How I Met Your Brother (Power of the Matchmaker) by Janette Rallison {Review}

How I Met Your Brother (Power of the Matchmaker)
by Janette Rallison
Kindle Edition, 209 pages
Published November 1st 2016 by Rally Point Press

The best day of his life, the worst day of hers.

Back in college, Marco Dawson never thought of Belle as anything more than a friend. If she had crossed his mind on his wedding day, it was probably only to wonder why she hadn’t shown up to be a bridesmaid. After all, his new wife was her old roommate. Seven years have passed since then, and Belle just found out that Marco is divorced and vacationing with his family in an elegant Cancun resort. She’s not about to let the right man get away twice. She heads to the resort where she plans to casually bump into Marco and ignite some romantic flames.

But Belle hadn’t planned on one thing: Flynn Dawson, Marco’s handsome, charming, and determined twin brother. He thinks Marco and his ex-wife can make amends and he’s not about to let Belle stand in the way.

Part Sabrina, part While You Were Sleeping, romantic comedy readers will eat this book up!  

My Review: 5 Stars

I love books about reuniting with former crushes. In Belle's case, Marco (aka Dawson) never really liked her in that way in college, but matchmaker Pearl gives her a heads up and off to Cancun she goes. She was head-over-heels for him back then and after his marriage ends, she's ready to make him hers. 

Would you ever go for one twin and then change your mind and go for the other one? That's a tricky situation, but boy, oh, boy--it sure works in this story! I was laughing, dying of humiliation, smiling, swooning, and devouring every delicious page of this book. Janette Rallison has the knack of writing adorably sweet, funny, and darling chick-lit romances that leave me with a huge, goofy smile on my face. 

Belle has changed over time and has really found herself, yet she still has more self-discovery to unearth and I loved that process in this story. The setting? To die for! The romance? Hysterically swoony. Yes, I loved it all. Flynn is quite a force to be reckoned with, and even his underhanded moments are the best. It's safe to say that I'm in love with love after reading this one.

Content: mild, swoony romance

About the Author:

Janette RallisonJanette Rallison is old. Don't ask how old, because it isn't polite. Let’s just say she's older than she’d like to be and leave it at that.

Janette lives in Chandler, Arizona with her husband, five children and enough cats to classify her as "an eccentric cat lady." She did not do this on purpose. (The cats, that is; she had the children on purpose.) Every single one of the felines showed up on its own and refuses to leave. Not even the family's fearless little Westie dog can drive them off.
Since Janette has five children and deadlines to write books, she doesn't have much time left over for hobbies. But since this is the internet and you can’t actually check up to see if anything on this site is true, let's just say she enjoys dancing, scuba diving, horse back riding and long talks with Orlando Bloom. (Well, I never said he answers back.)
