Working alongside his brothers to build a new veterans center, Brandon just wants to get the job done. That all changes when his uncle asks Chloe—the beautiful and confident daughter of a famous chef and food critic—to design the center’s kitchen.

This may be the third in the series, but any fan will know that there is a big collection of books with the similar premise – interfering and matchmaking older generation... and they are very good at it! Even knowing that it is not really a secret, it is great fun watching the lengths that will be taken to ensure that the pairing really does work. It is really very amusing, even if one has to agree with the 'victims' sometimes that they aren't that keen on being manipulated in their romances.

Brandon has two brothers who have already caught the love bug, so he is even more on guard and disinterested than them, but of course, that does not mean that he will be tested in his resolve to remain single! He is very happy to be involved in the new building project as he knows how valuable the centre will be for ex-servicemen. His time in the Air Force has given him a good insight into that. But having to work with Chloe on the kitchen design is challenging, to say the least.

Chloe is very close friends with Brooke and Sarah, who are now in romances with Brandon's brothers, so it is inevitable that the six of them will spend time together. But Chloe is not interested in a relationship, even if the one night they did spend together was spectacular. She would rather the memory than get involved and get hurt. As Brandon gets up the courage to acknowledge his feelings, now the challenge is to make Chloe see how it could be too.

I love all these books and find them to be perfect escapism – I am back in a world full of characters I know well, and I love catching up with them and seeing who is next in line... and we get a strong hint as to who will be next too!

Brandon's time in the military did not prepare him at all for his uncle's meddling ways. Sure, he's grateful for the money that his uncle, Joseph Anderson, has given him as part of the legacy of the family he never knew. What he didn't expect was his uncle's penchant for matchmaking.

Chloe Hitman has been in the restaurant business in some form or fashion all her life. Her mother is a food critic and her father a well-renowned chef. She knows that her choice of careers is a disappointment to her parents – running a cafe in small town – but it's exactly where she wants to be. She wants to be part of something, part of the fabric of this community. She also knows to watch out for Joseph Anderson and his matchmaking. It's not that she's adverse to love, she just doesn't have time for it and to make her restaurant a success.

Joseph Anderson plays the long game and slowly moves the pieces in where he wants them and let's nature take its course. So he's not surprised to find that Brandon is not only attracted to Chloe, he's doing his best to crack through those walls. Chloe, on the other hand, is not looking for love and is doing her best to make her interest in Brandon seem casual.

A very good book and worth the afternoon spent ignoring housework.

I was so looking forward to this story. Brandon and Chloe hooked up after a wedding, but then realized that they probably were just hooking up to hook up. However, once Brandon realizes that he truly wants to see where things might go with Chloe, he's hard pressed to back down.

Chloe is a successful business owner and chef. However, she has always been compared to her father, the famous chef, and the harsh food critic, her mother. She has always felt that she didn't truly ever live up to her potential and even with the success of her place, she still feels like she has to defend it when her mom comes to town.

Brandon and Chloe are tasked with helping get a veteran's center up and running. Each have their own talents and bring those to the table. I think where I got lost in this story is that there was a lot of repetitiveness from previous stories.

Brandon and Chloe could have had an amazing story but they almost get lost in the histrionics of the previous books. I wish that the book focused more on them rather than other characters. Also, Brandon, to me, was stalkerish and pushy. I didn't really get the chemistry between the two main characters much.

While this had a lot of potential for me, it just didn't really live up to what I was expecting. It is a quick read, so you'll finish with relative ease; however, if you're expecting an epic love story, you'll be disappointed.
