None of the matches caught his eye as much as the matchmaker himself.

Growing up poorer than poor didn’t leave Navashen Bhattathiri many options for life outside of school. All of his concentration was on keeping his scholarships. Sixteen years later, he’s fulfilled his dream and become a doctor. Now he’s returning home to Lexington and is ready to prove himself to the world. In doing so, he reconnects with Brent Carpenter—high school classmate, real estate agent, all-around great guy… and closet matchmaker.

Brent makes it his mission to help Navashen develop a social life and meet available, interesting men. Unfortunately Navashen’s schedule is unpredictable, and few of those available, interesting men value his dedication like Brent does. Brent’s unfailing friendship and support convince Navashen he’s the one, but can he capture Brent’s heart when the matchmaker is focused on finding Navashen another man?

Nav and Brent are life long friends and when Nav moves back to Lexington after being gone for a long time, he asks Brent, who's also a real estate agent, to help him. Nav has his brother living with him. Askhat, Nav's brother, who was born a preemie, requires some help. He has asthma and due to his early birth his brain functions differently. He acts younger than he is. Nav is trying to help his brother find his independence.

Brent feels with all Nav does with his brother and work that he needs some fun in his life, and a special someone.

I have to say, I really loved Nav's relationship with his brother. It was written wonderfully and really is the highlight of this book.

I will say I felt disconnected when it came to Brent and Nav and because that really is supposed to be the focal point to this romance, it presented a problem.

Now, this is a friends to lovers story but, for me, it felt like a friendship only; and when we only get but a glimpse of Brent and Nav together romantically it really didn't really show the evolution of their relationship. I wish the author had expanded on them more.

Nav and his brother really made this book and because of them I am happy I read this. Because this was really supposed to be about Brent and Nav and their story into love was written as more of an afterthought made this a bit of a miss for me.
