Book Summary

"Fast paced, witty, and reminded me of Jill Shalvis." Romance Reviews and More

A country music heartthrob and his long-lost love walk into a wedding...

Will Truitt grew up living a country song. His momma died, his daddy went to prison, and his dog ran away. Now, as superstar Billy Brenton, his life should be pretty dang good. But he hasn't been able to write a decent song in months. Crashing a wedding in a quirky little bridal-obsessed town is supposed to provide inspiration to get his career back on track. Instead, all he finds are regrets when he comes face-to-face with the only woman to ever crush his heart.

Lindsey Castellano gave up on love a long time ago. As a cutthroat divorce attorney on the outskirts of a town devoted to brides, weddings, and happily ever after, she's honed her skills at avoiding love, commitment, and inevitable heartbreak. Or so she thought until Will Truitt reappears in her life.

When Lindsey shattered Will's heart fifteen years ago, she'd been a sorority girl on her way to the top. He'd been a lowly janitor with a dream. Now he's on top of the world, and she's the last person he should need or want.

But she's the only person who has ever inspired his music. And he's the only man she's never been able to forget. Have the years made them wiser, stronger, and better able to love, or this time, will they simply crash and burn harder?

Book Opinions

  • Matched

    By Tiggy/Cookie
    So disappointed. With all the great ratings I was hoping for a better book. It was so slow and even silly. Less than half way through I couldn’t take anymore.
  • Another winner...

    By becky0416
    The stories just keep getting better and more's so very easy to become emotionally invested in ALL the characters. Will and Lindsey's story was so rewarding on many different levels.
  • Fabulous!

    By Amy - So Many Reads
    Oh boy, where do I begin with this one? There are some books that just leave you a little speechless. Matched by Jamie Farrell is one of them for me. It is difficult to put into words why this one pulled at my emotions so much. I am so in love with this story. I don’t have anything obvious in common with the main characters, but their emotions and feelings reached out to me physically. Not just in my imagination. I felt the characters’ pain. Their heartache. Their yearning. But I also felt their joy. Will and Lindsey are the hero and heroine in Matched, the second book in the Misfit Brides Series. They met and fell in love one spring break many years before and now Will is back to see if Lindsey is still the one for him. Will is the country-singing southern boy who stole my heart from the beginning and never let it go. His southern charm and heart melting song lyrics were enough to want to push Lindsey out of the way and take him for myself. But, his heart only wants Lindsey. We met Lindsey in Blissed, as Natalie’s sister and the divorce lawyer who is not always welcome in the most married-est place on Earth – the town of Bliss. However, she is not the tough, baby-eating rebel lawyer that everyone sees and Will is the only one that can all her on it. She inspires him and his music but she is so lost she fights him and her feelings every step of the way. Will and Lindsey are both struggling with finding their true self and happiness. When they are together they are amazing. They believe in each other like no one else does and the love and respect they have for one another is so palpable. Being together makes them a better version of themselves. Their romance is an interesting one. Lindsey puts limits on it because she doesn’t want to get hurt. Will believes he can get past the line in the sand she draws. It is a wild ride for sure and never a dull moment with the two of them. Oh and the intimate scenes? Perfect. The balance between detail and imagination works great for these stories. I especially enjoy the steamy scene in which they are interrupted. One of the best things about a series is meeting up with old friends from past books and being introduced to new ones. In Matched we get more of Natalie, CJ, Pepper and Kimmie among others from Blissed. We meet Will’s family and let me tell you, I would love to see his sister Mari Belle go head to head with Marilyn (QG) and find out who wins. Farrell is so talented at adding little bits of quirkiness to each of the characters and it really brings them to life and makes them human. We all have quirks in our personalities. Matched is an incredibly emotional journey from beginning to end. I was constantly flipping pages and could not put it down. If you are looking for a contemporary romance that will inspire you through laughter and tears and a few country songs, give Matched a try.
  • Fabulous series

    By penny42058
    I absolutely feel in love with all the characters in Matched and I'll definitely be reading more books by Jamie Farrell. Will and Lindsey first met fifteen years ago. They fell in love, but at the end of their week, Lindsey broke Will's heart. Now, they meet again at the wedding of Natalie and CJ. How are things going to turn out this time? Will is country superstar Billy Brenton and Lindsey is a successful divorce attorney. I highly recommend this book to everyone!!
  • Matched does NOT disappoint!

