Book Tour, Review and Giveaway: The Matchmaker's Replacement by Rachel Van Dyken

The Matchmaker’s Replacement
Rachel Van Dyken
(Wingmen Inc. #2)
Published by: Skyscape
Publication date: August 9th 2016
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.

A classic tale of friendemes to lovers. With a twist.

We meet Gabi and Lex in book one, Matchmaker's Playbook, but this is their story.
Lex is not your stereotypical geek. In fact if I had to describe him best I'd say he was anything but geeky. A genius, player. Gabi is Ian's best friend who has crushed on Lex forever, until he rejected her. Now at best they only tolerate each other for the benefit of their mutual friend.

Little does Gabi know, Lex has had it hard for her for some time, but per Ian - she's always been off limits.

When she becomes the next 'matchmaker' due to Ian's busy schedule, lines become blurred. Lex's excuses are no longer valid and things really heat up.

I'm giving this little romantic comedy of sorts 4 stars. One Click today!

I have been waiting on the Matchmaker’s Replacement by Rachel Van Dyken since I finished the Matchmaker’s Playbook!! I will tell you that it did not disappoint and you have to read it for yourself. 4.5 stars!!

This installment of the Wingman, Inc. series pits Lex against Gabi. Their love to hate you and hate to love you relationship is fully intact, but maybe there is more to their feelings hiding underneath the surface. Gabi has had feelings for Lex since she was 18, but his rejection of her stung; and Lex tries to bury his own feelings for her using his insults and harsh tone. And now Gabi is helping out at Wingman? All hell is about to break loose.

This book was the perfect sequel for Matchmaker’s Playbook. It was hard to put down and you fell in love with the characters more than you did in book one. The book pulled you in and was well-written. It felt good to finally understand these two characters and to see old ones again. Get to one clicking today!

Lex.... ahhhh I want my own Lex so I can have my very own villian looking after me... I mean who wouldn't! In the famous RVD style she brings this sexy romance with a kick humor once again and blows me out of the water. Another great story! Fantastic! Smokin' HOT! Hilarious!

Well we all know how the story of Lex and Gabbie started right?? Well we got a glimpse of there relationship of hating eachother in the first book The Matchmakers Playbook Ian and Blake's story, but it didn't even touch the surface of what started all the drama. NO worries you will get all your answers when you pick up this fantastic book! I would give it a 4.5 stars and highly recommend to others! I would say you need to read the first book before this one because you will have a better understanding of the series as a whole, but I suppose it could be read as a standalone.

I won't bore you with details of what this story is about other than to tell you if you read the first book you knew this was coming and I hope you anticipated it just as much as I did.. or maybe even more? Well get ready for a chaotic love/hate relationship that is going to explode on your pages!

Thanks again for another fantastic story I look forward to much more in the future! Get to one clicking this bad boy cause you don't wanna miss what happens!
Lex and Gabi have a love hate relationship that you see glimpses of in the first book. You yearn to know that it goes deeper. In this book you will find just that.

Gabi is Ian's best friend, practically his family. And with that comes his male best friend Lex. Gabi has always had a crush on Lex but is rejected by him when she is 18. The problem... Ian (acting like a big brother - telling Lex he isn't good enough for her.)

Lex throws every insult he can at Gabi to help lessen his desire to take and claim Gabi.

They both harbor their secret feelings for one another, especially cause of Ian but that all comes to a head when Gabi comes to help them out at Wingman Inc.

Can they fight their attraction or finally give in?
