What a breath of fresh air!!! J.T. Geissinger’s writing is always fantastic whether she’s ripping your heart out with angst, getting your blood pumping with suspense, or – in this case – making you smile with a banter-filled, light, and playful rom com. While Rules of Engagement might come off as slightly over the top at the start of the book, the further in you get, the deeper and more impactful the story. I loved this opposites attract romance, and couldn’t believe how quickly I devoured it.
The story follows Mason, a pro football player with a bad reputation. He’s a giant of a man with a temper, a penchant for blondes, and the tendency to lose himself in liquor. When his team threatens to drop him if he doesn’t clean up his act, he seeks out a matchmaker to find a wife who will provide him with a more stable appearance – at least publicly. What he doesn’t expect is the impact the matchmaker herself, Maddie, will have on his life. She’s surprisingly feisty for a woman who gives off the impression of being uptight, and it’s not long before Mason realizes he’s met his match in her.
Tonally, this is a huge shift from what Geissinger has been writing recently, and while her romantic suspense is great, I loved this just as much. The book flies by, with palpable chemistry between Mason and Maddie, a lightness and easiness that pairs well with the shots of emotion, and a story that gets richer and deeper as it goes on. It’s everything you could want in a rom com, and I would have zero problems with Geissinger launching a new series with this football team as the centerpiece. If you’re looking for a rom com with heart, I recommend it without hesitation. I received an ARC via Social Butterfly PR (then purchased it for my collection) and am voluntarily leaving a review of this rom com goodness.
Love is a battlefield for a quirky matchmaker and the cocky football star who hires her to find him a wife.
Rules of Engagement, an all-new hilarious romantic comedy from J.T. Geissinger, is available now!
As the owner of Perfect Pairings matchmaking service, Maddie McRae earns her living helping others fall in love. Dubbed the Wedding Whisperer due to her success getting couples down the aisle, the sweet Southern belle knows that the foundation of wedded bliss is built on similarities: opposites might attract, but they don’t stay together.
Which is why she’s holding out for her own Prince Charming, a perfect gentleman who will arrive one day and sweep her off her feet with his devotion, kindness, and charm.
Enter Mason Spark.
Rude, arrogant, and notoriously allergic to monogamy, the hottest quarterback in the NFL is Maddie’s polar opposite. He’s also her new client. Her gorgeous, infuriating new client who’s paying her an outrageous sum of money to find him a wife. With his multi-million dollar contract on the line due to his behavior on and off the field, bad boy Mason is willing to pretend to settle down.
But when he starts to fall for the adorkable matchmaker who can’t stand him, the playboy finds himself in the game of his life to keep something he never thought he’d lose—his heart.
