Ember Alzate is a fantastic matchmaker with one big problem: she can’t find the perfect mate for herself! Alzate family legend says that when she kisses “the One” she’ll hear a mysterious humming in her head. Well, Ember’s kissed a lot of guys and she’s never heard a thing. Now, instead of searching for herself, she vows to find her best friend, Ranger Lockhart, a bride. It’s clear this smart, sexy man just needs to meet the right gal.
Ranger’s returned home to Cupid with marriage on his mind, but he’s not interested in the parade of women Ember pushes under his nose. His thoughts keep returning to his best friend—with her combustible combination of curves and sass. No one compares to Ember, but what’s it going to take to convince her she’s the woman for him?
This was a slow burn friends to lovers romance.
Ember and Ranger have been friends for years, and they both feel the attraction to one another, but don't want to do anything to mess up the relationship they already have, as they each feel they can talk to (and connect with) one another.
So, the only reasonable response for Ember is to try her hand at matchmaking and finding someone else for Ranger to fall in love with.
There were shades of Jane Austen to this story, and there were points where I was not sure I believed that the characters thought they were perfect for one another. Yes, the attraction was built up well, but the shift from friends to lovers, and the eventual conclusion, seemed a little too quick for me to believe it fully. It wasn't enough to ruin the story, but it did make me struggle with the romance aspect of it a little.
I do recommend this title, and I did enjoy it overall.
