Ex Match is the first book in the second season of the Perfect Match Agency series - ​​Perfect Match Springtime. This round, we have two new authors, Anna Wineheart and Amy Bellows, joining MM Farmer, Roe Horvat, and Wendy Rathbone.

From the blurb:

Sparks fly when the Perfect Match Agency matches two exes who had a bad, bad break-up. But the real fire starts after an emergency heat leads to a surprise pregnancy…


It’s been a year since my relationship with Michael imploded and my life fell apart, and I’m finally ready to date again. Especially with my heat about to come at any moment. I never thought I would resort to a matchmaking agency to help me find an alpha…and I never expected that alpha to be my ex.


My heart was in shreds after John kicked me out of the life we’d lived together for five years. So I when my therapist suggested I sign up with the Perfect Match Agency, I was skeptical. And then they went and matched me with John. My John! On top of that, what does he do on our “first date” but go into heat!

Now we have a far bigger problem than suddenly seeing each other after a year. We have a baby on the way and a mountain of baggage to sort through if we’re going to build a life for him. Can we take this second chance we’ve been given and do better the second time around, or will my family get in the way and ruin the best thing that’s ever happened to me?

Perfect Match Agency: Springtime is a multi-author gay romance series. The stories are non-shifter omegaverse, with high heat and low angst. Male pregnancy is possible in the world. Each individual book can be read as a standalone, features a new couple, and a satisfying happily ever after. Ex Match is the first book in the new series and features a second chance, emergency heat, surprise pregnancy, learning to love again, working it out, horrible parents, and a happily ever after.

Lilly's review:

This is a second chance low angst, high heat omegaverse story. Michael was in a long-term relationship with John, but due to misunderstandings and lots of unresolved issues, they ended up separating. Michael has not been with anyone since, and with his heat coming soon, he wants to find someone to not only spend his heat with but also create a relationship and family with.

The agency reaches back with a match - an 88.8% compatibility score - and it happens to be his ex, John! He goes into heat early and now with a child on the way, John must learn to stand up against family for mate and child. It’s a low angst quick read; if you’ve read the first season you know what to expect.

I really liked how they both knew that they were at fault for why their relationship did not work the first time, and through trials and errors, they actively worked on being better, communicating, and trusting one another.

It’s a short read, so it’s fast-paced and very insta love, but they already have a past so it didn’t feel too rushed since there’s history between the two.

Overall, I enjoyed Ex Match and excited for the next books in the new series.
