I need a date to my brother’s wedding in six weeks, and Charlie Walgrove owns a tux. Billionaires are like that.
He’s also my sister’s boss, and I agree to let her set me up with the awkward genius, who apparently has even less luck in the dating game than a struggling artist, aka me.
We’re total opposites, but the date goes okay. We agree to be friends, the kind who won’t become lovers.
Famous last words.
On a series of “friend dates” involving bar snacks, acrylic paint and hedgehogs, I discover that Charlie is nothing like what I expected. Under his hoodie and glasses, he’s handsome and down-to-earth, stuck in a job he hates and afraid to disappoint people by walking away. His heart is as gorgeous as his hidden face.
I’ve always felt like the flaky sister in my family, but Charlie sees me as the artist I want to be. As our friendship deepens, so do my feelings for him. Maybe I’m even falling in love.
But gambling with my heart feels dangerous when all my relationships end in failure–especially if he’s only looking for a friend.
Is it only princesses that get a Happy Ever After? Or is there hope for a hot mess like me?
No Match for Her is a STANDALONE friends-to-lovers, opposites-attract romance. It is part of the Berkeley Hills series.
RELEASE DATE: February 15, 2022
NEW to me author. I am glad I gave this a shot, but I will not lie the beginning of this book it was super awkward in that beginning. Now having read it I get it and makes sense but at the beginning I was not impressed and rather bored and couldn’t get with the story. But stick through it, it will surprise you in all the best ways. Warning: this is a VERY SLOW BURN with the tension build up!
The hero is very smart, unique, driven, handsome and very tech-y. The heroine is a artist that works designing interior. These two get set up on a blind date by the heroine’s sister. Needles to say that was a huge fail. Little secret the hero actually first saw the heroine 3 years prior but it just wasn’t the time for them. When they meet again by accident, they try and make it work. The heroine really needs a date for her brother’s wedding and the hero well he is a amazing guy who of course said yes. In comes the hero’s gardener who happens to be one of the only close friends he has, and gives him a little nudge. That happens to work out great so Charlie forms a plana and the heroine Cherry is all game. What comes after that is where I fell in love with both of them. They were so much opposite but so much alike in the end. Their love is based on a friendship foundation and that’s what made it all even more worth in the end. In the end I really enjoyed the read and would read more in the series as well.
