    Mini review: DNF GR Ultimate Summer Reading Challenge: Let's Get It On. When I had heard about this book through Twitter I was excited! I haven't read a book about matchmaking and the synopsis sounded hilarious. Unfortunately it wasn't for me. The beginning was good! I was...

    I was looking for a quick read to breeze through the weekend, and Playing with Matches did not disappoint. Fun and fresh, it makes a perfect vacation read; or, if you need something light to break up those ugly cry drama reads ? well then, why not pick up this one? It is available ...

    This is book candy, sweet and easy to savor - but not so sweet it'll hurt your stomach. It was exactly what I needed to read right now and it's a great summer release. There's plenty of cute moments, romance, and humor. The main character is quite charming, a young college graduate...

    One of the first things I thought when I started this one was, thank god I don?t have to navigate dating anymore! Back when I was single the internet was in it?s infancy, there were definitely no apps much less dating apps. Mybfirst cell phone was a travesty, there was nothing smar...

    What originally drew me to this book was the title and the cover! Cover gush! <3. I love the matches that are pictures of men! Super cute and oh so true haha. I feel like this would have been the absolute perfect read for me before I met my fiance... because I met him on a datin...

    MY RATING: 4.5/5 STARS I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. I was captivated by the cover of this book when I first saw it on the Simon and Schuster Instagram stories. Look how simply stunning it is! It's pink! It features cartoons! Two of my...

    What an absolutely fun book this is! I was thrilled to receive an advanced copy of this novel and it did not disappoint. Sasha Goldberg is a matchmaker for an elite dating service, one that specializes in customized connections. The thing is, her own life is riddled with disconnections...

    3.5 stars Little did I realize that I had actually seen this author on a panel when I attended an event for Match Made in Manhattan and the Strand Bookstore. I remember her discussing this book and thought I needed to get my hands on a copy and lo, and behold, here I have one! Da...

    Playing with Matches is about a fresh-out-of-college New Yorker who tries to make sense of her love life while working at a high-profile match making agency. The book explores the huge societal pressure women face to find that one perfect match. While sending a profound message, Playin...

    Ms. Orenstein has lovingly, delightfully crafted a story that will have you turning pages so fast that time will also fly! It's a delicious story about a young matchmaker that I couldn't put down, one I kept getting excited about picking up, that I would think about while on my way to ...

    When I first started this book, I thought I was going to get another Devil Wears Prada where a young woman who knows nothing about matchmaking is thrust to deliver romance to strangers. When the book starts, you read that Sasha is the product of something I thought was just a myth; her...

    What a fun and unique read! Living in New York, I loved seeing the city through someone else's eyes ? and now have some new recommendations for restaurants and bars! I found myself thinking about the main character and what she would do next when I wasn't even reading the book. Perso...

    As much fun as reading Hannah's tweets (which you should understand is the highest of praise) ...

    Delightful. A fun and relatable rom-com for the Tinder age. Get ready to swipe right! ...

    Thanks so much Touchstone Books for providing my free copy of PLAYING WITH MATCHES by Hannah Orenstein - all opinions are my own. This is the perfect palate cleanser to balance out those heavy reads. It?s easy-breezy, quickly paced, addictive, and so much fun to read! I kept flipp...

    I really enjoyed this debut novel! I found the vibe to be very much like The Devil Wears Prada and Bond Girl, both books I also liked a lot. Great writing style. It was so much fun reading about a young matchmaker with zero experience trying to set other people up while her own relatio...

    I really needed this mindless book about finding love in NYC after the last one. Would recommend to someone who needs a quick beach read. ...

    I've been duped by books twice in my reading career. The first was when I didn't read a description well enough and ended up reading a Jane Austen retelling when I'm just not a fan, and the other time was this book. I loved the book. All the way up until about 95%, where, I am very sad...

