Playing with Matches by Hannah Orenstein

Sasha Goldberg has a lot going for her: a recent journalism degree from NYU, an apartment with her best friend Caroline, and a relationship that would be amazing if her finance-bro boyfriend Jonathan would ever look up from his BlackBerry. But when her dream career falls through, she uses her family’s darkest secret to land a job as a matchmaker for New York City’s elite at the dating service Bliss.

Despite her inexperience, Sasha throws herself into her new career, trolling for catches on Tinder, coaching her clients through rejection, and dishing out dating advice to people twice her age. She sets up a TV exec who wanted kids five years ago, a forty-year-old baseball-loving virgin, and a consultant with a rigorous five-page checklist for her ideal match.

Sasha hopes to find her clients The One, like she did. But when Jonathan betrays her, she spirals out of control—and right into the arms of a writer with a charming Southern drawl, who she had previously set up with one of her clients. He’s strictly off-limits, but with her relationship on the rocks, all bets are off.

My Thoughts
I loved every page of this book!  I read it in 2 days (and that was because I had to take care of children, sleep and eat)!
Sasha is such a fun down to earth person who just trips into a Craig's List ad for a job as a matchmaker.  I mean, she had less than a handful of boyfriends and her parents are divorced, where does she get all her amazing match knowledge?  LOL
But this is her first real job and she is determined to make this work.
What type of job would have you swiping right all day, setting up fake profiles and going on work dates with potential matches?  WOW!  Truthfully I don't think I could handle that, and how on earth is her boyfriend Jonathan ok with this?
And just as she thought her life was going in the right direction, BAM Jonathan betrays her.  Can she keep it all together?  How will she move on from the love of her life?  Will she break matchmaker rule 101 - don't date any matches or matchees?
