None of the matches caught his eye as much as the matchmaker himself.
Growing up poorer than poor didn’t leave Navashen Bhattathiri many options for life outside of school. All of his concentration was on keeping his scholarships. Sixteen years later, he’s fulfilled his dream and become a doctor. Now he’s returning home to Lexington and is ready to prove himself to the world. In doing so, he reconnects with Brent Carpenter—high school classmate, real estate agent, all-around great guy… and closet matchmaker.
Brent makes it his mission to help Navashen develop a social life and meet available, interesting men. Unfortunately Navashen’s schedule is unpredictable, and few of those available, interesting men value his dedication like Brent does. Brent’s unfailing friendship and support convince Navashen he’s the one, but can he capture Brent’s heart when the matchmaker is focused on finding Navashen another man?
I enjoyed this story, especially the characters and care taken to be inclusive. The romance was OK and I enjoyed what little was there but the friendships and bonds formed between each of the characters were what really made this story great. I loved seeing the influences culture had on Navashen’s life and I loved that he busted those wide open while still maintaining his core self. The understanding and love shown by everyone for the Navashen’s brother was fantastic and to be honest, Akshat was my favorite part of this story. I personally enjoy lighthearted stories where the romance isn’t always the focus. I know that isn’t the point of this line of books, but I enjoyed this story anyway and will listen to it again.
This was not bad. John Solo struggled with some of the accents and voices, but he easily brought forth the emotions and heart of the characters.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the audiobook of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
