Well Matched

Berkley. (Well Met, Bk. 3). Oct. 2021. 336p. ISBN 9780593200445. pap. $16. CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE
April Parker moved to Willow Creek to raise her daughter after a painful divorce, but she didn’t like living in such a small town and promised herself she’d move as soon as Caitlin started college. Since she didn’t plan to stay long, April never got involved in town life. Local boy Mitch Malone is the exact opposite. Born and raised in Willow Creek, he’s the gym teacher, the high school football coach, and a fixture at Jackson’s bar. He’s also deeply insecure about how his family views his personal life. When Mitch decides that he needs to bring a girlfriend to an upcoming Malone family get-together, he and April strike a deal: Mitch will help April fix up her house, and April will be Mitch’s fake girlfriend in front of his family. Over the next few weeks, the closeness that develops between them changes everything. This sexy, witty, fast-paced romantic comedy has surprising emotional depth. It can be read as a standalone or as part of DeLuca’s “Well Met” series.
VERDICT Readers won’t want to put this novel down once they start and will clamor for more as soon as they finish. Recommended for public libraries.
