2.0 out of 5 stars not her best, October 2, 2006
This review is from: Match Me If You Can (Mass Market Paperback)
Compared to all SEP's other work, Match Me was a let down. I love all her football series starting w/ it had to be You - and she has great characters but the story lacked the depth that she usually works into her characters. It was too pat that Bodie was rich and connected. And at the end, Heath has one session with her family and loves them to bits and we are supposed to buy into his idea of the family dynamics. In SEP's other stories like Nobody's Baby...the family felt real. Here- throughout the story SEP has them set up as some kind of irritant who always put her down and belittle her and so when they finally "root" for her, I just didnt buy it and I didn't even like them. So the end - where the hero grovels to the heroine - also didnt work- which is a shame because it worked really well in every other book of hers. Of SEP's work,my favorites have been Heaven Texas and Nobody's Baby.... Can anyone tell me why it doesn't work? Please, please let Dean Robillard's story have all the weight and humor of her older work.

I agree with you, I didn't like this book as well as I did her others. Am not sure either what it is that I found to be lacking, but this book disappointed me.

Wow. I liked the book, but this is also my first exposure to SEP. So, if Match... is not her best work, then I'm sure I'll like some of her other titles even more. Thanks for recommending a few to start with. -W
