Matthew

Drafted first round pick when I was seventeen, playing first line at eighteen, branded NHL's bad boy at nineteen. At twenty-three I was cut from the team and living back home with my parents. A knock on the door brought an opportunity I couldn’t turn down. All I had to do was prove I learned from my mistakes, so no way would I fall for a chick with a pouty mouth even if I wanted to spend all day devouring it.

Karrie

When my father gave me a job, I had no idea it would be to babysit some washed up NHL player. He wanted me to be his chaperone, his overpaid babysitter. I thought it was a joke. Then I met him, Matthew Grant. I wasn’t prepared for this particular bad boy. He’s not only hot but he’s arrogant and kinda sweet in a 'you make me crazy' kind of way.
Basically now that he’s finished screwing up his life, he’s decided to turn mine upside down.

She’s the first thing I’ve ever wanted more than hockey.

He’s the guy I know I should stay away from.

But what if this thing that started out so wrong turns into something so perfect?

My thoughts…  **spoilers**


Matthew found fame at a young age playing hockey and lived the life of partying hard and sleeping with puck bunnies, but after too much partying and getting into trouble his hockey career suffered. Finally, after some time Matthew gets an offer by a pro team after not playing professionally for a while. There's just one condition… he gets a chaperone to keep him in check and out of trouble. Matthew is not happy with this new arrangement, he will have someone watching his every move and living with them.

Matthews new chaperone, is the boss’s daughter, Karrie, a very young and gorgeous woman. The attraction is strong and mutual, Karrie wants to keep things between them strictly professional and prove to her father that she can do the job without complications. Matthew has other plans, he didn't let Karrie push him away and he decides that sooner or later she will be his.

“This, me, you. It’s happening. I’m going to kiss you,” I tell her, running my tongue out while I kiss her neck. “I’m going to come home and come to your bed. Or you can come to mine, but” – I kiss her lips again – “Make no mistake about it. This thing is happening.”
― Natasha Madison, Something So Perfect

The banter between Matthew and Karrie had me laughing at moments, she keeps pushing him away and he went all alpha male with her. Normally I don’t care for stories that have a insta-love trope, but overall, I did enjoy this one. The author did add some unnecessary drama (Matthew being accused of rape) and it was resolved rather quickly. I was disappointed and felt it did not enhance the story. So why add it? Even though Something So Perfect is part of a series, it can be read as a standalone.

Happy Reading -J
