Get ready for ten weeks of romance in the Bahamas with a new series brought to you by some of the best authors in the inspirational and sweet romance genres…

Ten delightful - and standalone - novellas linked by one matchmaking week. You’ll want to devour each one!

It’s Matchmaking Week at an all-inclusive resort on a private island in the Bahamas. Each guest has been expertly paired and is here to enjoy one full week with their match. While there’s no money-back guarantee on the paid trip, the participants are guaranteed to find love!

This is A Match for Mr. Write...
Magazine editor Gemma Carmichael has been secretly in love with her co-worker Blade for 5 years and when he suddenly breaks off his engagement, Gemma decides this is her chance to woo her man. He signs up for a matchmaking getaway and she decides to do it too, positive they're a match. But to her surprise, she's matched with Sawyer Bennett, a brooding romance author who only came on the island to write and who doesn't even believe in love. (Obviously the Sterling sisters have no idea what they're doing!)

Romance author, Sawyer Bennett, did not sign up for this. He thought his travel agent cousin was sending him on a nice, normal vacation in the Bahamas, not to bad reality TV recreation. The only romance he's interested in is the one between his characters. After all, family history has shown him that true love is just fiction, which is why he's so good at writing it. But now, he's stuck in a romance book situation, with contracts that can't be broken and matched to the pretty but kooky redhead, Gemma. (Obviously, the Sterling sisters have no idea what they're doing!)

However, the magazine Gemma works for would provide great publicity for his next release, so he agrees to help her win her true love in exchange for her putting his book on the reviewer's upcoming list. Seems like an easy enough way to pass the week. Sawyer still doubts the existence of true love but by the end of the week, he can’t help but wonder if he could finally have found the write woman for him after all.

My Review: 5 Stars
Did someone say "Bahamas?!" I'm in love with the idea of this new series, especially with the romantic setting, and can't wait to read all of these stories of this matchmaking week. 
Gemma has been "stalking" her co-worker, Blade, and just knows they're a match made in heaven so when the Sterling sisters match her with grumpy romance author, Sawyer, she's just a little put out. 
I adored the plan that is hatched between Gemma and Sawyer. So many laughs were had as this duo worked hard to get what they both wanted. These characters are quirky and fun, which made for a very entertaining read. And do you know what? I'm kind of dying to read one of Sawyer's romance books--why isn't he real?! 
I love the way Shirk weaves a wonderful tangled story of realizations, humor, and romance, and just the right dose of reality--I could have read about these characters for 100 more pages.