    Sasha has everything she thought important on graduating from NYU: a great apartment in NYC, a roommate/best friend, a boyfriend and the world at her feet. But, when her dream job isn?t at her fingertips, she?s got to find something, and the advert for Bliss, a matchmaking service ...

    After reading this I suppose I can see why so many people have enjoyed it but unfortunately, I wasn't one of them. The cover and title both caught my attention, but the overall story just didn't work for me. *ARC provided by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. ...

    Playing with Matches by Hannah Orestein is a story of Sasha Goldberg being hired as a New York City matchmaker, she is twenty-one. For me this book was just OK, I enjoy this type of book, but I really didn't care for any of the characters. I received this book in exchange for a fai...

    A fun, light read, perfect for the summer. I did lose a little interest mid way through, but was happy I continued reading. The ending surprised me, it wasn't as fluffy as I assumed it would be and I loved that. ...

    A total fun summer beach read that I ate up in two days. It can sometimes be a bit too self aware, and a lot of NYC insidery stuff that may be a turn off to some, but it moved fast and was a fun world to escape into. ...

    Fun, easy read! ...

    What an absolutely fun book this is! I was thrilled to receive an advanced copy of this novel and it did not disappoint. Sasha Goldberg is a matchmaker for an elite dating service, one that specializes in customized connections. The thing is, her own life is riddled with disconnections...

    3.5 stars Little did I realize that I had actually seen this author on a panel when I attended an event for Match Made in Manhattan and the Strand Bookstore. I remember her discussing this book and thought I needed to get my hands on a copy and lo, and behold, here I have one! Da...

    Playing with Matches is about a fresh-out-of-college New Yorker who tries to make sense of her love life while working at a high-profile match making agency. The book explores the huge societal pressure women face to find that one perfect match. While sending a profound message, Playin...

    Ms. Orenstein has lovingly, delightfully crafted a story that will have you turning pages so fast that time will also fly! It's a delicious story about a young matchmaker that I couldn't put down, one I kept getting excited about picking up, that I would think about while on my way to ...

    When I first started this book, I thought I was going to get another Devil Wears Prada where a young woman who knows nothing about matchmaking is thrust to deliver romance to strangers. When the book starts, you read that Sasha is the product of something I thought was just a myth; her...

    What a fun and unique read! Living in New York, I loved seeing the city through someone else's eyes ? and now have some new recommendations for restaurants and bars! I found myself thinking about the main character and what she would do next when I wasn't even reading the book. Perso...

    Thanks so much Touchstone Books for providing my free copy of PLAYING WITH MATCHES by Hannah Orenstein - all opinions are my own. This is the perfect palate cleanser to balance out those heavy reads. It?s easy-breezy, quickly paced, addictive, and so much fun to read! I kept flipp...

    I really enjoyed this debut novel! I found the vibe to be very much like The Devil Wears Prada and Bond Girl, both books I also liked a lot. Great writing style. It was so much fun reading about a young matchmaker with zero experience trying to set other people up while her own relatio...

    I really needed this mindless book about finding love in NYC after the last one. Would recommend to someone who needs a quick beach read. ...

    I've been duped by books twice in my reading career. The first was when I didn't read a description well enough and ended up reading a Jane Austen retelling when I'm just not a fan, and the other time was this book. I loved the book. All the way up until about 95%, where, I am very sad...

    Sasha has everything she thought important on graduating from NYU: a great apartment in NYC, a roommate/best friend, a boyfriend and the world at her feet. But, when her dream job isn?t at her fingertips, she?s got to find something, and the advert for Bliss, a matchmaking service ...

    After reading this I suppose I can see why so many people have enjoyed it but unfortunately, I wasn't one of them. The cover and title both caught my attention, but the overall story just didn't work for me. *ARC provided by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. ...

    Playing with Matches by Hannah Orestein is a story of Sasha Goldberg being hired as a New York City matchmaker, she is twenty-one. For me this book was just OK, I enjoy this type of book, but I really didn't care for any of the characters. I received this book in exchange for a fai...

