Description from Publisher:
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.

My Musings:
This was my first Jennifer Shirk book and it was just so darn cute and sweet!

We start out with Kennedy, our heroine, and Matt, our hero, getting stuck in an elevator in Vegas together. She panics and he is Mr. Cool and calms her down, and she makes a confession that comes back to haunt her. Sparks fly when he plants a heck of a kiss on her... and then she runs away.

Flash ahead 6 months and Kennedy is engaged and going to meet her fiance's family. And, yup, turns out her future brother-in-law is the guy who kissed her in Vegas and set her head spinning. They do not get along at all at first and then get stuck together, doing fun holiday things in a small town, on an island.

This was a perfect story for this time of year, with plenty of adorable bonding moments happening not just between Kennedy and Matt, but also Kennedy and the rest of the Ellis family (minus her workaholic fiance). I really enjoyed all of the interactions between the whole family, including Matt and his sister, Caitlin. It was all very sweet and fun.

Overall, I thought this was a wonderful story and one I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a lighthearted holiday read!

About the Author: Jennifer Shirk
Jennifer Shirk has a bachelor degree in pharmacy-which has in NO WAY at all helped her with her writing career. But she likes to point it out, since it shows romantic-at-hearts come in all shapes, sizes, and mind-numbing educations.

She writes sweet (and sometimes even funny) romances for Samhain Publishing, Avalon Books/Montlake Romance and now Entangled Publishing. She won third place in the RWA 2006 NYC's Kathryn Hayes Love and Laughter Contest with her first book, THE ROLE OF A LIFETIME. Recently, her novel SUNNY DAYS FOR SAM won the 2013 Golden Quill Published Authors Contest for Best Traditional Romance.

Lately she's been on a serious exercise kick. But don't hold that against her.
