      1.5 starsThis was NOT a romance, and it wasn't a very good mystery. The paranormal element (one of the MCs, Jaron, can communicate with animals and feel their emotions) kept evolving to the point that I was rolling my eyes (and I'm typically not put off by paranormal elements in fiction). There was no chemistry between Jaron and Paolo, the cop who's investigating the missing child case that Jaron was hired to work on by the missing boy's parents. The boy, Matt, disappeared along with his beloved [...]

      Hm. This is hard, and I hate being one of those people bc they always annoy me when they say things like "there was more mystery than romance." I mean yeah it happens but so what if it's well written. And this WAS well written. I was so stoked for another book from the author bc I adored When One Door Opens. I loved Paulo and Jaron (tho that name stuck in my craw for some reason but names are names and I don't knock off my star for that).My problem was that indeed there was almost NO romance. Us [...]

      DNF-ed at 40%.Yaelah buku apaan ini, gak ada bagus2nya sama sekali. Chemistry nya ga dapet sama sekali,mana banyak kata2 aneh dan insulting pulak.Keliatan banget di tulis amatiran. Misteri nya gak oke, kebanyakan karakter ga jelas nya, gak lovable banget.Ya udah. Bodo ah. Buang2 waktu nih buku.Agreed with Dani here

      Another Winner from JD RuskinI wanted to read Finding Matt for two reasons. Firstly, I really liked the author's first book, When One Door Opens, and secondly because I was intrigued by the idea of a psychic who has a connection to animals. I have to say that the book certainly delivered on its premise.Jaron Greenberg, a shy young man who grew up on the wrong side of the tracks in the small town of Stanton, is eking out an insignificant existence as a sort of 'pet whisperer' to people who pay hi [...]

      Now this is the kind of MM book I love.Totally focused on story all the sex comes at the end so I did not have to lose track of the story while the guys got it on lol. But I still got the beginning of a romance brewing watching these two.Jaron was a wonderful character. Even though we only get a glimpse of his past he still called out to me.Paulo was the kind of cop I love. No nonsense but willing to listen.Stephen I would love to read more on he definitely needs his own true love story.The myst [...]

      Un expectedly, I found this book, and I loved it. Sure, it doesn't have a lot of romance, but it is a light and funny read. Sure, poor but sweet Jaron is serving a lot of clichés, but I fell so much in love with Bear! I want a Newfie like that!And I certainly want a sequel. There is a lot of potential for Steven, Devin, ,we need to know the story of the evil agent, and certainly see how Jaron's love life (and his professional live) will evolve. I want more!!!

      (Some spoilers included at the end.)Jaron is a pet psychic who works for his best friend at a dog salon. He barely scrapes by, lives in the back room of the salon and has the most amazing dog ever- Bear.Paulo is the skeptical cop assigned to the case Jaron is called in on. Matt, a six year-old boy and his dog Pixie have gone missing and Jaron is asked to help find the dog and thus (hopefully) the boy. Paulo doesn’t want to believe in Jaron’s skills, even though he is immediately attracted to [...]

      I loved this story. It was more intense and fascinating than I was expecting. A great mystery and a fantastic buildup of tension and intricacy.Jaron is such a sweetheart. He can communicate with animals psychically. His whole process and interaction was very interesting. I respected his integrity and desire to prove himself. He pursued helping animals even though most of his reward was in the form of gratitude rather than money. He was used to the scorn of many in his small community first for h [...]

      A Joyfully Jay review. 4.5 starsThis is first and foremost a mystery that just happens to have a M/M romance element to it and, as far as a mystery goes, I liked that we are privy to the identity of the antagonist and have to sit back and watch the characters struggle to solve the crime and bring Matt home. The one thing I did notice though is that the remaining characters were quite shallow and two-dimensional, even Jaron’s BFF Stephen, and Matt’s parents, who really would have benefited fr [...]

      Cutiest story with pets I've ever read. I don't usually like reading stories with pets since I can't really understand the infatuation with them. Jaron's dog Bear was an awesome protective dog. I loved seeing their interaction at the start and throughout the book. The protectiveness Bear showed towards Jaron was adorable. It was cool to read about and pretty sweet. I loved that the author try to make this a humorous read. I was laughing when Silva tried to bribe Bear with a hotdog. Also at the i [...]

      2.5 starsIf this book had not have been marketed at a romance novel, I might have rated it higher. As it stands, it's more mystery than romance, which left me very disappointed. There isn't much chemistry between the MCs, and I think Jaron's relationship with Stephen had much more chemistry. The mystery aspect is already revealed to us in the beginning so that doesn't engage us much. Kind of disappointed in this read since I enjoyed Ruskin's other novel, but still not a terrible read. I wouldn't [...]

