Matchmaking guru Kennedy Pepperdine’s life is perfect. Perfect job. Perfect friends. Perfect boyfriend. Except…when she gets trapped in an elevator with a handsome stranger, she accidentally confesses a secret: maybe her perfect boyfriend, Justin, isn’t so perfect for her after all. But a matchmaker should be able to successfully match herself, right? Thankfully, she’ll never see the handsome stranger again. Until she heads home with Justin for the holidays and learns that the sexy stranger is none other than Justin’s older brother, Matt.

Matt Ellis is trying to be on his best behavior for his mother—it is Christmas, after all. But when he recognizes the beautiful woman from the elevator—the one he hasn’t been able to stop thinking about for months—his best behavior is being held by a thread. Matt’s always sacrificed for his family, and nothing is more important than their happiness, but the more time he spends around Kennedy, the more he wonders if her supposed “right match” might just be the wrong brother.

Yes, she still loved Justin, but every time she was in a room with Matt, it was all she could do not to get caught up in the magnetism of attraction that was building between them.


Well, I have another book to add to my list of favorite Christmas romances! Wrong Brother, Right Match was a sugary sweet story that I found to be fully entertaining and satisfied this very sappy Holiday romance junkie. So if you’re just like me, go and grab yourself a nice hot cup of cocoa and get all cozy under a nice warm blanket and dive into this story!! We get a lovable Heroine who is yearning to belong to a close-knit family and dreams of celebrating a magical Christmas, and a delicious Hero who is torn between family loyalties and what his heart truly desires. I found this story to be completely engrossing and although it was missing the steam, I really didn’t feel that it was even needed. This would make the PERFECT Hallmark Christmas Romance!!

Kennedy Pepperdine is a young entrepreneur. She is the CEO of her very own online dating service called Match Made Easy. It has a 99% success rate and she and her boyfriend Justin happen to be one of the couples that make up that percentile. Kennedy seems to have it all going for herself at the moment but things weren’t always so perfect in her life. Growing up with a single mother who spent most of her life marrying the wrong men, really took a toll on Kennedy. She vowed to never make the same mistakes that her mother did. She wants a stable relationship with a guy who shares all the same interests and what she has with Justin completely fits that bill. Her perfect and uncomplicated existence gets challenged during a business trip in Vegas. Kennedy ends up getting stuck in an elevator with an insanely handsome guy and while she is experiencing a full-blown panic attack, the guy ends up kissing her. This kiss is like no other she’s ever had before and even six months later Kennedy can’t seem to forget that handsome stranger. Things are about to get seriously interesting and a whole lot messy for her when these two unexpectedly cross paths again.

It’s nearly Christmas and Kennedy is traveling with her now fiancé, Justin, to his family’s home to spend the holidays with them. This is also the first time she’s meeting them and she is beyond excited. Finally, she thinks she will be a member of a Norman Rockwell type family and will be participating in old family holiday traditions. Never did she expect that Mr. Hottie Elevator guy would be the one to greet them when they arrived at her soon to be in-laws home.

Matt Ellis is also more than a little shocked when he finds out that his little brother’s fiancé is the hot redhead that he kissed in that elevator. He too has not been able to forget her the past six months and he also remembers their conversation in which Kennedy confessed that she wasn’t sure that her relationship was going to last with Justin. So now the two meet again and things are anything but easy between them. There is apparently a bit of hostility coming from Matt towards Kennedy. Matt has had his heart broken in the past by a woman who claimed to love him so he’s just a little more than cynical when it comes to love.

As luck would have it, Justin leaves Kennedy at his mother’s house for a few days while he is called back to Boston for work. While Justin is away, Matt is the designated tour guide for Kennedy and although at first things are tense and awkward, there is no denying the strong attraction that exists just beneath the surface. Kennedy can’t ignore the intense feelings she has whenever she is with Matt. It’s a spark that doesn’t ever surface between her and Justin. Matt struggles with his feelings of family loyalty vs. what his heart truly desires.

Will Kennedy choose messy and passionate over easy and safe? Can Matt finally put his wants first over his inherent sense of family responsibility?

WRONG BROTHER, RIGHT MATCH is currently available. Don’t miss out on this sweet holiday read!!
