BLOG TOUR REVIEW & GIVEAWAY - The Matchmaker's Replacement by Rachel Van Dyken

The Matchmaker’s Replacement 
(Wingmen Inc. #2)

Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance

Wingman rule number two: never reveal how much you want them. 
Lex hates Gabi. Gabi hates Lex. But, hey, at least the hate is mutual, right? All Lex has to do is survive the next few weeks training Gabi in all the ways of Wingmen Inc. and then he can be done with her. But now that they have to work together, the sexual tension and fighting is off the charts. He isn’t sure if he wants to strangle her or throw her against the nearest sturdy table and have his way with her. 
But Gabi has a secret, something she’s keeping from not just her best friend but her nemesis too. Lines are blurred as Lex becomes less the villain she’s always painted him to be…and starts turning into something more. Gabi has always hated the way she’s been just a little bit attracted to him—no computer-science major should have that nice of a body or look that good in glasses—but “Lex Luthor” is an evil womanizer. He’s dangerous. Gabi should stay far, far away. 
Then again, she’s always wanted a little danger.

Where do I even start with RVD?! Her books are freaking amazing. I've only read a handful of them but I'll catch up on all of them at some point. If you're in the mood for a certain genre, you can't go wrong with her. Want suspense? Her Eagle Elite series will hook you in. Want humor? You'll fall in love with Grandma Nadine in the Bet series. Want more romance? The rest of her series will not disappoint! So what's my next RVD book on queue? Keep from the Seaside Pictures series. One word: freaking excited for that one. You'll definitely want to check out that series once you finish Wingman Inc. :)

PLOT LINE - Lex and Gabi haven't started on the right foot. Sparks flew the second they met but there was one guy who can prevent anything from happening. Ian. Lex's best friend and Gabi's childhood best friend. The one person in their lives, who they can rely on. The one person, who they don't want to lose. Practically, the most important person in their lives. Any sort of relationship between Lex and Gabi would be crossing the line. So the only way to avoid each other and that tension: become enemies. But the anger will eventually explode. When it does, you don't want to miss...

CHEMISTRY - Lex. Lex. Lex. Lex. Lex. Lex. If I say it so many times, will he pop up? The perfect name for a villain who can actually do some good. Absolute favorite part of the book and he'll continue to surprise you! When Lex and Gabi are in the same picture, you can feel the tension and slice it with a butter knife. All that angry channels some witty banter and heated stares. Everything is just so sexy between Lex and Gabi. The way he looks out for her without her knowing. Sexy. The way he pushes her buttons just to get a reaction. Sexy. The way he secretly wants to put a smile on her face. Sexy. Lex has it all. Gabi can hold up her end in sassiness and great comebacks. She'll find a way to even the playing field. 

COVER - Eye catching. Sexy. Great contrast. You wouldn't want to miss what's behind that face. ;)

SURPRISE, SURPRISE - RVD always has some tricks up her sleeve. You'll just have to wait and see for one.
