Two professional matchmakers. One fake relationship. He's a playboy. She's a good girl. What could possibly go wrong?
According to Binary Search's matchmaking service, Meg and Zander's odds of ever having a successful relationship are statistically improbable. Meg has run the numbers and knows the probability, but for some reason she can't quit thinking about her coworker, Zander--the self-proclaimed eternal bachelor.
To make matters more interesting, Zander approaches her with an unusual proposition. He's in need of a pretend girlfriend. Meg thinks this could be the answer to get him out of her system, and maybe knock the arrogant man down a few notches in the process. But what she doesn't realize is there is more to this man, something he carefully hides behind his arrogant exterior. And when her feelings begin to be anything but pretend, she knows the odds of getting hurt are more than probable.
Will they let the odds over come them, or will they find that all the reasons they are wrong for each other are exactly what make them a perfect fit?

In ” an Oyster Shell – Another stellar romance from Peel.
The Pearls – I love this dating by design series. It’s imaginative yet realistic at the same time. This is the second book in the series and I liked it even better than the first one. The first one was phenomenal as well. I liked this one a little more because the odds were a factor. The whole point of Binary search is to find who you are statistically compatible, Meg and Zander have the odds against them. It was a refreshing premise.
Meg was a refreshing heroine. She stayed true to who she was despite what she wanted. She could have easily compromised for less than what she really wanted and she never did. Zander was a bad boy playboy just the idea that Meg could be the one to tame him made me turn page after page.
This story sat well in the series, you could read it as a stand-alone but you would be missing out. These books work best if read in order. The characters from the previous book play a part in the next book. I am looking forward to the third book which will feature previous characters but also highlight some new ones. In my opinion, this is an ingenious series.
It’s humorous. This book was so good I was up until 3 reading it. I would get to a funny part and I’d have to chuckle quietly though I almost burst up laughing waking up my husband. Peel has an amazing sense of humor which has me reading just about everything she has coming out.
The Sand – It was a great book
