I liked Dunlop's book, but because of all the following errors, I could only give it two stars.
1) The author writes that her heroine is a blond, then she's referred to as having red/auburn hair, then she has her heroine call herself a blond. What?
2) There are multiple grammatical errors...of/or...a/an...where/when...onto/into...and many more.
3) A dress is described as having "...spaghetti straps and a halter bodice". Huh? How is that even possible?
4) Have you ever known a man to buy himself "a tight fitting cowl-neck sweater"? Dunlop's hero does just that, and then he wears this "cowl-neck" short-sleeved sweater. Huh? No way! Perhaps the author meant a turtleneck sweater.
5) The author says her hero DID know something when he did NOT.
6) Or how about this statement? "Her arms automatically tightened around her neck." What? Did she strangle herself? Of course, she meant to write "...around his neck", but this lack of proper editing occurs throughout the book!
7) The heroine takes off her jeans/shirt before she spends the night with the hero, yet she leaves the next morning wearing his plaid shirt and mentions leaving her "dress" behind. She wasn't wearing a dress! Again, poor editing!
8) Near the end it says, "And I'll be grateful to them for the rest of our lives." Sorry, but that should read, "And I'll be grateful to them for the rest of my life" or "And we'll be grateful to them for the rest of our lives."
It was all these errors that kept me from giving this book five stars, because I really liked the story and her two main characters. Dunlop is a prolific author, and I'm sure she has editors, but she really should proofread her own ebooks before they are put up for sale.

A very predictable but easy to read romance. There were no glaring errors and the dialog believable in this romance between the accomplished nerd and the bubbly cheerleader type set up by the grandparents. Ok, Morgan is a little too insecure and dorky for a guy as well educated and established as he is supposed to be. And the ending is very rushed. But it beats a lot of the angst upon angst, over the top cheesy stuff on the market. For a little bubblegum for the brain, give this quick read a try.

This series is a great concept and an easy read. Highly enjoyable with great comedic moments. I enjoyed the premise of the seniors "meddling" - worked great with fun characters. I ended up getting the full series and enjoyed them all.

Be sure to read them in order, though.

I wonder if the author based her characters on the Big Bang Theory with Leonard and Penny. However, the H/h are more complex and I think that's the point of the story - don't judge a person on their looks. The heroine did have a brain, she was lazy on using it since things had come so easy for her due to her looks, but she got it in gear. The fashion challenged hero wasn't a clueless nerd, but he was a prisoner in his own mind about his abilities to attract her. The story did get a bit silly with how insecure he was, particularly after they get physical with each other and for that I take points off. I liked the idea of the scheming match making old folks although the computer program sounded a bit hokey. The dialogue between the H/h was snappy/witty. Lastly, I liked how they helped each other - she directed him on social interaction, he helped her with her acting.

I've already bought the 2nd one in this series to read next : )

I loved it. A refreshing, fun read. The hero is a nerd, he has everything going for him except for a bit of self-confidence in who he really is. The heroine is a college graduate, cheerleader girl. She too has some problems of her own. They are thrown together by some busybody elders in Florida with nothing better to do than experiment with a new matchmaking computer program.

They discover each other. He has a problem believing that the beautiful cheerleader girl could really like him. She doesn't feel that she has anything to offer the brilliant mind guy. This is a very cute story of the two of them finding out that they both have something to offer the other. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was fun, refreshing, no bad guy, no bullies, etc. It did have a good lesson in how they deal with being perceived as the nerd and the cheerleader. And how they felt being perceived that way as tho they had no feelings at all. I loved it and highly recommend it. The sexy scenes were great and believable. A must read.

An Unlikely Match wasn't a terrible read, but I didn't find it humorous like I think it was supposed to be. The senior citizens were just not as zany as they should have been. It was like it wasn't crazy enough for it to be really humorous for me. Like if it would have been more ridiculous I might have liked it more. I didn't hate it, I just didn't find it really funny.

Morgan just found a grandfather he never knew, and when he went to visit him in his senior center in Florida they decide he needs help finding a girl. The one senior is a computer genius guy and makes a dating website just for everyones' grand kids to see who would be his perfect match. They are surprised to find that Amelia is since she is...well her family calls her Amelia Airhead. Morgan is a super smart, nerdy guy so they don't think cheerleader Amelia will really be his type. They do however set everything up so they will be living next to each other and hope that they hit it off.

At first they don't really hit it off. Morgan goes on about how Amelia is used to getting guys to do everything for her because she is pretty, and Amelia thinks how Morgan is the nerdy guy who probably has a pocket protector. In their own thoughts though they feel bad for the negative things they thought about the other, and quickly there is a physical attraction between them. Both of them however feel that the other would never be interested in them, would never want to be with them because they are too hot/smart/whatever for them. That got kind of annoying to me, but I think it was supposed to be another humorous bent to the story. It just kept getting repeated so it was more annoying for me.

Finally Amelia does something about the attraction, seeing as how Morgan is too oblivious to her wanting to be with him.
