly as fun as she thought it would be.

Instead, she went to work in an air conditioned museum where she spent her days surrounded by creepy Victorian animal mounts. Still, she wasn’t satisfied.

Deciding the people in her imagination were slightly more exciting than the dead things in a museum basement, she set out to write her first romance novel. That book was soundly rejected. As was the next. Years went by and she began to wonder if she’d ever see her dream fulfilled. Until one day she came up with an idea for a book that brought together her love of history and adventure: a book now titled Wild Heart. Since Wild Heart's release, Lori has written Historical Romance, Contemporary Paranormal Romance and Young Adult.

Lori currently resides in the Southern U.S., where she juggles her time between a husband, a son, a golden retriever, a cat and the many, many people in her imagination.

My Thoughts – 3 out of 5 Unicorns - I liked it!!!

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!  Yes, I got a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book!

The cover is interesting though I doesn’t really represent Emma.  This is the first book in this series, and it is definitely left in a place that you expect another book.

This is my first book by Lori that I’ve read though I do own most of The Mind Readers series to read in the future.  I like Lori’s writing style and the premise of this book.  It was slow in parts, but this happens when I start a new series sometimes.  I think it is set up at a good spot for the next book. 

Emma is independent and questions everything which I like because you should never just accept what a stranger tells you.  Owen is another story.  I’m annoyed that he misled Emma, but he does sort of redeem himself.  I’m interested in seeing what becomes of the pair if book 2 comes out.  I have no idea when this might happen though.

People who like YA Paranormal Romance will like reading this book!

Interested in reading???
