About this ebook

From New York Times bestselling author Kristen Ashley comes the new book in her River Rain Series, Making the Match.

Decades ago, tennis superstar Tom Pierce and “It Girl” Mika Stowe met at a party.

Mika fell in love. Tom was already in love with his wife. As badly as Tom wanted Mika as a friend, Mika knew it would hurt too much to be attracted to this amazing man and never be able to have him.

They parted ways for what they thought would be forever, only to reconnect just once, when unspeakable tragedy darkens Mika’s life.

Years later, the impossible happens.

A time comes when they’re both unattached.

But now Tom has made a terrible mistake. A mistake so damaging to the ones he loves, he feels he’ll never be redeemed.

Mika has never forgotten how far and how fast she fell when she met him, but Tom’s transgression is holding her distant from reaching out.

There are matchmakers in their midst, however.

And when the plot has been unleashed to make that match, Tom and Mika are thrown into an international intrigue that pits them against a Goliath of the sports industry.

Now they face a massive battle at the same time they’re navigating friendship, attraction, love, family, grief, redemption, two very different lives lived on two opposite sides of a continent and a box full of kittens.

Kristen Ashley doesn't do anything less than fabulous and epic. Making The Match is the most epic level of second chance romance with complex characters, rich feels and angst overload.The author talked about an astonishing range of difficult subjects here. Grief. Loss. Morality. Family love and values. Great parents who made some greater kids through tough times. It was such a soul deep story of love and redemption and I am head over heels in love. ( I reviewed an early copy voluntarily)

Kristen Ashley is immensely talented at writing romances filled with emotion, angst and keep you turning pages anxious to see what will happen next. Making the Match is no exception. Kristen Ashley can write about characters I normally can't stand, and do it in such a way that I can feel empathy and compassion and even cheer to see them have their happy ever after. I've been intrigued by Tom and couldn't wait to read his story.

4.5 stars--MAKING THE MATCH is the fourth instalment in Kristen Ashley’s contemporary, adult RIVER RAIN romance series. This is forty eight year old, multi-media artist Mika Stowe, and former professional tennis player turned doctor Tom Pierce’s story line. The premise is impassioned and captivating; the romance is seductive and fated; the characters are determined, edgy and moving forward.
