4.0 out of 5 stars I really liked most of it, but I thought the gay best friend character was not written well. 7 Feb. 2015
By Amazonian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I really liked most of it, but I thought the gay best friend character was not written well. I think he was stereotypical "gay" at best. I think the author really liked the idea of a gay best friend, but hasn't really had any gay best friends and didn't know how to write it. That part was disappointing, as I'd love to read a book with a well written gay best friend. At one point gay best friend warns male lead if he ever hurts his friend, he'll hurt him. He drops his voice low to issue this threat, and it makes the male lead claim something like, "That's when I realized it was his normal speaking voice, and the fabulous gay man was just a character he played." Which, no. This happens literally right after meeting for the first time. You don't know anything about the other person, but you can tell their entire existence is just an act, and that you, who have known them two seconds, knows their true character because they lowered your voice while issuing a threat? I'm a woman and I'll lower my voice to issue a threat. That doesn't mean my normal speaking voice is "a character I play." Also, either misinformed joke, or homophobic when the main character says something like if all penises of the world would be covered in chocolate and like the male lead's, then there would be no more lesbians in the world. Note to author: chocolate covered penises will not stop lesbians from loving other women. That's not how any of this works. To be clear, I am not saying the author herself is homophobic, but there were several spots of maybe homophobia/maybe misunderstanding homosexuality that really bothered me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun, sexy and hot! 26 Jan. 2013
By Beth Muscat - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase

That's all I can say...what a great story and great characters! Right from the very beginning of the story, you'll fall in love with these two.

Victoria has a interior design show on TV. Her regular co-host is off for a couple of weeks, and filling in for him is Aussie born Russ. She is mighty but petite, standing in at 5'2"...but she has a strong flair for design and it shows in her designs. Russ is muscular, standing in at 6'2"...and he's saucy and flirty and wants one thing--Victoria.

As much as Victoria might not want to admit it, sparks fly between these two right from the very beginning. From the quick banter back and forth, to the hot gazes that the two exchange, you know you're in for one hell of a great read...oh, and did I mention, HOT!

One thing about Russ, though...he holds a secret that might make straight-laced Victoria run in the other direction--he's a male dancer, dancing for money at a nearby club. He swears that he saw one of Victoria's clients at the club the other night. Could this second job cause problems for Victoria? What will become of their relationship? Do they have a relationship? You'll have to read this one to find out...and I definitely recommend it!!

The humour in this book is delightful and fresh. I think I laughed on every single page of this book. From the way they interact with each other, to the way they look at each other (and sometimes deny themselves that pleasure), you can see/feel the sexual tension on almost every page as well. It was hot, sexy and a total pleasure to read. I know I will enjoy reading more from this author.

5 stars!

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved this! 25 May 2012
By Storm - Published on Amazon.com

Love by Design is a fun book. Written in a sassy, light, and humorous manner, Liz Matis creates a fun contemporary romantic romp that is sure to please fans of the genre.

I enjoy a story involving TV filming, whether it be for a sitcom, movie, or reality show. Love By Design features characters that are on a reality type show.

Victoria, the heroine, wasn't easy to like at first. She seemed a bit stuffy, oversensitive, and cold. That opinion changed quickly as she met Russ, the hunky Aussie sidekick that she was forced to work with temporaily. The sparks fly between the two, despite Victoria's attempts to not feel anything towards the man!

Russ is hilarious. I love him! He's fun, flirty, and knows how to enjoy life. He's PERFECT for Victoria. I love the banter between them while they're on the set, and off.

The story flowed great. There's plenty of fun and laughter, and it's a light read. The characters are enjoyable and real, the setting and pacing were perfect.

Ms. Matis has a voice I enjoyed. This is an author to watch. I'm excited to see what more she comes out with. If you're a fan of light contemporary romances, Love By Design awaits!
5.0 out of 5 stars Which designer will win????? 15 Sept. 2016

ARC copy for honest review with no compensation.

Victoria, co host for her interior design show meets Russ, an Aussie construction/designer who had some problems with his own show comes to America to be a temporary co host with Victoria's show. The sparks fly immediately between them both on and off the TV screen.

Well written, sexy, funny, light hearted and oh.....the sparks do fly! ! !

3.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 stars 16 Feb. 2014
By Nanee - Published on Amazon.com

These are some interesting characters, I thought it cute the way they rub each other the wrong way but how they want more, love the Aussie words the girls learn, too funny. The secondary characters are fun and keep the story interesting. When they kiss its very hot love the description the author uses (lol) they both can't help but think about the kiss and want more. When Cupcake (hehe) learns about what Russ does on the side it's quit Humorous. Love their antics on the show and how they can't seem to stop bickering. Ups and downs and a crazy roller coaster ride, very entertaining story. 3.5
