So joke’s on the publisher for this one because I was totally going to buy this book anyway, on release day even, but now I don’t have to! Free book!! You guys lost my $8 or whatever!! Just kidding, I will probably still buy it. It was good!
So the premise here is that Alexa and Drew meet by chance in an elevator when it stalls in a fancy hotel. He’s there for the weekend, a groomsman in the wedding of his ex-girlfriend and one of his best friends. He isn’t looking forward to it. Alexa is there to celebrate her sister becoming partner in her law firm. They hit it off and spontaneously decide that Alexa will go with Drew to the wedding, which somehow turns into her pretending to be his girlfriend. But it’s pretty clear from the beginning that both of them are attracted to each other for real.
I was actually pleasantly surprised that the wedding itself is only in about the first third of the book. The rest tracks their relationship from them just being lust-bunnies all over each other to falling in love. There are some obstacles thrown in their way, but they’re mostly internal ones. There were some iffy little moments that slowed down the pace, and I thought there was a bit too much time spent on the middle part without much plot movement, but mostly I just had a fun time reading this. I’m definitely in for any future books Jasmine Guillory writes.