    12. Liz L. on said:

      It's difficult to classify this book because the romance is very much secondary (they don't get intimate until the end) and it's not really a mystery because from the start, we know who had Matt and why, but this story really drew me in. I enjoyed the characters and their stories, and hope that Ruskin writes more adventures with this couple.

    13. Jack Pyke on said:

      A good mystery, and I have to admit I didn't mind how the romance played out almost secondary to plot I love a mystery and this one hit the mark on that score.

    14. Candice on said:

      Wasn't expecting this to be so focused on the mystery plot. It was good, but I was looking forward to more of the relationship part.

As the new guy with Stanton PD, Paulo Silva is tasked with babysitting Jaron and to say he’s skeptical of Jaron’s ‘abilities’ isn’t too far from the truth.

      5 Heart Review by KimberelyI must say that I was pleasantly surprised at how much I liked this book. A cop falls for the psychic while working a case together. That’s a plot that has been done many times before yet Ruskin found a way to make it fresh and new.This book was suspenseful with great characters and a believable plot line. This was more of a mystery than a romance but that was more than okay. There was a wonderful balance of mystery, suspense, with a touch of the paranormal thrown in [...]

    17. Petlover15 on said:

      While I wouldn't recommend this book to readers who want a lot of romance between the MCs, I didn't miss it in this plot - in fact, I would have questioned romps between the sheets while the chance of finding the little boy diminished with every day he was missing. Finding Matt (as the title says) had priority and held my interest until the end. I didn't mind learning early on WHO took him - it didn't take away the suspense of the actual search. As a big animal lover I enjoyed reading about Jaro [...]

    18. Bobbette on said:

      So, I'm not sure what to classiffy this story. It's not a mystery because we know the Who, When, How and and Why of the villain from chapter one and we know Who, Why and How the hero will solve the mystery created by the villian from chapter two. It's not a romance because the relationship circumstances and dynamics of the two solving the case doesn't allow for romance until after the villian is caught and the case closed towards the end. It's not erotic because we get one kiss at 65% in and one [...]

      Original review on Molly LollyFour stars!I really enjoyed this book. I enjoyed the fact that Jaron and Paulo waited through most of the book to be together. They both realized that during an investigation wasn’t the time for romance. However once they did get together, they burned up the pages on my Kindle. There were a bunch of lines that made me laugh and it was great to bring a bit of light heartedness to the story. When Paulo and Jaron first met, I felt bad that Paulo kept trying to prove [...]

      3.5* but as I enjoyed it, gets the bump.A missing child mystery where pet psychic Jaron is called in to help by tracking the family dog who is with the missing child.It is quite a skill to keep a book going when you know the protagonist about half way through.I enjoyed the whys and whyfors of the kidnapping. I also liked the slow attraction between Paulo and Jaron.Having said this, I do think the book didn't really grab me with the intensity which it could have. I didn't feel the intensity of af [...]

      EnjoyableOk I'm going to start by saying this is not a romance but a mystery, I'm ok with that.It starts with the first chapter in the mind of the abductor and I liked this, I think it was needed, it really showed just how mentally unstable Marnie was. If this wasn't included it would have been easy to just make her out to be the cold blooded kidnapper. It doesn't excuse what she did, but made her a 3 dimensional character not a cut out copy of a character.I love animals and the idea of being ab [...]

      Reviewed by Brandilyn for Prism Book Alliance. When you start a mystery telling the reader exactly who the baddie is, you have to make the journey to capture said baddie worthwhile. Unfortunately, I am not sure that JD Ruskin quite made the grade with Finding Matt. There are parts of the story that were intriguing, and parts that left me wondering why they were included at all.

      I've read this book twice because I love a good mystery. No, it's not your "traditional" romance novel but it's still a very good read. It's a mixture of whodunit, "paranormal" of the psychic kind, and mix in some relationships for a great story. Don't hesitate; just read it! You won't be disappointed. 5 stars

    24. Amanda on said:

      Hope there is more books!A good book for me has character development, humour and great MC with a few quirky side characters. This had everything. Slow steady development and a lovely ending. Unfortunately can see many more books involving both MC and of course Bear! Well done last vex it

      Blurb's accurate, book's better.I think I could happily read tissue labels written by this author! Wonderful style, great story and character development, no sex overload, tenderness and angst thrown in the mix - gotta love it.Definitely will be reading it again.
