Really enjoyed this addition I felt like although she was mad at him you can clearly see she was still in love with him even after that many years.I liked the side story of her home life being pants but really getting on with his mother That was sweet. I love the characters They are real people with real flaws fighting no their way to be with each other All with a sprinkle of humor. Loved it This was such a great read I loved the characters and can t wait to readfrom this author This is a must read Not for me 1.5 starsI ve liked all of Mrs Baumann books I ve read them all and I enjoyed reading them I really liked the previous one in this series, so I was looking forward to this one Sadly I have to say that I just didn t enjoy this book It started out promising, with the H coming back looking for the h, after being separated for nine years He made mistakes before, choosing his football career over her and that s why she dumped him So he s back in part because she s a PT and he doesn t trust anyone else to work on his knee after he was injured And supposedly he also wants to make amends and try to win her back or that s what we re led to believe But it s not like that First off, he s a selfish, self centered, arrogant jerk, who only cares about what he wants and what he needs, so he ll do anything to get it He doesn t really want her back, he just wants her to rehab his injured knee He even admits time and again that he will choose his career over her Honestly I was at the 50% Mark and I almost put it down for good because I couldn t stand him And I didn t like that the h was a little too weak, and wasn t strong enough to stand up for herself She kept putting up with him I only kept reading because I was hoping this would be one of this books where the characters realize they are wrong and do a 180 and redeem themselves, but it wasn t the case Up until the very end that happens, and sure it was nice to see he puts her first at the end but I spent 95% of this book disliking him so much that I didn t enjoy the read The book is well written, Mrs Baumann is clearly a talented writer, and I look forward to her next book, but just this one wasn t for me. Reviewed at Romance Is AgelessI am equally torn between enjoying Jo and Chad s story and wanting desperately to smack Chad upside the head with his Heisman trophy Talk about totally clueless about the signals you re giving out, and having your priorities a bit backwards To be frank, I really shouldn t have liked Chad one little bit given his attitude in the past and the present Yet there was that something that kept me holding back total judgement on this man I suppose you could say I was waiting for him to get that aha moment, and when he finally did it was totally worth the fear, worry and agony he went through.Jo knew full well that football would always come first for Chad before every one in his life She d broken things off when he did the final unforgivable thing, when she knew there was no hope left for either of them in this relationship Now nearly a decade later, having built a new life, a new career here he is once again sitting in her cafe begging for help in the puppy dog face that Chad had perfected long ago The answer was No Not going to go back to the profession and the man who d given her nothing but heartache Couldn t trust him, couldn t convince herself that she d really stopped loving him Just no But then it always was impossible to say no to this man she still loved.Perfectly Ms Matched was a story that stuck in my mind long after I finished it Yes, I wasn t Chad s biggest fan by a long shot but over the course of the story I got him a bit better He was still wrong, but I understood his thinking better Jo had such heartache to deal with on many levels She s a strong, determined character and one that I also got why she acted as she did In reality it s so damned hard to tell your heart to stop loving someone when they don t turn out the way you wanted Emotions are not logical, talking sense to ourselves does nothing but give us a headache The bottom line for Jo was that she still loved Chad Maybe as an older, a bit wiser woman, but the love had not died on either side Watching them adjust to their new selves was an adventure.I firmly believe that Perfectly Ms Matched is that story you ll either enjoy or want to throw at the wall I don t really think the middle ground on this one is very wide I believe how you perceive Chad will make that difference I enjoyed myself, even while not always liking Chad He is a man who has become so focused on his football career that he truly is clueless about the rest of life in many ways So yes, how you view Chad will probably made the difference for you in this story.I read this story through my Kindle Unlimited subscription.
