Source: I received an eARC of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
This book was just so freaking cute and adorable!!! I loved it so much, this book was a quick read and it was the perfect mixture of everything I loved! You can read my review of book 1: The Bad Boy Bargain, here and book 2: Swinging at Love, here.
After Dylan’s initial heartbreak, all he wanted to do was focus on his baseball career. But when Lucy Foster enters his life, a lot of things start to happen differently. And after their first meeting, he doesn’t want anything to do with her, despite everything the chemistry between them is undeniable. Both of them are complete opposites, would a relationship between them be ever possible?
The plot of this book was fun and engaging. We first got a glimpse of Dylan in book 2 of this series where he fell for the same girl as his best friend. But now, he’s over that fact and he only wants to focus on his baseball. Dylan and Lucy come face to face for the first time when Lucy comes to drop off her brother for baseball coaching under him. And that’s when their face off starts! This book is not exactly enemies to lovers but quite close to that and I enjoyed every moment of it. The tension between them was quite palpable and I looved the angst! Both Dylan and Lucy were completely different from each other, whereas Dylan was the uptight and career oriented, Lucy was living in the moment kind of girl and hence, they balanced each other perfectly.
Underneath everything, Lucy had another side other than the carefree attitude. She took care of her mother, did stitches and embroidery in their shop and also took care of her little brother while her father served in te army. I enjoyed the family aspect of this book too. Especially Otis, Lucy’s little brother. He was just so damn adorable! And he reminded me a little of my kiddie brother. His insecurity was understandable when he voiced his opinion why he didn’t want them to date. But when he saw his sister hurt and crying, the way he defended Lucy’s honour in front of Dylan was just damn, too adorable!!! That scene was one of my absolute favourite in the entire book.
Despite all the differences, Dylan and Lucy both wanted to give them a chance. The chemistry between them was the off the charts and even they saw that. Their relationship escalated quickly and I have no complaints in that matter. I freaking loved the romance between them so much! Albeit, Dylan did mess up and to make up for his wrongdoing, the things he did was the sweetest ever and it melted my heart.
Overall, The Perfectly Imperfect Match was a fantastic read! The plot was executed neatly and I fell in love with each and every character! I loved the chemistry between our two main leads, Lucy and Dylan. The writing was smooth and easy to read and the pace was even throughout the book. I can’t wait to read more by this author!
