"Sweet high school romance"
This short story was a nice, easy story to listen to. I liked how the author put in the family problems and how the main character was dealing with it. So true in today's world. The narrator, Tiffany Williams made this story so much fun and so easy to listen to, giving each character their own voice. I'm looking forward to listening to the rest of the series.
I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the publisher in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.
"Matched... Differently from what I expected??"
When I first read the overview , i thought it might be a sweet valley high, kinda book but immediately the narrator ( Tiffany) caught my attention and kept it!
It was mature and I greatly appreciate the content.
Lindzee , I really enjoy your writing and this book is super cute and fun. I look forward to listening to the others. You've got me hooked !
"Bittersweet, Heartwarming Intro to a Series"
It was discovering how a girls sad family troubles worked in her life to cause her to fear relationships and see her growing relationship and feelings for a nice guy- even if she works hard to shove him in the friend category.
Luke- he starts out as a typical, flirty boy who is interested in a girl and tries too hard to get her attention. But then his generous and selfless spirit surfaces when he sets his own wants aside to be a friend when a friend is what is needed.
Probably the meet up. I chuckled over the fumbling of the boys and the icy behavior of the girl.
I did chuckle a few times over the youthful antics and was sad over the way the dad really blew it and destroyed his family particularly with his daughter. But I also wanted to take the heroine in hand for letting her parents' troubles mess up a good thing for her.
It's best to know going in that this is a prequel introduction that begins a story, but doesn't finish it until book one. It is complete enough to enjoy and doesn't have a cliffhanger or anything like that, but there is no resolve.
This was such a cute teen romance :-)
I loved the different characters and how the narrator portrayed them. This was a great easy listen light hearted and sweet.
Thoroughly enjoyed the book as well as how it was read. I hope to hear more :-) :-)
"Sweet and flirty"
This short book was good listening! It involves a 16 yr old disillusioned girl, who has no interest in boys because of her parents divorce. She meets a boy and they decide to become 'just friends'. But sometimes, that's really a hard deal to keep! Wish it were a little longer, but liked it very much!
"Great Fun & Flirty Read!"
Meet Your Match by Lindzee Armstrong is the Prequel to the 1st book in the No Match for Love series. The story transpires when Brooke is 16 years gold and the new girl in high school. Almost immediately upon arriving on the first day of school, Brooke attracts the attention of the sweet talking and flirtatious Luke. Unfortunately for Luke, Brooke has sworn off men because her father recently broke up her family by having an affair with a woman half his age. Luke accepts being "just friends" with Brooke (suspending reality for a minute because I know of no teenaged boy who would agree to such an arrangement after being turned down by a girl), and they form a unique friendship. Along the way Brooke fashions several crazy rules to keep them safely in the friend zone. In sum, this short story is well written with extremely likable characters and is a great explanation of why Brooke put Luke into the dreaded friend zone.
I listened to this prequel via audiobook, which was narrated by Tiffany Williams. She did a wonderful job, giving each character their own distinct voice. Tiffany's style is very natural making the text conversational and totally believable. I can't wait to listen to the other books in the series!
"Loved this prequel"
I liked the other books in this series and went back and got this one, the beginning of their story (Brooke/Luke). It was great to get a little bit of background on their relationship. Really enjoying this story. It was nice to find out where the rules came from and how they were created. It helped to understand a bit more about Brooke, although you don't need this to enjoy the other books. Lindzee does a great job of telling their story.
"a sweet romance blooming..."
I loved this book! It is sweet and romantic and very clean, which makes it a great YA (young adult) book too. This book setting is in high school where Brooke is a new girl in school. Automatically the boys hit on her. Then we meet Luke who is an all around nice guy. I really liked Luke. The characters, some good, some not so good really rocked their roles. I liked all characters except Chris. The rest you have to read to learn about...
The author, Lindzee Armstrong did a really good job writing this. I can appreciate the authors approach to these situations without adding sex in. It is a realistic short story. The narrator, Tiffany Williams did a great delivery of this short story. Even the accents were good. This book is totally enjoyable and took me back to my youth,. Good job all.
"short and sweet"
good story, great for the chick flick lover but I felt it was too short and incomplete. I feel like I just listened to the first chapter of a short story. I have listened to short stories from anthologies that were longer and more complete. some episodes in serial books have more to them. it is one thing to leave the reader wanting more but this. ... was just not satisfying
"Young Adult Romance NOT Contemporary -But Nice"
Brooke has been displaced because her parents have separated. She and her mother have moved into a smaller dwelling in a different school district. She is insecure about finding new friends and dealing with all the new girl issues.
She meet Zoe on her first day and overhears two boys talking about how hot Brooke is.
After finding out about her father's indiscretions, she is in no mood for a boyfriend and these two may be hot, but they sound like jerks.
Luke really, really likes Brooke but she has delegated him to the friend zone. This is a prequel to make your match, a regular blank book.
*I agreed to listen to this book in exchange for my review. While this seems a bit less mature than what I usually like. I will give the second, full-length, book a chance. I hope that it takes place years later from the current one and that the plot and writing matures as well.
This is a fun book that touched on a few serious issues but was overall, happy teenage (with a little adjusting could be any age) plot. I enjoyed it and will look forward to the sequel.
The performance was very good, a strong and decisive narration that I felt, delivered the cadence that the author was shooting for.
Warning: a minor description of sexual assault.
4 stars overall, 4 narration & 4 story
