A country music heartthrob and his long-lost love walk into a wedding...

Will Truitt grew up living a country song. His momma died, his daddy went to prison, and his dog ran away. Now, as superstar Billy Brenton, his life should be pretty dang good. But he hasn't been able to write a decent song in months. Crashing a wedding in a quirky little bridal-obsessed town is supposed to provide inspiration to get his career back on track. Instead, all he finds are regrets when he comes face-to-face with the only woman to ever crush his heart.

Lindsey Castellano gave up on love a long time ago. As a cutthroat divorce attorney on the outskirts of a town devoted to brides, weddings, and happily ever after, she's honed her skills at avoiding love, commitment, and inevitable heartbreak. Or so she thought until Will Truitt reappears in her life.

When Lindsey shattered Will's heart fifteen years ago, she'd been a sorority girl on her way to the top. He'd been a lowly janitor with 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?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this fun read! Matched by Jamie Farrell was an amazing read. I've read Ms Farrell's previous books and not only is this well written book Lindsay and Will's story, but also a visit with old friends from previous books. I love the characters in all of Jamie Farrell's books, but she has outdone herself with this book. Ms Farrell has a flair with dialog and it shines in Lindsay and Will's story. Matched is loaded with humor, drama, a little spice and even a little woo woo (paranormal.) I loved, loved, loved this book and can't wait to read more from Jamie Farrell in the future. Matched is book 2 in the Misfit Brides Of Bliss Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. I received a copy of this book for review purposes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Romance with quirkiness added to it Matched is a romantic but fun and quirky book. A divorce lawyer who has a gift for knowing if a couple is a good or bad match with country rock singer whom she had jilted because she had "seen" that they were not a good match when they were nineteen. I thought that this was really unique and fun. Add on a song that Will wrote for Lindsey about his snow angel's smiles. That was really a hoot. One of the secondary characters Kimmie was really interesting and funny. If you love romance with quirkiness added to it, you'll love this book. I also enjoyed reading about Mikey and Dahlia again. I had read their story in Smittened and it was great reading about their story from another angle. To quote one of the reviewer (Carol), "This is a story of second chances at love and accepting who you are and finding your place in life. The place that makes those smiley faces smile and makes our hearts sing." I think Carol really described this story very aptly. I was gifted this book by the author in exchange for an honest review. All conclusions are my own.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars Facing life with a positive attitude has managed to get Lindsey to the point that she is content with where her goals took her. Will has lived a life that allows him see things the way they really are. Having had to fight for his dreams he appreciates where he ended up. Yet each has regrets about love and the one that got away. Jamie Farrell's story of overcoming adversity, regrets and second chances is a story that surprised me. The way it's presented is that Lindsey has this great life, which she does but to me she came across as going through the motions. Will is happy with the achievements he has made in his life but wants a second chance at love. The characters existed without each other but when together they realized what had been missing all along. I received an ARC of Matched in exchange for an honest review. Somewhat cheesy but a whole lot of fun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommended ***4.5 out of 5 stars*** I found Jamie Farrell's books when I was judging a contest and read Southern Fried Blues. I was immediately hooked on her voice and couldn't wait to read more books from her. The Misfit Brides of Bliss is a laugh out loud funny and sexy series. I swear I've never laughed so hard while reading a romance. Matched was such a fun read for me. I loved both Will and Lindsey as individuals and as a couple. I love a reunion story and Matched was so well done. Will is now country super star Billy Brenton, and Lindsey is now a hot-shot divorce lawyer helping to bring to rights bad relationships. I love that Lindsey is a matchmaker at heart, even if she doesn't want to admit to it. Will and Lindsey have amazing chemistry and I loved that when he is around her, he hears music and is able to write his songs. Seriously they are so cute together considering they are so very different. I really felt like their differences helped them to work as a couple. Lindsey is so pragmatic and Will seems like he goes with the flow so much better. The chemistry between Lindsey and Will is super hot and I loved they laughed together as much as they loved together. Honestly part of the reason I love this series so much is one of the secondary characters, Kimmie. She makes me laugh so hard and is the best friend both Lindsey and her sister Natalie. The girlfriend time in the books is every bit as important to the story as the romance. I also love how the town of Bliss plays such an important role in the story. The town is really a character unto itself. Matched was a great addition to the Misfit Brides of Bliss series and I can't wait to read more books in the future. I highly recommend Matched to anyone who loves a funny, sweet, and sexy contemporary romance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great story! This is the second book in the Misfit Brides series and is wonderful. It is nice to go back to Bliss and catch up with all the crazy characters. It can be read as a stand alone because it is the second chance love story of Will(Billy) and Lindsey but I recommend reading Blissed also because it is a wonderful story. Lindsey and Will met when they were just nineteen and meet again at Natalie's, Lindsey's sisters wedding. Lindsey doesn't think she can do long term relationships and Will knows that Lindsey is the only girl for him. She believed in him when nobody else seemed too and now he wants to do the same for her. He just needs to help her see what he sees when he looks at her. They end up roommates due to the rental house Will was in going up in flames. Lindsey gives Will three weeks and he hopes that will be enough time to change her mind to forever. This is a wonderful book because it blends humor, bittersweet moments and sweet romance. I highly recommend this book. I was given a free copy for my honest review.
