Quickie Review: The Matchmakers by Jennifer Colgan

Synopsis (Goodreads):
Two wrongs don't make a right, but they just might make a perfect match...

Nick Garret is flypaper for females, and he likes it that way. Women stick for a while, and when it's over they fly away. So does he. Then one rain-slick night a young woman steps in front of his pickup truck, and his jaded, cynical life takes a sharp swerve toward trouble.

Calliope did the only thing she could think to get Nick to steer his truck-and his life-in a new direction. Banished from the Fae realm for granting a wish gone bad, her punishment is an impossible task; redeem the unredeemable Nick Garret. If she fails to help him pair three couples in everlasting bliss, he's doomed to never experience real love. And she will share his fate-as a mortal.

Nick can't decide if this charming, exasperating woman is a dream come true, or a saucy, sexy nightmare sent to drive him insane. Yet something about her makes him want to rise to her challenge. He'll do anything to make her stick around a while. Besides, how much trouble can one half-naked, seemingly wingless faerie be?

Warning: This title contains sensual love scenes, mischievous Fae, removable wings and hot men in tool belts.
My Thoughts: This book was cute without crossing the line into too cute.  I think it was Nick.  He was one of those guys that could have been a massive jerk even when he was trying to be nice but instead he came across as a guy who was trying to be good but just kept screwing it up.  I don't know.  It worked for me.

Callie was sweet but she was so involved in making sure everyone else was getting their perfect ending that she didn't see what was right in front of her.  Which made the way she kept turning Nick down kinda hilarious.

Short and sweetly sexy.  I liked it.  A lot.
