On the flap: In charming Verily, New York, Kate Seymour has a smashing success with Kinnections, the matchmaking service she owns with her two best girlfriends. But Kate’s more than a savvy businesswoman: She’s gifted with a secret power, a jolting touch that signals when love’s magic is at work. It rocked her when she picked up a strange volume of love spells in the town’s used bookstore . . . and it zapped her again when she encountered Slade Montgomery, the hot-tempered— and hot-bodied—divorce lawyer who storms into Kinnections demanding proof that playing Cupid won’t destroy his vulnerable sister, Kate’s newest client. The only way to convince this cynic that she’s no fraud, and that love is no mirage, is for Kate to meet his audacious challenge: find him his dream woman. Can Kate keep their relationship strictly business when her electrifying attraction nearly knocked her off her feet? Or has the matchmaker finally met her match?
Although she owns a matchmaking company, Kate has not been as lucky in love. She has the ability to feel when a romantic link is going to last between two people. This curse is part of what makes Kinnection so successful. The other functions include her two best friends which help with the social and physical aspects of the connection.
Kate has met her greatest challenge when Slade Montgomery walks through her door. He’s the sister of Jane who has signed up for Kinnection’s services. The problem with this jaded divorce attorney is he doesn’t believe in love or a happily ever after. He confronts her and then to prove her as a fraud decides to sign up for their services too.
If you enjoyed the Marriage series, you’ll love this too. In fact, early on in the book a certain purple, fabric colored book of spells makes an appearance. Also throughout the book, you get a glimpse at some other family characters from the past.
This book follows the same type of formula as previous novels. It reels you in with wit and humor, hooks you with the emotion, and seals the deal with some sizzling sex. The epilogue from the dog’s point of view is a bit strange but overall very sweet especially when you realize Robert is based on a real dog. This is not necessarily anything extraordinary but it’s a delightful, sentimental romance that makes you want more.

I have a large appetite for books with pensive alpha males. I tend to lean towards erotica and contemporary romance. I am completely addicted to my Kindle and feel naked when it’s not with me. If you have any recommendations, feel free to email them. I’m a single-ish woman with two crazy dogs. I also love football and basketball. Living in Oklahoma City, my teams are the Thunder and Sooners.
