Title: The List (Irresistible #3)
Author: Anne Calhoun
About this book: Daniel and Matilda have their lists, each list different from the other. She’s smart, idependent and successful and so is Daniel. She owns her own business and Daniel is an FBI agent. They meet through a mutual friend at a party and they’re not quite the same after that. Although this is #3, this book can be read as a standalone and in no particular order.
What I liked: I like the originality of their occupations. We get so much of the same thing that a change in scenery is nice. Daniel used to be a cop but went on to become an FBI agent but not so much of the undercover, getting shot at type of agent. Tilda’s jobs too are unique. She owns a shop where people order customized, high end stationaries as well as a match maker. They both have lists, but they’re unique as the person that writes it. The story starts off in the present and moves into the past, on how they met and how they got to where they currently are in their relationship. Daniel was so sure of it and did not give up! They both come from different background, family wise. It takes a traumatic event for Tilda to finally see and understand why Daniel is so close to his family. Once you find out what actually happened to Tilda, you will understand why she’s the way she is. But I don’t want to give too much away!
What I didn’t like so much: It’s not so much a dislike but an observation-where’s the epilogue? This is a standalone story and I would have really liked an epilogue. Something, anything! I guess it’s in our nature to always want MORE and I wanted more with Daniel and Tilda. But aside from that, there really isn’t anything I disliked about the book.
I received an ARC in return for an honest review

Who’s on top?
Matchmaker and stationery shop owner Matilda Davies brings people together. For those on her list, Tilda will find the man or woman of their dreams—whether it’s for an hour or a lifetime. But due to a painful past, the British expat has never put her own name on the list. Instead, she limits herself to emotionless and commitment-free hookups. Then she meets Daniel, who wants not just her body, but also her heart…
Daniel Logan hides the soul of a poet under the suit and tie of an FBI agent. Specializing in financial crimes, he pieces together stories of greed and ensures justice is done. He plays by the rules—until he meets Tilda. He’s drawn in by her passion as well as her mysteriousness. Daniel knows that no matter her secrets, he’s the perfect match for Tilda. But even pleasure doesn’t come with a guarantee…
