Love is a battlefield for a quirky matchmaker and the cocky football star who hires her to find him a wife.
As the owner of Perfect Pairings matchmaking service, Maddie McRae earns her living helping others fall in love. Dubbed the Wedding Whisperer due to her success getting couples down the aisle, the sweet Southern belle knows that the foundation of wedded bliss is built on similarities: opposites might attract, but they don’t stay together.
Which is why she’s holding out for her own Prince Charming, a perfect gentleman who will arrive one day and sweep her off her feet with his devotion, kindness, and charm.
Enter Mason Spark.
Rude, arrogant, and notoriously allergic to monogamy, the hottest quarterback in the NFL is Maddie’s polar opposite. He’s also her new client. Her gorgeous, infuriating new client who’s paying her an outrageous sum of money to find him a wife. With his multi-million dollar contract on the line due to his behavior on and off the field, bad boy Mason is willing to pretend to settle down.
But when he starts to fall for the adorkable matchmaker who can’t stand him, the playboy finds himself in the game of his life to keep something he never thought he’d lose—his heart.
BlueSeal’s Review of Rules of Engagement by J. T. Geissinger
Have you ever been fixed up with a person whom your friends thought would be perfect for you due to similar interests and beliefs? Maybe you have done the online dating thing and were matched with the perfect person based on a questionnaire. I think that’s is what the term “perfect on paper” means. So what happens, when you meet that person and there is no chemistry? What if you meet someone that is your complete opposite yet the chemistry is undeniable and everyone around you can feel the sizzle? That is the interesting conundrum that Maddie McRae and Mason Spark (I am NOT kidding) find themselves struggling with in J. T. Geissinger’s newest book, Rules of Engagement. Grab a sweet tea (because that is what Maddie would serve you) and let’s chat about Rules of Engagement.
Quarterback Mason Spark has spent years running from relationships. Don’t get me wrong, he has plenty of relationships of the one-night variety but he doesn’t have friends or family for that matter. A product of a broken home and years in the system followed by a stint in juvie, Mason is a hurt, broken man who conceals it by being an ogre…to everyone. His coach is tired of it. His teammates are tired of it. His sponsors of tired of it. His last chance to prove that he is cleaning up is life is to get married to a woman who can reign him in a little bit.
It is Maddie’s job to find the perfect match for Mason but so far her “perfect on paper” matches have not gotten past the introductory phone call. Upon the first face-to-face meeting with Mason, Maddie fantasizes about committing murder. After getting to know Mason, Maddie’s fantasies begin to turn a little more x-rated which is so confusing because Mason is not Maddie’s “perfect on paper” man.
J.T. Geissinger has, all in one book, quoted George Carlin, The Princess Bride, as well as Harry Potter. She has also made me fall in love with tattoed hunk, Mason Spark who will be playing quarterback for the Atlanta Pioneers in Super Bowl LIV (wink wink). I can’t wait to watch the game! Go Pioneers (but only for the purpose of this review because this girl right here is hoping that Kansas City goes all the way – GO CHIEFS!!)
