Book Description

31 Mar 2009
Compatible? Never. But the numbers don't lie... Sports reporter Mitch MacKinnon is stuck writing an exposé about a local dating service, and no amount of foot-dragging or complaining will get him out of it. When he gets a look at the sexy blonde owner, things start looking up. He'd love the chance to date Juliette Lowell a time or two. But he's here to dish the dirt that'll be his ticket to a big-time newspaper; a relationship is the furthest thing from his mind. Juliette's got Mitch pegged from the word go-he's an overgrown jock who wouldn't know a true emotion if it was wrapped in pigskin. Delicious dimples and killer brown eyes aside, the man is incredibly infuriating. All she needs is one chance to prove she can find a perfect match for anyone. Even him. Then her "foolproof" database spits out the results. Mitch's perfect match? Juliette. If she's right, Mitch will have to eat his words-and the story that'll take him to the top. Warning: This title contains hot, sweaty couch dancing; long, slow, hot, wet kisses that last three days, and toe-curling romance.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Perfect Match 29 July 2008
By Kelly - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Juliette Lowell had worked hard the last three years to build her dating service A Perfect Match, so when Mitch MacKinnon came in to interview her with a negative attitude, she had no patience with him. He scoffed at her when she disclosed that she used her gut, astrology, and her psychology degree to make a match. Even after meeting her most recent successful match, and newlyweds, he was still skeptical about the type of service she provided. When she read his less than flattering column in the paper, she was furious, and went to his office to let him know.

Mitch thought that article would be the last of his contact with Juliette, but when his assignment was extended to him actually trying her service, he was looking forward to seeing her again. He was certainly attracted to her, and he could tell that she felt the same way. After going to her office, and filling out all the paperwork, he came running when he heard Juliette scream. She had come up as his perfect match, and that bothered her especially since she had already been proposed to. Mitch talked her into giving their date a try. Mitch also insisted on a kiss goodnight kiss that sent both their hormones into overdrive. As they spent more time together, they realized there was more between them than just lust. That left Juliette with a dilemma. Should she trust her head and be with her boyfriend that promised her stability she had never known, or trust her heart and be with Mitch?

The erotic scenes between Mitch and Juliette were pretty good, and well described, but the other elements of the story lacked any emotional depth. Since those elements were missing, it was difficult to really become invested in the outcome. Not a recommended read for those that appreciate a strong story along with the steamy sex.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Perfect Match by Shelley Bradley 24 April 2009
By jjmachshev - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If the author hadn't been Shelley Bradley, I would have bumped my rating up a bit for "A Perfect Match". But because it was Bradley, I expected just a bit more than I got. This is a perfectly nice contemporary romance, but I expect more than perfectly nice from Shelley Bradley.

Juliette had to grow up fast after the death of her mother. Her father's military career meant constant moves and Juliette become mom for her little sister. Now Juliette and her sister are grown and she's finally settled for good, and she never intends to move again. She also runs a matchmaking service, and is seriously considering a marriage proposal from a successful, settled man. When a reporter shows up to do a story on her business, Juliette is excited and looking forward to touting her success rates as free advertising.

Mitch has itchy feet. He's always looking to live life and doesn't believe in Juliette's business or her services. He would, however, be perfectly happy to 'service' her! When his article isn't as supportive as Juliette would like, his boss suggests Mitch let Juliette set him up on a date. And wouldn't you know it, when Juliette inputs the information in her program, she and Mitch are a match! Looks like Juliette has a few decisions to make.

At just over 200 pages, "A Perfect Match" is a quick, fun read. It has a light helping of Shelley Bradley's signature heat, but is still firmly romance vice erotica.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Perfect Match 2 Dec 2011
By Bella March - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Juliette Lowell has worked hard to get her matchmaking service, A Perfect Match, off the ground and successful. So, when cynical sport reporter Mitch MacKinnon waltzes into her office for a society pages interview, Juliette inwardly groans. This man could make or break her business. He may be hot, but he's skeptical of her methods and his exasperating opinions could be bad news for A Perfect Match.

