The Matchmaker

It is said that if you put your name in locker 420, the Matchmaker will find you your perfect match. So what happens when the arrogant spoiled brat is captivated and the matchmaker meets her match?

Amy Thinks: The Matchmaker was one of the very first stories I read when I joined the Fictionpress world. Since the first time (yes, FIRST time... meaning I've read it multiple times) I enjoyed this story, it's become one of my all time favorites. Although there are numerous spelling errors (she's admitted it isn't edited), it doesn't detract from the overall amazingness The Matchmaker is. Granted, I understand that spelling/grammar errors are some people's biggest turnoffs. But if you are able to look past them, I can assure you you won't regret it.

When you're unlucky in the lurve department and just want a date, sometimes you wish you had someone to help you find that perfect match. If you happen to stick a note into locker 420, Emma Laycha will do just that. As The Matchmaker, she's managed to become this enigma around the school. Someone that everyone loves and respects. Except Darien McGavern, the ever so arrogant, wealthy, heartbreaker that has a personal vendetta against Emma's secret identity. So things get interesting when the girl he's paid no attention to for the past three years of school, witnesses him slip a note into locker 420. Even more interesting- he asks for The Matchmaker, hoping to make her fall for him so he can break her heart.

What makes this a wonderful read is that StormDancer has managed to create a wonderful balance between the arguing-turned-friendship between Emma and Darien with the The Matchmaker's workings. Add in Emma's secrets and Darien's change from the little rich boy...and you have one hell of a read. So go enjoy--let the emotional rollercoaster and mental head bopping ensue.
