Almost Matched by A.O. Peart

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?

My review:

Natalie Davenport is late for a meeting after a night of a few drinks with her girlfriends.  After rushing to get to the office, Natalie is all sweaty and is going to change clothes in her office instead she finds Ali’s clothes in the closet. Trying to sneak into Ali’s office, she runs into Colin in just her bra and panties…great way to start a story right?? J
Right from the beginning you knew this was going to be a great story.  I absolutely loved the chemistry between Natalie and her friends (Caroline Ali and Jena) and almost died when they started sword fighting with a dildo!  I enjoyed reading about the bound they shared and how they are there for each other no matter what; just the way true friends should be.
Natalie and Colin are a great couple, both going in with a past and not sure where things will go with each other.  There are some interesting scenes between the two of them but I will have to say that at times, the story did drag a bit (I don’t think it took away from the story at all however).
With this being a novella there is just so much more to learn about Colin and to see where the relationship between the two of them will go.
