The Wedding Gift by The New York Times and USA Today best seller Lucy Kevin is the first fun, sweet contemporary romance in the Four Weddings and a Fiasco series.
After Julie Delgado’s restaurant closes, she temporarily takes over the catering position at the Rose Chalet, a full-service San Francisco wedding venue. She plans to dazzle the bride and groom so the Chalet’s owner will keep her around, but fate has other plans for her when the bride’s brother shows up for the first food tasting.
Andrew Kyle is not only the Cuisine Channel’s Edgy Eats host and chef, but his recent review of Julie’s restaurant was the final nail in its coffin. Once he meets Julie at the Rose Chalet, he’s certain she’s playing it safe. And he wants nothing more than to be the one to break her guarded passions loose.
But despite the undeniable sparks between Julie and Andrew - and the fact that he seems to believe in her when no one else does - can she afford to be taking risks with her cooking, with her career…or with her heart?

First let me say this is the first audiobook where I've actually found a glaring mistake. It's chapter 10 page 72 or something funny like that. I guess they forgot to edit that out.
But that aside, which was really just an amusing sidenote - I had a problem with this book and it's just that they kept going over and over again on the same issues.
I hate to admit it but when I got to the point in the book when you found out she had only worked at the place for 3 I was like seriously? It has only been three days? As much as she had been rambling on, it felt like a lifetime.
Another thing that bothered me is that they never really dated or had any sort of courtship. They just went from meeting to I LOVE YOU immediately.
I don't know about you but if a guy I only met 3 or 4 days ago and had only been on one actual date with told me he loved me, I would be creeped out. I get that she slept with him on the first date and that made them feel more connected, but love? Seriously? After only knowing a guy a few days and only having gone on a single date? Okay then.
The story was ok, typical romance plot, nothing exciting or surprising. It was clean, not explicitly sexual (thank you). The voice performance was over dramatic and sometimes I had to really focus on the story to avoid the annoyance of it.
