Wingman rule number one: don’t fall for a client.
After a career-ending accident, former NFL recruit Ian Hunter is back on campus—and he’s ready to get his new game on. As one of the masterminds behind Wingmen, Inc., a successful and secretive word-of-mouth dating service, he’s putting his extensive skills with women to work for the lovelorn. But when Blake Olson requests the services of Wingmen, Inc., Ian may have landed his most hopeless client yet.

From her frumpy athletic gear to her unfortunate choice of footwear, Blake is going to need a miracle if she wants to land her crush. At least with a professional matchmaker by her side she has a fighting chance. Ian knows that his advice and a makeover can turn Blake into another successful match. But as Blake begins the transformation from hot mess to smokin’ hot, Ian realizes he’s in danger of breaking his cardinal rule.…

My Opinion

I think I'm running out of new ways to describe how much I love RVD books. I feel every review I write for her sounds exactly the same because I just adore the worlds she creates and her characters. However, I'll give it a go. If I repeat myself, I'm sorry, but all of her books are great.

I didn't really know what to expect from this read. That was probably down to the fact I didn't read the blurb. However, I kind of liked going in blind. It meant I could be surprised by Ian's company and what he did for work. I thought it was a unique take on the matchmaking industry--having the guy as the teacher.

While the plot is predictable, the characters, like always, are second to none. I loved the playful, light-hearted nature of the book and the constant banter, flirting, or cheeky comments had me smiling the whole way through. I can always count on RVD to make a crappy day better.

With regards to the relationship, there was definitely chemistry between Ian and Blake. I liked how Ian's feelings developed as he fell for Blake. I thought it was believable. I also liked how Blake wasn't afraid to stand up to Ian. She was flirty and messed with him.

Overall, another great read by RVD. I love her work and she is one of my favourite and I can't see anyone knocking her out of the top position any time soon. If I could rate more than five stars I would.
