Trina Rockwell here. You know, your favorite TV host from Midwestern Matchmaker? While I’ve been setting up Midwestern singles for seven years, I’ve not had any luck finding myself a guy.

My last great encounter was a year ago when I bid on a date with billionaire Heath Fox at a charity auction. But then, after a great date and an even better good night kiss, Heath told me he wasn’t looking for a relationship. Super.

Now that Midwestern Matchmaker has been cancelled, my producer has got it into his head to do a new show where I’m the one who finds love. He wants to set me up with a bunch of B-List celebrities, the likes of which have me considering joining a convent.

There’s only one thing I can think of doing and that’s finding a boyfriend for real. The last thing I expected was for Heath to come back into my life and cause trouble.

I have wanted to read something by this author for a long time and I was excited when I was able to fit this one into my review schedule. And I am pleased to say this one did not disappoint at all! I was trying to fit it in after a rough week for my family, and it was one I couldn’t put down, which was perfect. The characters were second chance, but also a tiny bit of enemies to lovers at times, based on how their first date had ended.

Poor Trina was dealing with some crazy issues with her job, but she was also going to try some pretty extreme lengths in figuring out a way out of the upcoming possible disaster. And then there is Heath who has a past marriage/loss of his wife and child that is understandable in making him so reluctant and unwilling to ever let himself get that hurt again. However both definitely were still interested in the other, even if they didn’t want to admit it or admit that it was more than just a casual thing. And while it seems as if Trina is a bit mean to him at first, when he starts scaring these possible dates away, I kind of felt like he deserved it at times.

The story also had a bunch of great characters, from earlier books in the series which I have yet to read, but now need to! And the town of Elk Lake has a lot of great settings and characters too. I’m not always a fan of billionaire stories, but the way this was done with Heath was perfect and he didn’t seem like your usual billionaire other than the occasional mention of how his money affected his life and world. It was a sweet romance as well, pretty much just kissing, nothing more. But it worked for this story, and it wasn’t anything that seemed to be avoided, it just wasn’t needed for the plot.

Again, I really enjoyed this and will be doing my best to fit more by this author into my reading schedule in the future!

USA Today Bestselling author Whitney Dineen is a rock star in her own head. While delusional about her singing abilities, there’s been a plethora of validation that she’s a fairly decent author (AMAZING!!!). After winning many writing awards and selling nearly a kabillion books (math may not be her forte, either), she’s decided to let the voices in her head say whatever they want (sorry, Mom). She also won a fourth-place ribbon in a fifth-grade swim meet in backstroke. So, there’s that.

Whitney loves to hang with her kids (a.k.a. dazzle them with her amazing 80’s dance moves, serenading them to Bohemian Rhapsody, and binge watch Ted Lasso ), bake stuff, eat stuff, and write books for people who “get” her. She thinks french fries are the perfect food and Mrs. Roper is her spirit animal.