    A fun, light read, perfect for the summer. I did lose a little interest mid way through, but was happy I continued reading. The ending surprised me, it wasn't as fluffy as I assumed it would be and I loved that. ...

    A total fun summer beach read that I ate up in two days. It can sometimes be a bit too self aware, and a lot of NYC insidery stuff that may be a turn off to some, but it moved fast and was a fun world to escape into. ...

    I was looking for a quick read to breeze through the weekend, and Playing with Matches did not disappoint. Fun and fresh, it makes a perfect vacation read; or, if you need something light to break up those ugly cry drama reads ? well then, why not pick up this one? It is available ...

    I was looking for a quick read to breeze through the weekend, and Playing with Matches did not disappoint. Fun and fresh, it makes a perfect vacation read; or, if you need something light to break up those ugly cry drama reads ? well then, why not pick up this one? It is available ...

    This is book candy, sweet and easy to savor - but not so sweet it'll hurt your stomach. It was exactly what I needed to read right now and it's a great summer release. There's plenty of cute moments, romance, and humor. The main character is quite charming, a young college graduate...

    One of the first things I thought when I started this one was, thank god I don?t have to navigate dating anymore! Back when I was single the internet was in it?s infancy, there were definitely no apps much less dating apps. Mybfirst cell phone was a travesty, there was nothing smar...

    What originally drew me to this book was the title and the cover! Cover gush! <3. I love the matches that are pictures of men! Super cute and oh so true haha. I feel like this would have been the absolute perfect read for me before I met my fiance... because I met him on a datin...

    MY RATING: 4.5/5 STARS I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. I was captivated by the cover of this book when I first saw it on the Simon and Schuster Instagram stories. Look how simply stunning it is! It's pink! It features cartoons! Two of my...

    What an absolutely fun book this is! I was thrilled to receive an advanced copy of this novel and it did not disappoint. Sasha Goldberg is a matchmaker for an elite dating service, one that specializes in customized connections. The thing is, her own life is riddled with disconnections...

    3.5 stars Little did I realize that I had actually seen this author on a panel when I attended an event for Match Made in Manhattan and the Strand Bookstore. I remember her discussing this book and thought I needed to get my hands on a copy and lo, and behold, here I have one! Da...

    Playing with Matches is about a fresh-out-of-college New Yorker who tries to make sense of her love life while working at a high-profile match making agency. The book explores the huge societal pressure women face to find that one perfect match. While sending a profound message, Playin...

    Ms. Orenstein has lovingly, delightfully crafted a story that will have you turning pages so fast that time will also fly! It's a delicious story about a young matchmaker that I couldn't put down, one I kept getting excited about picking up, that I would think about while on my way to ...

    When I first started this book, I thought I was going to get another Devil Wears Prada where a young woman who knows nothing about matchmaking is thrust to deliver romance to strangers. When the book starts, you read that Sasha is the product of something I thought was just a myth; her...

    What a fun and unique read! Living in New York, I loved seeing the city through someone else's eyes ? and now have some new recommendations for restaurants and bars! I found myself thinking about the main character and what she would do next when I wasn't even reading the book. Perso...

    As much fun as reading Hannah's tweets (which you should understand is the highest of praise) ...

    Delightful. A fun and relatable rom-com for the Tinder age. Get ready to swipe right! ...

    Thanks so much Touchstone Books for providing my free copy of PLAYING WITH MATCHES by Hannah Orenstein - all opinions are my own. This is the perfect palate cleanser to balance out those heavy reads. It?s easy-breezy, quickly paced, addictive, and so much fun to read! I kept flipp...

    I really enjoyed this debut novel! I found the vibe to be very much like The Devil Wears Prada and Bond Girl, both books I also liked a lot. Great writing style. It was so much fun reading about a young matchmaker with zero experience trying to set other people up while her own relatio...

    I really needed this mindless book about finding love in NYC after the last one. Would recommend to someone who needs a quick beach read. ...

