Synopsis (From Amazon):

Wingman rule number one: don’t fall for a client.

After a career-ending accident, former NFL recruit Ian Hunter is back on campus—and he’s ready to get his new game on. As one of the masterminds behind Wingmen, Inc., a successful and secretive word-of-mouth dating service, he’s putting his extensive skills with women to work for the lovelorn. But when Blake Olson requests the services of Wingmen, Inc., Ian may have landed his most hopeless client yet.

From her frumpy athletic gear to her unfortunate choice of footwear, Blake is going to need a miracle if she wants to land her crush. At least with a professional matchmaker by her side she has a fighting chance. Ian knows that his advice and a makeover can turn Blake into another successful match. But as Blake begins the transformation from hot mess to smokin’ hot, Ian realizes he’s in danger of breaking his cardinal rule…

My thoughts prior to reading:

When this book first arrived the cover did no appeal to me (I know I judge a book by a cover I am terrible), but once I read the synopsis I immediately picked it up to read. I mean how does that not catch your attention? Hunter sounds amazing and the fact that he is a major player but is falling hard for a girl, just one. Blake also sound it so cute and darn adorable.

My thoughts after reading it:

I may have melted a bit after reading it. It was as cute and lovable as I expected it to be. Hunter is your typical player and when he first meets Blake he acts like a total douchebag. Blake looks like a total tomboy when they first meet and she refuses his charms. Later unique circumstances bring them together again. Blake wants to get noticed by her childhood crush and hires Wingmen Inc. Only to find out that Hunter is the one behind it. Hunter quickly helps her change her fashion choices along with a few other tips. Hunter is surprised how stunning she looks after and wonders how he had not noticed her before. He finds himself delaying Blake’s progress because he did not want to let her go. He finds himself attracted more and more to her. The turmoil within Hunter will have you rooting for him and yelling at him to get over his self-doubt. You will also fall in love with Blake with her innocence. You will silently or not so silently want Blake to leave her childhood crush and get with Hunter. I highly recommend this book.
