Read:: The Matchmakers Playbook by Rachel Van Dyken

The matchmaking services seem to be a new book genre like the whole Step Brother romance that went through last summer. They have been good books though so I am not complaining.

This one had me from the blurb, a hot guy and a tomboyish athlete; sure I wanted to give it a chance. I loved that this book was written in the male POV only. You don’t get too many books like this. I love reading what the guy is thinking.
So Ian can’t play football so he decides to play matchmaker on campus. He helps those that cannot help themselves and he is really good at it. He has a buddy that joins him in his business and they share clients so it’s not a heavy load.  

Blake wants a certain guy and decides to try this service to get the guy of her dreams. Low and behold Ian shows up for the meeting. They both have met, didn’t get along great, and now this. She tries to bat him off but she knows she has to take his help if she wants this guy.
Ian’s completely surprised when she gets all girlied up and decides he doesn’t want to share her. He and Blake eventually begin dating and I loved these two together. She doesn’t let him get away with anything.  It’s a good read.

After a career-ending accident, former NFL recruit Ian Hunter is back on campus—and he’s ready to get his new game on. As one of the masterminds behind Wingmen, Inc., a successful and secretive word-of-mouth dating service, he’s putting his extensive skills with women to work for the lovelorn. But when Blake Olson requests the services of Wingmen, Inc., Ian may have landed his most hopeless client yet.
From her frumpy athletic gear to her unfortunate choice of footwear, Blake is going to need a miracle if she wants to land her crush. At least with a professional matchmaker by her side she has a fighting chance. Ian knows that his advice and a makeover can turn Blake into another successful match. But as Blake begins the transformation from hot mess to smokin’ hot, Ian realizes he’s in danger of breaking his cardinal rule…
