Book Review ~ Almost Matched (Almost Bad Boys #1) by A.O. Peart

Almost Matched - Angela Orlowski-Peart

Synopsis ~

Would you take another shot at love? Or just settle on a friend with benefits?




Twenty-five-year-old Natalie Davenport lugs substantial baggage. One boyfriend after the next has been a total disaster, leaving Natalie distrustful toward the male population in general. So when Colin Hampton crosses her path, she’s cautious. Her heart (and some other body parts!) nudges her to go for it, while her head wants her to run for the hills.


Colin is one of those gorgeous guys who attract women, no matter the age or marital status. With a successful career at a popular Seattle radio station, hard body, and charming personality, he is the complete package. But something dark lurks in the corners of his soul; some murky experience that has changed him—maybe for the better, but maybe for the worse.


Will he steal her heart and stomp over it like other guys did?


Will she let him into her heavily fortified world despite herself?


Or will they settle somewhere in the middle—establishing the emotional boundaries to protect them from falling in love?



This contemporary romantic comedy blends humor, sensuality, and angst, with zany characters and witty dialogue.


***Warning: contains sexual situations (some quite vivid!), profanity, and a high dose of sarcasm. Oh, and there is a lot of appletini and beer drinking.

May not be appropriate for readers under 18 years old. Not intended for prudes and killjoys with no sense of humor***



The Almost Bad Boys series are the stories of four feisty twenty-something women who refuse to let their past drag them down.


My Thoughts~

This book has been on my Kindle since May of this year and now after reading it, I am really mad at myself for waiting so long to read this amazing book. Almost Matched was a totally fun, romantic, sexy and emotional story! I loved all of the characters, especially Colin {{sigh}}. I really don't do 'Book Boyfriends', but if I did, Colin would be the one! Pure 100% Male Perfection! Such a sexy, kind man, but he has a really sad past history with another girl which is threatening to come between him and Natalie. Just when he was opening up to Natalie about what the heck was going on with him, book one ended. But despite the abrupt ending, I really did love the fun and witty banter between Natalie and her best friends. Ms. Peart is a really great writer who knows how to get the reader connected with the characters, wanting to know more about them and wishing they were your BFF's! The chemistry between Natalie and Colin is off the charts and I can't wait to see if this relationship works out because these two are perfect for each other.

I highly recommend Almost Matched, but you might as well one-click Almost Broken Up and Almost Too Far at the same time because you will want to know how this story ends immediately!
