Ad executive Tomás Garcia shouldn't even be thinking about his daughter’s alluring dance teacher, Yazmine Fernandez. Burned by a shattering divorce, he's laser-focused on his career—and giving his young daughter, Maria, the secure home she deserves. Plus, he's certain that with her talent, Yaz will be leaving Chicago and heading back to Broadway as soon as she can. But Yaz's generous spirit and caring concern are sparking a desire Tomás can't resist—and doesn't want to let go . . .
For Yaz, good-looking workaholics like Tomás simply can't be part of her life ever again. She owes it to herself to get back her confidence and fulfill the dreams her papá could not. She's glad to spend time with Maria—and taste the family life she feels she can never have. And she’s sure that she and Tomás can keep their attraction under control because there's so much at stake. But each unexpected intimacy, each self-revelation, makes the fire between them grow hotter with every step—and every risk to their hearts . . .

“Oliveras’s outstanding debut tangles romance into family life…The realistic, multifaceted characters have interesting nuances, and Oliveras never stoops to employing contrived misunderstandings instead creating real obstacles with meaning and depth. Moving familial relationships and splashes of Puerto Rican culture round out this splendid contemporary and bode well for the future of the series.” - Publishers Weekly STARRED REVIEW
“Debuting author Oliveras takes all the right steps in this sweet romance….Oliveras’ refreshing tale is the start of a very special trilogy featuring a Chicago-based Latina and Latino cast, and it is packed with emotion, humor, and memorable characters. Fans of Samantha Chase will enjoy this heart-tugging love story by a promising newcomer.”– Booklist STARRED REVIEW
“Both protagonists' Latin heritage elevate the novel by introducing cultural influences and dynamics rarely portrayed in the genre. A sweet debut.”– Kirkus Reviews

Book one in her Matched to Perfection series about three Latina sisters is a tale of a career dance and a workaholic who have nothing in common but love and family. The story is well written and full of fun, welcoming characters. Readers will laugh and cry and be uplifted by the HEA. Oliveras is an author to watch.”- RT Book Reviews, 4 Stars
