The Matchmaker: A Playing Dirty Novel by Pamela DuMond
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Summary from GoodReads

sexy, standalone Rom-Com from USA Today bestselling author Pamela DuMond.
Aiden Black thought he’d left his past behind when he abandoned the church. He channeled his desire to help others by creating WGA -- Chicago’s premiere matchmaking agency. Aiden’s the expert at finding true love for his clients but he’s put his own needs on hold for a Very. Long. Time.
Violet Accardi doesn’t want to settle down and be a Mafia princess – she’s busy building her own sportswear company. Problem is her family’s a bit controlling: mom wants grand babies. Dad wants mom to be happy. Uncle Vincent’s trying to kidnap her because he promised Violet’s hand in marriage to the son of a rival mafia family.
Aiden shuts down the first kidnapping attempt at the WGA holiday part by pretending to be Violet’s fiancé. He’s smoking hot, such a gentleman, their chemistry is through the roof, and Violet wonders –-
-- what could it hurt to pretend to be in love with a gorgeous, classy, romantic guy -- for just one night?
A man who respects her mind, her ambition, and treats her like a queen? But 'one' night’s going to grow a lot longer, and life for Violet and Aiden is going to grow more complicated…

REVIEW


I received an e-ARC in exchange for an honest review. 

I haven't read any NA written by Pamela DuMond (I am a big fan of her Mortal Beloved series) and this book was quite a surprise! Aiden has a matchmaking service and Violet wants to make her own company and not become a mafia princess, neither just make grandbabies for her mom. When Aiden helps Violet, sparks fly with an epic sequence of romance, humor and lots of banter.

Light-hearted, fun and emotional this book is for those who want something fun yet very romantic!
