Field producer Kat Kramer needs a bold, last-ditch idea to save her job and the show she loves. Her boss and former lover dangles an overseas promotion, but Kat knows he’s really trying to get rid of her to appease his estranged wife. Kat wants to stay in L.A—she doesn’t want to live in a city where her best friend, coworker, and secret love isn’t.
Matt Corrado has enough drama. Next season’s intended star won’t commit, the show’s relationship expert wants to quit, and his sullen teenage daughter has taken over his sofa, determined to reunite her divorced parents. While Matt will do almost anything for his kid—like staying in a loveless marriage for years, even as he secretly pined for Kat—he’s determined to finally move forward.
Kat’s solution to the show’s problem is bold: produce a winter wedding special featuring last season’s controversial match. The solution to Matt and Kat’s personal drama is even bolder: fake a relationship to convince everyone that they’re in love.
I fell in love with this series and characters when I read the first book in the Matched series. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this book and learn more about Kat and Matt. Their relationship wasn’t ideal by any means. They had a lot of struggles to get through in order to achieve their happily ever after. The author took this friends to lovers/work place romance story to a whole new level of enjoyment with the spicy scenes, sweet and tender moments, and lots of family drama. I would recommend reading the Matched series in order of release so you get to know the characters better and don’t miss anything important.