Mitch is a sports reporter. He can't believe he got hoodwinked into doing Community Happenings for a co-worker who's on a brief leave of absence. But, perhaps this is just what he needs to show one of the larger newspapers he's got just enough versatility and style to be a part of their staff.

After a rather infuriating article on her business by Mitch, Juliette decides to take things into her own hands. She challenges Mitch to sign up for her service himself, to prove her services are worthy of respect. At first he balks, but after receiving pressure from his editor, he acquiesces with a condition of his own: Juliette has to sign up for her own service as well. She agrees and both complete the thorough questionnaires, but never in a million years did she expect her database to spit out her perfect match as... Mitch? They both agree to the first date, but neither of them expects the discoveries they make.

I absolutely loved reading A Perfect Match. The differences between Mitch and Juliette were just enough to keep the sparks and tension flying. I like the Juliette's no-nonsense ways, how responsible she was in light of her childhood past. Mitch's free spirit, assertiveness and love for travel are just the characteristics to keep Juliette on her toes.

The creativity these two tapped into to organize their dates made the pages fly. Having been to most of the places in California listed in the story really set a personal tone with me. I was able to vividly visualize the scenes. Unwilling to give away too many details of the story but wanting to share a favorite scene, I'll only mention that I'll never look at roller blades quite the same way again.

Having read several stories by Shelley Bradley and by her alter ego Shayla Black, I never cease to be amazed how versatile this author is. Sometimes humorous, sometimes erotic, sometimes dark and emotional, always well written and mesmerizing, Ms. Bradley now adds light and romantic to her writing repertoire with A Perfect Match. Be sure to pick up this wonderful short novel for a perfect getaway read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Five Blue Ribbons from Romance Junkies! 9 Aug 2008
By Natalie S - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Reporter Mitch MacKinnon wants to be noticed by a nationally syndicated newspaper. A sports writer, he thrives on what he does and strives to be the best in his field. When one of his fellow coworkers is unable to do their job, Mitch is given the task of writing an exposé on a local dating agency - a dating agency in which the success stories make Mitch's eyes roll and his disbelief come through. Making an appointment for a full scale dating profile, Mitch can't wait to write about the owner for the fraud she surely is. Imagine his surprise when his perfect computer match comes through and it is Juliette Lowell, the owner of A PERFECT MATCH.

Juliette Lowell knows that Mitch MacKinnon doesn't believe in her dating service. She can't wait to set him up on a date and have him fall for his "perfect match." After the results are in - and Juliette knows without a doubt that her computer program is flawless - she is amazed and almost appalled to find out that SHE is Mitch's match. Vowing to get through one evening, Juliette sets up a date with Mitch to see where it takes them. She really doesn't expect to fall for him.

Juliette and Mitch can't help the sparks and attraction they each feel for the other. Mitch still doesn't believe in Juliette's dating service, especially when a disgruntled customer makes his presence known. Will he ever believe? Juliette is not sure he ever will.

Whether she is writing historical or contemporary novels, I know when I read Shelley Bradley I am in for a truly wondrous treat of a read. Mitch's characterization is so realistic that I almost didn't like him for the arrogant jock he is and I secretly yearned for him to fall in love with Juliette just so he could have his heart broken. But at the same time I loved him for his boyish charm and willingness to protect Juliette. Juliette is strong and steady but vulnerable at the same time. She doesn't expect love to find her - and her perfect match could not have been more of a surprise than Mitch MacKinnon.

Shelley Bradley is one of my favorite authors for a reason. Her talent is limitless and releases like A PERFECT MATCH further my admiration of this brilliant author.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Romance 28 Feb 2010
By D. Rowe - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was a nice read from Shayla Black under Shelly Bradley. More of a romance than erotica, and I felt had a nice love story going. Huge sexual tension but not that hot under the sheets. If you are looking for a more romantic read then this is the book for you.
