Mar 16, Richard Pierce rated it liked it Shelves: So well-written you'll really dislike the main character, which is the point. Things don't matter; emotiins do. Well worth a read. Feb 09, Emily rated it it was ok Shelves: reviewed , chick-lit. Lindsey is not happy with the bridesmaid dress her future step mother picked out. Really she is just not happy with the prospect of a stepmother. An only child and the light of her father's life since her mother died when Lindsey was a baby, Lindsey is on a mission to make sure she stays the only woman in her father's life.

Driving away perspective stepmother after stepmother till it looks like Karen might stick and make it to the altar. Lindsey takes things into her own hands, but with Karen go Lindsey is not happy with the bridesmaid dress her future step mother picked out. Lindsey takes things into her own hands, but with Karen gone and her father devastated Lindsey has to consider if she is really thinking of others or just herself and how she can fix the situation now.

This book did have character growth in it and it did keep my attention at points. Unfortunately, there were more points in it where I could say "I know what happens next" or "I know what's going on" while Lindsey was still clue less about anything that was happening. Due to figuring out kind of the main plot before the main character made the book less enjoyable for me.

Yes, I still finished it and wanted to finish it. I got to a point with the book where I could read, but not really focus on it, just skimming the pages so the plot could move on and be done. I did like how it was all brought together and wrapped up in the end, but getting there with the "oh I get it moments" wasn't worth the journey to get to the end. I would go into more detail, but I don't want to give away the whole book in case someone does want to read the book. Also, the main character was really annoying though out the whole book.

In my opinion she was so horrible and such a caricature at the start that she was going to have to change. Making her lessons and how she learns them expected. Overall, I wouldn't read this book again. I think if I knew about the main character before I started it I wouldn't have read it in the first place, so I am glad I didn't know about it. I do plan on trying other books by this author, she has an interesting one coming out in March. But, I can't say that I would recommend Matchbreaker to other readers.

You couldn't really like the main character of Lindsey and her antics to split her father and his current partner up.

Full of laugh out loud situations, steamy hot kisses and drool worthy leading men, Matchbreakers will warm your heart on the coldest days.

My opinion was that it started off okay, although the beginning was quite slow to get going with. It has some good themes, about try to kill her to be step mother. But overall I found the book very far fetched, and also didn't like the main character. I found her very disrespectful and that she couldn't see any other good in the world She was horrible to eveyone and it didn't seem as though she was going to change.

But she was never whiter than white to begin with, so baby steps first with Lindsay! Dec 23, Umang rated it liked it. It's light reading. If you need a book to pick up at the airport because you have nothing to do - I'd recommend this. I feel it would do better as a movie than a book.

I won't lie, it did keep me entertained but I wouldn't go for this book if I was actually looking for a good book to read. It's a simple book and it's something you want to read if you're not in the mood for an in-depth book with a twisted theme. Very simple book but not a bad one. Just not THAT great either.

Mar 03, Karschtl rated it liked it Shelves: bookcrossing , chick-lit , read-in It does not happen very often, that the main character of a chick-lit novel is pretty unlikable - not to say very unappealing and outright mean to others.

Of course she will change her character over the course of the story.