    I've been duped by books twice in my reading career. The first was when I didn't read a description well enough and ended up reading a Jane Austen retelling when I'm just not a fan, and the other time was this book. I loved the book. All the way up until about 95%, where, I am very sad...

    Sasha has everything she thought important on graduating from NYU: a great apartment in NYC, a roommate/best friend, a boyfriend and the world at her feet. But, when her dream job isn?t at her fingertips, she?s got to find something, and the advert for Bliss, a matchmaking service ...

    After reading this I suppose I can see why so many people have enjoyed it but unfortunately, I wasn't one of them. The cover and title both caught my attention, but the overall story just didn't work for me. *ARC provided by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. ...

    A fun, light read, perfect for the summer. I did lose a little interest mid way through, but was happy I continued reading. The ending surprised me, it wasn't as fluffy as I assumed it would be and I loved that. ...

    A total fun summer beach read that I ate up in two days. It can sometimes be a bit too self aware, and a lot of NYC insidery stuff that may be a turn off to some, but it moved fast and was a fun world to escape into. ...

    Fun, easy read! ...

    Ummm can I please be a matchmaker for my job so I can just date cute boys all day and my husband has to let me cause um hello - it's my JOB! OK that sounds weird, and I think I'm a bit old saying "cute boys" but hey, I'm just dreaming right?! Sasha Goldberg is young, pretty, fresh o...

    A fun, light debut novel in the chick lit genre that nonetheless creates a heroine of substance. I underestimated this book when I started, and am still not quite sure about the ending, but the ending (without spoilers) both surprised me and made me have more respect for the rest of th...

    Playing with Matches is a cute, light read about a 22 year old matchmaker in NYC, just trying to make her way at her first job out of college while balancing friendship and her own relationship. This book reads like a rom-com, and I enjoyed that there were doses of reality in the story...

    I was looking for a quick read to breeze through the weekend, and Playing with Matches did not disappoint. Fun and fresh, it makes a perfect vacation read; or, if you need something light to break up those ugly cry drama reads ? well then, why not pick up this one? It is available ...

    This is book candy, sweet and easy to savor - but not so sweet it'll hurt your stomach. It was exactly what I needed to read right now and it's a great summer release. There's plenty of cute moments, romance, and humor. The main character is quite charming, a young college graduate...

    One of the first things I thought when I started this one was, thank god I don?t have to navigate dating anymore! Back when I was single the internet was in it?s infancy, there were definitely no apps much less dating apps. Mybfirst cell phone was a travesty, there was nothing smar...

    What originally drew me to this book was the title and the cover! Cover gush! <3. I love the matches that are pictures of men! Super cute and oh so true haha. I feel like this would have been the absolute perfect read for me before I met my fiance... because I met him on a datin...

    MY RATING: 4.5/5 STARS I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. I was captivated by the cover of this book when I first saw it on the Simon and Schuster Instagram stories. Look how simply stunning it is! It's pink! It features cartoons! Two of my...

    What an absolutely fun book this is! I was thrilled to receive an advanced copy of this novel and it did not disappoint. Sasha Goldberg is a matchmaker for an elite dating service, one that specializes in customized connections. The thing is, her own life is riddled with disconnections...

    3.5 stars Little did I realize that I had actually seen this author on a panel when I attended an event for Match Made in Manhattan and the Strand Bookstore. I remember her discussing this book and thought I needed to get my hands on a copy and lo, and behold, here I have one! Da...

    Playing with Matches is about a fresh-out-of-college New Yorker who tries to make sense of her love life while working at a high-profile match making agency. The book explores the huge societal pressure women face to find that one perfect match. While sending a profound message, Playin...

    Ms. Orenstein has lovingly, delightfully crafted a story that will have you turning pages so fast that time will also fly! It's a delicious story about a young matchmaker that I couldn't put down, one I kept getting excited about picking up, that I would think about while on my way to ...

