Get your copy HERE!!!


Two professional matchmakers. One fake relationship. He’s a playboy. She’s a good girl. What could possibly go wrong?

According to Binary Search’s matchmaking service, Meg and Zander’s odds of ever having a successful relationship are statistically improbable. Meg has run the numbers and knows the probability, but for some reason she can’t quit thinking about her coworker, Zander–the self-proclaimed eternal bachelor.

To make matters more interesting, Zander approaches her with an unusual proposition. He’s in need of a pretend girlfriend. Meg thinks this could be the answer to get him out of her system, and maybe knock the arrogant man down a few notches in the process. But what she doesn’t realize is there is more to this man, something he carefully hides behind his arrogant exterior. And when her feelings begin to be anything but pretend, she knows the odds of getting hurt are more than probable.

Will they let the odds over come them, or will they find that all the reasons they are wrong for each other are exactly what make them a perfect fit?

I received a free copy of this book from Readers Favorite for an honest review.

What do you do when the very algorithm you use to help find your customers the perfect match tells you who your imperfect match is? Well if you’re matchmaker Meg, you use the perfect opportunity get the intriguing but imperfect man out of your system. In Statistically Improbable Meg’s coworker Zander is in need of a pretend girlfriend so he approaches her because, who else? Jennifer Peel has created a fun environment featuring two characters with hidden depths. The story starts with Meg and Zander’s usual banter but from there we learn what makes them tick and who they are beyond the work facades they put on each day.

My favorite part of Statistically Improbable is the basic premise. All the science and math says that Meg and Zander are all wrong for each other. If they start something the Binary Search pretty much guarantees it won’t end well. But the pull is too strong to resist. It doesn’t matter that he’s an arrogant player, what matters is that she wants him and he wants her, even if he doesn’t want to. These two are much more than they appear and it makes their journey that much more entertaining. You knew right away that they had explosive chemistry and I had so much fun watching the fireworks.

I truly enjoyed that there wasn’t much mystery about their feelings from the reader. There wasn’t a lot of back and forth that can get annoying. They wanted each other and both have valid reasons for not going there, and watching them try to resist had me laughing out loud and flipping the pages eagerly.

NOTE: This is the second book in the series. The first book, His Personal Relationship Manager, is available but I have not personally read it…yet.
