(Synopsis) Oliver Shrike thinks ahead. He likes to make lists and tick off boxes. He plans, he plots, and he’s got everything under control.Until one day he sees my videos on his dating site. The private erotic videos I make just for him.
When I’m looking at the camera I can practically see his face. Hear the internal arguments. Feel his desire.
Because I’m that kind of woman.
You should delete my videos, Oliver Shrike. It’s your job to keep that dating site on the up and up.
But you don’t, do you?
You watch them. You get off to them. You crave them.
Every week I make a new one with you in mind. I’ve got you addicted to my body, my moans, my secrets.
I’ve hooked you now, Mr. Match. You’ve been in control for way too long and this is where it ends.
Writing this review is going to be hard. For those of you who are familiar with JA Huss' Mister series, you know that each of the five books has built on the last, adding more and more clues and asking more and more questions. Mr. Match is the final book in this series and is the culmination of everything that has come before in the other four books. You MUST read the other books in order to understand everything that happens in Mr. Match. But, I promise if you do that, your mind will be BLOWN.
Oliver Shrike is all grown up. And HOW. Prior to the Misters series, the last time we saw Oli was in Happily Ever After when he was just a pre-teen hanging with his sisters and his quasi-uncles and their families while on a Christmas ski vacation. Now, he's a 29-year-old business owner and sex God. Like father, like son.
Speaking of his father, going into Mr. Match, I expected to see Spencer and Roni in the book, seeing as how they're his parents and have featured in their own books by JA Huss (Bomb and Guns). But, they were noticeably absent. In hindsight, I think that is a good thing because - let's face it - Spencer and Roni are larger than life, and this really was Oliver's story to tell. He was and needed to be the focus.
But, even though Spencer wasn't in the book, he was still in the back of my mind, as it was easy to draw a lot of correlations between he and his son. In his own books, Spencer and his friends were involved in a dangerous game with violent players and lives on the line. They had to use their individual talents and lean on each other for help in order to come out on the other side alive and well and with their women at their sides. It seems the sins of the father have been visited on the son, because this is exactly what is happening now with Oliver and his friends Mac, Nolan, Weston and Paxton.
How do you plan anything when all you see in your future is threats? When you have things hanging over your head like rape, and secret societies, and murder? How do you live with the fact that even when you're in control, you're never in control?
Only now, Oli has more to fight for since the "one who got away" four years ago is back, and even though he knows she's keeping secrets and is involved in the dangerous drama that is quickly unraveling, he is determined to keep her around this time. Oliver has found his own "bombshell" in the form of Katya, and he will kill to keep her safe.
She is clean, she is good, and most of all, she is loyal in the only way that counts. She loves me, I know it. And I love her, she knows it. We're gonna work out this bullshit that's happening and come out the other side just fine.
In Mr. Match Julie takes time to tie up most of the loose ends that have been systematically created in each of the four previous books. As the details come out and players are revealed and eliminated, the pieces slowly start to fall into place. The master plot and how it all relates to the rape and the murder of a girl ten years earlier - the crime that brought these five guys together - slowly takes form, and the surprises don't stop coming until the very, VERY end. It's really incredible when you look all the way back at Mr. Perfect and the little seeds that were planted. They grew into this enormous twisty mind screw that will make you sit back and say, "WHOA" when you're all done.
There's one plot thread that wasn't quite tied up as neatly as I would've liked, but I have a sneaking suspicion that this particular detail will need its own entire book to straighten out. Which, of course I'm totally okay with.
It's been a crazy road full of secret societies, murderous plots, crazy mean girls, and more romance than you can shake a stick at. Oliver's story was probably the most romantic of them all (yes - even more romantic than Mr. Romantic). It's no surprise that Julie Huss saved the best for last.
I will throw everything away to keep her. I will betray everyone I know. I will make my own deal, sell my own soul if I can just walk beside her in this life. Hold her hand as we face the reality of our decisions together. Give her a home in me, in my love. A safe place where no such thing exists.
