Matched I would compare this book to an interesting but sexy tropical version of big brother I don t watch tv, so there could be better comparisons There is drama, steam and some twists I think it was a good book and I would recommend it. Date, Mate, Fate Celebrity EditionHarlow and her high school sweetheart just reunited, only for him to drag her on a reality dating show where you find your soul mate after taking a test Harlow isn t keen on the idea, but will do anything for Oakley because she really does love him.I ended up really loving this story At the beginning I wasn t sure how I was going to feel You re not sure how the many relationships in the story will pan out It s told from the POV of one contestant, Harlow, but we get other people s POV s sprinkled in confessional style Which is pretty cool honestly It is an emotional rollercoaster to say the least I was laughing, crying, angry, swooning All in all I think the outcomes were pretty perfect, even though some of them were hard to accept at first It s like you as the reader can really feel Harlow s struggle during this reality show At least I could I think it was extremely well written, and even though there was a bunch going on it had good flow and didn t feel like it was dragging.There isn t any cheating in this book, but there is sex relations with other people If you enjoy shows like Are You The One on MTV, you will be fine reading this book. Date, Mate, Fate The Reality Show Like No Other Celebrity Edition Eight Men And Eight Women Thrown Together In Paradise, Their Every Move Filmed Thorough Compatibility Testing Says Everyone S Soul Mate Is Here, In The House With Them But Would You Know The One If You Saw Them One Thing A Computer Can T Do Is Manufacture Love But In This House, Anything S Possible Rated NC For Foul Language, Heavy Drinking, And Graphic Sex Full Length Stand Alone Novel With No Cliffhanger I needed a different kind of romance so I tried my luck with this book, thinking it would be something light and fun but I found neither the fun nor the romance I needed in it.Think of the TV Reality Show Are you the One Now, imagine that you are not watching it but reading about it This is exactly what it is aboutThere are 18 people and every week a couple leaves and you read who is doing what and with whom The couples can be predicted even at %20 of the book, then there is no anticipation, of course Everything is too predictable Way too predictableStill, I read it to see how they will bond etc., but I was disappointed that the side character s hero confessed his love better than the main hero The main hero didn t confess first, anyway She started kissing him She started confessing her feelings, asking him if he was feeling the same There, the book lost me completely Because I am a hopeless romantic, I guess, I need to see the hero chasing the heroine, I prefer it when the man woos and confesses first But the heroine comes into the show with her boyfriend fianc , so there is this period where they understand they are not each other s soul mates And then, the attraction between our main characters grow into a relationship Blah, blaThe book focuses on 4 couples mostly and it is told by the heroine Harlow s point of view only.So, to cut it short, this wasn t to my liking, I didn t have fun and I didn t feel anything Oh, no, I must say I got bored that is a felling, right So, it is something between 2 2,5 stars for me but not even 3 3.75 4 StarsThis book is definitely like no other I ve read, I think it is best summed up as Big Brother with a dating twist Over all it was an interesting read, but it was stacked high in the drama department The 3.75 was for a couple of my personal no no s, both of which I was able to get past and enjoy the story, but I did feel I needed to lower my rating My main wish was just to spend some time with the main couple, out of the reality show setting, I would have enjoyed of them and the last chapter being a lot longer. 4.5 5 matched stars So I really freaking enjoyed this book I was getting a little tired of reading about the same old man whore who meets the good virgin girl and falls in love I needed a change and this was brilliant and totally unexpected So it s told from the point of view of Harlow who goes into a celebrity show with her high school sweetheart Oakley The house soon divides in groups the good people and the bitches and assholes Some things in this book are predictable but there are some interesting twists Think reality tv in a book full of drama and people banging each other haha So the 8 women and 8 men go into the house and the 8 I have put in the photo above are my favourites I am obsessed with Cruz he is literally the perfect guy and would totally be my match I recommend this for anyone wanting to read something different from the normal predictable romance I went to sample this to see if I wanted to buy it and it sucked me right in It was like watching a reality television show I had to keep reading to see who matched up with their soul mate and who the last couple standing would be 8 famous people chosen to be on the show They had to bring a plus one Oakley Abrams, 23 Lineman for the North Bay Ravens Harlow McWright, 22 Oakley s first love and plus one Court Callahan, 25 Professional bull rider Wyatt Callahan, 23 Court s manager, brother, and plus one Callie Cole , 22

