Anabelle Granger endeavors to promote her grandmother's matchmaking business by landing sports agent Heath Champion as a client, an effort that is challenged by Heath's arrogant nature and Annabelle's own unexpected feelings.

You met quarterback Kevin Tucker in This Heart of Mine. Now get ready to meet his shark of an agent, Heath Champion, and Annabelle Granger, the girl least likely to succeed.

Annabelle's endured dead-end jobs, a broken engagement . . . even her hair's a mess! But that's going to change now that she's taken over her late grandmother's matchmaking business. All Annabelle has to do is land the Windy City's hottest bachelor as her client, and she'll be the most sought-after matchmaker in town.

Why does the wealthy, driven, and gorgeous sports agent Heath Champion need a matchmaker, especially a red-haired screw-up like Annabelle Granger? True, she's entertaining, and she does have a certain quirky appeal. But Heath is searching for the ultimate symbol of success -- the perfect wife. And to make an extraordinary match, he needs an extraordinary matchmaker, right?

Soon everyone in Chicago has a stake in the outcome, and a very big question: When the determined matchmaker promised she'd do anything to keep her star client happy . . . did she mean anything? If Annabelle isn't careful, she just might find herself going heart-to-heart with the toughest negotiator in town.

Excellent. A good storyline & great likeable/lovable characters with fun dialogue. Even the secondary characters were interesting & the scenes with the three-year-old were laugh-out-loud funny. It did drag a bit at the end but that's what happens when you draw a romance out to 400 pages.

A fun playful story that has two interesting and engaging central characters

I loved this book. Pip is so funny and vital to the story. I read Dean's story out of order and decided to go back and read more. The back and forth sparring between these two is hilarious. I am now reading Phoebe's story.

I admit, all of Susan Elizabeth Phillips' books tend to follow the same basic formula: a strong female lead, a handsome once-playboy but with hidden intelligence and moral depth, and some very sexy flirtations and love scenes. The thing is - the formula works. If you're someone who likes a romance that is sexy and at the same time, has real cleverness, humor, and a strong believable female lead - you can always count on Phillips. Annabelle is a great, quirky, stubborn woman who is trying to prove herself as self-sufficient and successful in her own right. Heath is smart, sexy, and assertive/aggressive about his approach to life and work because of how far he's had to come to get there. The way they interact and how they fall in love is a funny, clever, and touching ride.

Cute, lighthearted story....I really liked the chemistry between Annabelle & Heath, and the book had a nice, neat conclusion. "Pwince" is adorable...

Wow! Me reading RomCom. OK. I'm a guy and usually read Grisham and Sandford and mysteries - all law and detectives and police work. Nevertheless, this author (Susan - who I now follow on Twitter because her tweets are like micro-books :-), she really turned this old guys head around and turned my heart on. What a wonderful writer. I've read lots of her books (and some them twice) - she rarely disappoints me. I will confess I am a major Jane Austen fan too, so she's in good company. C

Cute book. Love this author. This one tackles a bit of the football scene which was interesting. Also, just the fact that someone could actually make a living out of being a true match maker was intriquing.
