✿ My Review ✿





Another amazing book by Rachel Van Dyken!

After witnessing what happens when someone doesn't fight for the one they love and decide to settle with someone else, Ian, with is best friend Lex, creates Wingmen Inc., a dating service that helps college girls land the men they love.
Everything seems to go well in Ian's life, until he meets Blake Olson, his new client. Although it seems to be an impossible mission for Blake land her crush, Ian does is best. But after spending time with Blake and getting to know her, Ian is in danger of breaking the Wingmen Inc.'s number one rule: don't fall for a client.
Will Ian help Blake land her crush? Or will he give on to temptation?






The Matchmaker's Playbook is an amazing book. It has a funny and sexy story, full of drama and emotions. You'll ride this rollercoaster ride of emotions and you'll enjoy it. The banter between Ian and Blake is awesome.
I loved that the story was told from Ian's POV.

I loved Ian! He is hot, sarcastic, arrogant, and cocky, but he's also very sweet and romantic. He is a true hero. But he doesn't know if he is good enough for Blake and ends up messing things between them a lot of times. His inner musing is fantastic and made me laugh a lot. I loved watching him grow trough out the story.
Blake is a tomboy. And she dresses like a tomboy. She is in love with her best friend and decides to use Wingmen Inc. to make him notice her. But she didn't expect to meet Ian. She is very innocent and sweet. I loved how she broke out of her cocoon and became a confident young woman.

The Matchmaker's Playbook is another must read by Rachel Van Dyken. It is flawlessly written and Rachel's writing style makes the reader connect with the story and the characters.
Can't wait to read Lex's story!








✿ Excerpt ✿


"What are you doing in my room?" Her voice was accusatory low, and kind of sexy—if I closed my eyes and thought of it belonging to a different body.

"You mean Gabi's room?"

"No." Her nostrils flared. "My room."

"And you are?" I held out my hand, because I was a gentleman first, a certifiable man-whore second, and because my grandma used to swat my ass every time I introduced myself without a firm handshake.

Her eyes widened as she stared at my naked body.

"Fine," I said with a half shrug and then stood. "But I literally only have three minutes before Gabi hands me my ass. You want the bed or the floor, since you're already there?"

And Gabi said I wasn't charitable enough? Damn, look at me, just ready to hand out orgasms for free.

"What?" New girl's wide roaming eyes finally lifted to meet mine. Damn, some people charge for that kind of staring. "What are you talking about?"

"Okay, now we're down to about two and a half minutes. I'm not gonna say it won't be difficult, but I could probably do something that would at least conjure up a little panting. Maybe a scream or two."

"Scream?" she said, her eyebrows drawing together. "What are you talking about? And why are you naked?"

"I was looking for clothes before you barged in on me."

"In my room."

"Look." I glanced at my watch. "Now we're really getting into dangerous territory. I've been nicknamed Superman in bed, but I'm not actually sure I can do a repeat of 2014, though I'd love to add another instance to the record books. So if we're going to do this, you need to hurry up and take at least your shirt off."

"Are you" — her cheeks reddened — "a stripper for the party?"

Hmm. The idea had merit. I could do a free show, which would make me a saint, considering what I typically charge each client.

"No." I held out my hand. When she didn't take it, I took it upon myself to lift her from the floor and onto her feet.

She kicked. She even tried to bite me.

"There we go. A little enthusiasm!"

"Put me down!" She jerked away from me.

I set her away from me and crossed my arms. "Sorry, time's up. You have ten seconds left, and even I can't perform a miracle of this" — I pointed at her baggy shirt, baggy shirts, and, holy shit, was she wearing tube socks? — "caliber." I swallowed. "Just a guess, but were you homeschooled?"

Her face reddened with either embarrassment or anger. "No! And I live here. This is my room!"

"But it's Gabi's room."

"We switched this morning!" She stomped her foot. The girl was wearing old-school Adidas flip-flops.

They still made those? Huh. It was like seeing a real live T. rex.

"Why are you staring at my feet?"

"They have to be worth a mint by now." I tapped my chin and continued staring at the ugly rubber flip-flops. "Impressive. Really impressive."

"Are you even listening to me?" she shrieked. "Put some clothes on and get out of my room. Or don't put clothes on and just get out of my room. Whichever."

"Exactly." I nodded seriously. "I was just about to do that when you tumbled in. Now," I said slowly, "you say you switched rooms?"

She nodded.

"Which makes Gabi's room... ?"

She pointed down the hall. I had a brief moment of recollection in which Gabi had mentioned something about switching to the smaller room because the two new roommates were going to share.

"Ah, you must be Serena."

"Blake," she growled. "Serena's blonde."

I'd have bet she was hot too. Serena was a hot-girl name. Blake? It was what you named a girl that you thought was going to be a boy and therefore projected all your boyhood dreams onto her. Ten bucks that her dad had made her play every sport in the book and she was either the product of divorce or single parenting.

