The Inside Habit



Review: Match Point by Erynn Mangum

match-point-250Book3 in the Lauren Holbrook series, an inspirational novel. Here is the blurb:

Matchmaker Lauren Holbrook is happy after putting together four successful couples. That is, until the tables are turned and she’s on the receiving end of the matchmaking!

Lauren and her boyfriend, Ryan, devise a plan to make it look as if they’ve broken up so people will get off their backs about marriage. No problem, right? That’s of course until Lauren realizes she’s in love.

The first and last (this one) books in the series were definitely my favorite. Lauren finally had the cards turned on her. Some readers have said that it’s not as funny as the previous two books and this is true. However, it’s also more romantic (thank goodness! Was I the only one asking why the heck Laur-Ry weren’t locking lips??) Obviously I’m not going to get into my heartbreak over Lauren not marrying her best friend. (Got over that at the end of the last book). Ryan won me over in the end with the “weird” looks he gave Lauren.

With that said, the supporting characters didn’t exactly make my heart sing. I get that it was Lauren’s story finally being told but the others just seemed to lose their zing in this book (where did you go Brandon?).

Rating: 3/5 (Amazon; Barnes & Nobles; Chapters)