    When I first started this book, I thought I was going to get another Devil Wears Prada where a young woman who knows nothing about matchmaking is thrust to deliver romance to strangers. When the book starts, you read that Sasha is the product of something I thought was just a myth; her...

    What a fun and unique read! Living in New York, I loved seeing the city through someone else's eyes ? and now have some new recommendations for restaurants and bars! I found myself thinking about the main character and what she would do next when I wasn't even reading the book. Perso...

    As much fun as reading Hannah's tweets (which you should understand is the highest of praise) ...

    Delightful. A fun and relatable rom-com for the Tinder age. Get ready to swipe right! ...

    Thanks so much Touchstone Books for providing my free copy of PLAYING WITH MATCHES by Hannah Orenstein - all opinions are my own. This is the perfect palate cleanser to balance out those heavy reads. It?s easy-breezy, quickly paced, addictive, and so much fun to read! I kept flipp...

    I really enjoyed this debut novel! I found the vibe to be very much like The Devil Wears Prada and Bond Girl, both books I also liked a lot. Great writing style. It was so much fun reading about a young matchmaker with zero experience trying to set other people up while her own relatio...

    I really needed this mindless book about finding love in NYC after the last one. Would recommend to someone who needs a quick beach read. ...

    I've been duped by books twice in my reading career. The first was when I didn't read a description well enough and ended up reading a Jane Austen retelling when I'm just not a fan, and the other time was this book. I loved the book. All the way up until about 95%, where, I am very sad...

    Sasha has everything she thought important on graduating from NYU: a great apartment in NYC, a roommate/best friend, a boyfriend and the world at her feet. But, when her dream job isn?t at her fingertips, she?s got to find something, and the advert for Bliss, a matchmaking service ...

    After reading this I suppose I can see why so many people have enjoyed it but unfortunately, I wasn't one of them. The cover and title both caught my attention, but the overall story just didn't work for me. *ARC provided by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. ...

    Playing with Matches by Hannah Orestein is a story of Sasha Goldberg being hired as a New York City matchmaker, she is twenty-one. For me this book was just OK, I enjoy this type of book, but I really didn't care for any of the characters. I received this book in exchange for a fai...

    A fun, light read, perfect for the summer. I did lose a little interest mid way through, but was happy I continued reading. The ending surprised me, it wasn't as fluffy as I assumed it would be and I loved that. ...

    A total fun summer beach read that I ate up in two days. It can sometimes be a bit too self aware, and a lot of NYC insidery stuff that may be a turn off to some, but it moved fast and was a fun world to escape into. ...

    Fun, easy read! ...

    Ummm can I please be a matchmaker for my job so I can just date cute boys all day and my husband has to let me cause um hello - it's my JOB! OK that sounds weird, and I think I'm a bit old saying "cute boys" but hey, I'm just dreaming right?! Sasha Goldberg is young, pretty, fresh o...

    A fun, light debut novel in the chick lit genre that nonetheless creates a heroine of substance. I underestimated this book when I started, and am still not quite sure about the ending, but the ending (without spoilers) both surprised me and made me have more respect for the rest of th...

    Playing with Matches is a cute, light read about a 22 year old matchmaker in NYC, just trying to make her way at her first job out of college while balancing friendship and her own relationship. This book reads like a rom-com, and I enjoyed that there were doses of reality in the story...

    I can see the appeal for this book but I don't think I'm the target audience. I felt this was "too young" (for lack of a better way to put it) for me (I'm in my 40's).I hated to, but with so many good books on my tbr list I decided to DNF. I do appreciate the arc in exchange for an hon...

    super enjoyable , fun read! ...

    ****3.5 Stars**** Sasha is just trying to make it in NYC, like everybody else; she graduated with her dream degree and has a job in her field, she has a handsome, albeit distracted, boyfriend that loves her and a best friend that supports her. When she loses her job, she is devasted b...