"Why are you still standing here... naked?" This time she looked away, covering her face with her hands.

"What's wrong with being naked? You do know you were born that way, right?"

"Just" — she didn't look again, but pointed at the door — "go."

"Your loss." I laughed. "Could have rocked your world."

"My world doesn't need rocking."

I paused midway through the door and turned back, moving in close, making sure my breath would blow across her neck as I whispered, "Now that's where you're wrong, Blake. Every girl needs to allow her world to be rocked, at least once. Or if said rocking is coming from me? Twice."





✿ Meet Lex ✿


Lex "suck my balls" Luther

Every hero needs a villain right? I mean thats how some of the best stories are written, so why not have one in real life? You'd think that being a certified genius would be enough, but for Lex, it isn't, Poly Sci just isn't what it used to be you know? So he seduces women by day and hacks computers by night.

If Ian is the beauty behind Wingman Inc. then Lex is the brains.

Only, he's hella hot too.

Seriously, just ask the two girls currently vying for his attention in bed while he tries to take down the Pentagon.

Its a tough job, but hey, someones gotta do it!

✾ Synopsis ✾


Former nurse Summer Jacobs has seen her fair share of suffering, but she never expected tragedy to hit so close to home. After watching her husband die in the MMA ring, Summer spends the next two years fighting her way through the darkness. The last thing she needs is another hardheaded athlete turning her life upside down. But that's exactly what happens when she meets a gridiron star who's as skilled at stealing hearts as he is at snagging passes.

Carolina Cougars wide receiver Evan Townsend usually has no problem winning fans, so he's intrigued when Summer shoots down his go-to plays for winning a woman's attention. Never one to back down from a challenge, Evan turns up the heat, setting off sparks that neither can deny. But as his slow seduction begins to chase away Summer's pain, he gets the feeling that someone is desperate to keep them apart. Now Evan will do anything to protect her — because he never misses a chance to make a perfect catch.

✿ Excerpt ✿


Once out the door, I breathed a sigh of relief and slowed my pace. "Come on, Summer, stop acting like an idiot."

"Talking to yourself now?" Evan teased from behind.

I stopped mid-step and closed my eyes. "Do you enjoy provoking me?"

When he circled around me, I opened my eyes. "Not really, but I do love seeing you blush. I didn't realize I had that effect on you."

"You seriously are full of yourself, aren't you?" How could I be so stupid? There was no way in hell I could hide my face now. I didn't want him to know how flustered he made me.

Chuckling, he shook his head and kept his gray eyes solely on mine. "I'm really not. I was just hoping to hear your laugh again. I guess I didn't get enough of it yesterday."

"So, this is you flirting with me? What do you expect to gain from that?"

He took a step closer and smiled. "For starters, I was hoping to persuade you to come to my party after the game Saturday night."

My heart thumped wildly in my chest. I could feel the sweat pouring down my back. "Like what? A date?"

"Only if you want it to be. I just figured I'd save you the trouble of having to ward off my teammates. I can name three of the guys who are interested in you. My threats to stop their advances can only go so far."

"What if I didn't want to go to your party? I can easily just tell them I'm not interested."

He nodded and crossed his arms over his chest. "You could, but that doesn't mean shit to these guys. They'll keep hounding you until you give in. They love the chase."

"Just like you," I retorted with a smile.

"What can I say? I'm relentless when I want something." I sucked in a breath and bit my lip. Did he really want me like that? The thought made everything inside of me tighten. It was too dangerous to think of him like that.

"So are you trying to save me from your friends or are you really wanting me to join you? I know how you guys work, and I don't want to be a part of some game you're playing to get girls."

His grin faded, gaze hard. "I don't play games, Summer. I may have in the past, but I would never do that to you. Have I ever given you the impression that you can't trust me?"

Sighing, I shook my head. I felt like such an idiot. "No, and I'm sorry for being presumptuous. It's just..." I paused and bit down on the side of my cheek.

"It's just what?" he asked in all seriousness.

"It's just this is all new to me. All I've ever known is Austin. Being around you makes me nervous. I'm not like the girls you've brought into the restaurant. If it's sex you want, you can forget it. I'm not one of your groupies." For a second there, I thought he was at a loss for words, but then he belted out in laughter. Ouch, that hurt. "I'm glad I could amuse you."

When he straightened up, he took off his hat and ran his hands through his hair. And again, my heart sped up at the sight. Shit. "Damn, you are a fiery one. And just so we're clear, I'm not trying to fuck you or trying to put another notch in my belt. Believe it or not, I'm actually interested in something else."

"What is that, exactly?"

"I don't know, but I'm hoping you can help me figure it out." Grabbing my hand, he pulled me toward his truck. "Let's go."