24 Rachel s roommate, best friend, and plus one Nadia Minkin, 23 Supermodel Dalton Sharp, 25 Fitness trainer and Nadia s plus one8 women and 8 men competing to earn money for a charity of their choice Also when they find their soulmate they win a trip together for a week to explore their new relationship They enter the house with assigned bunk beds and 4 people to a room Some wasted no time hooking up Lmao This was a sweet and funny read Trying to figure out who was meant for who I wish I could say I put them all together correctly but I didn t It was a story filled with strangers becoming lovers and some making life long best friends and enemies lol If you love watching reality tv then you will love this one It had many laugh out loud moments The story is told through Oakley s first love and plus one Harlow I would of loved to have been in some of the others mind Really sorry to my girls K,E and T for reading this with out you I should of waited to sample Lmao S E Hall and Angela Graham freaking killed this book I won t give anything away, but at the end you will or at least to me see what Matched really means I will be totally honest and let you in on a secret I had to keep notes for the first part of the book so I would know who was who, their ages, and occupations I also took notes on who were friends and who were the evil people Sixteen couples are invited for a celebrity big brother type reality show The end result should be two people who are compatible via computers and who have survived the challenges The challenges were comical The relationships were amazing The tension was unbelievable The story is told from Harlow s point of view At the beginning of each chapter we get a confessional from one of the other characters Just when you think you have something figured out there is something that makes you go hmmm I will say that my first thought when introduced to the porn star, Jasmine was oh no But, I really liked her There were friendships made and relationships made that will last I totally recommend this book I ve still got sort of a book hangover from constantly reading and trying to get to the end My job interrupted my cozy read No cliffhanger. 3 Match me up StarsHave you seen the show Are you the One on MTV Yeah, it s a guilty pleasure of mine and Matched is exactly like it It s a cute book with a cute concept I really do like all the characters, at times it can be confusing but each of them has such different personalities it s easy to track.Matched is about a game show 8 couples arrive to be on a show for charity Each of them are in various profession, a porn star, movie star, football player, etc Harlow is on the show with her boyfriend Oakley They believe they are the perfect match BUT there s tons of stuff that goes on.First off, the book isn t romance It s angst, drama and comedy I really liked all the side stories and I kind of wished it was told in different POV s so I could get a better grasp of them Instead the whole book is from Harlow s POV.I wasn t really fond of Harlow I thought she was kind of a push over and really confusing She didn t know what she wanted I was also really cautious of Oakley He didn t really give Harlow attention, but then he would be sweet I wasn t sure if he was a good or bad guy Then there is a crazy tension between Harlow and Cruz I liked Cruz and I found him endearing and I love that he loves his sister, Emma so much But it was hard for me to get into the story because Harlow was with Oakley.To be honest, I loved the side relationships There s Adam, the producer that s on and off set at times lending advice and keeping people in check, he was my favorite Then there was Court the man whore that wants to be reformed I loved Jasmine because she s an ex porn star that wants to be treated than a piece of meat.The whole book was a lot to take in and it was REALLY meaty I think I could have done away with a lot of it.Overall, the book was good, entertaining and funny I wished there was POV s and romance I liked the concept and idea of it, just wished I had some crazy love. I hate reality shows Lol, but for some reason, I love romances that take fictionally place in them This is my second book that has the reality show theme and it freaking rocked I loved the behind the scenes moments of the show and the characters I ll admit that I was seriously hoping that Harlow wasn t going to end up with Oakley I really didn t care for him And he just got progressively worse over the course of the book From the first moment he was introduced, I fell for the hero of this book But since the book is exclusively from Harlow s POV, you don t know who the real hero is right away I give mad props to the authors for coming up with all the different challenges that the characters went through I don t watch reality shows like Survivor or the Bachelor but this book almost makes me want to Honestly, I didn t want this to end I loved the journey that Harlow, Miranda, Callie, Emma and Cruz went on I loved getting to know them and the drama and watching them fall for different people I have to say that I was both disappointed and happy that the soul mate matchups did and didn t work I was really surprised at who Harlow and Emma were matched with and disappointed that other people that were perfectly matched, didn t actually get together This will definitely be a reread and I can t wait to read from these two authors
