Brooke is a professional matchmaker with strict rules for her love life. Luke is her playboy billionaire best friend determined to break them all…
Welcome to Toujour Matchmaking Inc., where your happily ever after is guaranteed!
Brooke has finally achieved her lifelong dream of becoming a professional matchmaker, and now the company is crumbling around her. But she knows who can help—her best friend and billionaire playboy, Luke Ryder. If she can convince him to sign up as her next client, he’ll find love and she’ll keep her job. It’s a match made in heaven.
Luke has loved Brooke for eight long years. Now that she’s engaged to someone else, he’s given up hope that she’ll ever see him as anything but a best friend. When Brooke begs him for a favor, Luke is leery to accept—until he finds out that if he doesn’t, she’s moving to Italy with her fiancé. And Luke isn’t about to lose his best friend and soul mate in one swoop.
Everything is going as planned until Brooke realizes that finding Luke love means losing him forever. Suddenly, her rules to keep them in the friend zone seem ridiculous. Maybe she’s picked the wrong man for her happily ever after. Suddenly, the only match she’s worried about is the one she can’t have.
