In small towns, no one lets the facts get in the way of juicy gossip.
Terri Rayburn is a girl with a reputation. She doesn't deserve it, but having grown up on the outskirts of Summer Hill, Virginia, she knows how small towns work. The only way to deal with vicious gossip is to ignore it. So she keeps to herself as she runs the summer resort on Lake Kissel.
When she returns home from a short trip to find a handsome stranger living in her house, she smells a rat. Someone is trying to fix her up, and she has to admit that Nate Taggert is just her type. However, Nate is engaged to the daughter of the mayor and strictly off-limits.
Nate and Terri form an unlikely friendship while he throws himself into life at the lake. As Nate starts to hear rumors about Terri, he's confused. Knowing how smart, beautiful, and strong she is, he's determined to discover the source of the gossip. Terri doesn't want to revisit the past, but Nate won't stop until he discovers the truth — even if the truth might be more than either of them can handle.
Set in the beloved fictional town of Summer Hill, Virginia, Met Her Match examines the tensions between the wealthy townspeople, the summer vacationers, and the working-class people who keep the town and resort running. Told with humor and heart, Met Her Match is the perfect summer escape.
Dumb. Dumb. Dumb. I drive a lot for work, so I started this and had nothing else better to do, so I finished it, but it was a chore. First of all, I had a hard time getting past the readers voice. She made the characters seem desperate, needy, whiny, meek, and always out of breath, it got really annoying. Second, the story line of an entire town alienating a young girl for her moms actions 15 years prior, for the reasons given, isn’t believable. And I come from a small town! Third, the writing was immature and stupid. I was literally laughing out loud when Terri took the damp towel that Nate had wiped his sweat off with after working hard all day and she wanted to bury her face in it!!! LOL! Omg! Never. Going. To. Happen! Then...**Spoiler Alert ** I absolutely HATED how the book ended! Are you kidding me!?!?! The last “scene” (insert serious looking-at-the-back-of-my-eye-sockets eye rolling!)..a blow job...really?!?! That’s all you could gone up with? Really?!?! I’m not sure I’ll ever read another book by this author, ever!
