book review-the matchup

i like to read. really i do, but i rarely make time for it. as much as i love a good story, i will always choose something social over going to my room to read-100% extrovert. i am always excited for the opportunity to review a book because it means i have to force myself to read-something i actually really enjoy. 
when i heard the storyline of the matchup, i knew i wanted to read it. basically valerie and gage didn't care for each other as teenagers. fast forward to their adult years. they randomly run into each other in the grocery store late one stressful evening. you'll have to read to find out the rest. 

the book is based in the lds/mormon culture. there is quite a bit of religious talk   religion is a huge part of my daily life so that aspect of the book was very natural for me. the great thing about the setting is the book is very clean-no bad language or violence. there is definitely romance, but that is very clean as well. it's very refreshing. there's a definite element of cheesy, but i don't really mind that. 

if you're looking for a quick, clean page turner, the matchup is a good one. purchase from barnes and noble here

  1. I have this on my list to read as soon as I graduate and have time for leisure reading! I used to read books like this ALL the time, and when Ashley posted about it, I had a sudden craving for one.
