Publisher/Year: Orange Door Press/2014
Genre: Romance, Contemporary

The Juicy Stuff:
(Summary contains spoilers if you have not yet read book #1 The Husband Maker)
It’s been six months since Charlotte and Kyle broke up, and the Husband Maker strikes again. Kyle is officially engaged, while Charlotte is still nursing a broken heart. In an effort to get Charlotte out of her rut, she and her best friend decide it’s time for some good old-fashioned matchmaking. While Aleena arranges for Charlotte to meet up with a handsome Scottish tourist, Charlotte gets her two best friends together. But when sparks start to fly between Aleena and Angus, Charlotte is left feeling more alone that ever--at least until the charming Scotsman becomes more than just a safe, rebound guy and teaches her that maybe, just maybe, she can dare to open her heart again.
How It Made Me Feel:
Man! What a reputation to have! To have your ex-boyfriends become engaged only months after your own relationship is dissolved. Then to become a match maker for your two closest friends? Ugh. How much can one broken heart take? No worries. There's a wonderful Scottish tourist to help things along.
Charlotte was a character that was extremely easy to relate to and one that was enjoyable to read. Every once in a while, you get a character that doesn't seem human. That wasn't the case with Charlotte. I loved watching her growth throughout the story and I also enjoyed seeing how other characters helped (or didn't help) her. She had roadblocks she had to navigate around and a heart to mend.
I can't help but admit I fell for the handsome Scottish tourist. :3 What?! He's Scottish and a gentleman. Flynn was a well rounded character who was a great introduction. Overall, it was a great read!
Why It Got That Rating:
I loved the character development and the settings in the story. I also enjoyed the dialogue between characters and the way it led into a third book, however, the cliffhanger really got to me!
