Matched

Synopsis:

Date, Mate, Fate. The reality show like no other.

One thing a computer can’t do is manufacture love. But in this house, anything’s possible. 

Rated NC-17 for foul language, heavy drinking, and graphic sex . 

*Full length stand alone novel with no cliffhanger.*

Review:

I was looking through books the other day and realized I hadn't read Matched yet. I love Angela Graham's Harmony series, but I haven't read anything by S.E. Hall so I was curious to see how this book would be.

So Matched is not a typical book I would read. It is about a reality show and the people who are on it. It is told from the point of view of Harlow, Oakley, a famous football players, girlfriend. I must say I did not like Oakley right from the start. It is obvious Harlow doesn't want to be on this show and she thought they were going to have an actual vacation, not this. He just...he is not good to her. He doesn't seem to take her feelings into consideration, though he is not as terrible as I thought he would be in the end.

Right from the beginning Harlow makes friends with some of the nice girls on the show. There is Jasmine, the retired adult film star who doesn't think she deserves someone to treat her nicely, Emma who is here with her overbearing brother Cruz, and Callie, a gold medal gymnast. There is also something going on with Cruz right from the start, even though Harlow doesn't want to acknowledge it. I liked Cruz, he was one of my favorites from the start. Him and the girls who Harlow befriends all seem like they would be fun to hang out with.

The whole point of the reality show is that there is everyones soul mate and everyone has to figure out who the others soul mates are. There are games with rewards and then the winners get to say who they think are matches, and if they really are according to some computer program then they get to jet away on a vacation before returning home. The last one on the show wins. It was interesting to read, and I loved how everything ends up. I love who won and what they were all about. I loved who ended up with whom, and it was just a fun read.

There are of course some catty awful girls, and some pretty terrible guys, but it was fun reading a behind the scenes of a reality tv show. I must say I do enjoy watching things like this as it is kind of a train wreck sometimes, so this was a fun read. There is a lot going on behind the scenes which made it a really fun book. Now maybe I will have to check out some of S.E. Hall's books.