    By Elizabeth Ness
    LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!! Such an AMAZING book! MUST READ! One of my favorite things in the world is curling up with a Jamie Ferrell novel. Matched does NOT disappoint! I fell into this book immediately and I never left. I am still thinking about how much I love Jamie's characters. I love how easily Jamie hooks you into the story and how easily you can connect with her characters. Jamie Farrell is one of my all time favorite authors. I LOVE Lindsey and Will's (aka Billy Brenton's) story! Lindsey fell in love once before but walked away and broke Will's heart. Imagine her surprise when she runs into him years later and discovers her Will is now sexy, famous, country singer Billy Brenton. Sparks fly, but can these two make it work? Come on this magical journey that is Lindsey and Will's love story! This story is so fun and engaging. I had all the good fells with this story. I laughed out loud, I swooned, I felt heart break, I fell in love with Will, I felt so sad when I realized I had run out of pages to keep reading. Matched in #2 on the Misfit Brides of Bliss Series, but it works GREAT as a standalone. But honestly Jamie tells such wonderful stories and her books are so amazing you don't want to miss Book #1. I ABSOLUTELY recommend Matched!!! You won't be disappointed!! I can NOT wait to read what's next!!! Squee!!! I love Jamie Ferrell's books!!!
  • Beautiful journey of love, redemption and learning to believe in yourselff

    By mj_toth
    Lindsey is one tough cookie. She grew up in Bliss, a town focused on weddings, and she has a gift. She can tell when a couple is a good match but when sharing her knowledge in college turns her friends away, she decides to hide her gift. Though, one spring break she encounters Will, a fabulous guy that sweeps her off her feet until she gets scared and breaks his heart. She boldly becomes a divorce attorney, something no one in Bliss wants to consider. Will shows up in Bliss, he is now a famous singer, having achieved all his dreams. When Will shows up, Lindsey's match meter goes haywire and she still believes they aren't a good match. As Will finds his music, can he crack open Lindsey's heart? A beautiful journey of love, redemption and learning to believe in yourself.
  • Blissfully in Love

    By SBart79
    Loved Will's and Lindsey's HEA. With a few bumps in the road. They met fifteen years ago as teenagers and ended badly. Fast forward, Lindsey is now a divorce lawyer and Will is now a big time country singer. Now in Bliss, the town known for weddings they meet up again. Lindsey has a secret gift for matchmaking, but does not want it to work on her. She gives Will and her three weeks of bliss, will it be enough. I love the town of Bliss and all of it's quirky residents. It was great to catch up the couples of Bliss. I so enjoyed all of the southern sass and cooking. I may be biased but I loved the dog, Wrigley!! Looking forward to reading Kimmie's story. I received this book form the author as a gift for an honest review.
  • Another fun read in Bliss

    By DaneWeimMama
    Adored this book (second in the series Misfit Brides Of Bliss, but can be read as a stand alone.) The love story between Lindsey & Will began way back when they were teenagers & ended badly. When Will (now a big country singer) shows up to sing at her sister's wedding they get a second chance at love. I won't spoil the fun by giving away the details but its not your usual love story. Such a fun book.... love the crazy town of Bliss. Was given an ARC in return for an honest review.
  • Read it now! ;)

    By Jujulove17
    A book doesn't get any more perfect than this! Will make you laugh, cry and get all hot and bothered. A hot rock star reunites with the woman who inspired him to ge where he is today. On small problem, she broke his heart and embarrassed him publicly. They reunite and things heat up. Jamie will also make you fall in love with the whole Bliss community and leave you wanting to know more about all the characters! Loved this book. It's a definite must read!
