Met her match, Jude Deveraux

In small towns, no one lets the facts get in the way of juicy gossip…
Terri Rayburn is a girl with a reputation. She doesn’t deserve it, but having grown up on the outskirts of Summer Hill, Virginia, she knows how small towns work. The only way to deal with vicious gossip is to ignore it. So she keeps to herself as she runs the summer resort on Lake Kissel.
When she returns home from a short trip to find a handsome stranger living in her house, she smells a rat. Someone is trying to fix her up, and she has to admit that Nate Taggert is just her type. However, Nate is engaged to the daughter of the mayor and strictly off-limits.
Nate and Terri form an unlikely friendship while he throws himself into life at the lake. As Nate starts to hear rumors about Terri he’s confused. Knowing how smart, beautiful and strong she is, he’s determined to discover the source of the gossip. Terri doesn’t want to revisit the past, but Nate won’t stop until he discovers the truth—even if the truth might be more than either of them can handle.
Set in the beloved fictional town of Summer Hill, Virginia, Met Her Match examines the tensions between the wealthy townspeople, the summer vacationers and the working-class people who keep the town and resort running. Told with humor and heart, Met Her Match is the perfect summer escape.

Terri é uma jovem marcada pelo passado. Depois que sua mãe sumiu misteriosamente, a garota precisou lidar com vários rumores sobre supostos amantes da mãe e, por conta disso, ganhou uma fama indesejada e não merecida.

Ao conhecer o comprometido Nate, Terri vai precisar de muita força de vontade para não agarrar o cara pois ele é tudo que ela sempre sonhou: sedutor, forte, trabalhador, ama o Lago e, de quebra, tem uma afinidade visível com ela. Seu único defeito é ser noivo da meiga, perfeita, amada e doce filha do prefeito.
Terri trabalha duro no lago onde o pai junto com dois amigos construíram uma área maravilhosa envolvendo moradias, hotel e diversão. Com a chegada de Nate, toda a dinâmica de vida do Lago vai mudar e com o retorno de Stacy para a cidade nova reviravolta irá ocorrer pois Nate está em dúvida sobre seus sentimentos.

Apesar de ter me irritado com certos comportamentos de Nate amei a forma que ele procurou para se redimir. A resolução sobre o mistério da mãe de Terri foi muito bom e bem construído dentro da trama e gostei do toque de humor que a escrita usou para suavizar um pouco a carga dramática do livro.

In English

Terri is a woman marked by the past. After her mother mysteriously disappeared, the girl had to deal with various rumors about her mother's alleged lovers, and as a result gained an unwanted and undeserved reputation.

Upon meeting the compromised Nate, Terri will need a lot of willpower not to grab the guy because he is everything she has always dreamed of: seductive, strong, hardworking, loves the Lake and has a visible affinity with her. His only fault is to be engaged to the perfect, beloved and sweet daughter of the mayor.

Terri works hard at the lake where her father and two friends have built a wonderful area involving housing, hotel and entertainment. With Nate's arrival, the entire Lake people's dynamic will change and with Stacy's return to the city turnaround will occur as Nate is in doubt about his feelings.

Although I was annoyed by certain behaviors of Nate I loved the way he sought to redeem himself. The resolution on the mystery of Terri's mother was very good and well built within the plot and I liked the touch of humor that the writing used to soften the book's dramatic bit.
