The Wife Finder by Melissa McClone

Title: The Wife Finder
Series: The Billionaires of Silicon Forest #1
Author: Melissa McClone
Genre: Sweet Contemporary Romance
Release Date: October 24, 2019


When it comes to love, all bets are off…

Failure has never been an option for self-made billionaire Blaise Mortenson. So when his friends suggest a wager to see who will be the last bachelor among them, he takes the bet. He has no doubt he’ll win—especially after he hires Hadley Lowell to find perfect matches for his friends. Now all Blaise has to do is ignore his growing attraction to the gorgeous, demanding matchmaker.

Hadley runs her business like a clandestine military op, precisely controlling every feasible outcome. But falling for a client? That was a possibility she never saw coming. Blaise’s drive, determination, and the softer side he tries to hide from the world appeals to her on a gut-deep level—but while her matchmaking success rate is unbeatable, finding love for herself has been nearly impossible. There’s no way her happily ever after could come in the form of a tech billionaire who isn’t even looking for love…is there?

What should have been a simple business transaction quickly turns into something way more complicated, and Blaise starts to wonder if he’s in danger of losing more than just the bet when all is said and done…

Rating: ☆☆☆☆

Blaise and his friends are self-made billionaires and they have made a bet that means the last single man standing wins a tonne of money. Blaise is determined he won't be next to fall in love and that he will be the last man standing. In order to improve his chances, he hires wife finder Hadley to find wives for his two other friends but they can't know that is what she is doing. Enter fake relationship.

I love how Hadley is able to put Blaise in his place and leave him out of sorts. For a man who is used to people jumping to his every whim, Hadley is a refreshing breath of fresh air in his life. Hadley refuses to cow down to him.

Whilst a little cliched, this was a fun and light read that was easy to devour. A little cliche never hurts anyone every now and again.

Blaise wanted to memorize every detail.
Her blue eyes reminded him of the sky on a summer day, when flowers bloomed, the sun shone, and the dark, lonely nights didn’t last as long as they did in winter.
He stared transfixed, connected to this stranger by an invisible force. Awareness thrummed through him. Staring was rude, but he couldn’t look away from her.
Noises sounded. Muted footsteps. A door. A phone.
All Blaise could focus on was her.
Maybe this trip hadn’t been such a bad idea. He couldn’t remember the last time he’d been so…intrigued.
She blinked. “Can I help you?”
Her voice was deeper than expected, a tad husky. Sexy. He wanted to hear her say more and laugh. He couldn’t wait to hear her laugh.
She cleared her throat. “You’re Blaise Mortenson.”
The woman didn’t sound surprised. If anything, she appeared resigned.
Did that mean…?
Of course, it did. “You’re Hadley Lowell.”
She nodded once.
His insides deflated. A strange reaction. One he would ignore.
Hadley eyed him curiously. “I thought you were too busy to come to San Francisco.”
“Yes, but you’re the best matchmaker, so here I am.”
